Been to this restaurant a few times now and really like the way you can order! Being able to use ipads and see pics of the food you want to eat make it really easy to make your decision. I haven't tried everything but the items I've had have been really good. Cocktails are good too :) Def fun concept-just be prepared that everything adds up if you order slowly...$. It's a little dark inside but fun place-esp for girls night :)

Carmel Café in Carrollwood is a consistently pleasant place to eat. I've had brunch, lunch and dinner there. The food is tasty and the portions are reasonable. Menu selection is adequately diverse. Service has always been attentive but not overbearing. Ambience is warm and comfortable. Overall, I would give it a B+.

We don't live particularly close to this restaurant; received a coupon from a car dealership. Visited on a Sunday evening and it was not busy, got seated right away. The iPad menu was a nice touch, once we got used to it, and although we also used the paper menus, we eventually started ordering items directly from the tablet. The waitress was quick to respond either way. We sampled the Chickpea Fries and a flatbread app, both of which were tasty and interesting. We split the Steak Frites and the Sausage and Broccolini Ravioli, both of which were also very good. Finished up with the poached pear dessert, and my wife had a pear specialty cocktail. The prices were very reasonable, and the portions worked out well (tapas style). Even though we are about 30 minutes away from the restaurant, if we are anywhere in the vicinity I would definitely revisit for the quality of food, reasonable prices, and good service.

Went to lunch at Carmel and it was wonderful. Had the turkey sandwich and cup of lobster bisque and my friend had vegetable plate and butternut squash soup. Both were properly cooked and delish! Loved the iPad menu. You could either order the normal way (which the wait staff inputs into the iPad) or you can look at the pictures of the dish and pick what you want from the iPad. We were able to summon out waitress with a button on the iPad. Way cool!

Went for the $4 happy hour specials with my fiance. Although the $4 options are limited on the menu, still a great place for happy hour or dinner. They have a great selection of local craft beers and their small plates were unique and delicious. Coolest part about this place is that you order everything from an iPad whenever you want it and it just comes out a few minutes later. Highly recommend.
