I was very disappointed with the food. I ordered the seafood pasta that had 3 scallops, 3 shrimp and very tough calamari with very little taste. When I made the reservation, the menu appeared to be Italian, but it was more Greek. I asked for bread and got another type of texture that was definitely not bread, with a yogurt dip. My husband ordered the chicken marsala - the chicken was smothered in a sauce (not marsala) and had no taste either. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone that was wanting Italian food.
We went for Mothers Day dinner. Had reservations but had to wait 30 minutes for a table. They apoligized. The food was very good. Service was good too. Nice view of the harbor.
We had a lovely brunch . Receiving our food took some time and it didn't all come at the same time.. overall very nice.
The food was bland.
My boyfriend and I stopped for dinner before a movie. We let our server know of our time constraint and she did an excellent job of ensuring we were done and out when we needed to be.
The food was very good and we both liked what we had - he had the lobster tail special and I had the salmon fresco.
Fresco 2 is one of our favorites on the marina for good food and fun music, and the fact that it is a family run business. One of the Chef's in the kitchen is sure to be family, and, likely to come out and visit your table! We love spicy food and especially enjoy the crispy Jalapeno rings that accompany many of their dishes, but, I think that it is worth mentioning that this restaurant has many Gluten Free dishes to choose from.
Excellent in every way. Great food, great service, great ambiance and reasonable prices. Highly recommend
We were looking for a casual, classy restaurant the whole family could enjoy in Ventura county and came across Fresco II on the Marina. The food was unique, flavorful and reasonably priced. While they weren't that busy the service was quick, friendly, and efficient. The live entertainment was an enjoyable added touch.
Overall the food, service, drink and live entertainment were diverse enough to satisfy a wide age and palate range.
We had brunch with two friends -- four people in all. Although the restaurant wasn't busy at all, our server was indifferent. We asked for light dressing on a chopped salad, and there was a pool of dressing at the bottom of the dish. The salad was soggy - we told the waiter, he shrugged and said he was sorry but didn't take it off the bill. The pizza was greasy and burned around the edges. The dough was tough and chewy. Our friends gyro sandwiches were in the OK range -- but the fries were not hot or crispy.
We were seated at a nice window booth adjacent to the bar. The football game was on and the volume was way too loud. Also, the bar patrons were as loud as they would be if they attended the game. In a sports bar, I'd expect this -- but this is not what Fresco purports itself to be.
A disappointing experience on almost all counts. It's a shame, because it's in walking distance from our home.
Left very happy with things....dinner choices were GREAT!!!
Service was above average.....
We arrived early so we went to the bar and had cocktails and the bartender was excellent Once we where seated the waiter was Pleasant but he never came around to see if we need anything. I had to go to the front desk and ask for my bill. The funniest And sad thing was our waiter and others were all Up front talking.
We arrived wit a 7:00 reservation and asked for a table outside. The hostess said ok, but we just need to set up a table. 20 minutes later, still no table, the waiter had just got to work and was not ready. All the hostess needed to do was say it will be about 20 minutes and we would have waited at the bar. We did get a great table outside with a very good waiter. The food was surprisingly good, I had a wonderful salmon and my husband the steak kabobs, both really good and an amazing cheesy garlic bread.
Will go back and try again.
Enjoyed a salad and soup lunch. The service was pleasant and the food was good quality and generous.
Great place to have a meal!!!
Great for brunch and dinner-Beautiful view of the Oxnard Harbor. Variety on menu. Salads could be a meal in itself and portions are large.
