I met a few friends at Cafe Fiore during happy hour. The food and drink were very good. The martinis were outstanding. I'll definitely return.

We've eaten here many times over several years. It's a favorite every time we visit Ventura. The food is always very good & so is the service. The desserts are great too, unfortunately. We always return.

The waitstaff is excellent here. The food is always top notch. I think the food is overpriced, but you are paying for the ambience.

we came here for a light bite. I got the wrapped shrimp with cheese. It was yummy, just a bit too salty for myself. But the shrimp tasted fresh and not farmed. We will come back when in Ventura

Yes, there is an outdoor area for eating. It has a clear glass portion on top of a wall to help block the wind off of the water. There are also heaters and a fire pit for those colder evenings. One thing to keep in mind is... More
