Terrible Service

Three of us go for dinner and have a reservation. My daughter and son-in-law both ordered the butternut squash soup and she ordered a gnocchi appetizer and a latte. I ordered a fettucini dish. Both soups arrive and they are luke warm. They're taken back and reheated. My pasta dish arrives with my daughter's appetizer. The latte never comes until I ask for it during the middle of the meal. Our waitress seems to... view more

Cute! Good food.

In reading some of the negative reviews of Venus, I can understand how bad service can taint an experience. But, I must say I haven't had any bad experiences at Venus. Every time I've gone, I've gotten great service and the food has been beyond terrific. It's a really cute place for a date! I would hate to go there when it's busy, though...(which means I don't go on the weekends.)

Brunch is yummy! Lemon ricotta pancakes are divine.

I would go back for the lemon ricotta pancakes any time. There's quite a wait on weekends, but the brunches are worth it. Been for dinner and I have to say I prefer Venus for brunch.

My All-Time Favorite Brunch

This place is fantastic. I start salivating just thinking about the food. Not only do they have the best french toast I have ever tasted (made with Challah bread and occasionally stuffed with ricotta), but everything I have ever tasted has been great. Their food is different, somewhat healthy (are belgian chocolate pancakes diet food?), and they always have great specials that change every week(around the holidays... view more

Amazing execution

Amy Murray appears cool and hip, and her food shows it. I'm not particularly into goat cheese but I ate it up with the rest of the Heirloom Apple Salad. At first glance, the ingredient combos seemed intimidating on the menu, but the appearance and the integration of the flavors were very welcoming... The food is great and it was so elegant and well executed, that I couldn't help thinking ""I can't do this at home.... view more

very inspiring

Wonderful ambiance in addition to exquisite organic cuisine. Service has always been fabulous, the wait staff is personable and fun. It is definitely worth the wait if there is a line.

User review by kj8108

Large portions, friendly staff, and delicioius organic cuisine. Every time I walk in the door I am greeted by large smiles, friendly people, beautiful unique flower arrangements, local artwork, and interesting new items on the menu and wine list. Dinner prices range from $16-18, but the portions are very generous and worth the price.

Avoid breakfast

Noisy, crowded, and the food is uninspiring. Why did this get such a good review?!? I went a few more times, no change. I had to go get my own coffee (cold). If management is so good why do they maintain such an incompetent staff. Why they ever got such a good reputation, must long be in the past. In a word - avoid.

Great place for a friend and you to meet, have a nice relaxed breakfast or bite to eat, and get on with your day. Nice environment, and good service.

Horrible service

Food was unmemorable, but the service was, in a bad way. The waiter made us wait atleast 15 minutes before he bothered to take our orders because he was busy chatting behind the bar with coworkers. When we told he we were in a hurry (we had after dinner plans and they were lagging), he became really sarcastic and condescending - ""here is your appetizer... IN A RUSH"". Here are your entrees.. IN A HURRY"". Then he pu... view more
