This place is a find! The window seats were very picturesque and comfortable. The meat was very high quality and the young server was exceptional. Water glasses always filled, plates cleared, impeccable! The only issue we had was the music was a little too loud from the lounge but we will definitely return.

This is the second time at Carvers. It is a hidden gem. We live in Carlsbad and it is way out of the way. But, it is well work the drive. Classy, elegant, excellent service and better steaks than the best steak houses in town.

Food was good, server was nice, but my 7 PM reservation for my husband‘s 60th birthday dinner on a Tuesday night was a disaster! We did not get seated until 7:20, and when they finally seat us (without any ‘sorry you had to wait’) we were seated in an annex where it was very cold, and so loud that we could barely hear one another. I would hope that they would give priority to people who had made reservations and noted that it was for a special vacation. If I had not told the server that it was my husband‘s birthday I’m fairly positive no one at the whole restaurant would have acknowledged it. Sad. The hostesses seemed not to care at all. I guess the lesson learned is to not go there for a special occasion, which is a bummer because that is the main reason I would be going to this restaurant!

Carver's is our go to restaurant in this area. The food is consistently high quality and very delicious. We have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The service is also usually outstanding.

Be sure to make reservations if you are going on Tuesdays since they have the special steak deal. The food and service is very good. If you have room for dessert, try their Gooey Brownie a la Mode.

Good food, good atmosphere, service was slow. Took a while to get drinks and bread was served with appetizers instead of right after being seated.

The food just isn’t very good, it’s pretty bland. The prime rib is tasteless. This restaurant used to be really good but not any longer.

Our waitress was fantastic. Food was good. Price for the food was good value compared.to other top steakhouses...but two drinks more than made up that difference. Fine night out all around.

We had a fabulous dinner with wonderful service! It was our first time at Carver’s and we weren’t disappointed! My husband had the ribeye that was cooked perfectly! I had the salmon! We both had enough for a second dinner at home! And the bread pudding for the dessert was to die for!

My husband and I celebrated our 40th Anniversary. The Hotel we stayed at recommended Carver's.
My only complaint is that my filet mignon I requested was over cooked! I requested it to be medium. My husband also mentioned that it looked over cooked. I elected to eat it anyway. I should have sent it back, hence the 4 star rating.. I have requested it cooked that way elsewhere and it melted like butter. Other than that I / We are greatful Carver's was recommended. I would go back next time we are in area.

Our reservation was for 845p.m. I recommend a much earlier time for although it shows 11 p.m. closing time the restaurant closes earlier. By this I mean the service was slow. The wait staff never noticed that my ice tea needed refilling until I placed it on the edge of the table. We ordered a tuna stack as an appetizer but was served up the Cajun shrimp instead. The waitress left and I said this is not what we ordered. We had to wave the waitress down and since she hadn't taken our order she said she read it wrong. The Cajun shrimp smelled very good. I'm sorry it was not recommended to us instead of the tuna stack which was okay but I've had it better elsewhere. A loaf of brown bread was served with the appetizer but the bread was not soft and the butter was margarine not real butter. When the meal arrived my 8 oz. filet mignon was served up medium instead of medium well. We were not asked how the food was but when the waitress finally noticed my ice tea glass was hugging the edge of the table I told her my steak was under done. My husband seemed happy with the prime rib but not sure that he was ever asked if he wanted another beer or if he needed anything else. I can get much better service and food at the Red Fox room or even at Black Angus. I doubt I'll be back. Too far to drive for the mediocre meal.

We always have an excellent experience when we go to Carvers. The early bird special is a good deal- around $20 more or less for bread, salad or soup and main meal that never disappoints. Love the fireplace and the wood paneled walls. Mostly adults, so screaming kids are a rarity.

The service was fine until our food was brought to the table. After that everything went downhill fast. Our waiter never came back to ask us if we needed anything. I had to stop a bus person to ask for our drinks to be refilled. After the last person in our party finished eating, it was over 15 minutes before I finally got up and approached the hostess about the problem and I asked to see the manager. The manager never came to the table but a busboy showed up to clear the table. The waiter finally came to deliver the bill (no discount). As we were leaving the hostess asked if everything was okay. I told her the manager never came. She got the manager who then offered me a $50 gift card. Too little to late. I am never going back.

We had a group of 10 and one waitress. She was awesome! Took our orders fast, got us our drinks, continually made sure our drinks were full, got our food out fast and gave us all separate checks which were right! Some of our people had never been there but said they’d be back.

A nice old school steakhouse. Tucked back in a corner of shopping center by itself. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly but not overly. My wife and I each had one of the specials which where great and split an appetizer and that turned out to be plenty of food, we had to pass on desert.
