Venue Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely delicious meal all around, but definitely the best steaks we have had in a long while. My husband doesn't usually bother to review anything, and he said this is a place he would willingly review and give 5 stars to...and I don't think he has ever said that. Service was good, and prompt, made sure we had everything we needed. Prices were reasonable. I can't emphasize enough though, how delicious the steaks were. Definitely would recommend.
I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary because I was told they make it a special event for you and do a complimentary champagne toast. Our server was rude about the fact we were a homosexual couple celebrating our anniversary, wasn’t attentive, and didn’t offer the champagne. Upon speaking with the manager she told me the champagne toast is something they do for all couples on their anniversary, so our waitress blatantly chose not to offer the surprise. The manager was very understanding and she was the best part of the entire experience. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
Loved our visit here !! Great food and atmosphere!!! Waitress very good!! But when reservation chamged from 5 to 6 host and hostess insisted we have a booth instead of a table and were very arrogant and did not want to listen to anything else as we walked by open tables !!!! When questioned dimissed my concerns and were very rude !!!!!! We were there Nov 9 at 6 pm only reason I wouldnt go back
Evening out with friends. Service was good, food also. Steaks are pricey. We sat in a booth toward the far back as this is quieter and more conducive to conversation, particularly if anyone in the party has a hearing disability. They honor reservations and one can request this area. The Happy Hour is very popular and very well patronized. Come early if you want a seat.
We had friends in town for the football game. I made reservations and was very pleased to see our table was ready when we got there at least 5 minutes early. I told our friends how good your food is and it didn't disappoint. Everyone ordered something different and everyone's dinner was delicious! Our server did a great job! It was a delightful evening!
We were seated promptly and in a friendly manner. Our server was welcoming and helpful. The food was very tasty. My bucatini was undercooked but other than that, everything was lovely. I always enjoy Venue and will return. Thank you for making this a memorable evening.
As usual, The Venue was a nice enjoyable place to meet and share time with friends. Unfortunately, a few of the sandwiches on the menu are a handful to eat. Much better to be open faced and eaten with utensils, not as a sandwich was made to be eaten. Other's food was wonderful, salad's always great, almost anything without a sauce, can be eaten without the mess. Thanks for the quiet dinning, and friendly service!
Venue was over the top with service and food quality! We were pampered with a special anniversary table set and prepared just for us and offered a complimentary glass of champagne. The food was deliciously prepared and attractively presented on the plate. Flavors and textures were fabulous! I highly recommend Venue if you are celebrating something special...a birthday, anniversary, or a date night. Let the restaurant know ahead of time so they can be prepared to offer you the royal treatment.
Had a great experience at the Venue!! Our waitress was incredibly helpful and very good at explaining the menu and providing us with satisfying answers to every question. But of course, the FOOD was the best part! I was blown away by my salmon spinach salad--so simple, so pretty, SO delicious.
I would recommend the Venue to anyone and everyone.
This was my first visit and was recommended by a friend. I made a reservation online, we showed up five minutes early, and were seated right away.
Our server Desiree did an excellent job.
There were three in our group and everyone said their meal was excellent. One had the salmon, one had the 14 oz ribeye, and I had the 10 oz ribeye that was on the special menu. Everyone really enjoyed the meal and said their meal was excellent. No one had any cocktails or wine so I cannot comment on their wine list.
I would highly recommend Venue.
