Service was top notch, knowledgeable and friendly. Rack of lamb was exquisite. As were the mussels. Prices are quite reasonable. No TVs makes it great for an intimate evening or a place to catch up with friends.
Service and food was excellent! I will be going back soon!! Very cozy!
Very nice casual. Food is excellent. Service very good. I like it.
Excellent service by Bonnie, delicious meal and warm ambience
Sooooo delicious. Never ever have we had a bad experience at Cafe Carlo. Our waitress gave us a wonderful suggestion for dinner that was not on the menu (couldn’t make up my mind so Tara suggested splitting the gnocchi with 1/2 pesto cream, 1/2 ragu). The service, food, ambiance and overall positive experience are why we keep coming back.
The Food and Service was fantastic. I am excited to go back.
Delicious food! Very small spot so gets crowded fast. Reservations definitely needed for a weekend night. Chile fett is amazing!
Food amazing. Ambience very good. Waiter terrible. The one male waiter in the place. Was totally inattentive. Id say thanks when he would bring stuff and he would just walk away not responding. Left my empty wine glass and empty beer bottle on table all night. Watched him screw up who had what food at all his tables and say "my mental math is off". Guy wasnt rude or anything but had zero service skills for a high end restaurant.
Hi Neil, Thanks for the feedback. Happy to hear you enjoyed the food and the vibe. I'm sorry to hear of your service experience. If you wish to discuss it further please contact me directly at the restaurant.
Always amazing, never had a bad time there. Also always enjoy the artists’ work featured each time
The Fett Chili is the best thing ever. Super friendly staff and guaranteed great quality of food. One of my faves!
Great restaurant serving consistently good food to packed houses for many years. Make a rez -- it full even on week nights. If you are new, you have to have the Fett Chili -- amazing and my fav!!
Food was delicious and presented properly, ambience is always cozy and the service was great.
A really great place to go for an upscale, intimate meal.
The dessert was good. Had the Gnocchi with the ragu sauce, not a big fan of the way it was prepared. But my friends had other dishes that looked good. Mine just wasn't.
Food was awesome, service great as well our server was super friendly
Server was so great! One of us got their fantasy prix fixe deal and the other got just a main as we were going to share the appetizer and salad. He even got the kitchen to split the starter salad on two plates- so considerate
It was our first time at this establishment.
Bonnie was an exceptional server!
Food was delicious.
Will definitely be back again!
Great food and outstanding service. First time we have eaten here and it was excellent.
Excellent except for the fruit fly in my girlfriends wine which should have been taken off the bill in my mind
Very pleasant for a casual dinner.
Fantastic as always. Our go to place for all our celebrations and just going for a dinner out. The staff, the food and the ambiance makes Cafe Carlo what it is. A great place to celebrate all that is good about life.
This restaurant never disappoints. The meals are reasonably priced. Specials are varied every time we go. The wine list is large enough to have options and very affordable. The kitchen is very accommodating for allergies and as a person with Celiac I can always get a great gluten free meal.
This is our new favorite in Winnipeg
The food here is always good. Fresh and flavourful. Serving staff is very attentive and responsive. Loved the ability to 'buy a beer for the kitchen staff ' as a menu item. The 'Birthday Cake Srmifrefo' was to die for!!!!
Bonnie our server was fantastic and the food was terrific!
Excellent food and a gracious/courteous waiting staff. A veg dining experience from start to finish and l highly recommend!
It was a wonderful experience and one that I have already recommended to family and friends.
Great Experience, great food and cocktails and servers are professional and friendly
As usual, the service and dinner were outstanding! One of our favorite go-to places.
My return after 20 or so years to Cafe Carlo was very highly anticipated. It was my only brothers birthday dinner we had planned to have for most of 2 months, we finally found the right date and perfect restaurant for this important evening. My Brother and his partner my girlfriend and I were greeted by Bonnie at the entrance a former high school student of my brother. She started our evening with telling my Bro. how much she loved him ! Then we were escorted to the best window seat in the house , Great !
Soon after being seated the absolutely delightful Tara introduced herself as our waitress for the evening.
Our evening changed from a very anticipatory pleasant time to constantly trying to get Tara's attention for service. She was so very friendly , pleasant and pretty but just didn't pay much attention to us which became a bit frustrating to me on my brothers special day. I feel bad in my criticism of this great little popular cafe. It would have been fine if our very experienced waitress ( 8 years at Cafe Carlo ) could have just come by every so often to ask " How is everything? or "Could I get you anything ? "
We had a lovely lunch at Cafe Carlo today. We split the goat cheese salad and the Fett Chile pasta. These choices were based on reviews read earlier in the day. Everything was so tasty and a glass of wine topped it off. Excellent, friendly service. We will definitely be back! Thank you!
Excellent food. Terrific service. Would highly recommend.
Exceptional service and flavorful food. Lots of menu options to pick from, with interesting daily specials. Seafood chowder is a must try!
Has to be one of my favourite restaurants in Winnipeg!! Best food & service. Perfect for any occasion!
Good overall experience. I would certainly recommend to anyone.
Food is excellent. A bit on noisy side if restaurant is busy.
A group of 4 enjoyed five different appetizers and we ate then like we had never seen food before. Everything came out hot at the same time as requested and every bite wash fantastic. Can’t wait to go for a date night and try the pasta. Fish tacos excellent. Mussel cream sauce best in Winnipeg. Everything was 100
Always our family “go to” spot! Love their mussels in the creamy Pernod sauce! Yummy!
Great experience with awesome food and service.
Second time for me, it was the 1st for another person & 3rd person has been a few times!
Food was amazing.... I ordered the seafood penne & wanted the paperdalle noodles instead no problem at all.
Everything was great! Hope to come back soon! Thank you!
Our server was attentive and anticipated our needs, made helpful recommendations. Service was impeccable. The food was exceptional . We will return!
