Service and food is great. Lamb is particularly good and the martinis are strong, I experimented with an avacado martini and wouldn't recommend it.

The atmosphere and service are very good. Food and prices are just average at best. On the weekends they have GREAT music on the patio!

This is a hot spot for the downtown Ventura scene with live bands on the weekends, great cocktails, and really delicious food. Because of the chic hard surfaces, it can get noisy, but a great place to go pre-theatre or pre-movie...good date spot. :)

Stopped in last night for a drink (a Manhattan). It was so cozy and quiet on a Thursday night. The live music started and it was a little loud for us so we went outside on their really nice patio with heaters. We could still hear the music and the volume was just right (the group was very good) And... More

I had been here previously and the dinner was just okay. this time the food was very good. I got the butternut squash pasta and my hubby got the italian sausage. Both were very good. My pineapple rum mojito was delicious. We would definitely try this place again.

I only ate here once but was very happy with it. Friendly staff gave a good wine recommendation (which, of course, I've forgotten) which paired very well with the ravioli di ricotta -- also excellent. Food was very well presented and moderate portion size (which I much prefer!).

The room is dimly lit. Too dim for my liking. They were very busy which is usually a good sign. The wait staff was prompt with menus and waters. I could barely read the menu for the lack of light,. The food service was dreadfully slow and we had three children with us. The lobster bisque was very good but... More
