Great place to go for a birthday dinner. Great with the covid stuff as well!
Our waiter Dillon was excellent. Great food, great evening.
Great food. Great unique cocktails. Food was delicious as always. Wait staff was attentive without being pestering. Very patient as this was a first date that stretched over two hours. Definitely a great choice to meet a new friend.
One of the best restaurants in Lincoln. Even my LA upper class relatives were impressed by it when they visited.
Lovely restaurant, food was amazing. We will definitely stop there the next time we are in Lincoln
Our waiter made a lot of mistakes. The food is tremendously overpriced. My shrimp scampi pasta have five shrimp. It also had hardly any flavor. The salad was fantastic. My mixed drink was spilled all the way to the table and it was completely sticky. Everything I touched was sticky after that. I didn’t like having to order each thing separately. The ambience was very nice.
Understand the mixed messaging with COVID, but the dining room looked 'normal', way too crowded for my wife at this time. The house wine, while pricey by the glass, was excellent. Service was outstanding. We have been increasingly disappointed, in our opinion, with the food and finally decided that dining here was not an option anymore, save Happy Hour in the bar. The flatbread pizzas are good and we used to love 'Three by The Sea', but not now.
The restaurant food, service, cleanliness, etc. were excellent. The only aspect that jaded our experience was the lack of care other patrons seemed to give toward their outward appearances. Those who chose to dine in wearing sweats and generally looking like they rolled out of bed to feed themselves at a trough cheapened the experience. It left us wondering where self respect has gone and whether there is such a thing as a classy dining experience these days.
Food and drinks were delicious and service was great. Only complaint had to do with other rude patrons but that’s no fault of the restaurant!
Food was good, but barely warm. Disappointing compared to past experiences here. This is normally our favorite food in Lincoln.
We’ve eaten here multiple times. Food is always excellent.
I’ve never water anything here I wasn’t happy with!
We have been going there for 10 plus years and have enjoyed every trip we have had there. The wait staff is wonderful. Needless to say we love the place
Perfect place !!!
Our server was wonderful, food was great however it took a very long to to receive drinks and food. The last couple of times it has seemed to take a longer than normal time to get food. No one had anything that would take that long-pasta, pizza, salad, and fried chicken. Other then that...we enjoyed our meal!
Incredible anniversary dinner! We had an early reservation at 5 PM and it was quiet when we began, but by 7 PM it had really filled up. Everything we had was full of flavor and delicious. We started off with some portabella mushroom fries—was amazing with the garlic and chipotle aiolis. I had the honey garlic salmon—which flakes away beautifully—and my husband had the blackened shrimp pizza—also delicious. Great service, amazing food.
It was our pleasure to serve you on your special day. Thank you for choosing Venue, and we appreciate the 5-Star Review.
It's good to have Lincoln's premier restaurant back in action. Some inconsistencies but nothing that can not be conquered.
The atmosphere is inviting and quiet. Service was excellent. The food was exceptional, the presentation inviting and exactly as the menu depicted. Wonderful evening.
Excellent, as always.
Food starts out great with appetizers but becomes more disappointing the further you go. Took a long time for the food to come out as well. Value has suffered. Service was very good at least.
Been here a few times and decided to try something new off the menu. Yet again, they amazed me with the variety of flavors and textures in the dish. Will definitely be ordering again!
Thank you for your review, Jessica. We appreciate the feedback.
The Surf and Turf was outstanding, along with their famous crab bisque. The restaurant was unusually quiet.
Thank you for your 5-Star Review!
Fabulous, as always!! My favorite restaurant in Lincoln.
Our dinner was fantastic! We both ordered steaks and they had the best flavor one could ask for.
Our service was very delightful and informative!!

Lincoln's premier dining establishment observing strict adherence to health directives. Feel safe eating out there.
The food was amazing!
We were sat immediately. ordered a drinks and an appetizer, they arrived in a timely fashion. Ordered dinner soon after & our dinner was delicious
My wife’s steak was fatty but they made right. Otherwise it was a wonderful experience and the typical Venue dining experience we’ve come to expect!
The wait staff at the Venue is very cheerful, provide great service are great at describing entries on the menu. Greatest staff in Lincoln.
We ended up staying at the bar to have our dinner because Ariel was so wonderful. Cheerful, knowledgable and attentive- she made my first outing out since having a baby an absolute pleasure.
46th Wedding Anniversary. The lady that took care of us was very professional and personable! She brought us each a lovely glass of champagne for our Anniversary. She was also very competent. A very good experience. Thank you.
Thank you for the 5 Star review. We appreciate the feedback, and your support. Cheers to many more anniversaries!
We went for our anniversary and the food was phenomenal and they even gave us a complementary glass of champagne to celebrate with!
Always excellent service in a welcoming atmosphere with innovative specials.
From the drinks and appetizers to the meals with wine everything was outstanding. Each of us got something different and it was perfectly prepared. A great dining experience. We look forward to coming again.
