This is definitely one of the nicer restaurants in our area, in terms of feeling like it's special occasion worthy. The food is always very good though I'm not a huge fan of the Sunday Brunch; it's a bit pricey in my opinion. The wine and cocktail selection is great and I like the variety of the entrees.

We were staying at the attached hotel and came here for dinner. Good that we made a reservation as the restaurant was extremely busy. The restaurant offered a nice sunset view and the food was pretty decent as well.

Delicious food with a really friendly atmosphere! It is in a beautiful setting, with the views of the sea, and what better way to end the day than a meal out with friends, watching the sun set on a beautiful view of the sea

The Crab Encrusted Mahi Mahi was overcooked with a hard top and overdone with a bland cream sauce. Don't recommend that one. The coconut mojito was summer in... More

The view is excellent and we have been there before it changed hands and was called Pelican Point. The food was very disappointing. My husband had their Pork Burrito.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Ventana Grill. The service was great. Scott, our server; was friendly and very helpful. The vegetarian enchiladas are to die for. And don't get me started on desert! What a gem. Can't wait to return!

I love fish, I love seafood, but often hesitate to rider it in restaurants because it is mostly over cooked and over seasoned. But tonight was perfect.... Orgasmic food...

The descriptions of the food and the food itself are a bit over-produced, but the staff is professional and friendly and the food is very good.
