“Great Restaurant On The Water”
Reviewed January 16, 2009

Great restaurant right on the water and right next door to Monterey Bay Aquarium.

This is a really cool place and truly has some thing for everyone. We first went there for Happy Hour, who can say no to $3.75 glasses of wine. We got stuck talking to Luis at the bar, who was so incredibly friendly so we ended up staying for the whole evening.

We took a table by the window and our server was Serena. She was absolutely awesome. Her suggestions and recommendations made this evening a home-run! Ask for her, she rocks!!!

The wine list was great, not to big and not to small. The wines are focused on the local areas, which is nice. The wine list was relatively nicely priced. We both had the flights of champagne. What an awesome and fun concept. You got to try these!!

Now to the food, we had the Scallops and the lamb. Both dishes were cooked perfectly and I can still remember the taste when I close my eyes!! The chef should be proud of what they accomplished this night!!!

We then moved to the courtyard and enjoyed a cocktail by the fire pits. What an incredible finish to and incredible evening.

Another great thing is that they validate parking, including VALET! I did not know this, but will definitely use this feature next time I come. It will be very soon!

Took 20+ years to build apparently, but this was worth the wait!!!
