I really wanted to love this place. I think the concept is great, however after four bad experiences I'm done. First brunch visit my French Toast was dusted with salt instead of sugar and had to be remade. Second brunch visit all the tables around us received complimentary blueberry muffins, our table did not. Brunch number three, we were told... More

We have been coming to Carmel cafe since the opening on dale mabry in Tampa and we have always enjoyed coming to the countryside location. They have changed their menu!!! They no longer have the staples like Nan's goat cheese and tomato bisque. The mushroom bisque was exotic. The fries were over cooked. When it came to dessert we used... More

Recommended by my daughter and a friend we had a late dinner last Friday. The appetizers were great, the service was excellent and the ambiance, casual, elegant. The food was very well presented, delicious and a great wine list. The bar looked very nice for a group of friends to have a great time! I strongly recommend this cozy restaurant.

Went for Sunday brunch. They were understaffed. Coffee tasted like it had been sitting a while. Food was okay. Ambiance okay. Clean. Service was slow. They brag about their "homemade sweet roll" however, they were "out". Not interested in returning.

I love taking my family here. The service is uniquely exceptional, which I think has a lot to do with the iPad menu that connects to the bar and kitchen. That allows the servers to focus on more customer service. We always go for the wine specials. We usually share a bunch of small plates. The Mediterranean app is one... More

Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Food and service was excellent. Only complaint would be our server was new (but she was so nice and did a great job), her trainer was rude and made her look uncomfortable. So get rid of the trainer, and keep the server.

Husband and I ate here for dinner last night. Chelsea (owner? manager?) went out of her way to cut up fresh veggies to use with the spinach dip (it normally comes with fried pita bread - lotsa calories!) even though veggies weren't on the menu. The waitress Natalie helped us get our free appetizer for signing up for their rewards... More

We dined here for lunch. I had the steak frites and my husband had the short ribs. Although the fries that accompanied my steak were grossly over seasoned, everything else we ordered was cooked to perfection and delicious. Our meal arrived piping hot and in a fair amount of time. I will say our wine was very cold. It should... More

Been curious about their Prix-Fixe Menu (advertised on Carrollwood neigborhood magazine) for a while, so I finally tried it. Small portions, but just right for me. No need for To-Go Box afterwards. *Note though that I had a late lunch, and this is early dinner - so the servings would definitely be too small for bigger guys. The place is... More

We wanted to have a special meal before heading out the next day. The atmosphere is inviting, the service is good and the food is excellent. Suggest reservations during busy season. My friend order pork tenderloin which she had remembered as being very good. This one did not disappoint. I ordered Red Snapper which was excellent. A good time was... More
