Beautiful sunset views with your cocktail

Very enjoyable dinner with a beautiful view of the Pacific ocean. Prompt service, very good food, and a fun bar. Definitely recommend for those visiting Pismo Beach.

We went here for my birthday as we had read previous reviews, and thought it looked like a good place to try. We were not disappointed. We had made a reservation for 8:00, however we did have to wait about 15 minutes before we were seated which was the only grievance. We're we were seated, we ordered the margaritas which... More

The views are to die for and the food was wonderful. I had an ahi salad and it was scrumptious. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Now, I have ONLY done cocktails and appetizers, never dinner in the restaurant but this little gem is a perfect place to end your day on the Central Coast. Perched on the cliffs in the Shell Beach area of Pismo Beach is the fine dining Ventana restaurant and grill, surrounded by a balcony with choice spots for viewing the beautiful... More

This restaurant was virtually right next door to our hotel which was awesome. We had two dinners there and found the food to be very good, the view of the beach lovely and the service good. I would go there again for sure.

Arrived in Pismo Beach ready for lunch. Ventana was a short walk from our hotel. Views were even better than we had hoped. Décor is beautiful. Service excellent. Burgers were excellent, clams were good, nachos were good. Would go again, and again.

We went here for dinner last night after reading all the good reviews from others and were not disappointed in any way. The dinner was one of the best ones we've ever had -- it was THAT good. We started with appetizers of the carne asada nachos and the steamed clams and were delighted with the fresh tastes and rich... More

Food was good and we would go back. That being said it wasn't fantastic, just consistently good. No complaints but nothing remarkable to mention. The view was great as it is right on the ocean with an outdoor wrap around balcony as well. Nice venue.

Had one night in Pismo so decided on Ventana for dinner. Got there just in time for sunset. The restaurant has a stunning outlook over the sea. The place was very busy so we had a bit of a wait and had a drink at the bar. It was worth the wait because our seats were in a great position.... More
