    Unbelievably great food and service. You can’t go wrong with this restaurant. Kurt Grasing must be one of the best chefs and restaurant owners in the world.

    At $368 (incl.tip) I was a little disappointed. The sea bass was the special and it was a bit rubbery, not great at all. The beet salad would rank a distant 3rd when I compare it to Cella and The Pocket. The person picking up the plates was a bit rough. Overall the service was fine. Food was underwhelming. Not going back for awhile.

    The bread with olives disappointed us. The prawn cocktail was good and shrimp were large. The special was a halibut which was cooked and served perfectly. My wife really enjoed that. I had the Ribeye and it was spectacular. Perfectly cooked topped with the blue cheese butter. The drinks were tasty as were the roasted Brussels sprouts. The two areas for improvement were our server Hadi was not experienced and was so forgetful and slow. Secondly or table was crammed on the side and felt like the two person table was jammed in to add extra seating. Overall we loved the food and will come back.

    Love Grasing’s. It’s been our ‘go to’ for Christmas and our Anniversary for several years. First you are greeted with a genuine welcome. Knowledgeable, professional wait staff. The food is innovative and simply Divine.

    We found this to be a charming restaurant in a good part of Carmel by the sea. The drinks were mediocre. The service was excellent. The food was good, but the desserts were lacking entirely. We would eat there again.

    Great food and an amazing wine offering. The food was delivered very quickly after we ordered. Sadly, our server seemed to forget about us two or three times. Maybe it was our table location??

    We have waited several years to visit Grazings. We just knew it was going to be ‘our kind of restaurant’! Extremely disappointed by the crowded seating, food not anything special, ordered dessert from the menu (“Out of that tonight”)!! Really!! Dog by our table, etc. probably don’t want to hear any more. Won’t be back!

    There were lots of tables crammed into a little space. This was a really high-end place, but it wasn't what I was looking for for this occasion. It was too fancy for a nice meal out with a friend. But since we had never been to Carmel before, it looked like it would be a fun choice. It was good for a date night, not the best for a weekend with friends.
