We had a great experience. The food was fabulous.
Service was excellent. Steak and appetizers we're good. Potatoes and rice were kind of bland. I have always loved this place. Something was a little different. This has always been my go to place, but my guests thought it was just ok. Maybe it was because it was a Monday, but the food lacked flavor this visit. Hope next visit will be better.
Had a reservation all week, got a call an hour prior to 730 reservation, told to move to 8 which was fine then show up and told to wait two times and until 830-9. They didn’t realize my original time was 730 and I had a reservation all week for the anniversary. Poor planning by them and had to beg for a random table. Service was not great. We had to sit by two big parties who were loud. Ruined our anniversary and won’t return. From Arizona and wanted to experience Ventura. No more.
Good view - good food - pleasant staff
Ventura has been a half-way point for my uncle and me to meet each Spring, always at the Aloha Restaurant. We enjoy the beachside views. The prices are a little high but well within expectations for the view. They do have decent $12.96 value meals for lunch. I ordered teriyaki chicken rice, and salad. My salad was generous and tasty with several ingredients. The chicken and rice were good but not outstanding. My uncle and aunt very much enjoyed their fried "fish and chips".
I very much appreciated the restaurant allowing us to sit for 3 hours while we schmoozed.
My family and I are fans of Aloha Steak House and dine there as frequently as we can. On April 1 we had a reservation for a party of 3 at 1:30 and we thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful mid -afternoon meal in a booth with our Granddaughter. As usual the food was superb and the service was exceptional. At the conclusion of the meal I signed our bill using my Citibank Mastercard for a meal cost of approximately $112 and I added a tip of approx $20. When we arrived home we realized that I had left the receipt and my Citibank card in the name of Donald O. Law clipped inside the serviceperson's folder. I don't ever leave credit card receipts as I did that date. I called Aloha St. Hse that date but was told that the card was not left in the folder. As sure as I was I called a second time and was told that the person taking my call had checked with the Manager and I was again told that my card was not left. This does not change my opinion of the overall quality of Aloha St. Hse nor am I questioning the integrity of your restaurant but I am puzzled. I checked with our Citibank account for purchases that date and our meal at Aloha St. Hse. was the only purchase that we made that date using my Citibank credit card. Also, the amount shown as a charge to Aloha St. Hse on our Citibank card account was for approx $112 but did not include the $20 tip that I left for our serviceperson so we don't know if she received the $20 for her prompt and attentive service. We have had to have new credit cards issued.

We had reservations for Easter lunch. Great service and server was very accommodating on meeting dietary requests. Love this place.
Our waiter Peter was the highlight of our dining experience. Prompt, friendly, personable and anticipated our needs without us asking. :)
LeeAnn was our server and was GREAT! Very attentive to us even though the restaurant was packed with normal reservations and a group of 50 in the front area. Tiffany was our server in the bar earlier and really great as well. My salmon was a bit over cooked but still flavorful. The Kona pie at the end was really tasty. It was a bit on the noisy side but, what place is not these day also, kinda pricey but, it's a special occasion place to me for dinner. Happy Hour and bar is more reasonable. A great time for the four of us.
Once again, Aloha Steakhouse does not disappoint! A variety of meals were ordered at our table and every one was done to perfection. Veggies were tender but crunchy, steaks done just right and the fish was beautiful.
Great dinner with an ocean view! Great service! Teriyaki shrimp and steak medallions are the bomb! Jasmine rice is delish! Tropical ice tea is fresh and tasty!
Great dinner, my Filet Mignon was perfect! Filet was good size and cooked exactly like I wanted.
We had a great birthday celebration dinner, food was amazing, service couldn’t have been better. Our only issue was that it was a little noisy for our preference, but all and all it was an awesome night
During the recent rainy weather in Ventura, we found ourselves in this beach front restaurant. It is arge with many different seating options and an active bar, the décor is colorful, inviting and comfortable. The menu is relatively pedestrian but has the usual options of fish and steaks which tend to be overly sauced or spiced. Service is lackluster but efficient. More enthusiasm or at least the pretense of enjoying working at Aloha would be welcome. I'll try the Mexican restaurant next door during the next storm.
It was ok. We were all set for a nice juicy steak. They don't serve steak for lunch. Stupid. It's a steak house. I got the prime rib sandwich. It was ok.
I just love this place! Everything is always amazing!
Our server was great - attentive and kind. The food was good and the ambiance was nice.
It was my wife and I’s anniversary and we had a wonderful experience and meal. Peter our waiter was awesome and pleasant. It was a great 25 year anniversary dinner. Thank you Aloha Steak House.
We went for a friend's birthday lunch. Our server was very nice, the food good. We will go back.
My girl friend had a Birthday. We had a nice dinner the service was great I will go back again
It was very easy to make reservations on line. Our table was waiting for us when we got there. Our server, Justin was fabulous! Very engaging, he paid attention to everyone at our table, especially our little 3 year old grandson. Food came soon after drinks, which was great, we were all very hungry. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. A very nice birthday sweet treat came in the end that was shared by all of us. A perfect evening!
We were trying to find some place different to go this year to celebrate Valentines Day and my husbands bday with sister and husband. I came up with Aloha Steakhouse and they all loved it. We will definitely be back. We got a seat by the window as requested and watched the people on the boardwalk and the ocean as the sun set. Service was great and food was wonderful. A good time had by all!
Sat us outside and when asking to sit inside after not being asked for our order after 40 minutes of waiting, their reply was "we can offer you a blanket" (due to cold weather, while inside was 2/3's empty). Then overheard hostess mentioning our complaints to coworker's jokingly
Awesome night!! Good food, excellent service, great drinks.
Delicious food from appetizers to dinner to dessert. We had great service too! The view of the sun setting adds to the experience if you can get a table by the window.
the waitstaff must have been extremely over tasked because it took over an hour to get our food. we waited long periods of time between interactions with the wait staff. we placed our drink orders with one guy who took a long time just to bring waters, iced tea, and two glasses of wine, and then we never saw him again. the food was also glaringly mediocre. the burger bun was dry and fell apart and the burger had no flavor. the view is about the only thing this place has going for it.
Excellent service from the moment we walked into the doors. The hostess was amazing! Our table server was great! Food was phenomenal! Perfect all around!
Thank you for a great first time experience!
Great dinner & service with friends
We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly. The service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our Valentines Day dinner. We look forward to our next visit. This restaurant was awarded Ventura Chamber of Commerce Mid-Sized business of the year and it was easy to see why.
Our server, Peter, really made our visit to Aloha Steakhouse a special one. Yes, the food was good (the crab and lobster were a bit meh, but the coconut shrimp, fish & chips, and prime rib were fantastic) and the drinks excellent, but the extra attention to detail and personalized service he offered really went above and beyond! There were several LARGE groups in house this evening, and yet, we were always well-taken-care-of. I would highly recommend, and look forward to revisiting myself the next time I'm in Ventura for a special occasion.
Very nice dining experience. Beautiful restaurant with a fantastic sunset ocean view. Excellent service by Jason. Enjoyed my grilled sea bass, hubby had the ribeye and liked it as well. They gave a complimentary slice of macadamia nut ice cream pie for my b-day.
They also have a very nice happy hour. Highly recommend Aloha!
Outstanding Oceanview, Super Service, Fair Food, Extremely Expensive, Horrendous Hostess
Aloha is located between a 3 story parking garage and 12 story hotel right on the ‘boardwalk’ at Ventura Beach. Its main attraction is the ocean. Our server was excellent and attentive to our needs. My wife and I shared an appetizer of Thai Mussels (the coconut sauce was so salty we could not eat it) and each had Spicy Ahi Tuna (spicy it was not; tasteless it was, so, again, we ate but half). Over $50 per person (tip and tax included, but no drinks, no dessert). We would not return because of the incredibly unprofessional hostess (so as not to impugn anyone else who works at Aloha in that capacity, this was Saturday evening, February 3).
We live in LA and our son lives in Ventura. He has a busy work schedule so trying to visit for lunch or dinner can be a challenge at times. We have come to really love the Aloha Steak House due to it's convenience for our son, wonderful seaside setting (you get out of your car and the ocean smell that we love is immediate), great food, excellent service and not too costly.
Plus we also know to get there a little early to walk along the seaside promenade that is adjacent to the restaurant. Parking is validated. All in all makes for a great experience and worth the drive. Have been there for both lunch and dinner and the quality never wavers. Will definitely return.
Wonderful dinner. Salmon was delicious. Service was wonderful and on top that the wonderful sunset view we had over the water was gorgeous.
Very good steak and lobster. Great martinis. Service was very friendly but slow. Had to request things multiple times.
Everything was great except for a table of 8 that completely blew out the decibel level. Their table was in the center of the room and every other table in there couldn’t have a decent conversation. Pitiful for an upscale restaurant
Great quality on food. The service from the staff was really good too. The steaks are hard to beat. Probably best steak house in Ventura area.
It was my daughters 27th bday, we had a great meal, and service was great. Perfect night out.
We had reserved our table online the day before and got there 30 minutes early and our table was available to us still. We got attended to right away and staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.
A great time to go early on Sunday, off season, you'll get seating at the boardwalk windows. We had a very good time and enjoyed some equally good food. Wait time was minimal and service was excellent. I can recommend the macadamia crusted white roughy, moist and delicious. Enjoy!
