Just looking at pictures and then calling to see how busy I did not expect any special. But special is what is was. The service was wonderful!!! The food delicious. We ate outside - covered and with heaters. Our waiter, Dino, went above and beyond.

Food absolutely delicious. We had their special fish & chips. Set outside right on water. Cindy was our waitress- she is an absolute jewel! Service very fast and efficient. Our fish cooked just right and panko breading just right thickness. Cindy brought my husband birthday dessert- best chocolate brownies pie we've ever had with beautiful presentation! Cindy was so nice... More

A window table is much desired at this restaurant as the views of the bay and nearby rocks is wonderful. The food is good and a "little" pricey, but you are going to pay for that view.

We were there at 12/28/2016 at my birthday. Excellent service (many thanks), very good wine (Coppola Chardonnay) and very very delicious food (Seafood pasta and Swordfish / prawns). It was an evening makes us happy until now!!

Try the salmon or halibut. They are both great options. Tuna is not so great. Prices are ok. View and location are the best. Nice seating but service needs to be improved.

My husband and I ate dinner here while in town on vacation. The views are amazing! We asked for a table on the water and were seated immediately at a cozy table for two. The service was wonderful and the food was very good. I think if you know ahead of time that this is a higher end restaurant and... More

Went here for a meal but the prices were a bit steep for a budget traveller like me. Went for the takeaway option instead and the same dish was about half the rate. Had clam chowder and fish & chips. Really good stuff. Fresh and tasty.

Husband and I were looking for a place to eat. Saw that it was packed on the outside with people waiting to eat, so we went here. So glad we did! From start to finish, staff was timely, efficient, and professional. Everything we ate was well seasoned, cooked thoroughly, flavorful, and visually appealing. Even though it was dark, we enjoyed...

Nice restaurant with good service. The food is average and a bit overpriced. Big wine list but not a lot from Monterey which surprised us. We came for Monterey wine
