My wife and I were in Carmel when she discovered this restaurant. Its menu said steak with foies gras and she knew I loved it. We made a reservation which we later had to change. The restaurant was more than flexible. We were seated upon arrival, and greeted by our waiter and his assistant. We were... read more

Chose this restaurant because they had a bar. It was okay, not great, but I wouldn't say not to go. I think they were super crowded because the hostess was helping and the bartender seemed really busy and kind of frustrated.

This was just a wonderful meal. If you have never had sweetbreads this is the place to go for it. They were absolutely incredible. My sister-in-law had never experienced this wonderful dish and she is a fan now. Pan sautéed with wild mushrooms in a Demi glaze reduction. I think of them fondly on occasion. You will love them.

Arrived and had to walk around the block (Carmel is very pretty so this wasn't a chore) as our table wasn't ready but given complementary champagne glass as a result (nice touch). We had the Scallops St Jacques and the Veal/Scallops - both incredible dishes and very very rich. 3 courses were off as the mains were so delicious and... More

Be sure to sit at the Chef's table. There are four chairs lined up at the counter to the kitchen. We spent three hours there the first night marveling at the creation of all those plates flying out of that kitchen. All the ingredients are fresh and perfectly prepared. Jacques will even put the sauce on the side - but... More

Friendly staff. My food was wonderful, though my wife's was unexceptional though good. All food presentations were beautifully executed.

Very good quality gourmet French cuisine. Extensive wine list from California, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Italy with moderate to very high prices (some rare bottles from 60s and 70s). The cuisine is rather traditional with some courses on the heavy side. The salad of endives with beets and pears was fresh and crisp with a good mix of flavors and textures, however... More

I cannot say enough good about this place. But let me try: first, it is family owned and operated; and they do a damn good job at it. Great wine list, great food, and reasonably priced for Carmel. Whats more, they go beyond a "tourist level" standard and actually try to be the best foodie place in Carmel. The duck... More

The food here was wonderful; the service was thoughtful. My scallops were perfectly cooked and topped with a wonderful sauce that was just the right combination of garlic and fresh herbs. This is not the newest, hippest place in town - admittedly we were the youngest in the restaurant - but don't let that deter you from checking out this... More

Quaint French restaurant with an excellent wait staff from the host to the server and the 2 other servers in between. The sommelier was knowledgeable and recommended the perfect white wine for our seafood dinner. We both had the sea scallops and they were superb. We had a stuffed shrimp squid in a basil pesto appetizer that was also very... More
