Very nice ambience and great staff and service ?.Good was great. However they could get more patio heaters, we were literally shivering even with jackets.

This place was so good, that we came two nights in a row for dinner. The gluten free chowder was good and so happy we found this place. My husband never gets to eat chowder. I had the coconut shrimp, bomb! They said they could make it gluten free as well but my husband didn't want to chance it. We had the fish tacos the second night and...SOOO good! I couldn't believe the flavor and the fact it was still gluten free was amazing! Cheers to the chef. We will definitely be back again.

We love this place. Whenever we're in Pacific Grove this has become one of our go-to spots for lunch or dinner. The variety of things on the menu alone is enough to tempt. The food is all good, though. That's what keeps us coming back.

I ordered the lemon caper tilapia for dinner and it was delicious! I have several food sensitivities and spoke directly to the chef about ingredients he would be using for the dish. Be substituted the soybean oil for olive oil to avoid my soy sensitivity, which I was so grateful for!

Love the food here. Definitely try the clam chowder, lobster ravioli, and the seafood paella. The paella is not on the regular menu but ask whether it is available. We ate there almost every night. Dont forget the garlic cheesy bread--so addicting. Faris,owner, and the staff are excellent and welcoming. We always eat here when we are in town.

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. I ordered the gorgonzola burger w/ side salad and my girlfriend orders the chicken schwarma wrap with fries. Foood was very tasty. I very much enjoyed my burger which also had caramelized onions. Service was also very good. Lots of options on their menu too.

Here for the weekend and I love Greek food. Placed a to go order for a Mediterranean Appetizer Combo. $19.95 and a chicken Greek salad. $16.95 Menu says Hummus, Dolmas, Falafel, Baba Ganouch, and pita. Working in the hospitality business for 18 years I always check my food before leaving but being exhausted from the drive in I tipped $5, took my bag and left. I get the beach where we are going to eat and no plasticware. Appetizer plate no biggie, but salad with our fingers?? I open the appetizer box and no baba ganouch in site. In its place a splatter of tzatziki sauce. Hummus was 3 small spoonfuls. You could actually see the bottom of the box. Very disappointing for $20.

This place has awful customer service. I understand with COVID places are trying to make due but the way my partner and I were treated was so unprofessional . We are visitors of Pacific Grove and both are essential workers taking a break from our hectic schedules. As we approached the counter to ask for an outside table it was 15 mins before we were acknowledged. We were then helped and told a table would be ready in a few mins. Another 15 mins passed before the server waived us to let us know we had two tables to choose from. Once we picked our table it was no more then 2 mins before we were told we had to move because a party of 9 was coming and we could not be there. I believe this may have been the owner as we looked to the other table we were offered another couple had been seated which would have left us waiting once again. We decided to just leave and go somewhere else , as we were made to feel we were less important to be serviced . Very disappointing .

Dined outside and the food was delicious!! We will go back again. They were building the outdoor patio for more accomodations. Great staff and delicious food. ❤️

Did not receive item - staff was quick to direct me to Uber. That's a really indifferent response. I'm going to try to reach the owner.

Always a 5 star!! William is awesome & the staff follows suit! The food is always the best!! Their chowder & flat bread are especially to die for....perfect to take to the beach & enjoy the sunset!!

A little bit of everything in quiet downtown PG setting. I recommend the jambalaya.

Ambiance was nice and food was ok.....I guess I didn't like my fish as I thot. I was so hungry so I ate every last bite but it wasn't spectacular. Also the wait staff could be friendlier.
