Monterey's Best Seafood Restaurant 9/20/2011

But slow down once you arrive, because you'll want to take your time at this classic Monterey restaurant. You could go for a birthday or anniversary but also just because it's Sunday night and you're craving prime rib and don't want to cook. Fresh, fresh seafood beautifully prepared, an amazing, huge wine list and what looked like fantastic steaks--don't eat meat, but these looked and smelled so good I was tempted! It's been in Monterey for quite a while, and someone told me it's one of Clint Eastwood's favorite spots. Dont' miss it! more

Fine food, way overpriced with insincere and haughty service. 3/1/2008

My wife and I went to the Sardine Factory on a Tuesday night for a romantic dinner. It was recommended very highly at the Winery in Cannery Row by both the staff and the patrons. An extra perk was that they would have no corkage fee for any wine purchased at the winery, and we had purchased a nice bottle for the occasion. Pros: Beautiful rooms, excellent food Cons: Haughty staff. more

Lackluster Performance by An Old Standby 4/8/2007

I am a frequent visitor to Monterey and have had a pleasurable experience at the Sardine Factory before. Pros: Ambience, Location Cons: Poor Quality Food more

It's still great after all these years 7/19/2006

We had dined here about 4 years ago and after having read some of the recent reviews, were not sure if it was a good as it used to be. Well for us it was still a great place to dine in Montery. The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. Sure it's a little pricey; particularly if you get a bottle of wine. But I for one don't mind paying a little more for a dining experience. Pros: Fantastic Dining Experience Cons: None for us more

Just go for the tapas! 2/22/2006

How the Sardine Factory received a 9.5 I will never know. The restaurant is pricey and overrated. BUT, I can definitely recommend going for TAPAS! Not many people know about this, but you can spend a little less money and have a more casual, relaxed time in the lounge area munching on tapas with friends. I highly recommend the braised kobe shortribs! more

User review by wesb 5/15/2005

There are some really great aspects about the Sardine Factory, but I cannot recommend it. The decor is brilliant. Each room has its own distinct ambience, and all are fantastic. The service is excellent. The hosts and sommelier are especially pleasant. The Sardine Factory provides both a great setting and great service, but the food comes up way short. The prices for both wine and food are extremely high. This could be forgiven if the quality of the food was outstanding. Each course was completely devoid of flavor from the Seafood Indulgence to the Abalone Bisque to the steaks. No flavor whatsoever. The Sardine Factory is a potentially awesome experience if only the food was enjoyable on any level. Pros: decor, ambience, service Cons: flavorless food more

Much improved 3/5/2003

We dined here about 4 years ago and 4 years prior to that. Now we questioned the thought of returning this year because of the less than average experience we have had. Well, let me tell you what a great surprise not only did we have the best night of our lives but we can't say enough!! We felt like Queens and Kings and everyone we came in contact with was delightful and very professional, like the old days. Please keep up the good work is shows! Pros: Everything more

Great Place 2/20/2003

We went to the Sardine Factory expecting the usual fish house type restaurant but were pleasantly surprized. The food was incredible, the service impeccable. The restaurant is pricey, but gives you an all-around dinning experience. It was a nice treat!! Pros: the food, service, free on site parking more

Classic elegance 12/27/2002

We have wanted to dine here for years but have not been able. It was worth the wait and I must say we were not dissapointed in any way. The service was perfect the server talked with us as if we were the most special people in the world, his name I think was Vince. The night is one that we will soon not forget. Thank you Sardine Factory. Pros: Vince, Service, Overall Management Cons: Didn''t come sooner more

Outstanding! 12/27/2002

The dinner we had was absolutely outstanding. We now now what a first class restaurant is all about. From the start we were treated like King and Queen and the food was beyond our expectations. Pros: Service, Food, Quality more
