"My boyfriend and I stopped for dinner before a movie. We let our server know of our time constraint and she did an excellent job of ensuring we were done and out when we needed to be.
The food was very good and we both liked what we had - he had the lobster tail special and I had the salmon fresco.

"Fresco 2 is one of our favorites on the marina for good food and fun music, and the fact that it is a family run business. One of the Chef's in the kitchen is sure to be family, and, likely to come out and visit your table! We love spicy food and especially enjoy the crispy Jalapeno rings that accompany many of their dishes, but, I think that it is worth mentioning that this restaurant has many Gluten Free dishes to choose from."

"We were looking for a casual, classy restaurant the whole family could enjoy in Ventura county and came across Fresco II on the Marina. The food was unique, flavorful and reasonably priced. While they weren't that busy the service was quick, friendly, and efficient. The live entertainment was an enjoyable added touch.
Overall the food, service, drink and live entertainment were diverse enough to satisfy a wide age and palate range."

"We had brunch with two friends -- four people in all. Although the restaurant wasn't busy at all, our server was indifferent. We asked for light dressing on a chopped salad, and there was a pool of dressing at the bottom of the dish. The salad was soggy - we told the waiter, he shrugged and said he was sorry but didn't take it off the bill. The pizza was greasy and burned around the edges. The dough was tough and chewy. Our friends gyro sandwiches were in the OK range -- but the fries were not hot or crispy.
We were seated at a nice window booth adjacent to the bar. The football game was on and the volume was way too loud. Also, the bar patrons were as loud as they would be if they attended the game. In a sports bar, I'd expect this -- but this is not what Fresco purports itself to be.
A disappointing experience on almost all counts. It's a shame, because it's in walking distance from our home."

"We arrived early so we went to the bar and had cocktails and the bartender was excellent Once we where seated the waiter was Pleasant but he never came around to see if we need anything. I had to go to the front desk and ask for my bill. The funniest And sad thing was our waiter and others were all Up front talking."

"We arrived wit a 7:00 reservation and asked for a table outside. The hostess said ok, but we just need to set up a table. 20 minutes later, still no table, the waiter had just got to work and was not ready. All the hostess needed to do was say it will be about 20 minutes and we would have waited at the bar. We did get a great table outside with a very good waiter. The food was surprisingly good, I had a wonderful salmon and my husband the steak kabobs, both really good and an amazing cheesy garlic bread.
Will go back and try again.

"The food was delicious but there was just way too much of it on every plate. We took some of it home, but too much went to waste. The service was great. The location in a strip mall detracted a bit from the ambiance."

"This was our first time to this restaurant. The location is a quite part of the Oxnard boat harbor. Nice views and nice walkway just outside. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The service was good. The Mother's day menu was $30/person and rather limited. The food was not very good and somewhat tasteless. A basket of pastries was brought to the table which looked as if it came from McDonalds. We asked for their fresh bread which was very good. There was also a dish of "fresh" cut fruits as part of the Mother's day menu. Tasted as if it had been out for awhile. The champagne was a nice touch but took awhile to arrive. Like any special day occasion some restaurants try to gouge as much as they can with as little effort as possible so this restaurant might be nice any other day of the week but would not recommend coming here on Mother's day."
