    First of all are table reservation was perfect with an ocean view. The service was excellent!! The food was great, my Flat Iron Steak was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth!! The manager was very professional and walked the floor to check on every table to assure everyone was satisfied with their experience!! My wife and I will certainly be repeat customers!!

    I enjoyed the low stress homey feeling. Service was fast and enthusiastic, and the food was good. Prices more than resonable, for the area, and the window seats have great views of the bay. I had the Jambalaya, and it was a different take on the traditional, but I rather enjoyed it. And they were very generous with the shrimp, which was nice.

    We came to Louie Linquini's after reviewing the available restaurant's on Cannery Row on our second night in Monterey. The view of the bay is beautiful from inside the dining room and it could only be better from their outside dining area. We actually saw a whale in the bay while eating dinner. All six of us had something different. We had the fettuccine alfredo, chicken gorgonzola, chicken Milano, fried shrimp and the penne pomodoro with meatballs. Everyone enjoyed their food and the sourdough bread served with dinner. We would definitely come back if in the Monterey area.

    Outdoor dining is a must as everyone is saying. The caper and picatta dishes are very nice. Desserts weren't so hot. Service was excellent. Friendly atmosphere

    The clam chowder is good but that is all that I could recommend. We ordered the pasta pomodoro and house salad topped with shrimp. The shrimp were awful, the kind you get frozen and thaw. I expected something like bay shrimp or something much fresher for the money. The salad was just a spring mix that seemed out of a bag and very small portion but that was OK since the quality was so poor I would not have wanted more. A disappointment Im sorry to say.

    My wife and I enjoyed the sample of clam chowder on the street so much we made reservations for dinner. She sat down at our table by the window with a great view of Monterey Bay. Before I could sit down a basket of bread was tossed on our table. That set the tone for our experience. It was a Wednesday night and there were many open tables but we were rushed the entire time as if they needed our table. We were seated at 8:00 and had paid the bill and heading out before 8:45 pm. The pace of the meal experience was disappointing but the chowder experience was worse. They run a bait and switch. The sample served on the street is not the same chowder served in the restaurant.

    The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived and it was almost like semi-private dining. Service was good but the food was mediocre. Pasta dish was dry and we were charged an extra charge for extra tomato sauce. Snapper Piccata was a very large portion, but the restaurant wanted to charge an additional charge for all vegetables instead of mashed potatoes. They did substitute pasta but is was served plain without any sauce and again there was an additonal charge for tomato sauce. During our 5 day stay in Monterey, this meal was our most disappointing.

    We sat down and took about 20-30mins for our waiter to even stop and say good evening. And when he finally did, he just asked if we were ready. Took our order and left. I understand busy, I work in the food business and have for 15years, but service without even a "Im sorry for the delay" is unacceptable. Other than that the food is amazing and the views are fantastic. I would recommend to a friend only on the foods behalf not the service.

    I have been going to Louie Linguini's for a number of years, and often take visitors from out of town there. The location is ideal; the food consistently good. Prices are reasonable for Cannery Row, and the staff has always been polite and helpful. I hope it doesn't change, and have no problem recommending it to anyone looking for a good meal and a terrific view.

    I've loved every visit to Louie Linguini's. This trip we took our son for his birthday. I was disappointed they didn't have anything in place to make him feel special--a little cake, small scoop of ice cream, or the like. It ended our birthday dinner on a sour note.

    We were there during off-season, so it was quiet. I can imagine on the weekends that it is very busy. Very much tourist-oriented, but great if you have young kids. Menu is very seafood heavy, but their pastas were very good. The view is gorgeous, and our server was very good with recommendations and service was paced perfectly.

    We had a great time at Louie Linguini's. We celebrated our 6th anniversary with a weekend trip to Monterey & our lunch at LL's was fabulous! The food was very tasty, the service good & we loved the view of the bay. We especially liked the crazy stories about Louie, the funny photos around the restaurant & the life-sized policeman & Bruce Lee statues. We took several goofy photos w/ them & laughed at ourselves taking them.

    I ordered the jalapeño seafood pasta, had no flavor whatsoever... But the garlic bread was very good and the bowtie chicken pasta was pretty good...I also had to flag the waiter atleast 3 time and still didn't come over ...so I had to get up and get my waiters attention....
