Westside Cellar - Ventura, CA

I stumbled upon a Ventura County Dining Guide some time ago and it got me thinking... Suppose, I ate my way through the County and then blogged about it? Novel idea! Next stop - Westside Cellar on Main Street.

Basically a one room dining area. Quaint, but lovely.

Tasty bread, served with tapanade and butter.

Creamy Tomato Soup was very filling! So much so, I had to stop otherwise my appetite would be ruined for my main - and dessert.

Market Greens - very fresh and beautiful.

Viola! Fish special - Salmon with a gift shrimp on top. The sauce was a light citrus sauce and worked perfectly with the salmon. It was cooked to perfection. Best salmon I have had in a long time!

Filet Mignon with a gorgonzola broiled on top. Vegetables with cooked nicely with balsamic and there was a pesto wash, creating a very pretty plate! Yum.

When there is Creme Brulee I must have it. This was not the best but a little sugar at the end of a protein heavy meal is a good thing!

No alcohol on this review so the bill was very respectable. $70 is a steal in my mind. The food was delicious and the server was a doll. I would return and give it another go.
