Wonderful place. Food superb; service equal to the food. We make sure we dine there every trip to Monterey/Carmel (2-3x/yr.) It will be a highlight of your visit to that area. Enjoy! PS don't miss their desserts, either!

The food was very good. The service was terrible. There were two of us, we had to ask several times for water, after dinner the dishes were not cleared for a very long time, and we waited forever for the bill, then again for the server to take our payment.

Visiting from out of town. Celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. Restaurant was recommended to us by locals. Food was fantastic, as well as the service! The atmosphere was amazing! Very warm surroundings. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Charming neighborhood place with a diverse European menu. Larger groups tend to make it a bit on the noisy side, but everyone was having fun and all seemed to enjoy the cuisine. Outer dining room is more parties of 2 and 4, and seemed quieter. Nice ambiance and an incredibly friendly and helpful staff.

This is one of our favorite restaurants ever. It is always special... food, service, ambience. I feel like we've been transported to Europe when we go there! It is special in every way and I recommend it highly, especially for an occasion. The only problem is, it's pricey. But we know that going in, and are prepared. The entrees aren't so expensive, but by the time you add a salad, a drink (or a bottle of wine), appetizer, -or whatever, it adds up. Still, it is one of those places that I have fond memories of over many years of going there, and that's worth a bunch. We make a point of going there nearly every time we visit Pacific Grove. Overall, fantastic!

Cannot wait to return, as there were far too many items on the menu that were enticing. I wished I could order them all. The wine list was quite impressive, and the service... top notch. Overall, a wonderful discovery!

Our first time to this restaurant. I had osso bucco, which was fabulous; it is rare to find a restaurant that will offer his dish, and even more rare to detect the signs that the traditional slow cooking preparation has been followed. Wife had delicious fiket mignonette with scampi, and loved it. Great wine list. We will return!!!

My partner had the rack of lamb and enjoyed it. I had the paella and was a bit disappointed. Their preparation seemed to lack saffron and was somewhat bland. Service was very good. We were in a small room with four tables that were very close together. Thus, some conversations around us were very intrusive.

This was the second time my wife and I have dined at Fandango and we have never been disappointed. The service and ambiance have been first rate and the food has been wonderful. All in all a memorable fine dining experience.

Beautiful setting and structure inside and out. Mediocre service, our waiter didn't tell us of the specials, we had to ask for butter, we were in a lovely corner but out of the traffic enough to be overlooked by the waiter and host. Food inconsistent, great sweetbreads but bad cassoulet........almost all beans. Overall an acceptable experience but poor attention by staff.

Whenever I visit Pacific Grove, it is a must for me to eat at Fandango. I love the small rooms, the warm welcome and the attentiveness of the waiters. Their menu is varied, but I always opt for the lamb chops. I can't speak to much else as I tend to get the same item each time I visit. The lamb is always cooked to perfection for me, never rare, but medium on the inside and cooked well on the outside...keeps the juice in. I enjoyed this with a wonderful glass of Pinot Noir. My dessert was profiteroles, lovely cream puffs with coffee ice cream inside and whipped cream on top with drizzles of chocolate sauce. I left a very satisfied customer. I may try one of their other wonderful menu items next time I visit (but I doubt it - I can't pass up the lamb!)

Fandango is a gem. It is consistently excellent- food, service, ambiance, cocktails. We had the sand dab appetizer- the best sand dabs we have ever had, and we've had quite a few. They were so good we ordered anther plate of them! The onion soup is excellent, and so is the surf and turf. This is a wonderful restaurant!
