My clients enjoyed the food quite a bit. They said that the service was a bit lacking. But the they enjoyed their experience overall.
Not worth the price. Wine list ridiculously over priced. Food adequate but not inspiring or creative. Dine elsewhere.
Incredible view of the Pacific and its rocky coast. Hard to improve upon this. The ambience was cool modern and we were lucky enough to get the corner table facing both the ocean and the cove.
The food was outstanding, but even after telling the waitress that I had certain dietary restrictions, she twice brought out dishes with food I could not eat. The wine on the list was not only the wrong year, it hadn't been corrected for two years!
After adding up the positives and the negatives, the positives won by far!
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Carmel’s Highlands Inn. The views from the Pacific Edge’s Restaurant there are fantastic! We ate breakfast there on Sunday, 3/8. Our meal was delicious but a bit over-priced. We would like to have dinner there, but the dinners are extremely over-priced!
We were celebrating my husband’s birthday with a 3 day weekend at Hyatt’s Highlands Inn. Our breakfast was at the Pacific’s Edge Restaurant with a full ocean view which was beautiful! Our servers greeted us with a birthday greeting for my husband. Our servers were efficient. Our food was delicious.
We do feel that breakfast there is a bit over-priced. Breakfast in similar restaurants are lower-priced &/or include bacon, sausage, or ham with the meal.
Food, service and beautiful view!!!
Food and service was very good, but we felt it could have been better given the amazing views.
We had a fantastic experience at Pacific's Edge and would highly recommend! Our server Colin was wonderful!! He introduced himself to my husband and I at the beginning of our meal and remembered both mine and my husband's names throughout the evening. His entree recommendation for my husband (the halibut) and dessert recommendation for us to share (chocolate croissant bread pudding, to die for!!) were spot-on. The view from this restaurant can not be beat! Nothing but great things to say about it.
Wedding going on with loud music ruining ambiance of the dining room. Service was abysmal — slow and gaffes at every turn. This use to be one in the top dining rooms in Carmel/ Monterey with top notched food, service and ambience. Now it’s feels like a TGIFs in a better location. What a disappointment. I will not be returning.
We dined outdoors and that view is certainly spectacular. Unfortunately, some of the food is not. The tuna in my poke bowl was very poorly cut, with lots of sinewy pieces (about one third of it) that were inedible. My date’s fresh fish taco was delicious, but certainly not the promised sea bass. We overheard another waiter telling other guests that the fish of the day was grouper (not sea bass), so I can only assume our waiter was mistaken.
We are never disappointed at California Market. One of our favorites!
Always a great experience. Highly recommended.
Beautiful sight out the dining room window in early evening.
Wonderful service. Excellent food all around.
We were able to find parking ourselves, but they do offer valet parking too.
Food is so delicious, and the view is breathtaking. We went to this restaurant every year to celebrate. I really enjoy being there. Highly recommend to anyone.
We always take our out of town guests here for a wonderful dining experience! A great menu and breathtaking view never disappoints - would highly recommend. The service is the best!!
Service was very slow . The food was amazing as always
Wait service really inattentive. Manager finally took our order. Food was mediocre, bland in a very expensive multi course menu.
It as our first valentine’s together. We’ll never forget it.
Valentines dinner. Delicious!
I took my wife there for Valentine's Day and we loved it, we almost had the whole patio to ourselves. We will be back next year to celebrate Valentine's day.
The brussels sprout appie was amazing!...our dinners of Cioppino and rack of lamb was perfect...
Help needed at valet parking. Too long to wait at arrival and too long to wait when leaving. Same as my last visit. No excuse for not fixing this.
Wonderful birthday celebration in a fabulous setting! Beautiful view! Food was outstanding and our sever Frederick was very helpful and attentive! We haven’t been here in awhile but will definitely return soon!
Appreciated the beyond burger - vegetarian options are always good.
It’s a beautiful experience - we recommend the outside deck because it gets pretty warm inside when the sun is on you. Food could be better-dry halibut sandwich. Delicious lemon custard desert!
it is a MUST visit restaurant on highway 1.
i love this restaurant and hotel.
Service was slow. We feel like we were forgotten about. Coffee cane with no cream. Had to wait 5 minutes to see our waiter to get cream. Coffee ended up just warm.
This restaurant went from extraordinary to ordinary in terms of food. We have been to Pacific's Edge many times over the years, by ourselves and with friends, and the food was always outstanding for everyone. It was the reason we would stay in Carmel Highlands. But we were very disappointed in the downgrade of the food. The prices are higher and the quality of the food and preparation lower. I ordered "Steak Frites" expecting "french fries" (apparently they don't know "frites" in French means french fries) but was served a sliced, roasted potato. The steak was much to hard to cut and chew, and the vegetables barely cooked. My husband had the rack of lamb which he said was good (not outstanding) and his vegetables also were practically raw. When I complained to the waiter, he did get the price of my entree removed and was very apologetic. The management needs to know that their "new" restaurant falls short of the "old."
We went for brunch....the view is always wonderful....however the food was cold (waffles) and the eggs Benedict was over cooked. The eggs Benedict was replaced when we brought it to the attention of our server. One member of our party had to leave the table to go find the server. Coffee refill finally came.
The resturant was not busy....lots of help milling around....but service sub-par.
