Cheese Board was delicious! Citrus Crepe and Creme Brûlée were okay. Highly recommend the steak or gnocchi sooo good!

The Forge was a favorite of mine when I was a teen and I’ve been back every time I return to visit friends. The outdoor seating is magical. The clam chowder is great and is gluten free. My son loved the Hawaiian pizza. It tends to have tables when other places are booked. We were concerned it would be chilly outside but the fire pit and heaters kept it cozy. It’s extremely dog friendly and popular with locals.

We were seated promptly next to an outdoor fireplace. A nice place to stay warm. The outside area is dog friendly and many diners and their pooch with them. They even have a dog friendly menu. As for people, try the Ruben sandwich egg rolls!

Carmel is our new favourite place on earth. We toured the town and continued down the coast taking in the most beautiful views in the world! Coming back into town we were told to try Forge in the Forest. The service was spot on, plenty to choose from for hungry kids and mom and dad treated to delicious beer and wine and amazing lunch.
This charming spot has an amazing patio, fireplaces to keep you warm - just what we needed!
We will be back!

Okay, this was our second visit to The Forge (previous visit reviewed on Yelp). As I state in almost every review, everyone owns their own experience, but our experiences with The Forge have been largely positive.
The atmosphere is really nice...both inside and out The Forge is both attractive and comfortable! We sat outside, under a heat lamp and very close to one of several fireplaces. The food was as delicious as our previous visit. We enjoyed the Duck Confit, Ruben Egg Rolls, Spicy Chicken Wings and the Beet Salad...all very, very good!
However, as with recent previous reviews we read...the service was, at best, lacking (reason for the 4 star rating). No need to mention names here (we believe this issue was not a general one, just specific to our area) since the section next to us, being serviced by Johnny, was well tended indeed. Good job Johnny!
Over all this establishment again in my humble opinion...deserves a “highly recommend” review!
