Carbone's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
My boyfriend and I went here for out anniversary dinner on Saturday evening. We waited 15min to be given our drinks. We odered a bottle of wine and a soda. Over the course of the next 50min, we were only attended to three times. The first was to take our order, the second for breadsticks(35min after we were seated), and the third was to tell us they messed up our order. The only reason she came to our table the third time was because I flagged her down as she was attending another table. She finnally came to our table and says she put in my order of beef brisket, but failed to input my boyfriends order of a NY strip steak, saying she entered in the order as a veal dish. How do you get that wrong when the steak itself is a $50? After trying to sell us the steak even after she messed up, she brought us out a salad as a courtesy. Why would we wait another 30-40min for a steak when my dish has already been cooked? She brought me my dish and my boyfriend a salad. Okay, now she takes the $50 off our bill and gives us a $50gift card to come back again. Upon cashing out, I mentioned it was our anniversary and we were pretty disappointed that they messed up. We were given a sorry and come back again. Now why TF would we go back? We spent an hour waiting for food that wasnt even hot. Honestly, for being rated such a great place, this was not a good experience. And btw, when I made reservations, I put in detail that this was for a special occasion, romantic dinner for anniversary. Nothing was acknowledged. Huge disapointment.
Our evening was made special by our conversation with John, the asst manager(?) and Maria who prepared items tableside for us. We so enjoyed the artwork surrounding us. A happy scene of a farmers market leading us to enjoy our vegetables all the more! Both our dinner were very good. Mine Halibut wrapped with prosciutto and my husband's short ribs so tender! Our appetizers were ok, not as special as our main entree or the dessert! The Octopus was rather bland and really should have been much more flavorful.
It was a lovely evening. Nice to be around Professional servers and cooks!!
We ere very disappointed from what we heard about this restaurant. We were a table of four and every part of the meal was delivered to the wrong person at the table. We were overcharged for by seven dollars for one of our drinks. And at the end we were just brought the check and never asked if we wanted coffee or anything else.
Food was good, service was adequate at best. Our seating was terrible. Jammed into a corner where the table didn't fit, only place for our feet was on the feet of the table and although I had a decent view of the restaurant, my wife could only see the wait station and kitchen. We were there for anniversary but were never able to get comfortable. With a better table and better service it would have been an enjoyable night with good food.
We have been dining at Carbone's for 14 years. We were celebrating our 13th Wedding Anniversary . In the past, I would have rated everything outstanding. The attention to service by the staff and management wasn't the same this time. We were disappointed that there weren't any specials, but perhaps that changed since the last time we were there. Our server entered our order wrong and I had to wait for my entree. Food was outstanding, I would have preferred to eat with my family. I didn't want to have their fresh meals held. We asked for another soda for our son and it was forgotten. I was offered a bag for my leftovers and it was forgotten. The ladies room was not clean. At that point I was ready to leave. Our bill was incorrect and I did ask to have that corrected. It is unfortunate, but I told my husband that it didn't meet my expectations and I don't want to go there again. I hope that others have a better experience. It makes me a little sad because we have always loved Carbone's.
This place is just wonderful for special occasions. The menu has great Italian and alternative choices. Service was colorful and exceptional. Meals were uniformly excellent. One notoriously picky restaurant goer was thorough pleased. Kind of and old standby on the Hartford cuisine scene to me...for good reason as it is the one I measure the rest of them against. Can't go wrong for a special occasion here. Take THAT to the bank.
