Stopped by for lunch. The grilled artichoke, pulled pork sliders, and brisket panini were all scrumptious. Our server Megan was... very friendly and attentive. We will be back to try more of the menu. Read more

Delicious food! The Fisherman's plate is a good choice if you want to taste a little bit of different seafood at the same time.... Super fresh and tasty! Read more

We decided to try this place and were not disappointed. We started with an appetizer of perfectly prepared calamari. It was... tender and not rubbery at all. For the main course, I had the lasagna with meatballs and an excellent glass of Cabernet (CarmelRoad) and my son had the spaghetti bolognese and he took 2 of my meatballs. Lol The generous portion of lasagna was extremelyflavorful and my son had no complaints about his spaghetti as he ate all of it. I would definitely return if in the area. I hadmy eye on the rib eye but didn’t get a chance to try it this time around. Read more

I ordered the grilled salmon salad "Blackened" I got The grilled salmon salad. Lol The salmon was fresh and tender but the salad... itself was plain and boring with little chips of candied walnuts? or pecans? I couldn't tell. the salad dressing was the bestpart of this whats normally "easy not to mess up" salad. Lol My lemon drop cocktail came in a margarita glass and well kind oftasted like a margarita, I'm not sure if it had alcohol or not.¿ but they missed the mark on that one. Having said that theMahi Mahi dinner sides mashed potatoes and vegetables were flavorful and quite good. I'm told the fish was good but a littlerubbery. Not sure if id go back but the ribs looked delicious. Our waitress Ashley was friendly and delightful and worth thewhole experience. Read more

If you go make sure you ask for Marcos to be your waiter! He is phenomenal! My fiancée and I have never known such good service... and his personality made the last night of our vacation spectacular! The food was amazing! From the wings to the wedge salad tothe soup, calamari and bruschetta…. We were here for hours! We tried it all while enjoying the football playoffs. Make sureyou ask Marcos to make you his own creation of the carrot and cucumber vodka martini. You will not be disappointed. It is sorefreshing and delicious. Make sure you visit here. Read more

Just had an idea excellent 14oz ribeye steak here. Cooked perfectly and it was a good cut, well marbled. Twice baked potato was... delicious and even the side vegetables were delicious (zucchini and carrots. They put bread n butter on the table too. Largeand spacious inside dining and an outside patio …looks like they created it for outdoor covid dining. Worth a drop and I willreturn. Read more

It's hard to find restaurants these days that are worthy of a 5 star rating, but this is one of them. Service was quick and... friendly, and the food was excellent, though a bit pricy. The restaurant is conveniently located in the hotel district, though abit tedious to get to, because of the fenced off bike path running in through the middle of the road. The place is massive, andhas a very nice ambiance, especially in the evening. We ordered the New York Steak with Twice Baked Potatoes, Blackened Chickenand Short Ribs. The Blackened Chicken was byfar my favorite of the three dishes, and had I known that they put the BBQ sauce ina container, and not on the chicken, I would have ordered this dish instead. The best thing about it is probably its variety.They serve everything from Italian pizza, to sea food. So there really is something for everyone. Amazingly it was a warmweekend, and the place wasn't super crowded. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a place to eat in Monterey. I guessmy only complaint is I was a little confused, because I could have sworn their menu had breakfast items listed, but therestaurant doesn't open 'til 11:30. Read more
