I had swordfish and it was the best I have had in years! The calimari appetizer was excellent as usual and my boyfriend had the Petrole Sole with risotto and said it was excellent as well, and the dessert was as beautiful as it was delicious.
We mentioned that we were celebrating our 25th anniversary and they went out of their way to make it a memorable evening. The food was great, we had a wonderful window table and they comped us an appitizer and dessert. They really know how to please their customers.
The food here is excellent! The service is top notch. The views are incredible. This is a true icon of Monterey, well known for the great food. It is not cheap, but it is reasonable. We always get full, they portions are large, just the way we like it.
We stumbled upon this gem while shopping along the wharf. With all the handing awards saying Best clam chowder - it wasn t difficult to decide. We weren t disappointed! We had the best oysters there, the seafood was fresh and not to mention the chowder - we would come back again! It s our no.1 rated restaurant for our entire US roadtrip!
Having checked out the restaurant on Tripadviser, we specifically made a reservation for dinner at the Grotto. The waitress attended to our every need and the meal was as wonderful as had been recommened on Tripadviser. The manager- owner was very welcoming to all guests and spent some time chatting to us about our travels. He was glad to hear that we had made a special effort to dine at his restaurant. We really enjoyed the seafood, the ambience and service.
Exceptional service, nice atmosphere and kid friendly. Wasn t sure at first but after we were seated, the waiter was gracious and on top of things. No wait, and food came pretty quickly. We all enjoyed our meal. Especially the organic items for our side dishes. A bit pricey but it s more because of location and tourists. If it was cheaper, we would probably eat there all the time.
