Each person in our group enjoyed their food very much. Nice portion size. Appetizer and dessert were very good, too. Very good service since we had an early lunch reservation. Later on it was busier as we were leaving. Would recommend this restaurant to others.

We were all pleased with the service our waiter was on top of everything. We did not feel rushed nor were we ignored, the food for all eight of us came out at the same time and was not cold,outstanding! We never once had to track down the waiter for anything we needed he was always checking in on us. Great experience and definitely call ahead if you have a large party to give them a heads up you won't be disappointed.

Kind of a tourist thing. Fried artichoke hearts were the best thing we had there but could have used a more interesting dipping sauce. Linguini and clams was very run-of-the-mill. Shrimp Scampi was underwhelming.

Wrong side of average for just about everything.
How can a fettuccine contain mozzarella and not Parmesan?
Far better choices around.

We liked this restaurant very much. We had never been there so first I looked it up on open table and there it was . We were right on the waterfront overlooking a beach.
The salmon was excellent cooked in a blackened style which I like very much. We will definitely go back to Louie Linguini's again.

I made a reservation prior to going with my family of 5, while in vacation. We walked in and there were a lot of people but we were assisted right away because of our reservation. The waiter assisted us right away at our table and our bread came right away. The staff worked well together and the service was fast. My husband is allergic to shellfish and a hostess came and told us they will make sure there is no cross contamination, which was nice to do. The food came quick and it was the first time our 2 year old finished his spaghetti. We enjoyed ourselves, food was good. One minor set back was they were out of chicken and fries.

Originally, we made dinner reservation for 5:30 pm on Wednesday but the I noticed this morning that the restaurant cancelled my reservation so I called and spoke with Lance and asked about it. He kindly informed me to just make a reservation for today and will seat me so that I would get the points on open table. I loved that it was dog friendly where they seated us outside with a nice view and my dog had already eaten for if I knew, I would have ordered something on the dog menu (so cute). I appreciate that they gave. A military discount.

They served warm bread with whipped butter.

*Appetizers ordered:
Louie's Sampler

*Entree Ordered:
2 Cioppino (3 slice of bread was soggy, its normally served crunchy and I let dipping in in the sauce.)
Seafood Fetticine
Grilled Cheese

A truly lovely experience for my 2 daughters and I. The server was particularly impressive. She saw us struggling to make a choice with the great menu and simply asked us what we felt like eating. She ended up combining several menu options and the result was magnificent! Loved the amazing view, wonderful service and awesome biew! Definitely a place we'd return to.

We were impressed with the scenic view of the Monterey Bay at our window seat! The clam chowder was so delicious and creamy. We shared the cioppino and it was plenty for two, especially with the fresh french bread. Lots of seafood in a rich red sauce! Nice varied wine selection and moderate prices for Cannery Row area! Good service and nice staff! We will return!

Tables on balcony or beside windows have a very pretty view of the bay. Food was fair, sort of typical for a tourist area. Staff were great. Reservations definitely have to be made or you’ll wait at least half an hour plus.

New Year's Eve at Louie Linguini's was well spent and most enjoyable. The venue itself is well located in Monterey, right on the Cannery Row, overlooking the waterfront. Service was exceptional, our waiter seemed to "own" the place, he went above and beyond what we expected on a busy night. My husband ordered the Cioppino, which came with the crab legs already declawed, which made it so much easier to eat. I had the salmon, which was cooked to perfection. The view was really incredible, the place was packed with families and tourists, all enjoying the good food and warmth. We will definitely return.

I came here with a business acquaintance. After a day of meetings, we enjoyed the cioppino and blackened salmon. Our server, David, was able to accommodate our dietary restrictions in preparation of our meal, which we did not expect. It is good to know that dining establishments like Louie Linguini’s are willing to do this for their customers.

For a tourist restaurant the food is pretty good. They have a nice selection of food, so even if someone isn't into seafood, they can get something they like. Definitely good for families, and there were a lot of them in there even in the evening. If you can score a window seat, it is a nice view.
