I would have to agree with the other reviews-not the place to go. We went to the newly opened location off Redwood Highway, North of Santa Rosa. The decor was nice, the service wasn't bad but the food was awful. The lamb burger was like rubber and even the beef burgers were bad. My kids did think the bathrooms were cleverly decorated but that was about the only positive point. I would definately skip this place in the future.
This place, where do I start. By not going there ever again! I have been to Carmen's 4 times in the past year, not by choice, but because friends pick it. Was just there this afternoon for almost 2 hours for lunch. The service is HORRIBLE, the wait staff is inatentive and the food is so-so. I swore to myself very loudly today while sitting at the table waiting for 30 minutes for a refill on my water, that I will NEVER go back there.
Good hand made Burgers with BIG Grey goose vodka martinis (3 olives) at Noon. Full bar! Leave the kids with friends for a few hours. Take the day off, you're gonn'a need a siesta after lunch here. Simple decor, brightly painted walls with bold graphics. Practically picnic table furniture. Nice servers. Burgers & Booze!
