Wine & Dine Like Never Before at The Cave
Hidden on the outskirts of Ventura lies a diamond among the rough in the industrial district. Located inside the Ventura Wine Company, you’ll find this city’s best-kept secret: The Cave. A place where amazing wine and inspired food takes center stage.
Since its inception in 2008, The Cave has been satisfying eager diners not only with incredible dishes and a wide selection of vino but with true hospitality and a welcoming environment as well. Whether you’re coming for the menu or the unique atmosphere, there’s no doubt you’ll walk out the door already planning your next visit.
Though the kitchen in The Cave is small, the flavors are immense. They offer multiple menus, Happy Hour, Lunch and Dinner, and Dessert, fulfilling all of your wildest foodie fantasies.
Happy hour starts at 3:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and gives you a chance to taste the small plates The Cave is known for. Perfectly paired with your wine or beer choice is the Grazing Board, a classic charcuterie plate that boasts a seasonal selection of fruit, house-made pickles, toasted bread, and tasty cheeses.
For a full meal, take advantage of their wide selection of tapas and small plates to share with the table. This gives you a chance to try a little bit of everything including:
- Confit garlic topped roasted brussel sprouts with salty parmesan and candied bacon
- Palate-cleansing marinated olives
- Wagyu steak with perfectly seared maitake mushrooms
Their menu continually rotates, giving you a chance to try something new every time you visit. They also offer a tasting menu every Tuesday to see what new dishes are being created that week.
The Cave wouldn’t be what is without the wine. In the restaurant, they offer over 40 to try by the ounce or the glass but the vino doesn’t end there. Attached to the restaurant is a retail wine store with over 2,500 bottles to choose from. This special and expansive selection hails from all over the world including France, Spain, Chile, and more. Feel free to grab a bottle (or a couple) and bring them over for dinner.
If you can’t get enough wine and let’s face it, who can, The Cave has you covered. They proudly offer an exclusive wine club that gives you the My Cave Box, a wine package delivered monthly. You’ll get to choose three wines a month from top-notch red, white, sparkling, and rose bottles curated by their professional staff.
If wine isn’t your go-to beverage, worry not. The Cave also has a selection of bottled beers, champagne, and non-alcoholic beverages so everyone can sip on something they love.
