Quality restaurant in Monterey. One of our best meals since we arrived in California eight days ago.
The food choices were excellent, and the staff were very helpful – – especially our server, Andrea— Who tells us she is originally from Alaska.
The portion sizes were just correct – – not too minimalist, yet not oversized.
And the quality was perfect.
What we liked was Andreas attention to detail, and the fact that she went the extra mile to ensure that we were satisfied in every respect.
And the restaurant had a good wine selection—reasonably priced.
We would certainly recommend anyone visiting Monterey who likes a fish restaurant to put this on the top of their list. - 2 weeks ago
A Meal On a Drink all in One! When I needed a pick me up visiting the area while my wife is in the ICU my barber back home told me about the Ultimate Seafood Bloody Mary. Of course asking how much it is, I really weighed my decision if I should be spending $28 on a drink?! YEA! It's more a drink it's a meal. Crab slider, bacon wrapped prawn, crab stuffed olives, crab in a lemon cup and a fresh oyster. A meal and a drink in one why not?! It helped me put aside my stress and anxiety just for a couple hours. I lived here for 8 years and never even knew about this special delight of a drink meal! - 3 weeks ago
A +++ From the minute we arrived the service was A+. Warmly greeted and were seated with a beautiful night view of the ocean. Food was great. Oysters are a must the best. Crab stuffed shrimp was fantastic. Cioppino was the best. Brianna our server was a gem she was attentive and helpful. Thank you Fishopper for a great experience. - 3 weeks ago
Happy Hour Happiness My daughter and I stopped here for a late lunch and the happy hour had just what we wanted. Fish tacos, crab cake sandwich with fries, and $5 draft beer really hit the spot. And the beautiful views of the bay topped off the positive experience. Definitely a place to enjoy on a trip to Monterey. - 1 month ago

Lunch with a View We stopped in for lunch on a recommendation by a woman at the aquarium. I asked for a seat by the window. We had a great view of the bay. I ordered the clam chowder and crab cakes. Both were delicious. My husband had the snapper sandwich. He said it was very good. After we finished eating, we enjoyed the view. - 1 month ago
Beautiful view; great food This place had had so many write ups, I was concerned it wouldn't live up to the reviews. But it didn't disappoint!! I was greeted promptly and kindly and shown to a table with a gorgeous view of the water. (Many tables have fab views.). There was a fan blowing right on me, so I asked to move and was immediately moved to a table outdoors under a heater. Splendid! Right on the edge of the wrap-around balcony, so not only beautiful views but the lovely sound of the surf. I had a delicious salmon served with risotto and vegetables and a yummy wine recommended by my waiter. The service was attentive throughout, and my meal was gluten free. I will definitely go back! - 1 month ago
A Must My wife asked a local police officer as to lunch options and we were given GREAT advice; on the water of the Steinbeck Plaza and we were treated to awesome views, service, and waterfront views. Our waiter, Chase, recommended a fabulous dish [my best meal in the two weeks visiting this coast] locally sourced red fish, prawns [shrimp for us east coasters] ravioli in a light cream sauce. It was of the right proportion, VERY flavorful and filling. If I didn't have a flight to catch, I’d be going back...until next time. - 1 month ago
Excellent lunch Get there early, if it’s a nice day get a seat outdoors, and enjoy. Quick service, delicious food, great location. Calamari were very good, not great. But stuffed sole and Monterey special were outstanding. - 1 month ago
Drinks with a view Near the aquarium and overlooking the Monterey Bay, a good location for lunch unless you seek a quiet restaurant. We grabbed a high top table in the bar area but still could see plenty of sea. A crazy drink is made here with flames and four shots of various liquors and flavoring. It is called bucket of fire. - 1 month ago
