5 star rating An Absolute Must! My wife and I celebrated her birthday this past weekend at The Fish Hopper. From making the reservation to saying goodbye, was one of the greatest and most enjoyable dining experiences in our lives. I made the reservation with Rossi and she was just amazing to say the least. Not only is she personable and professional, Rossi was able to secure a table with a fabulous view. Both my wife and I were "wowed" by the view, service and the opportunity to meet Rossi. We had two people looking after our table, Jerry and Omar. We meant Jerry on our first visit last month. He and Omar made us feel as if they could read our minds. As busy as the restaurant was, Rossi was able to stop by our table so I can give her a sincere thank you while Jerry and Omar made us feel as if we were the only 2 in the restaurant. As for the food, my wife ordered the Filet Mignon with the Lobster Tail. She said it was even more perfect (if that is even possible) than the last time she ordered it. I had to try it also, and yes...cooked to perfection. I, on the other hand, have tried both the 22 oz Bone in Ribeye and the Filet Mignon. Personally, I prefer the ribeye simply because it is a larger cut of meat. All in all, each meal we ordered was impeccably presented and delicious. I would not change a thing. As soon as you cut in the meat, the juices come flowing. If you haven't tried The Fish Hopper on Cannery Row in Monterey, then you are missing a marvelous dining experience. I can't wait for round 3, the ribeye is calling me. Thank you Rossi, Jerry, and Omar for making my wife’s birthday so special. - 1 week ago

5 star rating Food was excellent and the view lovely They were actually doing some limited inside seating which was nice. There is some outside seating just to the right of the entrance. Large windows to view the water. Just inside the entrance is the bar area to the left. Then, as you proceed in past the bar, there is a long seating area to the left, and to the right, there is a long seating area the continues forward and juts out into the bay. You are surrounded by water. We sat at the end of this section. So nice to be surrounded by all the water. Beautiful and peaceful. The food was good and the service was a team effort and very good. Food was tasty and portions were good. Been here before when visiting out of town and will be returning for sure. - 2 weeks ago

5 star rating Great seafood with a wonderful view! We picked a wonderful day to drive from Carmel to Monterey for lunch. Upon our arrival we walked around and ended up at The Fish Hopper for lunch. What a great choice we made. We were welcomed and seated immediately. We had a table right by the windows which was spectacular as we enjoyed a fabulous view of the ocean. Our server Cindy was very friendly and helpful as we perused their menu. My friend ordered prawns and I ordered a salad with scallops. Each of our meals was delicious! After our great lunch we walked around some more and did some shopping which was so fun. I would definitely keep The Fish Hopper on my list of restaurants to return to. - 3 weeks ago

5 star rating Wonderful dishes - wonderful evening Such wonderful dishes with great presentation! We had Cioppino and Ultimate Seafood pasta - both were some of the best we have ever had! We will look forward to our next dinner there. The staff were so gracious and attentive - just a wonderful evening! Looking out at the ocean, watching the otters, seals and birds - just amazing. - 1 month ago

5 star rating Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Fish Hopper! To be honest, wasn’t expecting this in such a touristy area! We sat outside on the water and our waitress was amazing with lots of great tips on the menu. Everything ordered was really good but the standout was the ahi tuna and coconut shrimp salad. Gorgeous presentation with fresh ingredients- pineapple and papaya with avocado and a delicious citrus vinaigrette. My husbands fish and chips were so good with a really nice piece of fish and great fries. Lots of good things on the menu - we will be back! - 1 month ago

5 star rating Great dinner! We were able to get right into the restaurant for dinner, and seated “outside” (heater and a roof) right by the water. We were overlooking the kelp beds so could see otters sleeping. My coconut prawns and my husbands seared Ahi were both wonderful. Highly recommend. - 2 months ago

4 star rating Fried Calamari Heaven It's been awhile since I've enjoyed calamari here and I'm disappointed that I waited so long. The calamari is not oily as is some other places here,but light,tender and very digestible. If you love fried calamari THIS is the Place!! - 2 months ago

4 star rating Great food, wonderful food servers, but not good receptionists. I called this restaurant to make a table reservation prior to my visit; but was told that we didn't have to. Upon arrival, we were asked to wait 35'-45' for a table! The waiters were all polite, hard working ones and the food were yummy.
We wished the restaurant owner/manager could provide the table paper covers for customers as the table were very sticky/dirty. - 3 months ago
