Reviews for Vivolo's Chowder House

This place is proof you don't need to hit the wharf for great clam chowder! I never bothered to go this place until a client raved about it and I didn't want to deal with the crowd at the wharf. Glad I did! I got the bread bowl of clam chowder, calamari, and Caesar salad. The bread, calamari, salad, chowder tasted fresh. This is now one of my favorite clam chowder spots aside from the grotto. I wanted to try their crab salad sandwich so bad but I had enough food. I tend to full review

Has great heated outdoor seating during COVID-19 and we were immediately seated. We got the fish and chips which were delicious and very fresh. We also got the bread bowl clam chowder which is a must! Our server Edmondo was very attentive and fantastic! He made the overall experience amazing.

The dining area was charming. Fresh flowers were on every table. The best dinner my boyfriend and I have had during our time in Monterey. The pasta and cioppino had the best flavor. The pasta came as a side for the cioppino along with a bit of broccoli and sweet potatoes. The fisherman's platter is a portion big enough for two!! It came with scallops, baby octopus, calamari, two pieces of fish, and prawns.
