Really fantastic food - the best kitchen I've found east of LA. Great taste combinations, ingredients, and attractive plating. Great wine list. Fantastic service. Yeah, lots of superlatives. I was impressed. The wild scallops with forbidden rice were superb.

Thank goodness Sheila's was recommended to us by a local! Based upon the name, I expected a typical bar. Beyond surprised were we to see an enviable wine collection and culinary creations to match! We ordered several small plates along with an entree - each was spectacular. Should we find ourselves in Camarillo anywhere close to dinner time, we'll definitely dine again at Sheila's.

Shelia's is one of the best restaurants Ventura County has to offer and I'm thrilled it is in my backyard. Always enjoy eating there. The owners are wonderful, the staff is exceptional, the food and wine is delicious.

The food was excellent. Service was good, attentive but not obtrusive. If you like wine it's the place to go!
Casual comfortable atmosphere. Quiet enough to hear & be heard.

Great ambiance, mediocre food and service for the price. They do have a good wine selection but no beer on tap (fine for a wine bar). We will not go back.

Non descript on the outside, much nicer on the inside. But what makes this place spectacular are the low key/quiet atmosphere, wonderful food and fantastic service.

We went on a Saturday evening and the owners were there working, tending to the management and seating patrons. Also, their son came over and introduced himself. He's the chef creating the edible wonderfulness coming out of the kitchen. Their daughter tends the bar and a younger son buses and kept us fully hydrated. They all had a such a friendly, easy way with the patrons which made the whole evening that much more enjoyable.

Bottoms line . . . I can't wait to go back!

Food was really tasty, ambiance was nice. Don't ask for anything but wine or beer on accident did that and was not told no other alcohol, just handed a menu, made for an awkward evening. Service was mixed, sometimes great, sometimes weird, felt rushed, not sure I'd go back. It was a long overdue date night with the husband. Wanted to have a nice long relaxing dinner without the kids. Felt like they were in a hurry to move us along, though don't know why.

This is a hidden gem in Camarillo. The food is great, the service excellent and the ambiance perfect for a special occasion or a romantic night out. I had to try their special of wild boar, which was fantastic. Give it a try.

We met old friends and asked for a quiet table which was accommodated. We wanted to talk and catch up and wait staff was attentive but gave us space.
3 of us ordered different pizzas and all were quite good. The fourth had a salad that was deemed delightful.
In all, a very pleasant and satisfying experience.

DELIGHTFUL FOOD AND SERVICE
We went to celebrate a special anniversary and we both enjoyed everything about our evening. As their website states: “Sheila’s is Ventura County’s best kept secret for fine dining” and that is so true. We are glad we finally tried Sheila’s and definitely will be returning.
The wine list is outstanding and we had bottle that is hard to find. Pablo, the owner, took such great care of us all night. We shared the pear salad which was wonderful. I had the scallop entrée which was delicious and my HH had the duck which he thoroughly enjoyed. Pablo also made sure all of my food was gluten free which I so appreciated.

I have heard of Sheila's for years. For a friend's luncheon we wanted to go to a wine bar since our day trip to Santa Ynez wine country was cancelled due to the rain and mud slides. Service, ambience and food were extremely good! We would definitely come back.

Outstanding wine selection, excellent food and good service. Sheila's is a great choice for a nice dinner. A family owned and operated restaurant, Pablo, the owner, is well-versed in the wines he carries, Bertha, his wife, helps to staff and manage and all the staff is friendly and attentive. The chef, their son, does a great job with the menu, both regular and seasonal selections. Food is excellent, properly prepared and nicely presented.
