I particularly love that you can see the trees lit up from the inside of the restaurant, surrounded. It's beautiful. The food is very good, the service also. It's a little bit dark (hard to read the menu) but we'll definitely be back.

This is not your typical "lobby restaurant" the menu changes with the season and the Chef is very creative. The bar is large and easy to get a seat if you are dining alone. Everyone is very friendly.

We enjoyed two dinners and two breakfasts while staying at the Ranch and would highly recommend it. I am vegan and was able to find items that fit my needs nicely. A good selection of wine is available as well.

Exceptionally good food at this gold and tennis resort. We loved it. Even for a vegetarian there was enough choices.

Both were cooked as I ordered and served with fresh vegetables. I also had the squash soup which was one of the best soups I... More

We spent a week at CV Ranch during Thanksgiving 2013. The outdoor seating is lovely and each evening the resort provides the goodies to make your own s'mores at the fire pit, lots of fun. The restaurant itself is a bit bland nothing striking about it. The food is good but very pricey. Service was good but don't go on... More

Although the décor of the restaurant is nothing spectacular, this is a good place to dine especially if your time at Carmel Valley Ranch is limited, as ours was.

Had a fabulous dinner with friends under the Carmel sky. Food was excellent, service OK. Piano bar inside is very fun. The ranch setting is just beautiful!

While we weren't able to stay for a full meal, the breakfasts were expertly prepared and presented and the evening meals were well above par.
