My husband and I spent three nights at the Plaza hotel and spa. From the beginning of our stay we were very happy with the accommodations and friendly service. In particular we were very impressed with the bar staff at Schooners. The bar tender Mike in particular was friendly, warm and very professional. He was so sweet and welcoming and... More

The view from our table was perfect. The food was tasty but the portions were smaller than we like. The food was good quality but expensive.

The bar/restaurant is right on the Monterey Bay. They have a wonderful happy hour and have live entertainment on the balcony. Food is delicious. Lots of sea life to check out! There was a group of 8 and we had no issues and great service, was a Thursday night and place was hopping.

Firs of all, the view is really exceptional, we watched the otters making their kelp "beds" for the evening and had a beautiful bay view, extremely nice. Our meal was very good, the staff was helpful and professional and we had a wonderful evening.

There were no veggie options for dinner, we asked the hostess Menfis to see if we could have a lunch option for dinner, she asked the chef and it was fine. When we arrived for our dinner booking our... More

We had two meals during a stay in the attached hotel. We got a dinner table on the patio, which has a fun view over Monterey Bay. The adults shared their sea food combo meal, which was delicious! It comprised oysters, crab legs, tuna, and shrimps and was definitely worth $85 for two. The kids enjoyed their meals off the... More

My daughter and I split one entree along with a lovely beet salad, vegetable dish and decadent dessert. It was very pleasant and the food was quite good. The wait staff were very kind and helpful.

Some of the best service I have had in years. Table overlooking the ocean, seals, sea lions, and otters. Excellent food including specially prepared pasta to accommodate food preferences. Lovely and memorable dinner.
