    Terrible staff who could care less- our appetizer was delivered to the table and the waitress still had not even taken our main food order. We finished the entire thing, and then had to ask another member of staff to please send the waitress. She finally shows up and says “sorry I was gone for a little while” it has been over 20 minutes 🙈 food was pretty good actually, but the portions are tiny and everything is so overpriced for what it is.. A $19 poke bowl was the tiniest little portion. I thought it was a joke. I consumed the whole plate in 2.5 minutes. We all 4 left at the end and went somewhere else for a small meal because we were all still hungry. I hate to say it- but we will not be returning.

    My husband and I are in New Oleans for a couple of nights for my birthday. We dined at Carmo on a Thursday. Its a place for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores…. They do have gluten free options as well. We had 6pm reservations but ended up arriving around 4:30….. we were hungry. Its a cute colorful space with wood tables. It takes up a couple of storefronts. Perfect for dates and group dining. We started with Tiradito Avocado and it was amazing. The fish was really fresh cut similar to sushimi with avocado and red onions all sliced very thin. The cancha (crunchy corn kernals were a nice addition). The trifongo with roasted pork was delicious- the flavors were so good and there was a hint of sweetness that balanced the taste of the trifongo. The pork was tender and flavorful. And then we moved onto the daily curry. They curry was also amazing - im gluten free so skipped the roti (I can’t wait until someone makes a gluten free one or I should start trying my hand at it). But I didn’t miss the roti at all, my husband had it and it was a crispy roti not what im used to seeing but they are made differently depending on what country or part of the Caribbean you are in. The curry was a yellow curry, coconut based with rice and we added shrimp. The dish was so fresh, hot and tasty. Drinks on the menu were tropical with fresh fruit purées. We didn’t have dessert but I can bet they would have been just as good as everything else. Carmo is well worth a visit.

    The advertised 'Peruvian Experience' chef dinner was the main reason for booking this restaurant. Upon arriving to the restaurant and after sitting for a few minutes waiting for the 'experience' to start we were informed that the chef was not available and there won't any 'experience' that night. We were told that apparently we were called with a message earlier that day, but there was no messaged left on my phone. It was rather disappointing.

    CarmoResponded on October 2, 2022Hello, our Amazonian (not Peruvian) tasting dinner was listed on this site without our knowledge, has now been removed. Reservations are only available on the website, OriginsAmazon.org Proceeds go to indigenous communities we work with in the Amazon, to assist with battling illegal mining, ranching & logging. Spots are extremely limited. So, if you'd like to make a reservation, please feel free, if that's not your cup of tea, no worries.

    The food was very unusual, but everything was fresh. Server was very nice, but I found it overpriced for the style of the restaurant and the ambiance.

    CarmoResponded on July 2, 2022Thanks for visiting Carmo. We're glad you found our food and service to be nice and fresh. Our average price per person for dinner is $32, which is substantially less than most restaurants in our neighborhood and definitely if any that approach using the quality of ingredients we use. I'm not sure what you are comparing us to.

    Great food. Great service. We let our server, Emma, pick our dishes. She brought one delicious dish after another. Our party had avid meat eaters and vegetarians, and both were very happy. The cocktails were good too! Great food, casual setting, excellent experience overall. Will definitely go back.

    Amazing Valentines Day dinner. We are regulars so we love this place but Valentines Day was extra special. They had an optional (meaning their regular menu was available) group of three Prix Fix menus. My husband had the fish one and I had the vegan one. The were five courses and both menus were excellent. My only comment was the serving for one was enough for two people but that didn't keep me from eating the whole thing. I have had a Prix Fix vegan menu at a Michelin starred restaurant that was not as good as this one.

    We had read good reviews of Carmo and it did not disappoint us. We had the amberjack collars, which were very fresh and tender. For a main dish, we both got the daily curry — one with added shrimp and one with just veggies. The curry was so complex, but subtle at the same time. It didn’t whomp you upside of the head like some Thai curries do. It has a spiciness that didn’t overwhelm the flavors. Every bite was delicious veggies, rice, and curry sauce. We paired it with a reasonably-priced Portuguese wine. It was a memorable dining experience, and not a pretentious place at all. If we had more time on our trip, we’d eat here again.
