All was very good as it usually is at Cafe Carlo. I don’t like to give perfect marks too freely but they get closer than most. A minor criticism would be to make sure that the Creme Brûlée was totally smooth.
As always we had a lovely meal and great service, thank you. All the servers and staff are professional and very friendly.
I was a concerned however about the use of rigid clear plastic masks worn by some staff. I do not believe these are proper for food service as they allow air flow in and out of the mask. Masks are meant to fit tightly and reduce disbursement of airborne viruses.
I was very uncomfortable whenever our server approached the table. So, unfortunately I cannot return if this style of mask is being worn at the restaurant as I feel wearing an ill fitting mask is the same as not wearing a mask. Also it was sort of creepy.
As always, Cafe Carlo delivered a great dining experience. The various meals our group had were all excellent, our server was knowledgeable and delivered personal yet not intrusive service and the ambience was comfortable and charming as usual. The COVID-19 protocols were followed to a tee and our group felt very comfortable dining there.
We are always impressed by the qyaloty gourmet foods, impaccable service and love the place! One of our fave places to eat!
Always great. the lamb was outstanding!! Caesar salad was great. Super quick service. Ravioli was great as well. I usually have the meat penne which is always good.
Friendly wait staff and great service
Such a charming place. I look forward to the different flavours of butter with the bread!
Everything was wonderful. The staff were attentive and respectful. Dinner was a treat with all the cooking we are doing at home. Thoroughly enjoyed our night out.
Food was delicious and staff was knowledgeable, professional and enthusiastic. Our reservation was for 6pm on a Friday night. It was relatively quiet until about 7:30.
Great food and service. Very clean with good COVID precautions. Definitely felt safe eating here. Highly recommended.
Great food and service. The Spring Rolls are amazing!
Once again, when we've wanted something a bit special, Cafe Carlo has provided the food, the service and the (newly-quieter) ambience to create another great memory.
Many thanks from Mike and Cindy
Our favorite restaurant. Celebrate our anniversary here every year.
Belated birthday celebrations

Will be going back.
The mussels are delicious and the staff is extra friendly!
Fabulous, as always. Our favorite place for a nice dinner out!!
We were celebrating a book being published.
I have had dinner a couple of times this summer and enjoyed the food, service and ambience. I had the dinner special which was pork medallions with blueberry burnt butter, buttermilk mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was so delicious! I also enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli at my other visit. Great food! Can't wait to go back!
Restaurant has well spaced the tables. Menu was full as it was before COVID. Portions are still decent. We both decided on the seafood penne which was very good....ample amount of lemony cream sauce. The only reason for less than a full 5 star rating was due to the seafood being overdone and hard. I was expecting more tender morsels for the $33 plate price. paired it with the rose. Tres bien!
Our server was amazing, the food is delicious! Can’t say enough how much everyone should try this place !
This is our favourite place. The food, staff and ambiance is outstanding.
Bonnie, as usual, personified professionalism !!!
My wife and I have been coming here for years. Our favorite place to eat in the city. Service is always great and the food always just as good.
Waitress seemed new and was a little slow managing all her tables...
But we go there regularly for the food...
As usual, wonderful, friendly service and great food!
Excellent food, service and value. Consistent over last three decades and have kept special recipes over all years such as seafood soup and variety of pasta dishes like seafood pastas.
Best mussels Ive ever had hands down. 100% recommend mmm!
Food is excellent as per usual!
It’s always too cold in there though and sometimes the service is too fast, I sometimes get my salad and bread and main almost at the same time. I understand turnaround is important for them but I want to enjoy my entire meal!
Service is always very kind though and I still love going there!
Food was perfect and timely! Plus many delicious options making it tough to choose! Thus, I have to go back! Service was impeccable! Cafe Carlo was one of my best dining experiences of all time! Also, there was an interesting item on the chefs special menu..."Buy a round for the kitchen"...which was the first thing I ordered. This tells me the owner truly cares about the staff!!!
We had a wonderful meal and really enjoyed our server, Bonnie, thank you
This restaurant is great! There was one server and you still felt taken care of ! She knew her stuff and made great recommendations! Definitely going to come back
Pasta with clams super garlicky.. never not finished a pasta
Best food I have had in a long time at a restaurant. Both my wife's and my dishes were perfect, even though the entrees were very different. I am definitely coming back!
Great food and service...appreciate extra effort following COVID guidelines for safety.
Excellent service and delicious food. We enjoyed our meals, drinks and the atmosphere very much
Cafe Carlo is one of the best restaurants in the city. The food is always delicious without fail. It’s a quaint and quiet neighbourhood restaurant. We love it! The staff is always attentive and friendly. Service is impeccable.
