Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service is wonderful, but it's especially nice to be able to sit down and not be drowned out by music. Great place to actually both have a good meal and visit with someone!"

  • "The food and service were both exceptional! The halibut was out of this world! We'll certainly be returning soon to enjoy the great menu items."

  • "I took a friend here for her 91st birthday. We both totally enjoyed our dinner. The staff was attentive and. the service was excellent. We had salmon and it was delicious. My friends only disappointment was that the bread was not warm."

  • "We tried out Steamer's for the first time and were pleasantly happy with the food and service. I think their drink menu could use some updating. The food was excellent- we both had fish and it was cooked perfectly. Service was great."

  • "This is a beautiful restaurant with just the right amount of noise to be happy but allow you to hear each other. Unfortunately, the food doesn't match the ambiance, service, and, most importantly, prices. It's food is OK but just not great. It seems like with just a little re-vamping of the recipes this could become a Foodie place. Their menu descriptions (and prices) lead you to believe you are in for a top-notch taste experience but it's just not that."

  • "One of my favorite places for lunch. Great setting, good service and I would recommend ordering the fish tacos."

  • "I hadn't been to Steamers since they were across thee street - mostly because of the difficult parking. I was very pleased with the menu, and the dishes we selected. I had the Blackened Red Snapper and my son had the Halibut - both outstanding. We also loved the Thai Mussels appetizer."

  • "The hosting staff were great and prepared with a table appropriate for a wheelchair. our waitress seemed annoyed and misquoted the available side dishes. The salmon was prepared well, the new york strip steak was under seasoned and undercooked (i asked for medium i got medium rare). The green beans that came with the steak were so over buttered all i could taste was the salt from the butter, versus the actual bean. I have not been to steamers in years but i have fond memories of when it was a shack in a parking lot before it became the Grill house. This all led to a disappointing experience, i will likely not return."

  • "We were looking for a nice place to celebrate a birthday with great food, wine and service - Steamer's Grillhouse hit the mark. We were a party of four and the service was prompt but not overbearing. The food was excellent - well prepared, solid presentation. Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "I do not mind to pay extra for a quality dinner, but this restaurant is one of the most overpriced places I'd ever been. This is one of those places that costs as much as it does by virtue of its location, not because the food is so great. We went there for a dinner, 3 adults and 3 kids. We've had the Wild Pacific Halibut, Sea Bass, Salmon. Kids had burgers. Food was just OK. Servise was good. The deserts was great, at least! We had a bill of $290. We are definitely not in a hurry to come back!"

  • "An old friend and I met at Steamers for a reunion of sorts. The food issue always consistent and above average. However, the highlight of the evening was our server, Ann. Ann knew the menu perfectly which came in very handy given my buddy Joe never ever orders off the menu. Ann was patient, made suggestions and tolerated Joe. The meals came and my N.Y. was just as I had ordered it and perfect temperature . Joes custom dinner came and Ann had knocked it out of the park. Again perfect. Ann stopped by frequently to check on us and made the evening memorable . If you go to SteAmers you must ask to be seated in Ann's section. She is the perfect server but I have a feeling she will soon. Do whatever she wants I. Life. Nice job steamers and Ann."

  • "This is my go-to place when I have people in town and can't think where to go. The seafood is great, they always have great fresh fish. Their ahi appetizer is amazing."

  • "I've eaten at Steamer's Grillhouse several times and have loved it. This time, however, (a Monday afternoon) the mussels were room temperature instead of being hot. They still tasted really good, so I didn't send them back. I would return, because this was probably an anomaly."

  • "This place has a "vibrant" bar scene but it definitely seems to be for the 40+ crowd. The food is consistently delicious and our server was especially attentive and accommodating. I have found the host staff to be a bit stiff but functional. The menu is maybe a bit pricey for what you get, but I guess the downtown location makes up for that."

  • "My wife and I had a pleasant dinner at steamers for her birthday. The food and service were very good. My only quibble is that like many restaurants, the wine has too large a markup. They did have some nice wines by the glass."

  • "My mother gave my wife and I a gift for valentines day. It was our first and only experience here. The food was horrible. The restaurant was extremely loud. I regret going."

  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants. In a town of MANY good restaurants, Steamers stands out.........for great food, exceptional service by professional servers and a good "italian" atmosphere."

  • "If you LOVE seafood you will love Steamers. It is my "go-to" restaurant when I'm in the mood for seafood. You can have a conversation there without yelling which I love. Food is always dependably good."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal at Steamer's. It's a good stop on the way back to the Bay Area from Santa Cruz or Monterey area. The service was prompt and friendly. The linguine seafood was delicious."

  • "They offered their wonderful chocolate brownie with coffer ice cream and chocolate sauce. Wonderful! A nice treat."

  • "The last few times I have gone to Steamers, I have overlooked some of the things that were not up to par, (menu has stayed the same for too long, served cold soup and main dish, main dish flavors were a bit off), because I have had so many good experiences there. It appears that Steamers is getting most of their business from their bar, so the dining experience has really dropped. Not quite casual/not quite fine dining., they are dropping into the middle ground or irrelevance in a dining market that expects more. They need to re-think not only their menu - (their small plate offering is one item- chicken skewers and the flavors are a little more 1996 than 2014 but the freshness of the menu. Servers and staff are excellent. Update please!"

  • "Been around a while, but not to be forgotten. Very good food, service to match, and pleasant surroundings. Bar is fun also."

  • "Love Steamers. It is almost perfect. On a Sunday night it is less crowded than other nights so the noise level is tolerable. The food is always great. The waiter explained every dish perfectly so there were no surprises. Wish I could afford to eat here every week...."

  • "Small problem with Table fold-up table extension flap keep collapsing on my client's wife - 4-5 times........... Also wine a bit too expensive. Spent $350 - 40% was wine costs. Prices not fully disclosed, as guest just asked for a good Merlot for waitress."

  • "Brought my friend here for her birthday. The food was excellent. Enjoyed each and every bite. Had the delicious Prawn BLT and my friend had the Salmon. The taste was superb. Also had a Bloody Mary and clam chowder (excellent). The server was superb. Steamer's even acknowledged that I told them it was my friend's birthday and our excellent server (Dennis) brought out a decorated chocolate mousse. So, with superb service and food it made our day very delightful!!"

  • "This a a great restaurant! The food is always delicious. The server was spread a little thin so was not always available. And the temperature in the room was a little on the cool side for a winter night. It was distracting. But everyones meal was wonderful."

  • "She had swordfish, that was good. I had the halibut that was fresher than the swordfish. Served with roasted root vegetables that included parsnips that I particularly enjoy. It was just on the near side of being done. Whipped potatoes were very good. We didn't drink alcohol or have dessert. Everyone was prompt and attentive when we arrived on a Friday at six. Wait person was excellent."

  • "We wanted good seafood and got it at Steamers. Both organic salmon and blackened snapper were cooked perfectly. Cole slaw on side was nice and tortilla soup to start was just spicy enough. Easy to make reservations and service was friendly."

  • "Was here to celebrate 50 year bday for friend. No acknowledgement whatsoever from staff, save the host who seated us in a nice table. Order drinks and apps but waiter failed to return for entree orders until app was finished, all the while we had menus in our laps... Salads came for three of the four of us yet my soup was delivered a good ten minutes later. When entrees came, two delivered first to wrong guests, again, two were left waiting for food. Very embarrassing, as I certainly cannot recommend this establishment for special occasions as they obviously failed when it counted most."

  • "Table was ready right on time. Service was Quick. Food Excellent. People were Vibrant Noisy. We brought a baby and did not have to worry about his crying, because no one heard it ! Dinner for 4 was $209. Good choices of Seafood and Land Lover."

  • "You can always count on the food being good here. Oysters and shrimp cocktail appetizers were excellent. We all had different fish and all was very good. Only food complaint was that the house salad was a little overdressed and soggy. We tried the brownie w/ice cream for dessert and it was great. This time the service was very slow. It was a Sunday night and fairly crowded, but not full, so not sure what the hold up was. It took almost 3 hours."
