I went to the Beach House with my husband to celebrate his birthday. This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions or when we have family/friends visiting. We had an appetizer, soup, entree, wine, and dessert for less than $90 with tip! The view is gorgeous and the food is delicious. Highly recommended.

I was very impressed with the overall experience of dining in your facility. I took my Mom there for her 73rd birthday and she was very happy with the great service and promptness of our orders being served to us. I felt that the price was a comfortable amount and that included a glass of wine and a scrumptous desert for each of us.

I look forward in dining in your facility in the near future.

Kindly,

Sheila G.

the food here was really good! Did not expect our seafood pasta and salmon to taste that good. The cuts of salmon are nice a fatty and the seafood pasta had a generous amounts of clams, scallops and salmon. The bread is also to die for. The portions are also very decent. We ordered an appetizer and 2 entrees and we couldn't finish it all. Had enough to pack for another meal.

Will definitely be coming back.

We had a relatively new server but I don't think it was all on her. The staff really was quite pleasant and made the service faults easy to forgive. Really, the problem was with the basics: The salad arrived after the entrees and neither of our entrees was hot. But I'm willing to overlook what could have been simply and off-night and will return to try it again. The views are simply too stunning to not go back. Next time we will stick to the seafood entrees.

We are local and often enjoy taking visitors to the Beach House. The food is reliably good; its main asset is the wonderful view. Wish it were open for lunch. In winter, when it's dark too early to have dinner there, we tend to go elsewhere because the view is the main attraction. The noise level is a downside for us. We've sometimes found the patio seating less noisy.

I recently brought a group of friends to celebrate a special birthday. The sunset dinner menu is the best value around! Although the sunset menu is fairly small, there are enough dishes to please most. I highly recommend the sand dabs. I have ordered this several times. Always consistently good! My husband loves the meatloaf. The firecracker shrimp are excellent as well as the calimari. This restaurant is a Pacific Grove treasure!

We celebrated my birthday at The Beach House. The view was 10/10! The calamari was great. Unfortunately, my salad was soggy and my entree (mahi-mahi) was very disappointing-overcooked and salty. My cocktail the PG-77 (a take on the French 75) was not good. It was tart (that's ok) but also bitter. It was unbalanced and not tasty. The busboy was very attentive but our server was not. He didn't visit our table for the first 20 minutes. He was not helpful with the menu and seemed uninterested. He didn't offer pepper for my salad but when I asked for it, he pointed to the pepper shaker was on the table. Overall it was a sad experience.

Hostess ruined the entire experience. We had a reservation and 30min later were sat at a table that was open the entire time. Hostess was very disorganized, kept complaining to customers about how busy she was but couldn’t seem to seat anyone in the several open tables because she just wanted to complain. When a table was finally ready, she literally SCREAMED their name several times even tho they were standing in front of her and had talked to her just before that. To which the guest SCREAMED back “HERE”. All the guests were frustrated and disappointed in her lack of professionalism. Once seated, our waitress was decent, food was good, but tables were sticky and glasses smelled like strong Clorox. I’d find a different place next time. Getting a new hostess would do WONDERS for this restaurant.

We are locals and have had dinner at the Beach House several times. The food is quite good, but the noise level is deafening and the service is not very good. On our recent visit, we waited and waited to see a server and to get a menu, and once we had eaten, it was very obvious they couldn't wait to flip the table.

We had a reservation for 5 but after 10 mins wait they basically told us they could only squeeze us at a booth for 4 by the bar. They could not guarantee that we would be seated down within an hour after the time we had made our reservation for. The hostess was apologetic and upfront about it (the good part) but this is just really poor management on the restaurant's part. So don't expect to be seated on a busy night, even with a valid reservation. The food is ok but really nothing special.

We are on holiday (vacation) from England and came to this restaurant the last time we visited Monterey two years ago. This time, our reservation was for 8:30 and the restaurant was not as busy because they don’t serve after 8:45. This was ideal for us and the room was quiet but had a friendly hum. The service was great: attentive without being too fussy. We had the salmon and the roast chicken. Really fresh vegetables, delicious sauce ( sometimes your American dressing/gravy/jus is a little more sweet than we are used to in the UK) and definitely freshly cooked. A great experience and when we return, we will visit again.

The Sunset Dinners are always a deal. I love the salmon. My husband loves the meatloaf. The chowder is good, not great. The Sunset Dinner price for a glass of decent wine was a bonus. We had requested a seat on the patio when making the reservation, but the last patio table was given away to the couple in front of us. The table we were seated at by the window inside was OK, and we were there early enough (arrived 4:30) to avoid the noise that built up by the time the restaurant was full. We love to bring guests here, as it is scenic with good food at great prices.

We celebrated an anniversary at the Beach House. We chose from the special sundown menu and both my sand dabs and my husband's meat loaf were most delicious. The salads were fresh and crisp. Our bottle of pinot grigio was a nice addition to dinner and priced fairly. The server was excellent and experienced. She was even kind enough to bring us a desert to share because we were talking about our special occasion.

Went to the restaurant to celebrate a special occasion and try to get familiar with the neighborhood. We got a wonderful table with a great view, and we were pleasantly surprised at the wine list prices - very reasonable. We enjoyed a shared appetizer and then awaited our entrees. The restaurant was getting busier, and after a time we experienced long waits to order a drink or get our food / bill. Aside from the sometimes slow service, our food was excellent and the view was worthwhile. We would give it another try.

Unfortunately for me this time was a big miss! I don't know if it was because it was car week and we were dining late at 8:30 or not. It just seemed like none of the staff was into it. Maybe they were super busy before and got burnt out. Anyway I have not given up on them because last time it was excellent!! The restaurant has a beautiful view and it's very cozy. Food was just ok.
