Went with relatives because Mom wanted "Nebraska steak". Lovely restaurant, great reception, awesome service. Got a reservation on short notice / Friday night; had a warm welcome from hostesses & waitress Chelsea. Salads were great: caesar, wedge, especially loved the unique presentation of the house salad with the cucumber wrap, & orange dressing (can't remember name, not French). Bread was... More

The service on the visit was perfect. We returned a couple nights ago and brought a couple friends and family with... More

Had a nice lunch at the Venue for under $10. I had a "half" salad which was delicious (but already made previously as it got to the table in less than 10 minutes.) We had good service and was seated promptly without a reservation. I had to ask for bread which is complimentary, but they do not put it on... More

We visit The Venue more than a couple times a month for a night away from the business. I can't say enough about the staff in the lounge! I feel like we dine with family every time. As for the kitchen, the chief is very knowledgeable in his food prep, and his staff is 2nd to none! The atmosphere is... More

Venue was our favorite restaurant for years. Great food and service. The menu changed over time but the food was great. That all changed on New Year's Eve 2013. We talked another couple into dining there instead of their "go-to" favorite for our New Year's Eve dinner and made reservations. What a mistake! We arrived to discover a truncated "special"... More

Venue in Lincoln is a nice restaurant for a long "girls" lunch. The server was delightful, friendly and helpful. We arrive about 12:30PM and the restaurant was noisy. By 1PM, it was quiet and allowed for the "girls" to talk.

Elegant environment for Lincoln, reasonable prices, and delicious lunch offerings make this a perfect place for a business lunch or a special get-together with friends. One of the many things I appreciate about this restaurant is the excellent service and the fact that the restaurant ambience isn't too loud. It's actually possible to enjoy a conversation when dining at the... More

Great food and atmosphere. Wonderful facilities for a business meal with excellent facilities (projector, conference phone) and excellent service. My companions had a range of appetizers and cuts of quality beef. I had the delmonico and wished it had been augmented by available sauce/seasoning combos which I did not select. I did request the bacon scallop which was cooked perfectly.... More
