Sunset Dining in Pismo Beach
Situated on a bluff overlooking the beach, the Sea Venture is a wonderful way to experience sunset dining. The food is good and the service is friendly and attentive.

We had a very enjoyable and delicious dinner with an ocean view. Kudos to the chef! Everyone was friendly & gracious. We had reservations and because we had to wait only about 10 minutes for our table, they comped us a glass of wine.

We had a delightful anniversary
We had a delightful anniversary dinner at Sea Venture last Saturday night. The sunset view created a soothing ambiance, and the presentation of the dishes was artistic. Our service was very good for a Saturday night, but we noticed that the couple at the table next to ours had a hard time getting the staff's attention, and they seemed to also have a problem with their appetizer. Overall, though, we would recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner that matches the seaside setting.

Dining with a view.
Went to SeaVenture Hotel for our anniversary. I had not been to Pismo in years so I did not know where to plan to eat out for our special night. Read the reviews for the restaurant on-site, so I gave it a shot. As a hotel guest, I could purchase a voucher at a discounted rate, that was nice. To our surprise, everything was really, really good! I have nothing but good things to say about the food. My husband had the oysters rockafeller, clam chowder and the prime rib special, he loved it all. I had the deconstructed bruschetta, beet salad and the double chicken breast, it was all fab! As you can tell, we ordered way to much, so we had some to spare and no room for dessert, do I am not able to comment on them. Service was a bit slow.

Wonderful Birthday Surprise!
My husband and I are in the food industry so we are very critical when going to a new restaurant-but it was my birthday, and my husband surprised me with an amazing meal, with very informative staffing. All while we watched a sun set over the Pacific ocean.
We tried the fruit, cheese and nut platter as starter, followed by oysters rockerfeller, and confit/onion flat bread. We each had different salads which were underwhelming and without flavor-however the presentation was beautiful.
Entree's: husband had filet mignon (perfect temperature) and I had the Sea Venture -spicy blend between a seafood risotto and a jambalya-great flavors.
At sunset! Creme brulee-lots of vanilla bean and my chocolate torte w/ GREAT ice cream

Amazing food at reasonable prices
They have a great happy hour mon-fri 4-6 that is worth going to every day. Not just because of the drink specials, but the food selection. As for the full menu during dinner, the clam chowder was the best we had ever had. Yes, splash is still good, but these two shouldn't even be compared. The Caesar dressing was good, but the lettuce wedges it's served on is a bit different and difficult to eat. The chicken was some of the best and the top serloin was also really good. However, if you order the top sirloin, don't allow anybody in your group get the filet because the filet at the Sea Venture is unbelievable and puts the top sirloin to shame.

Brunch at Sea Venture
We picked this place because it is right on the beach, you can make reservations, and it has very convenient parking. The restaurant is on the top floor of the hotel structure and you can get ocean view tables. Brunch was very well prepared and reasonable. The Bloody Mary was excellent.

Great for special occassions
My family and I went here after my graduation from Cal Poly. The view is great, as you're looking right out at the beach and the ocean. I can't think of a restaurant with a better view. The food was very good and very nicely presented. The service was excellent and our waiter was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The only drawback is that we were seated fairly close to the bar and the kitchen, so it was kind of loud. There were five people in our party and the individuals on one side of the table couldn't really hear what the individuals on the other side of the table were saying. Other than that, the whole experience was great. I would definitely recommend Sea Venture for a special occasion.

Great lunch, great service!
I have always enjoyed dining at Sea Venture. I miss the Sunday Brunch! Our Father's Day brunch was perfect and priced just right.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
What an amazing dinner. The food was excellent, as always. Most noticeable is the staff at Sea Venture is experienced and polite, without seeming too formal. My daughter's Birthday was extra special. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful evening we won't soon forget. Bravo!

Best kept secret in Pismo
This little gem is hidden in the hotel Sea Venture on the (3rd?) floor. It was recommeded to me by a wonderful hostess at the Sand Castle Inn named Debbie. (Kuddos to you Debbie) My husband and I went there for our 30th anniversary and it couldn't have been better. It is quaint, with wonderful views of the sunset from every table. The service was impecable. The atmostphere was warms and friendly with accustics that made it easy to have a conversation at our table. I loved it so much I took my college roommate and her husband there when they came west to visit me this summer. (we drove down from the Bay area). Bonus is...It is reasonably priced!!!

Drinks and Dinner with a View
With an astounding view of Pismo Beach and the Pacific Ocean, one can sit on the glass enclosed patio enjoying appetizers with wine or a favorite cocktail. I enjoyed the Makers Mark Old Fashioned. The wine list is good as it features a number of Central Coast wines. As for the appetizers (small plates), ourguests enjoyed the Pismettes, which consisted of multiple skewers holding chicken, shrimp, top sirloin, and vegetables with three dipping sauces. The pistachio seared ahi was a wonderful dinner entre that came with a mango couscous and a sweet and spicy Thai chili sauce with wasabi.
The main bar was busy and not noisy. The food at the bar seemed to keep the patrons happy.

great food poor cosmopolitan
Food was wonderful. They need to learn to take of customer's needs and put the customer first. I asked for a cosmopolitan made a certain way and I was told that it is a premade mix and couldn't be changed. The waiter said he would try but it came back their way and not mine. They need to learn about good customer service!!!

We had a great time, enjoyed the sunset and will go back again!

Not a romantic, quiet place.
Although the view was nice, the noise at the bar was so loud we asked to be moved into a quieter, unused area. Food was good for this type restaurant but nothing extremely different but enjoyable. We would return if we stayed at the Sea Venture again.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite beach restaurant. Very accommodating. Great atmosphere. Ocean view, on the sand. Chef prepared a non-menu vegan meal on request. Server attentive and very helpful with requests. Wife always enjoys the menu items.

perfect for romance
This was our first time eating here and decided to have a sunset dinner in one of the booths. We wanted a romantic place since we had just got married that afternoon! Everything was perfect and our waiter Chris bent over backwards to make sure our evening was special, and our food was outstanding!!!!!. We will be returning several more times!!! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We met our good friends for their 15th anniversary and had a wonderful night. As requested, we received a table by the window and watched the sun set as we began. The restaurant is nicely laid out, not too crowded, and carpeted, so it was quiet! Corkage is only $10, so we brought two nice bottles of local wine. Our server, Chris, was fantastic, and a total pro. He really knew how not to rush us, as this was a special occasion. Our food was excellent. I had oysters Rockefeller to start, and the pork chop for dinner. Both were beautifully prepared, and the chop was breaded and moist. It was a very relaxing evening. Highly recommended.

We had reservations for our dining experience for our family. The child's dinner was delicious! I expected regular mac n cheese but was joyed to taste how good it was! My overall experience was amazing and will be a memory I will not soon forget, we loved the food, dining atmosphere and the view. I was pleased that it was right above our room at SeaVenture Resort :)

I had the beef...it was drenched
I had the beef...it was drenched in gravy, tasty but the beef flavor was lost. This is a gorgeous restaurant looking out on to the Pacific Ocean in Pismo Beach. A great to stay, too. Excellent parking situation.

Exceeded our expectations
The restaurnat at SeaVenture Resort was a very leasant surprise. Being in an older building, we expected the restaurant to offer a great view, but figured the fare would be just so-so. We were wrong. The food was wonderful,a nd the service great. Our server was super attentive and personable. We had a wonderful meal with an amazing oceanfront view. It was a great time and we will certainly be back.

brunch at Sea
If your looking for a quiet, relaxing
Brunch the Sea Venture is your place. The
Menu is just right for a fine selection of
Items for whatever your feeling like for
breakfast. I recommend the Eggs Benedict
.I feel I need to try other items because
of items other customers ordered looked
Recommendations. Try it! Few places
offer the quality of food and service while
overlooking the beautiful beach.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great meal. Our server, Chris I believe his name was, was great. Hat's off to the chef. I'd never liked brussel sprouts until I had his. Great view, and the best restaurant in Pismo that I've found yet. I would definitely go again.

A Neighboorhood Gen with a Vaiew
We enjoyed our evening with friends. The food was very good. However, the noise-level was a bit high making it difficult to carry on a booth conversation without shouting. The service was good, but the waitress needed to be reminded about an after dinner drink. Unfortunately, we didn't get to take advantage of the ocean view because our reservation was after sunset.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great prix fix Holiday menu with several choices including traditional turkey dinner. Service was excellent!

Delicious Food, Spectacular View
We enjoyed a great Thanksgiving dinner at Sea Venture. Beautiful view of the ocean, delicious food, prompt service. I appreciated how both the bartender and waiter knew their wines. I'm not a fan of turkey but it was Thanksgiving after all so I went for it. Everything on the plate was nicely done and the dessert bar was fantastic. We will make this a holiday tradition!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanksgiving at the Sea Venture
My family, with friends as our guests, uses Sea Venture as the special Holiday meal destination. Initially chosen because of Prime Rib on the menu, it has become our favorite, alltime restaurant. I especially like the online reservations, with invitations to guests and confirmations & reminders. This place has it all : Great food, efficient and friendly service, scenic ocean views, and magnificent sunsets.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went for our wedding anniversary and plan to diner here once a month.
12/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great service...Great Food
Had never heard of this restaurant, but it had some good reviews so we decided to try it. View and food were excellent. We shared the salmon and the prime rib. Both were great. The salmon came with a potato cake and broccolini which all complimented each other. The prime rib was cooked to perfection. Even more impressive was the service. Everything served in a timely manner and with a waiter that has a great personality. We will definitely be back.
