4 star rating The service here turned a bad night elsewhere into great here Left a highly rated restaurant down the street because it was all pretty bad looking to salvage our night and found it here with Alex, the bartender and server. He greeted us with a great attitude. Suggested items, made sure all was great- even though they were going to close within 15 minutes. Alex made our evening great. Crab cakes and ribs pretty good, nothing amazing. But it shows that the person taking care of you is just as / or more important than the food itself in many situations. - 2 weeks ago

5 star rating Must Visit The Fish Hopper is one of those places in Monterey that you just have to visit when in the area. They are right on the water offering indoor and outdoor seating, great service, clam chowder 'to go' at the entrance, wonderful ambiance, ocean view tables and excellent food. We tried the local snapper sandwich that was The Bomb. Delicious and huge. Bring your appetite if you order this treat. But don't forget to save some room for the signature desserts displayed in the foyer. Must visit. - 3 months ago

4 star rating Very busy, pricey restaurant, very good for the area, service was sub-par service was sub-par, had the regular surf & turf, seasoned and cooked well. Wife had the VERY expensive king crab legs, were very good. finished off with key lime pie and it was very tasty and delicious. - 3 months ago

5 star rating May be the best meal I’ve ever had! Might be the best plate I’ve ever had. Abalone w prawns, vegetables and mashed potatoes. Sat at the bar and Jeff and GO made great pairing recommendations. Great location on Cannery Row on the water. Fantastic dining experience. - 3 months ago

4 star rating Nice but say no to abalone The restaurant and views are fabulous as well as the wait staff. However, our primary reason for selecting to have dinner here over so many other great restaurants was to have abalone. At $79 for the entree, we were expecting an amazing experience! What we had were 2 silver dollar sized abalone that were like rubber. They were awful! We have had abalone many many years ago and it was one of the best meals we ever had. This was a huge (and expensive) disappointment. We mentioned this to our server and suggested that it wasn't prepared correctly but there was nothing more than an apology and would pass along our comments to the chef. The Sand dabs were excellent though and want to make sure I mention that. So the restaurant is great, just don't waste your money on the abalone. - 5 months ago

The halibut was great. The fresh fist was perfectly cooked. Chocolate cake for dessert was wonderful. Lovely evening. - 5 months ago

5 star rating Beautiful Cioppino! What a view over the sea! But the food and service was great too. The Cioppino was lovely- seafood in a tomato broth. Also had a seafood bloody mary that was surprisingly good. - 5 months ago

5 star rating Above and Beyond My family went to celebrate my sister's 80th birthday. We all had delicious seafood dinners, with a gorgeous view, but the most amazing part was the staff. Desiree Auelua-Misa is the asst. General Manager there. I was freezing (came from Seattle, totally unprepared for the temps by the water) and she offered me her jacket to wear during the meal! That was the sweetest thing I think I've had happen in a restaurant and switched my evening from frozen to lovely. Thank you D! - 6 months ago
