Call for reservations - great place to meet up for a drink or to grab a bite. Ocean views from the dining area.

I highly recommend the C Restaurant & Bar at the Inner Continental's Clement Monterrey, CA. This contemporary restaurant has a beautiful view of Monterrey Bay, which you can enjoy from almost every seat in the restaurant. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day breakfast there. There were lots of great choices on the menu and we thought the Eggs Benedict and... More

I was there for dinner. The service was excellent, as was the atmosphere. I had a pasta dish, and it was very good. I was with someone from the east coast who may not be accustomed to portion sizes in upscale California restaurants. She was disappointed that she did not get more vegetables with the salmon. The portions were what... More

We were there for lunch on Christmas Day. The menu was quite limited, perhaps due to the day. The waiter was quick and generally attentive. The food was okay. The fish tacos were a bit flaccid and served with only french fries, which were good but didn't seem like a good match. The cioppino was a bit of a disappointment.... More

Were only there for lunch. Food excellent, service a bit slow and un attentive even though the late lunch "crowd" consisted of four tables for two servers. The busser was charming and added charm to our visit.

Plenty of vegetarian options. Non-vegetarians loved the sea food. Service is timely and friendly- not rushed even though it was a busy night. You can taste the attention paid to each meal.

The food (clam chowder and swordfish sandwich) were average and the service was very good. The reason to return would be the location and views; you are seated right on Monterey Bay. Insist on a window table.

Stopped by one night to try out the new bar menu - YUM. I was most impressed with the calamari... worth going in just for that! The cocktails were ok and the other food options were tasty too. Luis was our server, he was great! I'd like to sit outside next time... the fire pits looked really cozy. We'll be... More

We stopped in for half price apps and were happy with the food. The bartended seemed a little unsocial. The apps are a little pricy but the chowder was awesome. We only went once only because there are other places to enjoy pre dinner food.
