Ventana is located in downtown Excelsior Springs, MO. The atmosphere is great, service is also great. After our food arrived we noticed another table receive their food.

We stayed at The Elms and they recommended this for dinner. I really enjoyed the older building with exposed brick, and the food was good. Using the word "Gourmet" in the title is a bit of a stretch, but we enjoyed our meals.

So glad we followed the recommendations to eat here. The food was delicious, and we would definitely go back to try something else on the menu. We, of course, would HAVE to have some cheesecake!

My daughter & I go here for "date nights" - and everything is always wonderful. We have never ordered anything we didn't love. Our favorite is their cheesecake, though - it's absolutely wonderful! The place is beautiful, the atmosphere is nice, the people are great, & the food is excellent. Highly recommend.
