Felt the food was adequate, tasty but was not a good value. Very over priced and the service was not particularly good. Would not return to this restaurant.

I eat there all the time for lunch. My main concern is that they don't offer any healthy chicken menu items in the evening other than salads. Excellent staff, ambiance, etc, however, I can have 5-6 options if I go to say, Lazlo's for dinner. Venue has ONE chicken item and it's breaded & deep fried. I'm not a fish lover & am allergic to shellfish...love beef but only so much a week. I eat delicious salads every time I go for lunch. However, I would love to go there for dinner and have some chicken options. You're doing a great job....just wish I could go more in the evening and enjoy a healthy chicken option.

Celebrated our anniversary there with friends. Delicious food and a wonderful selection of wine! Our server's wine knowledge was a little lacking, but we did select and enjoy two bottles! Venue rarely disappoints if you're looking for an upscale place to enjoy lunch and dinner.

The acoustics are terrible. It sounds like everyone is yelling. No ambiance for intimate conversation. Reluctant to go back for that reason. Install acoustical panels to dampen the din.

Excellent service and fabulous meal. All 4 of us got the filet Mignon, prepared perfectly. Warm yummy bread and butters complimentary. We also all enjoyed sautéed mushrooms as a side as well as the side salad which only adds $1 to your meal. The side salad is awesome and prepared with a surrounding cucumber slice with egg and Parmesan crisps. Very pretty! Nightly special for wine was delicious that evening also.

I made reservations online, in advance, and requested a booth. Upon arrival, there was no reference to this request. The wait was approximately 15 minutes. The atmosphere was non-existent. Very casual...too casual. There was no click. No pop. It was cold, and a bit sterile. The booth wasn't exactly comfortable. Portions were surprisingly small. Prices were not. I can cook better....so, it is doubtful that a return visit is on the horizon. Disappointing. I had really hoped for more. Expectations were high, considering several recommendations. I had the scallop & shrimp linguine. Too spicy, and it hurt my eyes....looking for the scallops & shrimp. The wedge salad is much better at Granite City. The champagne was excellent. But, then again....the Venue didn't create it. They only charged way too much for it. These are not judgments....only observations.

From the host who seated us, to our server, Chloe, the staff were terrific. The meal was excellent. Our dessert was delicious. We were planning on a lite supper so we shared a salad and a pizza, but if we’re back in town we’ll try one of their steaks - this is what they are known for.

Overall everything was well done. Only area for improvement was on the cook of the steaks. Ordered two dry aged ribeyes, not cheap, mid rare and both came medium, while tasty it was kind of a bummer. All in all I’d go back.

My wife and I dined at the Venue on New Years Eve. The special NYE menu was well thought out and contained a wide variety of choices. We are frequent diners at the Venue and feel that the service and the food are always first class. The crowd was heavy as would be expected on NYE, but the staff was prepared and accommodating. As I looked around the restaurant it appeared that everyone was enjoying their time and experience. I ordered the Sea Bass and it was prepared perfectly. In my mind, fish overcooked is a sin Mine was perfect! My wife ordered a Crab Topped Beef Filet and it was served at the exact level of doneness that she ordered and as tender as any she had ever eaten. Both were served with sides which were tasty and unique. We ordered a really nice bottle of wine and finished our meal with a very yummy slab of Chocolate/Salted Caramel Cake. I can't thank the Venue for this experience enough. It was a special evening for us and we left there very well treated and served.

Everything was just ok. I expected more for the price. The steak, one of my drinks, bread, bread pudding and asparagus were all great. I didn’t Care for the lobster Rangoon, spinach & artichoke dip (horrible), white cheddar Mac n cheese. Also in one of my drinks it wasn’t mixed at all and they put chipped ice in it so I couldn’t take a drink without getting bits of ice in it. I asked for a quiet spot on our reservation and we got put right in the boxing ring area between 3 large groups who our server was distracted by. I would have had 3 drinks instead of 2 but he took quite a while to get back to us. This date was planned for a couple weeks and it was just a let down

We started out with the Lobster Rangoon, Ahi Tuna, Brussel Sprouts, and the Calamari. They were all fantastic, I especially liked the Rangoon. The bread with the different butters was also very good.

Then three of us had the Caesar salad, it had a bit too much dressing for all of our liking honestly, but was still very good.

Everyone enjoyed their entrees. One of us had the A5 Waygu, a few had seafood, and I had the Cowboy Ribeye.

The peppermint cheesecake was phenomenal as well!

We will be back!
