    Birthday
    Dined on 6/29/2013
    My Fiance and I went here to celebrate our first year together. I had requested a quiet booth for a romantic evening. Not only did they provide for my request, but because I indicated that it was our anniversary they gave us champagne when we were seated and wished us a happy anniversary. The service beyond that was excellent as well. The food was just fantastic, as it always is, and it made for the perfect evening. As we left the staff wished us a happy anniversary again. This kind of personal attention is not something you find just anywhere, and we appreciated being able to enjoy it. We will definitely return.

    This was my first time there with my wife, and we both enjoyed our dinners very much. I had the prime rib, which was tender and perfectly prepared au jus medium rare. She had a mediterranean scallop dish that she enjoyed very much. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, and the piano player whose music was piped through the dining room from the bar was excellent

    My only issue is we were only one of 2 parties in the restaurant that night beside a private room party. Not sure why it was so quiet, but it was odd for a Saturday night.

    Dined on 6/1/2013
    We have eaten many times at Carmen Anthony's. The last time was the beginning of Jan. '13. This past Sat night we ate there with friends and I was quite dissappointed in the entree. The salmon was covered in tasteless tomatoes, onions with weak seasoning and the salmon had a few "sprinkles" of tasteless crab meat on it and it was accommanied by a very over baked, mushy, sweet potatoe with black skin. The vegetable "medley" was boiled and sterilized like one would find on a high school cafeteria food line.My meals have always been very delicious before and I was shocked that this one on Sat night was way below standard. Even my friend's shrimp cocktal was anything but fresh. Not eager to return.

    We were nine ladies celebrating a retirement. The service was outstanding, the food was very good, and the atmosphere was nice. We felt that the food was a little overpriced. All in all, a nice experience.

    Place looks nice, but overall food quality seemed as if it was all pre-cooked, and slapped together at the last minute, Pasta was overcooked, seafood was overcooked, and the sauces didnt blend with either the pasta nor the seafood... The food is very pricey. 2 entrees, 1 appetizer, no drinks, and no dessert came to $90.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/18/2013
    The prices were on the high side. My swordfish was over cooked. I did not complain. There are not many customers in the restaurant so if you like a lively place, this is not it. The wedge salad was excellent. My daughter's Filet Mignon Oscar was excellent. My wife liked her salmon although it was also over cooked a little. I miss the Carmen's in Avon. I would not recommend this restaurant due to the lack of customers. It is too quiet.

    We were seated immediately upon checking in, our server, Anthony, was excellent, could not ask for better service. Food was very good, wasn't as hot as I normally like it, but that was probably due to the distance from the buffet tables back to our table, which was very nice. Would and will recommend Carmen Anthony Fishhouse.

    I have had lunch, dinner and brunch at Carmen Anthony's and have never been disappointed. I like the idea that it is a local restaurant and conveniently located on the Berlin Turnpike. I also reserved the larger room for a women's club meeting and everything was wonderful. The staff is very pleasant and accomodating. It continues to be a 5 star restaurant. Thank you

    I've been twice and both experiences have been very good. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The service is probably most memorable. During latest visit, our server was very friendly, upbeat, funny, conversational, and attentive. Might be time for an update to the decor, but it certainly is still a very nice place even in that regard.

    great appetizers and entrees. this is the second time I've been there and although a very slow Sunday night it took way too long to get drinks, appetizers, and dinner. There were only 15 people in the whole place. No explanation or apology. It really shouldn't take 15 minutes to get a cocktail.

    Dined on 2/15/2013
    What was once a nice restaurant has fallen in oblivion. I have never seen a restaurant that was soo slow on a Friday night that seemed to have more managers than waitstaff. No wonder the food is so expensive. We will not be going back. The head manager was totally clueless and a waste of space as he was cleaning up tables which is never a good sign. The wait staff was not at fault as they were courteous and hard working but horribly mismanaged. The food was garbage. Potatoes were reheated from the night before and my prime rib ordered medium rare was like leather.

    Great food and very nice wait staff. But the restaurant is managed horribly!! I had reservations for 7:30 (valentines day) but my date and I were not sat until 8:45. They even called me the previous day to confirm the reservation. the over booked and that to me was 100% unacceptable. But everything else was nice.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    My boyfriend and I made reservations at Carmen Anthony's on Valentine's Day. We arrived 15 minutes early and were told it would be a wait... a two hour wait. After the first hour, the bartenders started to give out free champagne which was nice, but did not make up for the fact that I was standing amongst a sea of people for 2 hours for which I had made a reservation for. The food was delicious as usual, but they could have at least taken our app or dessert off our bill for the ridiculous wait we had for their apparent greediness. Would definitely not go back to this Carmen Anthony's.

    Place was clean, nicely set up for valentines day. We only had about a 10 mins wait for our seat, then the problems began. The place was overbooked for the night, we were seated for more than 20 mins before our waitress came over to take drink orders. We placed our drink and appetizer order at the same time. Another couple was seated next to us about the time we placed our drink order. They waited approx 15 mins for drinks and appetizers, and they orders came approx 20 mins later. After their appetizers came our waitress(same as theirs) took our food order. Our appetizers finally came 35 mins after we ordered them, and about 15 mins after that their food, and they were able to get their dessert order and eat it and leave the building before

    If I could give it so stars I would. Worst restaurant experience ever. Never got our meal. Assistant manager was rude, the waitress never stopped yammering and laughing instead of actually doing her job. I can't begin to convey my level of disappointment.
