Lovely Rustic Restaurant

We have eaten lunch and dinner here. We love the fresh bread and the salmon. The rustic interior is beautiful and the service is good. It is our favorite place in town for dinner.

My friend and I visited in July. It looked nice enough inside. I ordered the soup and salad. Way overpriced for the small portion I received. My friend ordered a hamburger. When it came to the table, she cut off a portion for me. It tasted gross and looked like a perfectly formed circular patty. We asked the waitress if... More

Ventana provides generous portions of excellent food, with reasonable prices, a spacious dining area and friendly staff. My wife and I love this place. For adult Harry Potter fans, their Butterbeer is especially delicious. :)

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 good, but the prices were... 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!
