Great experience with awesome food and service.
Our server was attentive and anticipated our needs, made helpful recommendations. Service was impeccable. The food was exceptional . We will return!
The food was very good. The waiter friendly but a bit busy. I enjoyer the atmosphere.
Very nice lunch. Flexible service to food allergies and attentive to our tight schedule. Definitely will return
Excellent restaurant. Love the service, food and ambiance.
3rd year in a row that we celebrate our anniversary there. It’s become something of a tradition now. The hostess remembered that I had noted the purpose of the dinner on our reservation and asked if we wanted to wait for their special table. It was very nice for her to make note of the detail and to take the time (the restaurant was very busy) to make use feel special. This place truly is a gem. Staff was super attentive and the food was beyond terrific. I had a half rack of lamb and my wife had the tenderloin. Both were cooked perfectly to order. The one thing that I love about this place is that everything on your plate is terrific. The side veggie that day was a yellow zucchini and I gobbled it up faster than the lamb it was so good. I’ve been to a lot of nice restaurants where the entrees are equally decadent but they are accompanied by that sad limp trio of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower that nobody really eats. Not the case here. Compliments to the kitchen for that as well!
Loved our meal! The seafood penne was amazing and our server was great. We’ve been there twice in the last 6 weeks and will definitely be going back.
Cafe Carlo has been my favourite restaurant since it opened. The food is great, the service is super and fun… And it’s just a great place to spend an evening having dinner with friends.
Great food and wine with a great staff that looked after all our wishes!
We had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious, the waitress was wonderful and the ambience was lovely. All in all, a fantastic dinner.
It was our first time at Cafe Carlo but if have looked at the menu and considered many times before. Fortunately this time I was able to get a reservation at the preferred time! We enjoyed fish tacos, scallops (amazing) and spring rolls from the small plates and went straight to dessert which also was delicious! We tried a few different cocktails between the 2 of us and all was on point. Will definitely be back!
We sat down at 5:30 PM by seven it was packed it's a little noisy because it's a small restaurant. But the food is amazing
First time in here, kinda disappointed in the food I ordered, it’s overbaked, but the drink and the service was great.
The service is excellent. The generous portions of wonderfully delicious food help make the experience a great one.
Great food and hospitality! It's no wonder Cafe Carlo has been a fixture in the neighbourhood for decades. Everyone in our party of four thoroughly enjoyed their meals - seafood penne, Fett Chile and beef tenderloin - as well as a few salads and fresh bread with the day's feature butter flavour. Service was friendly, helpful and attentive, the soft background music (Motown hits on our night) was a crowd-pleaser for our multi-generational group, and we plan to return to try more of the menu.
Food was great and really appreciated the gluten free options.
Great food and tons of options for one and drinks.
Food was great. Service not so much. Was waiting quite awhile before our food came and people who came in after us got their food first. Need more than one waitress working.
Lovely place for lunch with friends. Lots of diversity on the menu and willingness to adjust to accommodate special diet requirements.
Always delicious!! Been here many times and it is always great. Cute little restaurant in Corydon area.
We have been going to Cafe Carlo for over 30 years. The food and service are always excellent, and the menu changes in interesting ways. The special the other night was lamb sirloin and it was medium rare, with a super braised crust. Great evening.
This was the first time I had been and the food was so delicious. We went for two birthdays and I noted that when I made the reservation. The host or server did say I understand we have a birthday when we were seated which was nice but that was it. The server wasn’t overly attentive and we did have drinks and entrees and I thought for sure that the two bday girls would get some sort of mini dessert but they didn’t which was disappointing. I’d definitely go back though...the fett chili was amazing and same with the ravioli and Caesar salad.
Cafe Carlo has been my go-to restaurant for special occasions and intimate dinners for many years. The food is consistently good. The service is just wonderful. Our favourite server knows what we need before we do. I love the ambience.
Very flavourful! We are never disappointed here. The seafood chowder is out of this world
I love this place! I order the seafood Pene every time! Always tempted by the rest of the menu, but as the waitress tells me, “The heart wants what the heart heart wants!”
Haven't been to Cafe Carlo for over 15 years because I moved away from Winnipeg. Loved it when I was living here and so happy that it is every bit as fantastic now as it was back then. Mussels diabolo were my favorite and they still are based on an excellent serving. Also had the broccoli which was amazing. My friends had perch and the beef tenderloin - latter was apparently the best he ever had. All in all a wonderful experience - look forward to going back. Service was perfect - attentive but not overly so. Simply a great experience!
Food was excellent as usual and the friendliness of staff was exceptional. Always have a great experience at Cafe Carlo!
My pickeral meal was good, not great. The fish tasted flat and a bit soggy. Sorry. My friends cattaloni was too soupy ( his words ). In general the 4 meals were good, your service by the 2 waitresses was excellent and highly professional. I would return and try other dishes.
Really nice little restaurant, not busy on a Monday night 6:00, so noise level very quiet. Rack of lamb was delicious as was the calamari to start. Reasonable price for the appetizer and main entree but all desserts were $11 and when we asked how big the creme brûlée was it was minuscule and not big enough to share...really overpriced for that size. So we declined dessert. But all in all would definitely go back, we enjoyed it.
Cafe Carlo was amazing as always. Great for a business lunch where you don't have to worry about the food or service because it is always on point!
We have dined here before and last Saturday, the food was disappointing. The fried chicken should be served without the waffles and with more chicken pieces. The bruschetta was outstanding. The mac'n'cheese was barely warm.
Food and service were fantastic! Lovely evening! Would highly recommend to everyone.
The soup was a mushroom bisque, which was incredible. I had the house special Chilli Fette(?) which was spicy as expected and very flavourful with lots of sauce.
Service was very good and server was knowledgeable of dishes and excellent recommendations.
The dinner and atmosphere are always fantastic, nothing but good things to say about Cafe Carlo.
Very nice service and amazing food!!
Great flavour and prompt service! I will definitely return ‘
Good service, great food - all in all a great evening.
Food was so good that it was worth it to endure the slow service. We had reservations, but still had to wait half an hour at the bar for our table. Couldn't get service at the bar. Eventually got seated. eventually got the menu. Eventually got our orders taken. Wait for the actual food wasn't too bad. Very loud in the dining room. Cafe Carlo has a policy where diners are given only 90 minutes at their table, yet due to slow service we were there for 2 hours. I don't understand it - I counted only 11 occupied tables and 3 serving staff, so I have no explanation for why it was so slow. So here's why I will be back - the food was just that good to turn around an otherwise miserable dining experience. So cheers to the kitchen! FYI - there's an option on the menu to buy the cooks a round of beers. I recommend that instead of leaving a tip for the poor serving staff.
Good food, excellent Sangria, prompt service only negative aspect is the noise level.
I had the veal canneloni which was simply delicious. Friend had the meaty penne which she thoroughly enjoyed and the other person in our party had the chili pasta which apparently was also very good. Portions were more than adequate and service was attentive.
The noise level was very high and sometimes hard to hear across the table. The restaurant was totally full which probably did not help with the noise.
Went on a Tuesday evening and it was full so would recommend making reservations.
Will definitely return.
Fabulous meal and service as always. Bonnie is amazing! Love the fact that they’re eliminating plastic! Way to go! We fully support that and are impressed.
