My husband and I have been to Monterey Bay before but not the past few years and decided to try again.Unfortunately, we are did not have a great experience, but I think it was due to our waiter. We were sandwiched in a two seater with two other couples surrounding us, making it hard for any sense of privacy. The two tables around us had a wonderful, pleasant and attentive waitress. For some reason, we had an absent, apathetic, waiter who failed to listen to our requests. We asked for lobster salad with dressing on the side and he brought salad with dressing mixed throughout. When he returned with a different salad, it was much smaller and less attractive with the lobster dumped in the salad. I asked for no lemon in my chicken and was served chicken with lemon inside the skin. I had to send it back and ended up with no meal. The taste of my husband's food, however, was good and the dessert was delicious. The menu certainly had many seafood choices. I am sure if we had a different server our experience would have been different. There were two flies and a fruit fly that pestered us repeatedly throughout the meal which made me uneasy. I'm not sure when we will return. It's a lot of money for less than impeccable service.
