Service sucked and our server abandoned us for quite some
time. The food was very cold and we ordered pasta. overall disappointing!
Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. Delicious food and portions are a great size too.
Noise level was due to a very loud table near us. Server tried hard but struggled to open a wine bottle, served pizza at room temperature even after we asked to reheat…..
Aside from service, ‘special’ wine in menu was unavailable…….
Found the food specials - especially the Branzino to be nothing special. Covered in a thick red pasted of tomatoes and olives that completely overpowered the fish. Veggies were mush or dry-(potatoes). While it seemed like a good spot, I wouldn’t send people there on purpose.
Birthday dinner was just ok
It’s a nice restaurant, but the staff was short handed over the Labor Day weekend. Our server was doing her best, but it was taking longer for the service due to the overall shorthandednes.
Service was ABOMINABLE. A simple pizza for my husband and pasta for me took 95 minutes. I understand staffing is a problem but when, after the wait, the food arrives lukewarm??? That’s ridiculous. Will stuck to door dash from now on
We often go here! Great food and ambience!
It was good but not great. The branzino was covered in a tomato paste sauce that really took away from the quality of the fish. The steak was tough and over-cooked. The chicken was awesome so that was a plus. The waiter, while somewhat new, was excellent.
Second time here! This is my new favorite restaurant in Carmel. The outdoor patio is magic.
The food is great! However, the service was awful. We felt like the wait staff forgot that we were there. We had to wave down the bus boy to get our drink order 20 min after sitting. The waitress came about 5 minutes later. We ran out of water and had to wave her down again to get us water. Had she been more attentive other than just standing by the cooking area talking to coworkers she would have seen that we needed drinks. She seems like a nice person just needs more training.
Pizza and salad were tasteless. Soggy crust and globs of pesto on top…nothing on heap of lettuce but several strawberries
Table service was above average and the food was great. One of my favorite restaurants in Carmel and we can walk there from our lodging.
Excellent food and service!
The food and service at this restaurant was fabulous. However they allowed to big dogs to be seated inside near us. One of the dogs kept barking the other dog was being petted by the owner and white hair was flying around. The put a water bowl down for the dog and water was getting on the floor. No problem seating dogs outside the restaurant but not inside! Just not sanitary, that was a major disappointment.
Great service. Good food. Wonderful friends.
Pizza is always good at il Fornaio.
Made a reservation for outdoor. At arrival we were told only indoor was available. Ordered appetizers and entree. After a while they came back to tell that they ran out of potatoes. I ordered a different entree. Then they brought appetizers at the same time as entree. We asked them to serve entree after appetizers. They also to forgot to bring bread with appetizers although menu indicated came with bread. When they brought entrees second time, food was stone cold. Probably just had been sitting on the counter. Finally, did not get any refill of cokes. Not my usual experience of dining in Il Fornaio at other locations.
Dinner for 7 family members. Meeting in Carmel for Car week. Most enjoyed their meal except me. Had the worst Caesar salad & salmon that I have ever had in my Life! Salmon was in 4 thin rubber pieces, tasteless & salad was a small pile of leftover romaine!
Rose was an awesome server and food was delicious as it has been the last 18 years that we have come for the Concours De Elegance
Great to have you back.
Horrible service and management didn’t care
The service was awful. Waiter put out order in late, 3 other tables received their food before us even though they arrived much after. The waiter also tried to serve us a second salad after we had finished the one we ordered. The rest of the staff were equally as rude and inattentive. Love this restaurant and have been coming for years, but not sure I’ll be back.
Had to send two entrées back. They were dry and cool.
Visiting Carmel. Had pizza takeout for lunch there and then went back for dinner. Friendly staff, good food, great location.
Great food and great ambiance. Looking forward to returning soon.
First off, dogs are welcome inside the restaurant. A health code violation, not enforced. Not all people in Carmel like eating with dogs. Everything else was okay.
Wonderful evening! Delicious italian food!
Lobster special was anything but special, it was horrible. Lobster looked and tasted like it had been cooked twice. Pasta was flavorless. Ranked up there with Denny’s quality.
Food was surprisingly not good. We have been eating there for years and it's never been like this. Other tables were commenting on the food quality as well. This is usually a terrific restaurant with a good reputation, it just wasn't a good night for them in a town with lots of options.
We go to Il Fornaio regularly because it is an absolutely predictable and consistent experience. We love the room and the veranda (when open) - one of the bigger rooms in Carmel and possibly the biggest bar for walk-in seating. The food is always very good and the service is always attentive and efficient. And - for Carmel - a relative value.
The meal was served promptly and everything was good. Our server, Salvador, the best. However, I must give my compliments to the chef on behalf of my wife for the lasagna. It was delicious and brought back memories of the lasagna that my Italian grandmother, from Bologna, prepared for the family. Last, but not least, the mango panna cotta was also excellent. Do save some room for this tasty and delicate dessert. Grazie mille per la indimenticabile e favolosa cena!
Appetizer didn’t have all ingredients listed in menu description. Puttanesca was below average. Waitress gave us wrong bill from another customer.
Nothing as expected, the prices are pretty good for Carmel, but it’s not worth it. Flavourless and careless food.
We enjoy Il fornaio and have been going for years. There is so much potential for Carmel’s Il Fornaio. They have a great location, beautiful restaurant, wonderful menu, great wine list.
They have a gorgeous outdoor patio that can add to the ambiance, if they would only utilize it by setting the tables properly and setting up a bar area like Vesuvios rooftop. They need additional training where they serve by “team” a la Hillstone restaurant method. Wine dinners and music would draw in a lively crowd.
I'm never disappointed with II Fornaio when visiting Carmel.
Always great food and wonderful service, their window boxes are also fabulous. The Gnocchi is the best!
I suppose being short staffed would be the reason for such a long time waiting for food like hour? Front desk help were not very friendly. To young to understand .
Came here with my son during a vacation. We ordered both appetizer and dessert along with our entrees which is unusual for us but we enjoyed it tremendously. Service was good, food was a little slow coming out but she kept letting us know she hadn’t forgotten about us.
