TERRIBLE!! We have eaten at the Agoura Prime Steakhouse and loved the prime rib so we decided to try this one. We started with each a glass of the most inexpensive merlot at $9 each. I had the wedge salad which bears no resemblance to the wedge salad shown on their web site. It was chopped lettuce drizzled with a... More

Great celebration dinner spot. That being said, it is one of the BEST Happy hours in Ventura. The martinis are huge, the appetizers are amazing. Happy hour starts at 5PM and goes until 8pm! The tables for happy hour do fill up so make sure you are there on time.

My wife and I started with the Spicy Calamari appetizer. The spice level was just right but unfortunately the calamari was very overcooked. It came with cocktail sauce but no lemon. We got tired of the rubberiness of the calamari and didn't finish the ap. We both had the four course Best of Prime. This is a fairly good deal.... More

I've been eating some of the best foods, prepared just the way you like it for several years. At must stop during your visit or with a large group. Never know who you'll met there. Atmosphere is relaxing and the service is excellent. Give it a try, as a writer who travels most of the time I know a excellent... More

If you desire a great atmosphere, with a cool live music selection and an over the top wine list this is the place for you. If you noticed I didn't mention the menu. The reason is it needs and deserves a page of its own. The steaks are well portioned and prepared. My date was a profession from Osaka Japan... More

The building location is old but adds to the charm of the place. When we walked in we were greeted with a smile which continued for the entire evening. The food was absolutely fantastic and our congrats to the chef. They offer a fix price menu that has some great selections. You must try the Avocado Roll or the Heirloom... More

3 of us ordered the Prime Rib and the quality was very sub par considering the price. Lots of fat and gristle on all pieces. I get better meat at Sizzler. I couldn't eat it without drowning it in sauce and could not finish because it was so oily. We complained and the waiter offered us complimentary dessert which we... More

Love the martinis at this place. They are always top shelf. Really bummed they don't do a raspberry lemon drop, but the regular lemon drop or the dirty martini is really good. The food is also good. Service at the bar can be a little slow if they are really busy. This is one of the best happy hour places... More

We had steak, garlic mashed and Caesar salad. Steak very tender and delicious! Tuesday is Sinatra night and the musician was amazing. It is very dimly lit, I would love just a little more light. Obviously a locals favorite.
