We went here for lunch with a group of friends. It was very good. It wasn’t the best but I’d try it again. I had a very good and stiff Mule. Everyone thought it was good.

Nice ambiance, slow service, we waited 25 minutes for the appetizer calamari , food was good, pork chop tasted good a little fluffy, sea bas was excellent, pasta with shrimp was plenty for 2 persons, scallops were cooked just right. The staff was excellent. Dessert...was out of this world.More

The C has some very good dishes such as the sushi and calamari. I ordered the clam chowder and found that there was something unpleasant about the taste. I asked for a different soup and the waiter brought it without question. We hung out at...the table way too long for lunch but never felt they wanted to get us to leave.More

Fish tacos are good but not enough meat. Clam chowder is good. Calamari and ceviche for appetizers. Full bar is available inside this restaurant as part of the Intercontinental Hotel.

We dined at the C Restaurant on Cannery Row in Monterey California. We had reservations. (It was my wife’s birthday) The reason I mention this is that reservations matter. We not only got a confirmation call back on the night of the dinner, our table...was saved with a “reserved” sign, I appreciated. We were on vacation and I had other things on my mind and was pleased that the C handled the dining details. Parking is tough in Monterey, but thankfully the C offers complimentary parking. It’s a brief walk from the lot to the restaurant which is modern and spacious in design. We ordered the Ceviche. I’ve lived in Lima Peru and I know the plate well and I have to say, the C’s Ceviche, while not exactly Peruvian in style, is fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. It was fresh, filled with a good cut of fish and plentiful (We couldn’t finish it all) The Clam chowder was good. I’m a New Englander and my standards on clam chowder are extremely high but it was okay, standard white table cloth restaurant clam chowder. Same with the calamari. For my entrée I had the day boat scallops, four large well prepared scallops served with Caramelized Fennel, Dungeness Crab Whipped Potato, Blood Orange Emulsion. Again, fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. My wife, Mary, had Mary’s Free Range Chicken Breast with wild Mushroom Risotto, Carnaroli Rice, Grilled Kale, Natural Jus. She loved it. The staff, well trained and professional, handled Mary’s birthday well and were kind and considerate of us. Our waiter was informed on the menu and made perfect wine suggestions. So when in Monterey the C Restaurant is our go-to place.More
