Great Happy Hour food! Friendly people...

Servers are amazing despite the crowded and boisterous happy hour crowd. We met a lot of wonderful people and had a great time. Be careful, though. At 6 p.m. the happy hour prices go up to the regular menu price. Beautiful roof-top bar and also a nice indoor restaurant below.

Romantic in the evening with great food and drinks. Nice during the daytime as well but comes into its own after dark

We had a late lunch at Vesuvio after checking in at our hotel. It was based on the receptionists recommendation that we went to Vesuvio. Upon entering the restaurant I was struck by the old world charm of it's interiors and the genuine friendliness of the receptionist who turned us over to the equally friendly server. The music they play... More

Charming atmosphere. Very good service. My Veal Marsala was done to perfection, and my husband said the halibut was the best he'd ever eaten. And that's really saying something considering we're from the Pacific Northwest, where fresh halibut shares the throne with salmon. We are going to try Vesuvio's sister restaurant for lunch tomorrow.

The atmosphere is nice (inside) though I won't recommend this place for families. Dinner is definitely for couples. I had dinner with my two teens and felt a little unwelcome by the hostess and given the kitchen table. Our server was over-the-top friendly making up for it. He was 'on' at every table so the service was good. The Osso... More

Visiting Carmel by the Sea by myself and my hotel recommended this restaurant. When I got there there was a 20 minute wait for a table so I decided to sit at the bar. There were several seats open and only four other guests at the bar. When I sat down the bartender was engaged in a conversation with a... More

Our experience here was just average. While the food was good, it was nothing special. The service as just ok...would not return.

This review is just for the roof-top bar. We only ordered drinks (no food). My hubby and I came to relax at Vesuvios two nights during our vacation in Carmel. You basically come in through the restaurant's main entrance and walk up the stairs behind the host's table. The roof-top bar is very comfortable and has nice decor. There is... More

We started with a drink on the roof top deck which was lovely with great service. We went down to the dining room for dinner. The food was mediocre and the service very slow. My ravioli was lukewarm at best. I waited so long for it that I did not dare send it back. No one was impressed with their... More
