We went for a birthday celebration, not realizing that Tuesday is the busiest day of the week for them because they offer a prime rib special. We had a reservation at 6:15 and there were no good tables left so that was a little disappointing. We didn’t order the special but the regular prime rib because we don’t like garlic mashed potatoes. The food was really good and so was the service. If you want a quiet dinner and don’t want the special, pick a night other than a Tuesday. Over the years they’ve have a tendency to let the physical part of that building go, the floor tiles are broken in the lobby which makes it hard when you bring someone for their 98th birthday. Other than that, I’d highly recommend it.
It was our 20 year anniversary. We went there because we had our rehearsal dinner there. Everything was amazing . Our server was incredible. And our special dessert was an great surprise. Thank you!!!!
We haven't gone to Carver's in a number of years and were very pleased to find that the quality of the food was as excellent as ever, as was the service. We were particularly pleased with our server. He was friendly, patient, and attentive. Unfortunately, I did not learn his name to give him direct credit. We will be sure to visit again sooner rather than later.
Took my Wife for her Birthday with a couple friends for a 7:30 Appt. We were seated at 7:29 to a very nice table. The atmosphere was great and the music coming from the bar from a live 80`s band was awesome ! My wife had the Chicago cut Ribeye and I had the Chili cut and I have to say... they were some of the best steaks we have ever had !! The only down thing we found about the whole night was the service was a little slow.
We will be back again !
We have dined here several times and rhink the food is delicious and definitely an excellent value. My only complaint it that we always feel rushed by the waitstaff. They definitely want to turn the tables quickly.
I would have no problem recommending Carvers to a friend, but I would want them to know what they were getting into. The restaurant is billed and priced as a special occasion restaurant, and that's why I chose it. However, the price is not justified by the ambiance, service, and quality of the food. The restaurant was LOUD - to the point where my tablemates and I could not have a conversation. The food was fine, but overpriced for what it was. The service was pretty good although there were a few times that the waitress walked away while we were trying to speak to her (possibly because of how noisy it was).
Carvers is the absolute answer for the best steak or chop meal in San Diego. The Prime Rib is some of the best I've had anywhere. Service is outstanding and the price is reasonable considering the quality and size of the plate.
A romantic get-away for my wife and I. Go on a weekday evening just you and your wife, or when less busy, and enjoy the early bird menu. Excellent food and excellent service. Talked to "Mike" (owner) and he had several "hints" for dining at his place or any restuarant to achieve satisfaction on food and service. Like, don't go out in large groups on Mothers Day and expect everything to work out great. Too busy.
We ordered "Filet" and "prime rib" and they were both outstanding. Great atmosphere.
I think it is a wonderful place to enjoy a very good meal with a quiet atmosphere and excellent service.
Have eaten there before. Food was not as good. Salad was quite a bit smaller. Pork chop was dry, tough and bland for $32. Best part of the meal was the potato.
We understand that it was mother’s day but with a reservation at an expensive restaurant you would hope you wouldn’t be herded to a small room with too many tables & noise to really enjoy the time. The rest of the restaurant was pretty empty. Service was spotty and the food was flavorless and didn’t seem to be fresh. We’ve been coming here for years but the last couple of times have been unfortunate. This trip was to see if it was a bad night or how the restaurant is now. Looks like this is the new norm so we will not be back.
It was pretty busy for dinner day before Mother’s Day. The food wasn’t as good as it’s been in the past. My guess is it was because of how busy it was.
Our reservation was at six o’clock. Once seated we realized the room was too noisy. We requested a different table in another room. We were told that all the tables were spoken for and they could not move us. When the salads came the requested wedge was covered in bacon cheese and dressing. The salad had been requested with no dressing and no bacon and had to be returned. The bottle of wine we asked for was not available. All in all a disappointing evening. We will not return.
We were celebrating Mother’s Day, a day early with a party of 6. We were in a small room right off the front door with 8 other tables. The noise level in that room was so bad we couldn’t even hear our own conversation let alone when the waiter was talking to us. If we were to go back I would be sure not to be put in that room. The food was good but the noise level distracted all of us from the food.
Cheers to the chef for a fabulous dinner for 9 finicky eaters! Salads chilled and fresh, Chicken Cordon Bleu was a bit hit!
Carvers is such a cozy place! The food is delicious and the service, delightful. We'll be back!
Only one place for prime rib in north county. Carvers.
Always great food. It’s a lovely restaurant. We go there often and the food is consistently good.
There 9 of us for dinner. All excellent meals. Service was excellent.
Consistently good, and one of the few reliable restaurants in this area that is inhabited almost exclusively by retirees.
Server was great, unfortunately food not as good as expected. Shrimp over cooked and tough. Caesar Salad dressing lemon taste was off. Prime rib was good.
Excellent food, went twice in the same week. both times food was amazing.
Had the same server each time, she was also amazing. Excellent customer service.
Our first time but definitely not our last. Food was excellent, at osphere warm and inviting. Our Waitress was exceptional! Personable, knowledgeable, so fun to talk with. She really know her menu both bar and food. See you again soon.
Our Server, Melanie, was exceptional. Her attention to detail, politeness, serving etiquette were perfection. The meal was served at the perfect temperature and was comparable to any of the higher end stakes houses around the world. Wine options were terrific. Definitely a restaurant we would return to.
Overall a great experience with delicious food at a reasonable price. The only downside is that the restaurant is in seriously need of updating. The decorations and furnishings are dated and the carpets need to be removed.
I like this place for the ambiance but the steaks are just good not great.
Food was excellent, wait staff was amazing. I'll definitely be back.
Excellent lunch! Great food, staff and service. Once again a great experience!
The food is good at Carvers and we had excellent service Sunday night. The place itself, however, is just sad and tired. I really wish they would update their foyer with fresher seating and decor. And the bathroom is terrible. The freshener they use smells awful and it's strong enough to permeate the whole entrance of the place. Once you get past that though, it's better and worth it. The window in the back is wonderful creating a very open and spacious feeling. For a neighborhood steak place, the food is good, probably a little expensive for what it is but still good. We go there for good food in a relaxed environment.
Excellent service and excellent food. Thank you.
Service was good, food was fair, crab cakes doughy, lettuce wilted (looked like it sat out on plates for several hours in hot kitchen. Too much dressing on wedge salad, filet somewhat gristly
Great food. Great service.
Again, an excellent lunch! Great service and great food! Psstt... here is a delicious secret - try the garlic bread with peppercorn sauce! WoW-Weee!
Great quality and service. Meals came out as advertised.
We love Carvers and have been going here for over 20 years. This last time we went filets weren’t as good and weren’t prepared to the temperatures ordered. We still love this place and will continue to go.
Was seated prior to the reservation time. Great service and food was great.
Our dinner was delicious and our server was excellent!
Great service by Ashley. Unfortunately a table of six gentleman were seated right next to us who were very loud. So loud that my friend and I could barely hear each other! That was my major complaint.
Excellent food and service. Very enjoyable evening.
Prime rib was not med-rare as requested. They quickly exchanged it. We split a wedge salad w/blue chese dressing-great.
