wonderful lunch today at Cafe Fina. Thanks to our waitress Roxanne for waiting on us.
03:26 20 Sep 19
Delicious food. Generous portions. Friendly staff. We were served a complimentary appetizer of calamari for mentioning our whale watch trip. After drinks and this tasty treat, I opted to have a cup of clam chowder and a Cesar salad. Both were to my liking. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Pasta Fina. Definitely a pleasing choice.
03:50 08 Sep 19
pietanze italiane, tanto da farmi sentire a casa in Italia. Domenico cordiale e cortese, come un vero padrone di casa. Pesce ottimo.

The staff was excellent, as I tried to wrangle 4yo and 6yo after a long day. The food was outstanding. Highly recommend the pizza; we sat outside and watched the prep. The seafood is properly cooked, a challenge few of the nearby shops meet. I will be returning.

Great food but the service wasnt very good. Forgot our bread and some of our drinks.It took awhile to get a refill..... And there was a hair in our alcoholic beverage. Things happen and they fixed it with no worries. However if the service was better i wouldve rated it 5 stars.

22:34 30 Dec 17
Excellent choice while at the wharf. They are the only restaurant serving sustainable seafood and the food and service are great. If you can get table 25 you will have an amazing view. Try the Cioppino. You won't regret it! I had the carbonara and it was delicious.

My all time favorite Sea Food restaurant in Monterey! The appetizers, drinks and entrees are incredible!!!
15:24 30 Oct 17
The staff, food and kind owner are amazing at this place. I took my small dogs there and I was surprised they had a dog menu too. They also had a bowl of water for my dogs. They make their pasta from scratch and it’s delicious. Don’t forget to take your pooch next time.

We had an outstanding experience last week for lunch. The food was delicious (so much better than the other two restaurants we ate at on the Wharf) and the service was wonderful. We had paella, delicious!
20:31 11 Sep 17
Stopped here after whale watching!! Recommended by the Capt. And thought we would check it out! Linguini and clams perfect and fettuccini Alfredo very good. Complimentary appetizer was good too. Our waiter and the hostess were nice and friendly!! Enjoyed sitting outside and we will be back...as we are locals! Thanks for a good lunch!!

Great food and wonderful service. Had fresh sea bass and it was amazing. Would definitely go again
01:22 01 Aug 17
Delicious food and a wonderful staff! I regret that I don't recall our waitress' name, as she was fabulous! I can say, it was her first day on the job and that was yesterday evening about 5, on July 30th, if that helps her to be recognized and applauded by her manager. She was very helpful, engaging, and accommodating, even going so far as to run after us because we left behind our camera tri-pod. If your a Raiders fan, legend John Madden is good friends with Cafe Fina's owner, and there is some Madden memorabilia sprinkled throughout. Enjoy!
02:59 29 Jul 17
Great food, ambiance was wonderful and the waitstaff very attentive. Started talking football with one of the staff members and had to give him grief when he mentioned he was an eagles fan
03:18 25 Jul 17
No white table cloths and no I didn't get to sit by the bay side window. On the good note the service is amazing and the Paella is exceptional. I've never had Paella so fast after ordering. It was all I was looking for and then some. Can't wait to be back ciao
02:53 11 Jun 17
Food was outstanding! Special was almond crusted sea bass which was cooked perfectly. Clam chowder was delicious. Be sure to save room for dessert!
02:52 07 Jun 17
Great experience and value. 5 adults.. 5 different entree's.. everybody happy! We'll be back. Great service and personalities! 4 stars because I rarely give 5!

My wife and I tried Cafe Fina for the first time. We where celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary. The food was amazing and the staff was great. Thank you for making our lunch very memorable.
03:03 15 May 17
This is always a must place to go when we visit Monterey. Their clam chowder bread bowls with garlic butter brushed inside then lined with cheese and toasted in the pizza oven before the chowder is added is the BEST! I tell everyone about this place!

Excellent food and service!! Roxanne and Javier were wonderful and very personable!! They didn't use any gimmicks to get you in the door like the other places on the wharf did...we would definitely go back!!
01:51 20 Feb 17
Delicious food. I'm afraid to try something different but I'm glad I did. The food here is great. Servers were awesome too. Will be coming back again!

Always a treat to have dinner at Cafe Fina. Service is exceptional, spot on, and the food is delicious. Great Pizza's from the brick oven and nice selection of pastas and seafood. A full bar and great wine selection to top it off. You have to try the cannoli's
03:36 28 Dec 16
Seafood done right! Absolutely loved the atmosphere and the food was outstanding.
14:58 23 Nov 16
Favorite place on fishermans wharf. Only the food is better than the service. The owner Dominic remembers and greats us and usually stops by our table. Roxanne is happy to see us and really knows the food and wine gives great advise and table service. I live in Reno but if I am any where close by Cafe Fina is a must stop by.

The best food I have ever tasted ! Thank you to the owner for giving us appetizers on the house �
23:27 19 Sep 16
Great lunch... Seafood pasta to die for... There was a debate with the owner that their muscles were better than Scottish West Coast ones... I have to admit they are as good, plump and when cooked well, who could tell the difference.... Staff (one from Alaska in particular) were also a laugh, but remained focused on their job... Would definitely go back...
01:31 23 Aug 16
This is a great place on the wharf in Monterey.I would recommend it to all

Traveling from the Philadelphia area last September, Cafe' Fina was recommended to us by our Hotel front desk person ( Who is now our friend Aaron) We loved the atmosphere, the views, but especially your food. (I am trying to recreate your Prawn Scampi.)We loved it so much, we ate there twice in the 4 days we spent in Monterey. One of THE BEST PLACES ON EARTH!
20:55 30 Aug 15
Excellent food and service. Chowder rivals the best in Monterey.

If you are traveling with a pet this is absolutely the best place to eat with your pup in Monterey!

Fresh seafood, wonderful little joint on the wharf! Very good service and great everything! Highly recommended.
20:19 12 Jul 15
Just had lunch here. Great service, great food! Best of all stroller, baby, and kid friendly (unlike their neighbor with a no high chair, no stroller, no booster seat, or "crying kids" allowed policy) as a new mom with a 10 week old, carting a front pack, diaper bag, pushing a stroller, and nursing, it was wonderful to be able to sit down and enjoy a meal without stressing about my little one "disturbing others." Left a great tip. Love to support businesses that support families!
15:31 19 Oct 14
This has been one of our favorite go-to restaurants in the Monterey area for the past 25+ years. Last night they again lived up to their reputation and delivered a great meal with fantastic service. If you go to Cafe Fina be sure to finish your meal with a glass of Dom's Negroni. Oh...The lobster mac and cheese is to die for.

02:07 10 Jul 13
Cafe Fina is, by far, the best restaurant that we have experienced in the Monterey area. We have been to Monterey numerous times, and we usually stay about four days at a time. We have dinner at Cafe Fina multiple times. Any time that we try any other restaurant, we regret it. Last month I had the same entree two nights in a row, heavenly pasta with prawns. The entire family enjoys whatever they choose. We especially love their calamari fritti appetizer, which is far superior to anyone else's.The service at Cafe Fina is always superior. Our waiter this summer (I think his name was Jorge) was excellent, . . . friendly, intelligent, and helpful.I would like to add that I am 100% Italian so I know what good Italian food is! If I could give Cafe Fina 6 stars, I would. 🙂
