After reading the reviews I decided to choose this restaurant for my only evening in the area. My husband and I are quite familiar with Japanese cuisine and especially sushi. We have eaten in the Tripadvisor's best rated Japanese restaurants in Miami, NYC, Las Vegas, etc. I also lived in Tokyo for a period of time so I think I... More

Great sushi selection for sushi lovers. Price is reasonable. The specialty rolls are very creative. Nice place to stop while walking in El Paseo.

We love the food, it's presentation, service and variety at Venue Sushi. The decor is clean and modern and very cozy. It is our go to sushi restaurant. Never disappointed.

Excellent sushi. This was unexpectedly small restaurant but comfortable and trendy. Chairs had decorative pillow snd blankets. A very nice outdoor area empty on a scorching week with no one choosing to dine versnda style if ANY alternative. Service was excellent. There were no entrees so expect pages of classic sushi and specialty sushi. We had a daily special which... More

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
