Three of us enjoyed a very special night at the restaurant- the service was excellent and each of our three meals and dessert were superb! Our favorite part was the table served spinach flambé salad, absolutely delicious and entertaining to see prepared. We are definitely going back and really... read more

The old building and its history is embraced by the restaurant and incorporated in its decor. The seating is minimal so make sure to make a reservation. Staff, food and ambiance are all first rate. The menu includes all essential French items and what special occasion would be complete without the flaming cherries jubilee for dessert! Wonderful dining experience and... More

A little trick to find but food was well worth the hunt. The atmosphere was just what I was looking for to take the wife out for a night on the town. Their hospitality and attention to detail is second to none - you have to try the flaming salad! Makes dinning a memorable evening or a romantic occasion every... More

My husband and I dined at Carousel on a Friday night. I had called ahead for a reservation as was glad I had. The restaurant is very small, which means that everything is cooked just for you. Our salads, steaks and desert were fantastic and the wine list has plenty of choice without being overwhelming. We appreciated speaking with the... More

Went here for our anniversary. We chose to eat in the Bistro, and the food was excellent. Service very attentive. Price is reasonable. We will definitely go again. Would be a great place to take out of town guests, but think we'll sit in the restaurant part next time. Just because you have more elbow room.

We had a great dinner last night at Carousel. The service and food were both great AND it is pretty inexpensive. Two dinners and a couple of glasses of wine for under $100. We will be back!

The desk at the Hilton suggested a couple of other restaurants which we had already been to. We kept pushing and a young gentleman came from the back and mentioned the "Carousel" Glad he did. A little off the street but a great spot, great atmosphere, well trained staff, good wine and a fantastic meal. Couldn't ask for much more.
