Fabulous, as always. Our favorite place for a nice dinner out!!
We were celebrating a book being published.
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.
Joelle is an excellent host. He is genuine. Wonderful dining experience, as per usual. Thank you, M&M
We were celebrating our 51st wedding anniversary.
Always love Cafe Carlo...Food is excellent. We love this place.
Great food and service. Have the Fett Chili, it’s always amazing.
We had a great evening celebrating our anniversary. The food was delicious as usual, the wine was perfect and excellent service. We will certainly keep going back.😊
Great service, incredible food! The pasta selection in fantastic!
Great food and service. Attention to detail. Visit twice a year!
Charming little place with lovely decor and unique menu.
Our dinner evening was absolutely fantastic from the moment we were seated by our server, Bonnie right through to coffee and dessert. We enjoyed an appie of springrolls with a spicy sauce but not overly so. Prior to our main course, we had two starter salads of goat cheese, greens, pinenuts, beets and a wonderful dressing. I had a full rack of lamb with rice pilaf and asparagus done to perfection medium/rare. My wife had smaller appetite and enjoyed a perfect mini mac & cheese which was very tasty and rich. We finished with shared creme brule and coffee. Oh and we shared a very nice reasonably priced French red Beaujolais wine. The evening was a complete success and made very enjoyable by the attentive service provided by Bonnie. The spacing of tables due to covid-19 was well done and we felt extremely comfortable.
Am intimate setting with exceptional food and service. You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. They are famous for their Fett Chili and they make the best filet steak in the city - hands down!
First time eating at Cafe Carlo... The restaurant was quiet, so it was great for our date (this was mostly due to limited seating due to COVID-19). The service was very good, the meals came quickly, and were amazing, as were our beverages. Looking forward to returning to try other meals.
My favourite restaurant because the food is inventive and consistently delicious!
We enjoyed the dinner and appreciated the effort during these difficult times for everyone.
We go often. Was happy to see after Covid shut down the food is still as great as ever!
Great food, great service in a great location and setting.
This was our first time dining at Cafe Carlo since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Service was excellent as always, and the staff did a fantastic job of sanitizing all dining surfaces. Social distancing is in full effect, so there are fewer tables than usual - but we found that it only added to the overall ambiance. As an added bonus, the restaurant was a little quieter than usual. It almost goes without saying that the food was delicious (I mean, look at those meals). Cafe Carlo delivers consistently wonderful food, and tonight was no exception. We hope to return soon!
Fantastic food and service. Always an excellent experience.
The food and service were excellent. Good value and a very nice atmosphere.
Awesome place Great food. Can’t wait to go back 🥂
