We were referred to this restaurant by another couple who reside in Seattle . Great referral! The food was delicious and the atmosphere unique. They had live entertainment consisting of a man playing a acoustic guitar with a woman singing. They were outstanding. Great voices and not overpowering so you could carry on a conversation. The food was wonderful, great... More

Woah, no corkage fee! Hint hint... We had a great three course meal with frog legs, cognac filet mignon, and rack of lamb and were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of cuisine in central Washington. Whoever manages this restaurant cares about the food, service, and details and it shows. We liked that they had roses at each table, French... More

Five friends went for a special evening to celebrate Christmas. The food was good but the service ruined the night for me. Escargot- where else in Yakima will you be able to find the best? Not here!

Let me just cut to the chase. This is the best dinner venue in Yakima. It's expensive but the food it great. The new(ish) owners have done a fabulous job of updating the menu and improving the restaurant overall. There used to be just a couple of dishes that I would recommend here (years ago), but now, I've not had... More

I had expected more after reading reviews by other diners. My dining experience was less than what I had hoped. The food was okay. My scallops with risotto was dry. My husband wanted duck, it sold out by 7:00. His second choice was rabbit with pasta. The rabbit had bones. The staff was friendly and attentive. The decor was lacking... More

Eric, our server, was the perfect blend of polite, friendly and helpful. We skipped the appetizers and started with a cocktail and salad and soup. The mixed green salad with lemon vinaigrette was tasty and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the mushroom bisque. I loved the Alaskan salmon on the crab risotto, it had an unexpected taste of coconut. Husband really... More

Absolutely great service by Eric. The food was top shelf. The ribeye, the scallops and pork medallions were excellent. Topped off by the chocolate mouse and pomegranate creme brûlée. This was a pleasant experience.

The Carousel has a romantic atmosphere and authentic French cuisine. There are many delicious sounding options that make it hard to pick what to order. Escargot, flambé salad, and steak were particularly good. Although the prices are a little on the high side I'd still recommend this place if you are wanting to be indulgent.

We didn't know what to expect, reviews talked about such slow service, but this was not the case for us. We were greeting promptly and had arrived early for our reservation. We sat at the small bar for a cocktail prior to dinner. We enjoyed the quaint surroundings and ended up sitting at the bar with nice conversation from the... More

Delicious food and decor. Our charming waiter, Eric made Cherries Jubilee table side. Eric, Issac and the other wait staff were professional, well trained and charming. They all deserve a raise! We completely lucked out when we found this restaurant on Yelp. The filet mignon! Could have cut it with a butter knife.
