We went for brunch with California cousins. It is a la carte and there is only a small selection, which is OK, but not special, and pricey for what is delivered. Rest rooms are upstairs. It wasn't a problem for us as there was none, but note that they allow dogs a la France inside as well as outside. We... More

My wife and I visited Terry's Lounge during our visit to Carmel earlier this month. The atmosphere within, suited the name of the place, it was equal to walking into a very dim lit bar. The taste of the food was decent enough, but very pricey in comparison the amount of food that was served. Seating was very uncomfortable and... More

Read a lot of reviews plus hotel recommendations and all seemed positive. However, from the moment we said we did not have a lunch reservation the hospitality went South. We have never, in all the restaurants we have been to worldwide, found staff with such negative attitudes, not a smile to be seen a thank you extended. Given a table... More

Just finished a great meal here at Terry's. Reservations at 9:00 PM for a birthday celebration.i had the chick pea curry and the birthday girl had a ravioli dish both were superb. Portions sizing was perfect and the quality of the food and the service were also top notch. We highly recommend a visit. Oh and by the way the... More

This historic inn is perfect for a romantic lunch...on the patio among the tourists and locals who are clearly in love with their canines. Lunch was delicious. Try the BLT with fries or any of the salads. The patio is a haven for people and their pets. Plus the added allure of its owner, the beloved actress Doris Day, makes... More

The Doris memorabilia factor is huge, and remembering Americas sweetheart is so easy to do here! The food is excellent and the wine is also. We were pleasantly surprised and would have eaten here again if our trip was longer! We also enjoyed the late night cocktails.

This living room style lounge has great music on Friday and Saturday evening with a piano player and singer (both very talented). Great service.

Was able to make a reservation for us and our dog. The food was well priced and quite nice -- the wine selection was ample and prices weren't crazy. They are very very dog friendly to the point you can take your pooch inside to the restaurant and bar/lounge. This isn't something many places will do as often dogs need... More

The restaurant is inside the Cypress Hotel jointly owned by (91 year-old) Doris Day! Shouldn't really tell a lady's age, but a celebration is a celebration. The food and service were great and we watched Doris Day movies playing around the dining area as we ate, surrounded by DD memorabilia. Only downside was animals in the restaurant. Some people brought... More
