We were eating at Ventura's at the time of this incident. It was handled as quickly as possible. It was an unfortunate situation and no fault of the management.

I was also eating in Ventura's at the time of this incident. As with the others commenting, I felt that the situation was handled as well as it could be under the circumstances. In no way did I feel threatened. The bat was flying in circles--he wanted out as badly as the patrons and management wanted him out. It was an unfortunate situation that could happen anywhere.

I am an employee at Ventura's and have been for the last 2 years. Never has a situation like this occurred and never have we had a bad health department visit. This situation was out of our control and we handled it the best and fastest way we could have. I don't feel my management team was rude. They are humble people and care not only for their customers but employees as well. For the past 29 years they have humbly served great food and service to Victoria and will continue to do so! We are a strong company and will remain to get stronger. Come by and let us show you what Ventura's is all about!! Thank you to all of our supporting patrons!

Sorry, i was in the restaurant also and the manager did handle the situation very well. After not getting a free meal molina said he was gonna call the news. Its crazy how far people would go to get a free meal. Sorry molina but you cant get out of a free meal after you licked the plate clean. The bat incident was a simple accident and Mr.molina was out to get free food and that's wrong.

We were sitting next to Jason Molina when the bat flew around the restaurant. The management and wait staff handled the situation very well. They remained calm and figured out a way to catch the bat. Everyone stopped to watch and duck as the bat flew around. Everyone stayed seated, only guest who left where the ones by the cashier stand. Some of them came back after the bat was caught. After it was captured everyone cheered and returned to eating. I was listening to the manager speaking to mr Molina and she was not rude or disrespectful. She explained what had happened and said she could not comp his meal. He then started to threaten to call the health department. I have a badly filmed video of the bats capture.
