First time at the restaurant and can't wait to return! Service was topped at 5 stars but we wanted to give it a 10 star review for the service. Shawn/Sean was our server and kept us fed, in drinks and having a great time! The food was hot and outstanding!
Wife's favorite, and quickly became one of mine. Delicious dishes! Service was very warm and personable.

Food was only average and service was slow. We then got Overcharged for our food items. Overpriced and poor service
WONDERFUL! I RECOMMEND HIGHLY!!
Food and staff did a great job.
Loved carmens cafe, it was our first time for my and my bf and we can honestly say we will be regulars. Our server was the best. Thank you guys.
It was so nice to go out to dinner after being in for so long. Carmen's was clean, the service staff were all masked up and the food was delicious. We went to Carmen's to celebrate a friends birthday, and we were ecstatic with the evening we had at Carmen's!
Great food. Service Ed a little slow. Seating at 100% capacity which made me a little nervous.
Alfredo was great as always! Wedge salad was good, but pretty drenched in dressing. Bread was very tough and hard. Will always be a loyal customer, but like to give honest feedback.
Great lighting and service and the food was amazing
Excellent evening. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We will be back.
Always a great meal, a good pour and consistently good service and value.
The steak Marsala and Judi’s Rigatoni are excellent. The wine value is also wonderful.
Save room for the tiramisu and the cannoli!
I love this place! Only thing was sad about is that I did notate it was my birthday during the reservation and it was not acknowledged. Portions are large so didn't need a dessert so I did not bring it up to the server.
Good food. Good service.
We were disappointed to learn we were not able to sit at the bar for dinner. It's our favorite part of dining at Carmens. Upstairs is not as warm. Our food took exceptionally long to prepare. At one point the waitress told us it was about ready but yet another 15 minutes went by before she came back to tell us they were backed up in the kitchen. That is not standard performance for the restaurant and I was surprised, with limited capacity due to COVID, food prep would be backed up.
Great service and delicious food was the experience... and affordable food and wine.
Normally the service is great, but during Covid they have cut staff and it has hurt them
Went in for a quick Monday night meal. Quiet room, attentive waiter and bus boy. Hot and tasty pasta.
Everything was wonderful as always! Amazing food, staff and atmosphere!
We enjoying our anniversary dinner at Carmen’s. The service and food was excellent. This was our first time there and we will definitely be back!
Always love the atmosphere & food here. Great place for a group of friends to go out. Great service too.
We love Carmen’s and it is the best Italian food in the area.
