My wife is Gluten free and although they do not have a separate GF menu our server quickly explained what they could produce GF and that... More

Touristic restaurant which provides good fresh fish for a "hefty" price. Service and room are good with a nice view on the harbour. We took 2 fish plates and both were excellent. Still too expensive at the end.

We had a large group and we put in our name and asked how long the wait would be and the hostess said half an hour. The restaurant did not really have a place to sit at the bar so, we asked if we could leave our phone number and if they could call us when the table opens up... More

This was a good place with nice views. The food was good and so was the service, but not a really memorable experience. The sand dabs were nice, but the sauce was more like gravy. My husband had the fried prawns and they were way over done. The view and the sea otters playing made up for the mediocre food.

I just don't get the ratings for this place. The food was nearly inedible. We were in for lunch. My wife had the Deep Fried Jumbo Prawns. They were tasteless, outside of the breading. How do you screw up the fried shrimp? I had Prawns Scampi Castroville. It was disgusting. The best part was the artichokes. The pasta did not... More

Celebrated husband's birthday dinner with a delicious 3-course twilight meal and happy hour drinks. Our twilight meal started with a flavorful cup of clam chowder, entrees included grilled sand dabs and salmon, stir fried vegetables, mashed potatoes, ended with the chef's choice of dessert. Enjoyed happy hour margaritas with our meals. Courteous, professional staff and excellent service. We will definitely... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this lovely restaurant right on Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey. With a table above the water, we were able to watch sea otters at play and other wildlife while taking in the beautiful scenery of Monterey Bay. Our waiter was polite and attentive, and our meal was excellent. I highly recommend the clam chowder--really delicious!

After our whale watching tour we came here for lunch. The best part honestly was watching the sea lions next to out in the water. But the food was delicious and our waiter was very good.

The place was quite busy, but the wait staff was very efficient and professional. View and food was great and all enjoyed the appetizers and entrée. Cost was about $70 per person
