We dined here for lunch on Mothers Day because it was the only restaurant with openings for lunch in town. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere, friendly staff, is in a great location, but the food itself we thought was just average. However the fresh fish selections were absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. The accompanying sides - garlic mashed... More

Admittedly this was some time ago... so maybe it's better now... we were there during a WS game - the wait staff was inattentive and the food was really poor. I got a mediocre steak with some disgusting gloopy teriyaki sauce on it and my wife's dish was poor as well. Poor service/poor food.. .ergo rating it poor. The interior... More

This is a relatively new spot near the pier in Ventura. It is a perfect spot if you like Hawaii theme, beach views while dining on steak or fish. Since the closing of the old Pierpont Inn we have been waiting for a nice ambiance with beach front views in Ventura. This was a lunch stop going south and I... More

I enjoyed a cowboy ribeye at the Aloha. Their salads were really fresh and boasts an ample serving. Had a great waiter and the hostess met us with an inviting smile. Call and reserve if you want an ocean view while you eat. The drinks here at happy hour make you happy. The drinks after happy hour, not so happy.... More

This was our first time here and it was busy. We made reservations which really helped as the wait was long for others. The food was great. And so was the service.

As a journalist and author I have traveled across the US and in 40 years of writing and reviewing eatery's, this place will knock your socks off. Many walk out bare foot. The Aloha is located near the sea on California street and the aroma will make your mouth water. My favorite is the Blackened Salmon House Salad, next would... More

Peter, our waiter, was a delight. He was courteous, efficient and attentive. The food was so so good w ample portions. The calamari was lightly fried and tender. The steak was perfectly cooked. But, get the coconut shrimp either for app or main, it's deliciously sweet and tender. However, the desserts were amazing as well! Chocolate volcano cake? Hula pie?... More

We went as a large group of 27 people. They had all of our orders right and the food was very good. While it was next door to our hotel and the convenience was important, I would have traveled a long way for the Aloha's service, food and fantastic location on Ventura Beach.

I ate there for a business dinner and the view of the ocean was nice but the food was just OK. I've had better and I dont think I'd go there if it were not for work.
