We were quite satisfied with the food that we had ordered. The ambiance of the restaurant is also very charming and comfortable. However, the service was very disappointing. We had reserved almost two weeks in advance, yet we were pushed to finish our meal quickly due to another reservation that was later in the evening. We understand that there was another reservation, but the manner of pushing the customers to finish quickly and to remind us every time the waitress would come to our table that there will be another service reserved for 8:15 PM, we personally found it very unpleasant. We had also ordered a side which was never brought to us. We had noticed as we were leaving that there was quite a lot space to still keep us for maybe another 10ish min, just so we can perhaps order some dessert, but we were reminded once again that there was another service at 8:15 PM.

Always great when the owner is seen in the kitchen, and Rebecca always makes us feel welcomed., she's so vibrant and really good waitress,,,

I had one bad experience when the owner was not there, but I love this place so much that I decided to give it another chance, and was not disappointed ...

My husband, son and I went for dinner on Saturday night. The atmosphere is very lively. This is a cozy and cute neighbourhood tapas restaurant. The food is very good, made with local and seasonal ingredients. All dishes were very tasty and the staff are courteous and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Excellent bilingual service, excellent food. Great place to have lunch. This is my second time at that restaurant and I shall go back. The service and food was as excellent as the first time. The BYOB thing does not bother me at all.I do not hesitate to recommend it.

the noise level was way too loud. The food was way less than good and most important I have to eat GF food but I still found myself glued to the toilet for an hour when I came home..no fun. I will never be back!!!! The Cozy Café is a better option for me.

Unfortunately, soup and a couple of the dishes were very bland. Not a cheap resto so I expect delish every time. I wanted to love it, I'm not picky. But, I didn't, 160$ tip in , byob, too bad.

Always enjoy Carambola. Becoming more sensitive to salt though and will ask next time to go easy on the salt.

We were 4, and each of us loved our meals! Two of us chose the fish of the day which was trout. It was fresh, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The vegetables were al dente, and again, perfectly seasoned, and I appreciated the taste of butter. We brought our own wine, what a such a treat! The risotto and crab, chicken tacos were hits too. My only suggestion would be to offer another choice than the house dressing (which got rave reviews) for those who are allergic to sesame seed. We highly recommend this farm/sea to table restaurant and look forward to coming back.

Extremely scenic drive out to Hudson for fabulous food. You are always welcomed with a smile and excellent service. Whatever we order is such a treat. The food is excellent and I wish we lived a little closer to enable us to go more often. Only suggestion is to make reservations ahead of time as this is a very popular restaurant and a BYOB.

We found it was really cold in the restaurant, food would not stay hot for very long. It might be a good idea to install a long curtain in front of door to limit the cold from coming inside, especially when it is very cold outside.

I've been to Carambola before but this was my boyfriend's first visit. He's a chef and has very high standards when it comes to all aspects of dining out. I'm not overstating it when I say that our experience surpassed all of his expectations (and mine :)). Excellent, creative cuisine. Friendly, knowledgeable and responsive staff. Great ambience. We can't wait for our next date night at Carambola!
