The service is attentive but not overbearing. The food is good. Nice setting. All fine fine. EXCEPT: what year is this? This restaurant assumes to give the wine list to the man. “His” menu features the food as well as the excellent, extensive wine list. “Her” menu is food only. This is old school, off-putting, and offensive. Enough to make me never come back and I certainly will not recommend to any of my friends.

I have dined in this establishment many times. I think it is the best restaurant in Carmel. The bar is very friendly and inviting (it's also our favorite spot to dine). It's is a bit pricey, but the quality is unsurpassed!!!
Grasings has always exceeded my expectations. Next time your in try the Duck......nothing like it anywhere!!!

Ok, just not amazing. It was good but losing a star because it was expensive for how much we enjoyed the food. It was just ok. The fish and chips were good, one of our guests was very excited about those. The marinated veggie plate was lackluster. Being vegetarian or just simply craving vegetables shouldn't mean my meal is boring, or slimy. The staff was friendly and the one piece of bread we were offered was nice, I could have used a second one with my meal but I guess they limit you? I would have asked but no one ever came back to check on us after we had our food. The re shame was we came in at lunch to an EMPTY restaurant and we were sat in the back corner staring at a wall when there were cute tables with better views. So we sat stuffed in the farthest corner and stared at a wall while I ate a so-so veggie dish. It could have been better

Visiting Carmel? Then you simply must dine in this place. Upscale yet casual with the warm atmosphere good food and astonishingly huge selection of wine. Great experience every time we visit the place.

Nice, quaint spot to eat right in the middle of Carmel-by-the-Sea. While it's not located on Ocean Ave., it is one block up and definitely walking distance from shops and the beach. Usually fairly crowded, but never too bad of a wait. Food is good, not the best Carmel has to offer, however an excellent little lunch place.

First time in Carmel, called for a reservation and took the patio. All good until we arrived and were seated so close to another table that I was almost bumping elbows with the guy. To be expected?Maybe. But worse was the fact there wasn't a single heater nearby and yet there were 3 empty tables on this patio and all had heaters. Maybe they were reserved? Last straw was the service - just waiting for the introductions and water and return to take our order took so long, we could tell it would be a long night waiting, in the cold, as we could see our waiter had other tables inside. He also seemed a bit snobby when my wife asked about gluten-free options.

Any one or two of these things by themselves would have been okay, but all together it was too much, especially when our hopes were so high for a special first evening in Carmel-by-the-Sea. We settled the check and left without ordering.

One of the bartenders seems very proud of being a "wolf".
I had hoped to gracefully ignore his conceit, and appreciate his friendliness, but his inappropriate hugs and bragging about being a cad continued.
If the management has not noticed, they are not paying attention.

The staff at Grasling's created a wonderful meal for us, and everything was spot on. The sommelier's pick was excellent. The big surprise was the bacon wrapped mission figs with blue cheese. The beautiful, perfectly prepared scallops were served over cheese ravioli, wild mushrooms, and bok choy, with an exquisite marsala sauce. I can't think of any place for improvement. I'll be coming back to further explore the work of Chef Grasling and his crew.

A fabulous, cozy, and warm inviting a restaurant as you will ever experience in the heart of Carmel.
An incredible wine list and fantastic food to match the service.

One of the truly excellent Carmel restaurants! As it should be when a chef's name is on the marquee, Kurt's oversight of this operation never quits. Superior wine list and liquor selection, knowledgeable staff and consistently excellent food!

Really wanted to like this place but for the price it was really a bitter disappointment and totally unacceptable. Lamb chops arrived overcooked then when redone still arrived rare on one and over done on the other?!?!?

Salmon was overdone as well - dry to the core.

Other dishes like tuna tartare and abalone were really overpriced mediocre versions...

Maybe a bad night but this definitely left a poor impression.

It was our first time here and wanted to celebrate the upcoming holidays with a very special friend. We were both so excited to finally try this restaurant because we had heard so many great things about it. We started with a warm spinach salad and the onion tart. Both were very good. The entrees arrived and I could tell visually that her dish was piping hot and it looked too good to eat. My dish was equally stunning but obviously not nearly the same temp. In fact, my short ribs were barely warm. They were also too fatty to be enjoyable and lacked in any flavor whatsoever. To make matters worse, the mashed potatoes were prepared with an obscene amount of salt. The vegetables were nice and unfortunately the highlight of my meal. This is obviously a one sided review because the chicken was nice but I will let her review that dish. To end on a high note, the ambiance was very nice and the service was top notch. I would give it a 2nd try but with so many other amazing places to visit in Carmel, it will be a while before that happens.

The noise from the bar spills into the dining room, ruining any attempt at creating a fine dining experience. The wedge salad was good, but that's where the enjoyment stopped. The seafood in the paella was rather rubbery and didn't taste fresh - I ended up not feeling well for the remainder of the evening. For the price, the meal was a complete disappointment. I definitely wouldn't come back here.

If you're looking for a bar, though, this may be a good place to visit. The bar seemed lively.
