“Asian fusion perhaps? But definitely tasty!”
Reviewed July 21, 2010

Venti's started out with just rice bowls in a tiny location. They moved across the street, expanded the menu, and added a basement bar which has become very popular for its rotating, local taps.

I love their Moroccan Beef plate, the Thai Peanut Chicken Bowl, and the Sweet Potato Fries.
They also have a daily lunch special for about 4.99.

“Excellent beer, tasty food”
Reviewed July 7, 2010

I regularly go for a rice dish or sometimes a wrap, and they are consistently nicely made with nutritious ingredients. This isn't the usual bar food. The draft beers are generally local or regional micro-brews, and many of them are hard to find elsewhere in the area. Consider going for the live music in downstairs.

“Great eats and brew!”
Reviewed June 16, 2010

We headed straight for the basement which has a trendy bar vibe. Everyone in our group enjoyed their entrees and the beer selection was great. The service was a little slow when we arrived around 6pm (there was only one bartender/server working the entire basement which was packed), but more servers came as the night went on. In general the food and beer was worth the wait.
