The Whaling Station Steakhouse
The Whaling Station is my Go-To restaurant for special visitors or occasions. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is always top notch and willingly accommodate special requests. I can find no better prime rib than here. There are others that are more expensive but none can match the quality. My two favorite desserts are the Pineapple Carpaccio and the Pavlova; try them!
Delicious! Freddy and the crew are always on their game.
Always the best and the first choice when my kids visit.
It was so nice to go somewhere with great food and service. Eating in the outdoor pavilion was delightful
The food and service was great. Due to COVID regulations we ate outside in a tent. It was pretty chilly in the tent. Hard to enjoy a cocktail when you are freezing.
We loved everything! We will definitely be back.
Do NOT order the risotto! They make it with long grain rice, not arborio rice. It might even be minute rice. Service was excellent, but food was disappointing.
One of the best meals we’ve had at a restaurant. We are out of towners looking for a good place to eat. This did not disappoint. The house salad with home made vinegrette was very good. The prime rib was perfect and the pavlova dessert was incredible. Our waiter, Paul, was very attentive and made great suggestions. We will definitely come back when in town again.
Stake was good
Seafood was not
Very nice dining experience. The setup under Covid conditions was comfortable and elegant even under a tent. Food was great from appetizers to dessert. Had a porterhouse steak for two and both sides of the cut were delicious. My only complaint was the corkage fee of $35. A little high for my taste and that's why I only awarded 4 stars on value. Should be no higher than $25 particularly since we weren't even given or offered the wine list. Aside from that, we will return the next time we are in Monterey.
Huge compliments to the staff and kitchen for doing such a great job in very challenging COVID time. Great martinis!!The food was outstanding and the outdoor dining was comfortable despite the cold night. Thank you all - stay healthy!
The Whaling Station staff never fails to impress me. Their service and attention to detail are unsurpassed. The food is consistently excellent. I have never been disappointed and plan to return again and again.
Great meal and service! Ambiance... well it’s a tent, so not great, but not the restaurant’s fault. Not an inexpensive occasion, but well worth it! Appetizers were outstanding, as was the surf & turf!
All of the staff was wonderful, and we were even given tent-side parking for the McLaren 😎!
Well they do the best they can do with what they have service was spot on excellent!! I got a rib eye witch wasnt that tender i was expecting more but i will go back and try them again when dinning is open and give them a second chance at my steak
Great food and service! Doing a great job for the current dinning situation. Can’t wait to go back under normal dining times.
It was outside seating, heat lamps, lights, outside bar. I will definitely be back. We ordered surf and turf $110.00, petite filet $ 58.00, wine and some appetizers. It was a bit pricey but we were celebrating our anniversary so it was worth it.
This visit was our second dining experience at The Whaling Station in the last month. Both were special events, Anniversary and Birthday, while visiting Monterey. The food is outstanding and the service is exceptional. With COVID, seating is now outside under a big tent. The Whaling Station has done a very good job of making the seating area warm and welcoming. It’s a nice experience being outside in the fresh sea air. We thoroughly enjoy this restaurant.
Due to covid they have a tent setup outside to eat. It was a little bit windy tonight but the crew was able to draw the tent closed a little bit to cut back on the wind. Thanks!
This is my favorite steakhouse in the world!
We come here any time we have a date in Monterey. Service is awesome! Safety was care was over and beyond. Food was beyond great!
I felt very safe and secure even in this time of Covid. The Restaurant and staff did a great job!
We’ll be back!!!!!!
The BEST surf n turf around! Very nice and observant staff! Simply amazing!
Great Service, food and value - especially the bar menu.
Food and service was amazing. Definitely $$$ but yummy
Here's a great restaurant making the best of the COVID restrictions. Wonderful service and a nice date night.
I do not recommend this tent of a restaurant...maybe indoors it might be good but in the tent it was horrible...hubby and I were both craving lobster because of the pandemic so we picked what we thought would be a good place that cooked excellent lobster. They were both overcooked.....the loaded baked potato wasn't loaded it all but dry and tasteless.....we sent them back....no one ever offered to remake them they asked if we wanted an appetizer..I ordered Carpaccio, which had so much lemon on it it made my mouth pucker....hubby had some sand dab thing that he ate most of...so we paid the bill and left and will never go back. The service was excellent though, the food was just bad....God only knows how much that would have cost us as we only paid for the drinks and wine and the one appetizer. Oh and the tent was so loud, the pavement (parking lot) was uneven and you felt like you were on a slant....it was freezing cold too with these heaters that did not emit any warmth because they were by the openings and it was windy....just a bad experience all the way around.
Service was amazing and food was delicious! Fine dining has been hard to find during Covid, but our experience at the Whaling Station was great!
Always a favorite stop while in Monterey, great food, service and amazing staff
Although Monterey was still only allowing outdoor dining, Whaling Station pulled it off, utilizing a large special events tent with patio heaters. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was on point; my wife had surf and turf that was cooked to perfection and had the cioppino that was loaded with all the seafood delights you would expect from any real cioppino. Unfortunately we didn’t leave room for dessert, I’m sure it would have been great! Highly recommend!! We will definitely go back the next time we’re in Monterey.....
Great place usually all 5 stars but the corona virus has of course brought some change. Still excellent food and experience.
Wonderful dinner for my boyfriend's birthday. We shared the porterhouse and it was perfect!
Lovely outside tent seating with a carpeting under-foot. Not many tables made a nice conversational atmosphere. We could not have chosen a better night. The evening was calm and warm. Food was amazing as always and service was superb!
They had a great tent set up for social distancing. The food was great and the service was even better!
great food and service . Nice outdoor dining set up
Let’s be honest... dining out in a tent is not the best ambiance by any stretch, but the food and service here more than makes up for it. The server sang an amazing a capella happy birthday for my friend. No one else has done outdoor tent dining so well! BRAVO!!!
When we checked in they recognized our anniversary and apologized for our wait as table was not readily available. Our server was amazing, as was her support staff. Will come back again, hopefully when indoor space is open.
Wonderful - such a nice job with open air outdoor dining. We enjoyed our meal and experience just as much as always a winner every time. The steaks were amazing!
Outstanding service. Excellent staff. Manager “Freddy” has his restaurant dialed in. Due to COVID-19, seating is all outside under a large canopy. The open air is wonderful and the ambiance is still charming. Our food was cooked to perfection. We will be back next time we visit Monterey.
Even with the Covid19 and having to eat in large tents, service was outstanding as was the food. I would highly recommend the Whaling Station Steakhouse for dinner.
Absolutely fabulous!! Food and service amazing!
Love the atmosphere, the food and service are always on point, and I never leave without having the pavlova.
