    Whenever we come down to the Monterey/Carmel area, Abalonetti is a must. Over twenty years that we’ve been coming, they never fail to impress. The staff is wonderful and the food is always hot and good. My husband had his favorite, Marty’s Special, and I had linguine with clams. We also shared our “gotta have it” roasted garlic!!Yummy! You have choices on the pier, but Abalonetti will always be ours. Sorry we missed Stuart this time!

    The food was fresh and delicious. I had the sand dabs and clam chowder. The customer service was great. I loved their outdoor seating area.

    I just moved back to Monterey after 3 years away. One of my favorite places to eat. Not just the food but the staff and atmosphere as well. It was a wonderful welcome home!

    I went to Abalonetti for dinner with my two young boys. The host quickly sat us and the waiter was very attentive. It was a much better greeting than at Fisherman’s Grotto, where the host host rudely greeted us with “No strollers, no crying babies, no loud kids”. I have no idea if he ever actually said hi because we just walked away in the middle of his rant. My kids are well-behaved. Creep. Anyway, I appreciated it when the waiter at Abalonetti even catered to my five-year-old, who wanted freshly grated Parmesan cheese on his fish and chips! My boys love the food at this restaurant and tend to eat really well here. We come about once or twice/month.

    Love this place… every time I’m in Monterey,which is about twice a month I make sure to eat dinner here. Always come with my dog and she loves the burger from the dog menu. You can’t ever go wrong with the clams and linguine in a wine sauce….simply amazing. If you in the area make this your go too place.

    The best calamari that we have ever tasted. Clam chowder in the bread bowl was great. The waiter was fantastic.

    Average at best. I made a reservation for my husband’s birthday after a whale watching trip. The host asked who’s birthday it was and when we answered, there was no response. Calamari was good and came out within 2 minutes of ordering. Odd that it was so fast, but good calamari. Our waitress was surly and never came around until it was time to pay the check and of course she was nice then. Food tasted super bland, no flavor at all. Did not eat much of our entrees, got our check and left!
