I stayed at the Hotel Rialto, which is where Veneto resides. I sat at the bar and had a cheese plate - the goat cheese was great. I had the steak and potatoes - steak was done the way I wanted. I would return here...More

Excellent service. I had the cheese plate and a beer. I was’t very hungry and it hit the spot. Went back the next evening for a steak and it was excellent. You won’t regret it if you eat here.

We were looking for a great tapas place and found out this is no longer a Tapas place. The bar looked good but we moved on anyway. BTW there is a great tapas place on Trounce alley.

The food was delicious. We didn’t hold back and had two apps and two main. All four dishes were delicious which is rare to experience. Only thing missing from the restaurant is louder music or a live music. A little more ambiance needed.

Stopped in the lounge for a lively drink and then into the restaurant for Humboldt squid and steak. The new menu is great, staff are wonderful and the ambience outstanding. The lounge is hopping and the restaurant doesn’t have kids music blaring.

Continuing an epic night out, we hit up the bar at Veneto. Having already eaten, we were not interested in food, so I won't speak to that. The bar is exactly our kind of place, and wouldn't be out of place in Toronto or Seattle:...More

I visited Veneto on a busy Friday night with my significant other. This was my first time back since the renovations and my first overall feeling walking through the door was "Wow!". I loved the old space but I must say, the new space looks...More

Be sure to check out the tasting menu available if ordered 24 hours in advance. Open for lunch and dinner.
