We have been coming to the Fishwife since the early 1990’s whenever we come to Monterey peninsula. The Key Lime pie has always been part of our meals. The desert this time had a very thick crust a small amount of key lime (not more than a quarter of an inch) and well over an inch of whipped cream. Unfortunately “Famous” needs to be removed from the title.

Very cute inside, attentive service and a great value. We had the Mayan style Baramundi and the fish of the day with lobster ravioli. Both were excellent. Cocktails were delicious -- hibiscus margarita and an old fashioned. Key lime pie for dessert was excellent. And prices were quite reasonable for this area.

The fish is super fresh and the options are interesting. The restaurant is a short distance from Asilomar beach so it is nice to either walk there after or before eating. The decor of the restaurant is old school which I like as it is obvious they have been in business for many years (decades) and spend money on the ingredients and service and not the latest decor trends.

We spent more than a hundred dollars on a really mediocre meal made with frozen shellfish. The service was just OK. Not good value for money. At about 21:00 they started to turn over the chairs. We still took a dessert (brûlée) that was so sweet we couldn’t eat it.

The menu variety allowed the kids and adults to enjoy their meals. The presentation of each item (Fettuccine, Barramundi and Ensenada) was beautiful. Our needs were taken care of, which allowed us to feel welcome. Parking on the street was nearby and easy. I'd return to Pacific Grove just to eat my way through the menu!

This is a good restaurant for people that do not want to climb stairs or walk a great distance. I've always found street parking near the front door for my Mom, so easy access.

I ordered a fish dish which was very attractively presented, and prepared skillfully with fresh ingredients. Needless to say it was delicious. And a generous portion, too. The server was gracious and attentive we will definitely be returning to Fishwife!

Loved the fresh raw oysters and the oyster dinner. In fact I would give the food a 5 had it not been for my daughter’s experience. She ordered the fettuccine with chicken and could not eat the chicken as it was hard. Not necessarily the chefs fault could have been a bad chicken but when brought to the waiters attention it was if he could have cared less. Not sure that’s how I would treat a group spending over $200 for their meal. Other than a bad chicken it was great.
