Just had lunch. Blackened rock fish on rice with veggies. Super good food. Waiters are friendly and on the ball. It also is a fish market, so you can see their operation and it made me feel this was a real fresh fish place.

We were looking for an affordable seafood place during our weekend stay in Monterey. I had read really good reviews of this place and couldn't wait to check it out. We arrived right before the dinner crowd and managed to get seated in about 20 minutes. The restaurant is small and casual. However, service was efficient and friendly. We were... More

We stumbled onto this little place when visiting the Monterey Bay aquarium, as it is right around the corner. It is FANTASTIC..! The fish was so fresh, tender, juicy, and DEEE-LICIOUS that I want to go back to Monterey, just to go back here to eat. We tried the Chilean Sea Bass, and my partner had an order of the... More

We ate here with our friends who knew the local restaurants well.We had just finished the aquarium and it was a short easy walk.The wait was about an hour.It seemed very popular with locals.They should think of adding more tables.This is also a fresh fish market. The wait was worth it though. I had the crab sandwich and my husband... More

We visited back in March and after reading the reviews here, we decided to give it a shot for dinner. We were so impressed. Very low-key diner/fish market style place with great non-greasy fried to perfection seafood (also available prepared other styles). I had a combo plate; my son had crab cakes and my husband had the seafood pasta. Huge... More

Saw this place was rated fairly well on trip advisor and wasn't far from aquarium, as we walked up I thought uh oh...but the food was really good and a good value! I had the fish sandwich with grilled local rock cod and my fish was perfectly cooked, my 5 year old had the fish and chips and practically cleared... More

A fish restaurant that serves a frozen farm raised salmon from Canada?!?!?! Seriously?!?! Okay, maybe the rest of the fish they serve there, is local & fresh, but don't get the salmon. The service was good. I will personally would never come back. P. S. Maybe you should serve fish by the season!

For years I have been coming here every time I am in Monterey. It is a few blocks walk from the acquarium and is a less touristy than some of the other restaurant nearby. I tend to order the same thing so I cannot speak for the entire menu. I may have tried one of the pastas a long time... More

We walked several blocks from the aquarium to get here. There was a line waiting to get a table. It was well worth it. The seafood was really fresh and delicious. We had clams, scallops, squid, and fish. I only wish we would have had time to go back again!

Vacationing from Seattle, we looked online and found Sea Harvest. Unbeknownst to us, it was right around the corner from our hotel. It has a great seafood market if you want to make your own, but we decided to have dinner at the restaurant. Ordered scallops and chips, the seafood combination, and seafood fettuccine. All were delicious. Crisp, lightly battered... More
