    First impressions count. When a host/hostess does not greet customers with a smile and welcoming attitude, it sets the tone of the whole dining experience. We were given a choice of inside or outside and we chose inside because it was windy and cool. The hostess indicated a table right by the open doors. When I asked if we could sit futher into the restaurant, she said nothing and moved the menus to a small table. There were multiple table choices since there were not many people seated inside, but she seemed mildly annoyed that I asked for a warmer location. The food was good, but like most meal prices these days, it was expensive for what we ordered. I would not recommend this restaurant. There are far more friendly and welcoming establishments with food just as good.

    Overall our experience was great. The only reason I didn't give it a 5-star is because of the drinks. I asked for a Lemmon drop, and it wasn't good. I asked for a prosseco, and the lovely waitress gave me a try a sparkling wine since they didn't have prosecco. Being a hotel restaurant, I think they should carry prosecco, the sparkling wine wasn't even close to it.

    I had a wonderful dining experience at Schooners in Monterey, CA. The drinks were expertly crafted and refreshing, and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was excellent, and the ambiance with views of the water made for a perfect evening. Highly recommended!

    One of our “must go” places when visiting Monterey. We always stop in, if only for a drink (Big Little Lies - grapefruit vodka, Aperol… deliciousness). This time it was lunch. I had the crab BLT and husband had the chicken sandwich. We both loved them. Disappointed that the crab dip with caviar wasn’t on the lunch menu (only at dinner). Service was excellent and if you’re dining outside watching otters in the bay, what more could you ask for?
