    Celebrating my wife birthday and our server was great. He put in and ordered our daughters food first, went over the whole menu and drink options. Brought in the birthday ice cream cake and prop. I can’t thank him enough. We will be back being locals in Camarillo.

    Ordered the ribeye, medium rare. First one was dry and way overcooked, more than well done. Second one arrived and was barely rare, almost blue. I ask for medium rare because in my experience they usually undercooked and I prefer a nice rare steak. I ate the 2nd one, even though it was almost not even cooked to rare. Staff were pleasant and friendly, but I was not about to send a 2nd steak back and risk retaliation.

    I was given dirty silverware and my steak was slightly overcooked, but it still tasted good and my silverware was replaced fairly quickly. Service was excellent and got seated very fast. The table did seem kind of dirty but could’ve just been the polish on it.

    We were actually seated in a part of the restaurant next to a large party, and it was very loud at times, including the jarring, "Surprise!", when their guest of honor arrived. It was almost in a separate room and our table of four was the only one in the room next to this large party. We thought about asking to be moved, but ended up dealing with it. What made the dinner very enjoyable was the service. Our waiter was super nice and attentive, and we all just really admired his positive vibe. The food was very good too, and arrived in a timely manner. Overall, great dinner, with excellent service. Maybe next time just don't seat a party of four next to what felt like a private party.

    my review would have been all 5 stars if it were not for the fact that the restaurant charges extra for bread at the table. Nobody does that today! The prices are fair for sure!!! No argument about that but a small bread basket with 2 slices of bread or a small roll is nothing! Imagine how bad this looks that I have to comment about something like bread instead of raving about the great food and service ( which was indeed good)

    Dined 1st time last night and food and service both exceptional. Prime steak was so tender you could almost cut with fork. Caesar salad dressed was home made and not a commerical mix. Was really good. wine by the glass options not too good but overall a great meal. did not like the fact that bread was not free and that was disappointing for sure. Thanks to Juan who took good care of me. entire staff including the ladies at hostess desk very friendly. View is also great but even if you are not at the window you can still see water.

    I generally have low expectations when I visit beachside restaurants. They often rely a bit too much on their location while food and service suffer. However, I was very pleasantly surprised with Aloha Steakhouse. The food was tasty (they definitely go for old-school steakhouse staples, which I always love), the service was attentive (granted we came on a quiet Tuesday night), and I was super shocked with how pleasantly affordable it all was. With so many restaurants becoming drastically more expensive lately, I left Aloha Steakhouse thinking I got a really excellent meal for a great value. The cocktails were generous, the steak was nicely seasoned and cooked properly, and we even had a dessert prepared tableside - all for roughly half of what I'd pay for many other steakhouses in Ventura county. I'll definitely be making an effort to come back any time we're in the area!

    Foods always good. Waiter was great because the kids just got engaged and we were yakking yakking and he gave us time to greet and talk before he came to take our order. We really appreciated that. We didn’t get the window table we had hoped but it was a nice table in the corner.

    This restaurant takes large dinner parties. The night we went they had a huge group that got all the seats with views of the ocean. The waiters were swamped and the kitchen was backed up. The food is good but nothing less than you would expect for the price you pay. This restaurant is not worth the wait or the price. I do not plan to eat there again.

    So many restaurants now have so much ambient noise it is difficult to have a quiet conversation. But not at Aloha Steakhouse! Even through it was packed, we had a wonderful booth with a view of the ocean and felt we were almost alone. The food was pleasant, and the specialty drinks fantastic. A great place to go for special occasions -- like my wife's Birthday!
