If you want to try a different cuisine.....tired of Mexican, burgers or pizza all the time? Don't want that sluggish feeling ya get after eating so much pasta again? Experiment and try out some Israeli cuisine. Fresh and delicious food like sandwhiches made to the order---with even the vegetables cut/sliced fresh to order. I know this because I have seen it myself. Combinations of flavors and food items that are unique to many people, but that you will really LOVE when you go. Don't miss out on their incredible soups too! You'll want the entire batch of soup----they're that good! As a frequent customer here, I have seen new customers come in, order items they've never tried or tasted ever before, and watch them DEVOUR their plates and state how delicious the food is. Doesn't that say enough? Having coffee that's better than Starbucks doesn't hurt either! Seriously true, folks! Ya know how you can go into some places, ask them questions about their food and it's like they're annoyed with it or they just don't know? I promise you, you will NOT get that type of service here. They're happy to help, happy to explain things to you. So, just do it. Try them out. You'll thank me for the suggestion.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It was close to my particular home, so that was already a plus. However, the actual dining experience was a pleasure. My b/f and I read the reviews about this place. 2 good out of 3. Makes me wonder if the bad one was because they were rude customers. Anyhow, the waiter was pleasant and prompt with everything. He was polite and very attentive to our wants. He suggested his favorite and gave reviews on the dishes we actually did choose. I had the Chicken canalonni (spelling) and it was WONDERFUL. Also, the ambiance of the inside was very pleasant. Clean, sophisticated and romantic. Very tastefully decorated. I was highly impressed with it. The food, from bread, to appetizer to entree' was magnificent. The prices were also very reasonable; comparable to Macaroni grill; however, the quality of food is better here. All in all, I give it 2 thumbs up. It WILL be going into to my recommendation list and my favorites to dine. So please, don't rely on the one negative review - give it a chance.(Pardon all spelling mistakes)
The Carriage House Bistro is a part of the Botanical Garden... my fiance had planned on going through the garden, but we stopped in the Carriage House Bistro first to have lunch. IT WAS AMAZING!! I don't know why their website doesn't have more information on it and how good it is. Anyway, we ordered some sort of dip and "crisptinis" as an appetizer, we both had french onion soup, I ordered some sort of salad with a very zippy dressing... a few glasses of wine... it was just phenomenal, I don't remember having a lunch like that before. Customer service is great there - our waitress was very nice, very friendly, and very knowledgable. We are moving soon but will make it a point to go back there one more time before we leave!!
