WOW, what a meal and ambience. We went across this restaurante and it was just faboulous, from start to finish, the desserts are awesome, and the service couldnt be better.
Simon's 'The Bruce' is the cocktail I had at the sit up bar. What a delicious, fresh and flavour layered upscale drink. Delicious. Fun to sit and watch the creations being made. Had the fish tacoes as an appy and they were fine. Very much enjoyed the banter of bartenders, Simon and Sam. This is a great place for a... More
My wife and I went to Veneto to find out what all the buzz was about and would go again in a heartbeat. The food was playful and creative, the atmosphere was lively and our server knew what she was doing -- very helpful, not obtrusive and full of great suggestions. This is not a quiet restaurant; this is a... More
We have stayed at the Rialto several times and never eaten at the restaurant. It was a mistake. The Veneto is a tapas type bar. It is a lovely setting, very warm and cool. The bartender made our daughter an awesome drink (spin the wheel choice) and she dubbed it the best cocktail ever. We of course, don't really drink... More
We dropped by last night on our way to dinner at another restaurant where we had reservations. We received such a warm welcome, and great seating etc. that we hated to leave. We knew we had to return. So we showed up tonight (stopped in about 1.5 hours earlier to make reservations). I cannot say enough about the welcome we... More
This is a successful rescue of a downtown heritage building, part hotel, coffee shop and tapa/cocktail den. The coffee during the day is excellent, serious baristas. At night the focus is on the bar with stools right at the centre of cocktail action, the comfy lounge, and the roomy restaurant. This is a vibrant night time scene, so reservations recommended...

After a long day of travel yesterday from Illinois, we decided to walk right downstairs to Veneto at the Hotel Rialto. What a gem of a restaurant. The ambiance is young and vibrant and the service outstanding. Our server, Jacqueline, was very attentive and sweet. She suggested cocktails for us based on our likes....she was right on target. I had... More
My husband and I tried this restaurant for the first time, and it won't be our last! Its was amazing! The food was full of flavour and cooked to perfection. Awesome drink selection as well. Atmosphere was great, and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely be returning, highly recommended!
I ate a lot during my stay in Victoria, but this place had the BEST tapas. I ate the entire plate of brussel sprouts by myself one evening. One night the cheese fondue, meatballs and loads of drinks. Then the mini dessert plate - bread pudding and smore crossiants! YUM!!
Highly recommended. The tapas are unique and full of flavor. Definitely try the custom nachos and ribs. The drinks from the custom mixologist are fabulous and fun.
