Exceptional - 5 out of 5

With a reservation, our table awaited us. Waiter described all of the evening specials in great detail. Wine list was extensive, even offerings available by the glass. Presentation of food was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at the Carlton. Can't wait to experience another quality meal with them.

Liked: Impeccable service. Excellent food.
Disliked: Nothing bad about my experience.

The waitress barely gave us any service. Did not refill water without being asked to do so. Had to ask for more coffee, and it was stone cold. Someone else basically dumped the meals on the table. Horrible service for a supposedly fine restaurant.

Liked: Food was good.
Disliked: Service was horrible.
