I can't tell you how fabulous this place was. The restaurant is on the smaller side, but the decor and vibe were wonderful. Our server was very, very nice, although she seemed a little "new", and so just a little slower than usual. But nothing too bad, or that we couldn't live with. I don't think that they have a...

I travel. Mainly in the USA but some global. The Venue serves some of the best sushi we've had. Period. Chef is a master and the fish is fresh. Obviously we had concerns as they don't catch fish in Rancho Mirage...lol. Don't miss the Venue!

We eat sushi at least once a week and I've tried many sushi restaurants in the Cochella Valley. The Venue is without question the best sushi restaurant I've ever eaten at. The salmon is by far superior to any sushi restaurant I've ever been to. The rolls are interesting and different.

I'm not a sushi snob or a sushi know-it-all. That said, I've had quite a bit of it so I'm a big fan. My wife wanted sushi before we left town. I searched and searched TA for the right place and decided on The Venue. All the good reviews are right on. Quality tasting sushi with some very interesting combinations.... More

I went here with a few friends, 2 of which are sushi snobs. They literally eat sushi at minimum once per week from some of the best sushi restaurants in Chicago. I was impressed (maybe too easily) but even they were very impressed with this place. The waitstaff was very attentive and knowledgeable. I asked the waiter to bring me... More

Finally found good sushi in the Palm Desert area! Great creative rolls. A little on the pricey side -- but, worth it. We prefer one of the few outside tables.

Best meal I had in Palm Springs. The sushi chef is a friggin' genius, service was excellent, and although its pricey... its worth it.

Spending New Year Eve in PS, made a reservation at The Venue in Palm Desert. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Arrived for our dinner to be informed they had no table for us, we'd have to sit at the bar facing tv screens playing mute football. Empty tables were clearly available. Some girl talking through her nose REFUSED TO ACCOMMODATE us even though... More

Was deciding between The Venue, for a more modern approach/interpretation or a more authentic, straight forward sushi option for my first dinner on my trip to Palm Desert. Very happy with The Venue. I went with the Omakase/chef's choice and was given around 8 truly unique and incredibly tasty plates. Flavorful and inspired combinations... this is truly a find. The... More
