Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

BAD knife sharpening

Took my Shun knife in for sharpening. It came back WORSE than when I dropped it off. ☹️ Expected so much more from such a reputable store.

Lovely store...saleswomen are WAY too pushy!
Nov 2019
We were staying almost right across the street from Carmel Plaza and had shopped the street level stores, but didn’t realize there was a floor below until I was reading an article in Edible Monterey Bay magazine that there was a Sur La Table store. So on our last day in Carmel by the Sea, we went back to find Sur La Table. Loved the store, but after just a couple of minutes of perusing the store, the FIRST of very aggressive women approached and asked if she could help us...at first I said no, we were just looking, but then remembered I had bought my daughter a pepper mill but needed whole peppercorns,so I then asked the woman if they had whole peppercorns...she thought they did and went in search....she came back with a jar of peppercorns, but I wasn’t familiar with the word that prefaced peppercorns on the label, so I asked if she could show me where these were in the store. She insisted these were the ones everyone bought, but I again asked if she could show me the display of peppercorns. She seemed to get annoyed with me and said “well, do you want these?” I told her maybe but again asked if she could show me the display of peppercorns. Turns out there was only one other choice, so I opted for the one she showed me. So she brought them to the check out counter. Continuing on with browsing in the store, I started having a conversation with my daughter on napkins we found, but then got approached by another saleswoman asking if I had any questions...told her, No, just questions between my daughter and myself. Got too overwhelmed with the pushy sales ladies and went to pay for the peppercorns...lovely young woman at the counter ...no,price on the jar of peppercorns so she apologized as she had to go get another jar with a price on it. While waiting for her to come back...(she was quick ) yet ANOTHER older woman approached me and asked if she could help me! I am a BIG believer in Customer Service, but other than the lovely young gal at the cash register....the other older ladies should perhaps NOT BE SO AGGRESSIVE! My daughter and I couldn’t wait to get out of there!

Cook's version of Elysia
Oct 2019
Although prices on merchandise at SLT are not cut-rate, the quality of their merchandise is excellent and, if it's within your budget, worth it. The people who work here are helpful, friendly and accommodating. The store has so many items you didn't realize you couldn't live without until you see them on the shelves. Going into the store with a list of one item doesn't mean you won't leave with 6.....I did. It is a better version of the other large cooking store.

Dreamy kitchen store
Sep 2019
It's like a nice kitchen warehouse. You can find the classical kitchen utensils, but also so many novelties.

Nice shopping experience
May 2019 • Solo
Overall it is a nice shop and will make up love cooking. Especially after you hang around in the ferry building. They offer large variety of kitchenwares and I am sure you will love it!
However i will suggest if want to buy Lodge Grill pan here, it is much more expensive than Target. USD 35 vs USD 20, then you can have your own judgement whether you are a pricer buyer.

Upscale Kitchen Store - Sur La Table
Dec 2016 • Solo
I went shopping at Sur La Table which is an upscale store for cooks. The store also has classes. Being that it is the Christmas Holiday season, they had a variety of holiday items as well. Service is OK.

My favorite place for cooking supplies
Nov 2016 • Couples
High end cooking accessory store. The thing I love most about this company is that they stand behind everything they sell. If you buy a ceramic knife and it breaks, bring in the handle and they will replace it free for life. That is the policy for everything they sell, including electric appliances.

Cuban Date Night Cooking Class was fun
Aug 2015
Date night cooking class was very enjoyable. It was Cuban dinner and delicious. The instructor, Mark, was very good, spoke clearly and slowly without being patronizing. He was at ease and added humor with his instructions. Eric was also good and the background staff was quiet and out of the way busy working diligently. It was a reasonable price for what we got and a whole lot of fun.
