Dips were great as were the lamb pops. But the pasta was super undercooked and had basically no flavor. Also, the salmon was significantly undercooked as well. Hoping it was just a fluke. But willing to try again. Our server was awesome and our cocktails were strong!

We visited Carte Blanche to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first time there and our experience was very pleasant . I can’t wait to go back. Our waitress ,Cassidy was fantastic! I had the sea bass and my husband had the ribeye steak . He said it was the best steak he ever had! All of our food was great from the appetizer to dessert. If there was just one thing I wished to be better if would be colder water. I know some people prefer room temperature water but for me sitting outside on 75 degree day I desired it to to be a little bit colder.

Short rib pasta did not match the written description. Seemed like dried linguine was substituted for fresh pasta

We had not been to Carte Blanche previously. It was a great dinner. Will definitely return. I said the noise level was moderate because we ate outside and the traffic noise was a little loud at times.

We were first seated outside by the hostess stand. On a non-windy night, that would have been fine, however, it felt like we were in a wind tunnel. They were courteous and allowed us to move to a back table which was much better. Great customer service.

We eat at carte blanche often. It’s one of our favorites. We were seated on the upstairs patio which must have been near the kitchen vent because the smell wasn’t that pleasing. We asked to be moved inside and they accommodated us no problem. They were out of a few things but I understand with covid and limited seating that you have to maybe alter how much inventory you keep. The rest of the meal was spot on. Food was delicious as always. I just wouldn’t suggest seating people upstairs. Thanks for a great date night carte blanche!

This was our first dining out in many months and we sat in a pretty courtyard on a beautiful sunny Sunday.
It was an important brunch to us as we had Canadian guests for whom it was also the first visit to a restaurant in months and we were all pleasantly surprised. The service was good with charming servers and everyone enjoyed their brunches, plus the drinks that were an added bonus.
We will definitely revisit Carte Blanche for dinner and will recommend the dining there to all our friends,
Overall, an excellent experience!

Outdoor seating was very pleasant, with proper physical distancing and umbrellas to block the sun. The food is always first rate and the service was very attentive. On the Sunday we enjoyed brunch, a freezer had broken down the night before, so some menu options were not available, which was disappointing, but out of the restaurant’s control.

We always enjoy Carte Blanche so much. The food and service is always outstanding. We ate inside and had plenty of room, “socially distanced” from other diners. Carte Blanche hasn’t missed a beat since fully reopening following the pandemic. Such a treat dining there!

Popovers were soggy - they are usually really good - seemed like they had been re-heated. Caesar salad was miniscule compared to the normal portion we are used to getting there (like about half the size) - and for $8 not a great value.
Main courses were super!
Service incredible as always.
It was a Tuesday, so maybe the normal chef's day off?
