We sat for a very long time waiting for a waiter/waitress. Finally had to ask for someone to bring some water and help us. We were virtually ignored. Ironically there were extra staff just standing around. Finally got some service for our table of 2. Sadly there were only 6 customers in the entire place. In fairness, the wine and cheese was good. Plenty of room for improvement.

“Definitely worth the price!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

My husband and I have traveled to many places around the world and experienced many different types of cuisine in many different settings. This was by far one of the best. We had no reservation on a Sunday evening and they graciously took us with no hassle for the room being on the smaller side. I also have a gluten allergy which many restaurants have absolutely no idea what this even means, however almost every single item on their menu accommodated my needs! We each had a glass of wine, with our bread for the table (mine was gluten free, freshly made, light and airy, and delicious) while we waited for our escargot-my first time ever. We then had two pizzas on gluten free pizza dough, one with goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes; the other with anchovies and fresh tomato slices. Everything we tasted here was absolutely delicious and was obviously freshly made. We waited longer than a chain restaurant for our food, but we had no complaints as we prefer our food fresh and wait slightly longer, than it being nuked in a microwave and speedy. The service was incredible as each of the 4 servers that night and the hostess checked on us throughout the meal. Even though there was a glass pitcher at our table to refill our water ourselves, we never once touched it as the servers refilled our glasses as they walked by without us asking for it. Such a pleasant experience and we highly recommend this eatery if you are in the area.

“The table by the BAR!!!!!!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Not the suggested location for dinner but as fate would have it the first was too busy and did not have much in the way of style or character. We found this by accident, what an accident. We were greeted at the door and yes they had a table.

We were escorted to a four top by the bar and the fireplace. We found it to be a little wobbly and we ask to let them fix the issue. I said NO absolutely NO, that it was perfect next to both the bar and the fireplace. It was part of the character of the restaurant and would not let them change it.

The meal excellent, the Chef was entertaining and the food exquisite. You pick the appetizer and the entree but be sure to have the table side Crapes.

A great place to enjoy ambiance, great service and an inspiring Chef.

Ask for the Wobble Table by the Bar and Fireplace, just little special.

“Ended up here by default and were pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our first choice for dinner turned out to be a total bust and we walked around town trying to find and alternative. This exceeded our expectations. We started with the salmon en brioche with arugula, chevre and caramelized onions. This was one of the best appetizers I have ever had. We shared a filet with their bearnaise suce and seasonal veggies. The sauce was amazing. A special thanks to Sergio, our waiter. He was fun and attentive without intruding. A worthwhile visit for anyone in Carmel.

“Gluten free heaven in Carmel!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner at Le St. Tropez. Lovely spot in the heart of Carmel. Food was great. Best gluten free pizza my kids have ever had. Virtually the entire menu could be made gluten free, and still tasty. Our server was very friendly and attentive, suggesting spots in the area to visit.
