I came here a year ago with my husband for a romantic lunch. It was wonderful. Came again this year with my daughter and had an equally memorable luncheon. Order the French bistro fare with a select glass of wine and revel in the experience. Service was terrific. I love this place. My go-to in Carmel!

We are a family of 4, where one of our kids has Celiacs. We therefore need to be very careful in our choice of restaurant to ensure that we get gluten free food, without cross contamination. We felt in very good hands here. Staff was knowledgeable and understood our situation. My son got a great gluten free pizza and we... More

My wife and I had a table affording a close-up view of pizzas in mid toss, meat in mid slice, a chef saucing it up. All that anticipated fine food served promptly by agreeable staff. A charming stop for lunch – the eggplant with Parmesan cheese served in a hot cast-iron skillet and the charcuterie were first-rate.

Consistently disappointing after the first year it was open. Servers always have an attitude and food is mediocre at best... there are other WAY better choices.

I work down the street from this great little establishment. Recently, I wanted to splurge so I ordered a pizza. The pizza was one of their specials with squash and pine nuts. It was very tasty! My only complaint is the price. After tax, the pizza was 20+ bucks. It feeds one. Tasty but pricey.

A small family gathering two nights before the wedding took place in the semi-private back room at La Bicyclette. What a place, what a night! Start with yummy beer and wine, slide into the cheese and meet platter, the mushrooms and baked bread, then move onto the delicious osso bucco, the unique pizzas, fresh and leafy salads and warm dessert...

La Bicyclette is a very charming restaurant with a good wine list and excellent food. We enjoyed the wonderful lentil soup and split a wonderful pizza. The pot of chocolate mousse for two is to die for and we could not even finish eating it. My only complaint would be the seating is a bit tight, the gentlemen seating behind... More

La Bicyclette is a gem in Carmel By The Sea. We had a most wonderful French lunch. The Champignon Wood Fired Pizza is a must, portabella & oyster mushrooms, mozzarella, thyme, caramelized onions puree, and truffle oil. Mouth Watering We also loved the Charcuterie board, it is a tasting of cured meats cut to order. I highly recommend stopping here... More

I read the reviews and maybe had too high of expectations but the pizza was just fine not great. I had the salumi and it was good. My wife had the mushroom pizza and the onion paste/base really overwhelmed the flavor of all of it. Again, overall our meal was fine just a little disappointing.
