    This was our first time dining at Montrio but definitely won't be our last! My husband and I enjoy fine dining and have been to most of the top rated restaurants in Monterey and Carmel, and Montrio stands out as one of the best experiences we've had. The food and service were both exceptional (thanks to our server Concetta for her spot on recommendations). The management came by several times to check in, chat with us, and answer some questions we had about local wines. We even got to enjoy a fabulous Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah from Roar vineyards and say hello to the grower and his wife, who were also enjoying a father's day celebration at Montrio. Overall a wonderful experience, made even a little nicer because its not in the cannery row tourist corridor. Don't miss out on this when you're in Monterey next!

    The food was delicious. I had prime rib, spinach salad, and asparagus in place of mashed potatoes. The salad had a pleasant bacony flavor, the meat was cooked properly (I like mine rare) and the asparagus was tasty, though cooked well past al dente. My wife had the shrimp with fresh papardelle pasta. She loved that the pasta had its own seafood flavor. My son was very complimentary of the ahi entre. The service and ambience were outstanding. Chart House has long been one of my favorite restaurants and remains near the top.

Discover Monterey

The California Central Coast is rich in sunlight, ocean views, and fabulous food. There are plenty of ways to burn calories, including a hike along the beach, a visit to the remarkable aquarium or a long stroll through one of the large shopping centers! Once you're ready to dine, Carmel is all set to help you out. Carmel cuisine has long been influenced by French tradition, and in addition to wonderful California wines, you can enjoy anything from delicate pastries to locally harvested salmon. Carmel restaurateurs have also done a great job of putting old buildings to new uses. Looking for a romantic spot? Consider making reservations at a corner table tucked into an old house for an intimate dinner.
