Great views, good value

We went for brunch to celebrate a birthday with about 12 people. Make sure you get there early on Sunday morning to snag a table with a view. We had the all you can eat brunch with unlimited champagne and bloody marys. Good service. Liked the omelette bar. I would have liked to see some more veg... read more

I have previously eaten at Ventana on a previous trip to the US. This meal was memorable, and as such we decided to make another stop at Pismo Beach during our travels, specifically to enjoy our wedding anniversary meal at this restaurant. As such, we made a booking a month in advance, and received a confirmation. Upon arriving at the... More

We stopped in for a glass of wine and a small appetizer. The bartender was very friendly. They had a good selection of wine which we enjoyed while watching the sunset.

180 degree oceanfront spectacular, breathtaking, soothing, relaxing, romantic and exhilarating view. Appropriately named Ventana to the ocean. Food was fresh and served on a timely fashion. Appetizers are generously sized for sharing. Great wine and tequila choice list. A must try if you're in the area. Great service.

Situated adjacent to the Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge, this Italian style restaurant offered an excellent menu, the server was helpful, and efficient, and the meal was delicious. In the lobby entrance was a framed photo of a spiral staircase, when we asked about it we were told it is just outside. we located it after dinner, and since we... More

Food was excellent as was service. The restaurant is not over crowded so you can talk and not feel like the other guests are on top of you. A really lovely experience, highly recommend it.

Ventana Grill is a favorite of mine when I'm on the coast. The food is fabulous! Have a Bloody Mary with fresh crab as a garnish. The tacos are so fresh, light and delicious. My favorite is their Sunday brunch. Like all Sunday brunches, this brunch comes with bottomless mimosas, BUT, Ventana Grill also includes bottomless vodka based drinks! You... More
