Carver's is one of our favorite restaurants. Food is consistently great, service is excellent, and it's a wonderful place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We had an especially memorable meal this past Saturday. The Prime Rib was so tender, it almost melts in your mouth. You really need to try the Sherried Mushrooms if you haven't yet as they have such a lovely, delicate sauce and really compliment any dish, but especially prime rib or steak. I have to mention that Wes was our server, and this was the best service we've ever had ! He was very attentive and a real pro at keeping our water glasses filled, plates cleared away, etc. Hope he gets the commendation he deserves for excellent service!

My friend and I had lunch in the main dining room on a Wednesday at 11:30. We had a delicious soup, and I had an outstanding prime rib dish from the lunch menu. It was very quiet, but got a little noisier when a large group arrived in a neighboring room. The staff kept the door open. I don't know if that is normal procedure. Carver's has a nice garden room adjacent to the main dining room that not everyone knows about. It's a lot brighter than the dining room.

Carver’s food is amazing! I had the early bird prime rib dinner and it was perfect. The prime rib has great flavor and is so tender. Definitely one of my favorite places to eat!

I love the 6 oz. filet and it didn’t disappoint. However, the au grautin potatoes were not that good. I won’t order that again.
We came down from Temecula for this meal, and were there for a couple of hours. Our waitress never came back after she left the bills with us. We were all thirsty, but never received water refills. I have never experienced this before at this restaurant, so was disappointed.

This is a really good restaurant a bit of an older crowd but the food is good. I made reservations that weren't honored I asked for a table and they didn't have anything for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Disappointing when you ask for something and you don't get it. A little while later they said a table was available sent with actually found a booth that met our needs. This is a good restaurant with good food

Using the Open Table app got us on a reservation time, the right table for five and an acknowledgement that we were all set for our dinner.
Carver's is a restaurant we enjoy having our special dinner meals from time to time. The service is attentive and personable, the food comes out appropriately and timely, and us always very tasty. My wife's steak was not quite done enough for her liking, but they took it back and finished it out to her satisfaction.
We recommend Carver's for North County San Diego residents and visitors.

This is our 3rd time having dinner there.

The following happened the last two times.

1) The server did remove the first wine glass. I had a white wine before dinner, the server poured the red wine into the same glass. That's a no no. We like to enjoy our wine in a different glass, so we can appreciate it, especially how much wines are marked up, not just with you, but other restaurants as well.

2) I had requested the entree to be served 5 to 10 minutes after the appetizer was finished, it was within one minute. No time to relax and enjoy conversation. We felt rushed.

Was the reason to serve us so fast was to get us out and serve more guest? Is there a guest quota?

My wife and I eat out often and wanted to give Carvers another chance to redeem.

I am so very sorry.

I have been coming to Carvers for years and it never disappoints. They have the best Happy Hour value and the lunches and dinners are so good and reasonably priced. It is a great place for a date night, family outing or special event. Love this place.
