Food was not prepared correctly. Food took a long time to come out. Also drinks were hot. Service was terrible.

They seemed to be very unorganized, I’ll blame it on the large crowd and the fact that maybe they haven’t gotten a handle on how to manage it properly with the new restrictions that have been placed on businesses.

The service was amazing, and the food was to die for. I wasn’t so pleased with my cocktail... I had permanent vacation and it just wasn’t to my liking. Everything else was spot on !

The place was nice , whoever we were sitting outside and asked to bring a second umbrella which we didn’t get until the end . It was super hot and if you put people outside for a brunch then umbrella is the must have . Otherwise the place was beautiful and tables were nicely spread out

If you're looking for energetic and trendy ambience with good eats this is your place. I went with a few girlfriends we had a great time and the service was good considering outdoor dining circumstances. Try the drink that comes with the mini Moet champagne bottle, it was so good!

I loved my experience at Ventanas. My wife and I went on a date and she was very happy with the food and ambiance. Gorgeous outdoor dining area and service was great too. We ordered the K town wings and calamari, guacamole, lobster dumplings and sushi. Everything was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend!

We came here on a Tuesday. The place is beautiful so me and my husband set our expectations high. It took over 20 minutes to seat us, with a reservation and an extra 20 when seated to even get water. We ordered everything at once appetizer and our entree which was the tomahawk steak. We received everything but waited over 45 minutes for the steak in which the steak “got lost”...they brought the steak finally and although we asked for medium the bone still had raw meat on it due to how fast they cooked it for us. Our waitress didn’t even check up on us during the entire 45 minutes of us waiting and we spoke to numerous other servers and finally the manager. We will try again but this experience was disappointing to say the least.

We had a great time at Ventana’s and the service was amazing. Gabriella went above and beyond to accommodate us. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and was able to make really great recommendations. The only downside, I would say, is the sizes of the main course portions, it is slightly bigger than an appetizer size. After spending around $500 I truly did not want to go home and cook! However, we still love this place and we always have a great time.

Terrible service, I was there for 4 hours
Server probably came to us 5 times
I had to ask other servers to take my drink and food order. They just leave glasses there and don’t pick them up after bringing another round of drinks.
I’m in the hospitality industry so I know it gets crazy at times, but that doesn’t mean you don’t do the basics like clearing up the table for the entrees or more drinks!
Also! I got the tequila old fashion! It did not have ice! An old fashion of any kind should always have ICE! It was such a let down going

We went on Sunday and it was pretty quiet and casual but we found out that on Fridays and Saturdays they have a DJ so it’s a different vibe. The food was amazing and our waiter Kenny was the best! He made the whole experience enjoyable and we are looking forward to going back on a fri/sat.
