Brilliant breakfast!

The lobster omelette is to die for! Best tea I've had in the States. Service was great and the views were spectacular. You walk out happy after eating here...would drive back just to have the meal again.

During two dinners and a weekend brunch we found the cuisine to be exceptionally fresh and delicious. This is a fine restaurant that is a must stop when in Monterey.

We stayed in the Clement so we decided to have lunch here. When we arrived, we are the only people and service is great. It is right on the beach so the view is great. We ordered crab cake, chowder, cod taco, and burger. Food is good, though none of the dishes really stands out.

We ate in the restaurant and had happy hour in the bar, which is Monday through Thursday. Excellent bar and finger foods.

We got here late and took the easy route and ate at the hotel. Big mistake. Swordfish was very salty, the salad uninspiring, the soup was very good though.

This restaurant and bar are very easily accessible for the hotel lobby. They sit right on top of the wharf and provide great views of Monterrey Bay. The food is also very good for a place it's size.

Our family enjoyed all our entrees at the C restaurant - hot oatmeal, croissant french toast, eggs of various types and more. Everything was good, service excellent and prices about what you'd expect.

The C Restaurant and Bar has a "lunchroom" feel to it, but it also has large windows with a great view of Monterey Bay. We were glad for the view since it took nearly 15 minutes before a server came over to us to take our order. We were on the verge of just getting up and leaving and finding... More

Just had wine and soup, both good, food we saw looked quite good. Plenty of people as well, so it is not just some crappy hotel restaurant. Look forward to returning for a full meal.
