Diner Reviews
  • "We had food allergies and they were very accommodating while still having great food."

  • "Whenever we're in the city we make it a point to eat lunch at Carmine's before our matinee show. Food and atmosphere always amazing!"
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "From the appetizers to dessert, Carmine's is outstanding. Cannot even count how many times we have been to this place and every time the service and food is outstanding. We had fried calamari, the best wings in the world, chicken parm, lasagna, and the special lamb chops with vegetables. Cannot even begin to tell you how delicious the whole meal was. We fed six people and had plenty to take home. The service was fantastic. Thank you for a memorable experience."

  • "Delicious, plentiful, original Italian food. There were 4 of us from Ottawa, Ontario that made the trip and made reservations in advance. Glad we did as there was at least an hour wait. We all loved the food and the service .As an Italian that knows great home style Italian food and expect a lot from eateries such as Carmines, I was not dissapointed and in fact was very impressed. We had the ragu fettucini with meat combo (meatball, Italian sausages, chunks of beef). Pasta was perfectly cooked, al dente and the meats were succulent. We had enough food to take away and have leftovers the next day. We will be back. BRAVISSIMI!"

  • "If you love Italian food, then you have to make a reservation at Carmine's. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. It is how great Italian food is supposed to be eaten, with the people you love and enough to take home for tomorrow."

  • "Excelente cardápio, ótimo atendimento e carta de vinhos e bebidas."

  • "I booked reservations over a month in advance and so glad I did. This is a popular place. The line was out the door and down the street. Once you get inside and are waiting for a table there is absolutely no space. Luckily we made reservations before our trip and that made for a great experience. The service is so-so. But the food totally makes up for it. The calamari was so tender and delicious. The chicken parmigian was the best I have ever had. Remember this is a family style restaurant. One dish will feed 3-4 people. So will the appetizers. Also Carmine's is literally right across the street from the Minskoff theater on Broadway so if you are taking in a show this place is perfect before or after."

  • "Nice environment. Some waiters are not too friendly, did not offer any specials until asked. Rolled eyes back a few times. Not detail oriented."

  • "We were early for our reservation and were sat immediately. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The noise wasn't too bad when we got there, it was 11:40 am but by 12:45pm the restaurant had gotten crowded and the noise volume was much louder which made it difficult to talk to each other. We had spaghetti and meatballs, it was a very large portion for 2 people and very good. We would go back, if in the area."

  • "Every time we come into the city we go to Carmines's to eat. This was the first time that we did not have to wait for a table. The last time which was last year we ended up waiting for one and a half hours with a 6 year old. It was very hard. So glad that we used Open Table for a reservation. We were seated immediately, our waiter took our order quickly and we did not have to wait long for our food. The hot antipasto was fantastic as was the lemon chicken. We also had the house wine."

  • "THIS WAS OUR FIRST TIME DINING AT CARMINES ON WEST 44TH STREET. WE HAVE TRIED MANY TIMES FOR RESERVATIONS. IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET A RESERVATION THAT IS CONVENIENT FOR YOUR VISIT UNLESS YOU PLAN MANY MANY MONTHS AHEAD. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS, AND OUR SERVER WAS OUTSTANDING. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND TO OTHERS, BUT NOT NECESSARILY FOR A LAST MINUTE TRIP TO THE CITY."

  • "My family has been eating at Carmines for many years. For the first time ever, we were seated and waited 15 minutes before a server, not out server, came over to greet us. He. Ryan, was nice enough to go over the menu and ordering with us and even took our drink order in our servers absence. Ryan apologized several times and kept checking on us. We were seated up stairs at 11:45 AM Saturday August 16 Our server did show up with the drinks and was fairly attentive after"

  • "We were searching for a quick place to eat near the hotel- Marriott Marquis. We walked two blocks and were able to get a great table at this Italian food gem. The portions are unbelievable. We had 4--needed another 2 to really finish the food. We ordered a salad, pasta entrée with meatballs, side of sausage and side of sautéed spinach. We had enough for 6!! The wait staff was super helpful with picking the right amount. The plates are just BIG! Come hungry and expect left overs."

  • "Went here for my birthday with the family. The food was excellent and the atmosphere fantastic. Gets very busy so service suffers a little but we had a great time. This is unpretentious old school Italian American. Not haute cuisine, not a venue to close a business deal but great family fun."

  • "It is a tradition to eat at Carmine's when in the city. We love the place for its food and locale. This time we were unhappy with our carbonara pasta--dry and sticky, not creamy at all. But our grandson swooned over his chicken dinner and the tiramisu dessert. We will still always have Carmine's on our list."
