Nice view and good food

Mexican fusion was how the hotel described it. The menu is varied enough. The chipotle wings were good, soup was okay. The Sopas and Seafood & Chipotle Penne Pasta were both tasty. The Crab Encrusted Mahi Mahi was overcooked with a hard top and overdone with a bland cream sauce. Don't recommend... read more

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.

Be sure to make reservations. This is a popular place. Window seats are excellent. Service is great. Entrees are interesting. I usually order a special, which have been good. Superb wine choices.

We were staying nearby at the inn at the cove and walked here for dinner. Our party of 6 was quickly accommodated and our server quickly bought menus and water for all. Not a pretentious restaurant but it got the extras right with nice linen and cutlery and bread was freshly baked flatbread /tacos which were great served with a... More
