we came for lunch. We know the owners. The portions on the food are very generous and we could not eat it all. It was fresh, presented well and great views of the ocean. I would like to come back and have dinner.

Can't go wrong here. Fantastic service, great bar, succulent food and a gorgeous beach sunset (if you time it right). I've even watched whales go by while enjoying a glass of wine. Wonderful fusion of seafood with a Mexican flair.

We had drinks and appetizer during happy hour, both were good. It has a beautiful ocean view and can watch the sunset. Very convenient to our hotel next door. Wasn't anything we didn't like.

After a day of wine tasting, we enjoyed happy hour and stayed for dinner. The view is beautiful from every table, just make sure to get there before sunset. The nachos at happy hour easily serves 2 or more. Our dinner began with fresh handmade tortillas and salsa. The Blue Agave Rib-Eye Steak with chipotle glaze was cooked to perfection,... More

This is supposed to a Mexican restaurant, and if you want what every other Mexican restaurant offers, this place is not for you. It is the least typical Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. This not a criticism. The food was excellent, creative, inventive, ample portions. The restaurant is perched on a bluff, overlooking the coast. As we were there... More

We come up to Pismo Beach quite often, but we had never tried Ventana Grill before. After reading all the reviews we thought we would give it a try. Didn't get to see the view, since we went to dinner at 7:30pm, but it's a very nice restaurant inside. The service was great, no problems whatsoever, and we really enjoyed... More

I have been going to this location for over 24 years. The location right on the cliff overlooking San Luis Bay is breathtaking. The add a menu with wonderful choices, great wait and bar staff, tempting desserts and you have a winner. This time I was joined by three friends. We started with cocktails. One being a pineapple blend Martini... More

We headed here for a sunset drink and it was heaving, very popular and they don't take reservations. Nice buzzy bar area and balcony to watch the setting sun (no drinks outside). We then stayed on for dinner and had to wait for a table, but worth the wait. Food was delicious (clam chowder and fish and chips) - but... More

Besides the 5-star view, the staff is spot on, the food is amazing. I ordered the shrimp and diver's scallops; TDF. Served with again, amazing, bowls of rice and of beans. Gourmet, to be sure. Not something out of a box or can. I'm sure anything there would be good. They hand roll their tortillas right in the restaurant space,... More

This restaurant was welcoming. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I ate Mahi mahi and it was delicious. My husband ate clam chowder and loved it as well. Our waitress was helpful and made good recommendations. We drank local wine which was delicious and reasonably priced.
