Great food amazing location. Its not our first time here. Both times have been memorable. Great Bartender by far since the last visit. Kiko I believe is how his name is spelt was fantastic great recommendations as far as food upbeat, and fantastic with the Menu. He is the reason we will be back this time for a sunset view.... More

This is my absolute favorite spot to eat when I am in Pismo. The view is spectacular. Nowhere in town has a better view of the sunset. Placed on a cliff on the beach, this is truly a gem. I love the fresh, warm tortillas they bring out with honey butter, and assorted salsas to sample. Our entrees were all... More

Awesome salmon dish and beautiful restaurant, but was overly crowded at lunch. Service did an awesome job despite the large crowd.

Delicious food, tasty cocktails and an amazing view. Servers are very attentive. Quite a range of prices for food - they have a great burger for about $10, or steaks and seafood for up to $40. Also, check out the Stairs to Nowhere just beside the restaurant - there's a spiral staircase that used to lead from the cliffside down... More

Every time I am anywhere near the Ventana Grill, I make sure to have lunch or dinner there. Daytime is really nice because of the expansive view. You are right on the ocean, right over the ocean really! I love the food. The staff is very friendly. The portions are generous. I can't wait to go back.

We loved this place. The menu was different, someone called it latin fusion, but whatever the genre, the food was outstanding. Good staff and a great ocean view too. Definitely a place we will return to.

We stayed in Pismo for three nights in Dec and tried the Ventana on the first night for a drink - having had dinner there a few years when it was under previous ownership. The menu is now strongly Mexican influenced and we weren't particularly tempted (again would stress we don't eat meat so would rather spend money on good... More
