If you come here during the day, you won't be disappointed by the fantastic view of the ocean directly below. Every table has an ocean view, even if you aren't seated at the windows. And the food was a treat for several reasons: Good selections, fresh, and appetizing presentation; not overly expensive considering the setting; portions larger than I expected.... More

This restaurant overlooks the ocean, but we arrived after dark, so missed that. We hadn't booked, and needed to wait about 15 mins for a table, which was no problem. Service was excellent, as was the food. It's not the cheapest place around, but then, you do get what you pay for, at least here you do. Only downside, the... More

The food was great. Not typical. You can of course get the clams but we had crab cakes and the soup. The meal comes with homemade tortillas and the view at sunset is amazing. You are hanging over the cliffs.

Great views from almost every seat. Went for a sunset dinner and loved the food - especially the halibut ceviche appetizer, iceberg wedge salad (enough to share) and the Arrachera steak and prawns. Good drinks too - we tried the tequila flights (3 tastes). Upscale ocean view restaurant with full bar - menu is what I would call Nuevo Mex... More

Ventana Grill is on the cliffs overlooking Pismo Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The views are spectacular and the restaurant is beautiful itself. Rumor has it that a local artist owed the owner quite a bit of money so the owner took payment in sculptures. Luckily we had a reservation as the place was full. We were seated immediately and...

Great tucker, great views, great service. Walked here from our hotel and were greeted with a welcoming smile from the young lady at the front desk. Didn't have a reservation and at the time there were no tables vacant. Ushered to the bar where we were greeted again with a smile and a very helpful barman. A couple of drinks... More

My wife and I are new to the area and have fallen in love with it. We're real foodies and love exploring the local restaurants. We've found some excellent places but this place gets our AMAZING rating. This restaurant is beautiful and the view of the ocean is breathtaking. We went in for a late lunch and we both really...

Beautiful setting to enjoy dinner and the sunset right on the pacific. Service was a little slow. Food was fine; though on the expensive side.
