    Food was good. I order the jalapeño shrimp pasta but could not find or taste the jalapeño. It was still pretty yummy I just think it’s a little misleading. Maybe the jalapeño was blended into the sauce. It was a slow night therefore it wasn’t too loud. We were seated next to the kitchen and that’s pretty much all the noise we heard. I do recommend this place and would come back again.

    Didn’t feel like a unique restaurant experience. Since it was a large restaurant with many tables, I felt like I was eating at a chain restaurant. The service was fast paced, food was enjoyable, ambiance bland even though an incredible scenery outside. Just an ok place. I wasn’t wowed by food, service or ambience. Total tourist place.

    They offered a chef’s special and they didn’t delivered what was on the special. Instead of risotto with Kim Chee we got white rice. They told us they were bringing a side of risotto and then they told us they ran out. The server apologized. Food was good but don’t expect to get what you order and expect to pay the price of the chef’s special

    The service and view was great, but the winner of the night was the Scallops Pot Pie. It’s one of those dishes that when I come back to the area I will specifically go back to this restaurant for that dish. So good!!!

    The restaurant was very nice, I only have one issue, we arrived early and ask to be seated< I was told no do to other folks also having reservations as i did. Well there where plenty of open tables for our time slot 5Pm there was no one else at the host station so i asked if we can be seated at a window, his reply was NO because there where other reservations at 5 PM. It made no sense to us because there was no one else there. He said he couldn't guarantee us a window do to other reservations. I said if I was there at my reserved time and there was no one else there why couldn't he seat us any where we wanted, since the tables are first come first serve. He ended up seating us out on the patio where began to rain on us at our table. The waitress was nice enough to move us inside but NOT at a window seat. So needless to say our Valentines dinner didn't end up so romantic. I really think the host needs a little training in accommodating the customer.

    My only criticism was the music--sounded the The Wave station from the 1990's, a little bit too much 'smooth jazz' or 'faux jazz'. Something a bit more contemporary ambient would have been great as the location is so magical.

    Chowder tasted like it came from a can. A server passed our table and told us how lucky we were to receive bread because they ran out. 7:30 on a Saturday night “we always run out late in the day”.Lamb chop special was supposed to have a crust with beurre blanc sauce, instead came with a grainy sauce overloaded with black pepper, polenta cake was a hockey puck, absolutely inedible dinner. No one noticed most of our food was left on plate. Couldn’t wait to leave.

    I had the sand-dabs for the first time. They were prepared lightly breaded and had a lemon flavor, served with rice and vegetable. They were delicious. Our server was very pleasant, answered all our questions regarding the menu and the best wines to have with our meal. Although the restaurant was loud, it added to the ambiance in that everyone was having a good time. Overall, a great experience.

    The location of this restaurant was on the water, with beautiful views. However, there was only street parking. It was difficult to find a parking spot for a 6:45pm reservation. We sat at our table for almost 15 minutes before we had to ask who our server was. Once they arrived, we got outstanding service. The drinks & food then arrived, & it was delicious. The salmon dinner could have had a larger portion, but everything else was a good portion size. We would go back, but would most likely go early.

    Maybe not the place for a young couple. The food was good, but the restaurant was pretty empty so we could hear every conversation around us very clearly. Our waitress might have been new, but her timing was very poor. She forgot one cocktail and asked if we were done with our entrees as we were mid-bite.

    We so enjoyed our evening. Parking was easy and we had a nice walk around the beautiful coast at Pacific Grove before dinner. Everything was very smooth. Love our server and the other staff that assisted. Great recommendations for our champagne and entrées! Food was amazing. The even added extra whipped cream to our desert :)

    Beach House is one of our local favorites. We were disappointed to discover the Seafood Pasta dish was removed from the menu. In its place was an evening “special” Chipotle seafood pasta that overpowered the seafood flavors. Please bring back the original! The rest of our items including the delicious Beach House salad were great!

    Food was disappointing. Was seated next to a loud party of women who requested the heater be moved and now we had to wear our coats! Had the copping (sp?) which had large chunks of garlic and tomato. Would be better if it was cut up properly. Bread was good. Service was good.
