“What a view!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Another place where the view surpassed the food. We sat in the bar area for happy hour and ordered a couple cocktails and appetizers. The food was pretty good. Nothing outstanding but great view/atmosphere.

“Fabulous Cocktails”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stayed at the Shore Cliff hotel next door and as my husband wasn't feeling too well we hoped this restaurant would be ok. It was perfect. He perked up with a nice cocktail and the food was very good. It was dark when we got in there but I should think the view through the Ventana is wonderful. Nothing to dislike. Would go again.

“Unbelievable Value for Unbeatable Location”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

My husband and I live in SB and have been to Ventana 3 times.
It is situated about 20 feet above the ocean with huge glass windows, modern tasteful decor, top notch food and friendly service.
We end up saying how can they do this for such reasonable prices. Were even there on a Groupon once for my husband's b'day and the service was above and beyond. A very nice place!!

“Great food, very pleasant staff”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were visiting Pismo Beach for our Birthdays. We called the restaurant last minute to see if we could get a reservation. The hostess told us that if we came in around 4:30, our chances of getting a table would be better. When we got there; this sweet hostess seated us in a corner booth with a great view of the upcoming sunset. We told her it was our Birthdays and she said hers was Tuesday. Very sweet lady. Our waitress was very sweet also and very accommodating, going back to the kitchen to check with the chef with regard to my special order. Our dinner was wonderful and my husband loved his dessert. We will come back here when visiting Pismo again, and i have recommended this place to my friends who visit Pismo often.

“So good we went 2 nights in a row”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Fresh, delicious and imaginative food. Had to go two nights to try everything we wanted. Breathtaking view, try to catch the sunset.
