Happy to say the magic has returned in spades. Great food, great service. Highly recommend this wonderful experience.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMa beautiful hotel...The Ventana Inn is a beautiful hotel. It is set in the woods and the views are outstanding. The service at the restaurant is fabulous. The food was good... not great. I didn't think it was anything special. Very lovely.. but I would try someplace else the next time I am in the area.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's been a while since weIt's been a while since we had had dinner here, and still found the ambiance and food great. Had a choice of a fix price dinner menus with 4 course (including desssert) or a la carte.
There were 4 of us dining & 2 did a la carte & 2 fix price. The beet salad was very ggod and the scallop course was excellent. Everything beautifully presented. Artichoke & prawn dish very good as well. The entrees, 2 hailbut with fennel puree , duck dish , and short rib & NY strip - excellent.
Cream brullee dessert & lemon with berries both excellent.
Service was great. Def would go back for a special occasian.
Note- nice ofr lunch stop on Big Sur coast, esp if a clear day & dine ouside.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience.Wonderful dining experience. The 4 course menu offered a variety of choices and everything was prepared well. My date has food allergies and the waiter did a great job with suggestions and offered a choice not on the menu. The setting was very romantic, quiet, and I am sure the view would have been wonderful if not for the fog. I highly recommend stopping in if you are visiting Big Sur.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was inventive andThe food was inventive and delicious, the service impeccable.
