    This was our second time at Monterey and it did not disappoint! The Sea Bass with crab risotto was fantastic. Our waiter, Eric, recommended a dessert that was perfect! Definitely a great time. Still one of my top places to dine.

    It was our first time dining here on a “first date” night. We had went to the Palladium for a symphony and headed over afterwards. We used valet to park the car which was nice and went in let the hostess know we had reservations! We were seated within 5 minutes max. We ordered the Crab Cakes, a 6oz Filet Mignon & Scallops! Everything was cooked very well! The Crab Cakes were delicious and the slaw was nice and crisp, which added a nice crunch when pired with the Cakes. The scallops were like butter with a slight crispness on the edges (like I like) wonderfully seasoned as well. The steak was cooked medium and was perfect throughout! We had a very good time and we’ll definitely keep Monterey in mind when we visit the Carmel area again!

    Overall: very overpriced and uninspired. Starters: fried calamari was oddly glued together with cheese, avocado egg roll was not crispy. The scallop main course consisted of just 3 scallops, of which only 2 were wrapped in prosciutto. The ubiquitous risotto (appeared on 3 different mains) was like glue and overpowered with cheese. Saving grace was dessert - nothing special, but enjoyable.

    Our entire evening was outstanding. We were seated out in the heated patio along the Monon which was cozy and a bit quieter than the main area. Among us we ordered crab cakes, goat cheese and marinara sauce, sea bass, seafood risotto and the scallops. Every dish was divine and plentiful. Can’t wait to go back again as there were so many tempting options in the menu that I need to try. Rumor is that their sushi is top of the line too. I highly recommend

    This was our first visit to Monetery Coastal Cuisine since we moved into the area in 2023. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her sea bass, and my grouper was delicious. Waiter's wine recommendation was perfect for our dinner and one that we plan to buy to have at home. My wife and I have found are go to restaurant when we are in the mood for fish. Monetery Coastal Cuisine will be part of our restaurant rotation going forward.

The bar staff is welcoming and friendly. “Loretta” our server is the best along with entire management team! Yellowtail Sashimi appetizer and edamame are delish. Ambience is upscale environment yet relaxing and not uptight. We will definitely be back again! Thank you Monterey for your professional hospitality!

    Sat in a booth by what I would call “room dividers” between our table and the bar area. It was kind of cramped and the bar table was extremely loud. I think one of them had been over served. We usually sit at the bar for lunch and love it. And we have sat in a booth closer to the back behind the bar and enjoyed that. But food was great and server was good as well.

    This was our first visit and probably our last. I had the pecan crusted halibut and it was awful. My husband had shrimp pesto linguine and like it. Our bill for two with 2 beers and 2 wine was $160. Not worth what paid for. The dining room reminds me of Dennys with dim lighting.
