I went with a group of friends on a busy Thursday night. Pleasant, smiling, efficient service. Many options for all tastes and they are willing to make alterations. A little pricey, but well worth it. Comfy wooden booths, would be lovely for a romantic dinner...More

We came here for the second time, and it was even better than the first! I love the creative, Japanese-influenced menu and intimate interior. It felt like a dojo. Our waitress was also amazing and remembered us from the last time we were there 6+...More

Decor was simple but has a comfortable feeling. Enjoyed the Yosenabe - Seafood Claypot for two. Fresh seafood and fun to cook yourself. Service was friendly and attentive.

I had the soy coated salmon and my wife had the tuna. Both were out of this world good. The pasta with the tuna was so good. Best meal we had in Carmel.

Went here because of other people's reviews. Food and service were excellent. Wasn't cheap but not too expensive. It was a little difficult to find and had absolutely no views but we knew of those going into it

Four of us ate at FFG when visiting Pebble. It lived up to its ratings - the service is very personal and attentive. The menu apparently hasn't changed much in years, specializing in well prepared seafood including a lobster special. Everyone enjoyed the apps (we...More
