We had breakfast here every day because it was so good and the view was so lovely. Excellent service and eggs made exactly as you would want them. My poached eggs (medium) were cooked just right and the crab meat just the right amount. Hollandaise was tasty and perfect to have it on the side.

Great place by the water with an outdoor patio. Calmer than the surrounding options. Very nice for a little quiet time and a cocktail.

We were at the C for a couple of breakfasts and a dinner. The food was excellent, all who had scallops said they were "awesome". Our servers were very pleasant and helpful. Vanessa helped us choose, she was very nice. Breakfast brunch and menu were terrific.

...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

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 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.
