    We had a really good time and the food and wine were all delicious. My only problem was with the service. The service was slow and I got my octopus way ahead of everyone else. I was totally finished plus more time before everyone else got their food. Also had to wait for seconds on wine. I understand that it seemed you were short handed. We would definitely try again.

    Such a cute little place. Delicious wine, not drenched in sugar like a lot of wineries. Employees were friendly and informative about wines and the town. Food was so fresh and delicious. I can't say enough good thing about it. We can't wait to go back in March. It's a definite must see. Make a reservation. Note that it's a tasting room, not a winery but it was just adorable and we loved it!

    Loved the wine and atmosphere. Fare is very light so it is not really a "dinner" experience. It was enough for us, but may not be for all diners. Otherwise there are no complaints! We had a great time. Staff was knowledgeable of the wines.

Warm and knowledgeable server helped us with food and wine choices, including cheese and charcuterie board, smoked salmon salad, and flight of their own wines (loved the Alberino). Everything was simply prepared but very high quality. Will definitely return next time we’re visiting!

    We LOVED both the food and wine here. There wasn't a single thing we ordered that we didn't like - and we pretty much ordered everything on the menu. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with this place and the owners are very friendly. If you like this sort of cuisine I would recommend this place over anywhere else in Chestertown. Thanks for a great experience, we'll be back when we're in town!

    We started with roasted olives and garlic, followed by a 5 choice board, paired with a Gruner Vetliner that may have been the ideal companion. We followed with two tins, the smoked trout and calamari, with (oops, a bottle) of their Rose. Brilliant. Sara was a delightful host with a great sense of timing. It was a gentle and comfortable re-entry into the world of dining indoors!

    This is a true gem slightly off the beaten path in Chestertown. Excellent selection of their own wine along with Spanish conservas and other tapas. Service is always on point and the atmosphere is quiet and informal. Seating inside is limited thanks to COVID but they have outside seating as well. Our favorite is the sardines and a charcuterie board - they are always excellent. If you've never had conservas before you owe it to yourself to try - Casa Carmen is the only place I know on the shore that features it so it is a welcome diversion from the endless varieties of chicken wings and fried cheese so prevalent on the shore.

    Casa Carmen was fabulous! The wine is simply magnificent and the food was very reminiscent of a trip to Spain for tapas. We always get the sardines and a charcuterie board with a nice selection of cheeses and Iberico meats. It is well worth the trip and reservations are highly recommended.

    casa carmen was a great experience and can't wait to go back!! even before arriving, i got a call from the manager (i am assuming) asking if we would like to be seated inside or out as it has been getting chiller. this thoughtful gesture meant a lot! then at the restaurant, erika & bridget were the best servers and so attentive. bridget was beyond helpful in helping decide our wine choices for tonight as well as explaining how casa carmen runs! will definitely be back soon!!
