    This restaurant used to be top notch but it has gone downhill. For brunch they didn't have decaf coffee. And the service was sub-par. The biscuits were good but the eggs benedict were dry, as if they were sitting under a light for hours as well as the roasted potatoes. We really loved this place, the view of the marina, and the ambiance. But the service has deteriorated and the food, which used to be delicious, is really bad now. (BTW, this is our second time having a bad experience, so we did give them a chance.) I think the new manager does not understand what he has (amazing location, view and ambiance), and how to maximize customers through magnificent food and service.

    Service was a little slow to start….like everywhere. Food is plentiful. Too much. Pork chop dish easily could be shared and should have been said that two large chops are served on a plate. The beet, pear salad is yummy. My second time here. A little chilly on the patio next to the water. There were heat lamps off to the side but no one was using and none was offered. Bring a sweater.

    Great food great service we will be back. We live in Malibu and this restaurant is less than 45 minutes away. Much easier to get to than Santa Monica. The clam chowder was outstanding and our entrees ( filet, sea bass, and short ribs were all excellent. ).

    The food was great and the service too. The view is why we chose the patio there but the railing lessened the view dramatically. If it were my restaurant, I would change the railing to allow for a view of the marina. Overall, we had a great time, minus the view we hoped for.

    The restaurant has been refreshed and the interior is very pleasing. Our server, Jose, was very attentive and we never had to wait for anything. Our only reservation was that the menu was very limited. The wine list was very good, our favorite wine, Orogeny, was served. The Caesar salad was good, the entrees a limited in choices.

    Presentation of this restaurant far exceeds the reality. Beautiful brunch menu does not translate to the table. Food did not taste freshly made but warmed over. Coffee tasted like hot water. Requested sugar and gave me one packet. Lox platter was made with little or no accompaniments as described on menu. Had to ask for cream cheese. Certainly not worth a drive up from LA.

    Decided to try Water's Edge based on location to the Ventura Harbor Village and a search online. It will definitely become a favorite. Can't wait to go back and try some more items, especially all the great sides listed. The food was delicious with a varied menu. Loved the Red & White (Beet) salad. Delicious side of roasted green beans. Garlic Shrimp Fettuccini and Halibut Fish and Chips were our main courses and they were delicious as well. Especially appreciated the friendly and attentive server-even though it was a very busy Father's Day meal. THANK YOU Brandon H.! I was a little worried because of some unfavorable Yelp reviews, however, this was a delicious meal, with a great view and great service. We will definitely go back.

    The dinning atmosphere was lovely, great views of the marina. The food was just okay. The potatoes were salty and over seasoned and the salad was drenched in dressing, so overpowering I couldn’t finish it. And there were supposed to be beets and pears but I only got two colored beets. Service was good.
