The food was perfectly executed. Their wine list is impressive.
My wife and daughter and I celebrated Mother's Day here. We had never been before. What a superb dinner! We had cocktails, wine, salads and three different and excellent entrees, and finished with bananas foster, prepared tableside. Our server was outstanding and made our delicious meal just perfect! We will definitely return to Anton and Michel.
This was combination 50th Wedding Anniversary and Mothers Day brunch. Beautiful setting, quiet with background music, multiple delicious choices on menu, attentive staff, peaceful and not rushed. This was the perfect spot to be for us. It appeared quite elegant and was very comfortable at the same time. The food was attractively serviced and delicious. The service was excellent. Highly recommended.
Our meal was delicious but the usual serene ambiance we've experienced in prior visits was not available on this particular evening. A group of guests seated at the opposite end of our room opted to speak & 'party' so loudly that for the majority of our 2 hour dining experience, my husband & I couldn't hear one another.
Our waiter was very nice. And the food, as usual, excellent but we're not sure we'll return any time soon.
The food was disappointing (especially considering pricing) we would not return.
Wonderful date night with excellent service provided by Renee!!!
I felt like there was the appearance of a fancy restaurant, but the food and the service didn't match. The menu was very ordinary and the food was just adequate. I would not go back.
Our waiter and staff were top drawer! My husband and I were transfixed by the wonderful pool view and brick courtyard outside. The food was delicious and the wines were fantastic. Prices were reasonable paired with how much fancy fun we enjoyed!
Bart always provide excellent customer service👍
We look forward to seeing him again!
Luiz has very good customer service and warm welcome that keep my family to go back there again and again!
The food was not memorable. I had a salad that wasn't crisp which was served with way too much dressing. The onion soup was marginal.
Lunch was more than we could ask! Super place and super service!! Amazing food!
Amazing food, excellent service perfect place for casual or romantic dinner
Very good food. Service was excellent. Set us too close to other tables when not busy. A little high $25 corkage fee. Thoroughly loved the eve.
We visit Carmel 2-3 times/year and were celebrating my birthday. Everything ran like clockwork, we were greeted/seated right away, the host acknowledged my birthday. Staff was excellent, our steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. All in all a great meal and made my birthday a special experience. We will be back.
We had our reservation for at least a month,but were seared right adjacent to the rear patio door. It was the very windy day and they kept using the door and we were very uncomfortable..we ordered the abalone, which was fairly priced, but had the black outer layer left on which tasted awful and was like eating a piece of over cooked tire. Who would think this could happen in such a nice restaurant! We will return as we have had many nice evenings there!
Last minute reservation for a Birthday Dinner. More than accommodating. Made the reservation for 5 pm and we were the only couple in the place. But about 5:30pm, the restaurant began filling up. The menu was excellent and had a hard time deciding (which is always a good thing). The lamb chops were to die for; however the cashew pesto was an acquired taste. But the banana foster was superb. They make it right in front of you. I will definitely return.
The table behind us was exceptionally loud.
Fabulous food and service was amazing😊
This has to be the best restaurant in Carmel. We were there for dinner and were greeted by the Maître D'Hotel Luiz Ferreira. What a wonderful person and very personable and professional. He led us to the table and told us the specials of the evening. He then left us alone to make our choices, The restaurant is next to a small courtyard and has a very nice ambiance and quiet. Our server for the evening was Carmella and she too was outstanding. The food was excellent with a varied menu. The wine list is excellent and one thing we in particular liked is that they have a large of half bottles so my wife had her white and I had a red. All restaurants should do this. Very memorable evening and one we will not soon forget. Thank you Luiz for making it so special.
Was a very nice place to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The dinner for two was great.
Fairly casual dining atmosphere and service, but among the best Carmel has to offer. Our food was very good. There are special desserts offered, but we chose a simple lemon tart that was light after the substantial meal. Nice wine list. The window tables offer a view of a fountain courtyard. The bar is a more intimate, classy vibe.
Food is excellent and the wait staff quite attentive. Will be back again.
Amazing meal. The wait staff was incredibly attentive. The table side Caesar salad was made to order and absolutely incredible! You know it’s good when you think, “I couldn’t have made it better myself!” The salmon and the rainbow trout and sides were both fantastic. Dinner was a bit pricey, but I felt it was worth it due to the attention and care given by the wait staff. Food was fantastic and wait staff was impeccable!!! 👍👍👍
This place is amazing! The drinks were great and the food was amazing! The service was phenomenal. We had a great waiter who was very upbeat and nice! I would highly recommend the sunset dinner course, it was fantastic especially for the price!
Server was fantastic.
Nice wine selection
Anton and Michel is a bit old-fashioned but in a good way. Attentive service throughout paired with fairly classic preparations, perhaps most notably the flambeed desserts (crepes suzettes, cherries jubilee, bananas Foster). The appetizer options included lobster ravioli that was exceptionally good. The rack of lamb is always a favorite but came cooked medium rather than "on the rare side of medium rare" as requested. That was really the only off-note of the evening other than some awkwardness about using the Open Table certificate. At first they declined to honor it until the new method -- a MasterCard gift certificate -- was pointed out. There should be no problem about this going forward.
Lovely, European style service, delicious food. Accommodated our vegetarian needs nicely! Great wine list and serene views of the outside patio. A most memorable meal and highly recommended!
The atmosphere was very nice. It wasn’t crowded for lunch. My special swordfish was delicious, but my husband’s Angus beef sandwich was tough, grisly & chewy. Server & manager attentive. Creme brûlée was tasty.
Our experience was very mixed - ahi poke was good, rack of lamb excellent, BUT paella was terrible!! it consisted of a large heap of overcooked, tasteless rice decorated with a few overcooked shrimp and clams. All frozen and zapped? not sure...
Espresso also terrible
Room is pleasant, atmosphere unnecessarily formal
Dreading my upcoming birthday I was in search for a nice restaurant to make my birthday memorable. What I loved the most was the wine list which included a variety of imported wines. The menu had something for all of us, from a wonderful salmon to the savory paella. The incredible service, from the host and our server, left me wanting to go back. I loved the ambiance perfect for a romantic date.
Not bad at all - professional staff, and the filet and Kobe short ribs were excellent. Just not good enough to warrant 4 to 5 star reviews in Carmel.
First time last night. Wonderful all around! Will be back for sure.
We have but one anniversary a year, so choosing a restaurant for a special occasion is a big deal. We decided to try Anton & Michel in Carmel. The reservation was made on OpenTable with the anniversary noted in the reservation form. Arriving, we were pleased to see a modern, comfy remodel of what used to be a dated decor. We were a bit surprised that the hostess did not mention our anniversary, nor did the server. It's nice for us to have the venue acknowledge our event. When ordering wine, the server did not know specifics about the wine we were considering, and did not get a more knowledgeable wine expert to assist us. We finished our entire meal without the server asking how the wine, salad, or two appetizers were. She only came by our table to silently refill our wine glasses. The experience was very disappointing. It wasn't that busy on a Monday night, with only about a third of the restaurant occupied.. The beet salad was mediocre, lacking a flavorful dressing and the beets presented absolutely plain on the plate. The ravioli and risotto were great.
A few years ago we frequently dined @ Anton & Michel. For no memorable reason, we stopped. We returned Sunday night with a dear friend from Napa who had recently lost his wife. We wanted to take him to a very special place. We couldn't have made a better choice. The food was spectacular but was out-shined by the service. Even though we had not been in the restaurant for several years, the hostess Tiffany recognised us and made us feel completely at home. Nick was our server. He was there when we needed him and not there as appropriate. He has a very enjoyable, bright personality. His service was impeccable. We look forward to soon returning to Anton & Michel.
This was not my first visit. I have enjoyed a couple of group dinner functions here. This was my first lunch visit, and I found everything perfect. The patio view was delightful. The dining room was cosy, despite the chilly weather outside. Great service.
We had a lovely evening. The Maitre d was most welcoming and gracious. We had a table overlooking the fountain and garden, away from the main dining area so it was quiet and felt very private. The waiter was also gracious and extremely knowledgeable about all the dishes. We split the beet salad, and then had the rack of lamb and filet - both perfectly done with incredible sauces and vegetables. We finished the meal with the Cherries Jubilee as a special treat for my husband’s birthday. I also brought a special bottle of wine and they explained that if we purchased another bottle of wine, the $25 corkage fee would be waived. So we ordered a split of the Roerderer champagne for $30 and had that with our first course.
All and all it was a perfect experience for a very special occasion.
Anton & Michel is lovely. The host was charming. The setting is so pretty - muted colors & soft lighting. The food was very tasty and well prepared.
Outstanding food, people and ambiance. Best restaurant in Carmel. Highly recommend.
