I stopped here recently & got seated outside on a lovely day during the Art & Wine Festival. It was busy but the service was great. I have been craving a good hamburger & finally found one! The atmosphere inside also looked very nice so I would like to return in the evening.

I had a Caesar salad with "wild" salmon. We had wanted to sit outside, but the tables were full, after we sat down and got water, one opened up and the hostess was very accommodating. The place was laid back, and the sun was shining. The food was better than I expected at a reasonable price. My wife had a... More

We attended the Indian festival and looked for a handy restaurant. Venues was recommended for good drinks so we decided to try it for dinner. Wine was excellent. We ordered seafood, both orders came with risotto. Food was good but not great. We got the bill and was well over $100 ( including the wine). If you eat here be... More

Our neighbors convinced us to return and give Venues another chance since they thought the food had improved. We decided to give it a try for lunch. The food has not improved, I ordered a sandwich which was average at best, it came with fries that were not only cold they were what you would expect from a low end... More

Breakfast was pretty good, but ruined by a waitress that was very bizzare to say the least. Would consider returning but don't want to be served by this person, which means we probably won't be back

Lunch or brunch, Sunday selections are quite good. Colleagues and the hash and liked it. I had the BBQ sliders and onion rings ,both were very good and good portions. Another colleague had the salmon open sandwich and liked it. We had a rookie server who needs to learn a lot about food service but in the end we all... More
