“A Hidden Gem Too Good to Be True”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2009

Our last night in Monterey and the dining find that, in our opinion, puts "C" as the number one restaurant on Cannery Row - heck, maybe the whole town. They offered a $29 special with two courses (three choices for each course) and our group tried them all. Yum! We like to bring our own wine and found corking fee high at $20, but if you bring wine from "A Taste of Monterey" there is a reduced corking fee. Hats off the the Sous Chef on duty our night - Michael Clark - good job and keep it up.

“Fabulous food at terrific price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2009

I ate at this restaurant about six times during my stay at the hotel in February. The calamari is the best I've had anywhere. The homemade ketchup is worth ordering a burger and fries to try. For breakfast, try the delicious Clement Benedict.

“Great Food On Cannery Row!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2009

i have recently have had the pleasure of dinning at the The C restaurant on Cannery Row. To all you scallop lovers this dish hit the mark in every way!! Scallops cooked to perfection, properly done! can't say enough of the bed of mushroom "stew" in lay on. Will do "almost" anything to have more of that! The hint of truffle oil was the "cherry on top". Got to start with the very delicious bowl of chunky clam chowder! New england of corse! The Chef is in his right field, keep on cookin! We will be back for sure.The Hotel is beautiful every seat has a view. Staff was friendly and made you feel welcome. rrr
