I first reviewed Monterey right after they opened and my first impressions were less than spectacular. Basically, it had great decor with mediocre food.  So, how did it go a second time around, seven months later with their new Hell’s Kitchen chef Heather West? Well, let’s just say that I would rather eat in a shittier-looking place with better food. I seriously doubt chef West has anything to do with the place, or Chef Gordan Ramsay would be pissed.  I really don’t even want to get into what I ate and and was wrong with it. If you need to really know, please read my first review and follow up. Both still apply today. Bottom line: If you want good food, there are cheaper places in Long Beach that offer much better cuisine. I had Paninis & Bikinis last night and that place is a thousand times better at a much better value.
