The Happy Hour is always a "must do" for us when we visit. Although the waterfront patio was down for renovation, our view from inside was wonderful. Marlayna was SO helpful and nice in getting our wine and food to us during a very busy time. The happy hour food offerings are even enough for a light, early dinner.

There are greats views over the sea and great tasting food here. Try some of their oysters or clams for a started and a fillet of fish for your main, trust me... More

We were staying at the Monterey Plaza and enjoyed a couple of dinners at Schooners. My main reason for writing this review is not the food - which is surprisingly delicious, creative, fresh and well prepared. I say 'surprisingly' because the restaurant desperately needs an update. The decor, branding and overall presentation of the restaurant, including the staff's uniforms would... More

The patio was closed for renovations so we dined at the bar indoors. Had to wait about 15 minutes for a table for 2 on a Friday evening. The server was very friendly, water was promptly refilled when needed. Food was good but short of being memorable. Overall a good experience.

Great view all the tables look out on the bay. Only thing I didn't like the kitchen was part of the dining room so it was loud . The food was great a variety of sea food along with steaks. Breakfast was very good to.

We picked this as the first stop on coastal drive down to LA, It's hidden within a very posh hotel which had a swanky wedding going on. But we were still made welcome -though beware that after 2 the main dining room is closed so its not easy getting a good spot. The view is top notch and so is... More

I was part of a group of 12 women who were in the area to hike and enjoy outdoor activity. We were staying at the hotel and decided to spend our last night together enjoying a dinner at the hotel dining room. We freshened up in our rooms but dressed casually for our dinner gathering. We did not feel we... More

We were staying at Monterey Place and decided to have breakfast at Schooners which in the hotel. We were seated at a window with a view of the bay. Don't have that in South Carolina. My spouse and I had eggs, hash browns, ham and toast. All good. Our server was attentive and friendly. If we return to Monterey I... More
