We visit Carmel with dogs. Grasing's patio was covered , had enough heaters and, unlike any of the other places we visited had thick pads for the dogs to lie on to keep them off the cold ground. Checking Yelp reviews before we went almost all the terrible reviews referred to terrible service. That's what we experienced. Other table on the patio were well tended, the bus boy kept our water filled but thew waiter NEVER checked up on us to see how we were doing when we had been served and probably took ten minute between times that we needed to consult with him. If he had been attentive we could have finished one half hour earlier. If Mark is your server, ask to be moved to a different station. The Hostess was very nice, as were the busboys, and the Prawn dish was excellent, the pork chop was very good. The service knocks down the rating.
Forewarned is forearmed!
