If you are a sushi affection ado then this is a must visit on El Paseo. They have all of the normal maki, nigiri and sashimi offerings, all made with exceptionally fresh fish, however, it is with their specialty rolls that this restaurant reaches new heights. With imagination and a flare for the combining ingredients they have a fabulous offering... More

We had dinner here and tried three maki rolls and two specialty rolls, split between two of us. The maki rolls were good but the specialty rolls (spider and ko-ko) were outstanding. The only issue I have is that the prices are a bit too high, as the specialty rolls cost $16 and $19 and had only 6-8 pieces. Their... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the Palm Desert weather while eating great sushi. Although we live in Sedona Az, we come from DC where you have many great sushi houses! We thought the specialty rolls were really creative, fresh and delicious! Our waiter was also very helpful with suggestions on food and beer ! We had a delightful evening with... More

We came here for the first time because it was highly recommended by friends. I'm not a raw fish eater but all the starters were cooked and a few of the specialty rolls so I was looking forward to trying it. We shared the Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms (very good), Chicken Gyoza (excellent), Sheshito Peppers (very bland - in Japan they... More

This is a place that's tucked behind some shops on El Paseo. It's kind of hard to find, but very worth it. The scene is very hip. The room is done in black and white with banquettes and tables. There is also a sushi bar where you can sit and be served. The sushi is fresh and delicious. The rolls... More

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.
