We were looking for a DDD type place south of San Francisco and this popped up. It seemed to fit the third D from the outside, but man was the experience inside the door completely different. The food was awesome and the inside actually had a really charming look and feel to it.

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends who visited a couple years ago. The food was very good, but maybe not up to the level of the reviews it has received. We had trouble getting through to make reservations, but once we did we were seated promptly and in a very warm, friendly manner. The service was excellent, too. Very... More

We were in Monterey for a wedding, and wanted a casual dinner the night before. Monterey Fish House was recommended by our Air Bnb Host and it was good. There was a wait for a table, but we ended up at the bar instead, enjoying conversation and oysters with a young man sitting next to us. Very friendly and a... More

After I read the excellent reviews, I thought it's worth of giving it a try during our stay in Monterey. I had a seafood soup with homemade noodle in it. (Sorry, forgot the name) It was soooooo yummy! Actually everything on the menu looks yummy.:-)

...and fresh and friendly. Famous for a reason,especially for locals who know where to bother to go (or to avoid). Reserve to be safe.

Great restaurant that you will wait an hour for a table without reservations. That said, it was worth the wait with several fresh fish selections. We met people from across the country and out of country waiting for a table based on the restaurant's reputation.

Staff and food terrific, but get there early if you don't want to wait. I do not care for seafood, but I always get a great dish anyway!

Great service. Long lines all day long..make reservations. Cosy...seating is one on top of the other but just be friendly...you may meet some nice people. Husband loved the red snapper & char grilled octopus..I got crab cake....not the best I've had like in Atlanta 's "Rays in the city". Homemade pasta dishes looked amazing. Overall...we would eat here again!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a random guy in a cafe whilst we were in Tahoe. He said 'if you're going to Monterey don't miss it'. It was great advice because it's one of the best places we have eaten during our stay in California. The staff were friendly and efficient and knew the menu inside out. We... More
