Always a fun place
We always make a stop at Abalonetti's when we are in town. Never disappoints.

Wonderful, memorable 30th
Our waitperson, Lindsay, was wonderful and the food was great. Loved the bread. She offered us an anniversary dessert and decorated it. We had a wonderful time for our 30th anniversary and had a great table by the window.

A Super Anniversary Dinner!
We were seated at a super little table with a great view, and my husband wanted to know if I had come by earlier and bribed the maitre'd! No, I just included a comment with my online open table reservation request that it was our anniversary! Abalonetti was a super place to celebrate, with a great view, superb service, and the food was delicious, too! Everything from the caeser salad, oysters, scampi, salmon and canoli were perfect! Thank you Abolenetti and Open Table for a super anniversary dinner!

Mom's Birthday family dinner!
Last year we brought 8 of the family (including kids) for Mon's 80th birthday. People were great, service was great, food was great, exactly the birthday dinner she wanted. Thrilled with the food and the ambiance. Mom asked to go back to this place again this year My mother felt pampered, the food was so good we all had to taste each others plates, and the people and service was wonderful. Even when we knocked over a drink and a few of the adults had a little too much and got a little loud, everyone was very gracious. This place will be my go to place anytime I think of Monterey-the wharf or food! Not pretentious, more of a great family place, very laid back with amazing food. A place to smile, enjoy family and community and relax.

We stopped in for a couple appetizers and drinks. Great calamari and chowder to keep us going along the wharf! Excellent service too!

Great little restaurant
We showed up a little late for our reservations because of traffic. Allow plenty of time to get into Monterey and find Fisherman's Wharf and park. There is ample parking, but it is a few minute walk to the restaurant. We were greeted with a smile and seated one row from the windows. The hot french bread was a treat. I had the salmon and the two others in the party had abalone. Our meals were good and the portions ample. The service was just right. Would recommend it.

Abalobetti's is definitely on my list of favorite local restaurants! The food was excellent and the service was pleasant. Very welcoming, attentive staff. Don't forget to ask for the local's menu!

Service was top notch, the food was very good and the ambience was fantastic. We were in to celebrate 32 years of marriage and the trip to Monterey was specifically designed around our dining here. Abalonetti's was more than accommodating. Our waitress even took our picture and provided top-notch service throughout the whole experience. We started with the Fried Clam Strips and an order of Crab Cakes. We recommend the Italian Sausage Sauté. A dish made with sweet/spicy Italian Sausage; sautéd with Roasted bell peppers,sautéed onions, marinara, penne pasta. Hmmm!!! We also tried the Steak & Fries ($16.95) with Shrimp Scampi ($9.95 extra). It was a half pound center-cut top sirloin steak – sautéed fresh vegetables and fries.

a gem on the pier
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The place is very casual and fun. We had many choices on the pier and are very glad we chose Abalonetti. The service was very good. I was encouraged to have the abolone. It was delicious. We will return upon our next trip to Monterey.
