    The Ocean Grill has a great atmosphere and really nice outdoor dining. The sushi menu offers loads of choices and if not in that mood there are plenty of other excellent items to choose from. Liquor charges are fair and 50% off before 7:00 is a great deal.

    Service was non-existent/not available. Food was luke warm, dumped off at table to wrong diner with no condiments...Had to go finnd HOSTESS to get pepper and a drink while several waiters walked around talking amongst themselves. Place was EMPTY as we were there early 5:30 on a Sat. Diners wearing gym shorts and sneakers. Highly OVERATED. WON'T ever go back. Was 1st and definately last time. Worst experience. Left feeling ripped off. 1st negative review I ever wrote.

    Previous dining was better than this one. The conch and octopus appetizer had no taste except for the chili sauce on top. The grilled seafood dinner for two only provided one scallop and three shrimp with two small fish fillets and no starch or vegetables. Not worth the $45 charge. Had requested in the Open Table reservation an outside table but apparently they do not do parties larger than four for an outside table.

    The restaurant had a terrible menu....all over the place. Not Japanese, not Italian and not good. My "specialty" Watermelon Margarita was terrible and I sent it back. The food choices were odd and not inviting. The food itself was really mediocre. Never again...waste of money.

    Love Carmines for take out. This is in a great spot with a nice view over the parking lot to the marina. Food was mostly good. Singer was excellent but too Loud to enjoy dinner. went on a sunday night, didn't know there was entertainment and didn't know it was a singles scene. our table was right behind where the 40-60 year old single group was and it was entertaining but not enjoyable for dinner with 8 friends. our waiter was nice but service was slow and he got the food wrong a number of times. those who had sushi liked it, i had sesame crusted tuna which was good but not great. we decided to stay where we were instead of moving inside because it was a beautiful night. if you want music and light fare this is a great choice.

    We had requested outdoor seating with our reservation but were told, upon arrival, that the entire patio was booked for a private party. No problem... until we saw several other parties, obviously NOT connected to the engagement party, being seated. It spoiled the ambience for me as it was a beautiful evening and we wanted to be outside on the water. When I questioned the hostess as we were leaving, she said that there had been a mix-up and apologized and suggested we return the next evening. Unfortunately, we can't spring for a $90 bill everyday!

    This was our second time at this restaurant. The food was good, but we did not realize there is a band on Thursday nights. We ate outside where the band was and it was very loud, but we didn't mind because the band was excellent. If you want a quieter dinner, then I would suggest eating inside. We would definitely go back.

    We had shushi and shasimi. Food and choice was excellent. Service was the worst I have ever experienced. After drinks and ordering dinner never say our waitress til the bill. Had to ask a manager to get out food. Ambience was on the loud side. Restaurant was quite busy. Will not go back even though I like sushi.

    Had been away a while, so returning under new guidance was full of expectation. Well it couldn't have been better - the food: we had crab & avocado salads, the snapper francaise - simply to die for - and some very great quality sushi and sashimi The wine by Far Niente just completed the experience, the house wine is very drinkable too. Service was simply floorless, Mr. Li kept a close check on thinks and visited our table. the ambiance was great, the in-out bar is a very special feature, great for a drink prior to going to your table. The background music goes for popular Motown type music and is at a pleasant level. All in All a great experience, one you should try, we certainly will be back shortly for more ! - truly 5 stars

    Four of us women went in December and really loved it. We all had something different to try a variety of dishes.our servers were very professional and all of us could not wait o come back. Fast forward to April. Four of us. Couples.waitress was rude from the beginning. We asked bus. BOY to help us and he proclaimed they were not in our section or with that server. The food was just horrible. None of us finished our meal and could not wait to leave. Having been in the restaurant business for twenty years I will let allot pass, but this was just bad all the way around. From the time we walked in to front desk until we left. I would not recommend this place at all.

    We visited Carmine's Ocean Grill for our Easter dinner. Our group consisted of two Moms, two 15 year old boys and an 8 year old. We all enjoyed our food, we sat outside, which gave us the freedom to laugh and joke a little more and louder than if we were inside. The view of the docks with boats is relaxing and the lady singing was a nice addition to the setting. Our waiter, Chris was pleasant and patient! The only negative was the woman who kept coming near our table to smoke her cigarette, and we were outside so we couldn't really complain. Otherwise, we had another enjoyable time at Carmine's Ocean Grill!

    This location has had a number of restaurants. The present one is is good, if not great. Appetizers, calamari and bisque, were very good. I had the Sea Bass, which was average. My friend had the duck, which wasn't as good but what do you expect in a seafood place? Overall, we were satisfied with our experience. We had a coupon for a bottle of wine that was redeemable at Carmines Ocean Grille that was not honored. We were told that this was because of a change of ownership.

    Carmine's resturants have always had great food. Unfortunately I took my nephews for dinner on a Friday night. They live in NY so when asked inside or outside, they said outside. We were walked past a nice outside eating area and taken to a table in the middle of the crowed bar scene. Their was live music which was very loud, people were jostling and screaming. I was not happy at all. We should have been told that an outside table was only available in the bar area. We would have chosen inside. The salads came out and were delicious but 2 minutes later our dinners came out and the waiter shoved the meals onto the table. Not cool.

We got there at 6:45 pm and could not get a table outside to enjoy the view as many were already taken and/or reserved. We will request outdoor seating next time we make reservations.

    Long story short, great atmosphere, nice (albeit forgetful) staff, but food left a bit to be desired. Sushi was great, but our cooked entrees (salmon, chicken and some kind of white fish) were all over cooked and dry. The bill was adjusted accordingly, but still disappointing considering the great look of this place and its namesake.

    This is the same concept as the one from several years ago that was across the street. The place was packed-no chance to get a table outside on the water unless you request when you book. The side room was quieter so we were pleased. The salads are enormous- big enough for 2 so sharing is suggested. All the fish was good but the Crunchy Grouper was the clear winner. The staff was amenable to changes to the side dishes. The asian veggies instead of potatoes was crisp and plentiful. My bouillabaisse was flavorful but no lobster-just shrimp, clams and a piece of fish. Mom's lobster roll -listed as an appetizer was very generous and full of lobster chunks. The rolls and drinks were well sized and quite tasty.

    We went there last night, for the very first time. Excellent service, lovely atmosphere, but tiny tiny and pricey portions. We both had the bouillabaisse - which was $29.00., thinking that it would not be necessary to get appetizers, as usually it's a big pot/bowl. It took a while (there were hot rolls) and when it arrived... There was literally an inch of broth, in a wide open bowl, with a couple of shrimp, a piece of fried fish and a few mussels and two scallops! Most disappointing- and such a teensy portion!!! Would not return there!

    We enjoyed our early dinner at Carmine's. We were a party of 2 and seated immediately at a small booth. The food was excellent though we felt a little rushed. Our reservation was early and they were busy so I am sure they wanted to turn the table quickly. I would recommend this restaurant but to enjoy a leisurely meal, you might consider dining at 8 or later.
