Maison Carlos is a continental restaurant with an emphasis on French and Italian cuisine. Carlos and Lanie Farias opened Maison Carlos in December of 2002. After seven years on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach, the couple made the decision to move their establishment a couple miles south to the El Cid neighborhood. They wanted a smaller restaurant with more of a neighborhood vibe. The new space has only eleven tables and is open for dinner only. Carlos is there every night, seating people, taking orders and is very hands on. Being open only for dinner Carlos spends his days shopping for the restaurant, selecting only the freshest ingredients.

First time here. Nice food, some dishes a bit better than others, but overall quite good. It was Valentines Day and very busy. Service could have been a bit more attentive, and time to get food was a bit long, but it was a busy holiday time.
We will try it again on a non holiday time. All in all a nice experience.

The food was great and the service was excellent, very friendly. It's a small intimate restaurant, quiet enough for you to have a conversation. Prices were reasonable but not inexpensive. We would definitely go back

Maison Carlos is our “go to” restaurant. It is a warm, friendly white tablecloth restaurant with good food. The plate of delicious zucchini chips served at each table is a special touch.

Because we had enjoyed this restaurant in the past we invited 4 friends to join us for dinner on a Saturday evening. The food was salty. The portions were very small and we felt overpriced.

We loved the atmosphere, very comfortable and quiet. Good service. Civilized people. My husband had a pork tenderloin that was very flavorful but definitely overcooked. There was a blob a thick dressing on his salad. It was not tossed. And who ever hear of the French using one of those thick disgusting dressings! My salad did have a nice, flavorful, thin dressing on it and it was tossed. However, several leaves of lettuce had no dressing on them. My risotto tasted like it was made with Velveeta.

Our friends did not go with us because they had been there several times and said the food was very spotty - OK sometimes and bad other times.

As always was great in every way. The veal in particular is outstanding. A wonderful place to go for a casual dinner that has overtones of cooking far superior than most other restaurants.

Maison Carlos is a hidden gem in WPB. In a non descript storefront along Dixie Highway it is easy to miss if you aren’t paying attention. If you are paying attention you will be rewarded by an outstanding dining experience beginning with a warm welcome from Carlos and continuing with a compact menu that offers wonderful dishes across the board. Everyone will find something to love from pizza to veal and my personal favorite, linguini with spicy meatballs, pure perfection. Prices are reasonable and you can bring your own wine if you so desire.

Very interesting choices on the menu, but my wife opted for the yellowtail snapper special and I for the veal special. Both were outstanding. I also tried the crispy pork belly appetizer which was excellent. Finished off with the key lime pie and coffee. I highly recommend Maison Carlos.

It was a rainy Friday night and we went to Maison Carlos!! It was a very enjoyable, pleasant dinner. Service was amazing with handsome Latino men. The owner stopped by the table and welcomed us!! We all had cocktails and the waiter brought a delicious thinly sliced fried zucchini (not at all greasy). Bread as served warm with butter!! Our appetizers were good, but the entrees were excellent, and then dessert,, we all had flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream! It was a delicious dinner!
