We had a lovely lunch at Fishwife. The food was fresh and nicely prepared and presented. We were charmed by our waiter Joaquin, who made some great recommendations for both a wine and dessert to accompany our meal. A fun and relaxed dining experience.

Great food, friendly service, affordable.

This is always our first stop for a meal when we stay in the Monterey area. Love the chowder and blackened halibut.

The waiters are ALWAYS very friendly and helpful.

We always go to the Fishwife when we are in the Monterey area. The meals are always great, including the Pasta Primavera and the fish. Be sure to make a reservation.

Fishwife had been recommended to us. We checked out reviews and decided to give it a try. We found it to be completely overrated. The food is ordinary and definitely not fine dining as advertised.

Tried to inquire about how busy the restaurant was and potentially make a reservation, but the host set the phone down and then I had the pleasure of listening to him do everything but get back to me until I gave up after 12 minutes. It was obvious that it wasn't that busy, but apparently they didn't want our business. Frustrating and definitely not "competent service."
