    Came for our wedding anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. The restaurant has a great view of the ocean, very romantic. The menu was great, we got the $55 deal for a soup or salad, entree, and lava cake. Very worth it for a romantic date

    Food, service and atmosphere are great. The only issue is serious overpricing though honestly not out of line with the rest of this seriously overpriced area.

    Sardine Factory is our go to place in Monterey. Been coming for years and never disappoints or ceases to amaze. Went two nights in a row this trip, because one dining experience will not allow us to eat all the things we would like. First time we finally tried the cheesy bread. Don’t miss out. The abalone bisque is a must. Also are the medallions. Have yet to find a restaurant that has abalone other than the S. Factory. Marissa was our hostess and she also must be requested. Love this place.
