The surf and turf was the bomb.
Great service and very comfortable atmosphere.
Also very scenic.
A little pricey but we'll worth it.
Seafood and Steak restaurant on Monterey's Cannery Row. Wonderful views and location along the water. Food was decent though expect tourist level prices. Overall worth a stop if exploring Cannery Row.
Great food for adults and also a very good reasonably price quality kids menu. On holiday in Monterey with the family. Highly recommend the rib and shrimp combo. Book in advance and ask for a window table so you can watch the sea lions and otters swimming and playing.
I have never been disappointed here. Great food, service and ambiance (view of ocean from just about anywhere you sit).
This place was awesome. The view is beautiful. Food was great, even if it may seem on the pricy side. The cocktails were so good (I highly recommend the Ultimate Seafood Bloody Mary). Clam Chowder was hands down the best I've ever had! Service was on point, the waiter checked in every little while, cups of water remained filled and he always asked if we needed anything. Very friendly staff all together. It was my husbands birthday and they gave him an ice cream brownie, free of charge. When I visit Monterey Bay again, I will definitely be a return customer!
We Love the Fish Hopper, we even go to the one in Kona.
We have never had a bad meal, always excellent food and service. Great Cocktails
My fiancé and I came here for lunch and was not disappointed. The view from our table was breathtaking and the service was 5 star. I can't remember our server's name but he was awesome. We ordered the fire roasted artichokes and inhaled them so fast I wasn't able to capture a photo. For lunch we ordered the blackened salmon salad topped with crab- delish!
Loved dining on the beautiful waterfront patio! Waiter Daniel was friendly and knowledgeable! Food delicious. Appreciated that most fish dishes were plated with vegetables.
This place was amazing and would Def try again. The food was fantastic. I recommend the ahi tuna and prawns salad. The drinks were great as well and the scenic view of the ocean during dinner was memorable!
Attentive server. Beautiful setting. All tables w a great view.
Our friendly server, Hugo, in addition to making excellent recommendations, made sure that our orders were perfectly customized.
Our request for a table with an excellent view, we fulfilled.
We enjoyed fresh salsa with large shrimp in it as an appetizer and broiled local sardines, which we requested to be prepared without extra oil on them. Three sardines were served whole, we cut off the heads heads and tails and filleted them. They had substantial amounts of fish and tasted delicious, not strongly fishy, with the garnishes.
For entrees we had the cioppino which we contained delicious dungeness crab, large shrimp, mussels, and more in a savory broth served with garlic toast. The local white sea bass was firm and flavorful with excellent sides.
The brownie desert was cut in three and served with ice cream, so it was a perfect ending on our meal for the three of us to share.
We went to celebrate our anniversary and visit our nephew who lives in the area. They gave us the best inside table by the water, and the view was spectacular! The food was great. Our server was very attentive and the manager sent over a special dessert after our meal. We could not have been treated better! I will definitely be going back the next time we are in Monterey!
I take my mom here every year for her Birthday. You always treat us excellently. I appreciated the food, view and service. Much appreciated! thank you thank you!
The food was good and the service great. They even gave me a tasty free dessert for my birthday. I would definitely return.
We ate a late lunch at 2:30pm, yet the restaurant was still buzzing. Very fresh seafood and the abalone was especially good. We got an inside table next to the window so the view was great.
Service was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended if you just want to walk from the aquarium.
Everyone was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Our meal was outstanding and the whole dining experience was just wonderful.
The main dish (macadamia halibut was incredible). The calamari as an appetizer was horrible. It was cold, fishy tasting and very hard to chew. But the halibut made up for it. The dirty martini was excellent as well.
Found this place on Yelp while looking for dinner on a Sunday spent in Monterey. It did not disappoint. I recommend making a reservation as the wait times can be a bit high for first come first serve. Service was great, they sat us right next to the water. Drinks were tasty and above all the food was sensational. Both the steak and lobster and the Parmesan chicken were amazing. Will definitely be going back.
Beatiful seaside views. Nice atmosphere. Good service and food
Ordered med rare milet that was very rare. The garlic mashed potatoes were very dry. Menue over priced but your really paying for the view witch is fantastic.
Food is delicious! We sat at waterfront and saw sea otters swimming and whales breaching!
We always enjoy going to the Fish Hopper as the food is always good, service is great and very friendly staff. We were there for lunch and had a great lunch and highly recommend the Bucket of Fire Cocktail. Overall, it is fantastic!
Seafood slightly over cooked (dry).
Beautiful table with 270° sea view.
Food was amazing, service was outstanding, and the setting was very nice and set the mood.
Excellent service from reception, the bartender, and our waitress. We’ll be back next time we’re in town!
Amazing view with nice food
We chose this restaurant because it was in a location where we wanted to eat and it had availability. We arrived to Monterey after 5:00, so we couldn’t get a reservation at most of the restaurants in the area. This restaurant was not the best. You are paying for the view of the water. The staff was friendly. The restaurant is dirty. The menus were not clean (crumbs and a film). The tables aren’t fully wiped and the carpet needs to be vacuumed after each party. The view is nice, but the windows are dirty. For the lack of cleanliness, I wouldn’t recommend. The food was decent, but overpriced. I had included details in our reservation. They satisfied our seating request, but never acknowledged the fact that I mentioned this was a birthday dinner. That was very disappointing. There are so many other dining options in the area, you won’t be missing anything if you skip this one.
Just an average meal. Food was ok, nothing special. Service was great.
Food was good, but prices are high for amount of food. Beautiful views!
Just ok ..nothing special.. overpriced for what it was..
This is one of my favorite restaurants and my most recent visit was no exception. The service was efficient and friendly, food was delicious and full of flavor and the views in the evening are stunning. I can’t wait to go back again!
Overall, a nice meal!
The view from this great restaurant is very nice. We sat over the water's edge and saw sea lions, otters, fish, and many different bird species. The food was delicious, from crab stuffed mushrooms to the scallops, and clam chowder. It is a must try if you are in the Monterrey area. The service was really good and made the whole experience unforgettable.
$50 for a crab is a little outrageous. Easily spent $200 for lunch - didn't see the value.
Food was delicious, staff was awesome! Celebrated a birthday and felt special! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
Our party of 8 (including 3 kids) were seated on the deck and it was great!! Service was awesome! We even got to see a sea otter play in the bay while we ate! If you make a reservation (we made ours the morning of) they seat you right away.
As per usual, we had a wonderful time at The Fishhopper! Food was great, and we had a fantastic seat, right on the ocean pier. We got to enjoy a beautiful view and watch several cute sea otters, who appeared to be hunting for their dinner while we were enjoying ours. Since we were there for a birthday, we were even served a delicious dessert, with a portion fitting enough to serve our whole group. I can't say enough good things about this place!
Great atmosphere, amazing views. Food was outstanding, best clam chowder ever. Fun!!
The food was amazing, I’ve never eaten a steak that was so juicy and not tough. The waiters were very nice and well dressed.
