Carmel dining - Passion Fish and Forge in the Forest

sf foodie | Sep 3, 2006 07:57 PM

Had a wonderful dinner last night at Passion Fish in Pacific Grove.

Passion Fish - 8/10 overall

Food highlights - the seafood was fresh and the portions were generous. The grilled Halibut was a touch overcooked, but had a delicious cilantro cream sauce. The grilled striped bass was slightly undercooked and was served over a bed of rosemary rice.

Service - the restaurant was very accomodating when changing our reservation and the service was quite knowledgeable and friendly.

Value - nowhere in Carmel or in the Bay Area will you find such tasty and healthy portions of fresh fish at reasonable prices (~19) per dish.

Forge in the Forest - 5/10 overall

Mediocre and overpriced outdoor dining spot with friendly service and cramped and uneven flooring. The highlight was bucket of clams and mussels for ~$13. The Cobb salad was better than most, but the $11? Black Angus burger and the panko crusted sand dabs were forgettable.

One interesting note regarding pricing - the restaurant has a doggie menu (literally for dogs) that includes a $4 hot dog and $5 1/4 pound hamburger...
