Plenty of vegetarian options. Non-vegetarians loved the sea food. Service is timely and friendly- not rushed even though it was a busy night. You can taste the attention paid to each meal.

The food (clam chowder and swordfish sandwich) were average and the service was very good. The reason to return would be the location and views; you are seated right on Monterey Bay. Insist on a window table.

Stopped by one night to try out the new bar menu - YUM. I was most impressed with the calamari... worth going in just for that! The cocktails were ok and the other food options were tasty too. Luis was our server, he was great! I'd like to sit outside next time... the fire pits looked really cozy. We'll be... More

We stopped in for half price apps and were happy with the food. The bartended seemed a little unsocial. The apps are a little pricy but the chowder was awesome. We only went once only because there are other places to enjoy pre dinner food.

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

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.
