I went ficant time in Carmel,here on my birthday and I also had a coupon, which are sent pretty regularly if you are a member of their rewards program. As someone who has spent a significant time in the Carmel region, I easily glean the correlation to one of the most beautiful places in America = FOOD and WINE. Even... More

First time here, appears to be a good local place. Food was good and arrived as ordered. The order process is funky, they have an option to self order thru tablets menus, which we opted for. But a couple of drinks ordered never arrived, as it turns out, if a drink ingredient is unavailable... there is no flag to the... More

Lived in the area for over two years and just discovered this little gem a mile from home! Beautiful atmosphere and staff who couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. The food is great, with special Prix Fix pricing on Sundays and Mondays. Join their club for many benefits as well. This will be a regular place for sure!

The place had some appeal when it first opened but has gone down down downhill. The momentum is mesmerizing, as it spirals down. The food is not that good, the errors many. How does risotto take only 7 minutes? Microwave??

We had dinner here on New Year's Eve, 2016. Service was attentive and friendly. Our server even provided a free dessert when she found out it was our anniversary. The food is well presented and tasted great.

I've never been to a "Wine Bar" before but it just seems like a pretty upscale fancy bar, very clean place. The Meatball, Edamame, and Muhammara appetizers were terrific. I personally wasn't find of my Grilled Morrocan Chicken sandwich but I really enjoyed their French Onion soup and my girlfriend loved her Chicken Salad Croissant. As far as drinks and... More

Have driven past this many times without even knowing it was there. Glad that we found it. I feel that the menu is a little overpriced, especially at lunch. The steak frites was good but was under cooked for my liking. However they quickly fixed this. The chickpea fries and spinach dip were very good. Would recommend for an upscale... More
