“Yum!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We made reservations for 5:30 PM on a weekday, and got there at 5:15 and were seated immediately. The ambiance was good, the servers were on top of things, and were very knowledgeable about everything. The food was outstanding: Smoked Oysters, the Ahi, clam chowder, the seafood scampi that went with the Ahi, and the chocolate dessert were just in outstanding every bite. We will definitely be coming back again and again.

“Awesome swordfish”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Don't hesitate to dine here. Friendly and helpful service. Fresh fish at great price. The wine menu was impressive and reasonable. There was a lively crowd but didn't interfere with our conversations. Do make reservations as others suggested.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We had been here 15 years ago and remembered the good food. The food is still great, ambiance exciting and service excellent. A Monterey treasure.

“Great food!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Nice restaurant, good food. Had a nice size swordfish steak with veggies and pasta. The pasta was good but for grilled swordfish I would have preferred something different. Service was great and prices were reasonable.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We went on a week night, and sat right down, no wait. Appetizers were great. Steaks were on display, aging. I had a ribeye, medium rare, and it was good, but to be honest wasn't as good as I thought that a dry aged steak would be; not sure how they were cooked, I think they were put on a gas grill, my steak didn't have the flavor I expected. It was good but not oh my gosh good, which is the impression you get when you enter the restaurant. Everything else was excellent.
