We have been to the Carmel Room before and have always enjoyed the experience. Currently they are in a temporary location as work is being done in the regular restaurant area, but the location they are in is great. Much bigger, more open, and scenic. The food and wine are consistently fabulous and we truly enjoy our visits for our anniversary.

Tariq is awesome. Always welcomes you with a big smile and is very funny and accommodating . Our waiter, Jonathon is the best in town. Ask for him when you go to the Carmel Room. Best lamb chops and crab legs too besides the steaks!!!!!!!!!!!

The steaks are terrific! The staff is exceptional. Andre' was our waiter and was awesome. Andre has wonderful stories about old Vegas, if you can request him and ask him about his dad. You'll love the Carmel a room!

The food is still decent at this restaurant, but now that they've moved out of their private dining room, there is no ambiance at all. It's just like eating in another cafe...not what you want on a special occasion. Too bad, used to be a nice place

The Carmel Room is always a pleasure to dine at. Terry and all the waiters help compliment the fine food and dining. It almost seems as if we are dining in at home with friends or relatives.
The service is great and the food always hot when served.

Hadn't been inside this restaurant in more than 4 years, and the wear and tear on the walls, and chairs are visible and in need of some TLC. Located in CERES, it is called the Carmel Room in the evening for dinner, and CERES for breakfast/brunch. I was seated by a window with a nice view of the foliage and grounds, but I noticed the windows needed cleaning as they were spotty and hadn't had any attention for awhile.
The food was good ... Prime rib a good size and was perfectly prepared; salad was prepared and obviously stored in the refrigerator for awhile before being served. The house Cabernet that came with the fixed price menu left a lot to be desired, and the chocolate cake for dessert was ... Just cake. But the birthday treat of dark chocolate cake with whipped cream was amazing, and beautifully presented.
Great service, but not an exquisite restaurant as J.W. Marriott would want you to believe. Needs a physical upgrade and a little more attention to menu items, in my opinion.

We always go to the Carmel Room, but this time medium rare game out over cooked. The steaks were not a good choice. I will order something different next time. Service was excellent as always and it's a beautiful dining room.

The old Carmel Room has been moved to Ceres, which is a lovely, open air setting. The food is the same but I still preferred the older room which has a setting more like a library and was more intimate. Won't keep me away.

We came here for my wife's birthday. I had the prime rib and she had butternut squash ravioli. We both found our entrees to be mediocre. The service at times was attentive while at other times we felt ignored. This is the 3rd time we've dined here and have yet to be impressed. While nothing is bad about the place, there's nothing that makes me say, "Hey, let's go to the Carmel Room". If we weren't staying at the JW Marriott it's not a place I'd visit.
Frankly, after being a customer in the past, this experience was less than we expected. The change in location, although, maybe easy for your people, was hard for us. We walked the casino twice, following signage, only to never find it. Finally asked a security guard, and she said the signs were wrong and directed us to the location. My prime rib was undercooked and wifes Dover Sole was average. Our server dropped a third of it on the floor and it lay there even as we left. Can't say we'll be back.

It was indicated on our reservation it was my wife's birthday no effort was made by the staff to do their usual birthday wishes. The prime rib was very tuff, the new york steak was smaller than in the past visits to the old Carmel room. The new location has lost its cozy and upscale ambiance that the original Carmel room had. Not planning to return in the future.
Mother's Day Outing
Upon entering The Carmel Room and being seated, we noticed that the menu was very limited. The amount of money spent did not compare to the food food selections. It was disappointing how compressed the list of items on the menu were. The food was not that great. If you are looking for a steakhouse The Carmel Room in the Rampart Casino is not it.
Great Servers, Great Food
You always feel comfortable at the Carmel. Service is great and also the food. Been going there many years and hopefully will continue to do so. Terry and the servers treat us as family and always go out of the way to meet all needs of the customers.

Outstanding and professional svc from the entire staff
The food was another matter; appetizers were re-thawed several times, the bisque's color was heavily laden w/none descriptive substance. The ravioli was tasteless - while the boulaibase was heavy with salmon meat so heavy that it couldn't be consumed. The highlight of the meal was the creme broulei which was very well prepared and presented.
The wine list featured primarily US wines, especially when ordered by the glass
Been going to Carmel Room for many years...
The dinner was the best ever. Highly recommend the Carmel salad with avocados plus the veal medallions with lobster. Chef Nicole really outdid herself this time and so, so artistic in the placement of food design. Our waiter, Rupert, is the best and & James is always so helpful.
First time I was there. Atmosphere was quiet, great table by window. But the most outstanding thing was the service. The staff was most attentive, but not overly hovering. Food was wonderful. A little pricey for what I would normally spend for a meal out, but overall worth it. I will definitely go back.
Old School With Potential; Needs Character
My wife and I had a nice dinner here for Valentine's Day. Our server Andre was definitely old school, having worked for the Carmel Room for 10+ years. He paid us plenty of attention, made sure our wine glasses were full and kidded around with us a bit. We enjoyed him. The restaurant recently moved into a large space that has potential, with floor to ceiling glass looking at the lovely landscaping. But they've not done much with it yet--just old carpet and tables, with unimpressive chandeliers. Food was solid but in no way spectacular (also expensive). They're still working on the wine list, although we got a steal with the BV Tapestry Reserve for $85. Overall a pleasant dining experience, but they could do a lot more with the space and the food.
Try It Again
People who wrote negative reviews should give this another shot. Our food was perfectly prepared, served in a timely and professional manner, and delicious. This is not a 5 Star restaurant, but it's not far off. We were advised that the room will be renovated in the near future to make it more intimate and comfortable. Staff was attentive, professional, and very knowledgeable. It's not the old "Carmel Room", but it will get better. We are locals and plan to go back again and again.
My Lady and I have been to the Carmel Room twice. The Original Carmel Room (about 5 years ago), and recently, at Ceres Restaurant. I remember the very Romantic evening we had 5 years ago. The Ceres Restaurant is buffet style. Yes, the food was delicious and the service was great.
