A word from Pacifico Restaurant & Lounge @ Marriott Ventura Beach
At Pacifico Restaurant and Lounge you get the best of both worlds. On one side you will find a cozy lounge with Starbucks by day and a full service bar by night. On the other side you will find a large dining area with an exquisite breakfast buffet which includes one of our top cooks creating gourmet omelets and waffles. Both our breakfast and dinner menus were in part created by our Executive Chef Kirk Parks. You will notice its costal influence with our decadent Baja Benedict made with a fresh lump crab cake for breakfast and our boom boom shrimp appetizer for dinner which is smothered in our home made sweet and spicy chili sauce. At Pacifico Restaurant and Lounge we'll provide guests with the full dining experience whether it is grabbing a glass wine from our local Zaca Mesa collection with one of our signature appetizers or coming in for a relaxing dinner with one of our friendly servers. We encourage locals and tourists both to come in and try us out.

    We went here for Thanksgiving. The service was excellent and the food was great. The pumpkin soup was so good I Gould gave just eaten that. Real mashed potatoes and turkey. Would have like more gravy though.

    We decided to try this venue after seeing the special Thanksgiving menu prepared by Chef Rick Rossignol. We were not disappointed. One had the choice of one of three starters, 4 entree options (including a vegetarian dish) and three dessert choices. I opted for the pork tenderloin which was delicious and my spouse opted for the traditional turkey entree. The portions were plentiful, so much so that I had enough leftovers for 2 more servings. All around a great dining experience.

    For a hotel cafe/dining room, this one is not bad. A bit uninspired on the decor but still bright and user friendy. The waitstaff were very good but seem distracted by the large number of tables in their care. Food better that expected with lots of variety for every palate. If you dpn't want to stray far from the hotel, this is a better than average option.

    Driving through Ventura, CA and had the occasion to have dinner at Pacifico. Nice quiet evening dinner, with salads and an appetizer. Few people and ambient noise minimal. Had a great time, food was delicious. Recommend as a neighborhood gem.

    I choose this resturant thinking it would be a nice place for my mom's 82nd birthday. I was very disappointed. The food was nothing special not even classy. I asked for flowers to be at the table and there were none and they did nothing special for her ie free dessert. I was embarrassed because I thought this was a special place.

    Dined on 7/21/2012
    The hand made pizza is still the best deal. The humus was a little dry this time, so they had to redo it, but still wasn't as good as last time - must be the variation in the chefs. Still this is a great spot and their private dining room is also a great place for a large family or gathering with friends.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    The setup for the buffet line was awkward since the staff had to "cut through" the customers in order to enter and exit the kitchen. The "omelet station" should have been located in a separate place so as not to slow the progress of the "main buffet line." The roast beef was very good, but several of the other "warm" foods in the buffet were not very warm. We thought it a bit peculiar that small boxes of cereal, individual containers of yogurt and "do it yourself toasters" were offered at a buffet costing $25. per person.

    The restaurant itself is well lit, colorful, and in a very pleasant space. I found the food, however, lackluster, and the wait staff were slow and unresponsive. Maybe it was an off day for the staff, but, it left me not wanting to ever return.

    A great place to unwind after strolling Ventura Harbor. The pizza was a pleasant surprise and a great find. It is superb! Better than any California Pizza Kitchen pizza anyday. The kids and I want to go back just for that. Our waitress was especially accomodating and friendly.

    For hotel dining this is a unique spot. We often go for the only "real" hollandaise sauce on eggs benedict in Ventura. This year we decided to eat Thanksgiving there. Amazing how delicious the turkey was and a perfect asparagus was steamed and served w mash potatoes, gravy and stuffing. Wonderful service, delicious food, good wine and spectacular dessert.

    The food was pretty good at this attractive hotel restaurant, but the service was only fair. My wife said that the two waitresses were busy setting up the empty tables for tomorrow's breakfast. The place was not busy--only 4 to 5 tables were taken so the service should have been better. Overall, for dinner, you could do much better by going to Downtown Ventura and eating at one of fine restaurants there.

    Relaxing and convenient dining in this Marriott location. The staff delivers exemplary service and is friendly. The food is what one would expect from a hotel restaurant: safe, average. However, do not order the crab cakes! Other than that, the experience and environment were very nice. Staff is great!

    Our party was at this Cafe for a late weekday business lunch and were the only ones there either indoors or outdoors. We sat ourdoors in a lovely setting. Unfortunately, the "music" was blaring constantly. Several of us repeatedly asked to have it turned down over the next 2 hours but were told they couldn't do that. Thought the food and ambiance were very good none of us will ever return.

    We had a good meal, but the ambiance was not what we expected. It was more of a casual restaurant cafe but with a higher priced menu. It was not a bad experience, but I wouldn't go back when there are other places better suited. I think that it is really designed for people who are staying at the hotel, not for this service.

    Dined on 11/27/2008
    The Thanksgiving dinner was very good. I had the roasted turkey with dressing and sides. Delicious and plentiful. My daughter had the rack of lamb--she's a fussy eater and she was very satisified with her dinner. Kudos on the food. We were seated by the bar and there was a television on. I should have asked to move since this was a bit of a distraction. My only real complaint, however, is that the restaurant was under-staffed--they didn't have enough people on duty to service all the customers promptly. Everything--ordering, getting our dinners, getting refills, getting the bill, getting the receipt--everything took longer than it should have. But on whole, a very good meal.

    There are other places that are better. We got there at 7 and the hostess told the special fish was seabass, yet when we ordered it they had run out and now it was swordfish. It was not that busy so where did the seabass go? My friends food was not very hot- warm. It was not the best experience we have had. I would go again just to see if it was just a fluke.
