Wonderful views and ambiance. Food and service were very good, but portions were unreasonably large. We couldn't finish our entrees and noticed that others dining could not do so either. Great if you can take a doggie bag home, but for us it wasn't an option as we were staying at a hotel.
Loved our dinner here. Server Giovanni was very professional yet quite personable.
The seafood pasta dish was awesome as was the big salad with shrimp.
Wine list is good and nicely priced.
Can't beat the views!
We requested a table overlooking the water and the view was great. The food and service were excellent and we even booked another night for the sunset menu on our last night in town. 10 stars!
We had a window/view seat in the quiet alcove, as we did during our first visit last year. The sanddabs almondine was very well prepared and the pilaf was tasty. It's quite a good value at the early bird/Sunset menu prices. And the waitress was kind enough to bring a piece of the yummy chocolate, caramel pecan pie as a treat for my 70th birthday. Thank you.
Had a very nice dinner. Great ambiance, excellent food, great service. The ocean was fantastic.
The service was great, employees were all friendly, the food was great as always. ingredients in the food were fresh and very appetizing. views from dining room were of the ocean. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Arrived early and the hostess was able to seat us right away. Table we were taken to in the dining room was in a noisy area and I wear hearing aides so we asked for another table. We were told we would have to wait which we did not mind. We waited at the bar and the bartender was very friendly and brought us our drinks.
Hostess returned and took us to another table in the dining room ... still too noisy so we asked to be seated outside. Our request was honored and I thanked the hostess for her patience. She was gracious and never complained or gave attitude.
New seats were great, noise level low and view terrific. Waiter was fantastic and food was delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return...oh by the way this was Mother’s Day so my expectations were low on the scale as the place was packed. Top notch staff!!
The food was great just need a bigger waiting room or manage your reservations better
The other night was our third visit to the beach house. The prior to visits were very positive and 4 * overall. Unfortunately this last time was disappointing. The wrong appetizer was brought, the pork chop was dry and tough and the wine listed on the menu said it was from Russian River, which was the reason we ordered it, but after we had open and drink a glass we realized the label said it was from Lodi.
I do want to say that our server was excellent. It took quite a while to get our main entree but I do not hold our server responsible for that. In addition it was prom night so it was very crowded.
I might recommend the beach house to visitors because of the spectacular views and our prior positive experience.
I am not one that enjoys giving a negative review. Wish I didn't have to but that was my experience this weekend.
Adequate food in a stunning position. Food was just o.k., but the view was fabulous. We were seated on the indoor patio.
The food was absolutely spectacular. We were seated quickly since we had an Open Table reservation. The wait staff was excellent and the Ambiance was exceptional. We had been here before so we knew what to expect and they never let us down!
The food was great... love the sunset menu, good value and quality wasn’t comprised.
Great food at a reasonable price. Beautiful setting.
This is one of our very favorite restaurants. Anywhere. We’ve eaten here many times and love to bring guests. We arrived as they opened and had reservations by a window. Wine was superb; salmon and sand dabs excellent.
Everyone seemed too rushed or at least very little concerned about us. Food was okay but definitely not inspiring. This would not become a regular for us
My wife and I returned to Pacific Grove to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Staff from the Sunset Inn recommended dinner at the Beach House. We were so glad we took her advice...Everything about this establishment is wonderful. From the moment we walked in the door, we were accommodated in every way. Great staff, amazing views of the bay and beach and absolutely delicious food! The Beach House will be our spot for dinner anytime we're on the coast.
We were seated in the nicest section of the restaurant with a wonderful waterfront table. After ordering a bottle of wine, we were presented with a free shrimp apetizer. The food was quite good but not "5-star" quality. My only complaint was that the waitress failed to refill our bottle of still water until I called her over and asked for it.
Very average food. The salad was limp and overdressed. Pretty touristy.
Always wonderful at the Beach House! Our favorite is the Sunset Dinner!
Birthday dinner date
We were seated outside and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the heater! Drinks were great, I ordered an appetizer (calamari) and salad, while my husband ordered their meatloaf. Very nice presentation and nice portions!
excellent salmon, great service, nice Bianci Sauvignon Blanc, perfect # 69 BD meal
We arrived early for our reservation and asked for a waterfront view table. Waited approximately 10 minutes and were seated at a table shoved into a corner with windows on both sides. Cozy, but fine as it was a bit quieter than the other tables exposed to server traffic. Special cocktails looked interesting and I ordered one. Unfortunately the waitress had to inform me that they ran out of the ingredients to prepare it. View of Lover's Cove spectacular and were able to watch the sunset shadow Monterey Bay while we enjoyed the meal. Food was delicious. Steak was prepared perfectly with a great seasoning. Lamb chops were totally devoured by my spouse. Dessert was a Gran Marnier creme brulee. This one was correctly prepared and the Gran Marnier flavor subtle but distinct.
Great food and great service
WE enjoyed the sunset special, and the hostess was so accommodating, allowing us to use the sunset special even though our reservation was for 5:30. We were seated on the patio with a gorgeous view of the Bay. A delightful experience.
We had a great dinner celebrating my husbands birthday. The food was excellent. Nice view and good service. I would definitely go here again.
We previously ate at this restaurant two years ago and had great memories. We ate off the sunset early bird menu and found it to be great food, exceptional value and overall a great evening. Knowing we’d be back in the area for our anniversary we decided to choose this restaurant again. We made reservations and did note it was our anniversary.
When we checked in we were told “happy anniversary, but I’m sorry we only have a small table in the back but you can see the water from there”. We had requested patio seating. No problem we said we’d take it.
Once we told our server we were ordering from the sunset menu it was like the race was ON. She couldn’t bring out our food fast enough. She acted as if it was a real imposition to serve us. Tables around us were nearing the end of their meals but lingering over wine. We were given no chance to linger at all. Yes we did order two glasses of wine. From start to finish we were there 40 minutes. 40 minutes. Are you kidding me? Rushed like you wouldn’t believe. The diners who were almost finished when we arrived were still lingering when we left. We would have loved to order dessert but felt our salads and meal had been so rushed we didn’t even have time to settle.
I might want fast if I was at Chipotle, but seriously? At a nice restaurant? And despite the hostess noticing and mentioning our anniversary there was nothing from the waitress. I’m pretty sure she was having a bad day in general.
Will we return? Not sure. Gorgeous setting, but food was mediocre this time and service was lacking. A restaurant should not offer a sunset meal special if you really don’t want your customers to partake.
Million dollar view with wonderful service and average food at a great value. Hard to beat the Sunset price menu.
Our server was Rachel and she was just wonderful. All the staff was friendly and helpful
Great view, food and service! We ate dinner here twice and both times were great experiences!
Sunset menu is a decent value. Service was excellent, attentive but not too much so.
Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and great service. The views are amazing. The entres are fabulous and the staff is hospitable.
I was never in this restaurant even though I have been in the area for many, many year....I imagine I thought it was just a tourist area...but NO....it was wonderful! The view might be secondary to the food. Going back, soon!
We had a wonderful evening at the Beach House. With our reservation, we were seated right away at a great table overlooking the beach. Our server Deborah was excellent - friendly and efficient. We had the Sunset Special, which is served until 5:30.
The pasta was superb, and the bread was warm,
We will definitely return.
The view is wonderful - from their site request a window seat when you reserve.
The food is very mediocre, and service is quite pleasant.
The food was good, the salad portion bigger than expected. However I was most disappointed there was no mention of my bf's birthday. Why ask if this is going to be a special occasion if you're not going to acknowledge it. :( I even wrote in the memo this was a birthday dinner. So that was disappointing.
Beautiful dinner, delicious food, great service. Truly enjoyed it.
Not my first time, won’t be my last.
Always make sure my guests experience this beautiful restaurant💜
Always enjoyable to dine here...nice environment and a great staff, and plenty of delicious food
