Great food and excellent service from Beau. Local favorite serving excellent steaks. We had the tomahawk ribeye. Dog friendly—they grilled an unseasoned chicken breast for our pup.

Went early. Adjacent to beach hotel so may be more crowded later in the evening.
Food very good to excellent. Personable service.

Ideal sunset view of the ocean from our table.

Prices compatible with the area.

Food quality was good as usual..The issue we had was our waiter. The service was substandard.. slow. To top off the evening we had to pay to leave the parking garage, after our waiter happened to loose our parking ticket
during dinner. He gave us a copy of our
dinner check saying it would get us out of the garage. It did not. Galling

Aloha Steakhouse is by far a restaurant that you must experience. From the minute you walk in the door you feel like a king or queen.
every employee will go out of their way to make your requests, not only filled, but they are more than happy to make your dining experience one of the best you will ever have. The menu is so complete that everyone in your party will always find the perfect meal. Whether you share, or have enough room to eat one of their fabulous desserts by yourself, you must try one of their desserts. Our server Shelby definitely gets 11 out of 10 stars. She was better than perfect. Thank you for making our first date better than we could have imagine.

First time dining:
Wait staff : Very nice
Apps. : Good
Main : Eddie’s Filet : Nice but mushroom gravy overpowered the taste of steak - Too salty
Dessert : creme brûlée was mushy- sent back
Coffee : Burnt - sent back
Side : coconut rice was nice

Really enjoyed the wait staff bartenders and the hosting crew. Everything was perfect for our anniversary including sitting outside and listening to the waves crash. I highly recommend the stuffed portobello mushrooms. The Cowboy bone-in steak was also amazing as well as the well-made mashed potatoes. Clam chowder was also fantastic and had clams in each bite. You can't go wrong here. The wine selection was also "fun" and very diverse with something for everyone.

The food and the service at Aloha Steakhouse were both fantastic! We went the day before Halloween and our adorable server was dressed as Spongebob Squarepants. Although we were her only guests seated outside, she was very attentive, checking in to make sure we were okay. We started with the steamed artichoke and was so yummy! Perfectly steamed and the herbs were great. I had a filet mignon and a Caesar salad. My filet was cooked perfectly to medium rare and SO TENDER! The salad was had tasty dressing and croutons with great crunch. My husband's ribeye and mashed potatoes were also perfectly cooked and really, really delicious. Finally, we finished with the chocolate soufflé cake. We'd ordered ahead, so it came out right on time. The soufflé was warm, had a lovely crust, and paired perfectly with the ice cream. I highly recommend it all!

We were seated right away. Ordered drinks. Nice selection. We always look forward to a great steak. Aloha did not disappoint. The baseball cut teriyaki was delicious. Cooked the way we ordered it.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant

Service was fine, but every item of food that should have been hot was borderline ice cold. Salad and blue cheese was fine, but everything else (3 entrees and sides) were ice cold.

We had to wait over 1/2 hour even though we
d made reservations in advance. Walk-ups had the same wait time so really no benefit to making the reservations at all. Service and food were good once we were seated. Especially liked the cocktails and dessert. Would come back.

From beginning to end, a delightful, delicious evening. Charleen and her staff were attentive and friendly. The decor is elegantly beachy. There was a wedding reception in their sectioned off area near the boardwalk, a wedding anniversary and a birthday celebration all in our area of the steakhouse. Aloha supplied large decorated picture frames for celebrators to have their keepsake picture taken. We even watched the sun set over the ocean. It was a great experience with the best prepared fare you will find anywhere. We are from Phoenix and whenever we make a trip to Ventura, we always make a reservation for dinner at Aloha. It's our favorite steakhouse.

Beautiful place to celebrate our 27th anniversary. The setting right on the Promenade on the ocean was gorgeous. Our server Reagan was a delight and very attentive. Cocktails were delicious and the food good and plentiful. Had a nice surprise when the two ladies behind us sent over 2 glasses of champagne for our anniversary. Fun , relaxing day!!

A Ventura gem- everything is great on the menu. I always migrate to their baseball cut, teriyaki marinated sirloin or try the scallops with coconut rice.

Simple but excellent wine list, great appetizers and delicious entrees

Plenty of outdoor seating if you’re not comfortable eating inside yet

The 6 of us all enjoyed our meals. We tend to keep it safe and order wine and beer, as everyone has a different idea of what a “good” mixed drink is. The environment is well diverse. You can walk-in with shorts or dress up for a date night and not feel out of place. The prices were very fair, portions were fair, food was fresh. View was nice. It is at the pier, so keep this in mind as far as your surroundings. We will return!

Had a party of 8 and they were nice enough to do separate check for all of us, the food all looked amazing. The Wedges salad and coconut rice is delicious. However My Ribeye was a little dry for me and no marbling, so was disappointed on that part.
