“Great dinner and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We arrived in Carmel and spent our first night at the rooftop bar at Vesuvio. The food and service were both great. Mckinna was great and her recomendations were spot on. This is our second time in Carmel but our first at Vesuvio- we will be back.

“Carmel hot spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Friends and family gathered on the roof top for happy hour on a warm night. Great wine, tacos, good service and comfy patio seating will bring us back.

“Food is ok but watch out for the service and pricing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

This one is a four star on food, a two star on service, a four star on ambience, and a two star on pricing. Hmm-so that averages out to about three stars. You can get in during the week in Carmel's tourist season, so that is a plus, on the other hand the really good places are jammed. Lots of good pasta dishes keep it out of the 2 star category, but it is more than fully priced with a glass or two of wine. Very commercial feel to it.

“nice roof top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed the roof top for a cocktail and dessert. Very sheek yet comfy place to hang out after dinner.

“Coolest rooftop terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to this place by a local, it was a great find. The music, decor and ambiance were perfect for a relaxing Saturday night in Carmel. We just had drinks as ate elsewhere earlier, but restaurant looked good too.
Highly recommend this place
