Small table next to a window. It was freezing and dark. Slow service to start. Asked for extra plate as we were sharing. Given a small sAlad plate. Salad was good. Steak had way too much sauce.

Service was rather slow. We didn’t see our waiter often. Food was average. We had been there before and had a much better experience.

Family holiday dining. Our 3rd time having brunch here and it was great. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our water glasses were never empty. Our meals were delicious and so were the Bloody Mary’s. We are going back for dinner soon. Can’t beat Carte Blanche.

We returned to CB and once again were very satisfied to all you have to offer. We first were seated near bar but asked for second floor seating - needed quiet for personal conversation. Our request was met with quick service and we were seated per our request. Keep up the good work!

Excellent service in warm and inviting atmosphere. We were seated in a private corner of the lower level. Waitress very knowledgable on wine and menu. Generous portions and delicious meal. The warm bread roll was a nice touch. Light and airy. Will return to try brunch and upper level seating.

This restaurant is awesome. I prefer to eat upstairs, but due to a private party, we had to eat downstairs where the bar area is. Some dope kept getting calls on his cellphone and didn’t have the courtesy to put it on vibrate. Other than small annoyances such as that and a bit more noise than I like, dinner was great.

Went on a Wednesday evening, there was only 2 other tables there but it was perfect. Our server Evan was attentive and explained specials and menu items and offered suggestions. We ordered appetizers and 1 entree and split it. The food was very flavorful and served hot. Portions are a very good size. We declined dessert because we were so full from the meal. We are definitely coming back to try the charcuterie board as we seen it on the way out. Looks delicious.

I was very disappointed with our first experience. Had to wait to be seated. Seats were too close to others. Too loud. Duck dish was bland.

The food was not very good. The French onion soup had a strong vinegar taste. The squash soup had no taste. The book Chou under the tuna was extremely salty and the pasta flavor was really off. Won’t be going back and not worth the money.

We have been to Carte Blanche before and the food and wait service has always been outstanding. This last time was no exception. My complaint is with the reservation process. Apparently the only options to reserve a table are through OpenTable or to leave a voice message. There is an option for remarks on OpenTable so I noted that this was our anniversary and requested a table appropriate to the occasion.
We arrived on time and were seated in the bar area next to a table of 8. I asked the receptionist if she could perhaps give us a table upstairs as it was our anniversary ...which was noted in my reservation. Her response was "I'm very sorry but we are all booked up" So without any other options, we settled in for a delicious ...but very noisy anniversary dinner. I feel had I had the opportunity to actually speak to someone at restaurant when making the reservation this situation could have been avoided. I don't mind paying top dollar for a fine dinning experience but unless I can be assured when making a reservation I will get an appropriate table, I will take my romantic dinners elsewhere.

One of my favorite places, try to get there a couple times a month. Good food, friendly attentive service, reasonable prices and some great specials. Imaginative drinks but could use a few more beer selections

We always have really good food here, whether brunch or dinner. Service is also very good, but at times slower than we'd like it to be. Atmosphere is pleasant too.

Chocuterie plate was fantastic! Calamari was rubbery and too Doughey. Entrees were horrid. Pasta was way over cooked and pasty. Very disappointing. Shrimp and Scallops below average after we were told that was the best dish. Wine was good but limited choices. Desserts were good not great. Overall we’ve heard mixed reviews and now understand why. Very disappointing. Won’t return.
