Anniversary Dinner

My husband and I ate here for our one year anniversary dinner. We both ordered steak, which was cooked to perfection. I enjoyed a peach tea as well, which wasn't amazing. The restaurant makes Harry Potter butter beer in house, which I should have traded for my tea. The staff was great, the food was... read more

Had the Mahi fish sandwich with coleslaw and jalapeños, portobello mushroom pasta and Cajun pasta. The Mahi was very good, the mushroom pasta only had 4-5 slices of mushroom, but a nice amount of zucchini. The Cajun pasta wasn't very spicy, so we asked for some red pepper flakes. The different glasses of red wine we tried were good.

We mainly go there for the homemade desserts; the carmel pecan cheesecake is so delicious. The dinner we had was so good too. We had the lasagna which was a huge portion, enough for 2 meals and we had the roast beef dinner, also very good. We will be back for dinner again soon!

Nice local spot with above avg. food. Steaks to pasta served. The architecture of the old building is interesting. Ventana's offers a deal in conjunction with Slightly Off Broadway playhouse.

Amazing service!!!! Cheesecake so good you want to eat till you pop! Everything we tried was very good, and the service is second to none....and this comes from a very picky diner. Friendly, caring staff wants you to be satisfied. You have to try this place!

We had the most amazing dinner here, the food was so yummy! This was recommended by the owners of the B and B Inn on Crescent Lake, and they are right ....this was a perfect dinner for our anniversary weekend.

Within walking distance from The Elms, but still a couple of blocks. Downtown area, so you can walk around the local business after. The decor and atmosphere was great. Servers were friendly, and willing to make recommendations (something I have come to appreciate at any business--when an employee says

this was the best Italian food I have ever had (besides my great grandmothers). not at all a chain or trendy style restaurant. atmosphere was pleasing but not too fancy. loved the old style candy shop at the front of the store. saw several families there that must be regulars; both kids and adults seemed to love it.
