Nice place, a bit noisy but fun. The food was very good except I was disappointed in the beet salad. Just a few bland beets and a lot of arugula. The Zinfandel was excellent.

This is my favorite restaurant in Ventura! Not only is the food fantastic but the ambiance adds that much more to the overall experience. With COVID, they have had to extend their outdoor seating out and the last few times we have eaten there, we have been seated in the courtyard. Nothing against the courtyard but the pergola IS the ambiance. This last time we were seated under the pergola and we felt at home again.

The fish spread appetizer was not tasty at all. Very dry. Maybe offer queso fundido for lunch?

This was our first time here and we absolutely loved it. EVERYTHING was delicious. We ordered the conch fritters, pork belly taco, shrimp tostadas for small plates. For entrees we ordered the seabass and the halibut. Absolutely delicious.

Best service every time! Robert makes the Rumfish experience classy and worth coming back for. He makes great recommendations and is a true professional. Not only is Rumfish our local night-out favorite, but every time we have visitors from out of town we take them there to enjoy everything we rave about.

I love Rumfish y Vino’s food and outdoor courtyard. It’s my favorite place for a Sunday brunch any time of year. The food is always excitingly different and delicious plus the staff is consistently charming! I never feel rushed and leave with a smile. A standout in Ventura for sure!

This was our first time back since the pandemic. It was a celebration of being fully vaxed and able to go out again. Nothing disappointed. The food, the cocktails, all of it was perfect. They were super busy and seemed like they could use an extra hand, but we had a great time and can’t wait to go back again.

Absolutely delicious, great service and great ambience. Started with the mussels which were great. He had the fish stew and I had the Seabass. Mine was better but both were delicious. Good sized servings as well. There was a wait on a Saturday, would definitely recommend reservations.

We were before the Opera in Ventura at the drive in theatre so we were on a timeline. That said, our fab waiter was spot on woth when he said our order would be ready. I especially liked the halibut special which he also recommended. We all felt we would go back.

I was pleasantly surprised just wanted to get out of Santa Barbara try something new. The staff was all friendly and had personality. The music was a little loud but I was with my older mother so I was probably more in tune with it. The food was great and the wine was cheap although I had a splitting headache the next day but really good value for the money good food friendly staff and free parking on the other side of the restaurant versus street parking

Loved eating at Rumfish y Vino after having been to their sister restaurant in Belize. The food was delicious and loved sitting out on the patio. The space heaters weren’t very warm, but we survived. Our food server, Kelly, was excellent! Highly recommend this place. The sea bass with coconut rice was superb!

My wife and I were running late to our reservation so we called to inform the front desk and they said not a problem at all. When we got there they were able to quickly find us another seat option and the experience was amazing. The food is great and the cocktails are delicious. Definitely recommend!

We came to Rumfish for a date night and we loved it. The ambiance was perfect and very romantic. Very open indoor seating so you don’t feel restricted to the inside and the outside seating is beautiful and has plenty of heaters to go around. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Had great suggestions and made our experience very enjoyable. Lastly the food and drinks were amazing! We got the Conch Fritters, Creole Seabass, and the fish tacos. All were amazing dishes. We very excited to venture out on some of the other items on the menu next time. Overall it was an amazing dinner/evening spend at Rumfish. Highly recommended for the couple on a date night, or just a night out with friends for some adult time.
