The Sea Venture Restaurant located in the Sea Venture Resort Hotel in Pismo Beach is one of the best on the Central Coast by offering a very enjoyable and top value dining experience. We have eaten dinner at this restaurant numerous times, including taking visiting family and friends, and never had a bad experience--it's definitely one of our favorites.
First, the full service menu offers a good selection of seafood, fish, meat and poultry and accompanying items. The food is very tasty, well-prepared and nicely presented all at a fair price--whether ordering from the menu in the normal restaurant area, from the tapas style menu when sitting at the well-designed bar or from either menu when seated at a table in the area with live music and a modest dance floor. The restaurant's wine menu offers a decent selection of well-chosen varietals at reasonable prices.
Second, the service from everyone working at the restaurant is top-notch. The entire staff is professional, cheerful and helpful, including two different chefs--one for the main menu and one for the tapas menu. The friendly and excellent tapas chef prepares the food in the middle of the ample oval-shaped bar which provides for an inviting nice touch to sitting at the bar for dinner or just for drinks.
Third, the restaurant's overall pleasant physical environment is a major element of an enjoyable and relaxing dining experience allowing for normal conversation. Whether seated in the main restaurant area or at the bar, the continuous wall of windows allows customers to appreciate the beautiful beach, ocean and sunset views. The subdued but practical lighting throughout the restaurant and bar is an important element contributing to a non-intrusive relaxed atmosphere. An outside patio dining area is available, as well as access to two separate large rooms for group events, all of which offer the aforementioned gorgeous views; and, the aquarium near the entrance provides a nice touch.
Wednesday evenings often have a high quality professional jazz quartet performing from 6 to 9 PM at no extra charge, which substantially adds to the overall value when dining at the Sea Venture Restaurant.
