I brought my kids to Monterey for their first time and searched for weeks for great restaurants that are by or on the water. This place was PERFECT and looked exactly like the pics I saw online.
One of my boys has severe food allergies and Autism and eating out can be very difficult. Our server, Eric, was AMAZING and patient and really went the extra mile to ensure my son’s food was “safe” and I am just so incredibly thankful for his kindness.
We will definitely be back and had a wonderful time.
The food was very reasonably priced and was delicious.
Good food and great service!!! Loved the overall look of the restaurant!!
Manuel is an awesome waiter! We really enjoyed the whole experience!
The food was great the service was so so could of been better .
Food was good. Service was slow. I server for around 12 tables. Understaffed. Overall still was enjoyable.
It was very busy getting out if the aquarium. It seems most restaurants don’t have the staff but Torito was able to accommodate us. Decent Mexican food but the views of the ocean were amazing!
Dee was a great server. Enjoyed atmosphere. Was busy but it was a great experience overall.
Great service! We did have an issue with the daily specials- we had to have the check corrected to reflect a $50 savings. All was well aside from that issue.
The view is fantastic, and they have their own parking lot, but the floors were sticky and the food isn’t as good as it used to be. The chips, salsa and chili rellenos were good. The beef in the fajitas and tacos was so chewy you couldn’t eat it. They replaced it, but it was still too tough. They comped us a slice of cheesecake that was very good. The wait staff was good
Really enjoyed the food but I think the price is a little to high, food variety is not what it use to be 2yrs ago less choices .
This is one of our go to restaurants while visiting Monterey. You can't beat the view and the food!
It was a great time, the food and drinks were so good. The waitress seemed a little overwhelmed and it seemed a tad bit understaffed. But overall a great time!
Great food and really good value. View was awesome.
First time ever there. Was great . Will return again.
Always a winner
Great choices for all
Our server had a great attitude and was very helpful. Food arrived in expected time. Everything was ordered was delicious.
I could see that the restaurant was understaffed. Service was slow. I know we are recovering from the pandemic, but they need to do something.
The host initially tried to seat our party of 11 in a curved booth with a small table for 4 attached. There was NO way it could work.
Eventually, they sat us in the exact same table arrangement right next to the original location PLUS the original table(s). If it wasn’t for that mishap, we would have given 5 stars.
We appreciated the quick service and delicious food. We definitely want to go back
Excellent food, service was a little slow which is normal right now due to employee shortages. A welcome break from Italian or burgers.
Good food. Reservations are a must! Great service. Great view!
Host went out of his way to seat us even though we were over an hour early
Yes we had 14 total at 2 different tables . Everything was wonderful and view was amazing
I had a Mazatlán shrimp enchilada, the sauce had great flavor, however, the tortilla almost felt raw and the shrimp was not over cooked but OLD it was hard and dry. The stake in the hot plate fajita that lights up on fire was raw not rare. Part of the stake was raw pink. Drinks, rice and beans were really good.
I'm glad the Sunday brunch is back! As usual food is great. One negative would be the noise level - the reason some servers and customer cannot hear/understand each other.
Server was exemplary constantly available to refill drinks. A tad expensive for brunch but still an enjoyable time.
Our reservation was for 430 pm. We were not seated till 445 pm. I used the restroom prior. The stall did not have toilet paper and not very clean. We ordered chicken fajitas. The chicken was dry. I ordered a Cadillac margarita. It was good. My husband ordered the Modelo Michelada. He said it had an odd taste. It was not like the ones he usually drinks. Our server was excellent.
We ate breakfast it was delicious. I had the carne asada steak and eggs and my friend had the chilquelas I recommend both dishes. The endless mimosas and bloody Mary’s was such a good deal also very tasty drinks.
A little loud, but food was great and service was great.
If you can sit by the windows, to look out over the ocean, I would highly recommend it
Drinks were very good. Food was not bad. Service was terrible. I recommend this place for a party looking for drinks more than food. I would not recommend this place for a family; the trouble is not worth the food.
I was brought the wrong drink (at least it was a bourbon drink), my husband’s drink had a wrong ingredient (according to the drink menu), our food arrived before any utensils and sat rapidly cooling as we struggled to flag down someone for forks, my husband’s dish had pico de gallo even though he ordered it without and we had to ask three times for the sour cream we had ordered with our meals. Our waitress was very nice, just ridiculously overwhelmed, as they all were! Unfortunate customer service!
Our server Jorger was excellent and also the manager Rigo where excellent they went above and beyond I will definitely recommend and go back.
Waited 30 min after reservation. Another 30 for food. Short staffed, stressed out crew.
They didn't seem to be ready for us, so big delay getting service. But later service and food was good, no complaints. Restroom needed to be cleaned, floor extremely sticky.
Extremely overpriced, food was tasteless and bland. Hostess was irritated and it showed. Saving my $150 dollars and will go somewhere else. Not to mention no parking!
Brunch was excellent. Would highly recommend. Reasonable price.
So many people and so noisy
The restaurant was super noisy and our table and chairs was dirty, food and service was good but thy need to clean the place.
The food was great. But the service was not, is not ok for the waitress to assume what you want, if you are not sure ask that’s good customer service.
Good margaritas. Great view. Great spot for happy hour.
