    We made a reservation for early dinner. Walked into the restaurant, seeing several vacant tables by the window overlooking the beautiful backyard pond… we asked if we could have one of the tables, the concierge told us they were all reserved… gave us a table by the wall… we asked for something better, our only option was to sit outside. I enjoyed it; my significant other … not as much… our waitress was great, the food was outstanding.. our initial experience was the fly in the ointment…

    Dinner with special friends was so enjoyable. The outdoor table next to the fire pit and fountain pool was very nice. Staff was very helpful with food choices. The Maitre d was so helpful with perfect wine choices. We had nearly every appetizer, all were excellent. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks, Luiz!

    It was our 25th wedding anniversary and from the moment we checked in until we walked out our anniversary was acknowledged ~ that was so thoughtful. The ambiance was nice, the service was excellent and food was delicious. A lovely place to celebrate a special occasion.

    Shrimp and scallop pasta dish DEPLORABLE. Tasteless, rubbery. Not made with love or finesse! Paid $50 for a Carmel Valley wine, ie: local and it was acidic and young. ; ( Meat dishes: rack of lamb and short ribs were nicely done and enjoyed Radicchio and Endive salad a delight Waiter was professional and attentive as we could've hoped

    The steak was over cooked and the second time around it still wasn’t right. Service in the beginning was great and then it turned for the worst. We were sitting at the table for 15 min till we asked them to clear our plates.

    We make it a point to stop at Anton & Michel for lunch every time we visit Carmel. They are pet friendly and their patio dining provides a beautiful experience for us and our two Westies. Everyone is friendly, and on this particular trip Chris was our server ... great personality and fantastic service! The menu has some excellent choices. The Lamb sliders were tasty and the soups were to die for! We will be back again and again.

    Reserved an outside table for 2. Nice garden atmosphere & good quality food, but some service sensibility was lacking; our romantic dinner was abbreviated by some poorly placed tables, heat lamps, and families with small children and dogs. Wait staff was kind and considerate but limited by managerial mediocrity.

    From the moment we arrived Luiz was prepared to make sure that we had a wonderful evening. I'd mentioned it was our anniversary in my initial reservation and he delightfully acknowledged it upon our arrival. A lovely window table in the corner of the main dining room overlooking the terrace and pool awaited us and the food did not disappoint either; including their heirloom tomatoes and beet salads and the lamb chops. To finish, their signature creme brulee, with just the right amount of sea salt was the perfect end to a lovely evening. Will return again for sure!

    Wonderful evening with the help of Rene. The rack of lamb (house specialty) as good as it gets and tuna tartare delicious however the spring roll was average the crème brûlée missed. But the evening was so relaxing it still gets 5 stars no place to put a 4.8 definitely not a 4

    Everything was fantastic! Louis was amazing. He worked hard to get a us a table by the window for our anniversary. Terrific view! Our server Terry was knowledgeable and attentive. Her timing was perfect! Her assistant Jose was all over it. He sensed that our bread had gotten cold and brought new fresh warm bread before we had to ask him. The cuisine was absolutely delicious... can't say enough. Thanks for making our anniversary memorable!
