Monterey Peninsula

Domenico’s On the Wharf
50 Fisherman's Wharf
Monterey, CA

Lunch & Dinner - Seven Days a Week

One of our favorite restaurants. Best wine list in the Monterey-Carmel area. Great jazz music. Fresh food and wonderful sauces; inventive courses with great service. For lunch or dinner; may be a wait for a window seat, so call in advance. Highly recommended for casual or a formal event.

A half-block up from the Marriott Hotel (If you can't find a spot, part at the Marriott or park at the large Doubletree Lot or two blocks away at the public lot)

This is an excellent Bistro. Loud, but wonderful food, great wine list with very reasonable prices, and service was terrific. This is a real find. For couples or groups. French and Italian with many signature dishes. You will not be disappointed.

This site has all the information you need.

We have been eating here since 1968, when Ted Balestreri and Bert Cutino were the chefs. Now they have many other properties, other businesses, but still are active here. Bert is the Bailli of the Monterey Peninsula Chapter. We were fortunate to enjoy an excellent evening here recently.

John Pisto is a very popular chef and restaurant owner who started out in a small place on the wharf. He now even has a television show. He appears to be on every hour in Monterey on some station (you can see for yourself here).

The website does not give the restaurant justice. You can learn more by going to,. But even this website detracts from the fact the food is great, the wine list is reasonably priced and very good, and the service is always top notch.

His Delmonico's on the Wharf has excellent seafood and a great wine list. Paradiso's has a view of the water and is a fun place with great food.
Albonetti's in on the wharf, with fresh sea food; small, inexpensive.

I don't know why he promotes steak and beef here and the Whaling Station... It could be because he is located next door to the Sardine Factory. His fish and pasta are excellent. His homemade olives are superb. The restaurant is most worthy to be next to the more famous Sardine Factory.

While John Pisto is more an "executive chef," he is very active overseeing the restaurants.

We were fortunate to have lunch here recently with the Chaine des Rotisseurs, in which he is a member. He was the chef, and made the world's largest Tiramusu. We hope to have a picture of it someday on the site.
