We went to the Caribou late in the evening to celebrate our 3rd anniversary with drinks and dessert - we were seated in a quiet booth and received great service with a smile. Our Mojitos and desserts were very tasty! A great night-cap! 😊❤️

Fine dinning with a relaxed atmosphere. Staff was super friendly and food was delicious. A bit pricey, not somewhere I'd eat often bit a nice place to bring out of town guests.

Definitely, but I'm not sure there is a kids menu? So if she/he's okay with adult food, I'd definitely bring a 7 year old there.
