Make a reservation because this small family style restaurant is always full. We ate there two nights in a row and the meals were excellent and reasonable for the quality of the food and the service. We would go back anytime. The fish is fresh and the meal is plentiful. They have a full bar and a great selection of... More

Food is great, prices are reasonable. Reserve and go early. People start waiting outside - with reservations - when they open. It can get very noisy. Ask for a table in the side room

Found this place after checking reviews on TA and was a little disappointed. Although this is a market and the fish is very fresh, I can only assume that we didn't order the right things. My husband had the grilled crab cakes where were not made with lump meat crab and tasted mostly made of breading which made them mushy.... More

If you are going with friends, bring cash. The restaurant won't split tickets, so don't go with stingy friends. The food is incredible and they serve huge portions. I had the king salmon and it was incredible. The house is packed but the service did not gel rushed. A must visit at Monterey.

We went for lunch and we must have timed it right. There was zero wait; we were led to a table as soon as we walked in. This is not your regular touristy place. It is a simple restaurant with minimal decor in an ordinary location. Freshly baked small sesame loaves were served a few minutes after we were seated.... More

In spite of my terrible rating I had an excellent dinner of blackened salmon, which I thoroughly enjoyed. My husband regretted the meal a couple of hours after he ate it. Need I say more? This is a highly popular restaurant. You need a reservation. It has high ratings. But one bad experience is enough to make us never want... More

This restaurant was very close to the hotel where we stayed. It has fantastic TripAdvisor recommendations, som we went there. And yes it is best to book as there are lots of visitors most of them locally living people, not many tourists. We got a table after less than half an hour. The food was ordinary and good. I liked...

The dishes were very delicious. But it was sorry we had to wait for a long time. We went there on Saturday. The girl receptionist told us that we had to wait for 40~60 minutes. So we went out and came back 30 minutes later. It was sorry for us that she told us we had been called and had... More
