While on a trip to Monterey, CA to visit family, we asked a local business for a recommendation for dinner, especially for fish. We were told to check out the Sea Harvest Fish Market and Restaurant a few blocks from the Aquarium. We were not disappointed. They quickly sat our family group of six, but the waiter took some time to get to us It was well worth it. Everybody at the table was completely satisfied with dishes ranging from shrimp to crab cakes to Red Tail to Halibut. We beat the dinner crowd, and it appeared the number of people that got tired of waiting and left matched the number that were seated; small place. Since it is a fish market they had a wide selection of fresh fish from which to choose. Great place with reasonable prices.

Decided to go here after hearing good things about it on the internet. We had to wait a while to be seated, and then were ignored for a reasonable amount of time, but everything after that more than made up for those minor inconveniences.

The food was delicious, and tasted fresh, unlike a lot of other meals that we had.

It was a very quaint small cafe style restaurant and the prices were excellent for what we had.

The Sea Harvest was a really good place to get fresh seafood in Monterey without dressing up and paying an arm and a leg. It isn't the best restaurant in Monterey, but it is very good value for your money. They don't take reservations and it is always crowded so be prepared for a wait if you go during busy dinner hours. It is worth the wait. The place is small with only a handful of tables, but the service is quick and turnover seems to go by quickly. While you wait, you can browse their fresh seafood counter and decide on what sea delicacy you might enjoy for dinner. They also have a stocked shop with condiment (tartar sauces and cocktail sauces etc...) you can purchase and take with you. It was a very relaxing dinner with no dress code in a diner style setting.

Excellent food, lovely clam chowder. No pretensions, just good food. Very nice atmosphere, at lunch time lots of families, everybody happy.

This is also a fish market where people come to buy fish to cook at home.

This place is small and gets crowded for dinner, everything is simple, the place, the staff and the menu selection, and not as expensive as elsewhere. The seafood was fresh and tasty and we enjoyed our meal. I had a salmon and it was one of the best in the vacation and the cheapest.
Had dinner 3 times in Monterey and this was our least expensive and most enjoyable meal in Monterey. Go here only for the food, if you want decor, service and scenery go somewhere else.
