Enjoyed a delicious dinner here on a Friday night. Reserved for 6:30 that day without a problem, but by the time we left there were parties waiting. Everyone was happy with their selection! Food, wine and service outstanding. Highly recommend!

We had read that they had wonderful clam chowder soup and stopped by at lunch time. But, clam chowder was not on the menu that day. But the waiter went back to the kitchen and to our surprise we were served a lovely bowl of steaming clam chowder. Loved the unique interior of the restaurant. The other dishes coming out... More

My fiancé and I visited and stayed in Pacific Grove last weekend. I decided to take her to my favorite restaurants including Fandango, Passion Fish, Roy's and Sardine Factory. All great but Fandango took the prize. Everything was delicious and our waiter excellent. Worth every penny.

I have eaten here for several years and never had a bad experience. This time I met a former client and had the Salmon, she had the San-dabs. As always the service was top notch. My Salmon almost melted in my mouth! Her San-dabs were equally as good. A glass of Pinot topped off the meal. WHEN YOU'RE IN PD... More

Out of everywhere we went the 3 nights we were here in Pacific Grove, this by far was our most memorable meal! The Scallops and lobster could not have been any better! Thank you for the awesome experiences!

We celebrated our 50th anniversary in PG recently and had dinner here with some friends. It was our first visit and we were very pleased. The interior setting is lovely. The service and food very good. Wine is a little pricey, as is the food, but the quality and service are exceptional. I look forward to returning soon.

We were with our daughter and son-in-law for dinner. We were seated by a window and the night view was beautiful. The dinner was delicious and our waiter's service was excellent. We even had a wonderful dessert. This is the third time I have been to Fandango's Restaurant, the second for my husband and the first for my daughter and... More

The food was very good but the prices were higher than some of the nicer restaurants than on the pier over looking the water while you eat. Plan on $50 per person with your salad.

It is like walking into an old home (that has been extended!) We sat in the front of the large restaurant and while it was a little noisy as it was crowded, we loved it. Nice choices on the menu, Fish was fresh, and veggies were unimaginative (green bean and roasted potatoes for all specials) but good. Paella was enough... More
