    This was an anniversary dinner date with my partner, and I included the details in the reservation. I told them to please surprise her for this occassion, as she had wanted to go here for awhile. Not a single mention of it from any of the staff and never did anything special for it - a real shame and joke from a place you would expect a higher standard from given the price point. Ambiance is as it looks, none of the food options wow'd me. It's simply just ok.

    Loved the ambience; music was a bit too loud for me. Server very capable; however, took silver without replacing until I asked; didn't ask re. packaging all leftovers, but was very polite

    This restaurant is AMAZING! My bf and I have been to a lot of restaurants in L.A. and this one tops them all. We arrived a few minutes early and got seated right away. We were absolutely stunned by the ambience and beauty. My bf kept asking me "how did you find this place!" We were in awe just sitting down at the table staring around at the lights and pool. The service was very fast and the staff are so kind. The food was incredible and exceeded our expectations. We couldn't believe there could be such a hidden gem with good food, service, and atmosphere. The 'make me famous' and 'strawberry limonata' drinks are fresh and tasty. I highly recommend this place, we are definitely coming back!!

    We arrived for dinner and felt welcomed upon our arrival and pool seating was accommodated. All the staff was friendly and professional especially our waiter. The experience was definitely luxurious as far as the ambiance, staff dress code, food &drink options. Our waiter (Josh) was so chill and gave recommendations that suited both me and my partners preferences and everything hit the spot! They did briefly mention our 90 minute limit at the beginning but not once felt rushed as we celebrated my loves birthday. I enjoyed the romantic vibe and heaters that kept us from freezing. I didn’t have to wear a jacket (yay). Would definitely recommend for a date night, birthday, special celebration, or spontaneous outing if you want quality food,drinks , and service. Little Gem Salad 7/10 El Diablo Margarita 10/10 24 Aged Lemon Pasta 8/10 Violet Skies 10/10 * this taste like the color violet if the color had a flavor to it lol Lamb w/ kale mashed potatoes 11/10 *so tender and flavorful

    On a cold rainy night we receive a very warm welcome and smile from the Valet to the hostess! The heating lamps warm our backs as we see the raindrops across the foliage and lighting glistening in the pool. I was here to expose my nieces to a “fancy” dinner experience before going to the theatre =success! Waiter was spectacular in keeping up with our time requirement while making great suggestions for dinner. The beet infused gin cocktail was marvelous and finale of coffee to go. The in between was made of truffled pappardelle, salmon dish with a great base, and of course a hamburger with extra helping of Cara sauce. We were disappointed with the end of the salmon helping after finding 2 long hairs extracted after eating most of the meal. We brought it to the attention of the staff and hope that the necessary steps will be taken to mitigate future surprises. We were offered dessert or replacement entree but time was limited.

    Hostess was very rude we were there 1/15 at 7:30 pm. And we sat at the bar as we arrived early at 6:40, then Hostess cake to the bar to rush us to our table at around 6:55. Then when she sat us at our table she was very adamant that we could only stay 90 minutes. Her vibe and approach I was very demeaning.

    I Came in for a late breakfast with a friend who’s visiting ! It was pouring raining and we still had a marvelous time catching up! Danielle was our server and she was wonderful . The staff was super accommodating and very personable. Everyone stopped by to check in on us and were extremely friendly & upbeat. Outstanding service! Food and beverages were great ! Can’t wait to come back and try the dinner menu one of these nights ! Thanks again :) also, the front desk hotel manager ( I think that was her job role? Sorry if I’m getting it wrong) Alex at the front desk by the bathrooms was a complete doll. What a sweetheart ! She expressed how much she loves her job at Cara and loves the company! I just wanted to make sure I gave her the shoutout she deserves ! Thanks again Cara!

    Dining at Cara was a lovely and relaxing experience. This is the perfect date spot. The entire staff is so kind, communicative and professional. We made a reservation to dine outside and were seated right next to the pool. It was perfect. The playlist was so upbeat and unique and not too loud. Our server, Josh was so attentive, kind, and easy-going. He was helpful with recommendations and his personal favorites. The food is phenomenal, and the presentation was beautiful. This luxury hotel is a hidden gem. I highly recommend it.

    Definitely has a good vibe. We went on a Saturday night and had a reservation, which they were about 25-30 minutes behind on. Drinks were much better than the food. We both had the cheeseburger and it was absolutely okay.

    Been here many times usually a great time but last night just seemed off. Hostess was great. We were sat down but took a while for our waitress to greet us. Sat by the pool area and unfortunately another waitress kept going and forth behind my husband to get out of the area. Didn’t even say excuse me. Why force yourself in a small area and disrupt dinner guests. My husbands ribeye was more rare than requested. Overall it was ok I would come back hoping Caras service goes back to when it first opened

    I booked this reservation same day for my friends who got engaged and we couldn’t have been welcomed with better service. The manager Kristen congratulated my friends in such a warm way and started our night off perfectly. We were then being taken care of by Anastasia who went above and beyond with her service. She was very attentive the entire time, gave excellent recommendations, and had the best energy the entire time. Francisco, who was bussing our table was so polite we connected on a personal level through Mexican heritage. The food had everyone sharing the with each other because it was that delicious. I will absolutely be back and recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
