We love to try new restaurants whenever we go to Carmel, .ca. This restaurant is a winner! The menu is intriguing and one is tempted to try something different. The restaurant is right on the bay and the scenery is breathtaking.

We stayed at the Intercontinental recently and enjoyed happy hour and a late night dessert at the bar. There are several bar tables near the windows, which you need to be early in happy hour to snag! Another option is a glassed in patio with warmers. Their happy hour wine is priced nicely and is a good wine. The dessert... More

We almost always drop by the C Restaurant when we are in Monterey. We have had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here, and have never had a less than stellar experience. This review is for drinks and bar food after a trip to the aquarium. We needed a drink after dodging all the screaming kidlets, so we dropped by one of... More

I am a foodie and difficult to please, so there, I have said it. I live in Monterey and decided to give this 'high end', 'restaurant with a view' a try. Pass. The room has the ambiance of an upper level Denny's. My smoked duck was pretty good, but the portion followed the 'if it is a small portion, maybe... More

We had lunch here after our visit to the Aquarium. It's in a great location on Cannery Row. My wife had a salad and I had a Turkey burger. Both our meals were very good and our server was friendly and took good care of us. It looked like everyone else was enjoying themselves too. The interior is rustic with... More

We met some friends here for lunch and enjoyed visiting while a guitarist played background music. The table was overlooking the bay so the view during our meal was great! Our appetizer of crunchy calamari along with fish tacos and cioppino hit the spot. The valet is convenient there on busy Cannery Row and we all left quite satisfied with... More

We stopped here for a drink during happy hour. Nice selection of happy hour cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres. Great service. Would definitely stop here again. We did not eat in the restaurant, but it had a nice menu and great views of the bay.

Two adults, two kids enjoyed good service and excellent meal. I had the swordfish and my significant other had the scallops, both of which were amazing well presented, fresh and delicious. The kids respectively had grilled cheese, and hamburger sliders, both with amazing fries. Great views of Monterey Bay rounded the whole experience.

We invited some local horse friends to join us for dinner at C which is part of the Intercontinental Clement Hotel. We had a lovely meal with excellent service and a pleasant wine list. All in all a super experience!!

We went here as staying in the Clemont hotel. Had a lovely meal and all the staff were very friendly. We were given a special birthday pudding which was much appreciated. Also the next day we went to the bar for happy hour and bar staff were great again
