Carmen's 2.0 Restaurant & World Tour Menu Ratings and Reviews
We went for the 4 course wine paired menu. The portions were extra small and 3 of the four dishes were un imaginative and reminiscent of 3 star restaurant food. However, the service was excellent, being both appreciate in frequency timing, and servitude. But the killer reason to go is the environment, marble, wood, huge domed ceilings and stained glass. Don't kid anybody, we go because it is in the historic beautiful train station. I just wished the food measured up. It could really be special there.
We have been going to Carmen's on for New year Eve Dinner for 4 years. This was the most disappointing. Comparing to previous years, The menu selections were not special (basically regular menu), the food that was served was not up to the standards of a regular meal at Carmen's. The service was great, as always. We dine here often during the year, but this time is was very disappointing. It makes us ponder if the quality is degrading and if we want to continue to frequent this site during the year. Too Bad. I is a beautiful place that used to serve good food.
Although our server was excellent, she was stations at two areas on opposite ends of the restaurant and had to run back and forth, so was unable to give us her fullest attention. We had to wait at least 25 minutes to be seated even with a reservation. The food at the buffet was just so so. We may look for another location for next years Christmas dinner.
Wonderful staff, great service and excellent pasta entrees. The staff was very apologetic for not notifying us that a wedding reception was holding a cocktail hour adjacent to us during the first half-hour of our meal, but ultimately the experience at Carmen's made up for that minor mistake. Love the historic building and our wait staff was fantastic.
Elegant ambience in a beautifully restored historic building. Food and service were superb. Room acoustics were very live, due to hard marble surfaces, so people with hearing deficits may be somewhat hampered in hearing conversation. It was not busy when we were there, so this was not an issue.
Very much enjoyed the wine tasting dinner, the wine was amazing and the four course dinner was outstanding! Our reservations were at 8 and we were seated promptly, only one star lost for ambiance due to the screaming child seated right behind us (curious as to why you'd bring a child that young out so late to an upscale venue). All in all, a great place to have a quiet romantic evening (sans children) 😊
As always the experience was outstanding. We both had the Beef Filet. They were done perfectly, were delicious, and very tender. Sides were great and also done perfectly. Service, as always is the best in town. Frank, Judy & Ed work as a fine tuned team so you are never in want of anything, but without being a bother. This is our favorite local restaurant.
The woman who brought out my food was outstanding. She was very sweet and attentive. The restaurant was empty and the hostess sat me right next to a woman who was coughing. My waiter took quite a while to get over to me. He barely came back to check on me. Not impressed with the service. Ambience is beautiful. Food was fine.
My husband and I took my mother here for the most important day of the year, Mother's Day. What a huge disappointment! No where did it say that our reservation time would only give us a buffet of cold cereal, oatmeal, bacon, sausage, ham and a man making omelets or eggs or a breakfast menu and not the entire buffet. Not even a pastry! Quite the contrary. Last year we went here and although they were totally unorganized and we had to wait 40 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, they had a fabulous buffet and champagne. This year - none of that and the worst service ever from someone who had to be flagged down to ask for coffee, tea and a coke and who never checked back with us until she walked by and dropped the check on the table without so much as asking if we wanted anything else. Thank goodness for the young man cleaning our dishes away because he brought us refills and had a great personality. Will I entrust this restaurant for any other occasion? Absolutely not, but looking at other reviews, it doesn't appear that they care. That's too bad because this was Mother's Day. They should care.
My husband and I went to Carmen's 2.0 right before we went to see a show at the Scranton Cultural Center. It was our first time there, and we loved it! The food was excellent. We especially appreciated the historical charm. The murals on the wall which depict the scenes from the railroad route were definitely special. I highly recommend Carmen's. You will not be disappointed.
The service at Carmine's was very good. The waiter asked if we would like some time to enjoy our cocktails while we decided on our dinner, which was very nice. The Decor was very pretty , but was in the lobby of the hotel. We ordered the tuna special and the duck special. Both dishes we not very good. The duck was three pieces with thick fat on the duck and the risotto was under cooked. The gnocchi was very good as was the calamari appetizer.
My wife and I went for an early valentine brunch at 11:00 am on Sunday. The staff was fantastic very friendly. The food was outstanding everything fresh and hot. The selections were a good mix of breakfast and lunch but they didn't have any pancakes or blintzs. Although the service and food were very good it seemed just a little overpriced.
We have made it a yearly event to travel 2 1/2 hours to Scranton to have brunch at Carmen's and then see a show at the Scranton Cultural Center. We recommend it to all of our friends because it is well worth the drive. The brunch buffet is fantastic and we can't wait to do it again next winter!
Beautiful building with plenty of history but that is where the positives stop. Food was below average for a brunch for two that cost $65. Omelette station was manned by an employee that made it clear she would rather be anywhere else and the rest of the presentation was poor.
We went here for a holiday dinner and it was very good. We were more impressed with the wine list. A lot of good options, and very reasonable prices on some of the bottles. The ambiance is what you should go for. The restaurant is in the lobby of the hotel, and has beautiful architectury. We really enjoyed this and will go back again.
