Jacqueline Suzanne's Bistro/The Carmichael Dining Lounge Ratings and Reviews
I have enjoyed many lunches and dinners ...
I have enjoyed many lunches and dinners at Jacqueline Susanne's Bistro/The Carmichael and our meal on New Year's Eve met our usual expectations for good food in a comfortable atmosphere. I was very disappointed to learn that the restaurant has been sold to a Calgary restaurant group that is renown for "contemporary/urban" décor and food presentation. I can only hope that the new owners recognize the value in this little "gem" of restaurant with it's historical presence in old Inglewood. The original tin tile ceiling says it all...
Best wishes to the staff and thanks for all the great meals and service these past years.

We had both been here on a few occassions before for supper and had great experiences and the food had been awesome so my friend being from the north and myself being from the south we were torn between the Nash and Carmicaels. We arrived on time and were very surprised to find we were the only ones in the restaurant and it stayed that way until we left. Because it was not busy we were very surprised that the food was lukewarm and can only be described as mediocre. Passed the Nash on the way out and it was a full house, perhaps it is time for The Carmicael to take a loo at what they are ding wrong. Such a shame as it was always a lovely experience especially if you were lucky enough to get the window seat to people watch.

This was our first time visiting Jacqueline and Suzanne's. We thoroughly enjoyed our wine and meal. The only slight disappointment were the steamed vegetables. Definitely not a deal breaker, but we thought that one thing could be tweaked.
The service was perfect and the food was deliscious.
We will return to Jacqueline and Suzanne's!

Food was good but they were under-staffed so service was poor. The place was full but they only had two waitresses on a Saturday night. They ran out of dishes and glasses at one point for new customers coming in.

My husband and I met our friends for lunch. The ambience is beautiful - perfectly quaint. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food was good and large portions. Three of us had omelettes and our other friend had crepes. Everyone was happy with their meal. We will definitely return.

I met a friend here for dinner and we both really enjoyed our experience. Our server was wonderful and considerate, the food was very good and the decor lovely romantic/historic. I'd recommend this place to friends for special occasions, place to take your partner etc. The price is a bit higher but appropriate for the type of place and the type of food - good, well prepared and very tasty.

Met a friend for lunch, was impressed with the very pretty décor and friendly staff. Parking is so easy (at either end of the block or on the street in front) compared to Kensington and the shopping in the area before or after your meal is excellent. Food was very good, a tad slow to arrive, but everything else was prompt (wine, coffee, water) with the waitress checking the drinks often) Food was right off the grill and piping hot, no waiting on the counter getting cold here. Never had dessert, though it sounded tempting. The wine was excellent and with 1/2 price bottles on Tuesday, a nice early week treat. A lovely place I look forward to returning to.

Terrific meal and service. My husband started with the delicious French Onion Soup followed by the prime rib special. I had the house salad and the stroganoff. We had a delicious bottle of wine. Sadly, the restaurant was almost empty on a Friday night at 7:30. Too bad, as it was a great meal with nice ambiance and a lovely waitress. Highly recommend!

My husband and I met up with another couple for lunch at The Carmichael and we had a very delicious lunch. The service was very good and the meals were excellent in flavor as well as presentation. We would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch and dinner, which we have enjoyed a number of times as well.

We had a great lunch. We had soup and salad. The soup was warm and very tasty and the seafood salad was a good size and had such nice flavors, we did not leave anything in our plates. The atmosphere of this restaurant was calm, friendly and inviting; perfect for great conversations. This is really a gem in Inglewood.

Horrible service asked for more bread and the server said ok but then never brought it out. We asked about it she said well there's bread that comes with your meal could you just eat that? We were like what serious? How much is more bread?. Then the food took 45 mins to come out the server never said anything never approached us to apologize. Iz there only one cook?. The rack of lamb was ok I've had better racks at hotels in the states. Lastly the server forced us to pay 20% tip...I thought tip was for good service? They come off snobby the servers do and I go to the keg and the prices are the same but the servers are humble and kind I don't mind giving more tip there. But for lousy service and attitude they force you to pay more tip please!
I do not recommend this place if you get the same server we did it will be a horrible experience. I think the other server was better sorry I don't remember our servers name but she was new there she said.
Go to the keg instead food is probably better go for the rib steak.

My husband and I made a return trip for a date night. This quiet, yet somehow vibrant place had just the right atmosphere for what we wanted. Quiet piano music in the back ground (it was a little spa-like, but pleasant) made it easy for conversation. Food was outstanding - their prime rib dinner is always a favourite and the menu special of an appetizer, entree, and dessert for only $50.00 was well worth it. Delicious. Great place.

This was our first time. We came to listen to the fantastic pianist & composer Robert Naumko. It was so cosy, romantic & all of the staff were top notch! We really enjoyed talking to your wine expert as we brought our own wine. Will definitely come back. Thank you!

I would not under any circumstances recommend this restaurant to anyone. We were a group of 4 and none of us enjoyed the salads, soups or the main dishes they brought out.
The salads were drenched and dripping with salty and sour dressings. The french onion soup tasted as if it came out of a can. The cajun dressings were extremely salty to the point that 2 of us couldn't finish our meals.

Prime Rib special on Sunday night is great value. The only thing I consistently think could be better is the house salad mixed greens. It is mostly spinach but not soft baby spinach and neither the dill or balsamic dressings are particularly flavourful. The appetizers, desserts and main courses are all good. Prime rib cooked to a perfect medium! We'll be back (might try the Caesar next time.)

We quite liked this little gem in Inglewood. Very cozy decor (reminded me of some of the older, character building interiors you see in Vancouver), and we enjoyed the ambiance, service, and food. The food wasn't overly spectacular, but we liked being able to hold a conversation without having to yell above loud music, which is something that many restaurants seem to be guilty of.

Great food. Service was a little weak though. Wine pours from bottle were too big and had to say something. Plate presentation at table was confused. Did not wait until everyone was finished before trying to remove plates. Seemed like an inexperienced waitress. Perhaps a bit fussy but general impression was that the service was not up to the quality of the food.

We love This place and have been coming for a very long time. We were there on a friday evening. There was only 1 server on. He was so busy, the service did suffer. He did his best to keep up but was overwhelmed noticed he had no help until 1 girl helped once with the drink order that we had been waiting for over 10 minutes for. The food was good the homemade cheesecakes as per usual were outstanding. Just need a little help on the service side

We had looked in the windows several times and were attracted by the elegant but modern decor. We booked a table for 8 to celebrate my wife and her friend's joint 70th birthday and we all had a wonderful time! The food was very good, the service was friendly & attentive and the atmosphere was perfect: comfortable, relaxing and quiet enough that we could talk to one another -- a huge bonus in a city where most restaurants are ridiculously noisy. The chef came out to talk with us afterwards and the bar manager brought the two birthday ladies a special after-dinner drink on the house and give us $10 off coupons to use another time. It was a great evening and we will definitely be back again!

We had a really lovely dinner on sunday night. The food was great, the steak and lamb dishes were cooked exactly as requested. Service was excellent. Our server was on her own and ended up with more walk ins than expected. She managed extremely well. Our dinner progressed with just the right amount of time between courses. She had a great sense of humour. Definitely will go back again

There were 3 of us & the service was excellent!
Two of us had the homemade Beef Stroganoff & it was delicious.
The other person had the Soup of the Day & the Seafood Platter.
Declared both delicious.
Grand Marnier Creme Brulee = the best I've had!
Food was fresh, beautifully presented & hot.
Extensive wine list.

This restaurant is a beautiful little place. Great ambience. One steak was overcooked but was quickly replaced. The primerib was disappointing. The yorkshire pudding was huge but not fabulous. Wine list is very average.
Three forks out of five.

I went with my daughter for a Saturday morning brunch as we had a Groupon to use. We were there right when it opened and were seated in the window seat. The service, from beginning to end, was perfect. We ordered two dishes to split - the cinnamon raisin french toast and the crab cake benedict. Both were really tasty. The music playing and the ambiance were both great. What a gem of a restaurant. We will definitely return again!
