Some of the most flavorful food I've had. Vegan/veggie options for most menu items. Really unique food

I was able to make a reservation for 9 people a few days ahead of time and the table was waiting for us when part of our party arrived. The service was slow; we waited 20 minutes before getting water and menus, which was OK since not everyone from our party had arrived yet. However, the service stayed slow; the food took a long time to come out and the waiter also took a long time to bring us our bill. Despite the service, the food was delicious--I had the "Rico" and it was quite flavorful and fresh. Portions weren't too large, either. I would certainly go back!

Very fair priced, healthy, gourmet combined with exotic flair. Gourmet veggie & vegan options, much appreciated. Great drinks, international foodies will appreciate the menu, gourmet or locally fresh ingredients, casual atmosphere. My new favorite place to eat with friends.

It was my first time at Carmo and I enjoyed the entree special I ordered. The flavors were very fresh and the Carribean taste was definitely there. I will be back.

The vegan menu is quite impressive and the cocktails are well made. The portion sizes were a little small I thought but besides that, the place was great.

We went for NYE dinner- you seat yourself and have to go up to the register to order. The menu is varied and they have vegetarian/vegan versions for all entrees. Both the carnivores and vegetarians were happy with their orders. The food itself was delicious- but the portions were small for dinner, and the price was high considering that you have to go up to order and get your own utensils. There were also some inventory issues which I did not expect on a holiday. I think the portions and service are more suited for a casual lunch. Again, the food itself is absolutely delicious- both the meat and veggie versions of the Rico were great as was the tuna sandwich. The Brazilian cheese balls were a hit, and the house salad dressing is phenomenal

The restaurant is small and quaint with a neighborhood atmosphere. This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is good and satisfying. A good place for a quiet dinner or lunch.

Went for a Christmas eve dinner. Food serving was very slow. Already expected for a big charge for Christmas meal but the food was like the business lunch- wanton-chips, chinese noodles and spring roll, soup and orange chicken with vegetables.

We were in NOLA for a few days prior to Christmas, and there was one night when we did not have dinner reservations and were looking for a nearby uncomplicated dinner spot convenient to our hotel in the Arts District. The reviews of Carmo were good, and we were not disappointed! The space is eclectic, orders are taken at the counter, our choices were excellent, and the servings were plentiful. Nothing fancy, just good wholesome food, and we will look for it again when we return to the city.

How nice to find such interesting vegetarian food in NoLa! Take a break from gorging yourself and enjoy the wonderful flavors and friendly service. The Acaraje was fabulous. Lots of gluten-free options too.

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner, we sat outside and it was lovely! The staff was very sweet (even though we came in pretty close to closing time) and accomadating! Great beer and wine selection and the food was outstanding! I will probably start going more often for lunch, seems like a great lunch spot, but when I'm in the mood for a nice light dinner, Carmo will be my place!

Very creative. Lots of vegetarian & vegan dishes - rare in NOLA. Meat-eaters will be happy, too. Friendly, courteous service.

The restaurant is small and cozy. The staff was very friendly. The food preparation area is visible from the main dining area and I noticed food being prepared from scratch. We had the Broken Noodle Salad, Plantain Patty with Pulled Pork (vegan and vegetarian versions of "pulled pork" are also available) and Plain Baquette Bread with Havarti Cheese. All dishes were excellent. This is definitely not your standard steak and seafood restaurant. If like vegetarian dishes and appreciate culinary creativity with a tropical twist, then Carmo is for you.

Our group loved the flexibility of the menu: nearly every item had options for vegan, vegetarian, or meat/fish. One member of our party was a strict vegetarian, and so Carmo was a treasure (especially in New Orleans, where vegetarian cuisine can be hard to find). Delicious and beautifully prepared food, great cocktails, and everything VERY reasonably priced!

We all tried different things from the menu and enjoyed all the choices. The menu is very unique and enticing and all of the dishes surpassed our expectations. My favorite was the salad with quinoa and black beans- very flavorful with a little kick to it. We had a great time.

This was one of the best stops on our road trip. The food was fantastic with a great vegan menu as well as yummy drinks to choose from. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly. If I ever visit New Orleans again this will be my first stop!
