“Expensive and only a few menu choices”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The atmosphere is modern and upscale with a view of the ocean across an exterior boardwalk. We were able to get a window table but I was disappointed in the entree choices. We were there for breakfast and I wanted something simple after a holiday season of eating. There were no simple choices and everything was pricey.

“"Very good"”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

I really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere is really nice with views of the ocean and good service. If you enjoy wine, the pours are very good!

“Very Friendly waitress”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We had couple appetizers and a cup of tea. The waitress kept apologizing because she was overwhelmed. She Deducted the tea from our bill because of the lacking of service she provided. I was very impressed with her honesty. In turn I gave her the cost of the 2 cups of tea + 15 % tip

“Go for the happy hour”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

The happy hour is the best value on Cannery Row, try the calamari, fantastic! Sit by the window and enjoy the view, service is on spot and you can't beat the half price deals

“Recommend duck breast with carrot risotto”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We had both breakfast and dinner at C restaurant while staying at the Clement Intercontinental. We were seated at a booth both times. We felt the spacing between tables was very good with tables lining the windows facing the water. The breakfast was very good but expensive. The dinner was absolutely delicious. We can recommend duck breast with carrot risotto and confit of duck leg. The duck breast was tender and juicy. The free sourdough bread was delicious with a butter made of goat cheese and olive oil. For dessert we had the special of three scoops of ice cream: Lebanese yoghurt, double chocolate, and pistachio ice cream with blueberry honey compote. The caramelized banana was very good. Service was friendly and efficient. C Restaurant is relatively high-priced, but it provides reliable quality and a pleasant atmosphere. It's especially convenient if you are staying at the Clement. Its quality and reliability make C Restaurant well worth the cost.
