Paul the bartender is fantastic and remembers every wine and meal you have had!
food was very good, although all of the dishes were unnecessarily salty. The calamari appetizer was salted prior to being served.
Food was outstanding especially the tableside Caesar salad. The service was excellent.
My reservation asked for a quiet area. The conversation at adjoining table so noisy I couldn't converse with my partner. Service was slow and waiter not as attentive as he should have been in a decent restaurant. The wrong desert was delivered to table. I had ordered a gelato, but the flavor reported by the water turned out not to be available. We waited so long for a simple gelato that we finally had to give up and leave without it. Food not bad, but not really good either. Presentation was unappealing. There was nothing positive I can say about the restaurant except for the availability of on site parking. The experience was unacceptable even had the prices been very low. Carbone's in Bloomfield far better.
Service, food, and drinks were great. We highly recommend Carbons Restaraunt for all occasions.
Went for restaurant week and enjoyed the meal
Wait staff was pleasant and efficient
Parking can be a little hard
Food was delicious from the warm freshly baked bread, capris salad with tomatoes that tasted like they were right of the vine, to my pasta dish which was packed with big chunks of lobster. My husbands salmon was cooked perfectly! Wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. My only complaint was the hostess which is really too bad as she is the 1st person you see and she sets the tone. She was not welcoming, did not smile once, looked right through me and attempted to greet the couple behind me, then asked me to wait and immediately sat 3 groups that were behind me - one did not have a reservation (we did). Please do not underestimate the importance of making folks feel welcome when they come to your restaurant!
The waitress was terrific. She helped us with our selections and made our experience very enjoyable. The food presentation was very nice. The food itself was tasty. We had a very enjoyable evening.
One of our favorites - great food, drinks, and service!
restaurant week very small portions ...chicken dish was actually two tiny tenderloins and a dollop of mashed potato
Excellent dinner, excellent service, excellent everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We took advantage of a fixed-price promotional menu. The food was outstanding and our team of servers was extremely efficient. We will definitely be returning to Carbone's more often.
I do not know how Carone's Hartford improves upon Excellence, but it always does. is always
Very busy evening.. Food was excellent. Felt a bit rushed.
A Hartford landmark that is consistently great! The library area is a great place for a dinner date!
Carbone's never disappoints. Food and service were excellent. Taste of Hartford menu was excellent.
The food, of course, was outstanding. The service on this particular evening was awful. Our waitress really didn't wait on our table; her assistant, who was relatively new, waited on us the entire evening. I'm not sure if our waitress was too busy with other tables, but it also took so long for us to get served. I felt bad that this waitress was going to receive the tip when her assistant deserved it. If this was our first time dining at this restaurant, I would never go again.
Carbones never disappoints. Alittle pricey but you get what you pay for!
Delicious. Never a disappointing experience. Excellent food and professional and efficient wait staff. My favorite place for years.
Went for our anniversary and the Taste of Hartford 2018 menu. All items were very good, but Caprese salad was a little skimpy and they ran out of native tomatoes. Our friend did not enjoy the Eggplant Rollatini as much as we enjoyed the salmon and chicken picatta dishes, as she felt it was light on the eggplant and heavy on the ricotta cheese. Both desserts were excellent, and service was very good.
We went during Taste of Hartford and the staff and food were great. Will definitely be back.
As always, exceptional service and great food. It was my daughter's birthday and the staff made it special. Love the table side cooking - spinach salad, desserts. We all had pasta dishes and brought home. My favorite dessert - bananas foster!
We took our neighbors to Carbone's for the Taste of Hartford special pricing since they had never been there before. The Taste of Hartford menu was wonderful with several options, all of which were delicious and we just couldn't pass up this terrific bargain!!!
If you like Italian Carbone’s is where you need to go. So good and so flavorful. Love the eggplant, ravioli or chicken meals. Veal excellent too and steak sirloin tips are so yummy.
The cosmos and martinis are so different and taste just like they should - I got the watermelon cosmos and it was so good with a piece of watermelon on the rim
Bread and the oil dip is really good. Desserts are just enough and the coffee is so rich, the service and attention to making your visit enjoyable is the best. Your water glass is always kept full. I would go back again and again. In fact we do.
Carbone's is our favorite romantic spot. They know our favorite table, the wait staff is always accommodating and the food is authentic old world Italian.
The waitress bordered on rude. She barely spoke to us and acted annoyed. The only thing we could think of was she wanted us to order from the pricier regular menu - we decided to go with the specials on the Taste of Hartford menu, which we was the very reason we had gone there! Our advice to her: next year, take a 2 wk vacation in July when Taste of Hartford comes back!
It was my first visit to Carbones, it was amazing. The food was delicious , it was restaurant week so the value was fantastic. All four of us loves our appetizers, entree and desserts. The wait staff was also impeccable!
"Restaurant Week" is not the ideal time to appraise an establishment, but kudos to the staff for their efficiency, cheerfulness and general quality on the limited budget menu. A restaurant that has been around for 80+ years is pleasing a lot of people. Despite all the changes in their neighborhood, they seem to have thrived and progressed beyond standard "Italian-American" fare into something a little bit more sophisticated. We very much look forward to returning on a more typical evening to sample some of the more intricate dishes. The wine list offers a good balance of predictable and some more unusual choices.
We came during the taste of Hartford, so the value was phenomenal. I had the arrancini, salmon and chocolate hazelnut dessert and all were delicious. My husband had salad, chicken picata and the same dessert and was very happy. I also enjoyed a gigantic glass of their special sangria which had lots of fruit and was the best I have ever tasted. If you are a sangria fan, I would highly recommend it . We were running late and our very accommodating waitress made sure our orders were placed and served quickly, so we could make our show. I would not hesitate to recommend Carbone's.
Went to Carbone's with a friend for restaurant week $20.18 deal. Our food was excellent, the employees were very friendly and efficient, and we loved the decor of the restaurant. We may go back again before the promotion ends on July 29!
Always a fantastic experience. Wonderful, creative menu served by knowledgeable weight staff in a very pleasant atmosphere. Go often and love it every time.
Went for The Taste of Hartford. Excellent meal for $20.18. Cant be beat!
Superb food and service, taste is Hartford was awesome value .we were there to celebrate our anniversary and they made it so special for us
Returned for birthday dinner after 20 year absence, what a Gem for Hartford area is this restaurant! Impeccable service, classy but not presumptuous, great food, not just the same Italian dishes you see on every other menu (thank God for no avocado toast!) We will definitely return soon.
This meal was absolutely delicious. The service was first class.
Food and service re the best. They take very good care of you. Best bread in the area too.
I experienced the Roman dinner on the last night offered, it was superb.
Another wonderful evening at Carbones! We all enjoyed the Roman Feast.
We love going to Carbone's but this visit wasn't their best night! I had a fish special which wasn't very flavorful, my friend had veal that she had to return because it was tough. They did bring her another order which was better, but since the rest of the group had already finished eating she had them pack it up. I'm sure we will go back, but this time was very disappointing.
Everything was simply great !
