We had a great experience from the drinks to the really good food! The Falcon Punch made with rum and a variety of other ingredients served in a tea pot was unique and refreshing. Both the spicy shrimp in a martini glass and the lobster...More

After a recent renovation, the bar has been expanded and continues to be a happening place to cocktail. Unfortunately the new bar is to the restaurants detriment. It now feels like a cross between Earl's and The Keg and caters to cruise ship groups and...More

I went with friends. I was offered "gluten-free" crackers, which weren't gluten-free. They offered me crudities, which were fine. It is very troubling that the kitchen didn't know what was gluten-free. Too bad,because the food was good.

Great wine list and excellent food. We did not have reservations, but the traffic was moving along and we got in in ten minutes. The thin crust pizza was awesome.

We posted already under the hotel review. To recap, the food and service is amazing! My partner had the steak. Mmmmm, so tender! I had the calamari and brussel sprouts which were tender and delicious as well. Prices are on par with other restaurants downtown....More

A stylish sophisticated urban lounge in the heart of downtown Victoria, Veneto is the ideal place to unwind with co-workers and friends. Adorned in exotic wood, leather and Italian marble, Veneto seduces patrons with its extensive cocktail menu and its savoury offerings from our chef.
Every entree is presented tapas style and comprised of three unique dishes within the entree. Our executive chef Tod Bosence has designed flavours that are unique yet complimentary, and that provide an engaging taste experience, ideal for sharing.

Veneto's bartenders led by Simon Ogden, display their knowledge and passion with a classically inspired cocktail list. Fresh squeezed citrus, only top shelf spirits and exacting techniques.

Veneto offers its patrons a small but significant wine selection, both by bottle and by the glass. We specialize in North American Craft beer as well as boast the largest selection of bourbons in the city.
