When choosing a place to dine, you need to take several things into account. From popularity and prestige to Price and taste, all these things need to be considered. Taste was quite exceptional, popularity was definetely up there. Lots of prestige, once you walk in, you think you are in a palace. The portions are very generous and will find yourself taking a doggy bag with you. The downsides unfortunately, are the prices are exceptionally high and the wait to be seated has so far been very timely. I go time and time again and would recommend anyone going for a special occasion or just to try something different, to definetely check out cheesecake Factory.
The first time I visited Carver's was with my boyfriend on the Valentine's Day weekend 2009. I called eariler and made reservations because I expected it to be busy. It was! When we first entered I was very impressed. They set a very romantic scene for the occasion. Food, fantastic! Service, wonderful! The live band, exceptional! I was so impressed with the whole experience and VERY grateful that my friend referred me. It is an upscale restaurant but it is worth the price. Even after we finished eating we received a coupon from the manager for our next visit. We love eating at Carver's. I cannot express how great this restaurant is.
Great food. Expansive selections. Great prices. Generous amount of food. Great presentation at table. For example, I ordered the Broiled Shrimp dinner. It comes with soup or salad, potato, vegetable and homemade bread. I ordered salad with French, green beans, home fries, and skipped the bread (I have gone gluten-free). The salad was FRESH, with good tomatoes. When the meal came, the portion of home fries came on a separate plate, since it was so large. The shrimp were 8 PRAWN-sized or very close to it! The presentation on the plate was great All of this was only $11.99 I will be back soon and often!
