The food was superb! filet cooked to perfection. Hubble's lamb chops were very well prepared. Servers were excellent. Today I see an article in the paper that they served their last patron on Sunday and the building has been leased to someone else.Woe is me!

Having spent two weeks in California we happened on this great Restaurant in Ventura Beach. Have a drink upstairs on the roof top Terrace and then venture downstairs for a fantastic meal. Unplanned stop for us and one of our highlights!

Went for happy hour and it was well worth it. 4 dollar well drinks and 3 dollar bottles. Best part though - 5 dollar calamari. We actually end up getting it twice, ha. View from the third floor was cool too. G Man

The food is average at best, and quite overpriced for Ventura. The best part is the location, and the upstairs bar and local talent. It's fun on a date or before a concert however, the downstairs dinners aren't for me.
