A word from Carmine's - Atlantic City
Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.Continued

  • "Great food just make sure its more than two of you eating because the portions are very big!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We've been to Carmines in Atlantic City as an annual trip for the past 4 years. Maybe the server was having an off day because our service sucked. I new we were in trouble when I asked how the chicken wings were prepared and he said they come in 24. Okay!! And the seasoning? We waited quite a while for our food and then realized he placed the wrong order, a very expensive seafood dish...so as we waited for what we had ordered it went down hill from there. The server kept apologizing which got a little annoying after the 3rd time. Also noticed he was apologizing for something at the table next to us too. So no big surprise when we overheard him arguing with one of the other waitresses. Awkward!!"

  • "You must have a healthy appetite to eat here - the food is great, but as it is served family style - there is a LOT left over if you don't have the right number of people. We had 4 people and still had leftovers, but it was a great experience."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "The servers were barely around. We repeatedly were brought the wrong items, the servers were not bringing us water or clearing plates. The waiter threatened to charge us for a dish that they brought us by mistake. It was a very awkward serving experience, however, the food was good. It wasn't anything special for Italian food, but it was decent."

  • "Great beef tenderloin! Service was far lacking... Our server was brand spanking new and did everything wrong but the food made up for it!"

  • "My husband and I went to Carmine's for his birthday dinner. The Hot Antipasta appetizer was very good and very filling. For dinner we had the veal marsala dinner over linguini. The pasta was cooked perfectly but they skimped on the amount of veal in the dish. We are not big people or very big eaters but for the price, more veal could have been added to the dish. "

  • "Love Carmines! It our favorite place to dine UN Atlantic City! Food was awesome. Service was great. We usually get the same meals but this time decided to try something new and it was delicious. Thanks Carmines for a great dinner once again!"

  • "Been to Carmine's in Manhattan a ton of times but, the calamari in AC was the best. Cooked perfectly! Group of 8 with kids too and food service was very fast but, never felt rushed! Great meal and affordable with lots of leftovers. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The server seemed overwhelmed by how many tables she had, we had to flag down a server to order more drinks or to tell her something about the quality of the food. The food came out half at room temperature and one if the dishes was dry and tasted sour. We love Carmine's but this dining experience was not a good one!"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "The food was great but be please be aware that one portion can feed at least 4 if not 6 people! I've been there numerous times and the food is always good!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014

    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "I originally made a reservation for 7pm on a Saturday evening. 7:45 we grew a bit impatient after seeing one group of men slipping the host cash and watching the host pull three tables together to "get them right in". There was also countless groups of women who walked up and hugged the host and were also escorted right into the restaurant. Finally we were seated since we did not bribe nor hug anyone but patiently waited. The menu is on the wall and we were not offered table menus. It's a dimly lit area and we were placed behind a half wall and in a corner. We are in our 20s and still couldn't see the menu. The disappointments of not being a valued customer just ruined the whole experience. Will never ever return."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We made reservations for 7 pm only to wait at the door until 7:30 we ordered the chicken parm the normal portion expected at carmine's was cut to 2 pieces of chicken ,and the waiter was not attentive . I will not return."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The large portions can easily feed 3-4 so if you are with just one other you have to eat the same thing and the portion would be very big"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our server Ramon was fabulous. He 'explained' the portions so we didn't over order. He was attentative without being overbearing. We enjoyed our evening greatly"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "No problem with accommodations for a party of 7. We were greeted by Italian bread and basil dipping oil. After a champagne toast and drinks, appetizers came out promptly. There was plenty of food. Since it was Friday during Lent, we ordered the Pasta special with shrimp, mussels and scallops and a Pasta w/ Vodka Sauce. Pasta was cooked perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed the waiters/waitresses singing Happy Birthday to my daughter and presented a huge ice cream Sundae with a surprise Chocolate cake inside. It was the bomb and enjoyed by everyone."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Don was a fabulous waiter. He took great care of my party of 9 people. He explained about it being family style and was very knowledgeable about the menu. He had an upbeat attitude and was an overall pleasure. Ill be sure to go back and personally ask for him."

  • "The food is good and the family-style eating works well for groups."

  • "The food was great but the restaurant was very noisy. It was hard to hold a conversation."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The larger the group, the better the time! Service was very good, food was fabulous and would not hesitate to go back again!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The Italian food is so good it reminds me of visits to my Aunts house for Sunday dinners where you're stuffed and need a nap after. Everything is fresh, homemade and absolutely delicious. You leave the table completely satisfied. Everything I've had so far has been fabulous. Service from everyone is friendly, courteous and attentive."

  • "This place is a great place for a large group of people.. The food is good and the service is well."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was really good and loved the circle - family style table, but you still couldn't hold on a conversation due to the noise. I realize it's in the casino and you can't control crowds, but the noise level took away from the experience. We left that night with a full belly - but a headache."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great food great service, only issue was many large parties going on and they seat them in the same area. 4 very loud parties when we were there."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Carmines has changed over the years from early days in NYC. it has become more of a quantity rather than quality establishment. not saying the food is not good, it is ok, but it has become more know for the amount of food rather than high quality taste. And I find it to be extremely expensive."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Went to Carmines in AC on Friday evening. The food was outstanding, clams, shrimp parm and rigatoni with broccolli. The server was very helpful. You need to come rhere with a huge appwtite. Im still full 2 days later! Its a fun place to go with friends and family. You wont be disappointed."

  • "the guys were spending the weekend in atlantic city and i made us reservations to carmine's ,my wife and I love it there so I figured with four of us guys family style was a good idea.The food is great and service is the best,we all decided on a pasta dish with a side of garlic bread and two bottles of wine,the food was so good and we could not even finish it all.I would recomend the location in atlantic city or in the bahamas,I have been to both and still think of the good times we had."

    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Our appetizer came to the table the dinner followed quickly so we felt a little rushed..the restrant it self was busy and a little Loud but for good food and drink with pretty good service was worth it I would say !"

  • "This was the first I had been to this restaurant in a very long time. I was disappointed in the quality of the food and found it very overpriced. Granted it was a large portion, but it kept us from all being able to order different items to satisfy all tastes. We had to compromise a lot. And I have to say that the food was only OK. For that price it should have been great. Their competitors produce a better quality at a better price point. And the service was slow for drinks. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless they had a very large group and didn't care if the food was great."
