I don't eat meat, but they have a great wine list, delicious kale Cesar salad, spinach wontons and bean tacos (sub black beans for prime rib). They also have yummy specialty drinks, pretzel bread and an easy-on-your-wallet happy hour menu. Cheers! Can't wait for her next restaurant to open ...

This is a great place to come for happy hour. We recently celebrated a birthday and had delicious food and beverages at reasonable prices. I highly recommend it.

We went for my husbands birthday and our anniversary. We both love Frank Sinatra so had high expectations. First the service was excellent and friendly. The prime rib was tough and hard to cut much less chew. I just ate around the outside of mine. The real disappointment was Frank. As long as he was singing Sinatra he was really... More

Met friends here for the first time last Saturday for Happy Hour... The menu was extensive and everything sounded delicious. It was hard to choose just one thing so we ordered two... The food was delicious and fresh. We all ordered different items which gave us a chance to try a few more items. The menu items were reasonably priced... More

The saving grace of our dinner at Prime was that the steaks were very good: good meat, generous portions, cooked exactly as ordered. Salads were fresh and good (although the 'wedge' salad wasn't a wedge...odd). The sides we had were rich (garlic mashed potatoes) and over the top (twice-baked potato smothered in a multi-colored cheese and bacon bits layer that... More

TERRIBLE!! We have eaten at the Agoura Prime Steakhouse and loved the prime rib so we decided to try this one. We started with each a glass of the most inexpensive merlot at $9 each. I had the wedge salad which bears no resemblance to the wedge salad shown on their web site. It was chopped lettuce drizzled with a... More

Great celebration dinner spot. That being said, it is one of the BEST Happy hours in Ventura. The martinis are huge, the appetizers are amazing. Happy hour starts at 5PM and goes until 8pm! The tables for happy hour do fill up so make sure you are there on time.

My wife and I started with the Spicy Calamari appetizer. The spice level was just right but unfortunately the calamari was very overcooked. It came with cocktail sauce but no lemon. We got tired of the rubberiness of the calamari and didn't finish the ap. We both had the four course Best of Prime. This is a fairly good deal.... More
