Ventanas at the Modern
Latin American dining is getting a boost from David Burke, the chef behind BLT Prime, the steakhouse at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.
Burke, who lives in Fort Lee, is the culinary managing director at VENTANAS. Along with Chef Andrew Riccatelli, they will create a menu blending modern American, Latin and Asian Flavors. Sourcing locally & responsibly from nearby farms and purveyors to reflect the best of each season.
The 7,000-square-foot space will seat 150 people in the dining room, which comes with a chef’s table, 80 people in the Red Room, and 75 to 100 people on the outdoor terrace bar and lounge.
Excellent service, food, and entertainment.
Unfortunately when we did arrive there was a bit of a wait even with our reservation. But once we were sat the experience was amazing. We started off our meal with the lobster dumplings, which were amazing !!! So delicious and a great amount for two people. For dinner I had the scallops and octopus which was to die for. The scallops melted in my mouth. Portion correctly not too light and not too heavy. Overall experience there is so much fun. Would go again!
Beautiful place . and tasty food. The service was excellent
Best friends engagement
Our waitress was amazing she explained the menu she even offer top pick items from the menu overall it was a great experience
Food flav and presentation was on point! Venue is sheik and sexy.
Bathrooms were nice too, clean and smelling fresh.
Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.
Will defiantly be back!!
We had a good time overall. The salmon was a little under flavor..
Great ambience, great drinks, restaurant is beautiful. Wonderful service.
awesome food - fantastic service (Carlos was our server) - great place for date night - hanging with friends - special occasions!
Staff was so great. Especially our server Luis.
My boyfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day, and the bouncer or door guys whatever they were, were so disrespectful and rude. Worst experience of my life I didn’t even stay, we sat down started feeling uncomfortable and just left. Will never be going again. If you’re a person of color honestly go to a much friendlier atmosphere you deserve it.
Hip, sleek, and that’s just the eye candy at the bar. Food was good albeit pricy. Good drinks and music Date night or pick up...
Food could’ve been better.
Great place, and a great vibe.
Attended Ventana’s for the 1st time while they were serving their Valentine’s Day prix fixe menu. It was a lot pricier than anticipated for what was actually provided. The food was definitely good, but not GREAT. The server was very attentive and did a great job offering suggestions and explanations. The crowd was very mature but it seemed like they are trying to tend to the NY crowd from across the bridge.
Excellent food, great crowd of upscale people. Best place to go to show off the Lamborghini and have dinner and drinks.
I had a wonderful time at ventanas. The food was outstanding as well as the ambience. Service was a little slow but I think it was because it was a packed night. Will definitely be back.
1. Food took over 1 hour
2. Manager was rude and seen telling our waiter to rush us out of the table
3. Portions were small and overpriced
4. Took valet over 30 minutes to get our car
I've eaten here now a dozen times or more. The food is always excellent and I have yet to find a dish I was enchanted with; always beautifully presented and flavorful. The service is a bit off, often waiting 20 minnutes or more between courses. The waiting staff is very courteous and friendly explaining the delays which are frequent. Wekends it is impossible to have a conversation in the main room due to the volume of the live music and the frenetic atmosphere at the bar. Better to choos the side room if available if you want to talk to your dinner guest.
An excellent spot for the special night out with a loved one, friends or guests.
Never even got to eat. Arrived at 10 to 7 and was given the worst table in the place. Stuck in a corner, facing the street, next to a spiral staircase and totally in the dark. Asked management to put some more light on us, As they could not give us a better table. They put the lights up higher, and then lowered as we were trying to read the menu. Decided to leave and walked out! Terrible, unaccommodating staff.
Good food and amazing hosting
I’ll be back!!!!!
Great food fun experience
The decor and ambiance is nice. The food was good but I’m the pricey side. Overall a good experience
Food is absolutely delicious!
Our top choice restaurant. Also super ... get Dante the top waiter for great service. We are repeaters
The vibe was great, nice crowd, good music. The place itself was beautiful with huge chandeliers. I would definitely be returning. The food was great the only reason why I gave it 4 stars was because I asked for medium steak and it was completely rare inside when it came out. I had to send it back so by the time it came back my wife was almost done with her food. The salmon and tuna tar tar tacos were great.
Staff were very attentive, great vibe and setting.
Service is beyond phenomenal!!! Maria, Luis and Angel are amazing!! Coming back again for sure !
Love the food , service and the decor
I was really excited about coming to this place. I first walked in and the women said “Do you have a reservation ?” I said no I don’t and she told me she was only seating people with reservations. She did not give me an option to wait or nothing which was a little odd. Afterwards I made a reservation using Open table and head to her and told her I have a reservation. She just rolled her eyes and then I was waiting to get seated since I already had a reservation. One hour has passed and I kept on asking her if the table is ready and she’s like I have other people to seat which was totally rude. She kept on seating people that just arrived which I was really upset. I finally get seated and the place where I was seating was all the way in the back and it was really cold. We ordered food and a bottle of wine. The food was not the best because it was cold. My husband and I just left the food and tried to pay as quickly as possible we wanted to leave since we had a very bad experience at this establishment.
Bday ...food could’ve been warmer for the price. Waiters are too young and inexperienced. Drinks are overpriced and not enough alcohol in them. Don’t mind paying cause of location and ambiance but damn put some alcohol in. Otherwise def recommend
My reservation was 7:45pm by the time we get to the valet parking we were like five minutes late, so we met a rude hostess who ignored us after telling us your table is gone because you're late for five minutes, I'm trying to give my car to valet which took us approximately 10 minutes, walking inside the restaurant is like a minute and a half, I called before 7pm when I was on the NJ Turnpike by American Dream, from there it shouldn't take us even 15 minutes to get to the Ventanas, we were seated around 9:15pm, and for a waiter or waitress to take our orders took another 20 minutes, the funny part is when we ordered a bottle of Dom Perignon for 3 people that cost $390 and 4 people ordered martinis and margaritas that's when they started coming to our table to ask if they can helps with the food menu. I like the ambience for sure, but will think twice before going back there.
I wanted to love this beautiful space but it was just too loud and noisy, impossible to have conversation. Live music was great, service was impeccable, food was delicious but overpriced, I’m not sure I would rush back. If you up for a bar scene then maybe ok, and there are some quiet private tables in the front corner, but if you’re looking for a romantic date think twice.
Our experience was amazing as always
Ever since they opened we have been regulars
The food is awesome
Service is excellent especially with Dante
I would highly recommend visiting this wonderful establishment
Fantastic service! Lots of energy great vibes - definitely going back
Luis was absolutely exceptional. He really made me and my girlfriends night. Took care of us with whatever we needed. Also the food was amazing!
The food was amazing, but what really set this restaurant apart was the great service. Luis our server for the night was amazing. His recommendations of the menu were on point. Total reasonable prices. Loved it
