My wife and I visited this restaurant with two other couples. We appreciate that lots of things in Carmel are upscale, but a restaurant can be upscale without being pretentious. I suspect that our experience was colored by the attitude of our waiter. He was clearly trying to steer us to the higher end of the wine list, an approach that always irritates me. The wine was good, but we've had its equal at half the price in other places. The food was good, but definitely not outstanding. Not one of the six at our table raved about their meal. We probably won't return.
