The views of course are amazing. We were expecting an exceptional dining experience, but were disappointed with our server’s cold and short interaction. Food was served/passed across guests, and the food server had to ask who had what. Our head server never checked to see if we had everything and the Nutella pancakes were half eaten before we were able to flag her down for the missing Nutella and then she just placed it and left without any apologies or further check-in. Little things like that that are easy to fix and telltale signs of experienced and quality service. Additionally, we were incorrectly charged for items on our bill. We will go back, and hopefully have a better experience.

I specifically noted on my reservation that it was 1) my wife’s birthday, and 2) that it was also the 1 year anniversary of my proposal to her where we ate at Pacific’s Edge immediately after. Additionally, I requested a table along the window. Midweek leading up to the reservation, I called the restaurant to confirm all of this and they said no problem. Then, the day before the reservation, I received a phone call from the restaurant saying that they had a table along the window and that they saw it was for a birthday and proposal anniversary.

Arrived at the restaurant for dinner, no table along the window, no acknowledgment of my wife’s birthday, nor of our proposal there one year prior. A nonchalant attitude by the hostess was not appreciated either.

We came from Phoenix, AZ for this occasion. Truly disappointed.

The manager comped our meal approximately ~65% off, which was appreciated however.

Last time there. Period.

The view is spectacular and the food was delicious. The only reason this is not a 5 star review is the menu is a bit overpriced for what you get. Definitely a special occasion restaurant. You can get the views without the price tag in the bar area.

When one is in the Carmel, CA area, you must go the PACIFIC EDGE. The food is outstanding
and the setting sun is spectacular. The rack of lamb was "out of this world".

We come here every time we vacation in Carmel. Love the fantastic view of the big sur coastline. Sunset here is beautiful. The food is wonderful too. We like the ambiance of the restaurant. Our meals have always been outstanding. I had the roasted brussel sprouts for an appetizer and the salmon which was very delicious. I shared the chocolate peanut butter mousse cake. Definitely worth the calories as it was delicious. My husband had the brussel sprouts for the appetizer also and really enjoyed them. He had the scallops for his main course. Again he said that they were wonderful . Would definitely recommend this restaurant for the food and the fantastic view

We were guests of the hotel had been here a few days prior for an expensive dinner (bottle of wine, appetizers, entrees, dessert and dessert wine), celebrated our anniversary here and decided we wanted ‭to come back for dessert and wine on our last night in town.

I made reservations on opentable just in case and when we got there the manager sat us. When we told one of the servers we only wanted dessert and wine, our waiter came over and told us we weren’t welcome to sit at the table for that and needed to go over to the bar if that’s all we were ordering. My husband and I were extremely embarrassed as fellow diners were staring at us. We quickly got up and approached the manager who told us that was not true and Sat us back down. She took care of the bill and apologized, but it ruined our evening and the last night of our vacation. We were so embarrassed and irritated that we couldn’t enjoy the view or the delicious dessert.

It had been years since we had been to this restaurant. Always loved going and decided to try it again since we were in Carmel for a week. The menu was limited and overpriced. Not a large or varied selection. Portions were very small, especially in light of the pricing. Our waiter seemed less than enthusiastic that we were there. All in all, a waste of time. However, the ocean views are spectacular.

My Son and his new Bride went for their first dinner. They were able to get a nice table with a spectacular view. Food was really good. The filet and rack of lamb were perfect. The service was attentive and focused on their special occasion. This is definitely a destination resturant.

We have been here before many times. It is a beautiful restaurant and food is good. However, this time I was very disappointed. My family took me here for Mother's Day brunch. I felt this meal was extremely over priced. $85/per person for a Buffett? The selection was decent but by no means $85 worth! And not including drinks? In addition, nothing for the moms to make us feel special. The waiter and hostess never even said Happy Mither's Day! I would think for this price - at least a little more customer service? Very disappointed this time.

the view of the restaurant was terrific, overlooking the ocean and sunset. I had my dinner and breakfast in the restaurant, the service was not that good. When I was standing in the entrance, I saw one lady was complaining the service, and went away immediately. I recommend the scenic view, but the good and service was just okay!

If you're staying at Highlands Inn then it's convenient and the view is nice. The food was very good, but it was not a $350 dinner (two starters, two entrees, and one bottle of wine).

I have had mixed reviews in the past, but for the last two years Pacific's Edge has come through just as requested. My wife and I try to get to Carmel for our anniversary. This year (our 36th anniversary) I again had requested that champagne be ready at arrival when I made the reservation. We were seated immediately and I asked the waiter if my message was received and they said they were taking care of it. Within moments the champagne arrived. The waiter was attentive and made just the right amount of engagement throughout the meal. BIG THANKS to Pacific's Edge. Keep the great customer service up! We will see you next year.

What raises this experience to the Outstanding level is the location. High above, on the coast line, with exquisite views of the ocean and the forests which abut it, there is no restaurant in Carmel which offers anything like this view. Perfection!
