Best dining experience in Monterey in fifty years. All six of us agreed that the food, service and view overlooking the bay were excellent. Best Valentines meal ever.

We've been here many times, and the seafood is very good every time, and the wine is excellent. The Caesar salads and the clam chowder out of this world.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. It reminded us of Monterey Fish House but with a view and full bar. The service was great, the food delicious and the setting nice. It is somewhat hidden in the pier but worth the search. We go every time we go to Monterey.

We enjoyed a New Years Eve dinner for the third year at Massaro & Santos. This special venue sits on the bay near the Coast Guard Pier and is surrounded by water on three sides. I ordered the prime rib, and my wife the sea bass. They were both prepared to our liking and the price was very reasonable (especially for New Years Eve. This is one of the best kept culinary secrets in Monterey. Call for a reservation and request a window table. You will not be disappointed.

We always stop in here for lunch when we come into Monterey, and every time, the food is perfect. Friday they had Tomato Ginger soup, and yes, it's homemade. Their Clam chowder is also one of my husbands favorites! The chicken in the salad was flavorful and moist, and everything is always fresh. So happy we found this place so many years ago!
