We enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner at Carben. We ordered the chef’s special and wine pairings. Every dish was a delight for the eyes and the mouth. We were there on their last night open before they had to close due to the pandemic. I look forward to visiting again when they re-open!

This was a great pick! The food, service, drinks and ambiance was spot on. My partner and I did the Chef tasting menu with the wine pairing and it did not disappoint. Very satisfied.

The tasting menu is extraordinary. We particularly enjoyed the duck tartar, wood ear mushrooms and the scallops. We had a bottle of a delicious Gruner Veltliner from Austria with it rather than the flight of wines and found it went very well, we added a glass of red to go with the last course but that was just being greedy.

We came here for the first time last week on a Tuesday when they had the 2 for 1 large plates (with the purchase of 2 alcoholic drinks). We ordered a 3 small plates to start, 2 large plates and a dessert to share. We were impressed buy the creativity of each dish and the plating is phenomenonal. Overall great food and we were very full with a bit of takeout left over! Our favourite from each was the albacore tuna small plate, scallops large plate and pineapple express dessert! Would come back again :)

We did the blind tasting for two - we thought we would be served the same, however, surprised when we were each given something different to try. Enjoyed with the wine pairing - very nice selections.

The food was average - nothing to write home about. The noise level was so high it was difficult to have a conversation. My bill came up to $140.00 (incl. tip) which, as far as I’m concerned, is money down the drain. I don’t mind paying that much when the food is good but when it’s average , it’s insulting. The three of us said we would’t go back to Carben.

We were excited to try Carben based on write-ups and reviewing the menu. One of our party chose this restaurant over others because of the octopus appetizer. While the menu lists "Small plates" and "Large plates" these are not meant for sharing so are a misnomer. Carben needs to re-name to Appetizers and Entrees. Food was good but portions were disappointingly small. That said, my duck was delicious and of good portion. The other three at the table did not feel the same. This is a place for a nice lunch rather than the celebratory dinner out we had hoped it would be.

Was our third visit, firstvvwas awesome, second was ok, this time, presentation was not there,,no imagination. Looked More like they were trying to show off the beautiful plates by pushing the food all to the end of one side of the plate are usually bring my own Peppermill because I like my pepper but I had forgotten it that night I was shocked to find out they don't have pepper mills haven't seen that happen in maybe 20 years not likely to go bad or recommend

Interesting food, but portions were small for the price. Appreciated the mocktails as well as the accommodation for dietary restriction. Liked the fact that it was warm in the restaurant for a cold day and all of the windows in the restaurant.

Loved. loved, loved the food! The ambiance was great. We didn't have to yell at each other to have a conversation and the tables are far enough apart that we weren't sharing our conversation inadvertently with our neighbours and vice versa. Prices in keeping with other restaurants of the same calibre. My only 'issue' was that our server was a bit too 'in our faces' ... he was trying to connect but overdid it. I didn't go there to talk to him.

very good, non run of the mill food, with great flavour and texture, using not the usual ingredients. Knowledgeable and attentive service. Good wine list.
Noise level quite high

Was looking forward to this evening but menu was pretty limiting and food was served at lukewarm temperatures. We ordered all large plates and shared and walked away unimpressed - nothing stood out. Atmosphere is sparse and a bit pretentious.

A wonderful first time experience. My partner and I each had the five course tasting menu and were surprised that we each received an entirely different menu, allowing us to effectively share ten different dishes. We can't wait to return.

We had the tasting menu. I think the fish and the ribs were the best dishes that day. The duck tartare was not the greatest, but maybe it’s just my preference. Not sure if it wasn’t as fresh as it should be or the spices were slightly off. The squash dish was a bit meh and bland, but again perhaps it’s just my preference. The space is very pleasant and inviting. I would give this place another chance but I don’t think I would go for the tasting menu again. The service was OK, but I think they do better if the table is less than 3-4 people. It becomes difficult for them to coordinate the dishes if there are more than 5 people. The highlight of the dinner was the desert: a citrusy popsicle with some merengue: truly spectacular. Overall, while the place did not take my breath away, I think it may be worth a second look.

Excellent New Year's Eve 5 course blind tasting menu. Great value for the variety and quality of the dishes served. All dishes were excellent and served in a timely manner. Optional wine tasting was also excellent and we were able to share the glass between two people since it was quite a bit of wine. Servers were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Overall a very enjoyable evening and we plan to return at some future date.

A menu full of very interesting and innovative dishes. We shared the albacore tuna and the wood ear mushrooms and I have to say, these were some of the best small plates I’ve ever had! The smoked wood ear mushrooms are like nothing I’ve tasted before. All of our mains (scallops, lamb, short ribs) were also phenomenal!

Both couples have been to Carben’s before and decided that from our past experiences this is where we wanted to dine. We weren’t disappointed, our table as waiting for us and the service was excellent.
The appetizers were outstanding, we shared the calamari and our friends shared the tuna. The main courses offered an excellent selection. This does change as the seasons change. At the end the plates were all empty and we all had just enough room to share one of their unique deserts - amazing.
The wine selection and drink menu was very extensive with a great selection
Recommendation - we will be back.

The food was overpriced for what it was. Also, I have food sensitivities that they said they could accommodate when I booked over the phone. When dealing with the waiter, he was mostly annoyed (in fact even joked about what it was that I couldn't eat) and didn't even come back to tell me what it was that the kitchen could do to accommodate it. It just came.
