Celebrating my husband's birthday at this restaurant was perfect. We had reservations, got a great table and fantastic service, I don't think there was a wait-person in the place who wasn't having fun and enjoying their job (or they are all actors, which is a very real possibility!). That just makes it so much more fun for the customers, when... More

Food was excellent, with ample choices. Great pizza, amazing oysters in champagne and a top beet salad. The winelist per glass is outstanding. And reviewing the reserve winelist is more than a reason to return. From various latache to 1990 Lafite, it was there. For a restaurant with this love of food and wine, the service could have been better.... More

Very nice decoration. Very good service. Two rooms. Nowhere to wait. We took the special Ribeye of the day. It was delicious!

The best Mocha I have ever had and one of the best breakfasts as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the Village Combo and wish I had more mornings because the Wood-Fired Eggs looked to-die-for.

Also one of our two favorites in Carmel....great dinner with the family. Menu changes frequently, but pizzas are a mainstay, which are great. We had a great time, but their main sominila (wine guy) is only friendly to the "select crowd". This is the only disappointing part of our annual dinner there.

A restaurant seemingly marketed as a French/Belgium establishment but serves pizza-mmh, rather odd. Certainly popular the night we went. More like a local college hang out where staff and customers know each other: great for them sadly not so good to outsiders waiting to place their orders/ waiting for their meals. Would likely take my custom elsewhere next time.

We walked by while the staff was setting up for dinner. Very gracious- allowed us to put a to-go order in before they even opened for the evening. Dinner was ready when we came back later-at the exact time they suggested. Easy foods to please a wide variety of people.

We were walking back late one night in beautiful Carmel from another restaurant and saw how busy this restaurant was. The following evening we strolled up without booking, waited 10 minutes for a table and it was more than worth the short wait. The place was "buzzing", service was very friendly and attentive and the food, I had a perfectly... More

We were so pleased with the meal, the service and the staff that we booked a second visit before we left. The sauces were perfection, vegetables perfectly cooked with the steak. Pizza was amazing and for dessert the latte superb with the delicious tart tartin.

Thank Debra B
