Terrific food and service with a view of the beach and ocean.
Did not recognize our anniversary. Service very slow. Steak overcooked. Server did compensate by not charging for steak and comping desert.
Awesome! That's the word that best describes Sea Venture. Everything was perfect. Our waiter Chris was the best, very attentive,but not intrusive. We had filet and lobster, the best ever. We will definitely be back to dine. Great job Sea Venture!!
Always great brunch.. excellent food, bottomless mimosas .. 10/10
A date for my husband and I.
The view was nice. We ordered the couples steak and lobster. It was good.
Very, very disappointed. First dined here about 5 years ago and it was great. Not this time around. Taste was bland and prices were high.
Put the vegetarian risotto option on the menu. Have another vegetarian option.
View is spectacular when sitting on their terrace. We received some of the best service I’ve ever had from a restaurant. Food was a mix - my husband loved his dish, my seafood pot pie needed more seafood. Overall, we would definitely come back.
Amazing experience and would definitely recommend
Great views, food and service. Would definitely go back
The food was excellent and the prices reasonable. Chris is a very attentive server. A true professional. Will definitely recommend to friends.
The food and service were very good. The seating was odd. I had a 6:15 reservation. Arrived on time. Rather than being seated in the main restaurant, we were seated in a banquet room with a table of 12 people. So just my table for two and a table of 12. The main restaurant had open tables. The table of 12 were talking and laughing loudly. It was annoying. There was no good reason for us to be seated in a banquet room when there were open tables in the restaurant. Later that evening I received an email from Open Table, where I made the reservation stating the restaurant reported me as a no show. I was not a no show just relegated to the banquet room. Not sure what the problem is but the restaurant may want to have someone at the front desk who knows what they are doing.
While the restaurant does not look upscale, the food is delicious and plentiful! We enjoyed the Oysters Rockefeller ( a true gem), the beet salad, the salmon, the Vol Au Vent, and for dessert the chocolate lava cake. All were fabulous! We will definitely go back again the next time we are in Pismo Beach!
Great view, fantastic food, phenomenal service!
Love the coconut shrimp tacos. The view is amazing.
Our wait staff was superb, the food was outstanding as was the ocean view. It has a very old but elegant (from the 50's or 60's) ambiance. My only disappointment is that the interior looks a bit tired, which is understandable considering the pandemic. I'm sure the funds it would take to update the inside are lacking at this time. I would have loved to have seen white tablecloths and new upholstery on the booths. The bar area could use an updating as well. It would not stop us from returning. All in all a very nice restaurant. Glad to see it is still here. My concern is how it will compete with the newer beach restaurants in the area.
The food is consistently good. The terrace has a lovely view and the staff is always friendly.
Great food, good service, noise level was a little higher than I enjoyed while dining inside just because of the acoustics of the restaurant, but realistically don’t want to say anything bad about the establishment. Best meal I’ve had in a while you pay for it but it is exceptional.
We loved the appetizers. Sitting outside offered great views and a quiet ambience. Service was friendly and very accommodating.
Great place great food
Great food. Server was super professional, not that knowledgeable and terribly slow (waited far too long for second drink after requesting twice!)
My wife and I love the Sunday brunch, Great Irish Coffee and a special on bloody Marys!
Staff is friendly and accommodating, we have fun when dining at the Sea Venture
The presentation and temperature of the food was ok. A petit filet mignon on a chipped plate and five speaks of asparagus on another. Looked like no effort to present it nicely. Bert salad was very good. Loved the location but expected a little more with the food. Wait staff was ok but didn’t make an effort to make it special. Still tipped at 20% but it could have been much better.
Food was below expectations- which were low to begin with
Excellent food and service. We tried about a month ago and had to come back and it was another great experience. Will certainly return in the future.
Food and service was enjoyable. Our waiter, Chris was great. Beautiful sunset view.
Amazing views usually means "just good enough" food and service. Not here, all around great experience after a long day of travel. We will be back
Celebrating my birthday. Had an amazing meal in a beautiful location :)
Lovely ocean view! Fantastic service & delicious food.
It was our first time at Sea Venture Restaurant and we were very happy with our choice. Great food and service.
The service was excellent. The waiters never missed a beat and we never had to wait long for a drink. The food was meh. Over priced for a steak that was over cooked on the outside and ok in the middle. Baked potato just look like a glob of a mess. The calamari rings were exceptional but the tentacles were chewy and inedible. I would probably only go back for apps and drinks and a great view.
The food was really good!! We had the lobster and mignon plus the desserts.Staff was friendly and attentive.
The Australian Sea Bass was cooked perfectly for me. They were very flexible and allowed me to substitute mashed potatoes instead of the cauliflower puree. We had a beautiful view of the beach. Overall it was a very enjoyable meal and good atmosphere.
Chris was a great and we really enjoyed the view with our delicious meal
This is our special occasion restaurant, and we have never been disappointed! The food the drinks the service. Perfect!
Nice place. We went around sunset and the view was very nice. Waiter was attentive and very friendly. Inside is getting a little dated but overall very nice experience and I would go back again.
It was absolutely wonderful. Great service, food, and ambiance! Will definitely be back again!
Awesome meal and incredible service. Our waiter Chris did an outstanding job. Some of the best service my wife and I have ever experienced.
Food was excellent. We went with appetizers, entrees and dessert and all were delicious! Service was great as well. Chris was our server and was very polite and on top of things.
