    Usually I would give Aloha Steakhouse a 5 out of 5, not a 4 out of 5. My wife and I both had fish, and while it was good, we thought it was not as good as on previous visits. Also, the Wedge Salad was changed—less lettuce and more other stuff. It was fine, but I thought it was not an improvement. We had a couple of minor service issues this time, as well. Service was slow both on the delivery of our order and on the delivery of our bill. This also had not happened before. Our server was friendly, however.

    Aloha food, service, and the view = fabulous! Black and blue appetizer is delicious. I’ve always enjoyed the food. For the first time, we sat in the room with the windows along the promenade. That was wonderful. We arrived about 30 minutes before sunset and the view was spectacular.

    This place is AMAZING...!! As I have recently moved from Washington, I never really noticed the place, which is nice in some ways but once you're inside there's not a moment wasted from the time you are greeted to the time you are seated. I honestly waited about 15-20 for my appetizers and then about 5 mins for my entree. I ordered the filet mingon crustini, salad for the wife and a Prime Teriyaki Baseball Steak for myself. Aerlume in Seattle is nice and this would honestly be compared to that but located in California. The food is so delicious and The Malibu Third Point hand crafted cocktail is superb. The host and the waitress treated my wife and I exceptionally well. There wasn't a time where my water was empty or other drinks as well. Like most restaurants I've been to I have felt rushed to leave for some reason and this place made us feel welcomed and invited us to stay longer. I don't really like to rate things on a number scale but I would definitely come back for another date night with the wife. It's also family friendly and not loud at all. Without trying to sound disingenuous, I highly RECOMMEND you come here and give it a try. You will absolutely not be disappointed. This is coming from a former active duty Army sergeant so I am extremely picking so this review should reflect a lot. Thanks for reading and hope you all have a nice meal. -Spence

    We came back to Aloha yesterday, 11/18/22, almost a year after Aloha provided our family the most amazing experience for family from all over the U.S. and europe to celebrate moms 90th birthday - yesterday just a few of us met for dinner and to celebrate Mom’s 91st. We cannot say enough about our wonderful experiences last year and this year. Thank you to Jonathan our waiter and Regan the bartender! The party last year was so much work but once we met with Charnell at Aloha all the pieces fell into place - she even helped me figure out invitations, a sign to greet guests at the door and best way to arrange the room. She provided us with perfect options for the DELICIOUS appetizers, entrees, side dishes, vegan options, desserts and beverages. We were quite an enthusiastic group last year and the wait staff was amazingly accommodating, patient and professional. Last night we fell in love with Aloha again- we’ve been here several times before the party last year and always leave happy. The restaurant is beautiful- on the boardwalk in Ventura off California Street and we usually time our reservation to see the sunset over the ocean right outside the window.

    Disappointed. Many times before we have split a steak or prime rib with baked potato and ordered two salads; kitchen or waiter served salads first then divided entree and delivered two equal plates. This time we were given the salads, the entree, and a small plate to split entree ourselves. We felt rushed. New staff is not as well trained as veterans. I indicated birthday on reservation but had to remind waitress. She did bring complimentary dessert and offered photo frame.

    The steak was delicious and our waiter was very attentive.The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is because the restaurant doesn’t have stevia. It was also a bit annoying that the reception desk staff was more interested in their personal conversation than helping guests.

    What a great place for dinner! Everything was excellent. We had the best waiter. The macadamia crusted halibut was amazing, the salmon was great and the filet mignon was excellent, as well. We will definitely be dining there again. It's really good and the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend giving this place a try :)

    Great ambiance. Got the cowboy steak and definitely not worth the price. Spent $200 on a cowboy steak (a lot of fat)… thought we would have leftovers, lobster that was 6-8 bites, and one appetizer. Great place but too expensive for what you get! Blueberry lemonade martini was great

    The service was terrible and we were very much looking forward to dinner as there are so many great reviews. It took about 20 minutes before anyone approached our table. It took another 20 minutes to get our drinks. In the meantime our appetizers came, but we had no plates or silverware so we had to get up from the table to go and request them. My husband’s dinner (a chicken dish) was terribly burned but was still served. We had ordered the dessert soufflé when we placed our dinner order because per the menu they needed additional time to prepare it. It came out with our dinner. The server told us that there had been a lot of mistakes the entire evening. Although they took my husbands dinner off the bill, they left the dessert. We were celebrating our anniversary. Unfortunately, we will not return.

    The food was terrific. Fresh seafood is always a treat and it was prepared with the utmost attention to detail. The staff was highly attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and offered pairing suggestions. Great view, great location. You can wear a suit and tie or Hawaiian shirt and sandals and feel at home. Great dining experience. Truly.

    Food was badly cooked, tuna not seared correctly, vegan burger not fully cooked, lack of seasoning and a poor culinary experience. Cutlery was forgotten and had to ask more than once to receive it. Very expensive for the experience. Overall will not return.

    Overall it was pretty okay. The cocktails were very inconsistent - one Old Fashioned was perfect but another was terrible (muddled orange?). Steaks were good, but the lobster was inedible. We sent it back and later the server came to tell us that the kitchen agreed it was over cooked. They politely took it off our bill. Service was great though. Sadly, I will not likely return.

    We arrived and first placed in a room with a large noisy private party. Snout 30 people. We asked to be moved which they did and we had a nice table. When checking in we told them it was our 55th anniversary, when a manager came over to see if the table was better, we shared that we were so happy to be there as it was our anniversary. We also told our waitress. The calamari was quite cheesy. We ordered a rib eye and loaded potato and ahi dinner and all was good. We also had 4 drinks . We asked for to go boxes as we did have leftovers, and then we were given our bill. No anniversary… We attempted to pay with a visa gift card which they declined and said they don’t accept that form of payment. We often use them and their reason was we might go out and reuse it before they receive credit. We told them they could keep the card after they run it. So we paid with our credit card and just a sad way to end a special day
