Food was very disappointing - overcooked and not well prepared
They are getting complacent since they have such a great location
Service was perfunctory and impersonal

The yellow fin tuna appetizer was tasteless, and the honey wasabi for it was too sweet. We asked for soy sauce which improved the dish. The shrimp appetizer was fair, but the portion was generous. My date and I each had the salmon as our entree. It was cooked and seasoned well. The rice and spinach that accompanied it were very good. We sat in the dining room instead of the heated patio. However both rooms had a nice view of the bay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience, but we do not plan on returning.

 (Sacramento)·Dined on November 29, 2017

Food was okay. Maybe I was expecting the food to be as good as it used to be but you can never go back, only forward.

The service started out slow but picked up the pace after a while.

I started with a Caesar salad. I had asked our waitress if it had anchovies and she assured me that it did. Yep, it had ONE anchovy. My husband waved down someone from the kitchen and they brought us out a side of anchovies. Unfortunately nothing could save the salad. After picking off the pieces with red on them and the white tasteless stems it was pretty much boring.

Hubby ordered the surf and turf and it came out just the way he had requested.

I ordered the sand dabs but had them sub out all the accompaniments with smashed potatoes and creamed spinach and it was pretty darned good

I love the ambiance of this restaurant. It is located at Lovers Point, with a beautiful view of the ocean and Lover Point beach. Their Sunset Special Menu (I think that's what it's called) offers a variety of excellent entrées, if seated before 6:00pm, at between $9.99 - $12.99. I'm a huge fan of the salmon and highly recommend it. Reservations aren't required, but I highly recommend it, and if you request a window seat they well do whatever they can to accommodate you.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on November 20, 2017

It was very crowded when we got there and the hostess told us there was a 45 minute wait. OpenTable offered us a reservation spot in just 20 minutes, so we took it and it worked fine.

There was a wedding reception in a private room and that may have caused a lot of the noise. That said, it wasn't very loud given the size of the crowd. We were there well after sunset so there wasn't any view to speak of. But in the daytime or at twilight the view from here must be very nice.

The food was all well cooked and generously sized. I had the "sand dabs" ("flounder", to us East coasters) which came with a capers sauce. The sauce was very mild, though, with no real lemony taste. The waitress responded quickly to our complaints, though, and delivered a plate of lemons so we could season as desired.

The view is beautiful, the setting is wonderful, the food is reasonably priced. On the Friday night I went, the noise level was very high. The computer was not working all evening, so everyone had to come up with cash for their meals. The service was very slow because the waiter had to write out all the bills by hand. But they did give us a free appetizer.

What a disappointment! I had the pork ribs chefs special and it had been boiled and reheated and was dry and tasteless. the Salmon was also reheated and dry and tasteless. the artichoke was totally bland as was the aioli sauce served with it. I haven't had such poor food since London in the 70's 80's where everything was boiled. I can almost excuse one bad entree but the three of us were disappointed. I almost called for the chef to ask him to taste our food but just wanted to get out of there. A total shame as the location is special. We are locals and this was our first and last time eating here.

We booked this restaurant for Bob's birthday hoping for a wonderful celebration. The first encounter with the hostess was awkward as she didn't seem to have a table for us although I had made a special request. We were finally seated on a heated patio area, tucked into a corner. The waiter brought us menus but the special entree we wanted and the special dessert were both out - at 7pm on a Saturday! Well, the rest of the evening was a mixture of good and not so good foods. The arancini appetizer was tasty, but the sauce was so cold in contrast to the risotto balls. The entrees were very generous portions: Bob had the Steak and Lobster - lobster was cooked perfectly but one of the two filets was overcooked and dry. I scored with the Scallop Pot Pie - it was the best thing we had that evening. We each had a glass of chardonnay, but it was served warm so we had to wait to get it chilled. The finish was a Grand Marnier Creme Brulee we shared for dessert. It was delicious but (another but) seemed to have been done earlier and reheated unevenly as the carmelized topping was soft, not the crisp crackle we craved. Overall the service was very poor although the waiter was polite, he basically brought out the food and never checked back to refill drinks or ask if we needed anything. And lastly, no one even mentioned that it was booked for a birthday or wished Bob Happy Birthday, so maybe they aren't reading their Open Table reservations.

We had a great time eating at the Beach House. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The food was the best we had in Monterey. I had the clam chowder soap that I rate a 10. My salmon was cooked perfectly. So moist and seasoned just right. The key lime pie was just like you get in Florida. Tart but sweet. My wife got the sand dabs that were to die for. Needless to say, we are going back tonight!!!

Their sunset menu offers some of the best values in the Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove area. Great value, food is very good and for the crowds that the Sunset dinners bring in the service was exceptional. We were seated 5 minutes after our arrival, with an outdoor table and the ocean view was free. We can hardly wait to go back.

The Beach House at Lover's Point was a fantastic find. We were visiting Carmel by the Sea and looking for great restaurants. This meal was so exceptional, it was better than any of the restaurants we went to in Carmel--and there were some very good ones there as well. The food was so good and the portions so generous, we were stuffed when we left. Try the chorizo-goat cheese appetizer and the beef stroganoff. If you are in visiting Carmel or Monterey, take the short drive to Pacific Grove--it is well worth it!
