The Carousel has a romantic atmosphere and authentic French cuisine. There are many delicious sounding options that make it hard to pick what to order. Escargot, flambé salad, and steak were particularly good. Although the prices are a little on the high side I'd still recommend this place if you are wanting to be indulgent.

We didn't know what to expect, reviews talked about such slow service, but this was not the case for us. We were greeting promptly and had arrived early for our reservation. We sat at the small bar for a cocktail prior to dinner. We enjoyed the quaint surroundings and ended up sitting at the bar with nice conversation from the... More

Delicious food and decor. Our charming waiter, Eric made Cherries Jubilee table side. Eric, Issac and the other wait staff were professional, well trained and charming. They all deserve a raise! We completely lucked out when we found this restaurant on Yelp. The filet mignon! Could have cut it with a butter knife.

Salmon was crispy on the outside and smothered in cream sauce consistant with smothering an old piece of salmon.

Held a great business dinner here recently. The service was exceptional, the food was awesome, they are doing some remodeling, but found a way to accommodate us that was perfect! A really great experience. There was six of us and we ordered 5 different entries - all great. 4 different deserts - again - all were wonderful. Can't wait to... More

Spent a wonderful morning here having breakfast after a long night on the town. Service was excellent and the food was perfectly prepared. The mimosas and Bloody Mary bar make for an excellent morning beverage - I would highly recommend Carousel for anyone looking for an upscale breakfast. Make reservations if it's a busy weekend in town.

We have been by this location hundreds of times, but never had the occasion to stop in until now. We chose this as our "date night" destination, and found a Groupon to top it off. The setting is a quaint, rustic building, nice and quiet, and off the beaten path, yet just a 1/2 block from busy Yakima Avenue. The... More

We arrived in town at 9:00pm on a Friday night and headed for Carousel. With no reservation and live music in the dining room, they were still able to find a table for us. The setting was so cozy, folks chatted across tables. The word "family" could be heard throughout the night and it seemed to apply to everyone present.... More

This is my favorite place in Yakima. The food is amazing, they have a great wine list and the service is impeccable. The owners are super friendly and everyone you meet makes you feel welcome and at home. They have a really great happy hour.

I would return to this family restaurant 1,000 times 1,000! Everything about this restaurant was beyond incredible! The owners were fantastic and even let me capture them, their creative genius - The Chef, and the indoor decor. An excellent table-side salad creation had our mouths (my husband's & mine) drooling before the waitress could complete it. It did not disappoint!... More
