The service was very good as our waiter was attentive and friendly. The drinks were excellent and served quickly. Was a bit surprised that no bread was served at the table, I expected it at a restaurant like this one. The Lobster Bisque was excellent!!! My wife had the stuffed shrimp, it was really good and the risotto was solid. I had the filet, which was over cooked. The cheesecake and tiramisu for dessert was perfect. The service charge for using a card was unnecessary and a bit disappointing.

We always went here before we moved. After 4 years it’s like we never left. Food and service was outstanding. Will always want to visit when in the area.

The place is nice , table was good .
I ordered the special-Porterhouse cooked rare, they brought me a skirt steak. So my wife ate her filet alone whilst I waited for the correct plate. There was no offer of a complimentary desert for the screwup . If I was the waiter , a drink or a desert on the house would have been an appropriate thing to do . Waitress offered nothing. It reflected in the gratuity.

Have enjoyed the carriage house in the past. This visit, understaffed at the bar and restaurant. Staff pleasant and trying but not enough of them. Big party upstairs so that may have been why but not an excuse. Bar is in need of some attention, looking a bit tired for such a nice place otherwise. Due to having only one bar tender the bar top was being cleaned, sticky and kind of gross to be honest.
Food was good, had the loaded nachos which we thought tasted great. Dinners were good as well. May go back at some point to try again, not sure.

First visit in our new neighborhood. I've been passing the place for a few months and gave it a try. What a wonderful surprise. Large roomy bar. Comfortable tables and warm and cozy atmosphere. Staff is very helpful and attentive. food choices are wonderful. Even at the peak dinner rush food was hot and delicious. A real Jem in Babylon. We will be back for sure.

It's the old "bait & switch". 2 couples traveled +30 minutes to a restaurant with 7pm reservations made on Open Table a week earlier for RESTAURANT WEEK, only to be told that they don't honor restaurant week menus on Saturday night after 6pm. This was VERY disappointing. The other couple went to their web site earlier to view their "restaurant week" menu and was looking forward to a nice dining experience. There was NEVER any mention of dining restrictions. Big mistake, huge! I thought the purpose of this event was to entice future dining at their establishment.
They failed miserably.

We made the reservations almost a week in advance to make it for the last day of restaurant week. Reservation was at 5:30 because the website menu stated it ended at 6pm seating only to arrive and the waiter tell us the restaurant week menu ended at 530 I showed him THEIR website and menu but he wouldn’t accommodate. Very poor customer service on that issue. It’s the only reason we chose the carriage house. We don’t live close. Couldn’t leave because it was for someone’s birthday but I will not go back.

Definitely a short menu. Charged some ridiculous fee for credit card use. All these restaurants are scamming on that and don’t really tell you. You have to read the menu like a law document!!! Server Melissa was good. Food was okay to good.

It took the server 20 mins before anyone came over to take our drink order. We ordered a salad, when it came, we had no cutlery. It took awhile to get anyone’s attention to give us some. Food was ok but cold and at that point it wasn’t as enjoyable as it should have been. We had to wait again before getting anyone’s attention to get a little cheese. When we were looking at the menu, it stated prices had changed and we were ok with that. What we were not ok with is the 5% service charge they added to our bill. Raising prices on the food wasn’t enough! It’s a beautiful place but we will never go there again. We don’t mind spending money for a good meal and good service but it took way too much effort to get anything. Very disappointing.

Our server was not properly trained. Not his fault. He did not know to give a taste of the bottle of wine before pouring. He said "if you know the brand then you know its good." I said, the point is to see if the "bottle" is good not the brand. The food took forever and a table next to us was so loud we could barely hear ourselves. We ended up cancelling the second bottle of wine and not even ordering dinner. It usually is very good so I guess it was an off Friday night. Also said in the notes when I booked the table that it was two friends' birthdays and to bring a dessert with a candle. That never happened.

The room was all wood and there wasn't much to absorb the volume of people out for a good time. So God bless us all to be out again, but it was hard to hear my dinner partner. Service was polite but slow. Food was VERY good.

Met clients for business dinner. This was my first time visiting restaurant. Service was good but felt like we were being rushed. There was no wait or crowd , so not sure why we were hurried. Price fix meal on Thursday is good value, but they cut back on portion size. Ordered upgrade filet mignon which was quality but totally overcooked. Good overall meal and experience but nothing great.
