The service was excellent, the food amazing and it has one of the best views of the bay. The patio area is nice, but bring a jacket even in summer, because it can get chilly. The space heaters do help with this.

I was heading out to grab a coffee one morning while staying at the hotel and the front desk suggested I try their coffee. I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious their cappuccino was. I also grabbed breakfast there both mornings (mainly because nothing else was open at the time I was eating) and it was decent. The service was... More

We hadn't planned to dine here because of a couple so-so reviews, but we had 3 really nice experiences. I encourage travelers to eat there. The space is nice: open, contemporary, bright, every table having a view of the bay. At night, you can sit out on the deck near a fire sipping your drink. The first night we had... More

The C Restaurant is great. It has excellent views, service and food. Steak and eggs were great. A great place to fuel up before hitting the Aquarium.

In keeping with the five star review I gave the hotel, the room service meal was prepared to perfection. I was truly impressed with the Intercontinental Clement, Monterey as a whole.

I had been to this place three years ago and it was excellent! Great bar, great food. Today, it was a disappointment. Horrible service, the few small plates we tried over several days were disappointing at best, and the primary reason it even hits three stars is because it was in the hotel where I was staying and it has...

No more crab or lobster on the breakfast menu. The menu was unremarkable except for the hangar steak and eggs but the black beans were still a bit hard. They did to add pancakes or waffles with whole grains.

We have eaten several meals at the C restaurant. Food is always fresh, well prepared, delicious. The wait staff is excellent, knowledgeable. We have tended to eat lighter fare or enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio. The main restaurant has big glass windows looking out onto the water.

We ordered the triple scoop ice-cream from the restaurant, and it was not bad. The flavors, were clean and fresh.

We had breakfast a few times and lunch twice at C restaurant. The menu and quality of food were fantastic. It is a lovely setting and the staff is very attentive and helpful. The views are spectacular. Great bar and they are happy to customise drinks. Good wine list. Would recommend.
