My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at this restaurant while on vacation. Our first time visiting Carmel and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We ordered appetizers and grilled salmon and filet mignon and everything was delicious. I tried a local white wine that I...enjoyed. Our waiter was very helpful and we enjoyed talking to him as well. Highly recommend you won’t be disappointed!More

We had this place on our list to eat while visiting Carmel based on all the reviews. I honestly don't think it was anything special. It had a long wait and people lined up outside. We had fish and chips and didn't even finish it....The tables are very close together and kind of noisy. The menu was okay, I just was not impressed.More

Super evening we had there. Act we came two evenings, because of the service and the food. Super raviolis stuffed with crab meat and a delicious sauce with shrimps. As starter we had a very nice caprese. Excellent smooth mozzarella and ripe local tomatoes.

New ways to rip off the customer: charge 3.5% to use a credit card. This is apparently disclosed somewhere on the menu (the proverbial “fine print”), though I didn’t see it and I suspect the vast majority of customers don’t notice it. If you’re going...to rip off customers, the least you could do is to make it clear and let them know up front, i.e. before they get to the restaurant. They way, if they want to pay cash, they can come prepared. Interestingly, the charge is applied to your check BEFORE you even indicate your intention to pay with a credit (or debit) card — the restaurant obviously knows that virtually everyone pays with credit cards these days. The restaurant is not cheap — how many people walk around with hundreds of dollars of cash in their pockets? I’d also point out that the restaurant pays LESS than 3.5% to visa — thus, the restaurant is making an additional profit when customers pay by credit card. This is a tourist area, and I’m sure they count on the fact that many customers are simply passing through, and thus the restaurant is less dependent on repeat customers than restaurants in a less touristy area. I would NEVER return to this restaurant, and I encourage you to avoid them until they change their dishonest, shameful ways. The only way to put an end to ridiculous fees and policies like this is to vote with your feet and dine elsewhere.More

4 English golfers (Brad, Chad, Glad and Dad) visited on Friday 20th May and had a superb meal. Food excellent, wine great and staff were fantastic. Highly recommend and we will be back for more, before we travel back to the UK.

Nice place that looks a lot bigger than it is with mirrors on all walls . Food was nice and try service large portions . Appetizers all to share. Calamari were a bit chewy which was a shame . The Korean short ribs were really...nicely seasoned . A lot of meat but a little bit to thin sliced in my opinion. The scallops / shrimp dish with garlic was great . My son had Chicken wings that were really juicy / nicely flavored . Nice staff . Overall a nice experience but compared to other places imo way to overpriced even in comparison with other restaurants in the city that serves identical foodMore

Went for dinner, and from the host stand on, it was a fantastic experience. We sat at the bar with Artie (“the Party”) who was great. Loved the drinks and food. What a treat to find Hawaiian-Korean dishes! The kimchi was good (which isn’t always...the case since kimchi became trendy outside of actual Korean restaurants). Went back for breakfast. Also really good. And while we didn’t have cocktails in the AM, they were a sight to see!More

Absolutely the best breakfast and the best drinks I’ve had at breakfast time! Me and my wife came here to have some food and it turned out to be immaculate.

Just lucked into a table at this wonderful place for lunch while on a day trip to Carmel. The atmosphere is artsy and cool, and the vibe was high energy at mid day on a Sunday. I had the heirloom tomato salad with egg, and...my friend had the fish tacos. Both were excellent; there were many more tempting dishes for larger appetites. Service was friendly, professional, and prompt. It's definitely worth another meal on the next visit to Carmel!More

Our food was attractively presented and in general the staff were attentive; however, the food was overpriced and nothing special. I would not recommend this establishment.
