The Grill on Ocean Avenue

The Grill on Ocean Avenue is one of the Monterey Peninsula's 10 best restaurants, as named by Epicurean Rendezvous Restaurant Guide and the Monterey County Critics Choice list. The cuisine is lyrical, clearly California in its freshness and lightness.

The menus celebrate fresh California tastes and virtuosity in bringing globally influenced flavors together. A warm, friendly and professional staff, a generously diversified California wine list and full bar service ... additional elements that make The Grill on Ocean Avenue "the choice" for locals and visitors alike for lunch and dinner in Carmel.

Designed to be modern but not trendy, The Grill is reminiscent of a San Francisco bistro. The atmosphere is warm and relaxing in a space that is open, bright and airy. Oak and linen trimmings accent a towering Carmel stone fireplace, highlighted by local gallery art and mirrors.

Come and experience The Grill on Ocean Avenue... In the heart of Carmel, just steps away from the beach.



You will find a generous well-balanced California wine list at The Grill on Ocean Avenue. In keeping with its devotion to local flavors, the restaurant offers many Monterey and Carmel Valley selections.

Special selections of Wines-by-the-Glass are also available!

The full bar provides a welcome reprieve from a day of gallery-hopping or golfing eighteen holes at nearby Pebble Beach.
