We came here for my husbands birthday and we were staying nearby at the Tickled Pink hotel next door. I knew it was pricey but didn't want to drive back into Carmel . Big mistake, we came after dark so the views weren't an issue. The place was more than half empty and still the service was horrible. I finally... More

Magnificent view of Pacific Ocean sunset while enjoying good food. Menu offered variety but was on the expensive side. Wine / bar selection was good along with service. Make your reservation at least 30 minutes before sunset.....it goes down quickly.

The view from this restaurant was beautiful!!!!! The food was wonderful! We choose this due to the reviews we had read and it's location near our hotel. We were very happy with our choice. We would recommend this as a must stop when you want a nice dinner in Carmel!

The dining room at Pacific's Edge looks out over the ocean framed by monterey pines/cypress. It's lovely to have a drink before dinner and watch the sunset while dining. It's our understanding there's a new chef so maybe there will be an updated menu to follow. I ordered the Wild Mushroom pasta dish and husband was served the nicest portion... More

Part of Hyatt hotel. Great views from restaurant and its built literally on the edge of the cliff. Food is expensive-the kansas city steak is $65! Good meal and you can find less expensive items on the menu. Good for couples and adults.

...on a clear or partly cloudy evening. When the time goes to standard time, forget it because they are only open from 6 to 9 PM. The bar may be open, so check that. The wine list is mostly bottles, and I saw nothing under $100, so be ready. A glass starts at $16, but the selection is limited. We... More

There is no question that the sunset view from this dining room is unmatched in Carmel/Monterey. We booked our reservation to be seated 15 minutes before the sunset time we found online. It was breathtaking. The lodge itself is built onto a 100 year old stone and beam structure which is rich in history and the additions make it even... More

Apparently I am not the only one to feel neglected by the waitstaff, from reading some of the recent reviews. Having an incredible view and great food does not give you the luxury to skimp on service. We came here and watched a beautiful sunset, certainly one of the best places to come within the area. The hostess, while nice,... More

We visited Pacific's Edge for dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere. However, this is a good example of a restaurant that takes themselves seriously but only partially delivers. The food is above average but priced as excellent. There are better places to spend a lot of money with better food. The service was slow...we spent the whole evening and were the... More

My husband and I planned to go for a romantic dinner. Once in a while it's nice to splurge. Well, the food was delicious, the wine was amazing (even if we ordered by the glass). Apparently that is a no-no at a snob restaurant. But we are not in the market of paying $200 for a $40 dollar bottle of... More
