Our dining experience was superb! It was our 40th wedding anniversary and our waiter Bo was outstanding! We will continue to dine at Aloha’s in the future and of course recommend Aloha’s to our friends and family!

Great location and service. The staff makes you feel at home. The interior looks remodeled, cozy and warm but elegant. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Small patio enclosed patio faces ocean so maybe reserve early.

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.

The server Jason is excellent. He makes you feel good about yourself and adds
value to the experience at Aloha. His service was superb, and he now makes us
want to go back to
Aloha.

The problem with the dinner was the appetizers came out too late and the dinner
arrived too soon. This was not Jason's vault, it was the runner of food. Jason was
always attentive and available.

Our server Peter was very attentive to our needs. However, the food serving was very rushed, there was little time between courses to enjoy our drinks and meal. The house special that night was halibut, which was over cooked as was the steak.

This is my favorite place for dinner when I'm in Ventura. I booked a table for six for my son's 35th birthday weeks ago. Unfortunately, there was a large party in the area adjacent to our table that was incredibly loud, extremely intoxicated and dropping the f bomb continuously. Due to us having my two and five year old grandchildren with us, we asked for a different table. We were treated like we had asked for the restaurant to be cleared. We were finally given a hastily pushed together table on the outer patio. It was that or eat in the bar. It was absolutely terrible customer service. There was also a problem with my steak. It was terribly undercooked. When I asked that it be cooked as requested, it came back from the kitchen missing half of the steak and the half that returned still undercooked. I've always loved the restaurant, but they let us down (big time) on a very special day. At least our server was really great and very nice to my grandchildren.

Excellent service, friendly and attentive
Filet and halibut entrees both perfectly done
Seems "cheap" to charge for a salad or soup with entree, esp when not even serving bread or rolls with a meal
