Let's start by saying our server was fabulous. Believe his name is Enrique. The restaurant itself is nicer than I expected and we had a nice table. Parking was easy and our sat nav took us straight to the door of the restaurant. But the food.. I had fish tacos and my husband had enchiladas. The tacos were bland, the... More

Lots of good places to eat in Monterey but chose here partly due to the view but the food and service were also very good and would eat here again. Nice place to enjoy the bay and a few cocktails.

Great atmosphere, consistent staff and good food. Salads are good but huge! Great brunch spot, especially with bottomless mimosas! Love their dinner and drink menu! Great for big parties indoor or outdoor.

The view at this restaurant is stellar. You are right on the beach. It is so beautiful! We went to the restaurant at around 4:30 becuase we were starving from a long day of travel so there were very few people in teh restaurant. So we got prime seats. It was spectacular. The food was very good! I have a... More

Beautiful location and food was very good. Family of 4 with kids service was great too. I think it was fairly priced and not to expensive - worth going to and you won't break the bank

We stopped here for a quick bite after walking on Cannery Row. The restaurant has a bit of a 50s ambiance and a great beach view. The seafood salad and shrimp dish we had were both delicious and very fresh. Overall the menu had a great variety of food and drinks and the staff were very attentive.

I was in Monterey last week and went to this restaurant, first time as we were there for 1 day as most peoples do for the aquarium. We went to Lalla Grill, nice place with great view. We ordered jumbo shrimp for $12 a plate, burgers and chicken fingers for my kid. The "Jumbo" shrimp were actually regular size and... More

Food, service, ambiance all special. Don't miss the specialty cocktails from downstairs bar. Sorry I don't live here to enjoy often. May require another trip to Monterey just for Lallas food.

We stopped in at Lalla while walking down Cannery Row. It was nice to find a modern restaurant/bar with a sexy fun vib. We had a couple of yummy drinks during happy hour before our dinner reservations elsewhere. The view was spectacular, the staff was friendly and the mojito had freshly crushed in the glass mint. Will definitely return when... More

Not to be confused, as many reviewers have done, with it's new cousin on Cannery Row. Still the same good value, well-done contemporary decor with large patio -- good for something to eat on the way to/from the adjacent theater complex. We split the Brand steak and it was plenty, but not cooked to order (rare instead of medium-rare as... More
