VenueGreat place for special occasion and fine dinning. The staff is exceptional. Food was excellent.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant SurpriseThis was our first visit to Venue. It was graduation day, but we were able to get a reservation through Open Table. The food was delicious from the Duck Tacos, Beet Caprese Salad, Seafood Soup and Black & Bleu Burger. We will stop in again to try more from their menu5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good asThe food was very good as usual. Service was also very good. The main restaurant is a bit noisy as has been mentioned in several previous reviews. However it is still a great place to eat.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI celebrated my second anniversaryI celebrated my second anniversary and had a wonderful night. Alex was our server and was very knowledgeable and informative and made us feel special.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our anniversaryWe enjoyed our anniversary celebration very much! The Chateau Briand for two was cooked to perfection. We really liked the Lobster Rangoon and the Spinach Marscapone Risotto. Service was excellent; our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The wine list is the best in town. My only complaint would be to have nicer "dinner" music.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectI can't thank you enough for all your staff did for my wife's 40th birthday. It was truly above and beyond. We've never had a dining experience quite like this. The personalized attention made it feel as though we were regulars when this was actually our first time there. The staff was courteous, friendly & made us feel very welcomed. The food was superb. In a word, the night was "perfect". Thanks.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, we had a great experienceAs usual, we had a great experience at the Venue. Mathew took very good care of us, the food was outstanding and the drinks were not over made.
Always a good time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was superb - butEverything was superb - but the center piece in the middle of the dining room needs attention3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for dining hereFirst time for dining here -- no disappointments -- this was a great find in every respect!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and I have onlyMy boyfriend and I have only visited the Venue a couple of times, but after this experience we will most definitely be returning more often.
Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and kind. He was attentive but not always at our table which I liked especially since this was a special date night.
After enjoying our appetizer we ordered entrees and about 15 minutes later, our waiter came over and apologized that he forgot to ring in our food items. Not many places do that and so I was very pleased he actually not only apologized, but also admitted to what he had done wrong. He also brought us a free dessert at the end of the night to thank us for our patience and kindness during his "mess up".
Great Restaurant, AWESOME staff!!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise rating is moderate inNoise rating is moderate in the bar area but the main dining room is pretty loud (poor acoustics). However, the food is wonderful3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWish I had received all myWish I had received all my food that I had asked to be boxed. They choose what to box up. Food was great, only wish I could have had all of my leftovers.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ended up eating in theWe ended up eating in the lounge so the noise was a little louder than what one might find in the dining area. I ordered the seafood combination dinner. Considering the price of $26.00 I was a bit surprised with the small amount of food that was served. Only two shrimp, a small piece of salmon and two pieces of scallops. They were jumbo size shrimp but this was a very small portion of food for the price. It tasted great but not a great value. Dinner didn't include a salad either. If it did that would have made a difference. Service was excellent.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good restaurant withVery good restaurant with an impressive wine list! The portions were generous as well. I would definitely return.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was suburb, the SteakDinner was suburb, the Steak Au Poivre paired with the La Pifara Primitivo was to die for. The only thing we were not jazzed about was the bread pudding the combination of the blue berries and walnuts was odd. The Dow's port wine with it was excellent though. I would recommend this place to anyone!2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI had been to Venue before,I had been to Venue before, but this was my boyfriend's first time here since he lives in Florida. We had fantastic service (I think her name was Michelle?...she had previously worked at Red Lobster). She gave great suggestions as to what to order, and overall took impeccable care of us! The atmosphere was very calm, romantic, and decorated perfectly for Valentine's Day. Thanks Venue, we will be back!2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite RestaurantIt is our favorite restaurant. The staff is not only friendly but provides great service. We really enjoy the seafood specials. However, the one dish you can't miss if you are having lunch or a light dinner is their pecan bleu salad.2/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was excellent.The food and service was excellent.
