I live 15 miles from this place and went there for the 1st time. It was fabulous. Food, atmosphere, and service was great! Don't know why it took me so long to visit. I will be back soon.

First time visiting the Venue in Lincoln. I thought it was very good overall. If there was any down side it would be the service just a bit slow and somewhat unresponsive.

They moved our reservations up without any qualms. We were seated and greeted right away. Ordered a wonderful appetizer, meal and went for the desert. Can't wait to come back.Wonderful... More

Always solid, well prepared food, good wine list and good service. Fresh creative food. Their wine dinners are especially great values, where the chef gets to put on great usually tasty courses.

My husband and I have dined four or five times at the Venue. We love the food and the service is good. The menu has a great variety. But it is rather noisy for such a classy place. It is hard to hear the waiters or each other...makes it hard to enjoy everything.
