Excellent Food

Carver's provides a variety of American foods, well prepared and at reasonable prices. Check on-line to see when their specials are (usually Mondays) as you can get around half price meals.

I have been here a few times both before we moved out of SD and when we go back to visit. It is a family tradition to go to dinner on Christmas Eve so that no one has to cook or do dishes so we can go to church and get to bed early. We made reservations with no problems.... More

We eat at Carvers often. We think your restaurant is one of the best in San Diego. We took our entire family for Christmas Eve dinner and everybody is still raving about it. We asked that Amine to wait on us as he has done it several times before. He went out of his way to provide great service. Thanks... More

Carvers is on its game in the competitive world of restaurants in the San Diego area. Five of us went on a Saturday night to celebrate our son's birthday. The place looked pretty packed to us - glad we had reservations. We were brought to a corner table in a great location and our waiter was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and... More

Five of us visited for dinner on a Friday evening. Our two hosts had eaten at Carvers regularly and told us to expect a delicious meal. Having eaten at a number of fine steakhouses and at chain steakhouses over the years, we were well-prepared to evaluate Carvers. It was disappointing. Located in an upscale area and housed in a nice... More

Celebrated birthday of wonderful girlfriend here. This is the best and only upscale/nice restaurant in the rancho Bernardo area. Great steak selection. Only reason not a 5 was incredibly short staffed on a Friday night... Also no prime rib on the night we went, which wasn't an issue as had other steaks. One of the better (not the best) steaks...

Our group of eight visited Carvers in San Diego for dinner on a Friday night. Our reservation was for 8:00 pm, and the restaurant was already beginning to thin, although the bar scene seemed active (if you were over 55). Our group had a mixed experienced. Some though their steaks were great, while others reported others "all right," at best.... More

Had a wonderful family dinner here in August. Food was excellent and prices were very reasonable for the quality and service. Dine here if you can. You will enjoy it.
