On a recent visit to Monterey we decided to have dinner one night at Abalonetti on Fisherman's Warf. Our server Joe was so helpful and helped us decide what we would like for dinner. My husband had the Sicilian calamari and it was so good. The calamari was so tender and seasoned from the wine and it was just great.... More

This place is just like all the rest on the wharf catering to tourists. We opted to sit at the bar and had clam chowder with wine for lunch. Clam chowder was average. The bartender seemed to ignore us after giving us menus though she was not busy. Outside seating has good water view.

It was a Thursday afternoon during the lunch hour. There were not many patrons here. It still took a few minutes before someone came to seat us. Then it took quite a while before our wait person showed up to introduce themselves. This is a "seafood" establishment and as we inquired about various items on the menu in each case... More

We read the menu and decided to give it a try. It was not crowded like the other restaurants, but that did not mean anything other than the other folks did not walk down the pier enough. Server was cute & effecient. We ordered a good pizza, they say they serve one but we shared it, bread salad was tasty,... More

We have been here many times in the past and have always received great food and service. We arrived at 8:00 and were seated within 5 minutes. I can tell it was going to be a long night when we did not receive menu's or silverware when we sat down. Finally after about 5 minutes the waiter brought us menu's... More

We tend to go to this restaurant when in the area because of their various calamari dishes. They're one of the few places that will serve it without breading and frying it. The food was good, but they messed up my wife's order. It seems that they cannot deal well with special orders. FYI - Abalonetti is not a family... More

Have been to different places on the pier over the years and this was a first time during lunch at the mid week. The mussels appetizer was very disappointing. They were not fresh and over half of them were dried out as if they had been sitting in storage for a while. We're visiting from the mid west and we've... More

The food was ok. Nothing spectacular but edible. The service wasn't up to standard. Service was a little on the slow side. It was a weeknight and not overly busy at the restaurant so no excuse. I had one small issue with a drink that should have easily been dealt with, but rather than deal with it professionally the staff... More

We have eaten here about 5 times, whenever we are in Monterey; we only order Marty's Special and it is always wonderful.

We chose this restaurant because we arrived late to Monterey and we were starving. Since a table wouldn't be ready for a few minutes, we had drinks at the bar. I had a beer and my husband had a double Grey Goose on the rocks. The latter was $24! $12 a shot!!! You don't see those prices in San Francisco,... More
