Very pleasant and relaxed setting, great service and a local favorite

We've had lunches here a number of times over the years and the place always seems to be a bit better each time we return. The menu is appealing and the food is excellent . . . fresh and artfully served. Good coffee, great service and a well lit and casual setting top it all off.

My wife and I eat (mostly breakfasts) at the Victorian Corner in Pacific Grove often. We feel it is the best in Pacific Grove. My favorite is salmon eggs Benedict. The salmon used is caught by owner Paul Aliotti during his annual fishing (from his own boat) in Alaskan waters. The service is fast, efficient and friendly. We are on... More

The window view where you can see all and all can see you. Great food, wonderful ambiance, efficient staff. And it wasn't all that expensive.

Since my family began going to Pacific Grove in 2002, this is one of our old favorites. Comfortable, unpretentious, consistent food quality, great service, terrific owners! It's an easy place to take kids and they have lots of interesting historical PG pictures on the walls. Plenty of street parking and a public lot very close by. When we visit grandma,... More

This is a family place in the third generation of family. Our only disappointment was that we didn't see the specials board in time to order from it, and our waitress didn't call our attention to the specials. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food good. But it's the atmosphere that really makes it; you feel _welcome_ here.

I ate there twice but only because of the convenience. Both meals were okay but nothing that great. The portions are definitely large, but it wasn't so good that I wanted to take any with me. I felt the items were overpriced. The waitresses were very good and very nice.

My wife and I just had dinner at Victorian Corner tonight. The dining room is very clean and nice. We were immediately greeted upon entering, and seated immediately. There were two nice women who both seemed to be a combination of hostess, server, busser etc.. It was nice in that they both seemed very interested to make sure we had... More

We have eaten breakfast here twice. The crab Benedict was excellent; the service good. Prices are rather high, however. Servings are generous.

Victorian Corner is a lovely place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sitting on Lighthouse Avenue -- the main street of Pacific Grove -- it offers a great view of the Monterey Bay. Plus, the gracious servers deliver good food in a cheerful atmosphere. A favorite of the locals, it also pleases visitors enough so that they return every time they're... More

The location is nice, on the corner with lots of glass and sunshine. The service is friendly, and the food OK. Nothing special, but nice to visit once in a while.
