“Good night out with wife here”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Nice simple restaurant. Staff was very friendly, even the other waitresses that were not serving us all were very nice. I got the Sand Dab special and my wife got the lamb. Both dinners were perfectly cooked and very tasty. Prices are reasonable. I would come back for sure.

“What a wonderful recommendation!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

The GM of our B&B recommended this wonderful little cafe to us for lunch--and was he ever on the mark! Everything we ate was delicious! My wife had red pepper soup and half of a turkey sandwich. I had a salad with local fish. It was ALL good. Someone at this little cafe really knows how to cook. We will be back before we leave Pacific Grove!

“Red House on Lighthouse”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was a family dinner during the week of the Historic Monterey Auto Races, so the view out the window was especially winning with a variety of beautiful vintage autos. I enjoyed the Lamb Chops with creamy mashed potatoes and baby brussels sprouts. My husband had the portobello mushroom sandwich stuffed with goat cheese and surrounded by a colorful salad. The portions were perfectly sized and delicious. The in laws had the salmon. They are locals and mentioned that the cheeseburger was a treat. The service was wonderful, our waitress was funny and professional. If I had to change anything, it would be the soft bread that came with the delightful olive tapenade before the meal. They were running low on bread that night and I noticed different bread at another table and it was MUCH better with some texture and flavor.
The wine list was varied and well priced.

“Friendly staff, delicious food with Pacific Grove charm”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

If you're going for excellent food, great service and the charm that is Pacific Grove, don't pass up Red House Cafe. This family-friendly cafe has great food and attentive staff. The breads they use for the sandwiches are fresh and flavorful. I had the pork tenderloin sandwich. It couldn't have been more tender, moist or tasty! One of my traveling companions had the grilled cheese (think grown-up grilled cheese with fontina and artichoke hearts on toasted sourdough) and my other companion had the chicken breast sandwich. They also reported that their sandwiches were beyond ordinary.

“Red Gem”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This red house located within walking distance of many hotels/inns is worth a try for reasonably priced very good selection of food. Service was quick and friendly.
