This was our first time at the Venue and we absolutely loved it! The food is amazing! Atmosphere is very relaxed but upscale and it was a wonderful place to discover! We will definitely be back!

Simply, the food is excellent even though the prices may be high for Lincoln. This will always be my go to place for the best food and service. It is fairly loud, so I can't classify this as a romantic place. The interior is very nice but not plush. The waitress was excellent providing good tips on wine and dessert. We both had scallops which were expertly prepared. You will always leave with the feeling of wanting to go back.

The Venue Restaurant in Lincoln Ne is the tops of our fine dining. The food is delicious, expertly prepared and always quality!! I recommend reservations at least on weekends. They also own & operate The Piedmont Bistro
which is a great place for breakfast and all meals!

We had heard so much. Maybe that’s why I’m so dissatisfied and disappointed. My steak was tough. The asparagus was also very thick and tough . The service was... sporadic. The menu was strange.

We won’t go back.

Service was excellent. Food was great. Enjoyed the entire meal. Highly recommend
Excellent selection of steak, fish and fowl. The entire family can enjoy or just a couple.
Scotch and beer selection also good.
