We had a private room on the lower level for a celebration of life event. The views are breathtaking and the food and service was excellent. One of the appetizers was stuffed mushrooms.....could have eaten a whole platter of them they were so good.

What great food. The shrimp cocktail is a meal in itself with three large shrimp on the glass bowl and the base with the red sauce full of shrimp pieces. Nacho grande is exactly that. Too much to eat for one person. I would suggest you share with friends. We ladies ate there three days in a row. You are... More

We had dinner here and were delightfully pleased. I would recommend the burrito w/ beef. Excellent sauce and it is more than enough to fill you up. We had the pleasure to be present at sunset and it made the evening that much better. This is not an upscale restaurant by any means, so don't go dressed up. It's very... More

From the looks, we expected better food. The vibe and view is upscale but both of our entrees (fish & steak) were a bit tough and overdone. There's also almost nothing for someone who can't do spicy food. We would come back, just to take in the view, good service, and ambiance but for cocktails & perhaps an appetizer or... More

The food quality was horrible, the waiter was very rude and did not care to make things right! He said you are the 1st customers who have ever complained! Really? I doubt that, even if it were true, that is NOT how you speak to your customers! We asked to speak to a Manager to address both the food quality... More

Located right near the cliff. Outstanding view especially on the sunset. Service was very good, showed that they really concerned for our well beings as we have quite a big group. Food tastes okay, not so great but not too bad either. Had a very good times with friends overthere anyways.

My wife and I had a very nice get-away weekend last weekend in Pismo Beach. We decided to try Ventana Bar and Grill for dessert since it was next to our hotel. Not only did the restaurant have an awesome ocean view, but we were amazed the quality of the hand-made desserts. My wife ordered the chocolate fondu and was... More

People obviously go here to watch the sunset. The place was packed with a long wait when we arrived just before sunset on a Thursday evening, but after the sun went down and the views disappeared, it cleared out quickly. The service was great and the food very good.

Loved the Ventana Grill in Pismo Beach! The food was great, and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection. The decor and ambiance was very nice, but not stuffy. I dressed up a little, but my husband and son wore jeans, which was just fine. We will definitely be back!
