This is a fine dining restaurant with entrees running $20-$35. They have happy hour until 7:00! Drinks run $5 -$10 and bar food in the $8-$10 range! This is gourmet food at a ridiculously low price! The restaurant sits right on the water's edge of Ventura Harbor, at the very north end of the inland side of the harbor. Great... More

Location right at harbour with seabirds,sups and plenty of boats motoring or sailing by. Enjoyed sanddabs and prime rib special. Everything was prepared to perfection including every vegetable. Presentation also a plus. Creme brulee with real vanilla bean was perfectly executed and devoured. Wait staff attentive and personable. We will return when we are again in the area.

I have lived in Ventura County for over two decades and not until my daughter told me where we were going for Mother's Day Brunch had I heard of this restaurant. What a Gem! The food was superb, delicious, hot, fresh and so yummy! The service was impeccable, from the Hostesses at the front desk, the servers and their continued... More

My adult son made reservations for 7 including two mothers. I was looking forward to trying it out. I didn't know we were committed to a brunch. I prefer ordering off a menu but was very pleased with the offering. Heather our waitress and the rest of the staff was top notch. We will come back on a normal day... More

Nice sunset view of the Harbor. Four of us, shared a lobster, Halibut and a steak with salads. The wedge salad was good. The other food was average tasting. We brought our own wine and they charged $20 for the corkage fee. When we complained , they knocked off $5. Most places charge $5 - $10. Service was slower than... More

Had a fantastic anniversary dinner at Rhumbline tonight. If you haven't been there, go. Food, service, views all above par! In the harbor. Can't say enough about how great this place is run. The (new) owner will come to your table and check in. A keeper all the way around. And they'll be closing to renovate in the near future.... More

We've been to Rhumb Line several time for its wonderful happy hour. As a result of our good experience at happy hour we decided to give it another try for dinner. Our last visit for dinner was after it just opened and that was not such a good experience. We were pleasantly surprised this time as the food's quality, presentation... More

So good the first night I went back for a second dinner the next night. The service was excellent, thank you Kimmy, Michael, and Tony! The first night I had the cioppino...to die for. Night number 2 I opted for the linguine with clams, not half bad but didn't hold a candle to the cioppino. Beautiful view of Ventura Harbor.... More

The main problem was the air conditioner was broken in a way that it could not be turned off and this led to very cold people and food. The taste was ok when hot. The waitress was less than sympathetic. I suppose I will wait to see if good reviews come in over the next month to see if we... More

The Plumb Line is a pleasant room overlooking the working fishing boats end of the Marina harbor. Dinner was very good with some reservations. We started with grilled octopus which was a nicely presented sliced long tentacle. My wife had a perfectly done and generous serving of the Sea bass. The accompanying mashed potatoes were very good but the brocolini... More
