We ordered drinks at the piano bar and ordered a few appetizers. It was barely 30 minutes and they called us... More

It's not because is Clint Eastwood's property but the place is a must visit. The views over the land are amazing! The food is actually good and prices are not that high. It could be much more expensive to be honest. I order the seafood Cioppino and it was delicious, though they could have put more expensive type of seafood... More

This place is clearly very popular and not without reason. Hubby and I arrived around 4pm and had to wait (as did many others) about 2 hours before a table became ready. No biggie though; we enjoyed a couple of champagnes enjoying the lovely vista and just taking everything in. We were eventually seated outdoors and given it was winter... More

We ate here for brunch and let me tell you it was wonderful. The food, the scenery, the staff, and the pianist did not disappoint. This place is a must if you are in Carmel.

Traveled to the area to play in a golf tournament and enjoyed an amazing dining experience. We had to wait a little while but it was more than worth it as the staff was as amazing as the dinner. Highly recommend you visit if you are in the area. If you love history you will love this setting.

This appears to be a very popular place, and is a bit busy and noisy for my taste. The food and service is excellent and it is convenient if you are staying at mission ranch.

Sitting on the patio in the late afternoon is the perfect way to relax and this is place to do it with some nice wine or cocktails with coastal views and sheep grazing in the pastures below. You have to be there at 4pm and be patient though if you wish to eat rather than just enjoy a drink

Ate here for New Year's Eve. We were expecting a long wait but were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent as always. We enjoyed the piano bar- lots of fun!
