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!
Extremely sad...food bad, interior of restaurant smelled horrible.
Been going there for years...very very very dissatisfied.
Staff out of it.
Great meal and excellent service. I love the outdoor tables especially.
Good menu. Good service.
Wonderful to be back inside! Dinner (steak and mussels) was delicious.
Our service was very good. We had reservations for outside but with rain on the horizon, we chose to sit inside. We were sat at a lone table in an alcove, far from the few other diners who also chose to sit inside. Love that they served our bottle of chardonnay with a chilling bucket.
The empanada dish was delicious, however, our other dishes (two couples) were not so successful. We shared an eggplant bruschetta, which was disappointing at best. I did not care for the flavor and it looked horribly unappetizing. The fish tacos were bland and were more like wraps than tacos. Also very disappointing.
Enjoyed a very tasty dinner outside. Chairs were uncomfortable after sitting through dinner, cushions would certainly help.
Awful, overpriced food and bizarre menu but great service.
The parking lot was not great ambiance. I got Venable chicken, which is a favorite, but this time there was no thought to dressing the greens. Parm and lemon sparse, evo nonexistent. I was disappointed. First course, was great.
Staff is always excellent and helpful. The adapted outdoor seating is very pleasant. Food choices are creative and pleasing. Sitting outside on a Spring evening with good food, great service, nice beverage selections, and a sense of history from the repurposed building --well, I just need this in my life!!
Outdoors in parking area so ambience lacking.
While the presentation was beautiful, I found the food to lack flavor. I also found the menu to be a bit limiting. Quality and portions were great.
