Everyone was friendly, and the ambience was wonderful. Salvator was our waiter and he was very attentive and helpful with choices including wine pairing. I had the macadamia crusted Halibut which was the best I think I have ever tasted. It was served with sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and green beans with carrots julienned. I had the vanilla bean creme brulee for dessert and as with the dinner the presentation was beautiful. I can't wait to visit monterey again and dine here.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, great serviceCame here while on vacation and had a wonderful experience. Excellent food and service.

It got very good ratings on a couple travel sites so we decided to give it a try. We were seated at the window overlooking the water. All diners received a complimentary appetizer that was delicious. Both of our meals were very good, service was prompt & pleasant. Overall, it was a lovely experience. At the end of the meal, a red rosebud was presented to me by our server. Nice touch :-)3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were only in town for theWe were only in town for the night and found OFG via Yelp. The other Yelp reviews are right on the money - this is a great spot for some delicious seafood. No complaints whatsoever.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService was very good andService was very good and friendly and the food was fantastic. The view is great being on the wharf and teh restaurant has great atmosphere. However, somehow they couldn't find our Open Table reservation, which when I showed them the confirmation on my phone, they still made us wait until they asked the Manager if they could seat us. It was a little unnerving being there was no one waiting for a table at the time to begin with, and the restaurant wasn't very busy. But all in all, a great place for Dungeness crab for sure.5/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
