Our favorite restaurant in Carmel, have been eating there for many years, only recently with our small dog. Has outdoor tables (everything is outside right now due to Covid). Very tolerant of dogs, several parties had theirs with them. Food, service & staff all top tier. Do not expect to get out cheaply, but you get what you are paying for. The owner goes by every table, making sure that all of his guests are well taken care of. More of a place for Couples, but families are welcome. Not much on the menu for smaller children.

Carmel Bistro Giovanni is a 5 out of 5 bones. Not only was the food a mixture of culinary delights, the service was exceptional. My mom and I stopped in to check it out, and we had our dog with us. It was slightly drizzly on the patio, but they didn’t hesitate to seat us outside and start the warming lamp for us. Everyone was so warm and friendly, and they didn’t seem bothered by the increasing sprinkles outside. The bread with the tomato/olive oil tapenade was piping hot and delicious. The “Misto Mare” my mom enjoyed was filled with prawns and the cream sauce rich and delicious. I had one of the specials (the name of which escapes me) but it was pan-seared bay scallops in a garlic olive oil sauce with roasted tomatoes. It was a simple dish but the flavors all complimented each other and really showcased how the scallops were cooked to perfection. And, the chocolate espresso mouse cake didn’t disappoint! If you’re in Carmel with your pup, make a stop into Carmel Bistro Giovanni-you’ll be delighted you did!

I would give 10 bones if there was a beyond excellent category! Finn, our furry family member was greeted with her own water bowl, blanket to sit in and then a delicious lunch. Lovely setting and warm, professional staff. Highly recommend.

Amazing place! You and your dogs are welcomed like family here, and they accommodate special requests like, "Can you make this as an appetizer?" and, "Can you add extra meatballs?" The Mamma Mia pasta is by far, our favorite, and the mix of Mediterranean and Moroccan spices is unlike anything you've ever had. I would give this 10 bones if I could.

Went for dinner expecting to be seated outside but we were allowed to bring our 2 dogs inside in the rearing
restaurant! Staff very informative and accommodating. Food was great!

Try the greek salad and the steak. Nice place to have lunch or dinner outside by the firepit. We got to hear live music and have drinks with our pooch by our side.
