We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was imaginative and very well prepared. Service was friendly and prompt. I had a half chicken roasted which had been brined or marinated and was some of the best chicken I've every had. We recommend this restaurant.

Advised to go here by a local and it was crowded even though we were early for lunch. From the unusual iced tea to the unusual fare the calmari steak was excellent as was the butternut soup and the bread. Can't speak highly enough of it.

Just amazing breakfast. Chorizo/egg mix awesome. The salmon/potato pancake dish was incredible. Staff very friendly, service was quick. Unfortunately, bkfst not available all day or we'd have eaten there every day.

We went to Red House Cafe based on advise from Trip advisor for dinner and enjoyed sitting outside on the porch area. We enjoyed a glass of wine and our meal - we ordered musssels and some other small plate items. Service was pleasant and friendly. It is in downtown Pacific Grove and we were able to find free parking... More

We had lunch there the other day with relatives, and everyone enjoyed their meal. Our relatives have eaten there many times, and said it would be good. They were right. I had an abalone steak sandwich that was not only tasty, but the steak was large and cooked just perfectly. It came with a nice side salad. It can be... More

Stopped there because we were searching a place for lunch and we saw a line of people waiting so it is a good sign. Food and service exceptional, a very nice place. Satisfaction guaranteed.

We were warmly received on a busy night; treated with the greatest congeniality by our server, Sarah; and all four in our party enjoyed an excellent meal, with very nice/affordable wine and a delectable desert. What's not to like!

My wife and I were staying in Pacific Grove to meet with friends and we had a night off from them. We had a list of restaurants from our hotel that included the Red House Cafe. We wanted to go somewhere for dinner with a casual atmosphere and with recognizable menu items (you can't be too careful in California). So... More

Ate here for Breakfast and Dinner. Lovely decor, friendly staff, great menu. Food was lovely. We wanted to book a table for dinner, but were told that they didn't accept bookings for small parties (we were 2), but they did recommend that we called ahead. We didn't do this (British phone), and when we arrived, we found people queuing out... More
