    Wonderful, as always. Love the ambiance and the service is top notch. Brandon and Ignacio made sure we had everything we needed and paced our meal perfectly. First time to try the Seafood Pasta Marina. Jam packed with seafood and the sauce was so good, I wanted to turn up the bowl and drink it!

    My son and I both ordered the ribeye. The server never came back to check on our order. The ribeye was tough to cut and eat. For $73.00 each, it should have melted in our mouths.

    The crab bisque was served with a medallion of puff pastry on top which was awkward to negotiate and detracted from the flavorful soup however the chef was completely redeemed by the salad presented with whipped goat cheese drizzled on the plate to be incorporated into the greens with each bite. Tomahawk pork chop was perfection. Cherries jubilee, though not flambé as promised, was lovely. Bravo!

    Do NOT waste your hard earned $$$ on the Wagyu New York Strip. Toughest, flavorless steak I have had in along time. I have had plenty of regular ribeye’s with more flavor and tender for 1/3 of the price. I would be embarrassed to serve this quality of stake and have it printed on the menu that it is 9+ rating on the Wagyu scale of 3-12.

    Dear RFlowers, Thank you for your informative review, we appreciate you taking the time. We’re sorry to hear that your steak order fell short of your expectations. We will pass your comments on to the Owners and Management of The Sardine Factory. In the future, it is best to say something to your server so that they can make things right while you are in the restaurant. If you have a moment, would you please call our General Manager so they can offer a way to make amends? The number is (831) 373-3775. We appreciate your letting us know about your experience, and hope you will consider allowing us to serve you again in the future.

    A spectacular meal. We had Abalone bisque and sardines as appetizers and for mains it was seafood past and Parmesan crusted calamari steak. And for dessert, it was the semifreddo and the cannoli. Each dish was prepared to perfection and the portions were large enough to constitute another meal the following evening. Our server (Lawrence?) carried out his duties impeccably, yet was not the least bit officious or condescending. The sommelier (Dave?) was both knowledgeable and completely un-intimidating. When I asked him about and appropriate wine for the calamari, I said that I was considering a white Burgundy at a certain price point. He concurred, but also suggested a 7-year old South African Chardonnay for 30% less. Not one to contradict the Sardine Factory sommelier, I went with his suggestion and found the wine to be a spectacular match with the calamari. A dinner for the ages.

    This is our must visit eatery when visiting Monterey Bay. My husband looks forward to the abalone and I the white prawn cocktail. This time we brought friends with us. It was their first time eating here. They loved it. We had a wonderful round table near the wine cellar, and our server Jose' and his assistant did an amazing job taking care of us. Everyone was very happy with their food choices (abalone steaks, fillet of sole, sea bass, and linguini and clams) and the deserts were awesome. Thank you for another amazing experience.

    Nice restaurant with great drinks and service. Prime rib was order rare and come out medium to medium well. Appetizers and soup was excellent tho.

    An excellent restaurant for a special occasion or just a meal. The service is impeccable and never disappoints. The food is beyond great. Been dining here for 35 to 40 years and I've never had a bad meal. The wait staff is attentive but never in your face. They're the best in the business. Highly recommended.

    This was a less than stellar experience at Sardine Factory. We had to ask for water 6 times. Our cocktails (which also took a long time to get to our table) even arrived before our water. Unfortunatley, the waiter seemed entirely distracted by larger parties. We had to remind him twice that we ordered a bowl of the bisque (and 2 cups were brought out). When the “famous” cheese bread arrived, the napkin was draped over the top and was stuck to the cheese. We were constantly battling with empty plates and menus taking up space on our tiny table for 2. The seafood Marina was delicious!!! The calamari steak was just okay (I honestly liked the scallops and shrimp that accompanied the calamari more). The risotto wasn’t super warm, so maybe that’s why I wasn’t over impressed with that. I would still recommend this restaurant, but be closer to the bar (we were in the room with the glass ceiling) where you can listen to the piano and be closer to the bar for expeditions libations. Cheers!

    Was a little skeptical of a restaurant so close to a touristy area, but the Sardine factory exceeded expectations. We sat in the conservatory--which is a beautiful glass dome surrounded by a garden. I had never had sardines before and did order the sardine salad appetizer. I anticipated an oily, fishy fish by reputation--but the preparation was delicious. It was reminiscent of tuna with a lovely vinaigrette. My husband got the abalone--which should not be missed. The waitstaff was attentive and made for a special night. It was a very memorable dinner and highly recommended.
