Fish Hopper Ratings and Reviews
As always, the food was great and Manny was once again our waiter. He remembered us and took great care of us. The presentation was top notch and the food was the absolute best. I had the clams and linguine and my partner had the salmon. Both were great! Oh yes, did I say Manny was great! Well he was and of course we'll be back again and again.
Amazing food and drinks! The ultimate bloody Mary is outstanding! The bacon wrapped scallops was well worth the price. The pasta with clams, scallops, and shrimp was prepared perfectly! The pasta was el dente, and the sea food was plump and flavorful. The white sauce is light and creamy and compliments the dish! Great wine list too, and of course loved the view! We will certainly visit again!
We made a last minute reservation for my husband's birthday weekend. We were seated at a fabulous table with a wonderful view. We had had a glass of wine at the bar and wanted to order a bottle for dinner, but could not find it on the menu. The staff was so helpful (our waiter tracked down our bartender and brought her to our table to make sure it was the right one!) and help find the right one for us. Also they provided a very tasty birthday dessert for my husband. I would definitely go back again!!
The setting of the fish hopper is unbeatable. You can look out over the Bay and we watched a sea otter swim inside the small part of the bay while we ate dinner. It was really beautiful there.
I had the salmon with sesame seed crust. It was OK but not great.
But all in all it is a nice dining experience.
I had made reservations for a window table for my birthday and my boyfriend's birthday dinner but instead was seated in the aisle table and really close proximity to a family seated next to our table ( only separated by about 5 inches). We had been here before for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful romantic dinner. However, this time it was not was I expected from this place. I talked to the manager to please acknowledge our reservation request since there were 2 empty window tables. However, she said we would have to wait an hour and a half. So what's the point of making reservations for a special occassion if you there's no guarantee that you will get what you want? That's the whole point about dinning there for the window table for a special occasion. Therefore, we left disappointed and went to Red Lobsters instead. No window view, but better table that's for sure and not so noisy.
I was smart to book a table for 2 a month in advance for my 1st anniversary with my lady. They seated us at their best table with a fanatastic view of the water. Waiter and manager knew ahead of time of special nite with special anniverary greetings. Chef was nice enough give us a delicious desert on the house. Definitely will come back. Btw, clam chowder was the best we've ever tasted.
Service and food were excellent! In the heart of Cannery Row, it's expected to be expensive and touristy. Fish Hopper well exceeded our expectations and earned the cost of the meal. In addition to the great service and excellent food presentation, we saw a humpback whale mosey along the bay. Cool place!
We love the Fish Hopper and usually go there at least once every time we visit the Monterey Peninsula. In recent years we've been coming down for Monterey Car Week with our classic Mini, renting a home in the area and just enjoying all Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel and other cities have to offer, but we usually get to Cannery Row and the Fish Hopper for a wonderful dinner out on the pier overlooking the bay.
The food was delicious and the service attentive. I visiting over vacation and I would definitely return to this restaurant with the family or with the boyfriend. This is NOT a place for unruly children and they tell you that before you sit down--which I highly appreciate. GREAT views of Monterey Bay. I recommend it.
Food was amazing. We have eaten at the Fish Hopper a number of times over the years and never been disappointed with the food. So many delicious fish dishes. The big complaint we have is they tend to pack the tables pretty close together. So as people are getting in and out of there chairs they are banging into your chair. Very annoying. Thats why we went with 4 stars and not 5.
Donny, our waiter was very attentive. Freddie the bartender made a great Tito's and lemonade. I feel lousy for not remembering the name of the main hostess who made sure I had a great view. I really appreciated her efforts and she should be commended. (Our original time was 8pm she moved things around to 8:15 and sat us shortly after 8pm at a great table with a awesome view) Our family had a great dining experience and will be returning.
Have eaten here before and food and experience were top notch. Went there for a wedding celebration meal. Experience was, this time, only fair Lalala next door is much better. Wife and I were a bit disappointed had our first date there 3 years ago and wanted to celebrate that event as well.
