    Family dinner after a day in Monterey outing. Calamari was delicious, completely recommend it. Great ocean views, got to see otters. Server was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Drinks came in fast. Our dessert was the best part.

    Always great food. The chowder is amazing. If you have a little more money to spend try the rib eye platter. It doesn't not disappoint. But share it with a few people.

    Our server was initially very friendly and helpful - told us his family raised the artichokes some of us ordered. When asked, he said he could not give us 6 separate checks (a bad mark), but he could divide our 6 person bill so it could be paid in three segments, 2 credit cards per segment. That worked for us as some of us were ordering the same thing. But when the bill arrived, all charges were on a single bill. He seems to think we could go through the bill and allocate everything ourselves and then tell him how much should be on each of the three separate charges. Clearly that was not feasible unless he wanted us to sit at the table at a busy time and work avidly on our calculators. Then he stopped talking to us. So we ended up putting all the charges on one credit card and left feeling pretty angry.

    Overall was good just that when I got to the guy at the podium to check on my reservation he gave me table 34 which the hosted said great this is the best table on the restaurant and I thought they gave me the best because it is my Birthday as I mentioned in the reservation and the place was not busy, but once he hear that he said o never mind put then on this other table which it was the worse possible sitting they have, I didn’t wanted to argue as I was there to have a good time but the person assigning the seat ruined for us. I Felt discriminated.

    We have been enjoying lunch on the patio at Fish Hopper for many years. We are part of VIP customers. Sand Dabs our favorite and until this visit they have been excellent. However, this visit the sand dabs were very disappointing. Small, tough and over cooked. Should have sent them back. But, since it could have the season and not good time for sand dabs.

    We had the filet and lobster and macadamia nut crusted halibut. Filet and lobster was wonderful and great portion size nit skimpy. The halibut was cooked well but unfortunately, there was a sweet sauce over the whole plate which included sweet potatoes as a side and my Husband felt the sweet was over powering and made the side difficult to eat. The view was perfect. Cocktails and tiramisu were also very tasty! Other than my Husband's plate being too sweet, all else made for a very enjoyable special occasion night out!

    Though the food was tasty, it was cold. I don't mean cool. The mashed potatoes in the middle was barely warm. I don't understand why since the food was served rather quickly. It didn't seem to have sat too long but more like they used cool ingredients. Hopefully it was an off day.
