We dined here for our 15 year wedding anniversary. The poached pear salad was delicious. I had the NY strip which had this wonderful sauce on top with capers. It was a big piece of steak so the price was totally worth it. Plus it came with delicious potato fingers and tasty Brussels sprouts. The building was beautiful. Our waitress... More

Tried to get reservations for dinner at a few other restaurants in the area, but the holiday weekend limited us. Karla's was available so we went there. The place is small-cozy. The staff is very friendly but the staff limited in number which means you're going to wait for service. The wine is limited which means you're going to settle... More

After a tough day dealing with family matters, I took myself to Karla's, based on the reviews others have made, and I wasn't disappointed. Going out to dinner as a single woman can be daunting at times, but Karla's had some small tables in a covered area outside where I was seated. The pan seared salmon with vegetables was just...

We live close by and this is our favorite "local" restaurant. The food is always flavorful and the safe is always friendly. It's a great place for dinner or a late night dessert. In the summer sitting outside is a great spot for people watching. In the winter indoor seating is always nice and cozy.

We were smitten with this restaurant as soon as we walked in! It's cozy and full of the coolest details. We started with really tasty bread and then got the mac and cheese - it definitely could have served 4 people and it was SO perfect for a chilly night! I then got the kale and quinoa salad and my...

Tried this place out based on other TripAdvisor reviews and I wasn't disappointed. It's a charming older building with great ambiance. Both my friend and I are gluten-free dairy-free eaters - we found delightful choices on the menu. We shared a kale & quinoa salad with citrus dressing that was an excellent blend of bitter and sweet. And then we... More

Nice quaint place with very good food, but a bit pricey. The Mac & Cheese was very tasty. Fish tacos good but small portion. Cocktails are good but very high priced
