We went on a Saturday night, place was near full but we arrived early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Although full, noise levels were quite manageable and comfortable. My wife had a salad which she enjoyed, while I opted for French onion soup...More

We've been going to Carver's since 1997. Whenever we are in San Diego, we always go back for dinner. The food and the service are always excellent. The furniture may be getting a little worn, but you go there for the food. The meats are...More
