    We've been to the Beach House several times, and will go again. The view, the food, and the service are all excellent. This time they had a mushroom risotto special; it was one of the best things I've had anywhere! Hope it gets added to the menu.

    We were a party of six for an early dinner and enjoyed our experience, but did think the noise level was annoying. The food was excellent and comfortably priced. The waitress was most excellent--very pleasant and helpful. Wish I could remember her name, but she was a gem. The views of the bay were very nice.

    It would be appreciated if the wait-person asked before diluting my remaining Arnold Palmer by refilling it with straight iced tea. In my case, the answer would always be "No, Thank You." Others might well say "Yes, Thank You."

    This is a lovely oceanside restaurant with outstanding views from most tables with protected outside dining also available. The menu is versatile and the food delicious. The tomato basil soup was outstanding, and our entrees were also excellent, followed by luscous lemon tart and pear cobbler desserts. Given the unbelievable view, this restaurant is a very affordable option for a memorable dinner. You won't be disappointed.

    We are extremely pleased every time we dine at this place. When we arrive we are warmly greeted by name. Alfie PM manager always tries to accommodate us by sitting us at a window table. Dona, our server, is very friendly and pleasant. Will recommend this restaurant to friends.

    I saw this restaurant on a website and read all these amazing reviews but it was nothing close too. Our server wasn't very interactive with us I would say- he checked on us one time besides taking our order and giving us our check. The food wasn't that great either. The view was really amazing from the whole restaurant but besides that I probably wouldn't go back again.

    I went here over ten years ago when it was the Bath House, and I guess I was expecting that same level of sophistication. The server was very nice, but didn't have the level of professionalism I was expecting. Another server nearly ran into to me and seemed more irritated than apologetic. The food was the best part, but it's a very safe and savory menu that isn't too hard to get wrong in my opinion.

    My wife and I were seated right away, by a window as requested in our online reservation. We came for the Sunset Special. The service was excellent and our wine and dinner selections were excellent as well. Will definitely be returning for the Sunset Special again.

    We take one vacation a year with our close group of friends so there were 10 at the table that night. The food was wonderful, with the exception that the two who ordered the escargot were disappointed. There is a full bar, one of the FEW in Pacific Grove. But the best thing was the waiter, Jaciel. He was on top of everything and PLAYFUL, which is very important to our group.

    We were in Monterey on vacation and to celebrate my husband's birthday. The restaurant was an excellent choice. The view from our table was overlooking the water, which was exactly what we requested. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. The food was excellent. We ordered from the Sunset Special menu and that was great. The Beach House was a perfect choice for this celebration. A very popular restaurant and reservations are recommended. We went early (4:45 pm) before the evening crowd started arriving.

    The Early Bird menu is so reasonable, you can't afford not to sit out on the deck and watch the beautiful Lovers Point view of the Bay and little Pacific Grove Victorian houses. Even on cool evenings, the surrounding glass and heaters keep the deck cozy. (And you can enjoy the music and ocean sounds as it is much quieter than inside this busy restaurant.) My German heritage appreciated the roast pork, smashed Yukon gold potatoes and red cabbage. Get the tomato-roasted pepper soup if it is available. A yummy dinner and view for the price of a mediocre lunch elsewhere.

    We went for the early dinner setting. The menu at this setting offered a wide variety for any appetite. Warm bread and butter was offered at the beginning of the meal. The meals served were very hot and delicious. Everyone at the table had something different & each had high praise for the wonderful dishes. It was a perfect size meal for the price. The service was excellent and very attentive. The atmosphere was so open, clean and inviting. We had beer & wine - which also was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant - especially the early dinner menu. Keep up the great work!

    We were meeting out of country friends and had a problem connecting with them. The restaurant passed on our message that we were running late - went the extra mile for us. Great view, food was fair, seemed expensive for the quality. The pasta dish with Portobello mushrooms was over salted. Extreme noise level, had a hard time hearing the person next to me. Great wine selection! The service was very good, despite the big crowd.

    The beach house has been there for a long time and used to be a fancy traditional restaurant for special occasions. We gave it another try this last weekend for our anniversary, but wished we didn't. I ordered the filet mignon which first came overcooked (I ordered it medium rare) the second time it was correct but I like my steak in one piece and they pre-sliced it. It was also obvious they microwave it. It was almost as if there is no chef there and just a few cooks re-heating food. Too bad, because the location is great.

    This restaurant has an "early bird" special for dinner & drinks from 4-6pm. You must be seated by 5:30 & order dinner by 6pm to get this special. Luckily the wait staff is flexible with this arrangement. We had reservations for 5:45 & were seated by 5:40 (we arrived at 5:30), at first we were given menus with full price entrees, we acted surprised & mentioned the 6pm "ruling". Our waitress changed our menus to the early bird ones. This is something that should be highlighted on our your web page for the restaurant.

Right next to a park and the Ocean that you could take a nice stroll after a very nice dinner! I would recommend this place to family and friends. I wish I would of remembered our two servers names but I can not. They were both friendly and helpful and delieverd great services. I am glad my boss recommended this place for dinner. I will return. My Basil Pasta was yummy and I added shrimp....! My friend had the steak very good also. We wanted dessert but were to full...next time!
