We were so excited to try Carlos's after reading positive reviews. Unfortunately, it did not deliver. It was louder than we expected and our table location was chilly. They corrected the temperature once we complained, but I was uncomfortable quite awhile. Our wine never arrived....More

Carlos is hospitable and gracious. $50 entrees- filet mignon and vension were excellent. More "moderate" priced entrees, ~ $30, lacked flavor and subtlety.
