When we arrived in town we were very hungry. Two people at the front desk of the hotel recommended Monterey's Fish House. We called immediately, as they were opening in 30 minutes. We were able to get reservations. When we arrived there were people waiting in line to get in. It's a popular little place. The food was fabulous and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. The small, nondescript appearance is misleading. Once you get inside and experience the great food and service, you'll see why this place is a must. We enjoyed it so much, we went back the next evening. Wish we had another night on our trip so I could go back and order... More

Seated within 10 minutes of reservation time, great considering as busy as they were. Service was quick and staff treated us very well. 5 in the party and every entree was exceptional. Must be cooked over some kind of wood, great flavor without over powering the seafood. Appetizers were great especially the seared tuna. Mud Pie for dessert is a... More

This place is not big to begin with and is a very popular place to eat fresh fish. I made reservations for as soon as they open and they have a long line of people outside waiting prior to opening. I do recommend long as u make those reservations or you might be waiting awhile if at all. I had... More

We knew how popular this restaurant is so made a reservation and arrived a few minutes early. It did not disappoint! We started with drinks, and then two orders of fried calamari. That was so good that it could have been our entire meal! The four of us each ordered something different from the dinner menu -- some grilled, some... More

Food was amazing! Scallops with homemade linguini. Freshest bread! Will be back! Only downside is table butted up to another, basically sitting with people we didn't know. A bit awkward.

Husband and I had dinner at the Fish House for the first time last week on the recommendation of friends. My husband ordered the cioppino and I ordered the special of crab cake & crab ravioli in a light tomato cream sauce. Both dishes were ample. The cioppino did not live up to Phil's Fish Market's cioppino thus the average... More

This place was packed on a Wednesday and probably is every night, so I must assume my experience isn't typical. But after reading good reviews and getting excited for the meal, it was really a downer. First, made a reservation and no table ready. No big deal, except they asked us to wait in chairs where busboys had to walk... More
