Food took a lot longer than normal but was excellent I think our waiter forgot to ring in our appetizer so it took longer than we expected but food was fantastic like always. Wish the service could have been better but we will be back again!

Food was good but not creative. Everything - entrees and cocktails - seemed a bit overpriced. Very loud by her bar area.

Great energy walking through... good food. Service was just okay for this level of restaurant. But understand these are different times.

Sushi was exceptional, lobster bisque was good could use a little more salt. Snapper was fantastic the halibut dish was a bit bland especially the mash potatoes. Carrot cake and cheesecake were very good.

Amazing food, service and decor. Our choices were a wedge and Caesar salads followed by crusted halibut and a burger. All were very tasty and served at the correct temp. Finally the Lemon Posset for dessert was crazy good. This was our first visit but will definitely return.

I ordered the red snapper and my husband had the sea bass. Both dishes were excellent! We also had the crab cakes and coconut shrimp for appetizers. Delicious! If that wasn’t enough, we HAD to try a dessert to share. The salted caramel brûlée was very good.

Caitlin was our server. She was knowledgeable concerning the menu and was able to answer any questions we had. We had excellent service. We were not rushed and were able to enjoy an evening out with our friends.

Our first time at Monterey and it did not disappoint! Our server was very helpful and friendly and gave great suggestions. Each item we ordered was prepared beautifully and the flavors were amazing. We ordered the oysters rockefellar, scallops, filet, and a number of sushi rolls. All were amazing. Definitely will be coming back!

Great service, awesome food, and we will be back! Try the pecan crusted halibut or the sea bass. Both were outstanding. Attentive service, nice atmosphere. A higher-end experience and so much different than the previous restaurants that were located in this space.

Loved it, my sea bass was amazing, best I’ve had in a long time! My husband got the steak, despite them being known for seafood, and it was hands down an amazing steak—cooked perfectly!

Took a little bit to be seated and for the server to come to our table, but was understandable due to how busy it was. The food was great however, and there were plenty of options.

Great ambiance, a very chic restaurant. The food and service was outstanding. The sea bass was one of the best entrees I’ve ever had, and I’m from CA where seafood is prevalent. We look forward to the next dinner!
