Great food and views!

We drove from San Jose to Monterey in driving rain, ending here for a late lunch. As we were seated, the rain stopped, the clouds cleared, and we were graced with a beautiful rainbow! This was an indicator of what lunch would be like, and we were at the end of the rainbow...

The menu looked fantastic on-line and I knew I had to try it! Even though this a fish restaurant, I had the artichoke ravioli and it was spectacular. The service was excellent, the wine was very good, and the ambiance on the water was perfect.I highly recommend eating here if it works for your budget.

Wonderful seafood and broad menu to choose from. View from the patio over the water is amazing. Service team was fast, friendly and courteous. Hugo was great and very funny. Ask for his table for a fun experience.

This is one of many, many places along cannery row but it's at the ocean end of the pier and the view is spectacular!! It's very open-most of it is like sitting on a deck watching the waves crash under you....!!! I saw a couple with a small dog at their feet eating lunch-i love that!!! They have a lot... More

Their no cell phone policy and please keep your kids quite might have shocked us at the beginning, but when we finally sat down, we actually understood why these policies where in place. You are there to eat and enjoy their cusine, not listen to other people yapping on the phone and children crying is an added bonus. Our three... More

Had dinner with colleagues who've been here before. All of us had a great time, the food was well prepared, fresh seafood and good espresso. I had the mahi mahi fish with wonderful polenta and enjoyed very much.

We ate our last meal before heading to the airport at Fish Hoppers. It certainly did not disappoint. Not only was the waitstaff accommodating but the food was delicious as well. We had the Swordfish dish and the Dungeness crab stuffed prawn pasta, both complimented with a nice 1/2 bottle of local wine. To top our Fish Hopper experience there... More
