I'm sorry to say it was the worst fish taco I've ever had. I took the 2nd one home to doctor it up. The Halibut was moist & tender but flat with NO flavor. Salsa didn't help. The portions are generous. The fresh made flour shell was delicious, it definitely out flavored the other ingredients. Some sauce was underneath the... More

Our group decided to pack a picnic lunch yesterday and head down the coast from Cambria, CA and pick out a spot to eat and whale watch. Well, we found many nice spots, but the air was crisp and the wind was blowing at 20+ mph, so we had to come up with plan B. Plan B was decided once... More

Just stopped in for a drink and some food at the bar. The view was great and the food was good. When the Dinner menu time comes expect a significant increase in prices. Overall the place was nice but sometimes when you sit at the bar, there is too much information from the servers that is overheard. It wasn't a... More

We enjoyed a fabulous early dinner at the Ventana Grill on a cold and rainy evening in February. The busy friendly staff is quick to anticipate our needs without being overbearing. After a delicious Manhattan for the lady and a NA beer for myself, we thankfully split a fresh green salad and a bowl of house made chowder. The plates... More

Excellent food. Excellent service. And Fantastic Sunset views!! Be sure to make an advance reservation if you want to see the sunset over the ocean. We had the Mahi Mahi and Sea Bass dinners...both were wonderful. This restaurant has a Mexican-Sea food flare which includes homemade tortillas with choice of salsas. Delicious !!

We arrived in Pismo Beach on Valentine's Day and had forgotten to make dinner reservations. We walked into Ventana Grill and even though they were busy they were able to seat us at a table with a view. Valentine's Day dinner at the Ventana Grill was excellent. The vegetable enchiladas were filled with many different vegetables and the sauce delicious.... More

My friend and I went for an early lunch here. We had a big booth overlooking the ocean with a pelican putting on a flying display. I had a coconut mojito. Yum! I was surprised by the many Mexican dishes in the menu. I chose the pork sopes. Absolutely delicious with 3 salsas and guacamole. I will be craving them... More

Went here for anniversary dinner with my wife. The food was delicious, the view was amazing, but the dessert was the best part. Try the mud pie. It's hands down the best I've ever had.

Nice restaurant, amazing views and adequate menu. Best to make a reservation to avoid a long wait. Service in the restaurant is always great, but hostesses and bartender can be a little less accommodating. I recommend the Wedge Salad and Pasta or Soup, also the seafood is generally pretty good. It is really all about the view here, best at... More

Sunday Brunch at the Ventana Grill was a memorable experience. Our reservation was for 10, right when it opened. We arrived at 9:45 and there was already a line. At 10 when the door opened, those with reservations were invited to form a separate line. We were seated immediately at a window booth as we had requested in our reservation.... More
