Great food and location too cold At night needs more heaters
The view and atmosphere was exceptional. The menu selection was perfect for a variety of choosing Great place to celebrate husbands Birthday
Was a little slow but otherwise everything was great. The short ribs - which we’ve ordered as room service in the past - was as tender and delicious as we remembered, better in the restaurant with real silverware
Change to the old menu and include some from Ducks.
Your menu is to limited and simple.
The detritus gorgeous and our server was terrific.
Everything at our brunch was pretty good, not exceptional but fairly pricey. I noted on my reservation that it was for a birthday but no one seemed to pay attention to this. It was busy so perhaps they overlooked that detail. The live guitar music was really good but a little loud coupled with the wave action so it was hard for some members to hear conversation at our table. It's a nice place to go for a beautiful view and decent food.
OUR FAVORITE PLACE.
SEE YOU THIS SATURDAY IS WELL.
THANK YOU !!~!
We came here on Saturday afternoon without realizing that the restaurant only offered brunch menu for the time. We ordered the Octopus Ceviche, Monterey cioppino pot, classic egg benedict, clam chower and fries. The Cioppino was great with fresh seafood. The octopus ceviche was ok, kind of bland. My daughter loved the clam chowder and egg benedict. Overall, good food with beautiful view.
Absolutely no selection very plain menu the food had no taste, when 3 people out of 6 don’t touch their plate something is wrong...
waiters are perfect chef needs help!
Awesome service and otter views ha . Best fish n chips my wife and I have ever had .
Great location and delicious food.
You can not beat the setting overlooking Monterey bay. Food was good, air clean. A special place for us
The meal was delicious, the service conscientious, and the view outstanding!
The seafood salads were generous with fresh crab, shrimp, and seared tuna. One person requested a salad w/o tuna and the server substituted additional crab/shrimp to customize the order.
The lunch server was impeccable and I will request her in the future. The four stars for service reflects a breakdown between the morning and lunch crew during shift transition. And, the morning server was slow to engage and offer drinks.
We were seated early, waiting for lunch hour to start, and it appeared we were finishing breakfast. Once the lunch server was told we wanted to order she was very apologetic and she did an outstanding job, including comping our shared dessert.
I’ll be eating at Schooner’s again next week!
Great service, beautiful views. Food was excellent.
Great food and wonderful views. We saw otters, oystercatchers, harbor seals and squid fishing boats while we dined. Everyone loved their dinner and our waitress was perfect, thanks.
Love everything about Schooners!! Best seafood salad I’ve ever had thanks for a memorable lunch outing !!!
We had the most amazing server and his name was Isnoel. We went back Monday and had him again as our server. The food was amazing both days. We had the lamb hash on Monday which was so good and something different. You can't beat the views either!
Great Vista, Service, Food overlooking Monterey Bay !!
A perfect 10!
The only thing comparable to the food is the amazing service.
Food was awesome.
Fantastic restaurant!! Experience from start to finish was wonderful.
Great view and service
It was a beautiful setting by the water. Fun to see the birds and seals (sea lions?) swimming just below as we dined. The scallops were so tender and the entire meal delicious! Will definitely visit again.
We went there to celebrate our anniversary, but it was more of a bar setting with a limited menu.
Best part was being right on the qater. Service was good and friendly.
The shtick is wonderful. However...Our server was amazing! She should be in management!!!
When we got there a bit early fir our reservation we were told we couldn’t bring in our little well behaved dog. Put him in the car and we’re seated. When we asked if we could have a heat lamp we were told no because the fire department disallows it. Halfway thru dinner we talked with a man who was bringing in his dog. It was not a service animal - nothing that said so and didn’t behave like one. They were seated and kept their dog. We also saw several tables getting heat lamps set up. We were told by our waiter they changed the policy suddenly. I asked to see the manager when we received the check. He would not budge on the dog issue saying the other dog may be a service animal. He said the heat lamp was a miscommunication. I had to ask him to make it right for us by removing some charges from our bill, which he did but rather reluctantly. Maybe covid has rattled them but they need to get their policies figured out.
We made a reservation ahead of time and were seated promptly. Felt very safe sitting outdoors amidst COVID social-distancing measures. All staff were extremely helpful and kind. You can't beat the location - full views of the bay. Food was delicious. We had the seafood salad, cioppino, swordfish BLT, muscles, and kids spaghetti. It's a pricey spot but prime real estate and food are worth it. Would absolutely come back again.
You can't find a more beautiful view at a restaurant, the food is amazing and the service is excellent!
Service and view was very nice, and the food was good
Food and ambience was amazing. However service lacked a little. I had to grab my waitress attention each time if I needed something. She didn't bother checking on us to make sure everything was okay. I had also requested for a birthday dessert prior to being seated for my friend, which they forgot and I had to scribble that message on the check.
Love love love this place!!! The food ( our favorite their seafood trio salad is AMAZING)! Clam chowder awesome and warm hot bread 🥖- ohhhh I’ve so missed that!! The view is second to none! Great food and great view! Yes it exists at schooners!! 🙌🏼💗💝
Great restaurant with excellent service and the food was delicious. Refills on our drinks were very timely, and the ambience was superb!
It’s a great place to see the waterfront views and enjoy a drink.
Considering we visited during Covid, the service was good and very attentive. They had plenty of warmers outside to keep everyone comfortable even while dinning outside. Food was well prepared and delicious. We will definitely go back when is the area.
Beautiful location, fresh fish, delicious salads, and outstanding service.
