Venus (Berkeley) for dinner?

Has anyone had dinner at Venus recently? What was your food like? Thanks for the feedback (I saw several reviews of Venus, but all referred to brunch, as opposed to dinner).

    I'm afraid this isn't entirely responsive to your query, as I haven't been there super recently, but I have had several very nice dinners at Venus in the past couple of years. In my experience, they cook fish and seafood very well, and their vegetables are locally sourced, seasonal, and handled nicely. I haven't been as impressed with desserts there.

        Thanks many. We're big into seafood & fish, so it sounds as if we should give it a try.

          I had dinner there last year. I found the fish boring, but the vegetables with it were wonderful.
