We had a lovely meal with a view of the bay and we could see several whales breaching in the bay.
Our server was amazing! The view was beautiful from anywhere in the entire place! Food was great, can’t say enough great things about our evening! Definitely will be back!
Great location and views. It annoys me that I have to write 50 characters or more giving a review. I should be able to write as many words as I feel is appropriate. Hopefully the addition of these last few sentences hit your 50 word criteria. That is silly and I would rethink this as I wonder how many good reviews you’ve lost because of this.
Took long for waiter to take our drink orders
Our waitress April was excellent. Service was exceptional
Good ambiance. Nice view. Server was pleasant. Will definitely come back..
Beautiful view, great service, good food. Really nice spot to take in the ocean view while enjoying food.
Great food and service. Outstanding ocean view and the tequila made it a perfect evening.
Food and wait staff were excellent. View is lovely and staff very accommodating of my gluten allergy.
Wonderful staff and an awesome view! Thank you 😃 we made reservations and were there to celebrate our anniversary.
Spectacular location, friendly staff, delicious food. Great place for a romantic dinner date, business meal, or even going out as a family. The fresh made tortillas are great!
Great ocean views, food, and service. The best Nachos and Halibut Tacos. Great drinks and wine selection.
Best view on the coast! Service is great, food fantastic!
As always everything was excellent. When we come up to Pismo we always make sure we have dinner at your restaurant.
A favorite of ours. If the locals like it . . . . A nice variety of food from the usual to the daring. The homemade tortillas are worth a visit on their own.
Great view awesome meal!
Awkward host situation where our (last available) table was given away by 2nd host very unapologetically to a party that came after us.
Restaurant incroyable avec super vue sur l'océan. Nourriture vraiment excellente. Un de nos plus beau resto.
First time visiting this restaurant Terrible service from the moment we walked in as we were ignored. Others seated before us and served before us despite reservation. Once seated surrounded by a swarm of flies. Slow service and food flavorless other than fresh tortillas which were great.
Never a disappointment. Staff always pleasant and accommodating.
I have been here several times and this time the food wasn’t as good as it usual is . The salmon my friend had was over cooked but she didn’t want to send it back . The service was terrific and the desserts were great
We had a party of 5 and sat at a round table for 6. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. We had gluten-free diners who were able to get the crab encrusted fish. We also had a couple who is eating a plant-based diet and the server was able to adapt the menu items to fit what they desired. Everyone was happy with their entrees. The view was amazing! Loved the home-made tortillas with salsas.
It was our Anniversary. New place had never eaten there but loved it very much will definitely return again.
We had a truly special 50th wedding anniversary dinner! Everyone was so nice to us and excellent service at the bar then dinner with a window seat just at sunset! Romantic.
Ventana Grill is amazing. My fiance and I ate there for a date and the whole experience was fantastic. The server was perfect and friendly. The sound was perfect, not too loud not too quiet, the view was amazing, and we both loved our food. Will come here again. 12/10
We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday. The staff was kind and personable. The food was fantastic and it was a terrific way to end the night.
Ventana Grill is one of our favorite restaurants and when we want fish, this is the place we go. Their specials are just that--special. Their every day menu options would be specials anywhere else. There was one very raucous table nearby that we don't usually experience but the views and the dishes always make the dining very special.
Excellent food preparation. Service was fast and efficient. Views were spectacular.
Had a wonderful dinner with a perfect ocean view!!
Ventana Grill is one of my very favorite places. The food is great, service is always wonderful and the view is spectacular!!
This was our first time. We came from out of town to visit family who suggested your place. I made the reservation and was attempting to get people from 3 different places to meet. I ended up having to change the number of people and appreciated the flexibility. Our server was very friendly and professional and we liked that we could hear each other talk!
Service and food was good, we had a window seat which was a beautiful view of the ocean,
Awesome view, great food, excellent, attentive, friendly but not on your face service. Very relaxing environment. This place made our stay on Pismo.
Food was rather bad, I could have whipped up a grilled salmon and sautéed spinach at home without drying the fish. The free apps were tortilla with cinnamon butter and salsas, the whole combination was odd. Soup was the only good thing. Asked for a table with a view and was seated in a table next to a black window
The views made up for everything this place was lacking.
The views are breath taking. The food is very delicious and there is a good selection to choose from. Came here with my husband on our wedding anniversary and we made a great choice. Reservations highly recommended.
We have always enjoyed our meals at the Ventana Grill. Tonight's meal was no exception it was wonderful. Our server April was helpful and attentive throughout our meal. All and all a great night!
Love ventana grill been several times now. Food great service good and friendly hostess with immediate seating. So nice! Only small complaint pretty stuffy. Could have used fans or crank AC
Looking forward to my next visit and try some differently. I get the same thing every time! Thankyou!
Great evening celebrating my parent’s 65th anniversary.
Very good choice of different meals. Fantastic location and great view on the sea. Good parking opportunities. Very friendly service. Very good sea food.
