    The oceanside indoor seating was lovely with gorgeous views of the bay. Service was very good and our main courses were pretty good, although the steak came with mashed potatoes but no other vegetables. The noise level was acceptable, especially given that it was a busy holiday afternoon.

    Our waiter was a little too “familiar”. My kids (in their late 30’s) felt that he was rude to me. I just thought that he was joking with us and it didn’t go well. We are visitors who used to live here so not really tourists. Tourists might think this was okay but we like to be treated like valued future customers. My pregnant daughter in law ordered crab cakes. They were not cooked through. She had me taste them also. We did get comped but it ruined her appetite for the meal. I was disappointed. Thanks.

    We had a great meal for a last-minute reservation for a group of 6. The food was really good as were the cocktails. The service was really good but our table was not optimal as we had a pole in between guests. It's a great venue with wonderful views in a nice location. Will plan to go here again.

    I enjoyed my lunch date with my boyfriend, it was so enjoyable and we had a really beautiful view of the ocean. It was such a nice scene and my boyfriend has never been fond of the beach but he was impressed with the restaurant and the pick. I recommend going here and dining, I also recommend their clam chowder bread bowl because I know it is the best in Monterey!

    The regular menu is extremely limited and quite expensive. The ‘specials’ were all over $50. Ridiculous prices, no ambience, poor service. Tourist trap, will not return.

    The god was great, our server let down the experience. He was bullish and didn’t have enough time for us. We definitely felt like we weren’t his priority. I will note this is a polar opposite experience from the previous time we attended.

    The kitchen ruined a special occasion. Crab cakes were raw, halibut was overcooked and dry, msg from busser to server and Alfredo came wrong anyway. Extremely dissatisfied with our experience but the location was nice & the server was pretty good. Too slow overall considering we didn’t get appetizers for 45 min and even that was incorrect.

    Not what we were expecting. The drinks were terrible… the clam chowder we left 90% in the bowl as it was not edible… The only thing that was really good was the surf and turf. Even my daughter’s pasta tasted like mold…

    We had a lovely early dinner here overlooking the bay. Since we were early, there were quite a few kids so it was rather noisy. If that bothers you, try dining a bit late. The grilled artichoke was awesome as were the sand dabs. My husband had the cioppino and really enjoyed it.
