Has anyone had the food at the Quail Lodge in Carmel?
Like the other poster, it's been too long for me to make an accurate comment on the food.
A suggestion would be www.carmelvalleyranch.com. This resort has been completely redone with a restaurant called Citronella. It has gotten rave reviews on several boards. I have stayed there, but haven't been to the restaurant since the redux. It's a beautiful property.
