We made reservations and asked for the Good Old Days as it was referred. When we were seated they gave us a huge menu and I again said we asked for the Good Old Days. They proceeded to seat us somewhere else in the dining room and given another menu. Why couldn't we just stay where we were? The service was superb but the serving of the main dish was soo small. The steak was about a quarter of a regular size. We didn't need a four course dinner just a regular main meal would have been nice.

Don't think I will go again.

Pros: Food & Service Good

Cons: Felt like a second citizen

This is one of John Pisto's best restaurants on the Peninsula! Its not your average family steak house. Its very professional and more along the line of anniversary's & birthday celebrations. The staff is very attentive and friendly. I love coming here for specials occasions and would recommend to anyone!

I took my wife there for our anniversary, I made reservations but didn't really need them, we were seated promplty by a very polite host, and our drinks arrived quickly, our waiter was polite.

The food was some fo the best I have ever eaten!!!! This was the first place I had ever been where you orderd a steak and they brought out several cuts for you to choose form!!! Talk about drooling!!! I was in heaven!

It was cooked to perfection and was so tender it almost cut its self ! We had a great romantic evening, It was not crowded, and the dress was casual for others coming in, I felt out of place wearing a suit...

The only draw back was the bar, too many foul mouth drunks being loud. the good thing was the manager tried his best to keep them quiet.

The prime beef is cooked to perfection...tender, with real back east taste, not bland like western beef. I asked the waiter for A1 sauce, but never used it...the beef tenderloin was that good. The service was there on the spot, but never intrusive. Ambiance was good...nice and quiet, but the decor was nothing special. The prices were outrageous, but worth it every so often on special occasions. Bottom line...John Pisto has done it again.

To find a steak house of this quality in an area primarily known for seafood is amazing. The steak selection is as good as any I have experienced anywhere I have traveled in the US. The additional seafood and vegetarian dishes ensure everyone has something to choose from. The staff goes out of it's way to ensure a pleasurable dining experince. They make you feel like good friends coming over for dinner. FIVE STARS as far as I am concerned!

Considering it was a spontaneous decision to eat at Whaling Station, it was undoubtedly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The prices are a high-ish but worth every last cent. You definitely get your money's worth in every sense. For those like me who cannot part with their inner carnivore, the red meat selections are prime and taste incredible. The seafood is just as wonderful and they have great selections for vegetarians as well. The service is impeccable and not snooty or condescending in any way. I highly recommend a stop into Whaling Station when in Monterey ..... don't forget to call ahead!
