Our group of 4 were delighted by our first dining experience at Rhumb Line. We will definitely go back soon to partake of it's abundant happy-hour menu.

Hard to find, but worth the effort. We had the Poke Tuna (delicious), Lobster Mac n Cheese (so yummy), and Sand Dab Filet (the best lemon sauce). The bar overlooks the dining room which increases the noise level. Nice harbor view. A hidden gem.

We were here for the Thanksgiving set menu, but they had 2 choices for appetizers and 3 choices for dinner and 2 choices for dessert. They handled the crowd very well and our server, Heather, was exceptional. We had brought our own bottle of champagne and she showed up at the table with flutes and an ice bucket before she even said “hello”. Everything was handled better than any other restaurant that we have attended for a holiday dinner and the food was delicious and hot.

This place might be good on an average day, but I don’t recommend it for thanksgiving dinner. They were totally overwhelmed. An hour and a half past our reservation time and we still didn’t have the first course. Food ended up being pretty good, but way overpriced for what you get. Servers and hostess were doing their best with a frantic manager. Not a good experience and we paid through the nose. Maybe on a date without kids on a non-holiday I would have a different story to tell.

Overall the food was good however one person in our party ordered a hamburger medium and it was raw the person didn't want to say anything I felt bad because it was the Limited Thanksgiving Day menu and I wanted everybody to have a pleasant experience, very scenic somewhat pricey $260 for 7 people and a $30 bottle of wine

My go-to for dining experience and VIEW. Staff superior from the moment I open the door. Managers always quietly observant. Food is everything I want in a fine dining experience and I hosted two groups last week. No one was disappointed. I see young people enjoying the beautiful bar area and the outside (there’s shade) dining options. I’ve been frequenting this building throughout the last 50 years and about the same number of operators. This is the very best and I think a wonderful combination of professional/continental management style and SoCal ambience. And the chef/menu...omg.

A little noisy at first but they moved us to a table away from the bar and that was much better. The service and the view were very nice. The food was cooked properly with respect for the ingredients and was well-presented. I felt it could have been seasoned more thoughtfully to bring out the underlying flavors. Quite expensive but good for special occasions.

This place has a fabulous setting right on the harbor and a menu that gives plenty of choices. The service was excellent and the chef’s appetizers of bruschetta a nice touch. I would call the food above average, but not top notch...however, very good value as the prices were not at the top either. We will return here for before theatre dining again.

My friends and I came for brunch after staying in Santa Barbara for a weekend wine tour. Our server, who was also the bartender that day was very nice. My buddy and I had the crab cake benedict which was delicious and the perfect amount of food. His wife had the breakfast burrito and it was quite large and filling. Overall, we were really happy with the experience and would gladly go to Rhumb Line again.

While the view of the Harbor is nice and the restaurant is beautiful, the food was awful for brunch. Omelette with tons of raw onion in large 1 inch chunks. The crab cakes eggs benidict was stale and overly fried served with cold bland potatoes. Service was also disappointing.

2 of us dined for Sunday brunch. Competition with families of 4, 6. 8. 10.
Did get seated in a corner with reduced noise, but then had bar patrons...
Service OK knowing about other large parties.
Food was well done and hot when served.

Still recommend this restaurant and will return.

This was just a perfect place to take someone for a celebration lunch with a beautiful view of Ventura Harbor. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful and numerous times checked on us asked us if we needed anything and wished my friend a happy birthday many times. I will definately come back here and try it for dinner.

Had a working dinner here, arrived about 5 30pm on Wednesday and after being seated waterfront, were thrilled to find out it was Wine Wednesday. This meant a wonderful special for 2 that includes a bottle of wine. We choose a bottle of Cabernet and then had a lovely dinner. I will definatley be going back.

Took my wife here for our 30th anniversary. I had called and made reservations and let them know we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. When we arrived there was a Happy Anniversary balloon at our table and we sat next to the window overlooking the bay. It was a beautiful evening and the windows were open. As the night progressed the staff made sure to close the windows without us asking. Dinner was fantastic and we meant to take photos but the food was so scrumptious when it arrived we dug in. Then we looked at one another and said we forget to take a photo! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly. she surprised us with a complementary dessert that was to die for! The cheesecake was light/fluffy and delicious. We are 2 1/2 hours away from this restaurant but we will come back again and spend the night ust to eat at Rhumb Line.

What a wonderful surprise Rhumb Line was! None of our group had ever been there, and had never heard of it. I found it on line, I liked the reviews and the location so decided to give it a try. We were celebrating two birthdays. I had left a note on Open Table stating that we were celebrating birthdays, but so far no restaurant has ever recognized that. Well, Rhumb Line did. They brought a balloon to the table, and the birthday dessert was outstanding, and very generous. All of our food was delicious, and the drinks were great. The restaurant is so open with windows and the view is great. We will definitely be back.

We have been many times and enjoyed every time until this one. It was a totally off night for them I think. The waiter (female) was not very attentive once she took our order, it took several requests to get ice for our water. We waited over 40 minutes between appetizers, salads for our main course and unfortunately when we finally received it two of the salmon dishes were cold and a funny consistency (one person returned theirs not to be returned), the lamb chops were undercooked (returned and cooked longer) and a chicken parm was burnt on the bottom (sent back not to be returned). There were many tables turned over while we waited for our entree. It was not a good experience. I will say the Manager tried very hard to make the 2 people with the unsatisfactory meals happy, he gets an E+ for effort. In the end they took off both returned entrees and gave us a 25% discount, which the waiter announced to us rather snippently which didn't sit well with one person and (gasp) I found out later he did not leave a tip. The other person splitting the bill did leave a 14% tip but he too was not happy with the waiter.

I felt horrible because we were guests of the other 2 couples and recommended Rhumb Line because we have been many times and had GREAT experiences. I want to think this was a VERY off night. We will try again and hope we both start with a clean slate.

We stopped in Ventura on our way to a wedding in pismo beach and Rhumb Line seemed favorably reviewed on OT. It was wonderful. We had the Wednesday Wine special. A bottle of wine, two salads, two amazing entrees (a medley of filet mignon, yellowtail tuba, mushroom risotto, fingerling potato and spinach),and an apple crisp all for the amazing price of $60.

Even the potatoes that came with it were good and different from the norm. We just weren't in the mood to wait somewhere for 45 - 60 minutes! We've also dined here many times.
