The evening could not have been more special. Warmly greeted by the Parking Valet and the front desk. Immediately seated at the best table in the house, in the window with a beautiful view overlooking Easton's Beach. Cole, who attended our table was a reacquaintance from two years ago and obvious remembered us. He was fantastic and I can't begin to describe how much he contributed to a terrific evening. Every single bite of food for both my wife and I was out of this world. This is the place you save for the most important times of your life. After dining there twice in two years, both my wife and I can describe in great detail each and every dish placed in front of us. Truly five star across the board.

Cara has a magnificent view overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The six course tasting meal was a culinary experience.

My husband took me here for my birthday. We sat inside with the most spectacular view . We started off with a couple cocktails that were perfectly balanced and beautifully garnished. Our server was Cole. He was prompt and very knowledgeable in regards to the food, flavors, wine and where everything was sourced from, most of which is local which we appreciate immensely. We picked the tasting menu called “Plunge” which is a 6 course meal with wine pairings. Literally everything we had was delicious and decadent. The wine pairings perfectly complimented and enhanced every dish. We thoroughly enjoyed this place. It’s a little on the pricey side so it’s sort of a splurge but the whole experience is so worth it . They also have outdoor seating that’s a bit more casual and offers a different menu. We will try that next . Highly recommend this place . They know what they’re doing . If you’re looking to be spoiled or spoil someone, this is where to do it!

While initially a bit concerned by waiting about 10 minutes for hostess, we were pleasantly surprised by very attentive hostess and waitstaff. The food was amazing-delicate complex flavors. While pricey, the service is excellent and you cannot beat the location by the side of the Cliffwalk. We had a great meal and lovely experience at Cara.
