Not your ordinary salad, this fall classic is topped with Point Reyes bleu cheese, grapes, and walnuts, making the Butter Lettuce Salad our favorite lighter fare. #monterey #Salinasvalley #eatlocal #farmtotable #EstebanRestaurant

Chic spot for Spanish & Mediterranean fare with an indoor fireplace & outdoor patio with fire pits.- Google
"They make an excellent martini and a lovely warm chocolate cake dessert."
"Continental breakfast selection was very limited and hot entrees were sub-par."

I know a good restaurant. I use to have one. What they do right: Thomas Snyder walks the floor to see if all is well with the food. The waiter/waitresses are informed and cordial and not silly. Professional is the word. The bartenders I have had have all be professional but not distanced. It is not a sports bar. It is a "bistro" in the classical sense. Small, informal, with good yet simple (not THAT simple) food and good spirits and wine. It is the place I would liked to have had. (I was pretty close.) Even the house wine is far above what I find in most other restaurants. Go. Tell 'em Eric sent you. Whomever Eric is.

Hi Eric, Thank you for dining with us and for your kind spirit. It is truly an honor that you have rated us so highly in such categories such as staff, offerings, and atmosphere.

I've never written a review on Google, and never considered doing so before until I ate at this restaurant and found that I loved it so much, that I thought, "they deserve an awesome rating for this lovely experience". Seriously, a fantastic find. One of the very best restaurants in Monterey, and fair-priced too. Esteban honors the tapas style, while adding their own individual flair to the menu. Very attentive staff. Everything I've tried here has been delicious. Especially love the pulled pork empanadas, the short rib, the button mushrooms, and the apple tart dessert. You can't go wrong here.

Service was very good. Food presentation was good. Food taste was bland, muddy, and uninspired except for the Gem Lettuce Cups which were great. The outdoor fire was also nice.

Last night we had the good fortune to have found Esteban's Restaurant. In a last minute search of dog friendly places and reading the reviews of others we chose Esteban's to celebrate a family birthday. The website was helpful with photos of sample dishes. We very much enjoyed sharing the tapas our waiter helped us select. The unique food, outstanding presentation, helpful attentive staff, and comfortable atmosphere gives this special place 5 stars. We will be back again without a doubt. Do not hesitate.

Saved our Valentine's Day! We had dinner at a place that we didn't like and ended up at Esteban for drinks and dessert. It didn't disappoint. They make an excellent martini and a lovely warm chocolate cake dessert. Our waiter was kind and funny and the whole evening ended up just about perfect!
