My friend and I had a similar experience as Heather Pemberton, another 1 star reviewer. Very unpleasant experience with the waiter. The waiter misinterpreted our order. I thought oh well but then he tried to turn it into an argument. That waiter needs to tone it down, he's too strict/ tense and becomes rude very quickly. Also the table knocking the waiters do with their hands to communicate to the chefs in the kitchen is very annoying. They are constantly knock knock knocking on wood to try to get the kitchen to speed up. GooglePlace - November 2017

Upscale restaurant with beautiful interior. Maybe the best one in Venice. Staffs are professional. However the portion was too small! I orders fish main course, but if was about 1/3 of an appetizer. Prepare to spend 70 Euro per person to avoid hunger. GooglePlace - October 2017

Though slightly pricey, but my wife and i still thought that this place had given us the best dining experience (ambience, food, wine and service) in Venice. We especially love the starter - absolutely fresh, sweet red shrimps; the historical venetian dish namely baked eel (this dish is mind blowing) and cuttlefish spaghetti infused in fresh sea-food taste. The extensive wine list and good keeps were the main reason we came to this restaurant and true enough we ended up having 2 bottles to 2 pax after having a decent enough bottle - Kairos, 2013 introduced by the wine connoisseur of the restaurant who is able to give essential extracts about the grapes of the wine. Thank you for the lovely experience. GooglePlace - October 2017

Quite a magnificent eatery tucked away on a side street near San Marco. Bistro de Venice serves some of the finest cuisine I've had in Italy. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was classy yet cozy. Reservations recommended. GooglePlace - October 2017

My friend and I dined at this restaurant during our trip to Italy in the past few weeks. We are both working professionals. I am in my late 20s, he is in his late 30s. This is the first time I have traveled out of the country and so I was very excited to be able to go to Venice, Florence, and Rome. My experience at this restaurant was by far the worst experience I had in Italy. I did not know until I arrived that the waiters always ask you if you want still or sparkling water. Our waiter, Walter, asked us "Do you want water?" so I replied "Yes, please." thinking that it would be like in the U.S. where we would get tap water. Walter and I then stared at each other for a solid five seconds (he was waiting on the still vs. sparkling confirmation, I realized later) until I nodded and smiled, thinking he didn't hear me the first time. Apparently this was misinterpreted as patronizing because it triggered Walter and the reaction I got back in return was a sarcastic nod and smile, exaggerated shrug and eye roll as if he was saying "AND? (stupid American)". I looked at my friend in disbelief. After that, the experience at this restaurant went downhill. I asked for the tasting course and wine pairing to go with it. The menu gives you two options for a wine pairing- classic and a more expensive option. I was midway through my sentence asking for the classic pairing when Walter interrupted me to say "I am talking to the gentleman now." The group to our left was a group of Germans and Walter cracked jokes with them, smiled, was jovial, and even gave them two complimentary bottles of wine. We were mostly ignored and when he came to our table to explain the wines that were paired with our meal we got a cold explanation. I asked where the bathroom was and Walter gestured at the bathroom in a dismissive way. We both paid well over $120 each for this meal and I don't expect to be fawned over but I do expect general politeness and respect. One star for the worst service I have ever received at a restaurant. GooglePlace - July 2017
