  • "My wife and I generally eat at Carmine's at least 4-6 times per year, whenever we come into NYC for a Broadway play. It is ALWAYS exceptional!! If you want to eat at a popular spot, with great food and wonderful ambiance, then this is the place. Never had a bad meal or time, yet. Wonderful place. Somebody is doing it right. And during the holidays it only gets better. Definitely make reservations EARLY."

  • "Excellent food! Assorted appetizer dish included typical fare like mozzarella sticks and stuffed clams, in contrast with an unusual delectable veal loaf and eggplant-wrapped asparagus. Mussels were the only item to avoid. The house salad was absolutely perfect--just right greens; tomatoes ripened and wedged to perfection; olives and onions were just right, and the dressing was perfect in taste yet subtle. Dinner entrees chosen by our group included linguine with sausage, bracciole and meatballs; and chicken marsala. The homemade linguine was tender and cooked perfectly; the meatballs head great taste and texture; the sausage was the best I've ever tasted. Cannolli with chocolate shell was excellent. Waiter was patient & professional!"

  • "Our servers were very friendly and honest about the big portion sizes. The spaghetti and meatballs were delicious especially the flavor of the sauce. We will be back soon!!!"

  • "We visited Carmine's because it was highly recommended for Italian food -kid friendly. The food was good. It arrived in a timely fashion. But... We watched our waiter pour water and serve the food into each patrons individual plates to the customers all around us- but NOT us. It was very disturbing. This was our first family dining experience with our children in New York. My children are used to fancier restaurants and we wanted the same experience that all the other patrons received. But, we didn't get it. We were left with a pitcher of water, and our main dishes were just set in front of us. We certainly could serve ourselves, but after seeing what the other tables got, we were neglected! So, that was disappointing."

  • "The food is just excellent here. I had been before a few times and it was great to go back. It was my birthday weekend and so awesome. My companions had never dined there before and they were really impressed. I knew they would be. Get reservations or wait in line. The food is worth the wait. It is family style so you can ordered a couple different entrees and share. Excellent place."

  • "My third visit to Carmine's and every bit as good as I remembered it being previously. I consider Carmine's one of the best overall values in NYC-great atmosphere, service, location, pricing, not to mention the massive portions of delicious food! Book early and book often if you're heading to NYC! Sad we had to cancel our second reservation during our visit due to time constraints but Carmine's staff was understanding and gave no grief. Love this place-it's a 'must-do' whenever in NYC!"

  • "Since we saw the 2:00 pm Matilda right across the street, Carmine's was very convenient for dinner and they even seated us a bit early since we arrived early and had a bus to catch home early that evening."

  • "Came here for a nice dinner after a show. Was quite disappointed in how food was brought to table. It was a slow day, july 5th, and plenty of seating available. No need for the food runners to throw food on the table and run away. Bread was not the softest, actually tasted day old or was just sitting around all day. Food was tasty and price was right but the experience was disappointing."

  • "great food choices, service and scene ... have been here many times and was never disappointed!!"

  • "Thought the place was extremely overrated. We had many people tell us what a wonderful place this was to eat and how superb the food was. I, and most of the rest of my party, were not impressed."

  • "We we here twice on our vacation from Chicago & both time we were treated absolutely horrible! We let management kno 2 nite & he could care-less!!!!!! We enjoyed the food so we went back aNd was never treated as worse as we were this time! Our Server James J. Was always too busy chit chatting at the bar with others aZnd never came to our table, than another server stepped in & apologized & stated our server unexpectedly just left for nite. (As we saw our original server still at bar completely ignoring us!!!!!)horrible horrible Service! If you want great service & food go to Pepilinos in Tribeca Soho!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Carmines has the location, the service, and the food ...it is not to be missed. With only 3 diners, it's hard to order any sort of variety, since the family-style portions are the same no matter how big your group. So, with 2-3, you need to be in kahoots or prepared to eat leftovers!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great italian food is hard to come by. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Love this restaurant. Not the first time my husband and I go eat at this place. This time was better. We were 4 and were able to order different things and try each thing but when only 2 of us go, we only order one dish and share so it isn't as enjoyable cause I like to try different things. I recommend half portions so that when it is only 2 people we can orders a few dishes. Apart from that, love love love CARMINE'S!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Out of all the restaurants we ate at during our 5 days in Manhattan, Carmine's was the best for food quality and value. Dinner for 5 came out to under $100 for a 3 course meal. We were quite full and had to take some home. The alcoholic drinks were a little pricey while we waited for our table but they packed quite the punch. I was feeling it after 1. Can't beat the Times Square location either."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We LOVED Carmines. The food was fantastic, especially the chicken parmesan which I have been craving since our visit about 10 days ago. Our server was on top of everything, and we had a great table upstairs. The portions are designed to fit 2-4 people, so it is a great place to bring a group. it is loud and lively, and it is open late so it is the perfect place to go after the theatre if you want a delicious, huge, late-night dinner."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I took some friends from out of town here, and Carmine's did not disappoint. The linguine with white clam sauce was fantastic! Waitress was friendly and helpful. Great for big groups, will come back for more."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had booked Carmines for a pre theatre meal & all our party of seven enjoyed every minute of it. The only down side was that we ordered far too much food, the family portions are very big & really a waste, we ordered three main dishes between us & two would have been more than enough."
