Where to go for a birthday or anniversary celebration in Ventura
by Sing Weist
Celebrating a birthday or anniversary? There are multiple restaurant options in Ventura that offer delicious drinks, as well as, dinner with beach view seating. If you are looking for a beachside restaurant, then Aloha Steakhouse is the perfect location! Not only is it steps away from the Ventura boardwalk, but after dinner, you can go on a lovely stroll on the Ventura pier.
This restaurant offers multiple tropical drinks that pair perfectly with their delicious appetizers: Ahi Tuna Wontons, Shrimp Cocktail, and if you cannot decide, go for the Aloha Platter. In addition to the view, drinks, and appetizers, their food and dessert are incredible, as well! Their Volcano Soufflé comes highly recommended (with a 20-minute cook time), but worth the wait. It also pairs perfectly well with the Hula Pie. You even have an option to get the full or mini size.

If you are looking to stay close to downtown Ventura where you can grab a drink or two before dinner, the perfect location for dinner is either Lure Fish House or Rumfish y Vino. Rumfish y Vino has a beautiful ambiance with high ceilings, wood fan blades, and wood tables. You feel like you are dining in Hawaii at a local restaurant. This location is wonderful for a Friday night date night with your loved one. Ladies put on your summer dress. Gentlemen, button-up that linen shirt, and get ready to enjoy a nice glass of wine and delicious food!
