Foursquare Tips

  • Pri fixe is all day Sunday and Monday, great deal.
  • Don't miss Lobster Night! Every Friday night starting at 5pm.
  • Excellent food and awesome service. The abalone bisque is fantastic too!
  • The bowls of soup are huge, so stick with a cup if you plan on having a big entree
  • Sardines: they're not only delicious but good for you. Find The Sardine Factory's recipe for smoked sardine salad in Lidia's Italy in America.
  • The abalone bisque, steamed clams, and calamari were standouts on an awesome menu. Props for serving a Moscow Mule in a proper copper mug.
  • Not too hungry? Split a salad and an entree- the perfect amount of food.
  • You must try the abalone bisque.
  • The Italian Trio dessert was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Excellent homemade spumoni and tiramisu, and very good cannoli too.
  • Scallops over polenta was absolutely delicious! Service was high level, Daniel really took care of us.

  • James is amazing. Best server ever. Amazing food. My favorite place in Monterey.
  • Great for a date night or a very special occasion. The abalone is excellent.
  • Love to hang out in the bar to listen to David Conley.
  • Unique experience of absolutely tasteless seafood. And please don't even try their oysters - it will ruin your friendship with those tender creatures. Bread - yes, take bread :)
  • Don't come here to eat. However the place itself is nice, staff is friendly. Having a cocktail here may be a good thing. But don't eat!!!!
  • The most tasty food - complementary olives and bread. Don't even think about ordering big seafood plate. Oysters were ok, lobster and prawns didn't gave taste at all, squid was over-marinated.
