They wouldn’t substitute one type of lettuce for another(both were on the menu). The entree dish of gnocchi was redicules small. They refused to add a side dish of mushrooms .
The Uruguayan steak was hard and had a big piece of ligament.
The flourless chocolate cake was excellent.

My wife and I went there for lunch to celebrate our 20th anniversary and it was the best meal we’ve had in years. Service was prompt and attentive. The dishes — from appetizers to main to dessert— were exquisite both in taste and presentation. Lamb bacon was a unique and delicious ingredient that made a chicken sandwich an out of this world experience. We went to wine tasting right before lunch so we didn’t order any alcohol with the meal. The check for the two of us came to just over $100 but was well worth it.

Perfect , not too sweet and not overwalm . I believe was the first day for the pastry chef and I can anticipated an incredible success .
Thank you

This was our first time at Tierra Sur, it won't be our last. Food was very good and our waitress was exceptional. The host was less than welcoming, I think he was very inexperienced and when we arrived five minuets early he said we would have to wait even though we saw empty tables and were eventually seated at one of the tables we saw. Quality of the food and our waitress made up for the host. We were here for Thanksgiving dinner.

Our favorite Ventura County fine dining restaurant. We love the genuine farm-to-table approach, the innovative dishes, and the passion for quality and flavor. The chef, his team and the front-of-house staff are all very skilled and dedicated to providing the best dining experience possible. This is a real gem. Tierra Sur was an easy choice when deciding where to spend our 30th anniversary evening. Thanks for making it special!

This is probably the best kosher restaurant in the United States. It is located within the Herzog Winery. At the entrance, there is a bar where you can have a wine tasting; I think it was $10 for 6 different wines. You can also order appetizers for a moderate price. We were there for dinner, and the food was superb. The waiters are very attentive. The price is not cheap, but there are several kosher steakhouses in New York that are much more expensive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The waiter that helped us was so rude and we waited too long for our food to get ready. They were out of sweet potato which is very odd for Sunday! There steak size was very small for $65 charge with the green beans side dish which was not tender at all!

When you charge $75 for a steak you need to set some ground rules for families that come in with children under 5 years old. One of the problems I have with going to a nice kosher restaurant is the unwillingness of the staff to tell families with out-of-control children to maintain a level of behavior conducive for fine dining. There are plenty of family friendly kosher restaurants that are appropriate for small children, but until the expensive restaurants will stand up for their other customers and tell their patrons to address their misbehaving (running around and yelling) kids they are not welcome, I will not be back

The reservation was made as an annerversary dinner. As it was a quiet night we were greeted but our reservation wasn't checked off as you pretty much sit wherever you wanted. As a result we were treated to a fantastic meal, but without the celebration aspect I was hoping for.

The experience was rather well and I would give it the highest of ratings as an overall. My only disappointment, personally, was the lack of vegan options which I had specified in the "special requests" upon setting the reservation. It wasn't even brought up and when I did so it seemed as if I'd asked an odd question. Other than that it was as fantastic as usual.

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant, not just for the delicious food and nice, quiet ambience but most importantly the fact that it is DAIRY FREE. I'm lactose intolerant and this is always an issue for me at most restaurants, but not this one. I'm not vegan or vegetarian, but trying to decipher on a menu what is dairy free is not easy is most restaurants and limits my options. My husband is not dairy free, but he can't tell the difference here. ALso, he Dropped his knife on the floor & before he could turn around to summon another, they were placing a new one on the table for him. AMAZING FOOD & SERVICE!

Definitely pricey but perfect for a special night out with friends, family, or that extra special someone. I went in a group of 9. We had a fantastic evening.

Started our night off walking through their art exhibit on the second floor. From here we also saw a part of their facilities. Wish it weren't a holiday. Their guided tour were canceled for the day.

We then headed back down for a wine tasting flight. We bought several bottles to bring home with us.

Next, we moved into their dining area and started with their delectable Lamb Chorizo con Huevo. We ordered the Moroccan Lamb Ravioli as an appetizer as well. It missed the mark by being a little bland and dry. When it came time for the entrees, the Uruguayan Ribeye was perfection! The right seasoning, sauce, and sides. As someone who does not enjoy fish, the sea bass was also enjoyable. I paired my meal with the Ventura Surf’s Mondo’s Blonde Ale. Maybe not the best drink for this meal but it was a very tasty beer.
