Was recommended from a family member. Had the Fett Chile and a glass of the house white. Both were fantastic and would highly recommend. Make reservations as this place is busy.
Like previous reviews, the Clam chowder is outstanding and definitely a must have. It’s super flavourful and thickened with cream, like it should be - not flour! The ravioli was also delicious and service was attentive but not over bearing.
Not my first visit and certainly not my last. Service was great. selection excellent. If I had a complaint it would be the food temperature. Not piping hot like usual. We were in a bit of a hurry. I would have asked for it to be heated up. It was good not the usual great.
Not enough to never return. My work counterpart from Toronto was impressed.
Great meal, terrific service....wonderful dining experience.
Fabulous as always. Loved the steak and the fett chili-our favorites. Never disappoints <3
We went to Cafe Carlos for a birthday celebration, and had a reservation made a day before. Service was excellent, the food was very good and timely served, the noise level was moderately high. The downside was our table was the one right by the front door, and the outdoor temperature was cool, so every time the door opened we got a cold draft. Another table farther from the door would have been better.
We Have loved it for years and will go again and again! Just love the place.
Was very excited to eat all the seafood. My date was cute and it was fun. Very fun. Will return very soon. Hopefully with the same date :)
Excellent fresh DELICIOUS food, excellent knowledgeable servers! LOVE Cafe Carlo every time, top notch!!
Went here for the first time and really enjoyed the service and the food. I've wanted to go to this restaurant and try it out for quite some time and I wasn't disappointed. I ordered the fish tacos and they were quite different than I've had before but were so good. My friend ordered the Mexican breakfast and it was huge and amazing! The prices are a wee bit high with not much option for lower priced items, but the food itself is worth every penny!
Loved our food as always and the waitress was lovely!!
This is my favorite restaurant in Winnipeg! Always delicious and great service!
Great lunch with friends. Met other acquaintances. Love the neighbourhood feel. Delicious food. Lingered over coffee and server offered several refills. Cafe Carlos is a regular spot for us.
Great food and great service. Exceptionally friendly and professional servers. Unique and tasty food choices at reasonable rates. My wife and I go thera couple times per year.
We went with friends to celebrate our anniversaries. We had not been in a long time as we had issues with service back then however we decided to give it a try.
Our server was friendly but we rarely saw her. It was necessary to wave her down to ask for service. The food was adequate. Red wine was served cold. Desserts were served to the wrong person who ordered.
Bathrooms were very unclean and both smelled of built up uric acid. At the end of our meal the softer music that was playing since we arrived was changed to loud, offensive rap. We got the message. We won't be back. There are many restaurants in Winnipeg that not only provide better food and service but also appreciate all clients from the beginning to end or their visit. Cafe Carlo does not from our visit.
Our waitress was very rushed!
She kept coming to our table Constantly and asking us if we were done in the meanwhile we had tons of food still left on the table she made it very non relaxing!!
She was always interrupting our conversation to ask us if we were done!
Never told us the special tacos were served cold!
I preferred it hot would not have ordered it if I knew it was served cold!
She was also very abrupt!!
Love cafe Carlos this is our first time we did not enjoy our meal or the service!
Nice atmosphere. The food and service were great. I will definitely be back.
It's a good quiet place with a cozy ambience. Had the seafood penne for dinner and I was impressed with the variety of seafoods in it but the taste was just Ok. The cream sauce was runny and I didn't quite the idea of it being put in the oven before serving as it almost burned the roof of my mouth lol. The servers are very friendly though. Wish they had something as a birthday freebie lol.
The whole experience was lovely. Had a dinner with some girl friends and we laughed together and enjoyed our pasta dishes. The fetti-Chile was delicious!! Server was very kind and attentive.
Great date night. Pricey but worth it, food was great, service on point and a cozy ambiance. Sound proofing worked wonders for the small and busy place that it is.
Great dinner. Shared some plates. More than enough. Excellent service.
Arrived early. Once they sorted out a few things we were seated prior to our reservation time. The cafe was busy so it is overall a bit noisy. The service and food was very good. I enjoyed the corn & chorizo soup ! ...it has a bit of heat, so beware if you aren’t into a bit if spice. We’ll be back !!
Our pasta dishes were both hot and delicious, seafood penne as well as the meat penne. The beet salad was full of beets, goat cheese, cucumber, tomatoes wonderful flavour. Desserts looked inviting but too full after main course, another time!
Fantastic! Bonnie took great care of us and made the evening that much better. Delicious!
Have dined here quite often. Never fails! Very, very good, with a wonderful staff.
It was an excellent evening with great tasting food! Great service and very quaint. We celebrated my daughters birthday there as her choice. Having never been myself I will definitely be back. Thank you.
This was our first time at this restaurant and the food was incredible. Loved the crab rolls. We will definitely be making a visit in the near future.
Great food served well with attentive but not intrusive wait staff.
We always enjoy going to Cafe Carlo. The food and service are always great.
You get what you pay for...fresh, tasty, and looks great on the plate.
Great food. Had to wait a bit for our table to be ready. Took a bit to get a drink at the bar but otherwise the rest of the service was great. Would highly recommend it to friends
This was our first time to Cafe Carlos and we definitely be back for more great food and service. Thanks for making our evening special.
Exceptional is about all I can say. My wife and I have been customers of Cafe Carlo for 27 years and we were as impressed last night as we were almost 3 decades ago. Fantastic.
Fantastic experience. We were seated in the back corner which allowed a good view of all the artwork. We ordered the Fish Tacos and shared The Fantasy. The Fish Taco was fantastic! Clearly restaurant made shells and tortillas with fried fish and garnished well. The Fantasy came with spring rolls and a spicy dip which was great. The Caesar salad was ok. No complaints. The Fete Chile has a really good and creamy sauce that was slightly spicy. The sauce was fantastic but the chicken a little dry. The chorizo was good. The Creme brûlée was scrumptious. We also wanted to order the Chocolate Obsession desert but ran out of time.
All in all a great dining experience.
Great service and ambience, though the food was underwhelming and in my view overpriced. After a few glasses of wine, my wife and I racked up a $125.00 bill for what turned out to be a very mediocre meal.
As usual Cafe Carlo impressed. The seafood chowder is by far the best I have ever had.
As usual the food, the service and the ambiance were spectacular! Always love taking out of town guests here for dinner. It’s a gem! Our server was absolutely divine.
The ambience provided by this local gem is worthy of the meals that it presented. Wonderful flavour, great service and lovely food pairings brought our special occasion with long lost friends back to light.
Two couples for a birthday celebration. Food was all excellent and service was terrific. Highly recommended!
