No one can deny the beauty of the iconic Monterey Bay in California, which beckons thousands of visitors and tourists each year to partake in its rich culture. As a community thriving near the waters where scrumptious ocean life is aplenty, the area is home to some of the finest Monterey restaurants like Domenico’s on the Wharf. For those who dream of a barefoot beach wedding at the sandy shores of the Bay’s rich blue waters, our restaurant is the perfect wedding reception venue.

Romantic Atmosphere

The sea has always been a popular element for countless romantic stories of old. This is why there’s no better way to celebrate a joyous wedding than to be near the refreshing breeze of the open ocean. Domenico’s on the Wharf is conveniently placed near the water which will give wedding guests an expansive view of the beautiful Bay. At night, the Fisherman’s Wharf is even more breathtaking with gorgeous lights of all colors reflecting on the clear waters.


Delight Your Taste Buds with Monterey Bay Spot Prawns from this Restaurant!


Normally, spot prawns can be found from Alaska to San Diego, California. Monterey, in particular is a high-abundance area. These prawn species swim in the depths from 150 to 1,600 feet and are spawned once a year in September. The Fish and Game Commission developed a trap permit for the Monterey spot prawns so that the fishermen may entrap sport prawns just north of Monterey bay, while still following strict regulations to protect the population. We at Domenico’s On the Wharf restaurant are active advocates of sustainable fishing for all kinds of Monterey seafood as well as Alaskan seafood, including the red king crab and sockeye salmon. We make sure to do our part in protecting marine life while preparing mouthwatering seafood dishes, as well as Italian cuisine classics. In fact, we’re one of the few restaurants recognized by the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch as well as the Alaskan Seafood Marketing Institute.
