Really Great For Families

I had a shrimp Louie and it was excellent at this very friendly family restaurant right on Alvarado is beautiful Monterey. Parking can be tricky but once inside, outstanding for casual dining.

To be honest maybe Americans like this style of food but to an Englishman who cooks good food this place was a nightmare. No it is not good service to be asked 5 times in 5 minutes what our party of four wants to drink without us looking at the craft beer and wine list. Waitress who served us had... More

I love Italian food, and since it had been featured on TV, my boyfriend and I decided to try Rosine's during a day trip to the coast. Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of minestrone soup... Rosine's has definitely changed my mind. There are no words to describe how delicious the soup and lasagna... More

We went here because it was a DDD spot and we were not that impressed. My husband ordered the salmon special, which was good but nothing that stood out. I ordered the lasagna that was a feature on the show and again, it was average. The two of us shared s cup of minestrone soup and thought that was the... More

This was a restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The food was good but the portions were HUGE. It wasn't as tasty as I would have expected. We didn't order the items featured on the show so perhaps those really are worth trying. Just wasn't in the mood for those. My son enjoyed the ribs, my daughter's tortellini was... More

We ate here on our annual drive up the California coast. Had their lasagna and split a piece of cheesecake. Wonderful! So good we stopped again on our drive back down. Had some chicken fettuccini this time split a piece of strawberry whip cream cake. The dessert showcase is a definite photo op! It is noisy and there was a... More

We passed this place several ties walking in Monterey and finally had lunch there. The Lasagna is out of this world. There are many great choices and the desserts are fantastic!

Everything about this place was exceptional!! We dined here for a late breakfast on a Saturday morning. My omelette was huge and delicious! I ordered a side of salsa, but the waitress recommended I try their garlic pepper sauce first. It was so awesome that we purchased a bottle from them. They had the most amazing bakery case- all homemade... More

Three words... Peanut butter pie! My sister thinks they have the best minestrone soup ever! It sure did look good and smelled delicious...I stuck with the desserts this trip.. although I've never been disappointed in their food either.
