Enjoy it very much. Must say when we came a few years ago the service was much better, had to ask for plates to be taken away and had to request the dessert menu...small things but staff seemed more attentive last time. Still a fantastic atmosphere and location. Would return without a doubt.

I was expecting a lot more based on pictures of the location, but the ambiance during the daytime wasn’t as nice as the pictures they show at night. They had an overhead tent, so it wasn’t open like I imagined it would be with the sunlight coming down. The food and dessert was pretty average tasting for the cost. I expected a lot more of a luxury experience, but it was a bit mediocre. I also disliked the occurrence when two waiters were talking and laughing with each other as they starred right at our table. As soon as I made eye contact they immediately stopped and looked away making it that much more obvious they were talking about us.

The views alone are a reason to eat here!! Views aside the food was out of this world! Best food we had in Venice by far. All the staff were extremely friendly as well! We can't wait to come back.

Food was not that great. They charge a pretty large fee per person for the table(changing of the linens and etc.). I think the cost of food is really to reflect the experience of eating on the canal. It has a beautiful view and if you want to dine for the experience of eating on the canal this may be a place to book. If you are looking for amazing food I would choose a different place.

Despite having mentioned in my reservation and in person that my son has a nut allergy the waiter recommended a dish with pesto for him that is always made with nuts.
The service was extremely lacking and they charged us 9 euro per person for the bread and olive oil, even though most entrees are priced at 50 euro and above.
The portion sizes are tiny - a pasta dish is about the size of the palm of my hand (I'm 5ft 1")
Very disappointing. Even the view cannot make up for the terrible experience all around.

Look, the Griti Terrace is probably worth a visit just for the view. I went there on my first Friday evening in Venice. It is right along the water, and part of an upscale Marriott property. I had a pricey (nothing is inexpensive in Venice) glass of champagne, and they brought over sone olives (good), corn nuts (not bad) and potato chips (don’t eat them). I sipped and snacked, then switched to a pricey Chardonnay and the risotto of the day.

I enjoyed, snapped photos and made my friends jealous by posting the waterway scenes and blue summer skies on line.

Then, the bill came 110 Euros - over $120!!! And oh, did they forget to mention that there was a charge for the half-eaten appetizers they put in front of me.

As I left, I passed couple who were sitting ten feet away on a curb just outside the Gritti Terrace. They were enjoying a pizza and a bottle of Prosecco they’d bought down the street for 25 Euros. Their view? At least as good as mine.

We indirectly complained about the pasta portion size and the really nice waiter mentioned it to the chef who surprisingly made another portion.
Fantastic service with genuine friendliness

Most likely visit again when next in Venice.

It was lovely sitting on the terrazza and enjoying the view of the canal and the Santa Maria della Salute church. The food and service were wonderful too! It was pricey, yes, but worth it for such a memorable experience.

This is the place to come if you want to feel like a 1960s movie star for a few hours. It’s extremely expensive, the food/drinks are good, but not great. The ambience and are view are incredible though...a unique and special experience. If that’s not enough to balance the hefty price tag for you, you may want to choose another restaurant. But we had our first lunch here upon arriving, and it absolutely put us in the Venice mindset.

Spendy but a fun treat while on vacation. This was our first stop after getting off the water bus our first hour in Venice. I had seen the place in the movie '15:17 to Paris' while on our plane ride LAX-Rome and thought it looked neat. Made us a reservation and we went in for a cocktail in the late afternoon and enjoyed the view of the all the hustle and bustle on the grand canal. The drinks are VERY expensive but we had a beer and the free cocktail munchie tray they bring you. It's a nice high end hotel right on grand canal, their cocktail terrace on the canal is very small & quaint.

We arrived for a 4.45 table. We felt quite uncomfortable as the the tables on the terrace were being removed while we were eating leaving us as the only table on the terrace. It was clearly the end of service before the dinner service inside. Felt quite neglected. The tuna and salmon starter were however great as was the view. All spoilt by the service!!

I booked this through open table 2 months ago for a surprise trip for my boyfriends birthday. I had a confirmation email the day before asking if I could still make it. When I got to the restaurant on his birthday id booked months ago & had a reminder sent to me yesterday.. again didn’t offer to help the situation. I had to say I want to still be sat outside. After all the rudeness and unwillingness to help I decided to only stay for one drink. I would have happily spent money on food & a few cocktails but the service I received was shocking.
