Sea Venture Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was a big surprise. Everything on the menu sounded delicious. Everyone was very polite and helpful. Our server was very sweet and attentive. Has very awesome variations of food and it was delicious. The only thing I would say is to get a reservation while there is sunlight so you can enjoy the view.
We were very pleased with our dinner and drinks! Vol-en-vent is amazing! Tequilla Woo Woo....Woo Woo 👍🏼a delightful tequilla non-margarita drink!
Once it's dark you can't see the ocean so, some soft lighting on the beach n ocean would have added to the ambience!
The night started out wonderful, then a Christmas Party came in and they were in another room. But soon the loud group came out and went to the bar. The noise level was terrible and it took forever to gather them up and move them into where there party was taking place. Because of that, I did not enjoy my Birthday dinner. Cory the waiter was very nice, but it did not change the environment. I was so looking forward to dinner. I would think that management would keep these big parties in their area.
We spend the winters in an RV Park in the Pismo area and were happy to find Sea Venture was serving Thanksgiving dinner. We had a table by the window for a beautiful view of the sunset and a wonderfully delicious 3-course dinner. The first and second course options were nicely varied (My husband had seared scallops with prime rib and I had the pumpkin soup with traditional turkey). The 3 mini desserts were a perfect finish. I also liked that they serve 80% local wines, only bringing in non-local wines for specific varietals not available on the Central Coast.
My wife wanted to go to this restaurant for Thanksgiving because it looked liked an elegant restaurant from the photographs and because of this she thought the food would be good and it was on the beach. Big mistake. The only thing that was true about this restaurant was that it is on the beach. This is hardly a good reason to eat here. This restaurant totally ruined my Thanksgiving. The food was absolutely terrible. Everything tasted liked it was from a can or a box, including the turkey. I ate about 1/3 of the dinner and told my wife I was done. The dessert was even worse. No pie of any kind. The advertising was very misleading. It implied 3 desserts including pumpkin pie. What we got were three little tiny containers of pumpkin pie filling with Kool Whip, some jam with a piece of apple and granola and some kind of mocha colored pudding. Horrible. I would say in total, the dessert serving amounted to three tablespoons of something, certainly not food. And for the eating on the beach, we paid over $100 for this mess, with no alcohol. This was just the food bill! I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone unless they just have a real jonesing for prison food.
While we dine out for lunch almost daily...we are very selective when choosing dinner spots.
This is definitely one of the best spots for an occasion or romantic dining. The food, service, and atmosphere are great. NOT a fan of jazz and the band was extremely loud...but otherwise all made for a wonderful experience. Dessert was on the house (cream brûlée) and must add it was MARVALOUS! Will return again and again...as have for years!
Not sure if we just hit them on a bad night, but our food was average at best. Overpriced for the quality we received. And the dessert was just weird...we ordered the banana cream pie and it wasn’t creamy at all. It tasted like gelatin had been added to the filling making it rubbery. The view was spectacular, though, and we watched a beautiful sunset. We also saw whales feeding along the shore. Great location.
Tasty menu with good variety, killer sunset view right on the ocean, very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable serving staff, nice ambiance, all converge to offer my wife and me a memorable anniversary dinner.
The wine list featured good to excellent choices of wines from the region, which is rapidly rising to challenge Napa and Sonoma.
Your Hostess that night was wonderful. We've had her before. She is very professional and accommodating. She always gets us the table we request. The food was best we've had there. The server was professional but we felt like he was a bit in a hurry. We had a great evening as always.
Well, we've hit the Sea Venture bar before on a Jazz Jubilee Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed it. This year, we got around to having dinner there on a night when they had live music and it was great. The food was fantastic! Prices were inline with first class dining. My only nit was that it was loud. Did I mention that it was loud? That was the people talking at the tables. Not the live music.
We also hit F. McLintocks and Rosas (and a couple of less, expensive venues like Brads and Wooleys) while there this year and the Sea Venture is our new favorite for quality dining and ambiance.
I highly recommend this place for discriminating palates. Wonderful food and service.
poor service from waiter, had to get my own drink from the bar,
meal was not prepared as requested so there for did not eat dinner that night,
I am a returning customer to the restaurant and this was the worse experience I have had especially for a Anniversary date night!
The service and ambiance were excellent although when it got dark, we were unable to see the beautiful view. We had a 7:30 p.m. reservation which meant that the sun had already set. If you want a view of the water, go earlier. Kudos to Amanda our waitress for her great service. She was always bustling. The only negative was that the food was a little over salted but that might have been our tastebuds. We would go to the Sea Venture again if we are back in Pismo Beach.
The food was absolutely delicious, the service was very good as well. The restaurant is situated on the beach overlooking the ocean, a beautiful scenic view. Now get this, I don't think I have ever said this about any restaurant I have been too, they are UNDER-priced. The amazing food and views you would think justify an added expense, not here. Keep up the great work Sea Venture, we WILL definitely be back.
great food and scenic for relaxing dining. the crab and shrimp dish that i cannot pronounce the name of but in a flaky shell was about one of the best dishes i have ever had and i'm picky about seafood. really wonderful.
we had a steak as a side dish to the seafood and it was also wonderful. very tender and great sauce served with it. great drinks. just overall great experience. met lots of nice people at the bar while waiting for table. very fun place.
