The crab bisque was to die for. I wanted to kick out my cup. The Berkshire pork chop was done perfectly moist and seasoned wonderfully. My peach Manhattan was one if the best I have ever had.
Excellent as always! The ambience, food quality, and service is always exceptional. This is one of the top three restaurants in Lincoln, in my opinion.
Wonderful, delicious food! Great service by Cody, our waiter and cook Tristan! Lobster ragions, recommended, were delicious! Wine selection was perfect! Special attention was given for my daughter’s birthday! Wonderful surprise!
A wonderful dinner with excellent service
Always a great experience great options for drinks, servers always friendly and helpful. The ambience is relaxing, The food is great and in a timely fashion .
Always a pleasant dining experience. Noise level (a big deal with me) is sufficiently low to carry on a conversation but not so low as to only hear the clinking of silverware. Wait staff was friendly, engaged and helpful but not overly aggressive or annoying. Food was well prepared and well presented. Management was quick to acknowledge an error (before I noticed it) and make appropriate compensation. This establishment has an excellent reputation and certainly lived up to it during this most recent visit.
The Venue is a fabulous restaurant with the best food in town and service to match. It's a little more expensive than most restaurants, but the food and experience are well worth it.
It was great, as usual!
the food was excellent, the service was 110%, it was all over super!
My first time at Venue was exceptional! This time, on Valentine's Day, my boyfriend and I both were not near as impressed as we were the first time. Our server was the main issue, she did not provide good service. To us, our food wasn't worth as much money as it was priced for. My scallops were not cooked correctly and the filet mignon was definitely not near as nice as it should've been. The food was overall good, but not what I would expect from such an upscale restaurant where we paid $30 for our meal plates.
Always great food, wine and service. Friendly staff, exceptionally trained to accommodate dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy & more) just let your server know your needs.
I had looked forward to trying this restaurant. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. We were seated promptly but it all went downhill from there. Our server was slow to greet us and everything seemed to take place in slow motion. It took awhile to get the one cocktail we ordered, additional time for the bottle of wine and about twenty to 30 minutes to get a wedge salad. Entrees didn't take quite that long but were sadly subpar. My husband had the fried chicken upon recommendation from our waitress. While the chicken was tasty , the gravy had obviously been held on a steamtable or reheated. My seafood trio failed to deliver also. The "garlic shrimp" lacked any flavor and the scallops were extremely salty. The salmon was actually quite tasty and was the saving grace of the dish. The WORST entree was the pork bucatini . After a couple bites my daughter asked my opinion as she said there was something not right and wanted to see what I thought. I tasted a bite of the pork first which was fine but then made the mistake of trying the pasta. It was so salty that it was inedible. By the time the waitress came back, we had finished what we were going to eat. She seemed unsure of how to handle the inedible food. She offered to get a replacement meal but to be honest we just wanted to leave. The manager came by and apologized and removed that entree from the bill. The restaurant is gorgeous but the staff needs training and they need some new recipes. Very disappointing and we will not return.
It is always consistent with good food and nice place to dine, very seldom disappointed.
While we enjoyed what we did order our dining experience was noisy. We asked about the deserts but declined because we did not like the coffee offering. No gourmet coffee is disappoint at a place like this.
Excellent food and service! Xxxx xxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxx
Had a great time at the Venue. We were seated right away. Our waitress let us know the kitchen was behind and there would be a longer wait. We were fine with it. We ended up waiting an hour and half. I did not realize this due to having great company some delicious bread and a beautiful environment. The manager cane and spoke with us. He ended up comping the meal which we did not expect. When we got the good it was delicious and definitely worth the wait. We will be using the venue for our upcoming wedding.
We were surprised how busy they were for a middle-of-the-week in January reservation. The noise level was slightly above their average, but certainly not objectionable. Tables are widely spaced enough so that everyone is comfortable at conversational speech levels. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.
Our server was fantastic. Very attentive without being sappy and disingenuous. She did some nice little extras which were nice surprises and reflected well on the restaurant.
Very nice restaurant. The tables are spaced out great, do not feel crammed in.
I've loved everything I've ordered from The Venue. On this occasion, it seemed like the food took quite a while, but it was worth the wait. My water glass could have been filled a few more times, but overall it was a great experience and the food was fantastic as usual.
