Rebecca was a wonderful server. And we all enjoyed our food
We went here for date night and it was an excellent choice! The food is delicious and the ambiance is really nice. There is also a cute patio area outside if the weather is nice. Definitely try the cocktails here - they are so unique and tasty!!
My first visit on 10/2 with my daughter (who lives in Carrboro) was fabulous. We will be back.
Great food and a great outdoor environment
The food was delicious!! Loved sitting outside!!
Huge portions and good food for our Parents weekend first dinner
Venable was fantastic. It was wine Wednesday (which we didn’t know,) so that was awesome. My daughter also had one of the signature cocktails and it was delicious. We had fried chicken, udon noodles, and fish tacos. They were all superb. And chocolate mousse for dessert. Yum! We sat outside and it was lovely (the inside is also super cool looking, but also felt cozy.) Our server was great! Can’t wait to go back.
We’ve always had a great meal here! Love the atmosphere, and the food is very fresh and creatively prepared.
Ate outside on a beautiful day evening. Nice outdoor space even if parking lot adjacent. Food was good. My chicken was a bit overdone but fine. Homemade tagliatelle with creamy mushroom sauce was very good. Standout for us was the beet salad with chevre. Really outstanding. Service was good--sat us on time, efficient table service, a bit of a longish wait between salad and entree but not an issue for us since we were unhurried. I wish the server would have pointed out that the beet salad and chicken both included a lot of greens -- I probably would have chosen a different dish had I understood the chicken was served with essentially a salad on top. But these are quibbles. Overall, good food, competent service. We will be returning.
Always a delight dining at Venable! The staff is warm and friendly and the food is cooked to perfection.
Nice menu and server and hostess both recommended fried chicken. Instead of the usual pieces of dipped and deep fried chicken, they pound it thin and thickly coat it before frying. Cones out dry and inedible. Then they cover it with arugula coated in overly lemon vinaigrette. Sent it back. Server brought out one dessert menu for the four of us. I asked for another menu and she looked at me like it was the oddest request and silently walked off to get another menu. Manager brought them out. Desserts were both good. Service totally lacking. It took over an hour to get dinner.
Great food and service. Outdoor dining was comfortable and pleasant.
Great variety of food options and all were delicious! We had the salmon, pork loin. Fish tacos, and pasta. They were all wonderful. Also try the Apple Tart for dessert - it was fantastic and shared by all.
Excellent food and service. Nice variety for a relatively small menu. Pork tenderloin and the stuffed vegetable tamale were delicious!
Good meal, spot outdoors is nice!
The food was delicious and very well prepared. Wait staff were excellent. Table conversation was easy - no problem with noise. My only issue was the long length of time for our entrees to reach the table. When they arrived they were all delicious, no problem there, but we had arrived hungry and no appetizers were ordered.
I will recommend Venable and will certainly return. This was my first restaurant dining experience, due to Covid, since January 2020. It was lovely!
Venable has done a great job setting up outdoor eating space. Tables are far enough part to allow you to have a private conversation. The staff were attentive and had a good command of the menu. The kitchen does a good job in giving you what you ordered.
Excellent experience across the board but especially impressed with the food, just outstanding!
Waiter was nice and responsive but not knowledgeable about ingredients
For things on the menu.
Wait staff should be required to know the menu inside and out.
Excellent food! Good service will be back for more.
Our dining experience at Venable on a busy Saturday evening was five star. The staff was attentive, professional and efficient. We were well looked after but not hurried. The service was timed like a dance. Our food was delicious; the menu was quite extensive with vegetarian options. We highly recommend this restaurant.. Make a reservation!
Start to finish, everything was fantastic. The appetizers we ordered were delicious. We got the truffle artichoke dip (my husband ate it with a spoon when the bread ran out. They brought more bread.) and the lettuce wraps yummy. We had pad Thai, udon noodles and the trout entrees. All more flavorful than the norm. Trout was crispy and even the rice was good. Desserts were mousse, sticky toffee pudding and apple tart. Lovely and delicious. Highly recommend Venable!
Everything was wonderful. Have not been to Venables for a while but it lived up to our memories.
Special tagliatelle with lobster really outstanding… lots of lobster. Server (Liz) terrific. A fine evening in every way
Great outdoor dining space in Carrboro. Lots of great, fresh veggies and local produce.
Lovely evening! Great food! Friendly service. We had a sweet time reconnecting after all this time of seclusion.
The pork tenderloin was VERY good. Moist and perfectly seasoned.
I subbed out the couscous for the herbed whipped potatoes and that
took it to a whole different level of delicious. The potatoes were
truly amazing. Great place.
This was our first time here, so we had a little problem finding it, but after calling the restaurant we got directions. We got seated quickly and our waitress was very attentive. I ordered a sweet tea to drink, it wasn't sweet at all, our waitress offered to make it sweeter, when she brought it back it was a tad sweeter, but you could tell it wasn't brewed that way, just an additive to make it sweet. My wife got a salad, it looked very good, piled high with tomatoes and cucumbers. For our entree's she ordered the pasta and I got the fried chicken with mashed potatoes. I was surprised when they set my plate down, I was expecting a breast or thigh, but what I got was a boneless filet. It was cooked perfectly and tasted good, just not what I was expecting. The mashed potatoes came in a little kettle, they also tasted good, a little runny, but good none the less. My wife seemed to like her pasta. The portions were more than either of us could finish.
There was really nothing wrong with our meal except the tea. Maybe explain in the menu that the chicken is a filet and not a whole piece of chicken. This place is nice, very casual and worth visiting if you want to try a non chain place.
Server recommended the specials and they were excellent. Beautiful dinner. Perfect for date night.
Lovely experience as always.
Just a great dinner. The bruschetta special was amazingly good.
Fantastic bar service. Food was superb.
Tasty and plentiful starters and main dishes. Pad Thai particularly good.
Dinner with friends, very nice
We all enjoyed our meals and we had someone in our party who was GF and Vegan and they were very pleased. Our server Levi was on point and gave great recommendations. We will definitely be back soon!
Great place. Food is well cooked but blaaaaand. Mash potatoes are a slam dunk.
Excellent food. Everything was delicious and service great!
I had the NC trout and it was delicious and very nicely seasoned. My daughter had a caesar salad with added steak. She said it was good and the steak was good too. My grandson had the udon noodles and he really loved them. For dessert he had the panacotta with black cherry ice cream. He loved it. The service was good and people were well spaced apart.
Always excellent there!
