    I was looking for a place with a great view over the water with a gluten free menu. This place fit the bill so I made a reservation. Unfortunately, it’s just not our kind of place - too touristy, service is good but feels fake. Food just ok, not great. But the view was fantastic

    first visit in several years; I had good memories from before, and this visit was the best so far - our server was friendly, knowledgable, and his description of the dishes made it easy to pick our entree. Fresh fish in our dishes made them exceptional - macadamia nut crusted fresh halibut was so tender and the perfectly paired with sides; the crab/salmon salad was perfect - the dressing was delicious and the fruit balanced everything out - I'd come back just for that.

    The view was beautiful. Hubs ordered the fish & chips- fish was served warm and fries were cold… decided to just eat it since we had already waited for about 30 minutes. The 10oz filet mignon was delicious and baked potato was piping hot! Interesting for such an expensive meal ($60) the butter was served in pre-wrapped pats….since the potato was actually hot the butter melted (yay). A vegetable would have been great to include with this meal. Sorry but we should have Kept our Grotto tradition!! Hubs said he will not be going back.

    Our table was amazing, right on the end of the pier with a complete view of the bay. Our server, Jeff, was awesome. Pleasant, knowledgeable, and did not rush our meal. Our group shared a bottle of Chardonnay wine, and several appetizers: Coconut Shrimp and fried calamari, and several cups of clam chowder. They were all very good. One of our members was celebrating a birthday and Jeff brought out a wicked dessert that was shared by the group. We will return on a future visit for sure.

    Obvious tourist restaurant, attracting as many walking by as people who intentionally go. Reservation was at 7, seated then, waited about 20 minutes before table service began. Not a big deal given the crowd. Food was fine, garnished properly, but steak was nothing special. View was amazing, moonlit bay, but don't expect it as a rule. Make a reservation, it will help you out.
    Fish HopperResponded on February 29, 2024

    One of our favorite go to restaurants in Monterey. Best clam chowder we have had; even better than New England clam chowder, yes I said it. This is our third time here and has been our best trip yet. Our server was very knowledgeable, Jerry is the best! He has been here since 1999!
    Fish HopperResponded on February 29, 2024

Jerry is indeed a gem, and we're lucky to have him as part of our team since 1999. We'll be sure to pass along your compliments to him. We look forward to welcoming you back for many more enjoyable dining experiences at our restaurant!

    Wow, totally not what I was expecting in a good way. We were close, had one in our group who couldn't walk very far and saw this. I looked at reviews and thought, yeah sure, but expected a total tourist trap. Everything was not what I thought it would be. From grilled sardines, to delicious chowder, fantastic sand dabs and my wife had a shrimp and crab Louie that was loaded with seafood. I would for sure go back if I were in the area. The fantastic views and lots of otters to watch were a bonus.
