The house specialties like their bacon wrapped scallops and bouillabaisse are fresh and plentiful to fill the heartiest appetites. Exquisite desserts, seen here, are full flavored and... More

There are a number of excellent seafood restaurants on the wharf - and Domenico's is one of my favorites.

If you have not had spotted Prawns, and they are available, they are a combination of lobster and the best prawns you have ever eaten. When not in season, you will NOT get better service, seafood, or atmosphere. A landmark Italian seafood highlight for all of Monterey. The staff is one of the most professional and attentive you will experience.... More

The food is like you would expect with all the pier tourists. Great swordfish. Too sweet white wine. Excellent bread!

Go with the king crab. Any special with the king crab. Linguini was perfectly cooked. Sauce incredible. Family owned and run. Nice cocktail list (pineapple infused vodka) and homemade dessert tray (chocolate cheesecake). On the loud side. Friendly and efficient service.

Stopped in here for an adult beverage while visiting with some friends. A great restaurant with an excellent view, great atmosphere, and a great margarita. The bartender was professional and attentive as well. I'll be back to try them for dinner!
