    went there for dinner with my in-laws. All of us like the bread basket with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, the bread were served toasty warm and there were two kinds of bread offered, I like the one with cranberry in it. My wife had the chicken pasta, and she liked it very much, but I find that a bit heavy on the source. The rest of us all have steaks(fillet mignon, ribeye, and New York), all of them were done to our liking. Overall, I would say if u want a casual dinner with reasonable price and good food, this is the place to go.

    My wife and I both had beef, which was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and our companions had seafood. From beginning to end, the whole meal was well prepared, well presented and the right amount: we even had room for dessert! Service was prompt and attentive. And the peace and quiet from a lack of whining and fussing kids at other tables was most welcome. We'll be back.

    The website fooled me, congratulations it's very nicely done. I was looking for an upscale steakhouse in Richmond and was just disappointed. The food quality is what you would get a your hotel cafe, I had the ceasar salad, ribeye, and 3 cheesecake desert. The waitress kept forgeting to bring me what I requested: drink order, salt to spice up the food and finally the bill. You get what you pay for, about $45. I don't who name it the "Best in Richmond", I guess next time I go into the city.

    The service at carver's was exceptional. When we arrived the music was a little too loud but that seemed to be rectified. The food was good although on the pricey side. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the complimentary parking was appreciated Elaine

    Food and service were great! It is a restaurant in a hotel. Low noise level. Recommend getting a booth or a table along front windows. Our steak and lamb shank were delicious. The meal package was good value. Presentation was beautiful. Salad, chowder and desserts were fine- presented nicely and tasty enough. We will go back. Loved the Cosmopolitan I had! It's nice to be in a place that isn't noisy and you can have a conversation.

    We very much enjoyed our night out at Carver's. The food and service were very good. The only think we did not like was that it was very dark, and on a lovely evening would have preferred somewhere a little more open. But I do understand that the outside parking lot and road is not a very good view so keep the curtains closed is understandable. On the whole I would go back again for the good food and service.

    After some of the negative reviews I was worried. Completely different experience than other diners. We were greeted warmly. Great wait staff, and yes we were using the Social Shopper coupon. Salt and Pepper prawns for the starter, I'll be back just for them! I had the filet, my husband has the rib eye, both cooked perfectly, very nice sides. Lemon cheesecake (to die for) for desert. Nice wine list. We weren't rushed. A very enjoyable evening. We will definitely be back. A first class steak house! Thank you!

    When we got to the restaurant, there was nobody at the front of house to help us. We had to flag down a server to get a table. Even with a reservation, the only table available was one in front of the kitchen. The service was very disappointing. After we were handed the menus, we waited more than 10 minutes for the waitress to come back. We had to call the waitress to take our order. The same happened when we wanted dessert, we had to call our waitress over to get the menu and again to order. By the time the check came, we were tired of waiting another 10 minutes and finally went to pay at the front. We spent more than 2 hours here and just wanted to leave by the end. Food was decent at least.

    2 servers. Waited an hour for our main course on a Monday. Most people had the coupon from social. Worst western dinner I've ever had. Perhaps the promotion worsten the restaurant as it can't handle it. Food portion was small and if the hotel isn't subsidize the restaurant then it will close down or continue to lose customers and money.

    We were using a Social Shopper voucher and we arrived at 5pm and were seated promptly. The bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was delicious. we ordered the black tiger prawns and calamari both were great. we also ordered the 12 oz prime rib red but not juicy like prime rib should be also was rubbery. I like my meat and from a steakhouse i found this upsetting. My son ordered the chicken which was on the dry side and my daughter had the halibut on pasta that was good. Deserts were great chocolate explosion and the chocolate with cheesecake both great.

    Had the filet (nicely cooked and seared), cheese bread (superb!) and Beef Goulash (a bit salty, should've ordered seafood chowder instead). I previously tried the new york steak at this place, but it was awful, so the quality of the filet surprised me. Besides, the macaroon as dessert was superb as well. Though the service was mediocre, since there were only 2 waiters serving 10+ tables. Although services were a bit slow, the waiters were friendly and kind, so not much complaints. Would go there again.

    Went with my husband and teenage son. Service was outstanding but slow considering we were a family just out for dinner. Suitable for a romantic dinner or friends night out catching up on lost time. Our waiter was highly commendable ...very professional, knowledgeable and attentive. Gave us helpful advise on what to order. I would definitely go back for a special occasion.

    I came here for my birthday using a voucher. Ambiance was nice, menu was pretty standard for a steakhouse but the servers were all pleasant and extremely service-oriented. My starving boyfriend was offered bread, and then bread refills which he gladly took. We both had filet mignon (his was larger and cooked to requested temp, mine was a little under) still really juicy and delicious. Smaller wine selection but they had a nice little cocktail menu. Overall, I enjoyed my experience though I probably wouldn't come back given the location (remote Richmond) and how far I would have to drive from Vancouver. Our bill was reasonable with the voucher but would have leaned on the pricier side without.

    Food is very good. Steak is good. Add $8 for starter and dessert, it worth it. I think because of Father's Day, very busy and full house, services is not that great. They didn't ask for a drink at the beginning, and did not come to ask "How is the food?" I will give them a second chance /try but will be on some regular day, and see if the service will be better.

    I wanted to take my husband our for a steak dinner for his birthday as he loves steak, but I was looking for something different than the same old Keg experience. My parents, who live in Richmond, were joining us for dinner, so I decided to select a steakhouse out that way. After reading many favourable reviews on Carver's, I booked a reservation for 4 of us for a Saturday evening --- great choice! My husband, who along with my father ordered the rib eye, said it was the best steak he'd ever had.....beat what he's had at the Keg hands down. My mother was equally enthusiastic about her filet mignon, and I loved my seafood linguine --- and was even happier I had leftovers to take home with me! We'll definitely dine at Carver's again.
