Was expensive for the amount and quality. Drunken noodles had soooo much salt it was inedible. Chicken Alfredo was greasy and barely any chicken.

They were very busy (on a Thursday evening), but the staff were hustling and service was quite good. Noise levels seemed better than (not as loud as) previous visits, making for an enjoyable evening.

Visited for the first time with my daughter for the fact the restaurant has good reviews. Not sure if it was an off night, even though we arrived before the dinner rush. We had drinks, appetizers and split a salad. The calamari appetizer was small pieces that were flavorless, overcooked and chewy. The crab rangoon was good, but the sweet Thai Chile sauce is straight from the jar and nothing special. The mushroom soup was luke warm and not much flavor. Steak Caesar was ok, the dressing was unremarkable. My dessert, the peach bourbon cheesecake was frozen solid. I scraped away two bites and took the rest home to thaw out and try again. I'm not sure how the kitchen staff could not tell that they were cutting into and plating a frozen piece of cheesecake. Flavor was decent once thawed but not a dessert I would go back for. My daughter had the Devil's food cake which was very good, moist and flavorful. Lastly the drinks. A drink can be destroyed if the proper ratio is not used leaving the overbearing alcohol taste and nothing else can be tasted especially when it's a craft cocktail. The Bourbon OF was pretty much that. Straight bourbon that completely overtook the drink. I like a good drink but this was way to strong and really left nothing to be desired. Overall, the food was mediocre for what we ordered. Again, not sure if it was an off night or not but management may want to be more attentive to what is coming out of the window.

We were there with friends for a 52nd wedding anniversary. The food & service were excellent. The only problem we have had with Venue is that it sometimes takes an extremely long time to get the bottle of wine we ordered.

I took my wife to The Venue for our anniversary. They gave us special treatment and made us feel important during the meal.
The food was of course excellent. My wife ordered a small 4oz steak. I was worried that she would end up with a 1/4 inch thick steak. Instead it was normal thickness just cut small. I think this is the first time I have seen a mini steak that was not over cooked. It was perfect.
Highly recommend The Venue for your special occasion.

We were celebrating a birthday and felt a bit rushed. We were in and out in little over an hour. Our order included cocktails and an appetizer. It wasn’t a business lunch! It was Saturday night and we were hoping for a more leisurely experience.

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner of filet mignon and scallops for our anniversary. The steak was cook perfectly (medium) and seasoned well. Wife's scallops were seared just right and cut like butter. We shared the banana split skillet for dessert and were pleased with it's presentation and flavor. We've been to the Venue several times and each time their service and food is consistent and delicious. It's definitely a place we'll continue to go to for special occasions.

Very nice place, service was very nice. Atmosphere was very pleasent. Food was good and served nicely. Felt the $140 for 3 people (tip included) was expensive for what we got. You are paying as much for the atmosphere as you are for the food. I'm not a fan of this style, but The Venue is an excellent restaurant.

My boyfriend and I decided to go to the venue last night because we haven’t been before. The appetizer (crab cakes) were great and my food was mostly good. I enjoyed my steak and asparagus but did not enjoy the mac and cheese. My boyfriend was convinced by our waitress to get the cowboy steak that wasn’t even on the menu. We both hated how it tasted and it was over cooked as well. He ended up taking a few bites and then shared my food. The waitress didn’t seem to care and seemed unbothered by us. Overall we hoped for more but will probably try again and just avoid the cowboy steak at all costs considering the price and taste.

Venue has a great menu that serves a variety of interests. Good cocktails and delicious housemade focaccia were a treat. I enjoyed the Three if by Sea entree and highly recommend. Service was outstanding and servers worked very hard to please customers. Nice atmosphere as well and even though we sat right next to the kitchen, it was not noisy.
