Seafood pasta was very bland. The service was great
For her birthday, I took my wife to dinner at Schooners. It's a nice atmosphere, for the most part. We sat at a window and could see the waves crashing against the rocks below. Apart from the loud group sitting in a table next to us (2 couples) talking about NBA picks, everything was perfect. I'd definitely go again. Great food!
We made a reservation. We were greeted by a charming young lady.
The service was prompt and the waitress Marsha made our evening!
We were amazed at the great service a food quality.
Dear OpenTable Diner, Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your dinner in Schooners and Marsha will be thrilled that she made your evening special! We look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

Dear AliciaJ, Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear you and the kids enjoyed your experience in Schooners! We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
Very expensive for the portion size. Very hard to find the entrance got lost several times coming from the patio. Terrible screaming kids while adults should have only been there at that time.

If possible, can you contact me directly with any additional feedback that can be shared with our team along with what has already been provided.

Food and service are spectacular! The views are amazing from the dining room, especially if you can get a window seat. It's definitely a fancy place, but the prices are what you'd expect for high quality seafood. Well worth it!
Best experience, best food, best view!!
Dear OpenTable Diner, Thank you for your kind comments! We hope to see you again the next time you are in Monterey. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
Everything was great except the quantity of the veggie item. We ordered Ravioli. It came only with 8 pieces of Ravioli , Kale on top and few nuts. It was delicious but quantity was very less, compare to the price.
Dear Inderjit, Thank you for your feedback. We will share your comments with the Executive Chef for his review and we hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

Had a wonderful experience. Food was superb! We usually eat outside or in the bar but we were dining with a friend from out of town and seated in the dining room by accident and what a nice surprise! We are locals and will be coming back for sure!!!!
Food was delicious and our wait staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive! So much fun..our friend from Seattle, WA. was impressed!!!

We had not been to Schooners in awhile and were pleased to find it just as good as we remembered it. The attention provided by our server, James, was excellent as was the food. Quite noisy but that is not much of a factor in the total scheme of things. We'll be back.
Dear DougG, Thank you for your review and for returning to Schooners. James will be pleased to hear you appreciated his service and we look forward to your next visit. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
Had a great experience! Great location and fantastic view looking out over the bay. I read some reviews about the service being poor but my experience was great. I would highly recommend and think you would enjoy.
Dear OpenTable Diner, Thank you for your review and your high recommendation! We are happy to hear you found your experience to be great in regards to the service you received as well as the beautiful views. We hope to see you again the next time you are in the Monterey area. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
The halibut was excellent!
Chose Schooner's for our last night in Monterey primarily for the beautiful ocean view and found that this spot is a solid place for a really good meal. Service was spot on....just enough attention paid to us without being intrusive. Food was really good, the Cioppinno was outstanding....best I've ever tasted with a broth that had great flavor and let the seafood shine. Overall a perfect end to our stay in Monterey.
Dear Hink66, Thank you for sharing such a nice review. Our culinary team will be flattered to hear their cioppino is the best you’ve tasted and our servers will be happy to hear you appreciated their service. We hope to welcome you back the next time you are in the Monterey area. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
My boyfriend and I came here for his birthday/date night and we absolutely loved it! Our server was excellent, I wish I had asked for a name so I could give him a shoutout. The food and cocktails were beautifully presented and equally as delicious. All that combined with front row seating to the ocean, and you couldn’t ask for a more romantic spot to be.
Dear OpenTable Diner, Thank you for sharing your review and for choosing Schooners to celebrate your birthday/date night. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the food, cocktails, views and service. We hope to welcome you back for another romantic date night soon! Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
I went here for my anniversary with my boyfriend and we were underwhelmed to say the least. We waited quite a while just for water and bread, which was eventually noticed by a waitress that was not originally serving us. She is why I’m giving more stars than I would've otherwise, she was great and gave us a free appetizer. Oysters weren’t great, we both got fish dishes that were okay. We were hoping for a special dinner and it just turned out average. I feel like there’s a lot of potential maybe we just came on a bad night.
Dear CNels, Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear you were underwhelmed with your recent visit to Schooners and will share your feedback with our servers and culinary team. Our goal is to exceed our guest’s expectations and we hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
Great atmosphere. Food was good but not spectacular. Service was mostly really good. At the end, our server seemed to disappear so it took a while to get our check.
Amazing food and a wonderful location!
Dear OpenTable Diner, Thank you for your kind review – we hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
Have eaten here for many years when we come to Carmel. Never have had such poor service or food on any prior visits. My wife ordered the lobster and it was ice cold. Our server was inattentive until the bill was asked for. Best part of the dinner was leaving.

We are very disappointed to hear of your experience during your recent visit and I invite you to reach out to me directly with any additional feedback you may have. We hope to have the opportunity to restore your confidence in Schooners. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

Porshe greeted us with a smile & was so very helpful in getting us a great table by the window. Our bar waiter, Steve, was very personable and fun and our dining waiter, Masha (I believe) was excellent. They all made my birthday celebration one to remember.
Service was just ok and same with the food. It felt very impersonal and cold. My dinner came out too hot and I burned my mouth. I had to wait about 5 minutes to eat my dinner. A restaurant of this caliber should know better. I just felt disappointed. Maybe it was an off night, but I just don’t think it is worth going back.
Nice spot in Monterey for great seafood. Excellent menu!
Food was perfect. Our server Masha gave us an amazing experience with perfect suggestions, perfect wine pairing suggestions and a warm welcome. We had a perfect night.
We went here based on our daughter’s recommendation to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We were seated at a cozy table next to a window with a beautiful view of Monterey Bay.
Many good choices on the menu. Decided on the Chardonnay steamed littleneck clams for appetizer and Fisherman’s Cioppino and Seafood Pasta Bolognese for our main course. Delicious, large servings and with the fresh sourdough bread, more than enough food. No room for dessert. Too bad because there were several items on the dessert menu that caught our eyes. The lovely waitress wished us a happy anniversary and presented us with complimentary flutes of Champagne to help us celebrate.
Every meal I've had at Schooners over the years has been great. The food and service are consistently excellent.
Dear OpenTable Diner, Thank you for sharing your review and for your continued patronage. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
I had the first available reservation time for dinner- 5:30- but in December the sun has set and the ocean view was black by 5:30, so it felt like a waste of an ocean view ?
Food was good, but angry shrimp were too spicy for me.
My wife and I dined at Schooners for one of the best restaurant meals and experiences we have ever had. I began with the octopus starter which was tender and intensely flavorful.
My wife started with the Mixed Grains Salad which combined a wide assortment of grains with some shaved local cheese, dressed with a unique vinaigrette. Her main was a perfectly prepared large portion of Alaska king salmon grilled to her specific taste.
I had the Seafood Pasta Bolognese—an ample portion of house made pasta topped with a wide selection of chunks of tuna along with bay shrimp and bay scallops and some small pieces of lobster. The seafood was well prepared especially considering that I don’t usually like bay anything because they are too often dry and over cooked. But these were moist and tender.
Most important of all was the delightful experience being served by Megan. She helped us pick our choices and was spot on in all of them. She periodically checked to see how we were doing and whether we needed anything. Kudos to her and whoever had the wisdom to hire her.
We’re returning tomorrow.
Dear OpenTableDiner, Thank you for such a wonderful and detailed review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed both your starters and entrees and that you appreciated Megan’s service. Your comments will be shared with her and the culinary team. We hope to welcome you back to once again exceed your expectations. Sincerely, Chris Sommers Managing Director Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa
We celebrated my birthday at Schooners. We had an early reservation, but the place was already half full, always a good sign. We split the surf and turf special, adding a starter and side. Everything was delicious and the service from Masha was excellent. It was surprisingly noisy for a nice restaurant, but we had a relatively quiet table for two near the window. We will be back!
