I have previously reviewed this restaurant favorably. It is one of our most frequently visited eatery in Carlsbad. This time it was an anniversary dinner ... Great food, good ambiance and excellent service but it was very bothersome ( and I told this to our waitperson as clearly and politely .. hope it was conveyed to the management) that a $30 corkage line item left a bitter taste in my mouth in spite of otherwise excellent evening. It is just WRONG to be a restaurant in California (a state that relies on wine production / consumption revenue heavily) and have a business practice of a outrageous corkage fee (ROBBERY) that practically robs the patrons who bring wine of their choice. Enough said !... Hope the management takes this seriously.
