Our order came out in a weird order. We ordered drinks, appetizers and food at the same time. We got our food first, then drinks, then appetizers. Other than that everything was good.
The service was perfect, as always. Speciality drinks were delicious. It's hard to come here without getting the Rico, which is a great mix of flavors, although we have had the whole fish special which was wonderful too. The flatbread is simple, but yummy and perfect to share.
Food here is AMAZING!!!!! It’s very hard to find gluten free/ vegan food on my New Orleans trip and this place exceeded my expectations! My host was so kind and helpful, he was eager to point out all the gluten/dairy free options. And the amazing drink I got, omg!! I’m still recalling how great it tasted. I ordered the “Rico” with vegan cheese. I will be coming back here for sure!!
Great place for ceviche as well as other seafood dishes & vegetarian options.
Good service & lots of space too!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! Such tasty options—definitely one of my new go to restaurants for Vegan dining. Server was super helpful with recommendations and everything was delicious! The desserts were great as well. Can’t wait to go back!
We showed up for our reservation and the restaurant had new hours and was closed. We 100% understand limited hours due to COVID-19, but any other restaurant when they needed to close they called and notified us. We even confirmed the reservation through Open Table and still no notification that their hours were changed and our reservation was cancelled. Very rude and unprofessional.
Regulars who live in the neighborhood-
We love Carmo 😃
We shared the ceviche to start with La Paloma to drink, which was really a delicious drink. The Ceviche was wonderful the fish was fresh and tasty. She had the curry with Tofu and I had the Poke bowl. Each dish was great, we finished with the Kailua chocolate cake and strawberry sherbet. Not much Kailua flavor but it was a nice finisher.
Lots of vegan options
Great food and great service. Will definitely be coming back.
We have been to Carlo several times before. We really like it ...creative drinks and good food
The drinks were excellent and the dishes even better. The cauliflower hummus likely had the best roasted cauliflower we’ve ever had. Service was great! Simply can’t go wrong dining here.
Went for coolinary! Definitely had some great options which made it hard to decide. Everything I got was amazing
I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was! My initial impression was vegetarian and vegan only. They have dishes with all options to satisfy every food lifestyle. I'm definitely going back to try other dishes.
We made our reservation on Open Table for lunch on Saturday. When we got there, the door was locked and the lights were off. How is it that Carmo offers reservations when it’s closed?
We apologize for the inconvenience. We've never offered reservations at lunch, and are trying to figure out who accessed our account and changed it.
Such amazing Brazilian and tropical dishes! The acsraje was a rich blend of peanut sauce and shrimp over salad, cooked down with real Brazilian fresh granola juice. I'll be back!!
excellent Caribbean inspired food. cocktails are also excellent
The good was AMAZING. We ate and drank what was suggested by our server - and WOW! Cant wait to go back!
It was the last weekend of Mardi Gras- therefore a big bit of crazy, as one of the parades went right past the restaurant. The food and the server were excellent and everything came out from the kitchen in a timely fashion. The only problem was that the restaurant was allowing parade goers to use their bathrooms & this meant patrons had to wait 25-35 minutes to use the bathroom. Just enough time for your dinner to get ice cold! Need for better planning by restaurant
We weren't allowing all parade goers to use the restrooms, we required that people must purchase food or drink in order to use the restroom. It just happened that there were several thousand people on the streets and the number of people who chose to hang out at the bar was substantial. Had we just opened it up to the public, it would have been far far worse.
Did not honor reservation
We honor ALL reservations. We were fully booked and did have a table that evening that stayed for 3 hours which held up the reservation for 15-20 minutes, the party was informed of that and they decided to go to another restaurant. Unfortunately, sometimes there are situations beyond our control, it is unfortunate and we do everything possible to make it up. Had this party have waited for 15 minutes, they would have found that out.
Awesome food and amazing gluten-free options!
Good interesting food and good service.
This was a meal we will always remember. Brilliant execution of all types of flavors, savory, sweet and multi textured
Yum***. I had Rico and my husband had an unusual Brazilian flatbread that all kinds of ingredients that really worked to make
It a special experience
Came to Carmo for my birthday and had family style meal with friends. The service was fantastic and the food matched! It was a very chill atmosphere. I definitely plan to go back!
Drink order was incorrect, food was left standing in our view for quite a while and only served when asked. Reservation indicated three special occasions and until I said something no recognition happened. Overall it was a VERY disappointing meal. I was in tears at the end to see how all of my guests felt.
Food was great! Different menu but food was outstanding!
Every single dish we ordered (4 people, 6-8 dishes) was DELICIOUS but service was lacking so that it really lessened our enjoyment. They were easily able to accommodate 1 persons dietary restriction but we had to ask for utensils. And ask for napkins. And ask for drinks. And ask for check.... food was so good we will give it another try though.
I visited Carmo at the recommendation of a friend who lives in NOLA. I was looking for a place outside the FQ and this was perfect! Great, funky & fun space & atmosphere and amazing food! Eclectic and flavorful, everything was delicious! The Kottu was slightly spicy and savory at the same time, and the portion was huge. I also had the vegetable curry which was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. My friends all loved their entrees as well. Our server Lita was helpful and friendly and made the experience even more enjoyable. Carmo is definitely on my list to return to next time I’m in NOLA!
The food was excellent! We both eat Gluten Free due to allergies and had no issues at all! First table we were seated at was next to a VERY noisy party and the staff was quite gracious about moving us to a more quiet table. Loved it-will be back!
Amazing experience and great service . I really like this place.
Like you're in someone's kitchen - a very helpful staff makes dining here a pleasure - plus the sustainable cuisine is so delicious!
Variety of food options- all very delicious. I recommend the Rico, Fish Collar, Ceviche, and banquettes (so, the whole menu really). Very comfortable atmosphere with reading room and movie theater in the back. Good for large groups or date night.
Delicious food! The Coolinary menu is generous and has good variety. Service was a bit slow. The front part of the dining area was too warm to be fully comfortable.
Boat to table, small catch fish perfectly cooked. Good service. People seemed happy to be working there. Will go back. Highly recommend.
Carmo is a wonderful dining experience with lots of vegan options. Highly recommend!
A wonderful surprise! When our plans changed at the last minute and we wanted something light, we tried Carmo, close by and open when we needed. It was a fantastic early dinner with wonderful dishes, superb drinks, and excellent service. Everyone there was pleasant and welcoming; clearly service was only seconds away yet very mindful of our conversation. The weather was way too hot to try a few of the amazing-sounding dishes, so can’t wait to go back when it cools down a bit outside to try more of the menu. A nice change from the usual wonderful but more expected local fare.
Great vegetarian food from different parts of the world.
Love this place! Amazing food and atmosphere.
Our group of 7 had a great meal and great service from Leida! We enjoyed the many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options and modifications available. Everything was so good!
We were in New Orleans on business and went to Carmo two nights in a row. Excellent food. Great service by Emma on the second night.
