We were able to fully appreciate the quality of the meals prepared by this expert staff. A multicourse meal prepared and presented with care and expertly paired with wine from the sommelier. Each course prepared was better than the last, and the care ant attention paid to the details were present in every aspect of the food. This restaurant should... More

Bernardus Lodge is a secluded boutique hotel and winery in Carmel Valley. This was our second visit to Marinus. One of the biggest memories I had after my first visit was not the food -- though it was outstanding -- it was the Purse Stool. Yes, that's right, a stool for your purse. After seating us the hostess returned with... More

The wine pairings were unbelievable. Suggestions from Sommeliere Paul were delectable and creative. Very busy night in summer and staff worked efficiently and smoothly. It appeared the sommeliere was running the show. Bravo!

I dined here with four friends roughly three weeks ago and loved every thing about the place. The food, sevice and atmosphere were a true treat. We tried everything thing on the menu it seemed and we ate until we were stuffed. The wine of course was phenomenal and the outdoor seating and fireplace tied the night together very well.... More

Great wine pairings from the sommelier-surfer. Beet salad was outstanding. Morrel risotto was a bit heavy (I know, it's risotto) and the morrels were overwhelmed by the parmesan. Interior is boring....cries out for art. I get the monotone palette highights the food...however more is needed. Floral curtains are dated and inconsistent with interior.

We visited Marinus as part of a little foodie vacation to the Carmel area. What a standout! It was by far the best meal of our trip, and we had plenty of excellent meals. The dining room reminded me of the old Tavern on the Green. We enjoyed a comfortable corner banquette, which the maitre d noted was excellent for... More

Some old friend and my wife and I had my birthday dinner at Marinus at Bernardus last October. I'm still making payments...just kidding. What an incredible joy to find my name on the menu for my birthday meal, fine wine to go with it, and an incredible selection of meticulously conceived and prepared dishes to choose from for the meal....
