Those of you coming to The Sanctuary Beach Resort on a Monterey business trip will need to know where to take colleagues and clients to give them the best taste of the city. Here are the best business lunch restaurants in Monterey.

Monterey’s Fish House

Tap into the region’s rich seafood scene, while impressing your fellow diners with the stately and picturesque Monterey Fish House. Located right on Monterey Bay, the restaurant gives you and your party gorgeous views to enjoy, while indulging in the area’s freshest seafood, which has been praised on Guy Fieri’s hit show Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives.

Monterey’s Fish House. 2114 Del Monte Ave.  (831) 373-4647

Sandbar & Grill

Located right on Monterey’s Wharf II—one of the area’s most gorgeous and popular marinas—diners at the Sandbar & Grill can enjoy views of some elegant boats and the bay beyond. If you’re working with any yacht or sailing lovers, this might just be the restaurant to take them to. The house-made clam chowder is a can’t-fail app, and the “Louie Salad” with dungeness crab and prawns is another fan favorite.

Sandbar & Grill. Wharf II. (831) 373-2818

Domenico’s On The Wharf

Floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbor and Monterey Bay, fresh Alaskan seafood brought in daily, and some of the best Italian food in Monterey—these are all things that make Domenico’s a great place to enjoy a business lunch. Extensive wine lists, and daily happy hours will help you let loose with clients and colleagues, and house specialties like the cioppino will have your whole party more than satisfied.

Domenico’s On The Wharf. 50 Fishermans Wharf #1. (831) 372-3655

Jeninni Kitchen + Wine Bar

This relatively new wine bar on the Monterey Peninsula is an excellent spot to sample the region’s world famous varietals, with a Mediterranean menu that’s rivaled by few in the area. Clients ranging from craft-beer lovers to coffee lovers can also find exciting drinks here. Dishes like the shawarma pork buns and charred octopus will make you want to book all of your client meetings in Monterey here.

Jeninni Kitchen + Wine Bar. 542 Lighthouse Avenue. 831-920-2662
