  • "Carmine's was highly recommended and now we know why. Reservation was right on time. We had a great inside table and were promptly greeted by our server for the evening. Dry spices were offered for olive oil dipping of our bread selection. Wine and cocktails were ordered. Salads were cool and crisp and the soup robust and tasty. Most main entrees were offered in petite size and were found to be more than generous. We did have to return one as it was not quite warm enough, but were not disappointed by this minor delay. Everything was very flavorful. Dessert was shared, coffees offered. There was no rush in leaving the table as we chose to sit and chat a little longer. We left the table satisfied and happy we made the drive North to visit."

  • "First time eating here, was highly recommended. Excellent service. The seafood risotto was amazing. I will definately sit outside next time. The outdoor seating looks over the marina."

  • "When serving roasted potatoes with a meal they should be fresh. Our potatoes were all shrunken inside and tasted as if they had been around a couple of days. The chicken on both meals was fine. Service was almost non-existent. We almost got up and left...in hindsight too bad we didn't.. The only saving grace is that it was a beautiful night and we were eating outside."

  • "Visited Carmine's for the first time with friends who live locally and go often. Being well traveled with high standards we were not disappointed. The service was top-notch, the specials were explained in detail and wines were well recommended. I had the special saffron risotto with lobster and crab and it was exceptional. I will definitely be back the next time I am in town."

  • "It was unusual for Carmine's, but we waited first for the bread to arrive. The waiter seemed inattentive throughout the meal. At the time to pay our bill we waited at least 10 minutes for him to take our payment for the check. He still didn't come so we brought our check to the receptionists who then sought out the waiter to deal with the bill."

  • "Although I've never had a bad experience at Carmine's and it's one of my favorite places to go, the service Friday evening was, on a scale from 1-10, a 4! The waiter didn't even tell us the specials! Also, the shrimp I ordered to accompany my caesar salad was grilled with a ton of salt. Our waiter never even came to the table to refill our drinks! We had to ask a bus boy to find our waiter several times. Very disappointed this time and did not like the fact that we were basically ignored the entire time we were there."

  • "We've been returning several times each trip to West Palm Beach, and always find Carmine's to be presenting consistantly wonderful, authentic Italian food! If asked, they'll even do something that isn't on the menu for you! (assuming they are not too busy!) My wife loves the way they do "clams casino," which are not normally on the menu - once again, they made them for her!"

  • "Enjoyed the view and ambiance of the restaurant. It was early and not crowded so noise level was low. Food was very appetizing. They had featured wines along with a varied wine list. The service was good but nothing exceptional. We wanted a relaxing slow meal so it was perfect for us."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We were sat at 7:15 and after we spoke to a manager, the hostess and multiple waiters we did not receive even a glass of water until 7:45. Our table got up multiple times for service and the manager could care less to speak about the situation. The day after I called to speak with a manager and they refused to speak to me and the hostess on the phone said they wouldn't even do anything even if I spoke to them. After complaining more times than we should have nothing was done for us. Not even a cup of coffee on the house."

  • "A spot we never miss when in the area. Sit out near the marina for a very pleasant dinner. Menu is extensive and should satisfy any taste. Stop at the market next door and bring home some delicacies."

  • "This rresstaurant has a great, lively atmosphere. The food is classic italian and very well prepared, plus you won't go home hungry."

  • "Good food, but terrible service. Such a shame because the service is so inconsistent. We were there early before the restaurant got busy, so there was no excuse for the lack of service we received. The evening started with the waiter spilling a drink on my husband (and still charged for it!). He never once returned to see if anyone at the table would like a second drink or bottle of wine. We went the entire evening with no knives (through bread and appetizer). When the meal arrived, I asked another server if she would let our server know we needed knives. Not only did he not bring knives to the table, but she walked past us three times and did not bring knives. I finally had to go ask the hostess for knives. The server never apologized."

  • "Every restaurant has it's down day or night. While Carmine's is not fairy tale perfect, it usually delivers. We were a party of six on a Sunday afternoon in time for one guest to have breakfast which was delicious. Main course salads were very wonderful while sandwiches were a little disappointing - just bland. Turkey had no flavor at all which was sad. Nevertheless, Carmine's is here to stay and should not be missed (esp the market!) if you are visiting."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We did not enjoy our evening. The crowd was too loud, the music too loud - couldn't even hear myself talk. I wanted to substitute linguini for basic spinach and was told that there would be an additional charge if $2.95 - on top of the $29.95 cost of the main dish. I will never return to Carmine's Trattoria. The waiter was also not very attentive. Our party chose not to stay for dessert and coffee for all of the reasons listed above."

  • "Food was good, service was good - a great neighborhood standby - either for casual dining or for special event."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Had requested a view and/or outside; were given a very comfortable booth for six that had neither, with distant lightening flashes in the sky. Having never sat inside before, we found the atmosphere to be much more sedate than the extremely lively outside seating scene. Service was excellent and so was the food, as usual. So now we know there is more variety to the Carmine's experience than we had realized. If weather cooperates, the outside seating next to the marina would be our first choice but the booth where we were seated inside was just fine."

  • "Great spot for Italian. Outdoor dining has nice view of Marina. Is somewhat over crowded during the season and especially on Friday and Saturday evenings.. The tables are very close and the noise level can get high All in all a good spot."

  • "We went over Presidents day weekend and waited 2 hours for our main course. We had Chicken Parm and pasta dishes. We were a group of 10 but we waited over 2 hours and 15 minutes for our food. Our carbonara was served with raw noodles and the food was brought out luke warm. We had a reservation and we were seated right away but service really was terrible even though our waitress was nice. We come here a lot but probably not again on a busy weekend."

  • "We've been here several times and the food is always amazing. On this last visit I had to send the wine back (tasted like vinegar) an the service wasn't great. But, the food is always fantastic!"

  • "I was in the gardens for business, and looking. To take out some clients for a good time. Well I found it at this great la trattoria! We sat outside because it was one of those rare Florida nights where there was virtually zero humidity. The table was in the bar area and was served by the bar keep, often times this can be tough because they have to take care of some many folks. But not with sandy, she was incredible, she ordered our apps, as well as our entrees and we ate family style. We started with a nice pizza, which was Incredible, accompanied by a sautéed mushroom. We then had a filet, an awesome fish dish, and a bolognese that was over the top. All in all a 10 out of 10!!!"

  • "We had a reservation for a party of 6. Four of our party arrived early and were out at a table way on the edge of the outdoor seating area. Rain had begun and we asked to be reseated as we had been at that table on a previous occasion and ha gotten wet! My husband politely asked for our party to be re- seated. At the same time a 6 top was being cleared and he asked if we could be moved to that table. He was told another party with reservations was going to be seated at that table! He informed the hostess we also had mad a reservation. She the replied that the people she was seating requested that table! Really, does she think we were born yesterday?!"

  • "While not a frequent diner at Carmine's, we're always pleased with the food and service. Our waiter encouraged my wife and daughter to split a Caesar Salad, rather "eating leftovers for breakfast"... wise advice. While my daughter's main course was a bit salty, the rest of our dining experience was delicious."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Unless you want to wait in line for 20 minutes just to check in and then be at a table where you can't hear the person next to you. I told the manager that I missed cocktail hour at the bar because I had to stand in line so long. He told me that they had 400 people and I should be prepared to wait for my food as well."

  • "It was noisy because we ate outside, under a roof structure, with a terrific singer who did Neil Diamond. Inside is much prettier, more elegant, and quieter."

  • "Having dined and enjoyed Carmine's for many years, we were totally disappointed on this night which was my husband's 72nd birthday celebration.There were 7 of us,our round table request was not honored,the table was not set properly,missing proper glasses& silverware.When our order finally arrived,servers were standing around,not knowing who gets what.My order was completely wrong.The restaurant wasn't busy, the service was not attentive and we are considering never going back."

  • "Tried Carmine's again since we had fond memories of having some great meals there years ago. Food unfortunately has gone way downhill. My swordfish was not fresh, was full of fat and and had no taste whatsoever except for the charring from the grill. My husband ordered saltimbocca which came covered in brown gooey sauce,completely obliterating any flavor the dish might have had. I told the waitress that I thought my meal had been substandard and she brought the manager to the table. I never complain but I thought the restaurant should know what they were serving to their customers. Instead of being apologetic, the manager was insulting and insinuated that by complaining I was looking for a discount on my meal!!! We will never go back!"
