    The staff seemed harried, we could hear the waiter or chef’s description of the food, so didn’t know what we were eating (we were told the element of surprise was why there was no menu.) We were promised a menu at the end of the meal, but then they didn’t have one. Was told they’d email one, which never came. Our particular waiter spoke very solely & had an accent so we never did know what he was saying - there were 4 of us, and we all felt the same way. This was at least our 5th time dining there & it was a disappointment - had always raved about it before

    We had a great experience dining on the patio at Aubergine. The service was excellent with a great wine pairing suggested by the Som. Just remember to take a light jacket on the patio in Carmel in the summer.

    Aubergine is not inexpensive, to be sure, but it is a dining experience worth every penny. Everything about the evening was perfection. The small, six-table dining room, the decor, the knowledgeable and personable servers and sommelier, the dishes/serving pieces, the presentation of the food, and of course the food itself are all spectacular. I appreciated that many of the dishes were presented by either sous chefs or executive chef, Justin Cogley. It is impossible to choose a favorite dish from the evening but on the night we went (7/12) the amuse bouche was probably the dish that stands out most. It was several bite-sized seafood treats and a broccoli/egg yolk delight that were ridiculously delicious. Aubergine was a wonderful way to celebrate a BIG birthday for me and it did not disappoint. There's a reason why it's a Michelin-rated restaurant. Highly recommend.

    Amazing restaurant!! The service and food was next level, the thing that was missing for me was that it’s in the middle of the hotel so while your eating the hotel guest are going to their rooms and the staff is moving their rooms. It was very odd and definitely took away from the moment and price for me. Definitely overpriced for the atmosphere, that’s something they need to work on overall. Other then that it was a great restaurant

    A great experience from beginning to end - attentive professional service (but friendly, not stuffy) and absolutely delicious + beautiful food. A delight to the senses. I just went the 2nd time last night, and often it's hard for a restaurant to recreate that first discovery moment again, but Aubergine did not dissappoint.

    We did the 8-course tasting (chef surprise) menu with the sommeliers wine pairing and it was truly outstanding. This is a dining experience as opposed to a traditional meal. However, you will not leave hungry. Similar tastings at other high end restaurant often leave you wanting more. This one did not. It covered small liter bites to bigger, hardier ones. The wine pairings were spot on and the (2) desserts at then end capped off a great experience. My wife has a true dairy allergy and the chef(s) did a tremendous job accommodating her. This one of those “experiences” that we would go again. Highly recommended!

    Once you have decided this is not a crazy amount of money to spend on dinner, you won’t be disappointed. Each course (eight or so) is meticulously presented and, more importantly, delicious and showcases the ingredients. Our Sommelier’s wine pairings were perfect and sometimes surprising. Top notch and top prices to go with the service and the food.
