I know this place is known for it's wine, and should be, but there's a hidden winner here in the food. Virtually everything is great, but the burgers are among the best in Ventura and reasonably priced.

Said master Yoda to Luke a long time ago... This cave is a completely different kind of experience. My advice is to buy a bottle in store and bring it over before the corkage fees begin and dine on some very good small plates. If you never been, the place has been constructed to look like the inside of a cave and they have two wine dispensary machines one white and the other red that you can make 1 of 3 choices of wine pours. This is done with a card you get loaded with cash at the front desk. Nice as a novelty but bigger savings by getting a bottle in the connected store ( Ventura wine co.). If you are not a wine expert ( not that many of us are) the samples can defintely get you pointed in the right direction for what style might suit your palate. The menu changes from time to time and worth going back just for the food sampling.

Love the enomatic wine machine, the ability to taste different wines by varying sizes is a great idea! The food is very good as well. Love the atmosphere, perfect for date night!

The cave has got a great concept going on for them! You preload a card with money and then you go around and swipe your card on the wine dispensing machine which allows you to taste multiple wines. It can get a little expensive because the pours can range from $1-$7 depending, but it's really cool! The food quality is ok (not the greatest taste) but it's fairly cheap anyways. Really cool place to hang out, taste wine and have some small bites!
