    Had a great experience. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. I ordered a dessert item (French Toast) and my order just happened to be put in after the orders of a very large brunch party (in the party room). I thought for sure I'd be waiting 30 minutes or more. The expediter saw my order and came over to my table to let me know he had moved my order up so I wouldn't have to wait for the entire party to get served. Outstanding attention to detail. This expediter is worth his weight in gold. I hope management has kept their eye on this valuable employee.

    I went with family for my birthday and it was exactly as expected. The food was great and the service was just as good. The waiter I had has served my family before and you can tell he loves his job. Happy and pops in every now again to make sure everything is going well as it should be. The food was amazing. Beets fries and Charcuterie board for starters were delicious. The fresh made blueberries jam with the goat cheese was perfect. My steak and gorgozola sauce was cooked perfectly. My wifes duck and son's tortellini with filet was great. Same thing with the deserts. This is a great little neighborhood spot that packs a lot of flavor and while being cozy and romantic.

    Appetizer-Gouda and spinach dip was excellent. Came out bubbly and hot. Husbands patty melt was great. Filet tortellini had great flavor just wish the noodles and sauce were a little hotter temperature wise. Grace was our server and she was so helpful and timely, she made the dining experience very enjoyable

    Older hostess seemed irritated we were there. Tried to place us in a back room with extremely bright lighting, despite us having a reservation for the restauarant. When I told her we didn't want to sit back there, she scoffed and begrudgingly found us an available table inside of the actual restaurant. I come here weekly and she never seems very pleasant but today she was extra grumpy.

    Have eaten here numerous times, it's always okay, generally good menu items, but it seems that something always stands out as not right. This time it was an overdone Buffalo Burger. Asked for medium rare, got medium well. Waitperson agreed and passed my disappointment on to the kitchen. She then took a % off the charge for the burger. That's nice, but what I'd like MUCH more would be a meal experience that I could sing about to others. But nope, whenever I've eaten there, it's as I said okay, but I don't want to shout it from the rooftops. I suspect the Venue folks don't care a whole lot, as it's always busy. But Lincoln isn't much of a restaurant town, and mediocre seems to suit most people here. Hence the success of places that serve overdone burgers.

    This restaurant was highly recommended to us by our friends as a place for a special night out. Our table was noisy and cold with regular drafts from the doors. The steaks were advertised as prime, but didn't measure up. We have a direct producer connection supplying our home with beef. We have a favorite restaurant in town, and we will return to it for our special nights.

    Always order the brussel sprouts, so yummy. The Asian salad was fab and filling. Retired from hospitality industry after 43 years with 13 owning my own business. I had great employees that worked hard, took great care of our customers and were very dedicated and loyal. If I still had my business I would try to take our waitress away from you. She was FAB.

    Very noisy and difficult to hear even though we were at a table in the bar. Food was pretty good. Didn’t get the burger because it’s always over done. Used to get the French onion soup and had chicken salad but that’s no longer an option…too bad. Had a terrific waitress. She was outstanding.

    Had to wait until 8:15pm for our reservation due to being "busy" but when we arrived at 7:30pm to have a drink prior, there were more open tables than full tables. When asked "did a lot of people cancel?" the answer was "no. Confusing. Nonetheless, we also were seated right next to the "to-go" prep table....very inconvenient and unpleasant.

    As usual, the food was excellent. But I had made reservations, which were confirmed, but there was no table for us in the main dinning room, so we were seated in the "back" room which was large with two tables for couples and a large table which seated eight (and eight very loud ladies sat there). No atmosphere. Why make a reservation if you don't hold a table for me!! And I wasn't late. VERY DISAPPOINTING!
