We decided to enjoy their "Bar Menu Testing" and share our appetizers. We had the Hummus and Olive Tapanade, Monterey Bay Calamari, Sonoma Duck Croquettes, Charcuterie (Duck Salami), Steak Frites, and Rock Cod Tacos. It was the most amazing appetizers I have ever had with my top 3 being the Calamari (fresh and cooked perfectly), Charcuterie (salami was amazing and... More

This site is over looking the water -need I say more! Very modern decor, open, bright, perfect for great ocean viewing. Food was very good. I had the C Omlet with lobster & brie. My selection was wonderful. A little pricey but considering the location & atmosphere it was worth it. It is located near the Acqaurium in Cannery Row.

C is the restaurant of Monterey's InterContinental Hotel. We had breakfast there on both days of our stay and it was a very pleasant experience in all respects: The service was fast and friendly, the food very good, and the atmosphere (floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the Bay) memorable. You can get a less expensive breakfast at the... More

C is a lovely restaurant with a terrific bay view, romantic / calm / relaxed atmosphere with nice lighting, and very good appetizers and wine by the glass. Service is friendly and professional and both indoor and outdoor seating is very lovely. Calamari in particular is a good choice, The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. Monterey has a lot of... More

The new chef had only been there 3 weeks but had tweeked the bar menu into something innovative and really good. The grilled Rock Cod fish tacos are definitely worth ordering. Sat outside late at night next to a heater and was quite comfortable. Look forward to trying a full dinner on next visit.

Had dinner here for the second time and was twice impressed. More pricey and upscale than other Cannery Row places, but not touristy. Had appetizers outside at oceanside wind-screened bar table--at happy hour they are half price!--the most delicious calamari (and I don't even usually LIKE calamari) with an unusual flavor and very fresh lovely oysters. Moved inside to ocean... More

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
