This restaurant is out on the end of a long pier in the Monterey harbor. A good seafood location. Great views and atmosphere. Friendly staff will see to your needs. Wide selection of menu items. Good food. A good touristy place for dinner or lunch!

I like the location at the end of the wharf, providing a great waterfront view. The food was good and reasonably priced. Service was a little slow.

Nice to get a table on the window looking out at Monterey Bay. You see seals, pelicans, seagulls, and many other birds. Its a great view while eating. Staff here is very friendly. Food was good. I got the Sand dabs, I wish they had put more sauce on the dish. Wife got Fish and Chips it was good. Jose was our waiter and could not have been better, very nice. Hostesses were also very nice.

We happened upon a quaint restaurant on our walk to the end of Fisherman's Wharf to watch our boys in a regatta at the end of the pier. Rappa's had panoramic views of Monterey Harbor and we were seated at farthest most corner to have a 300 degree view of all the harbor . Sea lions and sea otters were feeding just outside our window tables swimming in the path of the fishing boats sailing by. The restaurant had very attentive and friendly waiters and served a tasty Bloody Mary. We ordered Prawns and Scallops Fettuccine served in a Spicy Vodka Cream Sauce on the lunch special menu at $14.95 and received complimentary calamari appetizer. The pasta had a delicious tangy sauce and the waiter gladly shaved fresh parmesan upon our request. The calamari was standard for a seafood restaurant, served with cocktail sauce and a tartar sauce. The view was simply outstanding and prices were reasonable.

After playing tourist for the day in Monterey, we decided to have a late lunch and stopped in at Rappa's. The staff outside were friendly and offering $1 wine tastings. We looked at the menu, especially the lunch specials, and decided to go in. We sat at the lower "seafood" bar to get a good view. We were offered menus and placed a drink order which came somewhat quickly. But things went downhill from there. We asked for the specials menu and the waiter shrugged and said he'd "try" to find some. In the meantime a group of two couples sat down next to us. They not only got the specials menu (after asking) but also received water, a free appetizer and very attentive service (none of which we received). He completely ignored us for the next ten minutes. Finally we gave up and paid for our drinks and walked out. We were ready to eat a large meal and instead spent a large sum on a great meal at Old Fisherman's Grotto nearby. Now that was five stars!
