My husband and I were here on Saturday night. In all honesty, we had headed elsewhere only to find out there was a 1 1/2 to 2 hr wait. We contemplated where to go and I had remembered seeing a magazine article on Monterey Bay Bistro (we've been years ago under the other name) so decided to switch things up a bit and head back east. Let's just say we toasted to the fact that the other establishment was full, bringing us here :)

Our host and waiter were most friendly and helpful, from wine selections to well everything really... We started out with PEI steamed mussels in the coconut curry sauce and even though my husband was leery about the curry, he loved it and would totally order again! He had surf n' turf and I had the pickerel - so amazingly good and his steak was done to perfection as well, which is a huge thing for him! We had no room left for dessert but we will for sure be back and bring friends! So many other great things to try and we really liked the monthly "around the world" menu idea too. For January it is Brazilian BBQ.

If you've been before and have mixed reviews, come back and give this place a chance! You won't be disappointed! Thanks for a great date night!

Headed here on a Wednesday night looking for a nicer atmosphere and better food than normal and fell in love with the place. Our waitress was amazing, I don't think I've ever had such good service! We had the crab cakes as an appetizer and both of us were quite impressed. They have a different cuisine every month and November is Greek food, so we both had the chicken wrapped in phyllo and it was absolutely amazing. The flavours were well balanced, delicate and delicious. We also had a couple desserts, the baklava and a chocolate cheese cake, and loved both of those as well. The atmosphere was a perfect get away from the typical loud restaurant, with dimmed lights and light background music. We’ll definitely be back!

This restaurant has new owners, a new name, and is awesome! Had dinner there last month and we were so happy with the food, service, atmosphere, it was all great! We will definitely be going back! Every month has new features on the menu and it's all fresh. Definitely worth checking out especially if you tried it before when it was the Mediterranean bistro, you will be amazed at the difference. It's a shame there are so many old reviews from the previous restaurant bringing down its current rating because the changes made are huge!!

Now rebranded as Monterey Bistro with a complete makeover from decor to menu. Original owner back and menu has improved somewhat. Some interesting menu items, some quirky combinations. Overall good service except there was only a single server on duty and she was being run a little ragged while the owner schmoozed with patrons.

In February 2013, this restaurant became the Monterrey Bay Bistro under new ownership. It is terrific - a huge improvement from the dismal place it had become. New furniture, good service and wonderful food make it a place worth trying. A welcome addition to Regina's fine dining scene.
