“Don't miss this!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

On a recent trip to Monterey to celebrate my birthday, we wanted to pick a special place for my birthday dinner. The choices in the area are vast and we could have gone anywhere in Pebble Beach, Carmel, Monterey or Pacific Grove, but years ago I had lived nearby and enjoyed this view everyday so when we drove by my old apartment and saw the restaurant, not there when I lived nearby, we decided to check the reviews. They were quite positive, and several people mentioned a Sunset Special - a number of entrée choices priced at $10, and happy hour cocktail prices, as long as you are seated and order by 5:30. We thought that sounded perfect, as we would be there to enjoy the sunset across the bay, so we made a reservation for 5pm. When we arrived we were greeted promptly and when we mentioned it was a special occasion, we were seated next to a window overlooking the bay - perfect! My husband chose the meatloaf and I decided on the Salmon. We were both very happy with our choices. Not only did the food come out looking just like the pictures I'd seen in other reviews, but both our choices were cooked and seasoned perfectly. We enjoyed a leisurely, very scenic dinner and finished just in time to take some photos of the area as the sun set. All in all, a wonderful way to spend a special occasion. We would have eaten there again if we had more time, and we will definitely be back.

“Rainbow over the bay!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We had a first class window seat and watched a rainbow form over the bay. Wonderful. Great Service. We did not arrive for sunset special and were a little shocked by the dinner prices. $18 for spaghetti and clams. Clams were tasty but swimming in too much butter for me. Warmed french bread was great. Hot tea. Corn chowder soup. $60 for 2 and no wine included. Little too pricey for this couple. We will have to come back for beer and burgers! The views are great and staff wonderful.

“A Bargain with a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The view here is fantastic. There is a Sunset Special where one needs to be seated by 5:30. The entrees are $10 at this time and delicious. If you want to add a salad or a glass of wine, it is just $3 each. I would advise arriving before 5:30 as there is a waiting list, at least on the weekends. After dinner, take a stroll on the Lover's Point path. This place is definitely a must!

“Great food and local beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We celebrated our 8th anniversary here. We had a wonderful view of the Bay just after sunset. The patio provides for a great view, yet is still warm on a cool March evening thanks to the glass partitions and patio heaters. The best of both worlds. I had the steak frites which was cooked perfectly. My wife's lover's point chicken was equally well prepared. They also had several local beers to choose from. A great place for a special evening or even for beers after a hard day of exploring our beautiful coast. The staff were personable and professional. Overall, a great experience.

“Good food and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Stopped there for a burger and beer at the bar after a long flight. They had several local beers on tap that were great, and the burger was delicious. Lots of fresh vegetables, good quality meat, and a great bun to boot. The bar tender was friendly and gave some good suggestions on things to see in the area.
