“Nice find in Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

On our first night in Carmel we were exhausted and not pleased by our hotel. Finding this restaurant was a nice ending to a tough travel day. We booked through Open Table, but could have walked right in on a Tuesday night the first week in August. The service was excellent. Husband had scallops with shrimp and pasta, with iceberg wedge with artichoke dressing. I had a filet, which normally comes with shrimp/cheese but I just wanted the filet and they were very accommodating. I had onion soup for my starter which was delicious. Husband had a house wine and total bill was 100.00 which was well worth it. We had a lovely table by the window which overlooks a charming courtyard. Waitstaff is obviously well experienced and the service was faultless. We would have had dessert as it was a lovely menu, but jet lag kicked in.

“Another bad day for the chef”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

There were 4 of us and we all ordered the onion soup and the filet mignon: while the soup was good although on the salty side, the meat was actually inedible- chewy, hard and with an aftertaste and the garlic mashed potato was way too salty to eat. The result was that all 4 of us were unable to eat our plates and we sent them back. Although they did take off 15 percent off our check, it was an overall unpleasant experience and most certainly a missed opportunity for the restaurant. So would not recommend it ....

“Elegant, romantic dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Always a wonderful, attentive meal. Fabulous table side preparation of Caesar salad, rack of land and cherries jubilee. Looking for a spectacular way to celebrate? Classic, elegant presentation not to be missed for special occasions in heart of Carmel.

“One of the best in Carmel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stopped here for a quiet lunch & were taken by surprise that the restaurant had no other guests. We shared an appetizer of duck pate & brie. Then came a perfectly prepared serving of the classic French onion soup. This was absolutely delicious. Best I’ve ever had. Found from the waiter that the restaurant has been serving this classic dish for 34 years. Also enjoyed a glass of McInty Pinot Noir. Marvelous lunch. Hope to return for dinner soon.
