Excellent food. Excellent service. And Fantastic Sunset views!! Be sure to make an advance reservation if you want to see the sunset over the ocean. We had the Mahi Mahi and Sea Bass dinners...both were wonderful. This restaurant has a Mexican-Sea food flare which includes homemade tortillas with choice of salsas. Delicious !!

We arrived in Pismo Beach on Valentine's Day and had forgotten to make dinner reservations. We walked into Ventana Grill and even though they were busy they were able to seat us at a table with a view. Valentine's Day dinner at the Ventana Grill was excellent. The vegetable enchiladas were filled with many different vegetables and the sauce delicious.... More

My friend and I went for an early lunch here. We had a big booth overlooking the ocean with a pelican putting on a flying display. I had a coconut mojito. Yum! I was surprised by the many Mexican dishes in the menu. I chose the pork sopes. Absolutely delicious with 3 salsas and guacamole. I will be craving them... More

Went here for anniversary dinner with my wife. The food was delicious, the view was amazing, but the dessert was the best part. Try the mud pie. It's hands down the best I've ever had.

Nice restaurant, amazing views and adequate menu. Best to make a reservation to avoid a long wait. Service in the restaurant is always great, but hostesses and bartender can be a little less accommodating. I recommend the Wedge Salad and Pasta or Soup, also the seafood is generally pretty good. It is really all about the view here, best at... More

Sunday Brunch at the Ventana Grill was a memorable experience. Our reservation was for 10, right when it opened. We arrived at 9:45 and there was already a line. At 10 when the door opened, those with reservations were invited to form a separate line. We were seated immediately at a window booth as we had requested in our reservation.... More

I know is a bit of a statement but considering the quality of the food and the location I can't think of anything better. Starting with the "Poblano steamed clams" ending with the fruit fondue with churros, everything was delicious. Then there is the outstanding location with a great view and a balcony on the cliff where you can finish... More

Even though we didn't get a table by the windows our table still afforded us an outstanding view and the food was just as delicious. I had the Cobb salad and my husband had an enormous chicken chimichanga. Raved about it for a long time afterward too.

We walked there from PISMO Beach centre....is about 1.5 miles, and after a huge meal ended up walking back too. Food is great and a good choice of mexican inspired and amercial food and the views are exquisite. There is a bar area and a ful on restaurant and it was busy in January mid week, so I assume reservations... More
