Beautiful setting, all tables have an ocean view. First class service, our waiter was especially helpful finding options for our young children.

Meal started rough. Ordered a wine and was told they had to go look for it and that we should order. So we did. This is always a bad move IMHO. Keep your wine close, it should not take minutes to find it. A few minutes later, waitress returned indicating the wine was out of stock. This is a major... More

Oh my gosh the food is good. The service is impeccable. For dinner there was a guitarist, I believe, playing soft music. Casual atmosphere where some people have torn jeans and others do not, if you know what I mean. The fish, the meat, the wine. I cannot say enough positive things about this restaurant. The service everything. You won't... More

The atmosphere is modern and upscale with a view of the ocean across an exterior boardwalk. We were able to get a window table but I was disappointed in the entree choices. We were there for breakfast and I wanted something simple after a holiday season of eating. There were no simple choices and everything was pricey.

I really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere is really nice with views of the ocean and good service. If you enjoy wine, the pours are very good!

We had couple appetizers and a cup of tea. The waitress kept apologizing because she was overwhelmed. She Deducted the tea from our bill because of the lacking of service she provided. I was very impressed with her honesty. In turn I gave her the cost of the 2 cups of tea + 15 % tip

The happy hour is the best value on Cannery Row, try the calamari, fantastic! Sit by the window and enjoy the view, service is on spot and you can't beat the half price deals

We had both breakfast and dinner at C restaurant while staying at the Clement Intercontinental. We were seated at a booth both times. We felt the spacing between tables was very good with tables lining the windows facing the water. The breakfast was very good but expensive. The dinner was absolutely delicious. We can recommend duck breast with carrot risotto... More

I came here for their early plate menu at 5pm since I was here for a conference (dinner begins at 5:30pm and not a moment sooner). I sat next to several couples that I heard complain about "weak" drinks and the drinks tasking "off" - one refused to pay and then left without staying for dinner. I had a burger... More
