Reservations are a must!!!!I had Cioppino it was loaded with fresh seafood and the broth was amazing. My wife had the Ahi special which was cooked to perfection. We are thinking about going back tomorrow.

We had dinner at the Monterey Fish house, prompted by all the positive reviews. The wait was almost 2 hours without reservation, because the place is so popular and has only 10 tables or so. There is no good waiting area, so you are baking in the sun at a noisy street, not very pleasant, but we figured it must... More

The wife and I walked right in, in the late afternoon very hungry after a long travel from Dallas. We sat at the bar with huge oysters over ice right next to our seats. Bartender is offering us a glass of wine or a beer while shucking these beautiful specimens so I was easily distracted. Anchor Steam on draft and... More

Fortunately we booked as they are known to be very busy most evenings. The service was informative, efficient & friendly. The menu is quite extensive & the food can be cooked to your own preference or combination. Large selection of wine which can be had by the glass. We were in & out within an hour & there is no...

What a gem! Went as a family of four and found a meal that would not disappoint for each of us! Staff was super helpful- our kids split a salad and entree and they brought each out of plates already divided out. Seafood was fresh, wine & beer list was good and prices were very fair and reasonable. Would definitely... More

I had memorable meals mid week both at lunch and dinner. However, lunch at a white table cloth setting was less loud and crowded, portions were bigger, prices same all day. At Dinner I ended up sitting at the bar which was quite lively but not quite as good. Both times the fish was fresher and better than I had... More

We went for lunch. No lines, able to get a table. Great food, good service. Would definitely go back. It looks like dinner can be really crowded though. We weren't able to get a table for dinner. Fresh sea food

If you don't have a reservation and need a table be prepared to wait! But don't worry because it is definitely worth the wait. We were lucky and grabbed a couple of seats at the bar and able to eat there. All of the dishes looked prepared well and cooked to perfection but I highly recommend any dish that includes... More
