You can never go wrong dining at The Venue!

You can never go wrong with The Venue. I had a trio of seafood dishes, and my date had a steak. As always, everything was prepared and plated beautifully. It is a bit on the high end of price range. A dinner for two usually winds up in the $90 range with tip, but still not a bad deal. A... read more

We enjoyed our meal here for our date night. If you want to try something different this is the place, with delicious food and a great atmosphere. The drinks are excellent and they have a great selection of wine. Our meal was fantastic, my only complaint would be with being so busy our waitress had a hard time keeping up... More

This place never disappoints, I just realized I hadn't reviewed Venus and my wife and I go there often. You have 2 options, the bar side or the restaurant both are great and amazing atmosphere. We also order the same thing, wife gets fish and I get a steak. We love the service, atmosphere and the team at Venue. They... More

Service, quality and taste amazing. Thank you !! We loved the new meatball pasta dish - the chef knocked himself out on this one. Grilled shrimp - spinach salmon salad consistently great. Highly recommend.

This was the first Valentine's Day that my wife and I were able to be together in several years since I travel for my job this time of year. So, we decided to celebrate at the Venue in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our dining experience began with my wife choosing a glass of Bricco Riella's Moscato D'asti while I opted for a... More

We are more and more pleased when we eat a meal at Venue. I believe that "new" management took over some time ago, not sure of the circumstances, but whatever happened is for the good! Their menu is interesting and varied for both lunch and dinner. I had the chicken salad sandwich and shaved asparagus salad for lunch, with a... More

Probably one of the finer restaurants in Lincoln. The food was well prepared and plated beautifully. The atmosphere was very pleasant. The bar service was a bit slow, considering we went late on a Monday evening, during non-peak times. Prices are a bit on the upper end, for Lincoln, but not exhorborant. About $90 for dinner for two with appetizer... More

This hip but welcoming spot hosted a very special surprise birthday party for a dozen family members of all ages with warmth, efficiency and style. As Big City Foodies our expectations were apologetically low, but the Venue taught us the heartland can yet deliver on superb sevice of fine food at a ridiculously reasonable price. The personal attention given this... More

We have attended many of their special wine and culinary dinners and they are wonderful. Equal to any we have had in New York, San Francisco or in Europe. A true delight in Lincoln Ne. Does not get much better.

You can count on this restaurant for upscale food and atmosphere. After eating there over a dozen times, I once wasn't pleased with my dish and, out of character and respect for the chef, I suggested they stop serving that dish that night. They were apologetic and took it off the bill. Classy.
