Everything about our meal was great. Service was excellent and the food was so delicious. Three of us had calamari and eggplant. Portions are huge. We all had leftovers. Will return when in the area.

We came here last minute, no reservation. One hour wait. No problem, worth the wait. Service was fast friendly and spectacular. Small dining room but they make it work. Halibut, Shrimp, Bouillabaisse, Pasta, Scallops.......... Everything was amazing.

This was a toss up between 3 and 4 stars. I think it's a bit overrated, too crowded, and a little overpriced. In all fairness, the food was definitely above average and service was pretty prompt once we were actually seated. I might have given...More

We had a nice experience at Monterey's Fish House. Out of all of our dishes, there was nothing that stood out that would make us want to come back. This DOES NOT mean that we had a bad experience, really. We ate all of our...More
