the C restaurant + bar
Wonderful ExperienceI will start this off by saying I'm very stingy with my 5 stars. Perfection is hard to achieve. That being said The C came close. Portioning was spot on. Left satisfied. I had the scallops. Absolutely marvelous. My wife had the sturgeon. Sturgeon on a menu is not common and my wife raved about it. On a bed of lentils. Reminded her of a risotto with more tooth.
Service was remarkable. Pleasant, professional, unobtrusive. If Diane is working the night you go, ask for one of her tables.
View of the bay is very appealing. Makes the restaraunt feel larger than it is. Sitting next to the window you don't notice other diners necessarily. Feels more intimate.
Guitarist playing helped with the intimate atmosphere.
Would definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service and FoodWe took some out of town guests to the restaurant and loved our food. The service especially from our waitress, Diane was excellent she is one of the best that we have ever seen. She is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful with a cheerful disposition. The bartender, Luis is also great to deal with and friendly. We only regret that they took out our favorite wine, Estancia.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely EveningWe went to the C Restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was excellent. I am all about quality, not quantity. The presentation was pleasing and the ingredients were fresh with just enough spice. The waiter was a good sport and sang happy birthday to my husband when presenting our dessert. It was a lovely evening.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was great. TheThis place was great.

If I lived in Monterey, I would go back once a week,4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food on the Monterey BayWe love C Restaurant. We sit on the deck with our chocolate lab. Try the calimari with green beans and meyer lemons and smokey garlic aoili--delicious. Francesca, the waitress is very fun. The waves crash under the deck and the flame heaters keep you warm. We alway go back to C, when we are in Monterey.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back!What a great restaurant! We had a party of 6 and were seated right by the windows with a gorgeous view of the Monterey Bay! With such a view, some restaurants might take the easy way out and skimp on food or quality; not the case here! The portions were perfectly filling and the entire table was more than pleased with each of their meals. We've each vowed to come back soon. Salvador was our waiter and made our experience so much more personal and relaxing. Great food, great service, easy (free) valet parking! I had the roasted chicken breast and it was perfect. I also tried bites of the scallops and rib-eye and all was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The fondue dessert was the icing on the meal.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWas recommended by a friendWas recommended by a friend to check this place out and was glad I did!
