Food is amazing
Beautiful location and food was delicious
Never a disappointment. Love coming here, great ambiance, exceptionally friendly staff, great food. It's an Oasis.
The food was DELICIOUS! Fresh, properly cooked and seasoned. We sat exactly where I requested and had a wonderful time! Will definitely be back again.
I was underwhelmed by our dinner at Cara. Although the atmosphere is lovely, the food and cocktails were average (at best) and overall it was overpriced.
Very nice ambiance. Great food. Friendly staff. Gorgeous people. Good vibes all around.
Cara is lovely, romantic and has a great wait staff. They also apparently do not allow you to make reservations and only get a drink. I made a reservation for a date and we wanted to just have drinks. We were then told we had to order food or give up our table. We ordered food. The server was apologetic. It was all fine, but just as an FYI!
It took 40 min to finally have a waiter, but they were really nice and covered our first round of drinks.
The food was amazing. The service was top notch.
Cara’s atmosphere & ambience made my date night unforgettable, not to mention the amazing food! In a word, Cara is Exceptional.
We came here to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday and everything exceeded our expectations! We were a group of 10, with a child and baby and everything was flawless! Ruth, our server was incredible, patient, kind and on point! The GM stopped by to check on our table which i always appreciate and the rest of the wait staff was lovely and so helpful! The drinks were unique and delicious and the food was out of this world! As a large group, we were able to try most items on the menu my top favorites were, the ceviche, lemon pasta, lamb chops, ribeye (best steak I’ve ever had honestly) the carrots, and the Brussels sprouts, chefs kiss magic! This was my second time dining at The Cara Hotel and it never disappoints. For date night or a larger celebratory meal, this is a hidden gem in the heart of E Hollywood that everyone needs to experience! Thank you so such a lovely and memorable evening!
Had a wonderful dinner here on my birthday. The ambiance is beautiful and even though there were tables near us I never heard another conversation. Maybe they were too busy eating the delicious food. I came with a friend, but I can imagine this being a great date location.
Perfect outdoor seating if you are looking for privacy. Great food. All around a terrific choice.
It was nice. Our server was amazing, very nice! Food was good.
I love this place. It is still my favorite place to eat. It’s the combination of ambiance , service, presentation , food and Ruth. The best looking attendant. Haha. They have an awesome new manager. He was so welcoming. Thank you Mourad Maji.
I think they may have been short staffed. We had reservations at 9 and didn’t get seated until almost 10. Even just waiting around, it took probably 30 minutes to get a drink. Finally the hostess just took our drink orders and brought it herself. You can’t blame anyone for that. It happens. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. I almost never ask to have food taken back, but i think they emptied an entire shaker of salt on the ceviche. We asked them to bring another one, without salt, which was much better. Go for the ambience and vibe, not necessarily for an amazing meal, and you’ll be more than satisfied.
Nasty food, horrible waitress, wonderful hostesses!
Literally the best hotel in LA. Everything is impeccable from the staff to food etc.
Everyone went above and beyond for everything! Couldn’t of had a better weekend
I made a reservation at Cara for my birthday, and was really excited to try the place. We arrived 5 minutes late and I called ahead of time to let the restaurant know. When we arrived, they had told us to wait in the lobby for our table and that it should bee ready shortly. We hangout in the lobby and ordered drinks while waiting for our table. Drinks were great! We had been waiting 30 minutes so far and went up to the host stand to check on our table hoping it would be ready soon, because we had a reservation and it had already been 30 minutes since we arrived. We checked with the host stand multiple times and ended up waiting a total of almost an hour and a half til we were seated. It was very frustrating to have to wait that long WITH a reservation and barely ended up ordering any food or being able to enjoy our meal due to having other places to be. The food was amazing and so were the drinks but apparently even with a reservation you still may be waiting a while for your table. No one was apologetic towards us and it was very frustrating.
We had a terrible experience. They closed their patios but didn’t tell anyone in advance so about 40 of us had our reservations cancelled by the restaurant. But they didn’t tell anyone till they arrived. The host said she had no idea how long we would have to wait, didn’t apologize or offer to schedule us for a different night, and generally didn’t care. They also crammed close to 50 people into their small lobby to wait, in the middle of a pandemic. We ended up having to leave without eating. Don’t go here - it’s horrible.
Our girl’s trip came here for Saturday dinner and it was an absolutely amazing experience! I want to say a special thanks to Ruth for ensuring that we were well taken care of and that we had a great time celebrating our birthday girl. Also, thank you Emily for accommodating our last minute addition!
All around wonderful, the food tasted incredible and the drinks were great!!
Very very poor device, slowest restaurant, took 300likes to get seated with a reservation, 40min to make a easy burratta, hilarious!
Amazing service. Most of the food was good. Wine list was so so but good cocktails. Branzino looked boiled and not much flavor which was a big disappointment. Great vibe though.
Buen servicio, el lugar muy cómodo y relajante
Our server wasn’t quite attentive especially for having such a light section. Overall, experience was great, food was delicious but could have a better selection of menu options as well as more flavor in some items. Beautiful seating areas, and hip music selections played throughout the night. Will definitely be back again ☺️
Overall great food and location however the service was terrible. Very disappointed in how long it took. I’m assuming they were short staffed.
Birthday!! Loved it ALL
Good interior design
Service is great, ambiance perfect. Food was delicious. It was a little expensive, that’s the only thing.
But great for special occasions.
We love it but last night wasn't a 5 star....
Ordered drinks and it took 17 minutes to get them...
They removed the Tasmanian Steak
Replacement steaks were good but not the Tasmanian
My partner ordered a glass of Cab with his meal, took another 13 minutes to get it.
overall, still good experience, just not 5 stars on everything
Excellent and beautiful place to have dinner. Food was delicious. Definitely will come back.
Excellent setting. Beautiful. Food was delicious. Great drinks, great service.
My friend and I share birthdays within a week so we always celebrate together. We had been wanting to try Cara, and ambiance didn’t disappoint. It’s beautifully set poolside with perfect lighting and palm trees. The cocktails and food were amazing. Highly recommend the lemon pasta, mushrooms and branzino. Just delicious! However, we were disappointed at the service provided by our waiter who literally disappeared after entrée. For like 40min we waited to order dessert and no one came. We asked the front desk finally to just bring our check since we had to leave. The waiter finally shows up with the check and apologized that he had too many tables to take care of (but he wasn’t even on the floor or anywhere in site). Well it was a disappointing way to end our bday dinner without bday desserts but I would give it a try and hopefully with a better waiter.
Lovely atmosphere – very serene and pretty! And the food was outstanding! Highly recommend the Lemon Pasta and the Grapefruit/Avocado salad (sounds strange but was delicious).
It was pretty good
It was my birthday We were seated by the kitchen . There was nothing special set up . Not ever a complimentary birthday dessert nothing.
Very Nice restaurant!
