The fish that they have here is great quality and tasted very fresh. The specialty rolls are amazing , make sure you try The Experiment roll it!

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

We had the Venue roll, RBI nigiri, tuna and salmon sashimi, cucumber salad, spicy tuna tartar. Everything was fresh, delicious and nicely presented. Lucky did a great job of serving. My only negative comments - the nigiri was served without wasabi or ginger; when it came, the wasabi was smeared on the side of the plate (not appetizing at all);... More

I have eaten sushi in many different places, but my meal at The Venue Sushi Bar was the best I have ever eaten. I was feeling adventurous and ordered the Omakase (in the chef's hands) and I a never regretted it for one bite. This option gives you an opportunity to sample many different things on the menu. Every course... More

The food is really very good and the portions are generous. We each had a pail of delicious miso soup. The sashimi was exquisite. Tuna tataki got 4 thumbs up as did the seaweed salad, and the California Roll. But everyone's fave was the signature Venue Roll. No need for soy sauce on this, it comes with it's own yummy... More
