Amazing food and service. Nice to not be in the midst of the touristy wharf. We celebrated a milestone birthday. The service was excellent!

My girlfriend and I were actually going to pass up eating here because there was nobody in the dining room. I believe we were the only customers. However, after getting out food and eating it, I'm so glad we stayed. Without doubt our server, whose name is "Co-Co," was the sweetest, nicest, warmest, friendliest, most personable server I've had at... More

The best restaurant and seafood in the area. After sampling all the clam chowder on the wharf, this one beats them all! I will be recommending this place to all my friends! Our favorite dish by far is the crab ravioli, we can't get enough of it. But what really keeps us coming is the exceptional service we get everytime... More

after inquiring about places to eat, we were advised by our hotel receptionist that Massaros & Santo was a great place to eat on the Wharf and frequented by locals. The atmosphere was perfect and our waitress, "Donna", was absolutely wonderful and informative. The house special Seafood dinner was scrumptious and the Sand Dabs were delicious as well. We ordered... More

A lot of new young faces on a busy Saturday evening previewed a perplexing evening. For my wife's birthday, I made reservations at what previously was our frequent dining spot in Monterey.The young staff was inept, sloppily-dressed, and too casual for the restaurant environment. Normally, training is done slowly by introducing one person at a time into the service industry.... More

Visited this restaurant on Halloween. The location is first rate right on the pier and being serenaded by sea lions and seals. The restaurant is quite large although when we visited it was not overly busy. The staff greeting was warm and friendly, very knowledgeable about the various dishes available. The style is American Italian. Somehow I felt a little... More

It was packed so it is obviously a popular place. Clam chowder was great, crab-crusted salmon was delicious and perfectly cooked. BUT the vegetables were over-boiled to a pulp, the dessert order was messed up, and they don't serve decent coffee.

In an out of the way area of Cannery Row, free parking, excellent food. Always take visitors there because of the local flavor, service, and non touristy atmosphere.
