My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch on a Thursday. We were pleasantly surprised to find out they not only had gluten free items, but have received a special certification for preparing gluten free food. We had the gluten free fried calamari which was incredibly good. We had a lunch trio: salad, crab bisque soup and 1/2... More

Decided to try a nice restaurant for our anniversary and the Venue was somewhere we had never been. It has a great reputation in town and the food was excellent! Don't go expecting oversized portions, but for the $ the quality was amazing.

The ambiance is nice; it's a modern look. Otherwise very mediocre. We had calamari that was mostly breading for an appetizer, along with some cheese and pepper "poppers". My wife had the strawberry salmon, which had a sauce that just did not fit. I had their "classic" pizza which was average for such an establishment. It was greasy. My dad... More

Had a business lunch. Reasonable prices. Has a great interior. About $10 per meal with drink for our lunch. Quiche was amazing. Best I've had at a restaurant. My side was "fingerling potatoes". Very good! My friend recommends to the chicken salad sandwich with sweet potatoes fries. The ice tea is one of the best regular non-sweet brewed that I've... More

We recently went here for a night out. We are from out of town and wanted to go to a nicer steakhouse. For what it's worth this place really seemed to have it all. APP: Seared Ahi Tuna- nicely seared, great flavor, and surprisingly enjoyed the sweet chili sauce. SALADS: Cesar salad, good flavor - the dressing had a nice... More

Our experience was such a disappointment. We were VERY excited about trying Venue and dined here on a Wednesday night, so I can't even attribute the "gaffes" to a busy Friday or Saturday night "rush hour" crush. We asked if we could have a quiet booth. We were given a perfect booth in the back, away from the busy front... More
