Diner Reviews
  • "I heard lots of excellent things and the restaurant delivered as promised. Food was outstanding. Service was on top of their game. Steak was one of the most tender I have ever had. Love the way they serve their wine as well. A lot of little things that made them stand out as a top notch restaurant."

  • "we could not understand the food server because she talked to fast and did not enunciate."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Service was mostly good. I had filet w/ lobster topping & crab legs for $69.99. Server didn't include prices when announcing the specials, so we had to keep asking. I actually had to spitt the lobster topping. Most of it was the red, rubbery part of the claw, and tasted like a mouthful of oily ocean water. The filet was delicious. The King crab legs were tasty. The "melted butter" was a combo of butter and oil, which I didn't like. My husband steak w/ crab on top, which was great, except the crab on top was tossed with the same gross sauce as my lobster. When I told the waitress about the topping, she simply walked away without question or offer to do anything about it. Delish Key lime pie. Good, but NOT good enough for the price."

  • "Celebrating another family birthday where the staff welcomes you and makes you feel special. Apps are great and a cut of steak for every pallet. Cooked to perfection. Staff friendly and very attentive. Worth the price."

  • "Overall a great experience, one you would anticipate at such a well known restaurant. We went on a late Sunday night for our anniversary and our waitress was great, very nice and courteous. I will say she was stretched way too thin being the only waitress working the dining room. As always the food was fantastic."

  • "The best filet mignon and the best service. a wonderful evening and great food and wine!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "As usual the service was impeccable. We were greeted by the manager and seated immediately at table 1, our favorite table. A few minutes later our waitress arrived with 2 glasses of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. We purposely made reservations for a Sunday evening when wine was half-priced for bottles less that $150.00. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and we were not rushed to finish. We spent the better part of 2 hours enjoying our meal with the service very attentive, but not over bearing."

  • "We've been to CAs many times in the past and had good experiences. Unfortunately this time was an exception. One of our party ordered the New York strip special, medium. It arrived very rare. When it was sent back, it returned no where near medium, still rare, not very warm and with an odd grayish tint. In fact, it didn't even look like it touched the grill. Microwaved? The rest of our food was very good but for a restaurant to have 'steakhouse' in the name, the steaks should be consistently outstanding. Noise level was very high, mostly due to the rambunctious table next to us which is not the fault of the restaurant. On the plus side, our server was outstanding."

  • "Carmen Anthony Steakhouse was a pleasant surprise. As a party of 10, celebrating graduations, the place was very comfortable. We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and terrific service. Couldn't have asked for anything more! Highly recommend. "

  • "Carmen Anthony's is always a favorite for my husband and I. We know we are going to get a great meal when we come here and on our last visit, we were not disappointed."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "My family had a really lovely dinner at Carmen Anthony's the night before graduation. The food was delicious - we opted for lobster, steak and the salmon. The lobster was definitely worth it. But, above all the service was incredible. We had a very funny, attentive waitress who went above and beyond to ensure our dining experience was as good as it could possibly be. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. "

  • "We had a wonderful lunch after our daughter's graduation in town. The experience, the food and the wine were all fantastic!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Everything was perfect. Reservation was accurate, seated immediately, server attentive but not overbearing - food was incredible. Limited menu made it a little less than perfect as we had all read the menu online, however, every single plate was clean - no complaints. Our server brought complementary champagne for our table -- the table was a comfortable booth so everyone could spread out. Each dinner was cooked perfectly and delicious. Overall a perfect experience and I would go out of my way to go there if in the area again. Thank you!"

  • "We went to the steakhouse for my nephew's graduation. They gave us a nice table, with graduation specific menus. Our server was great, and the food was good. Overall a very nice experience, would recommend it!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Never having been here before, we knew only that it was a well regarded steak house. Wow, were we WRONG! The food was absolutely spectacular ( if somewhat pricey), the service impeccable, informal in an formal sort of way. The tables were far enough apart so that we didn't have to listen to the conversations around us; the wine was half-price that nite, so we had a super pinot noir; I had the escargot as appetizer - how often do you get the REAL thing? - and it was perfect. Rainbow trout w/ dill - super. Veggies, perfect. Will I go back? Oh yes we will!"
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "On a slow Wednesday night Christina gave us ample attention but not too much. She never hovered over us and we did not feel at all pressured to order quickly or to leave quickly. "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Steak was perfect! Appetizers perfect and my in-law devoured her stuffed shrimp. Three of us shared the chocolate bread pudding which was huge and a perfect ending to a great meal in a great setting."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I mean this in a good way! The food was wonderful and they had plenty for the kids.. Even though I wouldn't consider this a place to bring kids, but we needed dinner and it was the only reservations available.. How lucky we were to find it! Can't wait to return!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Took my boyfriend there for his birthday and we had an amazing time! The food was phenomenal (great tasting and great portions). The service was great and the drinks were delicious!"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "The best service we received was from the coat check girl. Service means a lot to me and these folks just don't have that portion of the equation nailed down. If that sort of thing doesn't bother you then you might like this place. With so many interesting, well-staffed restaurants in New Haven, I doubt that I will ever consider going back. In a word – mediocre "
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I must say every time I dine in this restaurant, I can honestly say I'm never disappointed. Thank you and I promise my dining experience at Carmen Anthony's is "Here to Stay"."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "We experienced a great 3 course meal for less than $35 per person thanks to the "Restaurant Week" special. My sister, the birthday girl really enjoyed her meal and the ambience. She can't wait to return! She had the Salmon and I and my other friend had the Prime Rib. All of our meals were fixed to perfection. The staff, from Greeter to Server were very nice and attentive."
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "It took over 15 minutes before a waitress approached our table for our drink orders, no excuse because we were one of the first couples to enter the restaurant. The baked stuffed shrimp had way too much stuffing and was too moist & over-powering - why not a shrimp cocktail instead? The crab cake, salad dressing, Mac n cheese, desserts, prime rib, ham was delicious......would like gravy for the mashed potatoes. Include one free beverage with dinner."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This was our first time of dining here and was recommended by friends. The bread was very hot and served with butter. The caesar salad was prepared with just the right amount of dressing. We had the New York Strip prepared medium rare and the steak was juicy ,tender and very flavorful. The service was excellent. We will definitely return for another great dining experience. You will not be disappointed. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "After reading the reviews for Carmen Anthony's I decided to give them a try. I found the complimentary valet quite valuable, especially in an area where parking can be limited at times. The food was excellent. We ordered a NY Strip and the Prime Rib. Both dishes were great portion sizes and the quality of the food was outstanding. We also enjoyed the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The Piano Player was a great addition as well to the evening. I would highly recommend and plan to visit many more times."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The service was inattentive and the food was blah. I would not recommend this steakhouse."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Great food, highly recommend for those who love a good steak cooked perfectly. A good place for special occasions with great food and friendly service. However be prepared to pay for it roughly $60 a person."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I was told this is the best steak house in New Haven, and while it was decent, okay at best, I've definitely had higher quality food, service and ambiance for less (and keep in mind this was during restaurant week so prices were much lower) so I can't recommend it."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our server Adrienne was not only efficient but she was friendly and personable as well. Carmen took time to stop by our table and inquire how we felt about our experience so far. A casual mention of our anniversary brought out a complementary glass of champagne for my "Bride" and myself. Parking was a chore but the rest of the night out celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary was excellent at Carmen Anthony's. Kudos to Carmen and his fine restaurant."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I was disappointed by the quality of service and food at Carmen Anthony. The live piano musician was awesome. I took a date to this venue, we were seated in the middle of the restaurant, next to a loud group, they did not offer us a booth, although I had made reservations. My server was not exactly hospitable and I ordered Prime Rib. The Prime Rib was juicy, but was not well seasoned. The chopped salad was not what I was expecting. The Long Island Iced Tea was just terrible, they actually charged us for the Sparkling Water, didn't find this out until I got the bill. This place is high price and elegant; I expected the service/food to be 5 Star, but not this time."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Restaurant Week - probably not the best time to see them at their finest, but a significant discount to the normal price. Their salad with balsamic dressing was quite tasty, although by the bottom it seemed a bit salty. My wife complained that the dressing was too thick, but I liked it. They also served wonderful bread, which seemed to have a brushed-on salt glaze. Combined with their soft, whipped butter it was a new experience for me. The "signature sliced filet"was very good, as was the prime rib. I especially liked the sauteed mushrooms and onions with the filet. My wife planned for a spoonful of creme brulee but ate the whole thing, I was very fond of the chocolate torte. Good for the price, but too expensive for me otherwise."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "My wife and I went here for the first time the other day for lunch. I had the sliced filet, and it was cooked perfectly and very delicious. Veggies were great, and mashed potatoes were super creamy. Excellent service. Would definitely go back!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Carmen Anthony's is always consistently good. The wine list is excellent and the wait staff is always knowledgeable about wine pairings. The dinner specials are excellent- both in terms food quality and pricing- a true value from a high end steak house."
    Dined on 4/6/2014

  • "My whole experience was a total perfection. The food, the waitstaff and the ambience was excellent, I would absolutely be back."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "the steak was a little tough, one of my guests had to return his due to overcooking, took a while to receive the replacement. The staff was very apologetic during this time, however it did take a while. Anthony our waiter was very good, very attentive, knew the menu and I would suggest him to serve any of my friends. I have been to this restaurant many times, Its a nice local to New Haven steak house."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Always a great spot! Food is terrific, although a couple of specials were pretty expensive for the food quality. If you are looking for a steakhouse, this is the one!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My wife and I spent time getting dressed up seeing that we were going to a nice classy place. When we arrived pretty much everyone was dressed accordingly as well accept for a couple with jeans on which i can deal with but when they sit someone down with a hooded sweatshirt and baseball cap that just totally ruins it for us and is unacceptable. This is the kind of nite were you hoped Tony Soparano was around to tell the idiot that they dont serve hotdogs here and took the bleachers out years ago."

  • "We have been to many steakhouses but this one really raises the bar. It was a great place with great service. I would definitely return in the future!"
