    This was my first visit to Carmine's. I had read mixed reviews about the service and food quality and while it wasn't bad it wasn't outstanding either. It was a Sunday evening and the place was pretty dead. There were only 4 other tables occupied, which was a red flag when I first arrived. the service was good and attentive. the rolls brought out were very bland with little flavor at all. My wifes sea bass and lobster special was very very good, however my filet was not. the filet was a little tough, little seasoning or flavor. Sorry Carmine but I can't give this any more than a good rating. I doubt if there will be a next time.

    Some of the reviews below mentioned slow service, but not for us. Our server was prompt, attentive, and knowledgable. The food (lobster bisque, Asian vegetables, and crab stuffed mushrooms) was salty. It was still worth the experience.

    Other reviews speak to good food but poor service and good food wins out. Not with us - we asked about one of the dishes and the waiter told us "it's self explanatory." The waiter should be fired along with whoever job it is to read the Open Table reviews and do something about the poor service.

    We enjoyed out parent's 60th wedding anniversary at Carmine's and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The noise level was a bit loud. Our waitress was O.K. she would bring things out and disappear out of sight so that was an issue at times when we need her. Overall we recommend it. Highly recommend the Crunchy Grouper and Bang Bang Shrimp, as well as the Lobster Bisque.

    Dined on 8/19/2014
    We started with pan seared mussels in a broth which was very tasty. The salad of mixed greens, deep fried goat cheese and dried cranberries was ok. The Mixed grille for two, not so great: The fish (salmon and some unidentified whitefish) was overcooked and tough, as were the shrimp skewers, however the Pan seared scallops were tasty. Asian veggies were bland, but the spinach escarole mix was delicious.

    We arrived to celebrate two birthdays. We choose to sit outside not knowing the DJ would be talking over all the music he played. This made it impossible to hold a conversation. We ordered drinks, salads, an appetizer and four meals. The drinks, salads and calamari were excellent. When the main course was served we only received three of the four dishes ordered. The waiter had made a mistake on one dish and after 15 minutes the correct dinner still had not been served. It appeared as though there was no rush to fill the order.

    Dining experience was less than enjoyable. Service was slow. Had to request napkin and silverware twice. Had sushi as appetizer which was very good however had to use chop sticks as only option. Never brought silverware or napkins and did not appear until after done with appetizer. Plates were never cleared. Reservation was at 8pm appetizers came at 9:15. Dinner not until 10pm. Inexcusable given restaurant was not exceptionally busy. Food was good but unless service improves not worth the visit. Won't go back.

    Need a more streamlined menu. Dessert selection uninspired. Prices are at least 30% too high for what it was. Second restaurant in Palm Beach that was not worth the price, but now I am concerned with the quality of a restaurant that was not rated highly and in a price range slightly below. Overall, the service staff was fine. Valet parking unnecessary. Live musical guest was delightful and made all the difference. Good wine selection. Decor was nice.

    We go to Carmine's a couple of times every month. Food is always good and plenty of it. One of the best places for seafood and Sushi. Friday and Saturday nights can get a bit loud with the band but just get a table far enough away if you don't want to hear them. Service is usually pretty good. The last time we were there the service was bad. Food came out at different times and it took way too long to get it. But. ... the good was still good. I'll give them a pass this time on the service.

    We have been here several times and every time the service is horrible. Had male servers each time. They give the impression that they are too busy to wait on you as they are just scurrying by, not cheerful or friendly at all. The tables are always a mess with sushi plates and empty glasses. Every time they bring you plates of sushi (chef's choice) they never tell you what is being served, just drop off the food and leave. Never bring clean plates unless you ask. They basically just slow down as they are walking by and you can barely shout out a drink order. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE service. Thank God the sushi and atmosphere is good. On a positive note, great dirty martinis :)

    Took my parents, wife and daughter to Carmine's Ocean Grill on Saturday evening. Service from maitre'd to wait staff was first rate. Waiter was a little distant, but he performed his job very well and was very attentive. Nice wine list and served quickly after seating. I though the service from start to finish was well paced. Very nice menu from the sushi to the regular seafood selections. Everyone's food was very good to exceptional. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Felt is was worth it. All in all a lovely dinner at a beautifully decorated and maintained establishment.

    The service wasn't great at all, the hostess didn't greet us or anything she just walked up to the computer, ignored us and then said "party of two" with no care that we already had a reservation. Extremely rude and unpleasant. Sat us outside which overlooks a parking lot and then you can see the boats so the website is misleading when it comes to the view. Service took a while, the guy serving us water wasn't even friendly to say hi. The food came out and we ordered 3 sushi rolls. The rolls were decent but overpriced for the quality. Most likely will not be going back, disappointing. I love sushi in nice restaurants and at small hole in the wall places, as long as its good. But def will not be going back here.

    My husband and I just moved to the West Palm Beach area from NY and was looking for some asian fusion with a fun, outdoor setting. Carmines must be part of a larger restaurant group as we had to walk through an Italian restaurant also named Carmine's. It was packed, smelled delicious, everyone was smiling, loud, fun music...and then we left to walk into Carmine's Ocean Grill which was the opposite. It was sparsely seated, staff looked miserable, and the food was just "okay". We ordered mostly sushi, which is hard to get wrong unless poor quality. The view didn't make the mediocre food and service, more enjoyable so I would say that while I may try the Italian side one night, the seafood side was disappointing.
