Ice cream tasted like whipped cream. Got a small waffle cone with swirl and threw the whole thing away. Very disappointed.

I was very surprised to find that Carvel ice cream actually tasted very good. I got the cookies and cream and i loved it. Everyone in our group was also very satisfied. I personally wouldn't go back only because I would want to try out other places, but its great for kids and a safe place to go if youre... More

Had a major craving for a Carvel swirl cup since we first drove past this shop. We were surprised to find it open around 10:00 pm at night and on a Sunday! We ordered the chocolate/vanilla swirl small cup and that first spoonful was heaven! Took me back to my childhood! The service was great and the store was clean.... More

We had been treated to ice cream sandwiches (at my son's home) from the Carvel Ice Cream Store and found them to be the best ever. When we saw the store itself, we had to try it firsthand. My husband and I had hot fudge sundaes and they were so good. This soft serve is so close in taste to... More

We go to LA once a week for medical appointments and I've been wanting to stop at Carvel for a while. We finally stopped there on Sunday and I was thrilled to discover they were open until 11:00pm. We arrived in LA around 10:30 and I figured we were too late. My husband noticed the closing time and went in... More

Room was spacious and clean. Thermostat didn't work too well but it was fine. We had brunch given by hosts of the affair we attended and were treated very well. The hired help throughout the hotel were extremely gracious. Would return.

don't know about their ice cream, and there is no one for the past few times we were there - but they have the best soft serve in town! not overly sweet, yet full of rich milk flavor.

We all have tons of options when it comes to ice cream, and we keep going back to this Carvel store on Santa Monica blvd. They may not have the most extensive ice-cream menu (they seem to specialize more in ice cream cakes), but the ice creams they do offer, they do VERY well. The soft serves are pristine. We... More

I'm a Jersey girl, and we LOVE Carvel Ice Cream. Here in West L.A. is an old-fashioned Carvel Ice Cream Store and everyone loves it. The soft serve vanilla cone dipped in Chocolate is my all time favorite. (Back east, we grew up watching Tom Carvel pitch his soft custard on TV ads in the 1960's. Nothing made the hot... More
