Relaxing, no rush, good food

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... read 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

We ate here on a Sunday around lunchtime. It was not crowded. Outdoor seating is nice although we sat inside. TV's are strategically placed to watch sports but I would not call this a sports bar at all. Atmosphere is very nice. The food was excellent but the service was slow. Staff was very nice and knowledgable about the menu.... More

The bartender is a peach. The food is fun and innovative. There is often interesting wine tasting, art classes and other fun activities you may choose to participate in. I highly recommend checking their online calendar and have an adventure in dining.

It was nice to eat good food for breakfast with a toddler in a city & area mainly focused on adults.
