An old adobe house with beautiful gardens, houses one of Carmel's most romantic restaurants. Its Celebrity Room has photos of the celebrities who have dined there; the French Provencal Harvest Room has charm; the Milagro Room has a working fireplace; and, the outdoor patio has the shade of a Brazilian pepper tree. Try the Pan-seared Filet of Salmon served with pasta. The wine cellar holds more than 30,000 bottles of wine, some costing more than the average house. The restaurant regularly wins the Wine Spectator 's Grand Award. With unparalleled service for tourists and locals, it is highly recommended.
Although the ambiance is charming, the 3 course fixed price dinner menu lacks creativity, taste, & appeal, but is high on pricing. My spouse's $35 TINY half chicken breast was dismal, w a poor accompaniment of sour veggies. My 3 mini cannelloni would have been ok at a local pizza place for $12. At $34., it was ridiculous. The 1st course appetizer-to-be-shared: 5 tiny black olives, 2 hard green olives, cold rice, 3 spears cold asparagus, poor quality breadsticks, 1 white bread roll, & tomato dipping sauce, was not tasty. Casonova's lost its touch 25 years ago. It only stays in business because of tourists, who come once, leave Carmel, & never return. If the rest't had to survive on locals, it would be out of business. It is VERY overpriced w substandard food. IT'S WAY PAST ITS PRIME.
I've been going to this restaurant since I was a kid and it has never dissappointed. One feels like they have been transplanted to provincial France. The food is great, only matched by the service. Highly recommended for a romantic night away.
Casanova is a fine restaurant with prices to match. The ambience is great. The staff are first rate and the wine cellar is truly outstanding. The sea bass at $45 was excellent, but overpriced. I had mussels and pommes frittes for $33. The muscles were plump and meaty in a subtle broth, and the pommes frittes were just fun to eat. Excellent restaurant with prices to match. Bring your credit card and your appetite. Make a reservation.
Incidentally, the Casanova folks also own La Bicyclette, (nee La Boheme) which I recommend skipping. It is not in the same gustatory league as Casanova, and it is too damned noisy. Whoever thought loud music stimulated conversation and appetite?
Tucked away behind the facade of a cottage from Provence, sits Casanova. An ambiance of charm and grace assaults the senses. Aromas of nature and food give a hint of the epicurian experience you will soon embark upon.
I love it... small... off the main drag... cute... well decorated... with great sandwiches at lunch and breakfast entrees... a place locals go which always speaks well for any restaurant... friendly... good value...
