Always a nice place to go. If you get there before 5:30, sunset pricing is outstanding.

Had a reservation for 6:30 and we were seated promptly. Our hostess was incredibly polite and friendly and made sure we were comfortable where we sat. The patio was covered and heated to a perfect temp (about 70 F) and perfect for hearing the ocean. Our waiter was all smiles, very friendly and helpful. The food arrived after about 10 minutes (perfect timing) and was very good. Overall, the food was very good, but the staff was courteous, efficient and friendly enough to push the experience up to excellent.

Amazing food but even more amazing views! We visited for our anniversary and we got a table right next to the window over looking the small beach below. Watched the sunset and enjoyed our meal at a leisurely pace:) they were quite busy that evening so our waitress brought us out an appetizer free of charge while we waited for our food! Would absolutely recommend!

I love the Beach House! Staff is warm & capable even in the face of crowds that show up for the Sunset Dinner every day, which is the best deal in town & consistently great food & choices.

One of our favorite coastal places to wine and dine. We have our favorites so pretty much stick to those, but always pleased with the food and presentation...and the warm homemade bread.

New Year’s Eve. Great dinner. I had the sand dabs which we’re excellent. Hubby had beef stroganoff which he says was the best he ever had. Great ambiance right on the beach. Staff was great!!

I ordered the prime rib. I requested medium. The "lip" was good, but the remainder was well done and tasted blah. It was not worth $32.00.

Lovely location for our last night in Pacific Grove. We had reservations, but asked to wait for a window table when we arrived. The hostess was lovely and accommodating, and returned several times to give us updates on our request. The meal was wonderful--scallops pot pie was rich and decadent with juicy scallops and light puff pastry top. Surf and turf did not disappoint.

This is an exceptional early bird value in an incredibly beautiful Monterey Bayview setting. We like the Sand Dabs with a glass of Bargetto Pinot Grigio and the warm Golden Sheaf French bread. YUM, YUM! 😎

This restaurant is in a great location at Lovers Point.
We love the food, it is always good. The Sunset menu, must be seated by 5:30, is great for families or budget minded people. Either way the food and view will not disappoint. Excellent wine list and bar. Have been many times and we take out of town guest.

2 Ribeye sandwiches and 1 filet steak all on dinner menu, ordered medium. Came to table rare to almost raw. Filet sent back for medium, came back rare and grizzled. My meal OK,not great. But the others could not eat their meals and we left. Management did credit the 3 steaks , but we would have preferred proper cooking of the meat and a decent meal.

Way too much sauce and dressings used. Guess they figure if they don’t know how to cook, dump more sauce on it.

While the view is great and service good, the food was between nothing to write home about and terrible. The meatloaf in particular was inedible. Thank goodness they only charged us the happy hour pricing because it wasn’t even worth that. Really disappointed especially since I brought out of town guests.

I booked this reservation days in advance letting them know that it was for a local Family Christmas Dinner.
I had requested a window table with a view.
When we arrived the hostess had no idea what I had asked for and there was no table waiting for us. We had to sit in the very center of the restaurant with no view ambience.
The food was fair and the service was good but I doubt I’ll return as there was no acknowledgment of our requests; especially as we were locals
Very disappointed

the service was good, but overly solicitous ie fake. but I'd much rather have fake niceness than real rudeness, so that wouldn't prevent me from going back. that being said, we won't be back. we did not enjoy our food nor our cocktails. the calamari was ok. the wedge salad was ok, but the firecracker shrimp that accompanied it was gross- too sweet and fishy while somehow still lacking flavor??? the piccata sauce on my sand dabs was tasteless. they were good about bringing me extra lemon, but that didn't make it a piccata. the cranberry rice was again basically sweet but otherwise lacking flavor. the veg was cooked just right- bright and tender crisp, but tasted like it just had oil on it- ie ok. my husband had the rack of lamb. it was pink in the middle just the way it should be. but his sauce was not good either. it was very sweet and the marsala was overwhelming. both our sauces tasted like they'd been thickened with a lot of cornstarch instead of taking the time for a proper reduction. let me sum it up this way: all of it was decent, and everything looked great, but you can get a much better meal at olive garden! we ate at la mia cucina the night before. and there is no comparison.
