Amazing. So impressed with tasting menu and wine pairings. Blown away by each course. Romantic setting and very trendy. Will be back again multiple times
Our experience was wonderful. I was most impressed by the service and atmosphere. The food was tasty, and its quality lives up to its value. We had the short rib, which had amazing taste. However, the portion was slightly large for the flavour, which resulted to an overwhelming taste at the end. We had the cocktails - drinks were awesome. We had a good time - will definitely return.
We reserved a table to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had chosen this restaurant because I found the menu interesting. I especially appreciated that the list was not too long and well balanced. The experience in the restaurant was remarkable both for the service and the food. We choose the tasting dishes and decided to try the wine pairing. Every dish was very much enjoyed for their presentation, their taste and the creativity of the chef. We'll be back!
Delicious and fun food in a relaxed environment. Love supporting this local family restaurant that's haute but not snobby.
The service was great and the food (as always) terrific.
They couldn’t accommodate my partner’s vegan restriction and we were told that she or I could then not order the tasting menu. This was the reason we went and were left feeling very disappointed. The dishes we did order were well presented but lacking in depth of flavour and overly salty.
Excellent ambiance, incredible food and wine: simply amazing.
Highly recommend the beef short ribs and the chocolate tart.
-super small portions - expensive
Amazing 8 course chefs dinner. The food was absolutely perfect, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive serving staff, and beautiful cocktails for an overall perfect night. We will be back for sure.
Food was incredible as was the service. Great little restaurant in a great location.
Always a treat to go to Carben, our server Meredith was perfect, the food is art on a plate, thanks again for a great evening!
Amazing value for the 8 course tasting menu and wine pairing! You will not be disappointed , trust me :)
Amazing, flavourful and creative food.
I genuinely have never felt so drawn into a restaurant experience. I can't recommend this place enough... it's beyond stunning, the food was unlike anything I've ever had, and the music fit the vibe perfectly. Best brunch I've ever had the pleasure of eating.
It's not our first time dining here and it won't be our last. Food is always amazing, and innovative and beautifully plated. But the service is also great and personal while staying professional. Oh and drinks are always great.
The service was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. I’ve always really wanted to love Carben but the food is always really underwhelming for the price.
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 :)
Amazing server and beautifully crafted courses! Would definitely go again in a special ocassion.
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.
Really good food, service was excellent. Ambiance is cozy and energy is good
A moderate choice selection on the menu but the food was prepared with exceptional presentation and creativity. The tastes and spicing effectively complemented the food choices and the serving sizes were sensible.
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
It was a set menu and we did not know what to expect. Absolutely delicious.
Wonderful meal! Excellently service. Never disappoints.
Beautifully arranged food on gorgeous locally-made plates that's also creative & delicious, & a laid-back, pleasant atmosphere. Also, tasty cocktails!
Great food, great service, great vibe. Recommended.
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.
Carben was a very nice discovery. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. The variety of tastes made the meal memorable. Fantastic service from beginning to end. We are looking forward to returning.
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.
