Great views from the terrace & front dining room- ocean, coast & sunset. But- very busy & not a great deal of care in making the drinks. I had a "Bloody Mary" - but very bland. The food is OK - but not great. No real pride in the food service, although the waitress was very attentive. My wife had... More

Came as a walk in and was told that it would be 45 minutes to an hour, after asking twice and seeing other people get seated before us that came in after us. We ended up waiting for 1 hour 25 minutes and then only after I asked for a third time. Then to see a number of empty tables,... More

We stayed at the nearby Inn at the Cove motel which did not offer dining facilities and having reviewed the Ventana Grill on trip advisor embarked on the short walk to the Restaurant. We arrived 30 minutes before the Kitchen closed and the restaurant was emptying which enabled to us to get a table immediately. We just went for mains,... More

After planning to stop in Pismo Beach in the main area for lunch, we were discouraged by the crowds and lines at many places. With time a factor in our traveling, we checked online for other options and Ventana Grill came up. SO happy with this choice! The meal was excellent (awesome wedge salad too!), promptly delivered by an attentive... More

Food was high end, staff was attentive and never let your water or drink glass go empty. Bloody Mary bar, crab legs, chocolate covered strawberries, view overlooking the ocean.

The Ventana Grill was amazing! Call and make a reservation two weeks prior to going. Ask to sit at the corner window table to see an incredible sunset. Food was very good. Had the wedge salad and red crab encrusted mahi. Would definitely come back

Ventana Grill is situated on the cliffs north of Pismo Beach, near several local hotels. The menu is basic California-style grill food, with lots of Mexican touches. The service was friendly, and the dinners we had were very good, but the great views overlooking the Pacific make Ventana Grill even more worth seeking out.

We were looking forward to a great dinner out with an amazing ocean view. I had read the reviews for this restaurant and we thought...how could we go wrong? It started out with a very limited menu & bad service, slow inattentive service by a young man with attitude that should be working at Denny's. When our tortilla (instead of... More
