OK ... I'm a foodie. A bit of s snob when it comes to dining and we've recently moved here from Washington DC where fine dining is a serious enterprise. It was a very pleasant surprise to walk into this restaurant and experience the fabulous decor, thoughtful design, and warm inviting atmosphere. We were greeted warmly, treated to interesting, innovative... More

I had lunch with two colleagues to handle some business. Even though the restaurant was busy, we were able to hear, chat and get work done. Plus the food was great. I appreciated that we weren't pushed or rushed. Great food, great service and great setting!

OMG, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My husband got a pizza and was raving about it too. I might recommend branching out from pizza at this place bc their... More

We frequently had nice business dinners at The Venue while working in Lincoln over the past 4 months. From dry aged steaks, great cocktails, and superb service, The Venue is not to be missed. Don't let the strip mall and exterior fool you, this place has fantastic decor and a great bar.

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.
