The pasta was the best dish and my waiter forgot about the desert request and made it awkward when she came. The place was nice.

I go to Cara often, love the ambiance but I'm really getting tired of the very limited menu. They should consider expanding without reducing the number of very good items we have all had to infinity.

Will continue to patronize as it's so convenient to my home and I love the atmosphere.

Excellent from start to finish! Beautiful courtyard makes for amazing ambiance. We had the lamb and bronzino and shared the broccolini all of which were light yet flavorful!!!!! Fast service and well prepared. Drinks were excellent and for dessert we shared the warm chocolate chip cookie and that did not disappoint either!

From the staff, service, food and ambience this place is an absolute delight that I can’t wait to come back. Truly spectacular time. My family visiting from Houston/Austin and us were in awe that we felt like we were traveling outside the US like in Morocco, Greece, Italy or France. Love love love!

The setting is beautiful and the service was excellent. Some of the dishes were great like the lamb which was very tender. The burrata appetizer was very good as were the mushroom and potato side dishes. The smoked spaghetti was interesting but not brilliant.

This place has great ambience but the service is laaaackking. It's so slow! They look to have a huge team as I saw many waiters and bussers, etc. but it took forever to get our food, to get our drinks or to get any attention. Then when the food did come it was sub-par. The prices definitely do not match the quality of the food. I guess you're paying for a cute place to take pictures at! I wouldn't come back though.

I think this is a hip place. The food not that good with price wise. I am little baffled with them indication everything was organic when the taste was not there however, the ambiance and people who want too have social present ned to take selfie in this updated motel. I will not go for food however, for drinks

The staff was very friendly. Our server was courteous and polite. But there were a few delays on beverages and silverware. The side of bacon came out long before the actual main breakfast.

My date and I were really satisfied by the customer service, the food was delicious, arrives on time.
Perfect place for a date night, you can have conversations and hear each other. Cara is definitely a romantic and elegant hotel.
I love their vegan carrot cake and their chocolate brownie is so delicious too. 5️⃣ ⭐️
