An offbeat essentially underground Asian style restaurant with amazing food and even better service. A very appealing menu and everyone in our party of 6 was pleased with their meal. Definitely recommend.

Atmosphere, service and food were really meeting expectations even though my fish was overcooked. Every dish we tried was good. Service was really good except for wine pouring. The only Asian "fusion" is the inside décor f this restaurant which makes you feel like being...More

The Flying Fish Grill is our favorite restaurant on the entire coast. We eat there every time we visit Carmel. The ambience is casual, with wood panelling throughout. The black bean halibut is not to be missed, and the warmed banana sundae supreme. I should...More

All of Carmel is super pet friendly but I don't think Flying Grill is. I could be wrong but the restaurant is pretty small and all enclosed.
