The rooftop is the place to go in town for happy hour. We went on a sunny evening that turned a bit chilly and the heaters were put on and they even had blankets to make you comfortable. Drinks are great and I ordered the fish taco's that were really tasty and just perfect for a light meal.

Even on the weekend they have happy hour. Great menu selections. The burger and drink is absolutely delicious, includes fries. Calamari, another favorite and is prepared perfectly. Wait staff and bartenders are terrific. Do check out the dessert menu.

I would recommend this restaurant for solid Italian fare. It didn't knock my socks off but I felt satisfied after leaving. The atmosphere is lively and comfortable.

Our dinner here was lovely but the restaurant was very noisy because of the bar section at one end. Staff were good but we felt rushed to eat and leave because of other people waiting.

Our hotel highly recommended this restaurant, but we had one of my most disappointing restaurant experiences in a long time. First, we had a 7:30 reservation but had to wait 30 minutes for a table. I understand that happens sometimes when earlier diners won't leave their table, but we were essentially ignored for that time. At the 15-20 minute mark,... More

Had a wonderful dinner with the hubby. The waitress was incredibly accommodating to me. I told them my likes/dislikes and she ended up having the kitchen make me something that I absolutely loved! Hubby had a pizza (feta, pesto, and pine nuts) and he loved it. We also had the gnocchi appetizer and it was amazing! Thanks for the fabulous... More

Good food, good drinks, good service... and all in the lovely town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. We came here for dinner with a couple of friends and had a lot of fun. The drinks flowed, the food was yummy Italian, and the server was on top of things. Then the check came ;) It's slightly overpriced, even for the area. There is... More

This place has a very nice restaurant/bar on the first floor but they have a separate bar on the roof. Lots of fire pits and heaters, lots of room to sit although I imagine in the summer this place books. We had drinks and very nice appetizers. When your in Camel this is down from the firehouse and you should... More

So glad we got this recommendation from someone where we were staying! The rooftop bar is a fun place to go in Carmel! Dinner and drinks were great as well!

Walked up on a Saturday night at 8pm with party of 8, of course had to wait, but the hour or so (not bad given the crowd and size of our party) was happily spent on the roof top garden bar with gas fire pits and a lively crowd. Dinner service on the slow side, but not awful. Food was... More
