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

We enjoyed a fabulous meal last night on Valentine's Day. The restaurant was nicely decorated for the occasion. There was a set menu for the Valentine's dinner. We had crab cakes, mushroom soup, spinach salad and steaks. Everything was delicious. This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely go back often.

My boyfriend and I have been frequenting Rhumb Line for years. Last year a new owner took over and the place went up two stars where we were concerned. The food is delicious. The fish and chips are to dye for, the desserts are fabulous, the salads are amazing and overall, I can't think of anything on the menu that... More

Happy to report that this harbor front restaurant, now under new management, is GREAT. I had the sanddabs (very good), my wife the halibut (best ever), and our neighbors with whom we enjoyed the evening, raved as well. The service was very good although the place was quiet after the holiday madness. For the best harbor view (other than Brophy's),... More

Very nice place, great service and excellent food. It was a birthday gathering so many guests. They did just fine. Only two minor comments. 1. They could not blend drinks that day, no blender. Everything was on the rocks. 2. Felt badly for a new waitress, she dropped a tray glasses twice and the glasses broke.

We wandered into this very good restaurant by accident because of its proximity to our condo next door. We were told that it had just opened under new owners. We were seated outside with the most beautiful harbor view. We had a light lunch with chowder and appetizer and were not disappointed. Food was delicious.

We were impressed with the location, warmth of the staff and atmosphere but expected better quality for the price (6 people ~ $350). We had problems with pretty much every step along the way on Thanksgiving. Top 3: 1. reservation - moved us from 5pm to 7:15pm because we were scheduled for the wrong Thursday 2. seating - tried to... More
