We had a group of 12 and everyone raved aqbout the quality and quantity of the food. I had the roasted chicken sandwich and it was piled high with thick sliced chicken, actually roasted and not just warmed up, which was so generous I took half back to the motel. My wife and I shared for lunch with some salad... More

We were looking for a decent breakfast place on our way to big Sur. This house converted cafe is very good. I ordered banana pancakes and they are nice and fluffy. Got Vermont maple syrup and it is nice too. The food is very good and our waitress was very quick. Service is very good as well. I am giving... More

Angela is a waitress at Red House. She is the most awesome employee anybody could have in any capacity. I would love to steal her for my business. My friends and I are there Tues. mornings so come say hi to us. And Angela. She is the reason, besides the food, we come once a week. You'll love her too.

The food here is average, but the wait times are long. People seem to love this place, but you can get similar food at many of the local restaurants. Tip, don't wait for a table, try somewhere else.

Food is very fresh and reasonably priced and the atmosphere so much better than Carmel. People are much more friendly in Pacific Grove and Monterrey as apposed to Carmel.IMO

Two friends and I had lunch at Red House Cafe at the recommendation of the property manager at the house we were renting. It was a delightful experience. I usually don't eat lunch or just have a light snack midday, so I wasn't very hungry. Too bad, because the menu items selected by my companions looked so good, and received... More

My husband and I came here for lunch. A customer recommended the grilled cheese sandwich and I'm happy I listened. It's the best grilled cheese sandwich I've had! My husband got the mushroom sandwich which was really good as well. The decor is really cute and vintage and service excellent. Highly recommend this place.

This place had really good reviews, so we wanted to try it. We went there for dinner. It was okay food, but for the price I think I was expecting it to be a little better. However, the wait staff was wonderful. They were very kind and had exceptional service.
