The happy hour is the best value on Cannery Row, try the calamari, fantastic! Sit by the window and enjoy the view, service is on spot and you can't beat the half price deals

We had both breakfast and dinner at C restaurant while staying at the Clement Intercontinental. We were seated at a booth both times. We felt the spacing between tables was very good with tables lining the windows facing the water. The breakfast was very good but expensive. The dinner was absolutely delicious. We can recommend duck breast with carrot risotto... More

I came here for their early plate menu at 5pm since I was here for a conference (dinner begins at 5:30pm and not a moment sooner). I sat next to several couples that I heard complain about "weak" drinks and the drinks tasking "off" - one refused to pay and then left without staying for dinner. I had a burger... More

I was lucky enough to win a free hosted happy hour for myself and 7 friends. They set us up on the patio outside. We ordered at least one of every food item on the happy hour menu and then some. Some our favorites were the Podran chili's, the cheese plate, the hummus and tapenade plate, and the burger. The... More

Really enjoyed dining here. It's convenient and the food is very good for lunch or dinner. My only issue is that it's not a super fast experience (or at least it wasn't for us).

After a wonderful morning at Monterey Bay Aquarium, a sun-drenched walk along the waterfront brought us into the hotel lobby of The Clement Monterey. It was sleek and chic. After checking the C Restaurant menu, we decided to stay for lunch. Perfect weather day on Monterey Bay so we opted for the patio. The sun came out from behind the... More

Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. Wonderful view of the bay. Superb food and a magnificent set of servers. Well worth the trip anytime.

This place isn't like a normal overpriced hotel restaurant. The chef is imaginative and they have dishes that are sourced from the Monterey Bay but with just little twists. The crab on the Eggs Benedict is particularly good. The service is slick, the wine list comprehensive and they have this interesting option of purchasing wines straight from the barrel which...

Live music outside was what brought us in. Mark Banks, a talented muscian! The view is amazing, we sat outside and they started a heater next to the table which was great. Food is of good quality and tasty. We had the swordfish, sardine pasta and crab cakes. All were good. Service is ok but not exceptional. Food was good... More
