    This was our second time at Cara. This chef is new since our first tome. It was good- very good. The prior chef was more innovative and the food was amazing.

    Cara always offers so much more than just a "meal" with their 5- or 8-course blind tasting menu. It's an experience, unlike any we've ever had at any other restaurant. You never know what's coming up next, but are always delighted by it. It's fresh, energetic, it keeps you guessing--and, of course, always delicious. The staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Chef Jacob comes out to introduce each course personally, then takes the time to thank all the guests who had been dining there on their way out. I'd rate it more than 5 stars if I could. And I can't wait till the next time!

    This experience was such a memorable one. We went for our anniversary and were sat in a room with only 4 tables. The chef came out and announced every dish. The dishes were all a suprise and stunning plates and food. Highly recommend.

    We had a magnificent evening at Cara. From our pre-dinner cocktails (with mint that the bartender went out to the garden to pick), though all seven courses (of our five course menu), the service was attentive—including Chef coming out to introduce each course—and the food among the best we’ve ever had. We’ve eaten at our share of Michelin-starred and James Beard award winning restaurants, and even at Maine’s The Lost Kitchen. We would rank this chef’s tasting experience right up with the best of them. It’s a little “spendy”, but totally worth the splurge. Truly hope we’ll be able to return again someday.
