We found The Venue online and headed over for dinner with our sushi-loving kids. The website we used had the wrong hours of operation listed and we arrived right before they were closing. Fortunately they decided to seat us and it was well worth it. Everything was delicious and looked beautiful - think tuna tartare served in a martini glass.... More

We decided to try out this restaurant in Palm Desert based on other reviews. They did not disappoint. We tried the Omakase and loved each course that came out. By the end, we were definitely full, but still managed to find room for the green tea ice cream. The restaurant is located on the chic El Paseo, so it's a... More

To be candid, I did not expect a good Sushi restaurant in Palm Desert. This place was great. Very very good sushi - regardless of location. The place was smaller than anticipated but the rolls were fantastic. They do need a better selection of drinks.

I haven't been to any other sushi restaurants in the Coachella Valley other than The Venue. However I have been to high-end sushi restaurants in cities all over the west and east coasts. The venue provides fresh Sushi which is well-prepared. Their specialty sushi rolls looked interesting but not particularly imaginative. I ordered a sashimi sampler and was pleased with... More

We came in with no reservation so they told us we had an hour until we had to go so they were trying to accommodate us. We quickly ordered and ate,,, I cannot tell you that I was "blown away" in any regard. Everything was mediocre and nothing special. The rice was bland, the rolls just adequate. The hot sake... More

We sat at the sushi bar and had wonderful sushi. The service was fantastic. The decor is modern, black/white/silver. Very cool. Sushi was super fresh, creative, delicious. Would highly recommend the tuna and yellowtail carpaccio as well as the spicy tuna roll and the experimental roll! We will definitely be back!

We loved this place. The fish was great. We particularly enjoyed that the sushi was not always typical. The restaurant has variations of types of sushi. We ordered the fixed menu at $49 per person. They were nice to accommodate certain food restrictions we had. We liked every dish. The portions were nice. We didn’t leave hungry. The owner was... More
