    It was my husband's birthday. We don't live in the area - actually 150 miles or so away. A friend recommended Carmine's. She was right on in her recommendation. It was wonderful. The ambience was so nice. Peter, our waiter, was the best. He knew when to come back to see how we were doing. Not hovering, but not gone too long either. The food was superior. We had the filet. Done to perfection. House wine was excellent. We would recommend trying it. My husband was so happy with his birthday dinner. We hope to be in the Palm Beach area again and will definitely make Carmine's one of our dinner nights.

    best italian we have had so far in Florida...atmosphere is really fun with the Italian Market and lots of goodies to buy. Our waiter Patrick, make the evening an extra special evening. He was an excellent waiter and made everyone happy, including one of our diners who happens to be very fussy and particular. We will definitely return on our next trip to Florida

    The restaurant came highly recommended and I was greeted by a lovely hostess who seated me on the patio. After a 20 min wait my waiter (Robert) showed up. When he took my offer Robert ask if I would like bread and I replied “Please”. When he brought the bread he literally dropped the basket on the table. No butter, no oil, nothing…halfway thru the meal I ask for butter which never arrived. My salad was uneventful but the spaghetti was amazing! However it was a full 5 mins. From the time the server brought my spaghetti and Robert showed up to ask if I wanted parmesan. I could go on but needless to say Robert is either a short termer or a nare do well relative but certainly not a professional waiter.

    Ambience - It must have been 85 degress in the restaurant. Whether the A/C was broken, who knows. Service - has been deteriorating for years. This, however, was the worst, exaserbated by the uncomfortable temperature. Food - borline inedible -- tasteless, not well prepared and we left most of it. We will never go back. They have had too many chances already for what was once a very good restaurant.

    For the first time ever, almost no one at the table was satisfied with their food. One dish was literally inedible, and none of the rest were at all remarkable. We have been going to Carmine's for years and are hoping that we just got them on a bad day, but a restaurant of Carmine's quality shouldn't allow that to happen.

    the food and the service are always good at this restaurant. They had a promotion for the summer, which they abruptly discontinued without sending any notice that it would end. I think it is poor policy to establish a SUMMER promotion and then suddenly decide to cancel without notice.

    We went to Carmine's to sit by the water and enjoy the surroundings. It was delightful. Our shrimp cocktails were large and fresh. I ordered the Veal Marsala and it was cooked to perfection. The Caesar salad had a good taste, but the romaine was totally wilted. When we pointed it out to the waitress she apologized, but made no offer to replace or take off the bill. No manager came by the table to see what was wrong. That makes the difference between a wonderful restaurant and wonderfully average restaurant. Carmine's has been around for a long time and hopefully it will not for get it's basics that has made it one of Palm Beaches places to go.

    Service could have been better for this restaurant. It has the price of a four star restaurant but the service of a two star. The wine pour was chintzy. It was about two to three ounces. The wine glass was small and had a false bottom. The food was very good and there were many choices. Franco Corso was singing that night. He was delightful with wonderful Italian songs from the present to way back to my grandparents.

    We have eaten at Carmines several times.This last time it was spur of the moment.On Memorial Day we wanted to eat at a waterside restaurant.It was impossible to get a table unless you wanted to wait 2 hours,of which we DO NOT DO.We used Open Table and much to our surprise Carmines had a reservation available within a half hour. We were very glad we did.We were able to eat outside with the view of the marina,listen to music,which the other waterside restaurants did not offer,and enjoyed an outstanding meal. We had a wonderful day. Thank You open table

    On a Tuesday night, with many tables empty, service was awkward, inefficient and inattentive; food was unremarkable. Waiter's assistant repeatedly sought to clear plates while diners were still eating. Waiter advised one in our group that lobster was unavailable; 45 minutes later lobster was served to adjacent table. Waiter's odd consolation to our group: "I'm going to tell my manager how angry I am." Carmine's strong suit is its predictability and its reliability. We experienced, overall, a good example of a very average restaurant -- under-performing.

    We chose Carmine's for a family birthday dinner. The restaurant was incredibly busy, due to a promotion that we didn't know about when we booked, and even with our confirmed reservation we had to wait a while to be seated. Other than that, the experience was top-notch. The food was the reason we had booked at Carmine's, and it did not disappoint. It was one of the best meals I've had in a long while, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone celebrating a special occasion, or anyone who simply wants a fantastic meal.
