This is a very strange place. Having eaten here a dozen times, I give up. The menu is a little "different". Their record is maybe 50% as far as getting the order correct. I had the sirloin tonight and it was HORRIBLE. The manager came out and informed me that when it is ordered well done, it will be tough!... More

Everything that I tasted from the 4 entrees that were at our table were delicious. There was not one thing I tried that I wouldn't order again. The bill ended up being around $100 for us all with no alcohol included. They do have a great Sunday Brunch. I really like the food here but prefer to go during Happy... More

I was very disappointed in this wine bar/restaurant. I went there with four of my friends for a late birthday lunch (around 1:30) as it came highly recommended to me. When we arrived we were seated in the lounge area near the bar. We sat there for a good 15 minutes before flagging down a passing server to ask who... More

Carmel's (named confusingly after Carmel, California by a whimsical owner--there is no carmel on the menu that I noticed) is a modern and delicious hip spot for lunch. Modern: the presentations, combinations, and the iPad for ordering and payments are all 21st century slick. I could live without the iPad. I enjoy conversing with waitstaff and would not trust a...

Even if you've never been to Carmel Cafe & Wine Bar, from the moment you walk in you feel as if you've returned to a familiar place for it is warm and inviting. The food selection is excellent and somewhat nouveau...and seriously doubt you will go wrong with any selection from the menu. Although this is advertised as a wine... More

The new eatery has a lot going for it - interesting menu choices which happen to employ the use of an electronic tablet that allows for visualization of what you wish to order. The size of the portions are appropriate for the cost, which also seems to have an adequate price point considering the range of food offerings and how... More

Carmel Cafe and Wine Bar is a wonderful experience. Located at the corner of Jamestown Blvd. and St. Rd. 434 in Altamonte Springs, Fl. From the moment you enter you are overwhelmed by the top notch service and beautiful atmosphere. From the hostess, to your server and even the executive chef, came to our table to ensure our satisfaction. Extensive... More

So happy to have Carmel move into our area. Love the selection and great atmosphere. Food was great, caution that the spice level can be high on a few things. Will continue to enjoy Carmel.

This newly opened restaurant was fantastic. The food, wine & service was outstanding. It would be hard to beat a dining experience this good. Try this place, you will really, really like it (assuming it stays as excellent as it was tonight).
