We went to International Cuisine on our last trip to Pacific Grove. Although it looked appealing from the description and the apearance it was a real disappointment. The service was awful! After being seated it was at least 10 minutes, a waitress finally came over. She never greeted us or apologized for having us wait so long it was not overly crowded). She asked for our food order first and then our drink order. I asked for a glass of wine and a glass of water. I never got the water at all.

The food was fair and a little over priced for what we had. The waitress never came to the table even once to check on us after our food was delivered (even though she walked by several times).

I would not recommend this restaurant on any level. There are too many other nice places to eat in the area.

Good place for families. Wide variety of food, poor variety of beer and wine. Caesar salad tastes nothing like a Caesar should, too much mushy cheese and limp lettuce. Salmon salad was good according to family. Kids chicken fingers were real pieces of chicken fried perfectly, not frozen kind you find in lots of places. The Saturday night we went they had live music which was fun, though loud. Entire staff friendly and engaging. Overall an okay experience but wouldn't go for the food.

Such a variety of foods..........very good. I loved the Mediterranean Vegetarian Sampler (I am not vegetarian, but it was delicious).

The two of us had a cup clam chowder, half Greek salad/half Caesar salad, and shared a seafood combination platter. The chowder was wonderful, the salad was refreshing and well-balanced, the halibut and salmon were done just right, and the grilled shrimps were fresh and juicy. The food was great with generous portions. The waitress was very friendly and helpful to everyone.

Widest variety you will find on anyone's menu. Nothing fancy here, just good food with enough variety that everyone in your largest group will find something that they like. The place is always busy, so be prepared for a short wait.
