We had a very enjoyable dinner. Food was very good. Servers were very professional and pleasant. 4 stars for service because water glasses were on empty for awhile and we had to ask for a refill , but lovely evening overall.

We had a great dinner at the seaventure to celebrate my daughter‘s 23rd birthday. The outdoor dining patio is not large so you definitely need reservations. Overlooks the beach and has great view. We had scallops appetizer which was very tasty. My husband and I had the couples filet and lobster for $80 and both felt this was a really good price for the quality of food. Meat cooked perfectly as requested and was tender with a great sauce. Very casual set up and glad we did not dress up.

The food an atmosphere was amazing, with the current orders in place there was only seating on the patio which isn't very large, but the staff was wonderful. We can't wait to come back again, there were no complaints at all.

We had a wonderful evening and dinner. The review for ambience was difficult...with Covid restrictions, good ambience is lost, but Sea Venture did their best and there was at least some. They followed all of the rules, masks, etc. Sea Venture has always been one of my favorite restaurants and it did not disappoint on this visit. There is a view from every table. We chose a booth for comfort. There is a more cozy atmosphere, conducive to conversations...a big difference from other local restaurants!!

Great location in Pismo Beach. Bar drinks are priced amazingly well, and the food was excellent. The view made the visit here even more worthwhile, since we reserved at last minute. Will definitely go back on next trip.

Looking at Yelp this place looked promising. Upon getting there it looked like it needed a renovation. Everything was old and worn down. The Menu also looked promising but when it came out it was under whelming. Food was not flavorful and presentation was lacking. The drinks were even watered down. On the bright side our waiter was good and the view of the ocean was nice. For the price I paid I did not get the experience I was looking for.

My husband and I just recently bought a vacation home in Pismo. With the recommendation to eat at Sea Adventure, we decided to reserve a table for two. We ordered halibut. The sauce over the halibut was very tasty as well as the mushrooms and broccolini that came with it!

Overall a great experience. The food was amazing and the view was spectacular. My only complaint was that it felt like we waited a long time between courses. At first it was fine, more time to enjoy the view and conversation. At the end, it was a bit annoying.

Again, I highly recommend Seaventure. It was quite good. would just recommend a little more attention to the timing of the courses that come out to reduce the wait a bit. That said, the food was amazing!
