The $79 fixed price is too expensive for one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert. The dessert (peach cobbler) was not good. The salmon was fine, but nothing special. The cauliflower appetizer was good. Excellent service. Nice ambiance.

My wife and I went on a Monday night and it was not at all crowded. The staff was very pleasant and went out of there way to please. I ordered the short ribs and they were excellent. My wife's steak was also quite tasty. I am familiar with quite a number of Herzog wines but unfortunately we did not find a new wine during the tastings that thrilled us. Oh well. All said it was a very filling and pleasant evening.

We loved the wine, most of the food was good, but not amazing. We did get our food changed when we didnt love it and they were very gracious about it. Service was friendly, wine staff great, wait staff was ok, but for the money I would say not somewhere I would go back.

The food and ambience are incredible. The best restaurant in Ventura county. For first course the chorizo tortilla was incredible as was the stuffed chicken leg for entree. The peach cobler was the best I ever had! The wines are from their own cellar which makes it extra special. The service is top notch and we can't wait to return!

We love Tierra Sur!
They do everything well: food, service & ambiance. We love coming here and we come back as often as we can!
However, the deserts this time were so-so. Wish there was a chocolate chip skillet cookie, or chocolate lava cake option.
Loved the wine pairings with the pre-fix menu. The staff was very tolerant of our children, which was much appreciated.
One thing to note: a staff member who gave us water refills touched the pitcher to our used water glasses and we had to request new glasses of water. Not a good idea to share guests’ germs during a pandemic.

Still worthy of being called the best kosher restaurant in the US. Really unique and diverse menu, and the smoked lamb loin special was a first.

This has been our favorite kosher restaurant for years, with truly outstanding food. We took our daughter here recently for lunch to celebrate her high school graduation, and I have to say that this time around we were a bit disappointed. Although what we ordered was generally very good (the smoked ribeye sandwich was wonderful), the choices were slim. The menu has been shrunk significantly down to a small piece of paper (fyi we had a regular sit down lunch, not the wine tasting). And the obvious other changes seemingly to save money were disappointing. Some of our favorite touches like the fresh baked bread with a dipping bowl of olive oil with rosemary and garlic--is now extra charge. Despite there being lots of empty tables, the waiter was hard to be found except when taking the order and serving the food. (Though the female busperson did come around a lot---with a unrelenting grimace that didnt do much to contribute to the dining ambiance!) Dessert is overpriced, as is a tiny cup of coffee for $5, but at least they used to come around and offer you a refill. This time however, I had to ask for a refill in order to have a bit of coffee with my dessert, and literally waited 10 minutes while staring at my dessert and empty cup. (This is what you get when a restaurant adds an automatic 20% gratuity to your bill....less incentive by the staff to provide good service). Sorry to complain, but for a lunch that came out to over $60 a person (after tax and tip), you expect a bit extra. We used to be able to rely on Tierra Sur to provide that bit extra for an extra special dining experience. We will continue to come for special occasions. Hopefully this is just post-covid growing pains, and they will get back to that level.

What is the reason we drive 2 hours to dine here? The most enjoyable, exquisite tasting and elegant gourmet dinner! The intense and memorable taste of every dish, classy presentation, and detail oriented service were superb, very friendly staff.

NEGATIVES: warning of limited dinner time duration is inappropriate, music from loudspeakers in outside seating area was too loud, selection of courses was limited in number, Sunday buffet is not served there anymore, prices are much higher than before COVID-19.

I would recommend it as the best dinner place in Southern CA.

My daughter ordered a Hamberger well done and it came more rare than she would eat. Didn’t try to send back because of timing. She didn’t eat her Hamberger.

We had a table inside and because of the hollowness of the space the rial ambiance was lacking. This might be quite different on the terrace, but we did not get to find out.
That being said, the food, especially the stake was outstanding. This was hands down the stake I have had in the last 20 years (as compared multiple top New York establishments). The rare was done to perfection, and the meat was exquisite.
We were short on time so didn’t get to delve into the wine list and the desserts, but the cocktails that were ordered were also outstanding.
Highly recommended overall.

we were a party of 3 my wife has serious dementia and is in a wheelchair and won't remember the dinner,my daughter had never been to Tierra Sur at Herzog Wine cellars before so I thought the experience would be good for her.I found the service fair,the diner pricing almost impossible to understand and the food way overpriced.We keep Kosher and there are no other choices of places to eat in the Oxnard/ Ventura area.End of story.I'm retired on a fixed income and would only recommend it as a one time experience unless you're rich.

We dined here on a Wednesday night to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It was a quiet mid-week night so we had plenty of space between us and other guests. At least 20 feet. We sat outdoors. The food was excellent. We thought it would be small quantities but we were pleasantly surprised. The ribs melted in our mouths. The cheek and tongue terrine was delicious and so was the split pea soup. Highly recommend. If you want a nice quiet adult dinner that’s kosher, this place is for you.

Had a very nice relaxing evening. Currently the entree menu is not large although it is
not run of the mill either. Interesting sauces. Would say the wines are a little pricey.
The staff was very attentive and exceeded our expectations. The tables inside were spaced very far apart which made for an extremely safe and relaxing environment.

Menu was same as we had had 2 weeks earlier on Thursday night. Boring!
Salad with green Goddess dressing- over dressed, special veal ribs - which 4 or 5 people had - all were slabs of fat, with too view veggie sides..a few corn cornels! The dessert was exactly the same as our previous visit ..didn’t like it then and didn’t like it now.
Need to change up the menu..or maybe we need to eat there less.

Such a wonderful experience all around. Our server Jacob went above and beyond, he was kind, receptive, and offered interesting information about the restaurant and winery, menu items, and wine details. We were allowed to take our time and enjoy each other on the quiet patio. Food was amazing!! Our favorites were the house made pesto linguini, veal chorizo on Spanish tortilla, veal chop, and lemon blueberry cheesecake. We ordered the wine accompaniment and all 4 were superb! Dinner for 2 was over $300, so very expensive but it was worth it for the all around great experience. Highly recommend for a nice date night.
