Always the absolute best service and food of any restaurant in Ventura in my opinion. Anytime my husband and I get the chance to go out, this is our chosen spot because we always know we can expect excellent service and delicious food and drinks!

We had a wonderful time at what has become one of my favorite places to celebrate! The food never disappoints, the staff are so friendly and the patio is warm and inviting! This is one of Ventura’s hidden gems!

It was the best experience I have ever had. This is pre-Covid and even better after Covid. They are so clean and disinfect everything. I totally recommend this place. Best ever and the food was amazing

I've been to here numerous times, And everything is always awesome. The only thing I miss is having a good espresso after dinner as they don't have an espresso machine. Everything else is perfect.

Open Table sent confirmation and reminder for my reservation. I asked for a table on the patio in the shade and could not have been happier. The restaurant and patio are elegantly decorated for the holidays. Lovely! The four of us have different dishes and everyone was pleased. The breakfast burrito was so yummy and different topped with pork chili verde, the Waygu Burger and fries was perfectly cooked medium served with addicting crunchy fries and the Poached egg arugula salad with grilled chicken was fresh with a lovely presentation. Our fourth had salmon and avocado toast with fruit bowl - perfect for her limited appetite. This was from the Brunch menu. I know they also have delicious meals from the regular menu.

The outside patio is beautiful and peaceful. While it had a nice vibe it also felt private. We were seated next to the very soothing outdoor fireplace. The food and drinks were delicious and the service was outstanding.

Rumfish is my favorite Ventura Restaurant. My husband and I love vacationing in the Caribbean, and the conch fritters at Rumfish are among the best we’ve had anywhere! We each had the risotto with halibut special tonight, and it was out of this world delicious!

Delicious flavor combinations. Service was fantastic. Seated under heaters in the patio. Although it’s during pandemic times it was a relief to find a restaurant with a patio and not a plastic tent.

A fine place to go when you can eat outside on a large patio. I like the sea bass and the conch fritters, with a delicious coconut bread pudding for dessert. Excellent service on our visit.
