“Delicious food in the Carmel Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had breakfast and dinner at Wickets Bistro while staying at the Bernardus Lodge. Our food was delicious and the staff very helpful and attentive. I enjoyed the chicken hash for breakfast and their omelets are very good and a good portion. My wife particularly enjoyed their chicken liver pate. My “big-eye” tuna was also very good and well-prepared. One great feature is the outdoor patio, and we enjoyed drinks by the fireplace a couple of times. Our waiter even knew our drink preferences. Mine was a Monterey Rye Manhattan – perfectly prepared. Great food and wonderful staff.

“Great Choice To Eat in Carmel Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I am a vegan. The chef was very accommodating. When you call to make a reservation they will ask if you have any food sensitivities. The food is extremely fresh. You can dress casual. They have a fire pit which it is great to sit and eat dessert/drink coffee.

“Exceeded our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We had tried to book a table at Bernardus' fine dining restaurant but it is closed during the early part of each week. We were offered a reservation at Wickets and decided to try it. We are glad we did. The food is excellent as was the service we received. We asked for an off menu starter and for a change of sides with our main course entrees. Unlike many restaurants these days, each of our requests was met with a great attitude and an "of course we can accomodate your request". Coffee service and desert were worthy of the rest of the meal. We would return in a heartbeat although we are looking forward to a return to the main dining room in July as this is a real treat. I am skeptical of those reviews that were less than "very good" as this is a super place for a casual but excellent meal that is well paced and enjoyable.
