We went there for dinner and asked for a quite table away from the bar. The service was excellent, the food was very good, nice athmosphere. The place was very busy but the service was fast. Highly recommended.

We ate here for New Year's Eve while visiting Monterey. The food was very good, the atmosphere inviting, and the staff was helpful. Even though it was New Year's Eve, the staff allowed us to take our time and did not rush us through dinner.

Our family of six dinned there on a Saturday evening. Did not have a reservation but, we were quickly seated. Ordered their super scrumptious Strawberry Daiquiri and Grey Goose Special cocktails and classic Martini. The bread and oil/balsamic vinegar dip was excellent. I ordered the...More

Booked a table for dinner based on TA reviews. We weren't disappointed! Cool decor, friendly staff (Josiah in particular), delicious food. We had shrimp tacos and the Tough Guy pizza, along with a Firestone 805 blonde beer - all very tasty! And not badly priced,...More
