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.

                                                            From start to finish , it was a great experience and very consistent with past visits. The food was delicious, the servers were very attentive and Carlos the owner ever present and personable. It is a wonderful neighborhood gem and one of our favorite go to’s. If you’re coming from Palm Beach, it’s worth the trip “over the bridge” you won’t be disappointed!

                                                            Maison Carlos is a small restaurant and Friday it was quite busy. The food was excellent. The appetizer and entrees were a bit slow to arrive but based on the fact that it was so busy I guess that should be expected.

                                                            This is a small Restuarant that peeked our curiosity. We have visited twice because the food was excellent. I eat well at home so when we go out it has to be better then home. Our waiter was a real gentleman, pardon me for not remembering his name, when you go you will know exactly what I mean. We have eaten in some of the finest Restuarant in NYC and South Florida, this is a gem.

                                                            Food fine. Service painfully slow. 1/2 hour plus between salad and entree with no unusual orders. Waiter laughed off complaint. Our first visit in two years. Probably won’t return. Really like Carlos, but,
