Great to find a small restaurant that prides itself in serving wonderful fish dishes. It was packed every night and really needs booking, I wonder if it's possible to get a table easily in the summer. Locals, visitors everyone seemed to be having a great time. If ever I am fortunate enough to return this is where I will be... More

Great place, Great food! has a small restaurant/family vibe. Really enjoyed dinner. I had the special, wild salmon, and we had calamari and creme brûlée. He had a kids item off the menu but truly filled up on bread and appetizer...oh, andy dessert. This is a busy place and families had to wait for tables. Do make a reservation as... More

This unassuming little restaurant turns out top quality Italian and seafood dishes. Don't be put off by the quirky location between a laundromat and Asian Market. The family owned Frutti de Mar offers up some of the best food in the area. Seafood is fresh and perfectly prepared. The sand dabs are sublime. Their Italian classics are just the thing... More

I honestly wouldn't have even thought about going into this cozy little restaurant if I hadn't read about it first - the outside looks rather plain and maybe even a little trashy with the Christmas decorations in March (at least to me as an European colorful lights on a chain are usually Christmas stuff), but it is a wonderful restaurant....

This is my third visit to Frutti De Mar Grill. This is a local place, so if you are visiting the Monterey Peninsula, go out of the normal and go to this place. This is a family owned restaurant, with about 50 seats, and only open for dinner at 5:00, so reservations would be recommended. My party of 6 this... More

Dont be fooled or put off by the location in a strip mall. It is a small place on the inside and it is often full. Atmosphere is okay - nautical theme. The food here is excellent and prices are not bad as I have eaten here a number of times. They have many Italian dishes as well as seafood... More

This place is tiny, so get a reservation. We were lucky enough to get a table quickly. The menu is more sophisticated than you might expect for a little strip mall eatery. We had a wonderful meal served by some of the nicest and most professional staff I have had the pleasure of meeting in quite some time. It is... More

We are Marina locals and can assure you that this restaurant is indeed where you will experience the finest dining Marina, CA has to offer. And it is fine indeed. Even the children's menu is delicious! We come here for date nights, but we also bring our kids sometimes too, if they are lucky. Share a bottle of local wine,... More

Looks like an unlikely place for a delicious meal from the outside, but don't be fooled. I had the salmon special which was delicious. They understood the gluten free concept which can sometimes be an issue at an Italian place. Great value and friendly staff.
