Food is wonderful but...

The view is quite nice at this restaurant. The food was delicious and has a nice selection. However the service needs work! Our server was nice but at times neglected us and slow, service needs to be worked on.

...we went back for breakfast! Rarely do we eat at the same place twice. However the food at C was so fresh, the views so beautiful, and the staff so enjoyable, we went back for breakfast the next morning. Even if you don't like beets, you must try the Beet Salad at dinner; and the Fench toast with fresh berries... More

We were visiting and stopped in for lunch which was extremely disappointing to say the least especially for a restaurant of this standard - clam chowder was ok nothing great but full of potato - my mixed green salad had a little rocket lettuce mix surrounded my beets - my husbands fish taco and chips were not good at all...

A most pleasant dining experience in all respects. To begin with, the menu choices are superb and everything was prepared to perfection. The ambiance is delightful, and the gorgeous views of Monterey Bay were a special treat. Our server, Nathan, was the best and made our experience most enjoyable.

Delicious seafood and fine service (Nathan); particularly attentive to dietary restrictions and the special occasion. Great bar, too. And of course the view was outstanding.

I had the char; my wife, the scallops. Both dishes were fantastic. The ambiance was romantic; the view of the bay, beautiful and our server, Nathan, made the entire dining experience delightful and special.

An excellent place to enjoy dinner with live music. The food is sensational and elegant. The service is amazing. They pay attention to the finest details. Luis, the bartender, is highly experienced and knowledgeable with a pleasant personality. Bill (William) is a charming bartender who named a dirk after me. Aciel is the best waiter ever he introduced me to... More
