We had never tried abalone before our trip to Monterey and this restaurant made us huge fans. We had the clam chowder, abalone appetizer, and scallop dinner. Everything was excellent and our waiter was the best waiter we've ever had. Fantastic service!!

This restaurant is GREAT!! The service was excellent even though there were many other patrons and the food was all prepared to perfection. I gave the hotel a much lower rating than this restaurant and would encourage anyone visiting Monterey to eat here (and stay somewhere else).

Stopped in for a less touristy lunch on a nice day after visiting the aquarium. Wanted a less touristy place. Did not have lots of time and we made our server aware. She hustled with rapid but not rushed of frenetic service. Oysters, dungeness crab cake, and calamari. All wonderful!

With a beautiful view, we had a lovely breakfast ordering a Crab Benedict off the menu. Also a very nice buffet, not too crowded.

My wife and I joined another couple for a brief repast at The C after tramping around the Cannery area for a couple of hours. This place is a bastion of tranquility in a very busy neighborhood. We all ordered non-alcoholic drinks and they came very quickly; the service in The C is extraordinary. We ordered a few appetizers to... More

Arrived at the reservation stand for breakfast without a reservation and was told by the bubbly reservation agent that there would be a 20 minute wait. We were very hungry and asked if she knew of any other place in the area with the same spectacular views. She stopped what she was doing and made a phone call to another... More

The C's restaurant handled 8 women perfectly. Food, drinks, service and atmosphere were perfect for our "girls afternoon out." Happy hour was wonderful:)
