Fish Hopper Ratings and Reviews

some view places in many high tourist areas (eg, monterey) have a nice view but often are lacking in service, ambiance, cleanliness, quality of ingredients or all of the above. We were all very pleasantly surprised and thankful. The food had flavor, was nicely presented, and had a freshness to it. So happy to discover this place is not riding the tails of their location and view, but also turning out great meals.

The restaurant was nice, the waitress was friendly, although she didn't hear me say that I wanted dessert and rang up our check before the dessert was added. The food was very "blah." My boyfriend's filet mignon had virtually no flavor at all and neither did my lobster tail. It was a lot of money for food that was mediocre. We went to another restaurant in Monterey the next night and it was less than half the price and the food was 100 times better.

So romantic for our anniversary! We sat over the ocean and listened to the waves on the beach during sunset-- like a date out of The Bachelor! We split two appetizers, an entree, and two of their 60 oz margaritas and everything was delicious. Omar was our server and he was so polite and made our experience so fun! We will for sure be back.

We had reservations for 12:30 and 3 of 5 of us were there ...my brother was finding parking for his very large pickup w my husband. The host/hostess were very amicable and assured me that there no problem. We were seated w my requested window/ocean view table. Our waiter, George, was very friendly, attentive, accurate and surprised us w 4 birthday desserts - our special occasion (Summer Sib Birthday Lunch). "Friendly" reservations, excellent food, awesome service, beautiful views of the Monterey Bay = A Perfect lunch for my sibs.

This was our first visit to Fish Hopper and we will not be going back. We met friends we haven't seen in years but it was difficult to catch up as our waiter tried to rush us throughout the meal. The calamari appetizer was good but my ahi tuna entree was the worst I have ever had because it was sinewy and flavorless. Even though the view from our table was spectacular, it is not enough to overcome the tasteless food and rushed service.

We got seated right away and there was quite a wait. Our server was awesome!! We were quite the high-maintenance group, too, and she met our high expectations big time! We asked for special dishes, etc. Our glasses were kept filled and we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I wish I could remember our servers name. It was a woman and she was great! We sat back in the back and had a great view.

You can't go wrong with The Fish Hopper! The food is always quite good and the service is impeccable. We brought our own wine so we didn't even look at the wine list. The menu is substantial and they usually have a few fresh fish specials. The prices are a bit higher than some other restaurants in Monterey however, the view and ambiance are worth it!

We enjoyed Fish Hopper very much. Usually we don't expect much from a place in a tourist area like Cannery Row, but Fish Hopper was a nice surprise. The food was good. Our server was excellent. They also have a nice touch of doing something special for military veterans which we all greatly appreciated. Thanks!

the view was great since we got a table for 2 at the window. the food was very good. the waiter was nice but rushed us a bit. very busy 4th of july weekend so probably trying to hurry but there were other tables open so no one would have to wait for us to leave. bought a coffee mug.

Celebrated anniversary at Fish Hopper. Food, including a Caesar's Salad and Swordfish, was excellent. The Swordfish was some of the best I have ever tasted. Service was excellent! Awesome view! Great restaurant, highly recommended!

I loved their garlic bread clam chowder bowl--but this latest visit left me a little disappointed. The waiter seemed to take my concerns seriously, so I hope the next time I visit, I'll be able to have my favorite garlic bread bowl clam chowder again! Love this place!

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon as recommended by an uncle. He said the food was great but it is for sure pricy at nearly $40 a plate on some lunch items. We were not disappointed at all with anything and found it easy to pay that given the excellent food and service. We never had empty glasses and the servers never interrupted to see how we were doing. Their suggestions of what to get were also helpful as we usually don't get much seafood where we live.

Our expectations were low based on the "look" of the place, but WOW! We were blown away by the excellent service we received from Andrea and the food was excellent. This is a great place for casual dining and very good seafood. Looks can be deceiving... we loved this place.

Service was good and the food was tasty. Didn't think the presentation was much and prices were a hair higher than anticipated compared to there sister location on Hawaii Island.
Not sure if there was other options for our side as our waiter did push us to have the mashed. Would have liked a vegetable but he basically ordered the sides for all of our party as the mashed.

Very good fish & seafood restaurant with nice oceanviews and an impressive wine list. Our crab cakes as a starter were great followed by two excellent tasty fresh fish dishes. The oceanview was wonderful as well as the friendly, attentive service. Not cheap but well worth the money.

I love the Fish Hopper, right over the water, magnificent views; great selection of fish and food,
great service, great drinks; bar looks like a neat place to hang out, need to try it in the future.
I do not live in the area or even close by, but when i am in the area, the Fish Hopper is my choice.
