Carmine's - Atlantic City
FabulousMy husband and I went for our anniversay. Being we were only 2 and it is a family style restaurant, our waiter was nice enough to recommend we only order 2 dishes because the portions were huge! We ordered fried calamari and an order of shrimp parmigiana, it was perfect! Delish!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThere was a ton of food andThere was a ton of food and our party of 5 left satisfied.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNot our first time at Carmine'sNot our first time at Carmine's and definitely not our last.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCarmines - - my favorite AC restaurFood, atmosphere and service fantastic..

We followed his recommendations to a great dinner.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the portionsThe food and the portions are outstanding. This is a go to retaurant especially for parties of 4 or more.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMwineThe dinner was fine, but I would have prefer having my wine in a wine glass instead of a regular glass. I will be back in September for my birthday.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMquantity and qualityI came with a small group of 5. This is a family style restaurant so dishes are large. 2 appetizers was too much for our group. Then we ordered 3 entrees which was way too much but all delicious. Definitely recommend the broiled lobster, broiled porterhouse steak and chicken marsalla. Would definitely come back here, just with a larger group next time.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM8 guys for dinner and drinksordered 4 plates as its family style, w 3 apps , was fair price and great food. highly recomend6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMmy birthday celebrationa little loud in the downstairs area.

Very similar experience.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLIKE MY MOTHERS SUNDAY DINNER!!!We ordered the Sunday gravy dinner with meatballs, sausage and brasciole with capillini macaroni it was almost like moms!!!! Very enjoyable and delicious.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTrustedI've been to the Carmine's in NYC many times and it never disappoints. The venue in AC was up to par as well. We had no complaints and the first timers we took along loved it as well.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreatCarmine's as usual was fantastic. We have eaten there numerous times and it is always a pleasure to dine there.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNot Too Hungry But Not Too FullWe went to Carmines for dinner but felt we were not hungry enough for their rather large portions, so we ordered several appetizer choices. The choices were perfect and we left feeling satisfied but not over-stuffed. Thanks Carmine for another great meal.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMvery high noise level. wevery high noise level. we ordered too much food. the food was very tasty. one salad and one entrée with pasta feeds 4.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!!This was our second time here and they never let us down. All around great restaurant!!! Recommend to anybody, any day of the week. Food is fantastic and the staff is amazing!!!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood italian food.Carmines is a great spot to go if you are looking for family style Italian food. Even if its just two of you. Great food, good prices and good service make this a very easy recommend.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA must go!!!Loved it! Superb service, great food, fab atmosphere!!!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentCarmine's should be commended for it's food that is always great & served hot. The only negative comment, some groups get quite noisy, but Carmine's can't control that.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNot for small groupsNice atmosphere, very crowded. Parking was a nightmare! Getting in and out of the restaurant was quite unpleasant.
Once we arrived the greeting person ( a white female ) seemed to be annoyed with our arrival?? After being greeted(loosely termed) we waited another 15mins. Even though we arrived on time for our reservation.
Despite all this the young man who was our waiter was VERY PROFESSIONAL a plus with the other issues.
The food was plentiful and very good.
Probably not going to visit again.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPortion size shrunkPrices went up and portion size went down. Otherwise enjoyable place for adult group to dine.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily-Style Dining in A.C.If you are intending to either visit or stay at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, you cannot do better for family style Italian dining at this entry for the Carmine's chain. The prices are a bit high but acceptable for Atlantic City, and the quality and quantity of food is very good for the price. A family of four can eat quite well for just under $100 plus beverages/alcohol. Recommended for families and groups. Some may find the atmosphere a bit noisy and frenetic, but it comes with the territory and the fact that families with children are regular patrons.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerIn our family, the person whose birthday is being celebrated gets to chose where we eat. When we lived in No. Jersey it was always Carmine's in NYC (both locations), but now that we are relocated to the SW part of Jersey, it has become Carmine's AC for my birthday!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch PortionWe, 3 of us incoule 4yrs old kid were very satisfied on Lunch special menu.
It's awesome and delicious!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMwaiter was great and foodwaiter was great and food is always yummy! Always a great time!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup spotDue to the family style portions it is a perfect spot for groups with big appetites! The veal was tender and chicken was flavorful. Great choice! We had 6 people and only needed a salad, two entrees, and a side. We still took home left overs. :o)5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the waitstaff was veru knowledgeable about the menu.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodBeen to this place 4 times already. Every time very happy with food choices. The advantage of coming with a bigger group is we get to try and share different dishes every time, and dessert as well, because we came here as a couple, the portions are enormous and we can never order dessert for the 2 of us. Will be coming back for sure.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe're Drinking HereThe food was very good and lots of it. You need to go with a group. Family style. I would not recommend it for less the a crowd of 4 people. Not romantic. Very loud. Not a quite restaurant at all.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for a groupCarmines AC is always fun for a group. We celebrated our sons 21 st birthday with our pilgrimage to the casinos for the first time gambeling with his dad. The food at carmines is always consistent. It helps when everyone enjoys the same wine. The $42.00 bottle of Carmine's red is a great affordable dry red wine. We usually go with the chicken parm, pasta with meatballs, salad and one other entree it was enough for 8 with leftovers and cheesecake for the birthday boy enough for everyone to share and not too expensive for all of the food that we had.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was runningThe restaurant was running behind schedule. But they were able to set a table for us outside the restaurant to accommodate us.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWent for a friends birthday family style was the way to go. I could not have asked for a better time. Food was delicious. Drinks were delicious. Would suggest this for anyone who loves food!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMcarminesVery great place to eat the food was excellent service was great and the staff and mangers are very friendly and respectful i will be back to eat again5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing dinnerI took my boyfriend here for his 22nd birthday.

I would definitely recommend Carmine's to anyone who wants and awesome dining experience.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCarmine's Atlantic CityCarmine's was a great restaurant with excellent service. The food is truly genuine old Italian family style. It is prepared to old standard recipe's which depend on good quality ingredients rather than utilizing wine and/or a lot of spices to flavor the dishes. I would recommend Carmine's to anybody!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Placewent there for my wife's birthday, the ac location, was bacon week, had a very good dish they had for bacon week5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious RavioliIt was gooood!! service good, although they should do something about all the noise;
it's like eating in a casino! maybe some noise absorbers, if there's such a thing...
When I have dinner at a nice restaurant, I want to hear my friends, not everyone else!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily Style DiningLots of noise and activity. Ala carte menu that gets pricey.

The resturant is awesome, family style Italian food out of this world and reasonable. Service is great.

Took another 45 minutes to get our entrees. We didn't order apps. Waitress didn't come by again for about 15 minutes after that and was seen watching basketball at bar. Forget drink refills. Took about another 15 minutes for check. Horrible service but wonderful food!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFANTASTICI love this restuarant. Every occasion I have celebrated it here.

It was a busy weekend night, so our drinks remained empty for awhile waiting for our server to take drink orders. We had a party of 8, had reservations, our table was ready for us when we arrived. Everyone raved about the food and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We would recommend it to others and intend to return soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
