I had expected more after reading reviews by other diners. My dining experience was less than what I had hoped. The food was okay. My scallops with risotto was dry. My husband wanted duck, it sold out by 7:00. His second choice was rabbit with pasta. The rabbit had bones. The staff was friendly and attentive. The decor was lacking... More

Eric, our server, was the perfect blend of polite, friendly and helpful. We skipped the appetizers and started with a cocktail and salad and soup. The mixed green salad with lemon vinaigrette was tasty and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the mushroom bisque. I loved the Alaskan salmon on the crab risotto, it had an unexpected taste of coconut. Husband really... More

Absolutely great service by Eric. The food was top shelf. The ribeye, the scallops and pork medallions were excellent. Topped off by the chocolate mouse and pomegranate creme brûlée. This was a pleasant experience.

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
