We go to Monterey Bay for our anniversary this is our 4th or 5th time there. This time we were greeted so warmly and told Happy Anniversary more than once. Our server was very knowledgeable about the dishes and attentive. This was our best experience since we started to make coming to Monterey an annual tradition.

We go to Monterey Bay every year. This year we waited too long and took an earlier than usual reservation (5) and were seated window-side. The view was amazing. The food was great. The service was superb.

The view of course is spectacular.... but everything else matches the view. Service was friendly, but attentive and as expected at a restaurant of this caliber. Wine list was good, I am not an authority but found the variety and price range appropriate. Food is the star - everything everyone at the table had was great, well presented, fresh and any other positive adjective you would want to add. I have only been here twice, but thoroughly enjoyed both times. We did spend a bit of time in the lower bar this last time - great inventive drinks, and a good music combo going when we were there.

Certain of our food was extremely good (the restaurant's specialties) - the other preparations were good but not too ambitious. Prices were a bit high.

Valet parking & coat check at the entrance. Staff was lovely. Not busy for dinner service on Wednesday. Appetizer sampler was delicious, crab cake + cajun shrimp + skewers of fish. Chimchurri sea bass was phenomenal, perhaps a little heavy on the chimichurri. Parm crusted halibut also great with an excellent sauce. Side of Asparagus was well cooked but lightly seasoned. Loaded baked potato side was incredible. Cold blooded cocktail was great, but the star of the meal was the angel food cake grilled cheese dessert. Very memorable. Views of the city were wonderful at 8pm on a rainy night.

Monterey Bay is an excellent restaurant for good food, service and ambiance. You will pay a hefty price; so, only a few will make it your frequent restaurant of choice.

We had a very nice evening there. Only a few things: first we ordered the grilled oysters and they came out raw and on the half shell - still not a big deal though as we enjoy both. I had a wagyu steak, it was very good, but I didn't think it was worth the extra cost.

Overall though, a very nice evening, and we'll definitely be back!
