“Always a top spot to dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

I was with my husband on one of his frequent golf trips to the Monterey area. Fandango is always on our list for at least one meal. Service is good, food is great, Grand Marnier Souffle is to die for.

“Not perfect...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

...just a little bit better than perfect. On a one-to-ten point scale, Fandango's about an 18.

The cassoulet is to die for and the 26oz Porterhouse is perhaps the best steak I have ever eaten in the United States. Service is faultless. Fanango's a delight and proof that when you work to a standard you will be rewarded.

“always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

The varied menu of Mediterranean dishes, the warm atmosphere and the staff...really a good place for a quiet lunch when it's foggy or rainy (our favorite time)..or for a romantic dinner. A favorite is any fish on special or any mediterranean dish. Good wine list, good bar and a great interior decor. The downside is the view of the parking lot, the city parking meter checker (watch out during the day).

“Wonderful Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have eaten here numerous times, and have had wonderful food. The restaurant is very large, and we never see any empty tables, just proves how popular this place is. Food is extremely good. The wait staff has not always been the best, but we go for the delicious food. Great variety, food has always been consistent, very fresh, and a must always go-back-to restaurant. Highly recommend.
