We used to live in the area and often enjoyed Prime. Last few times we’ve been back in town we’ve really enjoyed Casa Bella. The four-course menu is a great value and everything we’ve ordered has been outstanding. Service is delightful and cocktails are generously poured. Also love the charming parklette street scene.

Ordered the Ribeye, at $55 and was super disappointed 😞 it was tuff no flavor. The rest was OK, guess thats why I only go here once every few years.

This is our "go to" for good drinks, wine and food! Over the past several months we have not been able to eat at a restaurant indoors, this was our first evening out in many months and it was perfect. Thank you!

We had a Ribeye and Lobster Tail four course meal for two. It was a great value and all the courses were delicious. Our server (and bartender), Genna was very attentive and cheerful throughout the evening. We will definitely go back next time we're in Ventura.

Terrible! I realize that restaurants have suffered in the last 12 months but we waited forever for our food. When you serve a $55 p/p menu I expect the food to be top quality. It was poor, tasteless and overcooked.

Service was great, food was great, a little slow between appetizer and main course but they were really busy so understandable. We will definitely be back to enjoy this wonderful place!

This was my 2nd visit. Love this ultra chic steakhouse.
Everything is delicious. The current menu offers a choice of an appetizer, soup or salad, entree and side. The coconut mojito does not disappoint. Their bread and butter is yummo! I’ve tried the rib eye with jalapeño creamed soinach, salmon, their prosciutto wrapped bacon are my fave!! Everything is on par! The portions are great too! Must for a nice night out!

Good food, our bone in rib-eye was good, a little over cooked for our taste, we asked for medium but what we got was more of a almost well done but good flavor.

The table we sat at was on a slant with the most uncomfortable chairs. People were constantly standing behind/around us talking. The steak was way over cooked and chewy

Three of the 4 of us were there for the $29 Lobster dinner. All sides that we chose were very good: Mac & cheese, Corn, spinach, and mashed potatoes, and the bread was really good. The lobster, although good, was a little overcooked and dry - butter helped! My hubby got the Chateau steak dinner and it was overdone for medium rare and the ends were dry but tasty enough. We would have enjoyed sitting outside a little more if they didn't have to move the heater away from us because of the overhead fabric. Cant imagine why after all these months it wasn't mentioned as a concern when we inquired about having a good outside table by a heater.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice steak house in Ventura. The blocked off Main Street looked like a nice place to walk around. Casa Bella had a pretty outdoor area, but also clean distanced inside dining. Service was great. The appetizer were good. Strange having a Jalapeño Cesaer salad, but ok. The steaks were well prepared Med Rare with sides of Brussels sprouts. Again weird jalapeño mashed potatoes. I guess I should have guessed that with a name like Casa Bella, there would be a Mexican theme.
They did make a good Martini with blue cheese olives.

Great meal in the Covid sidewalk venue. Cheerful, attentive service. All the meals were a hit, as well as the very reasonable wine list. Hint: cab lovers should try Austin Hope can—only $45 and amazing.

My Chilean Sea Bass and Ahi Ceviche starter were both great. Others went for steaks and were happy with doneness to order. Wedge and Caesar salads were good, though unremarkable.

We skipped dessert. Plenty of food without!

Very fun place.

The food and service was fantastic! While I wasn't expecting the cuisine to have a Mexican influence, it was a very nice surprise! Everything we had was quite good and flavorful. We order the 32oz ribeye for two. It was delicious. Would definitely be back.

One of our first dine-in (outside) experiences in the last year. Tables have appropriate spacing and the tent has open air sides. Staff is masked. Service was attentive and charming. We enjoyed the four course meal - we were surprised by the large servings. Food was excellent. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was perfectly cooked. I had ordered mushrooms and green beans as the side, not realizing the sea bass came on a bed of mushrooms. Both were yummy. The wedge salad was generous and delicious. The chorizo mussels for the appetizer were unique and delicious. Other diners at the table had the filet, the Chateaubriand, and the pasta with loner (a dull lobster on top!). Lobster bisque was reported to be divine. Deviled eggs were the tallest I’ve ever seen! Beautiful presentation. Delicious. And safe in the time of covid.

Ryan and her staff were absolutely wonderful. There were ten of us for a vastly scaled down wedding dinner. We were seated appropriately for COVID concerns and felt very safe. Our waiter was extremely professional and attended to our every need, including serving a small wedding cake. All of meals were outstanding. And, before we left Ryan made a point of speaking with us personally to confirm we were pleased with the dining experience. This our second dinner at Casa Bella and certainly not our last. Great service, friendly and professional staff. And above all consistently outstanding food!!!

Everything was great, except the OWNERS DID NOT WEAR THEIR MASKS! Did not realize this until we were almost done, but that is SO disrespectful to the servers and the patrons! Will not be going back there during Covid until we see this has been rectified.
