We went for sushi to the Venue sushi bar. They have a really nice menu and a great waiter. We took my mom who was going for beef teriyaki but they don't serve that so we went into a bit of panic mode. The waiter was fantastic. He showed us a fantastic beef order with a tostado twist and everyone... More

I've lived in the Coachella Valley all of my life, and this really is the best Sushi I have ever tasted. Engin, the owner/chef, is really creative with the flavors he puts together. The Ko-Ko, Lollipop, and Shrimp tempura are so good. The staff is friendly and Sergio is super helpful. This is a must if you are in Palm... More

I came here for my 35thbday. Upon arrival I would of never pegged this place for a sushi restaurant. We sat at the bar and checked out the menus. I asked the guy behind the bar about some items and he told me he had no idea. Totally unprepared. Then he gives me big wine glasses for my bottle of... More

My wife and I have eaten here before and we like the Venue so much that we schedule our road trips to California around dining here. The omokase courses were fantastic. Great balance of flavors and textures combined with spot on service mad our evening perfect.

This place was excellent. It started with us having a party of 10 and wanting to sit outside and enjoy the evening. Our service was excellent and I am not sure what all we had, but it was very good! And the service was exceptional. The little dessert ice creams are really awesome though!

We ate here after reading about the chef in the Desert Sun and checking the reviews on Tripadvisor. First the restaurant itself. We ate inside as it was very warm outside. The restaurant is very small and we had difficulty reaching our table against the wall because of the table in front being full of people and the sushi bar... More

Picked this place based on reviews. I wanted to treat my husband to something special for his birthday. It was a perfect little spot right on El Paseo. Small, trendy, with an upscale vibe. The servers were on it, and we had the good fortune to sit next to an off duty host. Now, when employees come in on their... More
