This is the go-to restaurant for my parents, who live in Clearwater, and is a "must" whenever I visit. It's always a Wednesday (half-price bottles of wine) and it's always a table with their favorite wait staff (Nathalie). We have shared small plates, have indulged in big plates, and at times we have splurged on dessert. The meals are consistently... More

We started off with the calamari and shrimp with saffron ailoi and sweet thai chili. WOW, it was the best I've ever had. The sauce was sweet and savory and the calamari was fried to perfection. I got the short ribs with mashed potatoes and the meat was so tender and juicy it fell apart. My husband got the sirloin... More

Really enjoyed the Eggs Benny - done as ordered - a bit more hollandaise would be v/nice. Fresh fruit side - was fresh and tasty. Had the bottomless Bloody Mary - 3 trips to the self serve bar, although made them light - choice of 2 infused vodkas - you control the amount - and many choices for the add-ons... More

Had a Monday night dinner here as I was intrigued by the wine offerings. The $20 wine special did not include a lot of the wines featured and was somewhat confusing as to what was or was not included. I had the very bland Greek Caesar salad - dressing was tasteless and non-existent. Lamb chops were small and very average.... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere - the wait staff is attentive but not overbearing. My friend & I had a lot to catch up on & our waitress let us have time to talk but made sure we had what we needed. Ordered a pitcher of sangria & it was huge! It was good but couldn't finish it - could have served... More

I really wanted to love this place. I think the concept is great, however after four bad experiences I'm done. First brunch visit my French Toast was dusted with salt instead of sugar and had to be remade. Second brunch visit all the tables around us received complimentary blueberry muffins, our table did not. Brunch number three, we were told... More

We have been coming to Carmel cafe since the opening on dale mabry in Tampa and we have always enjoyed coming to the countryside location. They have changed their menu!!! They no longer have the staples like Nan's goat cheese and tomato bisque. The mushroom bisque was exotic. The fries were over cooked. When it came to dessert we used... More

Recommended by my daughter and a friend we had a late dinner last Friday. The appetizers were great, the service was excellent and the ambiance, casual, elegant. The food was very well presented, delicious and a great wine list. The bar looked very nice for a group of friends to have a great time! I strongly recommend this cozy restaurant.

Went for Sunday brunch. They were understaffed. Coffee tasted like it had been sitting a while. Food was okay. Ambiance okay. Clean. Service was slow. They brag about their "homemade sweet roll" however, they were "out". Not interested in returning.
