Roberto and Steve were great! Roberto was so kind when it came to trying to keep my toddler calm; she asked for a band aid and Roberto brought a band aid and a cookie! He was just on it! Roberto and Steve make a great team.
Beautiful restaurant, delicious and excellent quality food
After being seated, we sat for over 20 minutes without any service, despite several wait staff passing our table to serve other patrons. We tried repeatedly to flag down someone but the servers were expert in avoiding eye contact, hand gestures, or any verbal commication whatsoever. When we finally succeeded in grabbing the waitress serving the table next to us she gave us the "not my table" and kept on walking. After 30 minutes the "not my table" waitress came back to inform us this was in fact her table, managing to be simultaneously dismissive and condescending in the process. Lucky us! We walked out and had a lovely dinner at Sardine Factory instead, their service was excellent.
Dinner on our own after a day of conference.
Great experience, again!
Loved the food, our waiter and the ambiance. Cocktails were just ok. An Old Fashioned and a Bay Breeze were served in the same kind of glass and the small ice in the Old Fashioned watered down the drink. Still tasted ok but the food was the star. All courses were sea food and all were fabulous. We started with Oysters Rockefeller, then had the Crab Bisque. We had sea bass and swordfish for our entrees and they were cooked perfectly. We enjoyed every course!
Very good for a special occasion. Somewhat expensive.
Great views and better food than you would expect from a tourist hotel.
Incredible seafood, took my girlfriend for an anniversary date and we had a wonderful time. It was quite expensive, but the quality of the food was worth it.
Food was delicious and the view was gorgeous. Our server, Steve, was incredibly patient and helpful and made the birthday dinner a lovely experience.
Food was fine, but grossly overpriced.
Husband’s 43 bday
Had a great view of the bay, be sure to book ahead to get that.
Food was really good, seafood pasta in particular.
Food was great. Short Ribs are not to be missed. Salmon also excellent. Restaurant is quite noisy, with the kitchen open to the dining area. Excellent view of the bay.
Opentable led us to this hidden diamond..the most beautiful hotel and restaurant and best experience overall💗
Kind of cold in the restaurant and food was “ok”. Staff was great!
Food was great but restaurant was extremely cold and very drafty.
Bread was good. Service was good. Entrees not so much...
This place has great seafood, attentive service and a fantastic view. The prices are also quite reasonable for the experience. I would go back if I was in the area.
Great customer service and the food was delicious!
Great server and manager. Dinner. cocktails and dessert were delicious.
We were warmly greeted when we arrived, well taken care of by our server, after our meal the manager asked us if everything was wonderful, and on our way out the staff said goodbye and thanked us for coming in. So number one, great service.
Number two, the food was excellent. Myself and another guest got the swordfish which was cooked perfectly and was so flavorful. My daughter got the seafood linguine which was excellent. We ordered two desserts as well which not only looked beautiful but tasted delicious; a tart and also an apple cinnamon dessert.
I already have and will continue to recommend this restaurant!!
Wait staff member Steve was a top notch professional. informative, timely and attentive.
Also appreciated the genuine inquiry and greeting by the restaurant manager.
Excellent service and amazing food! Will come back again when travel here!
My husband and I went there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The view was beautiful! We saw river otters and a rainbow! Our waiter, Steve, was amazing! He gave us some binoculars and even brought over a complimentary dessert for the birthday guy! The food was delicious! I gave up meat for Lent and the restaurant offered me so many off menu options! We were happily stuffed after a beautiful dinner!
The quality of food was amazing and the service was just as good. The staff was very attentive and came by the table often to make sure we were okay.
Nice place, but the food was way too pricey for what was served.
Not what I was expecting. This restaurant is in a hotel. It's a beautiful room and I really have no complaints other than it felt like a high end chain like Scott's or Kincaids. We were looking for an old fashioned seafood restaurant.
Beautiful view and ambiance! Solid food and great service. Thank you Lorinda!
Schooner's has always been a go-to for me. Great, friendly service with an amazing view...you can't beat it!
Noise level pretty high once dining area filled in. Service was best in Monterey, food selection very good. Taste...fantastic.
Love this place! This is one of my most favorite place in Monterey !
As a celebration dinner for both our five year anniversary and our recent engagement, my fiancé and myself went to schooners and we were blown away by both the amazing staff and the food! The hostesses and our waiter were very nice, the food was delivered promptley and tasted great! I highly recommend the “Cast a Big Net” (lobster, prawns, scallops and mashed potatoes) We will be going back to schooners the next time we are in Monterey!
Visiting CA to play Pebble Beach and Spyglass. Great food, excellent service. The restaurant is very loud but it has lots of energy. Unfortunately we were there later evening so you don’t get much of a view, but I’m sure during the day it is spectacular.
We had dinner with friends and received exemplary service. The meals were outstanding - the clam chowder, lobster bisque, swordfish, sea bass, salmon and crab legs. So wonderfully delicious. We are planning to come here for upcoming special events with friends and families. We found on-street parking spaces to be plentiful or you can valet. All seats provide wonderful views of the bay.
Incredible views, service and atmosphere
The appies were great and the entrees rocked. Maybe the best dining experience I’ve had in Monterey. Brought my own 08 Silver Oak and they treated it like their own. Incredible desert too
Always try to eat at Schooners when in town. Service was excellent, view incredible and the food topped it off.
We LOVE this place. For an elegant and tasty dinner or a terrific breakfast. The view is fantastic, the servers are wonderful. We had April serve us the last two times and she was wonderful! Whenever we travel to Monterey/Carmel this is THE place we have most of our meals!
Fabulous and attentive service. Great menu variety. The man at the table next to us was very vulgar and loud. We would have appreciated it if staff would have asked him to dial it down. I felt badly for the woman waiting on his table.
