    Thanksgiving Turkey was dry and brittle. The best part of the meal was Pumpkin Cheesecake. I am wondering if I have ended up paying the $98 twice. Once I made the reservations and second at the restaurant after dinner. However, I will check the credit card statements before making any claims.

    Carve is one of our favorite places for Happy Hour. We only sit at the bar and enjoy ourselves. Thanksgiving was different. We were able to sit at the Bar. We have had other meals there and you can not beat their steaks. With the amount of people there and 99.9 percent getting Thanksgiving dinner it is tough. I will have to say this that the Turkey was over cooked and the mash potatoes were cold. That is all that I have to say.

    After dining at Carve previously and finding the food to be wonderful, we had high expectations for the Thanksgiving dinner. What a disappointment. The turkey was overcooked, the dressing was barely done, and our entire plates of food were cold. To Carve’s credit, they replaced both plates but the food was still cool and just not as good as we had anticipated. And our server and the assistant manager were very accommodating. But for almost $200, and a 45 minute drive to get there, Carve was a total Thanksgiving loss. We will go back to Carve for steak—never again for turkey.

    Was looking forward to wonderful meal. Noticed plates at tables next to us with our planned entree and looked great. When our plates were served, meal looked different ( food haphazardly thrown on plate), was semi warm, turkey was dry. We were very disappointed.

    We came for the thanksgiving family meal and we’re severely disappointed. Dry turkey, loud setting, and inattentive service. Perhaps it was the holiday making them so busy, but we felt bamboozled to pay expensive prices for mediocre food.

    This is still our favorite place to eat out. Amazing food and great staff members take care of us. A bit slower service than normal but nothing to get worked up about. The noise level has become an issue when we are trying to chat privately. There are no breakfronts from any table so it's been a rowdy dining experience the last 3 times. But overall it's a fantastic place to eat!

    Really nice ambiance and setting. Was a bit disapointed in the food. The fillet mignon was burnt and crispy on the outside and the bacon was charred. However, the mashed potatoes were delicious. The waitress was fairly slow to take our order. It has the potential to be a great place to eat if they could just improve on a few items.

    We went for dinner because I really wanted the Cedar Plank Red Fish. The Sabine Rosé was very nice and very representative of French Rosé. We started with the Spinach Artichoke Dip which is very tasty and has a little kick to it. Next was the Applewood grilled beet salad with radicchio, grapefruit, pomegranate and creamy feta spread. The feta spread really makes this salad delicious. The Cedar Plank Fired Red Fish was very good but had a bit too much topping/sauce on it.

    this is my first time to come however, I wasn’t really impressed. As were eating lunch, we have the constant noise of silverware being wrapped in a napkin right behind my head. I am normally not a cold person. However the air air condition was set to a frigid below zero. the waiter overall was good. Waiter did ask if it was her first time to die in there and it was.  however, the waiter went into too much detail on the menu. The menu is very simple. We started with the appetizer, the cauliflower sticks,hey were flavorful with a little bit of spice. we ordered a wedge salad, however, for the price it could’ve been split as well as the portion. The main course I got the lunch sampler the salmon was phenomenal. The Wagyu beef cupcake was terrible, and the other smaller things on the plate were very good however, the two potatoes were literally roasted and flopped on the plate. Nothing special, what I come back maybe to try a steak. Is it worth the price not at all..

    The truffle pot pie was amazing. The place is pretty dark and loud but nicely decorated. Went with no reservation at 6:30pm and was told they had nothing except the bar which was packed. The hostess was rude and I even asked if I could get on a waitlist for a cancelation (for 2 people) she said I could if I wanted to wait for over 2 hours. There were many open tables outside so I walked outside and instantly was able to made an OpenTable reservation for 5 minutes walked inside showed my reservation and was seated. It’s sad the hostess made no efforts to keep my business but thank goodness for OpenTable. Our server was outstanding. The food was not worth the price except that pot pie and the bread tower!

    My husband and I were there for Veterans Day. His steak was perfect with a delicious dipping sauce on a bed of grilled onions and an artistic mountain of mashed potatoes beside it. We shared a plate of popovers with garlic butter. These were HUGE & soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. I got the beet, feta, grapefruit salad with pine nuts and a bowl of chicken vegetable soup with a sprig of rosemary on top. Both were delicious and beautifully prepared.

    We had a great experience and enjoyed our meal immensely. Hayley’s service was fantastic, we did not have to wait for anything, she was very attentive and also helped lot immensely with items for one of our dinners with a vegan diet. The portions are large and everything comes out fresh and at the proper temperature and time.
