Wonderful breakfast overlooking Monterey Bay in Carmel. Topped with a nice mimosa and some fresh berries the view almost made it difficult to eat. Romantic. Beautiful. A new and special place to go. There used to be several different restaurants in the hotel, now there is just one. Wow!

Dined the first night we arrived in the Carmel area. Watched a specular sunset while enjoying an awesome meal. Decided to repeat the experience the last night of our visit and were not disappointed. Great service both times. Extensive wine list. A bit pricey but worth it. If you drink and don't have a designated driver, suggest taking an Uber... More

Happy hour is 3-6pm with drink specials - we loved the fresh peach sangria and jalapeño margarita. Local Kali Hart Chardonnay for $8 was... More

Dinner at Pacific's Edge is a wonderful experience. The food is excellent - inventive and delicious. The wine was perfect. I can't say enough about the warm and friendly service. And the views are stunning. It's a very special place.

The restaurant has lovely views and the food was good. The main detractor for us was poor service. It was clear they were understaffed and while our server did their best - we were left waiting for over 20 minutes before we were even greeted. Even once we were greeted - they were very hard to find. And we could... More

The views out to the ocean are world class and the food was delicious. The service was poor as we had to wait 20 minutes between courses w no refreshing of beverages or wait staff contact. Also don't go here if you have food allergies as there was no substitutions or any other accommodation. Ended up paying $200 for a... More

In a romantic town like Carmel you can find a host of amazing restaurants - great food, great ambiance, etc. BUT when you add in a magnificent view of the Pacific far below, you are talking about romantic special. Book at table along the window if you can (every seat in the restaurant has a view) and settle in for... More

Spectacular views from bar or restaurant. Service was outstanding in the restaurant, thank you, Allison. Food was sublime, don't miss the octopus appetizer, oysters were fresh. Tuna, steak, and duck entrees melted in the mouth. Great flavor profiles. Croissant Bread Pudding a delightful finish.
