I've eaten here several time and it's always been spot on. I usually have their steak and it has always been done to perfection, actually causing me to raise my standards. I didn't realize they serve brunch so am looking forward to making that explore....More

White tablecloth serve with great meat entrees a few vegetarian choices. Very accommodating and recommended a few combos to make a great meal. Definitely worth a stop. Service was a bit slow but good food takes time.

We had a great experience here for our 12th wedding anniversary. I have lived in Yakima my whole life and never been here before. I had the Filet and Wife had the Seafood Paella. Both were fantastic and we will definitely be back! Thank you!

Carousel presented us with one of our most memorable dining experiences we have had in years. You can't see it from Front Street. It is tucked away behind the McDonalds on N. 1st and W. Yakima Ave. We walked past the cozy outside eating area...More

A nice small boutique restaurant that I want to see succeed under its new ownership. Upon arrival we were offered one of two dining areas - the main space (with its unique black and white silent movie screen) or a separate smaller space. I never...More

Good atmosphere, great service, starters were excellent. I had trout which was over-cooked and hard to eat. Maybe I shouldn't have ordered fish. Good cherries jubilee for desert. For the price you would expect a great dinner. This was not.

I had the mixed greens salad with the lemon-herb vinaigrette dressing. The dressing was the best I’ve ever had, truly fantastic. My entree was okay, but spendy, especially considering the portion size. Dessert was average
