One of the best views in the Monterey Bay area. Beautiful ambiance, great menu and good service. This is real "waterfront" - "Ocean Front" dining. Located on the 4th floor of the Monterey Tides hotel, have already recommended to friends and will go back again for another try.

We enjoyed our lunch. The option of lunch or brunch was terrific. Plan on bringing my husband for dinner.

Our hotel on the 1st floor of this place was HORRIBLE. Hotel staff was great, but there were *numerous* problems with our reservation and room itself.

This restaurant completely made up for it all. The food (both dinner and breakfast) were AMAZING and worth every penny. We would highly recommend it to anyone who is traveling in the area.

This hotel is anything but a boutique hotel as advertised on the internet. It is very large and very busy with a generally noisy clientele. Location is great but overall that is about it. Three stars is generous.

We were excited to check out Vizcaino for a Mother's Day lunch. As soon as we arrived the hostess/server was snapping at another employee and the bar where you check in was super dirty! We should have left them. After waiting for them to finish their argument for about 5 minutes, we were finally seated. We were seated for 15 minutes before anyone came to take our drinks order. I had to flag down a busboy to take our beverage order. We had a great table with stunning views of the water! The food was super boring and more American than the website PR lead us to believe. They added on a item to the check but we didn't notice until we got to the car and had no desire to go back and deal with the poor service any longer. The lobby of this hotel also has the amazing views and a bar. We'll def check it out because how hard can it be to mess up a glass of wine, but will not be returning to this restaurant.

View was great and menu was nicely crafted.

Service was almost non-existent. Didn't get water refill until 5 minutes before the bill came. Never received mimosa we ordered. Server had no personality or professional training.

Worse off, the food was subpar across the board. Eggs Benedict was slaughtered... Hollandaise was "scrambled". Eggs overcooked. Bananas "foster" french toast was merely french toast with raw bananas and pecans. Omelette had eggs overcooked and breakfast quesadilla was a pinner ham and cheese in a tortilla with ramekins of guac and sour cream.

Overall a great concept with horrible execution.

Did Sunday brunch and the were very accommodating with our large family (18). We felt special as we got the long large table that seated 12 adults while the young ones had their own table. The views of Monterey were beautiful which went nicely with our brunch. The menu had a wide variety of breakfast and lunch dishes. We shared and all were tasty! The service was great too. The kids got their dishes quick and following suit the adults did too. The prices were reasonable as well.

We were very disappointed with the food, selected for our lunch. The best part of our experience was the view and the accommodating staff.

Had a very nice experience overall.
Although only a few people were seated at their tables and 1 other party waiting, I needed to remind the hostess that I had a reservation twice before she seated us. Which I felt I needed to do being that she was being casual about attending the hostess desk with no one there, Many tables available and still not attending to us when we had a reservation at 7 pm.
After that It was a very pleasant dinner and Wonderful view of the sunset. :D

We had the steak which was grilled perfect. The sides (asparagus and mashed potatoes) were cold. Our desert the creme brûlée came also cold. The wine by the glass we would like (9$) was no longer available. So the waitress brought us two glasses red wine for 15$ each. Which was not particularly. Too expensive for that bad service.

The place is beautiful, the food is good, and our server was very nice. The place is understaffed and it took almost 30 minutes for her to come by and take our order, but once we ordered the service was prompt.
