Extremely bad service. I had chicken, my food was okay. A guy who took my order. They never come to fill up my water. I asked him to get the cheque for me. He came to the table next to me to bring their food but didn’t bring mine. After waiting for sometimes I finally went to the reception and he said he forgot (but no apologies) and left me with the machine to pay with cc and never showed up after that. My total was $31.64 but the machine was showing about $37 which I have paid $37 and left.

I came here with my wife. I ordered the prix fix menu which was a good value. I really enjoyed the escargot pastry and my steak was prepared perfectly. The service here was top notch. Thumbs up!

Outstanding meal - every course from the garlic bread & dill pickles straight through to dessert. The attention to detail of the servers was appreciated. The steaks were cooked to perfection & were melt-in-your mouth tender. I would absolutely recommend to try Carmen's out!

Overall it was a great experience. Our drinks were solid, the steaks excellent, and sides superb. The only drawback was a smell of incense (I think) that came on very strong towards the end of our meal. The roaring fire was a nice touch throughout.

The staff was super friendly and the food was prepared perfectly. Very unique atmosphere and had great first impressions by the hostess as well as any staff we encountered while being led to our table. Excellent and positive experience. I've gotta try the fillet before I leave town :)

Sitting on the terrace with a great bottle of wine, and good service made this an enjoyable but not memorable meal. The service was very good however the price fixe menu and the food presentation did not have any 'wow' factor.

Fix menu was out of steak and it was a slow Monday night still we have informed about it when we r ordering so everybody had to think again. All of us got sick of onion soup had a long night digesting. Still the main courses were delicious but will hardly go again

Rain out of the food ordered, forgot to serve complimentary garlic bread, comments on sides picked. Poured wine into glasses without seeing if what was ordered by one person was for all. Very expensive, steak was not overly tender for the price. The only thing this restaurant had going for it was the atmosphere.

The maitre d' is a pompous, unfriendly guy, the decor a bit otherworldly. Steaks are great. The Ceasar needs improvement in size; and please cut up the anchovy.

First time at Carmen's, furnishings very dark, low lighting. Fireplace for winter warmth. Place has been there for a long time. Food was good, service was great. Had 10 oz Strip-loin, was OK, not fantastic, wife's Filet Mignon was excellent (thicker cut of meat), however meal was good. Dessert was excellent. Pretty good overall.
