Without restaurants, waiters would purposelessly wander parks all day, folding swans out of actual swans. Keep their hands occupied with this Groupon.

Dishes Bistro & Grill
When the Monterey County Herald's Sam Laage stopped by Dishes Bistro & Grill in September 2013, he said in a review that places such as Dishes prove that if you cook good food, have good service, and offer a comfortable atmosphere, people will come to you no matter where you are. Laage was perhaps most impressed by the Italian-style food at Dishes. He said the roasted medallions of pork tenderloin were "fork-tender but satisfyingly chewy" and called the oniony marmalade "inspired." One member of Laage's party was vegetarian and opted for one of the restaurant's vegetarian dishes, the ravioli al pesto, which Laage sampled and declared to have an "expertly balanced sauce."
Laage loved his food and the experience so much that he came back for a second visit. This time, he got to try the fresh blackened halibut and said "my mouth came alive with one taste." His final conclusion? "Do yourself a favor, check them out. GO!"

“We hadn't been to the Monterey area in years and used groupon to help us find places to eat using the references as our guide. THIS restaurant is a GEM! Wow is all I can say. I ordered the salmon blackened with kalamata olives, capers and more on top and Oh My Goodness, the best salmon I've ever tasted. I was even impressed with the vegetables - not your usual steamed plain veggies. No, these were cooked with seasoning and included the following: spinach, mushrooms, carrots, zucchini, broccoli. They were awesome. My husband had the clams linguine and it was tasty. We had dessert, although full but couldn't resist tasting the desserts - spumoni gelato and apple struedel. Delish! Would go there again and again. The owner is a wonderful man who took time with us and we were very appreciative. He was our waiter. Full bar - which is great!”
“Always enjoy coming here. Very friendly staff and delicious food every time!”
