This resteraunt is a partial employee owned establishment and in my opinion is really what makes this place stand out. Our waited was great and provided the perfect balance of coversation and space. I had conversations with two servers and they were equally impressive. Very knowledgable and inquiring. They start everyone out with a mango salsa and chips (great) and the meals are moderatly priced as well as the wine list. This is a great place to take family or firends visiting from afar. Tucked in to the heart of carmel, if you are in the mood for california fusion please try this place. You will quickly become a fan!
