    This is a hidden gem, albeit an overpriced one. The hotel and restaurant are absolutely gorgeous. Food wise the portions are very generous although the chef could stand to go a little lighter on the salt when preparing vegetables. I had the Scottish salmon which was perfection but the veggie pairing was very salty and felt quite heavy. Also, ridiculously overpriced but still a great night out. When all is said and done the staff was fab and I'll def go back

    Cara was a beautiful experience. The Ceviche was the best thing I’d tasted. The only downfall was the brownie. The brownie was hard and a little flavorless. Other then that, the vibe was great, the food and drinks were excellent and the service was also very good!

    Love everything about it. Space is gorgeous. Staff if friendly and helpful. Food is fabulous. Brunch and lunch menus offer more and better choices than dinner and breakfast. Great place for any occasion or just a fun meal w/friends. We've always found parking on side streets within a couple blocks.

    The ambiance is gorgeous. Food is good but not necessarily the best but much in town but lots of options. The service was awful. Perhaps they were understaffed but nothing was communicated with us. Instead, we waited forever and had to ask several times for someone to help us and check on our food. For such a nice place, the bad service was shocking.

    I love Cara, but my only issue when I visit, is that it takes an oddly long amount of time to get each item (drink, starter, main, etc.). And it feels strange to say it's limited to a 90 min dining experience, when we didn't have out food for almost 60-70 minutes! Just some food for thought!

    Not enough food for the price you pay. Dessert was not memorable. The walls need to be paint. The wall I set by was dirty. The table set cloths they used looked like they spent 1 dollar on very cheap looking. Service was bad we got overbilled and seemed like the waiter was trying to attend to everyone seemed understaffed there. I would go back just for the ambiance but I would eat first before coming.

    We’ve been to Cara a number of times and lately it is just getting worse. Every time we make a reservation we have to wait 15-30 minutes just to get sat from the reservation time. The all day menu is weird. Really overpriced, and doesn’t have very much variety. Like three raw fish options, a number of desserts, but two sandwiches (both beef based?). The service is almost always lacking. The server doesn’t check in often, the food takes forever, and by the time we got it, it was cold. The design of the place is perfection, but everything else is not good.

    Great ambiance. Our waiter was good, but unfortunately, we had to wait a *long* time between orders to find him. Drinks took almost 25+ mins to serve despite other tables being served. Regardless, great ambiance for a date.
