Situated in New Orleans' charming Arts District, Carmo is a tropical restaurant, bar and cultural center with a commitment to providing fresh, flavorful, healthy and affordable dishes in a warm, friendly and casual atmosphere. Chef Dana Honn's menu is built upon the rich, multi-cultural culinary influences found throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America, West Africa, Southeast Asia, Gulf South and beyond, featuring eclectic and traditional/traditionally-inspired dishes with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, as well as unique and little-known flavors from around the world. “Origins to table” is the term Honn uses to describe the narratives of the dishes, connecting ingredients to food traditions and ultimately the people who originally created those traditions. From our fresh local seafood and produce to heritage and organic meats, Carmo caters to vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians and omnivores alike.

    Out of items already at 7 pm on a weekday, cocktails had to be sent back for missing ingredients, service was spotty (ran out of water twice, had to ask); on the positive side, the food was very good and location excellent. We’ll try again based on the reputation of the chef and the food we did get.

    A great space but the vibe was disrupted by a large group that was having a Christmas gift opening session. For some reason, the music was turned off so all we could hear was their party. Ordering the food was confusing as it wasn’t clear if we had a server or was doing this online. Some of the dishes were good and others were too salty. There could be more balance. would not recommend this place or return.

    We had an enjoyable dinner of fresh, vegetable focused delicious dishes at Carmo. There were many choices for vegetarian and gluten free diners. The cormo salad was tasty and filling. We shared plates of Brazilian cheese bread made with tapioca and the cocktails featured South American spirits like cachaca. The restaurant was spacious, has a large bar and accommodated our group of six easily. It was a welcome change from the heavy creole and Cajun dishes on other menus.

    Great experience! Nice laid back atmosphere with some nice artwork on the walls. Picnic tables are the main seating, which are not very comfortable after a while, but they work for the space. Food was great! I had the beans and rice with vegan sausage and it was excellent. Definitely worth a return trip.

    Charming restaurant with a focus on Latin American food. Anywhere from Peruvian to Puerto Rico -not exactly elevated but extremely well done. on the comfort side. Make sure you get the desserts which are made in-house. I had a baby apple pie, which was so outstanding that I was tempted to order a second one. Very pleasant room, modern style and at least on that night. Notably quiet which seems unusual these days for restaurants. they have a nice modest- priced little wine list. They also have a local made Porcher on tap which is fantastic. Bottom line: nice restaurant with tasty food. I would definitely go again and highly recommend it.

    I’m vegan, and I was pleasantly surprised when I found Carmo. I had the Esmeralda salad, sweet potato fritters and poa de queijo, which were all vegan. The salad was amazing! I highly recommend. I als highly recommend the poa de queijo. The fritter were good but I liked the other two more. For desert, I had the chocolate pecan cake with raspberry sauce. That was also amazing. The food came really quickly. The waitresses were all pleasant and made great recommendations. I went for dinner and it wasn’t very loud. Great decor. I would go back.

    It was 10 or more minutes once seated before we were addressed regarding water drinks etc. the staff were plentiful yet busy with other activities not related to service of the guests. We were not offered A second round of drinks or dessert and the one water refill came at the end of the meal. It was very disappointing after our last visit was so lovely. If working on Christmas eve is not desired I wish they had just closed. We felt as if we were interrupting their night as opposed to being welcomed.

    Too many tables for one server. Entrees arrived at different times. Food was well described and good quality. Server was overcommitted and unable to timely respond to requests. This is a management failure. Will try again in six months, maybe.
    CarmoResponded on December 26, 2022
    Failure accepted. We have a great staff. Christmas week is always difficult for staffing, but in the context of the staffing crisis the restaurant industry is undergoing currently, it is that much worse. So, when someone calls in sick, we're left with the unfortunately choice of either canceling reservations, or trying to honor them, which is what we always try to do. That requires some patience on the part of the public, so we certainly appreciate your willingness to return in the future.

    Incredible flavors, well-prepared offerings to impress colleagues who were visiting New Orleans from Sao Paolo. Made a reservation in advance and had a great table. Server was very polite and suggested many dishes on the menu but brought the check before asking if we wanted another round of drinks or dessert. Quite strange for a Tuesday night that wasn't busy.

    Terrible staff who could care less- our appetizer was delivered to the table and the waitress still had not even taken our main food order. We finished the entire thing, and then had to ask another member of staff to please send the waitress. She finally shows up and says “sorry I was gone for a little while” it has been over 20 minutes 🙈 food was pretty good actually, but the portions are tiny and everything is so overpriced for what it is.. A $19 poke bowl was the tiniest little portion. I thought it was a joke. I consumed the whole plate in 2.5 minutes. We all 4 left at the end and went somewhere else for a small meal because we were all still hungry. I hate to say it- but we will not be returning.
