Our first visit to this restaurant. We didn't book but we were given a table for 4 very quickly with a view of the bay. There was plenty of choice on the menu. The meal was absolutely delicious, well cooked and well presented. Service was good and attentive. We really enjoyed the whole experience.

We popped in to have a drink ahead of our meal and see the place. It was a Friday night, so the place was packed but we managed to grab a spot on the patio and take in the view. We each had a glass of wine and split a bowl of chowder. Would have liked to go back for... More

What a wonderful restaurant to find yourself in!! There is inside and outside seating. Inside, there is a piano bar, and later into the evening, several artists take their turn at the mic. Very entertaining. Outside, you can enjoy the wonderful salt air from the ocean. The food is outstanding and the service is impeccable. We were fortunate to see... More

Good food, if a little 'safe', and reasonable value. Lots of fun inside with someone usually on the piano or having a sing (so can get a bit rowdy and busy nearer the bar) but a delightful terrace out back with great views and heaters to keep a mild summer chill at bay. Excellent steak, perfect scallops, good service and... More

Great place to go on an afternoon - no reservations for dinner or drinks so get there early enough. Great place to sit and the scenery and watching is extremely relaxing.

This is the restaurant that is owned by Clint Eastwood. It is an old farm that has been renovated. The service and food were good. It is a bit pricey, but there are a few items that are quite affordable. The don't normally take reservations and the first seating is at 5 pm. You are wise to show up around... More

On our annual trip to Carmel, we once again ate at the Mission Ranch Restaurant. It's troubling that they won't accept reservations so we "cooled our heals" on the patio. It was a rather cool evening and our table for cocktails was shy one heat lamp - but nonetheless we suffered through. Oddly enough, when our table was ready -... More

I live in Monterey and my family was recently visiting me. I'd never been to Mission Ranch so I decided to take everyone there for dinner. There was no wait. We we immediately sat on the patio.
