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!

This restaurant was recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. We were met by our waiter and shown to a wonderful table by the window to watch the sunset in Carmel. He was most attentive all evening yet not intrusive. The menu is extensive and there were several specials to choose from that evening. All four of our meals were perfectly prepared. I had a Petrale Sole stuffed with crab meat accented by a Lobster reduction sauce. It was perfect and the portions were ample. This restaurant is walking distance to most accomodations in Carmel.

Christopher came by our table to ensure that our evening was going well. I highly recommend this restaurant for that romantic getaway!

Our third night in Carmel, we dined at Christopher's. There were four of us and we had a great table in a corner. Menu had many choices, plus there were a few specials. We each ordered something different and everyone was pleased. The prices were not outrageous and the wine list was good. The creme brûlée was creamy and came with blueberries. Can't wait to return!

It is centrally located so we could walk to the restaurant.

My husband and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary here. The service was amazing. We found this place on Groupon. I was worried that because we had a Groupon voucher that we would be treated differently. That was far from the truth. We had a wonderful evening. We enjoyed champagne, an appetizer, soup and salad, entree, bottle of wine, and dessert. From the champagne to the dessert, everything was above our expectations. We have been in many 5 star restaurants and the service and food was above those levels. My husband had the cooked oysters which he loved. The stuffed sole was full of flavor. My swordfish was delicious. And we can't forget the scrumptious desserts: cheesecake and pecan chocolate cake. We will definitely return for another special occasion in the future, Groupon or not.

We came for the seasonal special of soft shell crabs. We consider these a real treat. They were on the daily special as an appetizer, but were made available to us as a dinner. They were just delicious, with a lovely presentation. We shared a salad as the portions were large, and also a dessert - the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream which was rich and creamy. I think people are excited when they come here and seemed to be enjoying themselves which made the noise level a little louder with all of the lively conversations going on. The atmosphere is inviting, like a living room, and we faced the window where we could see a lovely sunset. The only suggestion I would make for the restaurant is to have the specials written, as it is so many to listen to, and how can one remember what all the waiter said?
