Great seafood trio salad. My companion loved the crispy ahi tacos. Chowder seemed to have too much sherry. Bread was very stale. Tiramisu not worth the calories.
The view of the bay from the outdoor dining is stunning.
Service was awesome came back a second time in the weekend
Great outdoor dinner, enjoying the sights and sounds of the Bay. Heat lamp kept us warm. Service was attentive. The nightly special was Scallops and they were outstanding.
We had a lovely outside dining experience. Our servers were most attentive, professional, and personal. Our food was delicious and very nicely presented. Thank you!
Great place for a first Tinder date. Excellent wine list!
The service and foods are excellent. Also, great view next to the sea. I think this is one of the best location and restaurants in this area.
Great as usual
Fantastic view on patio. Plastic barrier on one side kept winds down, and with heat lamps, we were comfortable. Service was good. Food was disappointing for the price.
A little overpriced, very limited options, and waiter was inattentive. If you plan on having lunch it’s about $50
We are local and love Schooners. Food is consistently good, ambiance is one of the best whether eating inside or out. You are on the bay and views are amazing. Servers are always kind, friendly, attentive and very professional. Pre pandemic our fav spot was in the bar but I must say Schooners has done an amazing job accommodating the pandemic with their outdoor dining. Table very clean, safe dining is more than appreciated here!!
Thank you! Can't wait to eat at the bar again!!!!
We were running late for our reservation but they were gracious and sat us as soon as a table opened up. Beautiful views, great food, live music. Even got to see a few otters playing in the waves. Highly recommend!
View is great right on the ocean, they had live music playing our meals were good.
Always a great time here!
amazing restaurant with some of the best ocean views in California and the world!
nice view, arrived early seated promptly. main meal took a hour to arrive. people seated behind us loud. other couple seated after us ordered and finished before we got our meal. waitress very kind gave wife blanket due to lack of heaters and waiting for meal. could have been better.
Had a hard time finding the place because the address on this app is wrong when I click to open it in maps! So I had to call the restaurant and ask for a new address which made us late to our reservation! So please update the address! Other than that our experience inside dining was outstanding! From our waiter, to safety, to drinks, and the food was explosive in flavor and taste! Highly recommend you take your girl here fellas for a sunset dinner! 🙌🏽
Beautiful, peaceful seaside table with a view of the bay. Attentive, friendly service. Excellent wine and beer selections: Z. Alexander Brown Chardonnay and Carmel River blonde beer. The seafood trio salad had gorgeous shrimp, crabmeat and perfectly done ahi tuna. The Pub Burger hit the spot. Be sure to save room for the chocolate mousse cake!
Fabulous location, great service, but the food was mediocre. I had Eggs Benedict: The Hollandaise sauce was bland & the only side, home fried potatoes, were mushy, as if they’d cut up baked potatoes left over from the night before.
I’m a local and have never been impressed by Schooners’ food, but have returned to enjoy their location. From now on I’ll stick to a glass of wine or a cocktail with appetizers.
I’d recommend Schooners only for their location.
If you want great food and great service this is the place to be...
Always great at Schooners. Our favorite in Monterey
poor quality and way overpriced. Room service had outrageous cost during the pandemic.
Making up for lack of business on my expense????????????????????
Its a great place to enjoying the ocean with great service and great food. They have great cocktails and wine list
Delicious food! Loved hearing the waves crash beneath the deck
We went there for the weekend brunch; we ordered the clam chowder, tuna fish sandwich, seafood cioppino, fish and chips, and they are all delicious. The service was great, and they make sure we stay warm. I really enjoy dining at Schooners, and I will definitely go back again.
Great food and great service. Definitely will be coming back
Love the tri-salad, Christmas Ale and calamari. Service attendant was very attentive and courteous. We made a reservation and was a little late due to unexpected traffic but we got a table as soon as we walked in. We’ve been there the week before and received the same service.
The location is amazing and the food and service were great. Even though we sat outdoors, there were plenty of heaters to stay warm. We will definitely be back again!
Food was OK. Nice staff and good ambiance
We went there for Saturday brunch, and it was a pleasant spot by the water to dine outdoors.
The weather was warm and sunny when we went, but they had heat lamps nearby as well. They were taking all the appropriate COVID measures (scan QR code for menu, servers wearing masks, space between the tables). Food-wise, the Cioppino pot and clam chowder were a little salty, but overall the food was pretty good and the price was worth the view.
Food was great with the sound of the crashing waves in the background. Great getaway....almost felt normal amidst the craziness of COVID-19!
I still go to this place because of the ambiance and the food. But during my stay, I was surprised about the great Service. Thank you very much.
With all the limitations of dining out during the pandemic, Schooner's somehow made it feel like a normal, wonderful night out to dinner. The food, ambience and service was just outstanding (as always!). Can't wait to go back for another memorable meal. I highly recommend the Cioppino (sp?) and the short ribs.
Beautiful right on the water. Valet parking makes it easy. I thought a limited menu, but what we had was delicious. A great spot to meet up with friends.
we really enjoyed our dinner. we eat here everytime we stay at the Plaza.
the short rib was fantastic. service great and we were kept warm withe
gas heater....will come again.
We were treated like VIP s!!! Definitely coming back
Beautiful view, good food, good service. Very nice experience.
Thanksgiving weekend trip, good seafood.
Stunning setting for that special meal. A little pricey but you are paying for the view.
The ambiance and view are everything. If you are waiting a nice environment for dinner, this is your place to be. Food wise, there are definitely better restaurants if you go to Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, or Pacific Grove, which are all in walking distance. Overall, service is great, food is decent, and environment is amazing.
Our reservations at 4:45p allowed us to see the sunset. The restaurant has make it comfortable to dine out with the ocean view. Romantic. Food was delicious! We stayed at the hotel and the signs to the restaurant confused me a bit. Overall all amazing!
