I haven't eaten at this restaurant in several years, but I remembered it as nice and the food good. I live an hour and a half away, but I was taking a Ramona friend to lunch for his Birthday. We both ordered the same dish, which was a Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo. The white sauce was way too watery and runny.... More

D'Carlos has one of the nicer interiors in town, and a lovely outside patio, so why isn't it full of people. As a local, I've always thought D'Carlos could be better than it is. Still do. Why? The hours change over time. Now they have big signs with new hours. Good - hope they stay consistent. The service is inconsistent.... More

Tried their breakfast but service was really slow. Food was great but apparently this was their first week of serving breakfast. Really disappointed as D'Carlo's was highly recommended, I am surprised that an established restaurant with a good reputation was not sufficiently prepared. The restaurant was by no means full, maybe 30 to 35 customers yet it appeared to be... More

Being in a new town seems to naturally lends itself to checking out new places as one settles in and learns the local fare! We had heard good things about D'Carlos, how they use local, fresh grown produce in their efforts to support local growers and contribute to the community. We liked this ideal, and thought we reserve the occasion... More

We use to go here for special occasions. Now we enjoy dropping by for lunch or an early dinner. Food is good and reasonably priced.

Stopped for a quick dinner. It wasn't. Ordered tacos because it was taco Tuesday. Service was slow and tacos were average. Their premier Cadillac margarita was great. I usually like D'Carlos. This just wasn't their night.

It reminds me of a diner but has a lot of options on the menu. The outdoor area looks nice but the one time we requested to be seated there we were told it was closed for a private party.

Average fare, good service. Decent menu. Party of 4. Steak was over cooked. Chicken was good. Limited wine list. For Ramona it's ok.

The food was not much different then Denny's but at a higher cost. The atmosphere/decor same level,,,,,cafeteria plain. The service mediocre. Very disappointing given the overall few choices in Ramona.

D'Carlos used to be a fantastic steakhouse restaurant. It's changed a lot over the years. They still have good food but not as good as it once was and they've lessened the portions. Service is usually pretty good. Not much of a wait for seating. You can also sit outside. Try the prime rib salad, one of my favorites!

Thank Aloma D
