Stopped in for a fast lunch while visiting the central coast. I think we were lucky to get in and out as fast as we did, since it was about 1:30. The Grill is a beautiful restaurant on the ocean with a great view. The chicken enchiladas and carnitas tacos were good. The menu is sort of a cross between... More

Go there for the view alone. But the food, ambiance, and service make it worthwhile as well. We were there for lunch and everyone had different, tasty salads. But the glass front overlooking the Pacific is what sells the place.

My husband and I went for dinner. Pretty location on the beach. My fish was a little disappointing. Not a lot of flavor. We did enjoy the wedge salad. I would go back to try a different dish.

This place has amazing views and excellent staff. I really enjoyed my fish taco and pasta dish. Our waiter Jeremy was so attentive and courteous he made my birthday a real treat! The surprise dessert with candle was so sweet. The food is varied and very good. I would definitely go back to this restaurant too bad I live in... More

The Ventana Grill is a fresh surprise a long and otherwise casual dining establishment Coast of Central Calif. It is warm atmosphere coupled with a superb view of the sunset over the ocean and the interesting movements of the Pelicans that Roost nearby. It was very busy the night I went so I had dinner in the bar which also... More

Very busy midweek night at Ventana. Decided to eat at the bar. Very accommodating, efficient and friendly waitstaff. Good bar food. Nice vibe. Left my credit card and raincoat there by mistake (I only had one IPA to drink!) and I called the next morning and they had saved both and let me pick them up before opening time. Manager... More

Mexican influence in food style. Food was Good,but different in ingredients. I felt we were also paying for the view.

After reviewing the menu online, I was expecting a weird cuisine but it was FABULOUS! The bartender, Stephen, was a treat as our 2 bottles of Bordeaux had very temperamental corks but he got them out very successfully. We were a party of 4 and the appetizers, entrees and dessert were all very tasty and pleasingly presented. Ventana is like... More

Make sure to call ahead and place a reservation as this place is always busy. Breathtaking views of the cliffs with the best Filet I have ever tasted.
