Good lunch place but nothing stood out as being exceptionally good. But nothing was bad about the food either. A $30 corkage fee, which I think is fairly expensive especially since there are so many tasting rooms around the restaurant. Overall a pleasant lunch experience.

I'm loving LaBicyclette. A family owned and ran restaurant, we enjoyed breakfast. Everything is cooked in a wood fired oven, so the food is exceptional and delicious. Everything is locally sourced and organic. The combinations are unique and delightful. The space is petite and very european. A must do if you can fit it in for any meal.

We enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The service was pleasant, the atmosphere comfortable, and we didn't feel rushed (I find service in American restaurants to generally be too fast), and my husband was even able to try tasters when he couldn't choose which wine he wished to order. Our pizzas were great - very much gourmet pizzas, and very... More

I have been here many times for a glass of wine and snack and it was always good and a nice atmosphere. We tried it for breakfast and it was quite disappointing. The service was so slow we almost left. Then the food was not at all worth the prices. Eggs ranchero were eggs on top of a fried tortilla... More

the service; very bad. Not friendly at all. The food is really average. Very overpriced. It is not the worse in Carmel but it is just not worth the price they charge. The place is kind of cute but you will not eat anything especial here!

This bistro looks and tastes like France, in the heart of downtown Carmel. Great atmosphere and vibe. Excellent service. Our only negative was the small portions with high prices. Other than that, a great spot.

Called in here on a mid week night in September and the place was mega busy even for early evening. Relatively informal, mid priced food. Wine can be pricey unless you are selective. Pizza was different, made without tomato sauce which gave a different perspective; the steak was 'melt-in-your mouth' good. Well worth a reservation. Recommended.

I was traveling through Carmel and ran across this place - what a find for the pizza lover. Very unique menu and toppings. Loved the roasted beet salad, which was an exciting addition to our pizza encounter. The butternut squash was superb - the best of the 4 types we ordered that day. I've never seen this choice elsewhere before.... More

With a party of six, went to La Bicyclette for dinner and were treated to a most wonderful evening. Service, food and wine were off the charts good! Absolutely no hesitations in recommending this restaurant for fine dining!

I can see the potential of this place - it looks nice and the menu was small but with a few tempting options. We tried the pizzas which were fine and I liked how they tried to invent interesting topping combinations (using figs and golden raisins and other novel pizza toppings). However, the service was not up to the standards... More
