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.

On a warm winter afternoon, we were walking along the Ventura Beach promenade near the pier and ran into a friend so we decided to pop into Aloha for drinks on the their outdoor patio. Although we are locals, we never tire of the ocean view and this is a prime location for a beachside cocktail with their delicious crispy... More

This steak house used to be the best in Ventura. The wait staff was attenative, the steaks super and the sides excellent. Time changes all things. We found the service to be average at best and not near what a top notch steak house offers. The salad served was not fresh, maybe made up in the morning. The steaks were... More

iIve had good meals here and some just ok. it depends I guess on what you order. They are great at seafood and steaks, but not as great with other thongs. the roast beef dip I had was too fatty With fish , lobster , etc or steak, they excel. But I;d pass on other things, I guess their burgers... More
