We've been to Carmel many times (although not recently) and had for some reason never eaten here, one of Carmel's oldest restaurants under a single ownership, but thought we would try it on a Sunday evening in mid-December after reading a recent favorable review by the SF Chronicle Food editor, Michael Bauer. We opted for the prix fixe ($139 for... More

My husband had a nice quality meal here. We took advantage of the early bird and enjoyed the meal. The atmosphere is quiet with casual elegance. The service was very attentive but not over-bearing. I highly recommend if you visit Carmel and want a nice meal with good wine selection.

We spent five days in Carmel and tried several of the local restaurants. We arrived around 8:00 and it was very quiet after the dinner rush, with only five or six tables full. Our meal was served professionally, the wine was spectacular, and the ambiance was so relaxing - just perfect for conversation. We had been there earlier in the... More

We had a 8:00 reservation and showed up 10 min. early. We were told to wait in the bar, which we did and had a drink. We noticed other people were eating in the bar and they offered a bar menu. No one ever came and got us to sit at our table. After 45 min. waiting we asked to... More

Great ambience. SENSATIONAL Rack of lamb. Great duck...great appetizers...great desserts...ambitious wine list and warm service. A special place for a special event. No...NOT cheap but still a fine value. We kick ourselves for not going more often!

I believe Anton has changed ownership in the past few years, not sure. But the level of food and service is still 5 star. The manager and wait staff are superb and go out of their way to make sure you are happy with your meal. Food as always excellent. Highly recommend.

From the minute you set into the restaurant you are greeted with great charisma and charm! The service was never less than spectacular and the food was nothing short of perfect. The best meal one can have!

We arrived to the restaurant a couple minutes early. We were told it was just going to be a few minutes for are table by a very rude man. But this was understanding since we were early. But the few minutes turned into a half of a hour. The rude host told us go to the bar (not for free).... More

God what a disappointment. Noisy, cold service. Two of our steaks bloody raw. Vegetables cold. Ravioli lying in a puddle of grease. The bread was rock hard. The waitress was so slow and disconnected. It's a shame. We spend slot of money to dine and get a terrible meal.we deserved better. The Chocolate dessert was good. We will never be... More
