“Better than the last time...”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The last time we ate here I would have given it a lukewarm review at best. This time we sat and ate in the bar and had a much better experience. The bartender was knowledgable and capable as well as very funny. They had some new appitizers and entrees that were VERY flavorfull. The bar area is definetly the best place in this particular Carinos to eat. No kids, grouchy older folks and bartenders generally have restaurant experience, so no "newbee" servers. So much better this time!!

“Declining”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

Food quality has declined. Women servers always good. Men servers always bad. Request a lady. Needs a decor update.
