Fantastic Happy Hour

Stopped in for happy hour after a day at the aquarium. Fantastic drinks and apps! Sat outside by the fire and enjoyed mojitos, calamari, oysters, and fried duck cakes - All delicious!

Only had drinks and appetizers at the bar. Nice outdoor space and great views. Best place for to eat and drink on Cannery Row. There are several good shops on Cannery Row, but basically very touristy.

Great views, food and service, could not be faulted and even more so that they welcomed small children. It was a lovely dinner at the end of a beautiful,day.

Unfortunately I did not have time for a full meal but I was lucky enough to stop by for Happy Hour. Champagne flight, calamari, duck, and taco appetizers were tasty and fresh. Half price at happy hour includes the champagne flight, a bargain at $11 (vs. $22). Great views and a lovely guitar instrumentalist make this a romantic stop on... More

Good view, good food, good wine, and relaxing spot to escape the crowds along the street. Pricing was reasonable, and bar was trendy and upscale.

This place offers great service, wonderful food and a view of Monterrey Bay. It is a fine dining experience, so the prices are higher than some of the other places nearby, but if you can afford to splurge a little, this is a great place to do so. Our waiter, Nathan, attended to our every need. Would definitely return.

Always enjoy a romantic breakfast here when we stay at The Clement Hotel. The Clement Eggs Benedict is the way to go. Can't beat the view. Request a booth so you can stare out at the bay.

Fitted us in although we hadn't booked . Great view and fabulous service . $38 for average entree and $12 for desserts . Good wine list. Quiet atmosphere so whilst food is great , don't go for a buzz as its quiet and subdued !
