Mother's Day Menus & Specials
Mom deserves the best. Treat your mother to an extraordinary dining experience with our special, Mother's Day three-course lunch & dinner
An iconic place. The ambiance is wonderful if you are looking for time dining. They remembered our anniversary and brought us a chocolate tort to share which was nice.
All members of our party of three had the special three crab-stuffed jumbo shrimp with hollandaise sauce. It was very rich and was more than we could finish.
Delicious food, gracious service, a wonderful experience
The service was fantastic! This is why I would be back.
We treated our two teenage grandchildren to dinner and had a very nice dinner . They both remarked at the beauty of the room however it was quite noisy and found it difficult to have a conversation. Food and service was good but not as good as in the past.
Sardine Factory is consistent and our must stop and visit places while in Monterey.
The food was delicious and great relative to comparable restaurants. There was a slight mixup with one of the orders but was corrected as soon as possible without issue. The servers and staff were friendly and polite.
Absolutely one of the BEST places in Monterey to go for a wonderful elegant meal. We have been going here for several years and it had never disappointed us once. This was our first meal out since the lockdown occurred and we NEVER worried about health or distancing concerns for one moment when coming back to the Sardine Factory. The staff took the utmost caution to ensure everyone's safety. We were celebrating our daughters 16th birthday and everyone at the Sardine factory made her feel extremely special which meant the world to us especially during these times. We can't wait till we can come back home to the wonderful family at the Sardine Factory to celebrate our next adventure.
Thank you for always being there.

Everything went super well! Except my steak came out wrong 3 times but they were very nice and helpful about it, i would still come back!
The Sardine Factory never disappoints!!! A must restaurant to go to when you are in Monterey.
Great service and ambiance, and prices are also good for the exceptional quality.
We were seated in the atrium, which is lovely. Our sommelier Rachel was so nice and made excellent recommendations. Had the Easter prix fixe menu, which was delicious and a great value.
Best Manhattan I’ve ever had. Meal was shrimp stuffed with crab. Amazing!
We love the Sardine Factory! We enjoyed our time there for a special birthday. I have only one complaint for this particular dinner. It was so long between appetizers that we had to ask about our dinners. The waitress said the kitchen was backed up. However, when we got our food it was lukewarm. It still tasted good so we ate it, but I like filet mignon & stuffed shrimp served warm. They did make up the long wait with an extra dessert though. We will go back. It wasn’t a deal breaker.
A very nice dining experience. Conservatory seating was very nice. Food very good but I would highly recommend offering a rib eye in the 10-12 oz range. I had the 18 oz and it was good just too big.
Had a wonderful time! Good food, great service. Would recommend!
Best place to eat in Monterey hands down !
Amazing food. Ordered special recommended by our waiter and it was delicious.
Can’t wait to go back
We were seated in the glass atrium room that was very noisy. I would have preferred to be seated in the main dinning room that had more class and history. This was our 49th wedding anniversary and would have liked a better experience. Our Waiter Orlando was very good.
The expectation was pretty high based on the appearance of this restaurant and it’s fine dining history. The service was perfect and the food was excellent. We sat in the captain’s dining room and we dressed up for dinner only find other guests were seated in jeans and one table in front of the fireplace had a dog in a bed next to them. Mind you, I have no problem with casual dining at all but we were looking for an elevated experience for our an anniversary and to no fault of the restaurant staff, our experience, especially when compared to the cost of the meal, it just fell a bit short. The noise from the lounge area was also distracting, the crowd was singing along with the live performer. If you’re looking for great food and service, they deliver. I would just warn not to overdress for dinner here.
