Restaurant has great food wait staff awesome.
Last night was crowded felt like tables were too close for current pandemic status.
Had let them know through your app that it was a birthday and asked to sit near fire.
Both things were ignored. Asked hostess she totally brushed me off.
Then our waiter came and he’s excellent at his job took great care of us.
I will go again I love the restaurant and food. Sorry that the hostess wasn’t very professional.

Great find! Thank you Open Table. We reserved a space for 2. The place filled up fast. We would go back again for sure. Service great, food was great. We shared the house specials. 1 seafood plate and 1 steak. Perfectly cooked.

Went early for happy hour and would have dinner later there, but the happy hour menu was so good that we ate those. The flat bread of the day was very yummy.

I wish I could give this place more stars because atmosphere, food and service were all top-notch. We will absolutely be coming back!!!

We ordered:
Orange Jalapeño Margarita - perfect balance of fresh orange juice and a little spice! Order with a Tajin rim, you won’t regret it!!

Queso Fundido - super creamy and cheesy, a little salty and a teeny tiny kick of spice from the poblano. Perfect size for sharing!

Caribbean Fish Stew - fresh and light but still filling (perfect for date night when you don’t want to be too full 😉) The seafood was cooked perfectly.

Steak special - cooked perfectly to medium (what we ordered). Super tender and juicy.

Rum fish y Vino never disappoints!! We were seated right at our reservation time! We were quickly greeted by a lovely young lady (I’m sorry but i can’t remember her name) but she was amazing! Never had an empty cup and our food was delicious and fresh as it always is! This is definitely one of our go to restaurants.

The ambience is wonderful here. Beautiful and large outdoor patio, lots of space between tables and a roaring fireplace.
The Seabass was delicious and a generous portion.

Rumfish y Vno is our favorite restaurant in Ventura. The outdoor courtyard is gorgeous, the food is fabulous and the service is great. It doesn't get any better than this.

Rumfish is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I moved out of Ventura a while ago, and when I came back to visit family, I stumbled upon the great outdoor ambiance of the Rumfish Patio. Even during Covid, the outdoor space is top-notch, and the mixed drinks alongside the queso fundido will make you forget your living in a pandemic world. Tip the staff well! I can't thank them enough for continuing to deliver an enjoyable experience in these hectic times. Y'all are the REAL MVP's

The best outdoor dining in Ventura. The patio is big and beautiful, and perfect for a socially distant dinner that’s not in the street. The food is very good and the chefs always seem very accommodating to modifications.

I never write reviews. Ever. Like this might be my first. Finding outdoor dining that doesn’t feel like you’re at a wedding reception has been difficult lately. Rumfish has one of the nicest dining areas inside or out of any restaurant that I’ve been to. The food was amazing. The staff was friendly. The drinks were great. And the price was totally reasonable. I really lucked out finding Rumfish. Will definitely be back.

Rumfish has delicious appetizers and food. But worth the above average price points for the menu items and drinks.

Cheeseburger for our son overcooked. We were not asked how we wanted it cooked. The Mayan Vegan was way too salty. The Braised Beef Lasagna was very good.

Waiter seemed a bit overloaded with tables. Took a long while to get a drink order in at the start.
