    Came in for a dinner reservation on a Monday during sunset hours, we celebrated our anniversary this night so it was important it was special. The views are breathtaking inside and outside. We ordered our drinks and they came out very quickly to my surprise. The hotel traffic here made me think the service would be a bit slower, but I was proven wrong. We ordered the clam chowder bowl and about 7-10 minutes later our main courses came out (everything was perfect). I fell in love with my short rib dish, and my girlfriend’s halibut risotto with shrimp chef special was amazing. We were constantly checked on (~5-7 min) yet it didn’t feel like too much, as they were very courteous in their interactions. I believe we even had the restaurant manager check on us who even was helping wipe down tables. We were wowed when our delicious dessert was complimentary. All in all I had a wonderful dinner and everything was 100% worth it. I highly recommend to anyone visiting this part in town.

    My husband and I have been coming here every time we visit for the last decade. The food is always delicious and the staff is always friendly. I usually get a dish with fresh seafood such as baked salmon and my husband loves their steak. Their chowder is very creamy and balanced so definitely worth a try as well!

    We all had the $50 dinner special. One salmon and two prime ribs. Salad was very good and the best part was the mud pie for dessert. Great views of Monterey Bay and the availability of handicapped parking was greatly appreciated. A fabulous experience. We have been coming since 1990 when we had our wedding planning dinner. A real 5-star experience.

    Service and food were wonderful. The garlic bread, cauliflower soup and homemade pasta were all great. Wine by the glass was fine. Champagne was very good. Old fashion with EC was epic.
