The last few times we have ordered takeout the food has been very salty with a strange aftertaste, and too expensive for the quality Even the pizza was too salty

Great food and service as always. Good distancing inside and very clean. Mussels are a must, red or white are fantastic. Nice wine selection. Flatbread choices are interesting and taste good. Portions are a good size and usually result in leftovers. Prices are reasonable. Parking...close by. Always a good time.More

Was looking for a nice sit-down restaurant to be able to enjoy a real meal that is not just takeout. Saw on TripAdvisor that they had outdoor seating since New Jersey had just allowed that on this past Monday. Was extremely happy to have chosen...Ventura's. We ordered chicken parmigiana and Daniellas shrimp. Both were excellently done. We had enough to take home and enjoyed all of it for dinner. Will be glad to go back again, whether outside or inside dining when that becomes available.More

Went with out of town guests and it was fabulous. Tried the goat cheese and asparagus salad..perfect! Order the white spicy mussels, they were not spicy but very delicious. Waitress was friendly and attentive even though it was a busy Saturday night. Did not disappoint!

I have been dining at Ventura’s for more than 20 years so you know there are plenty of choices that have pleased me, especially the mussels, the burgers, the pizza and the Caesar salad. Last night I went there with two friends. We each ordered...a different salad for dinner (sizes are generous). The Caesar was as always good, however I chose the fajita steak salad. What a disappointment! My large portion of spring mix dominated the plate. My friends who had both gotten chicken on their salads had large portions of sliced chicken breast atop their meals. I had to search my plate to find the steak. When I did there were fewer than 8 skimpy pieces of overcooked meat ( I ordered it medium). There were about four or five tiny pieces of tomato. So basically I had a plate of greens and a glass of wine for dinner. No bread was offered to us. Very disappointing meal from my old standby.More

Went for business lunch here. Had the most incredible salad! Ensalada Portofino A mixture of fresh baby greens, baby spinach, port wine pears, crumbled bleu cheese, sliced strawberries, candied walnuts and fresh tomatoes with a strawberry vinaigrette dressing Can’t wait to order it again.

This a nice, comfortable place. Mostly locals go there, but if you like mussels you have to stop by the bar.

My son and I are from San Diego. We were in the area on business and drove from Atlantic City just for the mussels. The portion was very generous and absolutely delicious! We ordered the white. Dunking the bread in that sauce was Devine! The...pizza was also great. The staff is accommodating and the beer cold! I wish they were in San Diego!More
