I will be in Carmel for one night and have been recommended both of these restaurants for dinner. Any suggestions on which I should choose? Thanks in advance.

    If I'm not mistaken, La Bicyclette serves a 3 course pre-fixe menu that changes daily. You might call ahead to see if what is being offered that day appeals to you, although I don't know how far in advance they set their menu (by the day, week or month?).

      La Bicyclette changed to a la carte some time last year. They also have wood fired pizzas. They both have sample menus on their websites and you can see which one appeals more. I slightly prefer La Bicyclette.

        Thanks PattyC, good to know since we'll be in Carmel later in the Fall.

        If you are dining with a romantic interest...Casanova.
        If you are dining alone...La Bicyclette

        Or the best of both worlds... LB for lunch, C for dinner.

          Both have good food, Casanova has much more ambiance. :)
