I seldom write bad reviews, for I want others to enjoys places I do. Anton & Michel serves one of the finest meals in Carmel, but when one waiter goes out of his way to ruin this experience the restaurant should be called on it. I have been going to Anton & Michel over a 20-25 year period and have... More

This classic Carmel Restaurant has a very unique atmosphere. Outside the windows is the exquisite Court of Fountains. Outdoor seating available. Classic French presentations available. Be sure to ask for a table by the windows. The back tables have no view.

There were seven of us for dinner recently and all our expectations were surpassed. The restaurant overlooks gardens and water which is lovely in the middle of busy Carmel. The wine list is extensive and the food is excellent. The service was also outstanding. We will be back next year!

Fourth of five dinners in Carmel, the worst ever. Food quality very bad, no concept of what fresh food is and freshly cooked means. Appetizer: grilled artichoke, no flavor at all, definitely not from the locally produced, or very old, seating on a stale and brown on edges lettuce. Complained about the lettuces being old, no apologies. Prime New York... More

We wanted a special place that was romantic for our anniversary. This was it. décor and window table looking over the fountain courtyard was lovely. Easy to walk to from most hotels nearby. The food and service was excellent. My only comment was there was not enough time between each plate. It wasn't rushed but could have been a bit... More

Had my last dinner hear while visiting Carmel. Sat quietly outside by the pool and firepit. Was visited several times by either the manager, or owner. Food was amazing and service was also wonderful. I would definitely recommend it!!

We made a last minute booking and we were so glad we did! The welcome at the door made us feel good. The service all night was excellent. Every dish was above expectation and we would't hesitate to go back again. I was also very impressed with the wine list.

Dined here with a large group for dinner, including family with kids. Restaurant was very accommodating for children and served them first. Full bar and great wine selection. Had the ice berg wedge and the NY steak, both were excellent and the steak was cooked to the request temp. My only complaint was the service was not what I would... More

While not groundbreaking, we had a very nice meal here. The Fountain area in back is a lovely spot. The tableside service is kitschy, but fun.
