Description: One of Carmel's newest and most exciting dining experience is Christopher's on Lincoln. Award winning chef/owner Christopher J. Caul has transformed one of the village's oldest restaurant locations into a modern, fun, and friendly dinner house. Dress is Carmel casual and the attitude laid back and contemporary, so guests feel comfortable in everything from shorts to suits. Charming and affable, Christopher's cuisine is sublime. Christopher's 30 years of experience as well as his three former restaurants have culminated in a menu that showcases the finest, freshest seasonal ingredients the Central Coast has to offer. Christopher's wine list features mostly Monterey County wines, as well as his favorites from around the state. Christopher's also features a full bar with some of the finest handcrafted spirits available. Christopher is right where he loves to be; come say hello soon!

“Lovely dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

When ended our vacation in Carmel with dinner at Christopher's. What a lovely place. The restaurant is charming, the service friendly and attentive, and the food absolutely exquisite. The appetizers were delicious: a cream of mushroom soup with a hint of horseradish, baked oysters (not Rockefeller) with the right amount of cheese and spices. The shellfish medley over a bed of linguini was one of the best we ever had. Next time in Carmel, we'll start and end our visit with dinner at Christopher's!

“Perfect Wedding Reception Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We cannot say enough great things about Christopher and his staff. From the moment we decided to have our wedding reception at his restaurant, we had complete confidence that everything would be absolutely wonderful and we were not disappointed. In fact, everything was even better than we could have imagined. Christopher and his whole staff did more than we expected and more than was required to make an absolutely perfect evening. They were very easy to work with. The restaurant itself is beautiful and romantic with a fireplace in the dining room. We had so many compliments from our guests about how much they loved the food.

“I recommend it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Good food, good service and keeping with Carmel a little expensive. But the staff was gracious and not pushy. Very pleasant experience.
