Very nice server, but a lot of large parties to attend to, so we got lost in the crowd. Food was fine, but everything felt hurried and rushed. Even took a long time to get change. Chalked it up to a busy President ‘s day weekend. We would give this another try.
Loved the waiter! He was great our drinks were never empty and the food was perfect! We left very happy and very full! I wish I could have taken all the bread home! I highly recommend eating here.
Fantastic staff, straightforward menu with classic flavor, fresh. The antipasto plater is a must as are the variety of calamari.
Went for valentines, had the lobster and abalone! So incredibly amazing, both dishes. Staff was courteous and helpful. On point in every way... and the view is fantastic. Don’t let the other restaurants hustle you! Keep walking till you see the blue building!
Classic, been consistent forever... They do squid right!
Typical of the restaurants on the Wharf. Decent seafood, decent prices. Service was excellent.
My wife had Halibut which she really liked-large portion cooked perfectly. I had fish and chips-thought they were quite average. We shared a calamari appetizer - also disappointedly average considering this is their specialty. Overall a decent experience, enhanced by attentive service.
I would try again and order differently.
Very good and reasonable priced meal. We ate from the Local menu.
We have been coming here for years (we live in the East Bay 680 corridor). It is a very dependable restaurant with excellent and moderately priced food and wine. A few days ago I had the very best grilled Alaskan halibut of my life. It was one of their specials and it rated 5 stars. It was topped with a savory lemon capers butter sauce and accompanied by fluffy and tasty rice and perfectly made Al Dente vegetables. I know the Warf is considered touristy but don't underestimate the seafood offered at the local restaurants. Besides, who doesn't like to eat on the Monterey Bay!!??
fun location, good apps, below average calamari, no taste whatsoever. Service super friendly and helpful.
My husband said the halibut was the best he can recall eating. I had excellent calimari. We loved the food and have been eating at Abalonetti whenever we visit Monterey. Highly recommended.
Lovely spot among the crowds. Great service, and nice lunch. Fantastic sardines!!!
One of our favorite restaurants.
Meh just meh. Would have rather gone somewhere a little nicer and spent a little more at the price we finished with. Oh well it was ok. But just ok.
Awesome place to hit while in Monterey from out of town
one dish did not come till 30 min after all the others, thought he forgot to order. a waiter shoud always come to the table and say its on the way, or whatever, to let the diner know it still is working. Not a word was said. when the mussels and clams dish came it was a very small order which is surprising for this restaurant. would not order that dish again.
