Our first stop on a well needed road trip and we were so looking forward to a nice dinner. While the service was good, I can’t say the same for our meal. We tried the gazpacho and it was actually delicious but then the meal went downhill! We ordered the carpaccio and it was stringy and tough. They had a pesto pasta special that we both decided to have and it was tasteless! Turned out our server said it was a red pepper pesto sauce but honesty, we couldn’t taste anything but olive oil! Will not return the this place if we ever find ourselves in Morro Bay again.

Had great service. Our table of 4 all we had was drinks and appetizers. Recomend the coconut shrimp tacos, prime rib sliders, gazpacho and Cesar salad. Outside patio seating actually was a plus. Will probably continue to ask for outside after the Covid is over.

We were celebrating our anniversary and unfortunately our service was awful. We barely saw our waiter and our meals took 40 minutes to come out to our table, even though all we ordered were two salads. We also order dessert through the manager because our waiter never came back to the table and it came out charred and smelled completely burnt. Definitely won’t be going back.

Great food. Servers are lacking “polish”. Please don’t ever ask me to keep my fork for the next course! Where do I put a dirty fork?? On the table? Yuck. Gorgeous view. Low end tableware and furniture, but the view and food make up for it.

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!!
