    The dessert ones are really good. The savory ones were alright. It’s meant to be the entree and they were huge. Would be better if it’s more a side with some protein as an entree not as the whole dish by itself.

    Have been twice. Fantastic food and service each time. Very small team (chef plus server and the owner), all of them are great. Highly recommend.

    It's a pleasure to have a specialty food like a soufflé at the restaurant. The dinner soufflés were very good but we were disappointed that the grand marnier soufflé tasted more like a vanilla cream and did not have any grand marnier flavor that we could detect. We also would have expected to be offered coffee at the end of the meal. they did not seem to have any from what we saw on other tables. And a flower on the tables and a little background music would add some ambience.

    We were.very pleased with our dinner. When ordering, you make a selection of appetizer, main and dessert. We chose a Borscht and a salad. Delicious, Both of us decided on the Garlic Soufflé with Crab Sauce. Perfect! My husband loved his Roquefort Soufflé and I I ate every bite of my Grand Mariner Soufflé. Service was excellent. Will be repeat diners.

    Servers were wonderful. Space is tight but nicely appointed. App & Main Course soufflés were perfect. Fruit dessert soufflés also perfect, but dark chocolate dessert soufflés were a bid bland and dry (although ice cream was terrific). Other than that, a perfect experience. We’ll be back.

    As part time residents, this is our very favorite restaurant in Carmel by the Sea. The food is fantastic, service amazing and just a wonderful experience each and every visit. Love the seasonal changes and the Roquefort dessert soufflé is my go to! Soufflés, Champagne and amazing time, what could be better!
