A place to remember. – I took my wife there for our anniversary, I made reservations but didn't really need them, we were seated promplty by a very polite host, and our drinks arrived quickly, our waiter was polite.
The food was some fo the best I have ever eaten!!!! This was the first place I had ever been where you orderd a steak and they brought out several cuts for you to choose form!!! Talk about drooling!!! I was in heaven!
It was cooked to perfection and was so tender it almost cut its self ! We had a great romantic evening, It was not crowded, and the dress was casual for others coming in, I felt out of place wearing a suit...
The only draw back was the bar, too many foul mouth drunks being loud. the good thing was the manager tried his best to keep them quiet.
Perfect, but at a price – The prime beef is cooked to perfection...tender, with real back east taste, not bland like western beef. I asked the waiter for A1 sauce, but never used it...the beef tenderloin was that good. The service was there on the spot, but never intrusive. Ambiance was good...nice and quiet, but the decor was nothing special. The prices were outrageous, but worth it every so often on special occasions. Bottom line...John Pisto has done it again.
Oustasnding experience – To find a steak house of this quality in an area primarily known for seafood is amazing. The steak selection is as good as any I have experienced anywhere I have traveled in the US. The additional seafood and vegetarian dishes ensure everyone has something to choose from. The staff goes out of it's way to ensure a pleasurable dining experince. They make you feel like good friends coming over for dinner. FIVE STARS as far as I am concerned!
Great experience – Considering it was a spontaneous decision to eat at Whaling Station, it was undoubtedly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The prices are a high-ish but worth every last cent. You definitely get your money's worth in every sense. For those like me who cannot part with their inner carnivore, the red meat selections are prime and taste incredible. The seafood is just as wonderful and they have great selections for vegetarians as well. The service is impeccable and not snooty or condescending in any way. I highly recommend a stop into Whaling Station when in Monterey ..... don't forget to call ahead!
