In the real center of Ventura, Cafe Fiore offers just about the best lunch and dinner you can find. An extra bonus, your 4-legged buddy can eat along with you in the wonderful outdoor seating area. Service is 6 Star. Food is even better. You can not go wrong here. Lovely seating inside and within walking distance to Ventura Pier.... More

Following the recommendation of our hotel concierge we lunched with 3 others on appetizers and pizza. This is a pretty classy full service restaurant that does a good job with the humble pizza. Us East Coast pizza veterans found the California version perfectly acceptable and enjoyed the building's cool interior, which beckoned many passers by from the hot street outside.... More

Patio dining is delightful. Catch the Happy Hour for fine dining at reasonable prices. Noise inside is overwhelming--so go for the patio or the extension dining area.

I had 2 spectacular meals here. I could eat here every night! They offer many choices and make excellent wine pairing suggestions.

We had dinner at this cute restaurant centrally located in the center of the town of Ventura. The menu was varied and there were several outstanding specials of the day. This was a very pleasant restaurant. The dishes tend to be a little saucy so my advice is to ask for the sauce to be kept to a minimum. The... More

Had a group of 15 and everyone loved it - young and old. Private room in the back made it perfect. And kept us a good distance from the music so we could talk. Carrot soup was an unexpected delight and salmon was a big hit as was butternut ravioli with sage butter. Good wine selection by the glass and... More

I have taken several customers to eat here over the last 4 years. Food is always fresh, tasty and interesting. Drinks are strong and inventive. Definitely a bit more pricey than your other joints but worth the wait. Outdoor seating is charming and really shows off the California lifestyle

However when I ate it the Chicken... More

The food was excellent, service a bit slow. We had reservations for 6:45 and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table for 6. However, we have been here before several years ago, and I will go when in the area again!! Just make the reservations for early and know you will have to probably wait for excellent food.
