This is one of those fine dining restaurants ala The French Laundry with as many waiters as patrons. The food is extremely creative. There is a set 8 course meal nightly. We really enjoyed every course, but especially the sea urchin. Love the location in LAuberge de Carmel.
One of our ten best meals EVER!!! The multi-course dining experience is exquisite, unique and sensational. Add the perfect wine pairing carefully orchestrated with the kitchen and solmaliers is exceptional but especially the insights on origin and character of each wine with an explanation of how the wine compliments the food course...
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. The food was exquisite, the service was exceptional: everything was excellent. We got sat directly in front of the kitchen, which was a bummer (for a 2000 dollar meal for two you would think they would give us a great seat) but, someone had to be the unlucky ones! Everything was truly wonderful and we had a great experience!
The pacing of the tasting menu was a little hurried.
Beautifully presented and delicious Northern California seasonal specialities.
Absolutely incredible. Well worth the money. The experience was top notch. Our waiter was beyond great. Got to meet the chef! Never had a better meal. Thank you!
We went to this restaurant for our honeymoon. It was very romantic and the service was great. We were pleased that the meal lasted over two hours. We had great conversation and enjoyed our time there.
This was an outstanding culinary experience. No doubt this should be a Michelin star restaurant. I hope Michelin expands their region to include Carmel! Not easy on the wallet, but worth every penny from our perspective. Compliments to the Chef on an amazing meal.
Perfect in every way. Though there are 8 courses, courses are still generous but you do not leave feeling uncomfortably stuffed. That is because the food is creative, seafood based and so full of flavors and textures.
We attended the New Year Eve six-course meal this past year. It was incredibly disappointing. The food was sub par. The wine pairings were odd. The ambiance was lacking. I wouldn't recommend.
