Description: One of Carmel's newest and most exciting dining experience is Christopher's on Lincoln. Award winning chef/owner Christopher J. Caul has transformed one of the village's oldest restaurant locations into a modern, fun, and friendly dinner house. Dress is Carmel casual and the attitude laid back and contemporary, so guests feel comfortable in everything from shorts to suits. Charming and affable, Christopher's cuisine is sublime. Christopher's 30 years of experience as well as his three former restaurants have culminated in a menu that showcases the finest, freshest seasonal ingredients the Central Coast has to offer. Christopher's wine list features mostly Monterey County wines, as well as his favorites from around the state. Christopher's also features a full bar with some of the finest handcrafted spirits available. Christopher is right where he loves to be; come say hello soon!

“ALWAYS amazing food!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

When my husband and I decide to have "date night" while in Carmel we never discuss where. I just go onto open table and make a reservation here!! It is cozy and romantic(especially if you get the window table!) and the food is ALWAYS pure perfection!

“Nice atmosphere and wonderful food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Everything we ordered was perfect. This place is a romantic little gem and the staff was great too! I had the mushroom soup and my dinner parter had the lamb shank and we shared. Nice portions and perfectly seasoned with lots of flavor. Wine that was recommended was perfect too!

“Stellar eating experience!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Loved this little place tucked away on Lincoln...Very romantic (though I was solo! bummer!) with a lovely atmosphere, superb staff, INCREDIBLE food and beverage. Just the perfect ambience and place for dining in Carmel, and within walking distance (as so many are...) to my lodgings. I will definitely be back, no question about it! (not really for kids, a real couples place or solo, for sure!)

“Quiet Ambiance, Good Service, Good Food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We made a last-minute reservation (30-45 minutes advance), I don't recall which night of the week, and had no problem. We had been in Carmel several days and one of the things we liked about Christopher's was that it was quiet, intimate dining, which was a welcome change after the busier, noiser other restaurants we'd been to. The food and drinks were quite good and the service was very good. We would definitely return.
