I did a web search for a restaurant with abalone and decided on this one that was to have an abalone BLT sandwich. Well I ordered it and within a few minutes the poor waiter had to deliver the news that there was NO abalone in that day - apologies abounded. So, I ordered the oysters Rockerfeller - 4 oysters...

This is the second time I've eaten here. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the food arrived quickly. I had the Calamari and Chips and the calamari was outstanding. Wife had the Captain's Platter and the cod piece (same as the Fish and Chips cod) was the best I've had anywhere, and this includes several trips to London.... More

Typical fare. Good but not great. Service was okay but the acoustics need to be improved. Would not consider it the best value on the wharf.

This establishment has been around for years and continually draws customers from around the world for their great seafood. Decor, atmosphere as well as outdoor dining is excellent with great view of the bay. Very decent prices with great choices and 'specials'. My fav is their abalone in any form whether grilled, fried or steamed. Can't go wrong.

After a spectacular whale-watching experience, we headed here for a late lunch. My son had a pizza and I had the fried squid and eggplant with mozzarella. The food was fabulous and I even tried a little squid on the pizza. Delicious.

We decided to have lunch at Abalonetti because they have a nice terrace. It's nice to eat outside and we enjoyed first a very good Margarita. We didn't expect much of the food, but we were pleasantly surprised when our seafood pasta arrived. The pasta was delicious with a lot of seafood! So we had a great lunch on a... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at and our server-Joe was absolutely wonderful. The retaurant was busy when we arrived so we sat at the bar and had a drink. Didn't have to wait long and we were seated at a table by the windows with a view of the water. We ordered an Abalone... More

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
