After walking around Cannery Row and visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, we headed over to The Sardine Factory to get some dinner. We arrived just in time for their prix fixe menu special, so we headed on in.
We walked through their bar area to The Conservatory dinning room. It seats about one hundred people and I could see it being a very nice place for a big party or a wedding reception.
Butter, sun-dried tomato spread, and olives
Variety of breads
The Cannery Row, calamari puffs, prawn cocktail, and fried Castroville artichoke rings. This was not part of the prix fixe menu but we really wanted to try some of their appetizers.
“The World Famous” Abalone Bisque – served at the “Taste of America” for President Reagan’s Inauguration. Wow this bisque was delicious. Rich and creamy but you could still taste the sweet seafood flavor.
Grilled Sand Dabs with Chive Risotto and seasonal vegetables
Petite Filet Mignon & Wild Salmon with mashed potatoes, vegetables, port & Hollandaise sauce
Creme Brulee, there was actually a design on the white chocolate but we inhaled it before I realized it… LOL
Overall the meal was delicious and just looking at the photos makes me hungry again. The service was good and dinning in The Conservatory room was very fun. Make sure to check out their blog and Facebook page before you go to see what types of specials they’re running.
