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

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.

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.

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

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!

This was our first time dining at Aloha Steakhouse. We have friends who have recommended the restaurant and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed the food and the service. Our server gave us just the right amount of attentiveness. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the wine list was very robust. We will definitely return.

We'd never been to the restaurant, but decided to try it out for my birthday. It was a great choice. Our server was outstanding, the food was so good, and the ambiance was just right (busy but not crazy, perfect noise level). I'd recommend the wedge salad and the lobster tail!

Food was mediocre but tolerable however, the waiter we had clearly exhibited poor customer service. He was very argumentative, almost in a threatening way. We ended up asking to speak w/ the shift manager. We told Ryan the manager, we were there to eat and enjoy our weekend and not for Calvin to argue and scold us!

Peter the waiter is outstanding he has excellent knowledge of the menu, very knowledgeable of the various Waze our dishes could be prepared, and an outstanding knowledge of the wine list and recommendations hats off the Aloha Steakhouse once again.
