Food was very good both in taste and value. The decor was mediocre and the noise level was high however the food was made up for it all.
We were celebrating my mother’s 70th birthday and everything was excellent. Chris provides great service, the food and beverage were delicious and the table setting and view exceptional. It’s our favorite celebration location to date. Thank you and we look forward to our next experience.
The food, service and ambiance were “fine” - not bad but not especially memorable. The filet mignon was slightly overcooked and the salad dressing was too sweet and excessive. The wait staff was receptive to the feedback and overall, the staff was welcoming. Reminder to those going for the ocean view to book during daylight hours.
Great sunset view! Service prompt, helpful. Food pairing fun, good!
We enjoyed a Belated Christmas and New Year Celebration. Colton was our server and he was excellent as always.
This is in my top 5 restaurants in the county. Never disappoints.
Bummed about this as I made reservations with this place because of great reviews. We waited over 15 min upon arrival to even be seen by a host to be seated. Once seated and food was ordered we waited over 20 min for any food at all to be served and 15-20 in between each course. Food was mediocre and some inedible. Server announced that we weren’t receiving the wine pairings that were supposed to come with the 3 course chefs choice offered in the menu because “they were still unsure how to do it.” Brought all 3 wine glasses with the last course...while I recognize we weren’t at the Beverly Hills, hotel this whole evening was an expensive waste of time. Took over 2 hours for a basic dinner. We were just trying to have a nice family dinner..
New Years Celebration
This is the third time we have gone to the sea venture for New Years. We don’t plan on coming back. Service was really slow, not as personal as it used to be. The food choice was not great.Also there was no choices of wine!
They need to make some changes, even the small plates in the bar are not very good, And not a good variety.
Celebrating birthday and New Years! Food, ambience and service was top notch.
Always a beautiful setting with delicious food & drinks. Good for a special occasion or a regular evening.
Sea venture no longer has the chocolate fondue dessert and this is the only reason why I would come to this restaurant it was so delicious .Waitress wasn’t very friendly and took a long time to bring items and her visits to the table we’re few and far between . The dessert we did get similar to a beignet wasn’t good :/
We were visiting the Pismo Beach area and this restaurant was recommended by friends. Excellent service from a very cheerful waiter. My steak was delicious and so was the apple tart. We were there at night but the room faces the water so it must have a good view in the daytime. :-) It's very near the pier for a nice after-dinner stroll.
Everything BUT the food was great. Food tasted very average. The service and atmosphere was excellent.
Though we love the Sea Venture for Happy Hour, our experience at dinner was disappointing. Due to the fact that they have two kitchens, everyone's food did not come out at the same time. The skin on the duck breast was so tough it was impossible to chew. And the scallops were barely warm. The best entre was the warm shrimp salad. Also the deviled egg appetizer was very good,
Prefix menu for Christmas dinner had nice options. The Turkey Potpie, Kale Gem salad appetizers were outstanding. Leek and Sweet Potato Bisque soup was a little bland. Popped it up with a little salt. Entree descriptions sounded much better than the what was experienced. Scallops and Ham had great ingredients but were missing something to bring it all together. Service was outstanding.
Christmas special - Duck was under cooked and Luke warm at best, barely tolerable. The desert was no good. The waiter was good until he brought the check and loudly ask to see my ID verify my credit card I thought this was rather tacky and I didn't notice him ask anyone else for their ID. Not an enjoyable experience I won't be going back.
Excellent creative dishes pared with excellent service and a terrific view of the ocean.
SeaVenture does it up RIGHT! Christmas Dinner was interesting, inventive, and very good (for the most part). Our party of four was seated right where we wanted to be for an early Christmas dinner, and everything was quite tasty. I do think that they do big events/holiday meals with a great deal of elan. We have also been there for Easter Brunch, so know and enjoy this venue.
This has always been an excellent Restaurant. It was not on Christmas Eve. I ordered Prime Rib. It was ok. My niece ordered Nw York med. it came rare so I traded with her. The New York steak was very rare and just ok. It was presented in a small skillet on top of what they called succotash which was a tablespoon of corn, broccoli and about 1/4 cup of onions. That was it...a New York steak on onions. You had to take the steak out of the skillet and cut it in a plastic tray. There were four of us and we all agreed it just was not up to it’s usual great food. I called the manager when I got home and he apologized and said we just can’t please all the people all the time and offered us a free drink when we returned. We don’t drink. I won’t be back to to drop $200. in hopes the meals are better and get a free drink. Very disappointed.
We always love to go to the sea venture for special occasions...love the view and ambience. Several people in our party of 7 ordered the special of the evening, sea bass, which was served on a bed of rice which tasted odd. No one liked the flavor of the rice. I had the salmon whic is always delicious. Service was excellent.
Service is always spot on n quick! Very friendly staff and amazing food! Can never go wrong with dining here!
We stayed next door at the Sandcastle and the receptionist recommended this restaurant. It did not disappoint. I had the scallops and he had the steak, our own surf n turf. The pesto sauce on the scallops was phenomenal!!! And Chris our server was awesome!!! We wish we lived closer to go back again, but if our journeys take us back to Central Cali, we will def be heading back.
A neighborhood gem. 5 stars for food,service attention to detail. A great value right on the beach at Pismo Beach, CA
Have been going here for the wife’s birthday for the last couple of years and it’s always been exceptional. I tried the pork chops this year and they were fantastic! The wife loves their Vol-En-Vent. Highly recommend the Sea Venture for all you dinner party needs.
Had a group of 4. Great table by the window and Chris was a so nice as he gave us options for dinner and always came to our table to check on us at the right time.
You can't beat the ambiance and setting. In addition, we have been coming here for years and the service and waitstaff have always been top notch. Polite, friendly and attentive. Tyler is our new favorite and lends a personal touch to every visit. I had the Sea Venture, a fish combo plate over rice with a savory red sauce, my wife had the filet and my daughter a salad and appetizer plate, coconut shrimp. Everything was excellent, perfectly prepared with a lovely presentation. As a side note, if you ever want to get a top quality view of nighttime Vandenberg rocket launches, this is your place
My boyfriend and I went to the Sea Venture for a seaside dinner before we flew back home to the UK. Our server, Chris, was beyond helpful and very good at bringing out the meals so that we never felt like we were sitting around and waiting to get the next course. The food and drinks were spectacular and the price was very fair. I would definitely return here and recommend it highly.
Would definitely return...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Love the view, service and food. The staff goes out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and appreciated. We will definitely be back.
Great experience. Great ambiance. Servers polite, friendly and helpful. Food was nice and presentation appealing. Would do the Thanksgiving there again.
Exceeded our expectations for a Thanksgiving meal. Wonderful food and service. Will definitely return.
Service was slow, but food was great.
A great experience...as always. I know the service will be outstanding and the cuisine fantastic every time! The ocean view is spectacular...we dine regularly here as it is definitely one of our top three restaurants in the area
Always good place for a dinner with good atmosphere and quality and great sunsets.
Great food, service, view, cocktails. Special occasion and loved it!
The waiter was very good but literally single handedly serving the entire restaurant it seemed . Food was not as hot as it could have been . We ordered dessert and it was a lukewarm cobbler. We will try it again but I think it was a problem with being short handed . Also waiter never offered bread although it was served with the salad at an adjacent table . Waiter also seemed extremely rushed and hardly returned to the table
Always find this establishment one of the best on the Central Coast. Food is very tasty and service good.
We celebrate my BD most every yr as have a value coupon that applies. Have had excellent service many occasions but this yr was not as exceptional. Server did a good job but must have gotten busy as she did not check in on us for a lengthy time. We had to ask other help to assist us for ice and water.
It's a great venue on Wednesday's for live music that you cannot hear just any where really enjoy 3 Martini Lunch
Enjoyed our dinner, the sunset excellent and friendly service.
We'll be back!
