Great service and as usual food was great. Brunch was wonderful. We may go there for the pop overs but we come back for the rest of the food and the service.

The waiter had just the right attentiveness. Manhattans were made right and delicious, unlike many restaurant's. Lamb lollipops are an outstanding treat and I loved my halibut and cous cous. Chef is very talented and well worth a visit or many.

Everything was wonderful for our visit for brunch. As constructive criticism I ordered the french toast which could have used more sauce and a bit more fruit. Otherwise, delicious.

Food was great as was the ambiance ... but our waiter even though he was very good, had a loud voice and at times was annoying. The dining room was also very loud. But overall experience was great and I hope to return.

My friend had the Chicken and Waffles..amazing... just the right amount of sweet and savory..My cocktail was delicious...Tito's with the blueberry simple syrup, mint and lemon..can't recall the name but it was awesome..Cannot wait to try dinner entrees...overall lovely dining experience. .

I loved the food. The oysters were cold, the Caesar salad the best and the grilled Halibut done to perfection. The service was excellent. I could not ask for a better night out.

We ate there last night with friends for an enjoyable evening. Loved the apple salad appetizer. The guys had raw oysters and steamed clams. Waiter informed us they were out of veal and lamb which were on the menu {we had decided we wanted the veal Marsala} otherwise the entrees were good. Just plain good to be out for some fine dining!

The restaurant was not too busy and our table location downstairs was perfect. We were happy to be inside in the air conditioning on a hot evening. The servers were very attentive with 2 others assisting Evan. The food was delicious with an attractive presentation, particularly the whiskey sour cocktail, the oysters and the veal marsala. We were happy that popovers are still part of the menu! While the salmon was perfectly prepared, I did not care for the mustard greens. We were disappointed the halibut was not available, especially so early in the evening and it was one of the specials. The chocolate cake dessert was outstanding. Overall, we had an excellent experience and look forward to our next dinner at Carte Blanche.

A Friday dinner date and going toCarte Blanche made it special. The restaurant has several areas to sit so am sure experiences will vary on ambience. We loved decor, staff was incredibly accommodating and gracious. Menu unique and preparations are outstanding. Also rare to find a local place with fresh oysters, unique mignonette. Coming back to try brunch.
