We loved the atmosphere and the live piano player. Great wall of wines and drinks, great look and feel. I had the pomodoro chicken, he had the asiago ravioli Alfredo. Both were good tasting but small portion for the price. I was very shocked that a side salad costs an extra $4 per person. That should be included with a no sides entre option. Garlic bread and flat breads weren't great. Dessert was an apple tart and very tasty. Cherry coke was yummy but not $3.50 yummy. Our total bill was over $52 and it just wasn't worth that. Shoulda gone to applebees.

The staff made us feel very comfortable. We both loved our food and I thought the lasagna was the best! Enjoyed the piano player.

We ate lunch at Ventana, and we're so glad we took someone's advice to dine here. With a busy day our lunch hit around 2 p.m., and few diners were left from a normal mealtime. I had a chicken salad sandwich on croissant, with a side of fruit and chips. Partner had a prime rib sandwich. Both were very good, and we look forward to dining here again.
