Was very excited to have the baked stuffed lobster I have heard so much about. The lobster, though pricey, was very good but the sides left much to be desired. The broccoli was blah...plain and the au gratin potatoes were the same, no seasoning. Service was terrible and we waited 40 minutes between our bread and our dinner. Plus our... More

I recall going to Venus for special occasions (not counting weddings and other group functions) and always enjoying the soup to nuts treatment even though the dining room then had as much ambiance as a cafeteria. Now, the Empire Grille is a nicely appointed dining room but I feel something has been lost. We've been several times in the past... More

We attended a function at Venus De Milo which included entertainment by singer/comedian Laura Roth and lunch selections of chicken or fish. Lunch was very good. I chose fish but friends who chose the chicken were also pleased with their meal. Laura Roth was outstanding. Her imitations of music greats including costumes, mannerisms and songs attributed to the famous entertainers... More

Our friends invited us for dinner to this restaurant. They visited this place a few times before and loved it very much. They would like us to try it. Unfortunately this time it didn’t meet their expectations and was not special for us. It was 4 of us. Dinner started with focaccia and olive oil that was a nice touch.... More

Friday night, seeing great friends after 9 months - not rushed, waitress very attentive & could answer all questions. Diverse eaters. Special needs for medical condition- no problem! Those fried sea scallops were devoured quickly. I was -'What is poached butter lobster?' = lobster sauté. Not really, this is lobster tails, not drowned in butter = better than lobster sauté....

A lady friend and I went to dinner before the theatre and were so pleased. This visit was far above the average meal at the Venus. Our waiter (Zack?) was a love. He catered to us and made our time there absolutely divine. We had N.E. Clam chowder, salads, and the fishermans platter which was so large, we split it.... More
