    Sorry to say we were disappointed in our seafood dishes. The she crab soup was fine, but one of the specials of the day was returned for being tepid (at best) and arrived dry on the second try. They did remove it from the bill and comped a great dessert. The lobster arancini was mainstream. We expected better.

    Three of us had dinner at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto last night. We were celebrating a birthday. The food and service were outstanding. Our server Jonathan could not have been nicer. He was very pleasant and attentive. One of the managers came over multiple times to check on the service and quality of our meals. We will certainly return.

    Requested a window table with a view of the Point weeks in advance for out of town quests. Was not accompanied with our request. Food was average and seating was very tight.

    Nothing but rave reviews for a Marvelous Anniversary Dinner on the Top of Mt. Washington. We had the best spot in the restaurant and we were treated like royalty on our special day. Everyone who waited on us greeted us with "Happy Anniversary ". The food choices were exceptional, and the wine we selected didn't disappoint. To top of the evening, we certainly enjoyed our special complimentary desert treat. We will be back.

    As usual the food is always great. Food cost and wages are up all over the country so, a non factor to me. One should know if they can afford to dine in certain restaurants. The view from Monterey Bay Fish Grotto is second to none, and our server Stephanie was really good! We retired to the downstairs lounge for an after dinner cocktail and listened to some nice music and viewed the city fireworks which were a surprise! I would suggest changing the music choice in the dining room to a more mellow dinner music. It may calm people and prevent them from talking so loud, thus lowering the noise decibels. It was kind of noisy during dinner. But overall a top notch dining experience.
