Great looking restaurant unfortunately food and service are mediocre. Stayed at the hotel and dined at this restaurant twice, figured the first bad experience was a fluke but it wasn't. Do yourself a favor dine at the Monterey plaza restaurant, we loved The Clement but may stay at the Plaza next time due to the food being so bad. We... More

Breakfast was decent. The waiter was charming. Food was okay. It came a little slowly though. There were 8 of us. Might have been better for lunch on the deck

We went for a quick dinner of appetizers and beer with hubby before a meeting and wanted to watch the Giants playoff game. The bartender Luis never even cracked a smile and acted like everything he did was a chore ("I don't want to be working here today"). He completely ignored me and took orders from many people -- all... More

We are staying at the intercontinental hotel in Monterey! We were tired as our flight was 2 hrs late! Decided to eat in the hotel. We chose C Restaurant! The service was terrible. I ordered the Clam Chowder. If you have a bite of grit, yuck! Not once, but three times. My hubby had a steak, definately not prime, saw,... More

This is an ocean front restaurant that had probably the best fish I have ever eaten. Portions are small but just right. You have to try the Salmon.

Great value on drinks and small plates. The $8 burger is a great deal. Fries are ok and calamarii had some unique accompaniments, but was a bit greasy for my taste. Overall a great happy hour choice!

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.
