Food was excellent, service was not great.
Not my first time there but it was a first for my husband and our friends. Everyone loved it. The food was excellent, the service was great, and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We will definitely be back!
Never disappointed! This place is a gem in Kansas City :}
Great food and service! Highly recommend to anyone!!
Food was good, but too many breaded items. Much too noisy, because of piped in music.
Girls night out! 1st time to be there and at the recommendation of my friend, we went. Very good food at reasonable prices! The pistachio dessert was amazing!
Food was awesome but we waited for it longer than expected.
The food was great and reasonably priced for the portions you get. The service was friendly and professional, adding to the overall Italian ambiance of the restaurant. Very friendly staff and prompt service.
Great place in the neighborhood to take out-of-town visitors and friends.
Love this place. It's our go to for special occasions.
Great Valentines day experience
The food was delicious!!
Valentines - food was overpriced for the quality. My date also got sick afterwards. Needless to say I didn’t get lucky. Thanks
Great Valentines Evening!
Salad wasn’t crisp, chicken spedini tasteless
I have eaten at Carmen's several times and had good food and service. I brought my son and family for a birthday celebration dinner. I ordered Steak Oscar as usual and the medallions were raw. My adult grandson ordered Salmon Oscar and stated it was mediocre. The birthday guy order Veal and the plate looked like a pile of cheese and red sauce with no garnish. It came with a small bowl of pasta and red sauce which was cold. My 12-year old grandson ordered spaghetti and meatball and he liked his food. The bread was good! No, I won't be going back!
GreAt food! Great Service!!
We went on a sat. night. the only time open was 5:30 but it worked out great. we were seated upstairs which was kind of empty when we got there but filled up quickly. the olive oil/garlic dip was delish. we also had the artichoke with shrimp and crab. I think I like the one with cheese better but it was still great. I ordered the lobster spedini which I have never had and it was great. my husband had the cannelloni and thought it was so so. all in all a great place we always enjoy.
Nice special occasion restaurant.
The wine we had was bad and a male cook was using the women’s restroom for about 15 minutes. Very unimpressed. This used to be a favorite restaurant of mine.
Carmen’s is our go to restaurant. We have never had a bad experience there. The food and service is always 5 Star!
Dinner before a play.
The dining room smelled like bleach when we first arrived, but seemed to dissipate as the room started to fill up.
Food, value and service was great.
Great experience..food, service, and atmosphere quite cozy!
Got too loud upstairs around the time my party was getting ready to leave....
Was slow service but worse parking is a nightmare and when left to lot by constatinos veholicle was vamdalized and window broken out. Over 1000 in damages ill stay in leawood.
We celebrated a birthday with a group of 10. Our server was professional, knowledgeable, took very good care of us. The food was outstanding. We had a great time
$26 steak was mostly fat. Gnocchi was fair. Calamari needed more salt. When I asked the waiter for recommendations he basically repeated the entire menu.
Good food and service at a reasonable price in a convenient location, though parking can be a challenge.
Overall we enjoyed our experience at Carmen's. Nice restaurant. Good food. The only drawback was that our waiter was definitely in a rush to get us fed and gone. I'm assuming this was so he could turn our table quicker.
The food was delicious! Our server left much to be desired though and wasn’t around much, leaving us waiting for long periods before checking on us or getting our orders. She didn’t offer any appetizers or recommendations. The assistants in the dining room were fantastic though, thank goodness...very attentive with water and bread refills. They almost made up for our poor service from our server.
Great food, large portions. Service is always efficient and prompt but usually lacks a friendliness to it.
Parking in Brookside is very difficult!
We all had something different on the menu. Everyone was satisfied with their order. The waitress messed up the order that reflects off her tip.
When you go to Carmen's in Brookside, you know it will be a nice evening with wonderful food and quiet conversation. Four of us, two moms and two daughters, have a yearly tradition of going out around the holidays for a nice meal together. It was our year to pick where to go, and Carmen's was our choice. No regrets!
Lovely new spot for us in our travels!
I took my new husband here for his birthday. He had never been and he loved it. It is by far my favorite Italian place in the city. Delicious food, relaxing atmosphere, good wine, and great service.
A wonderful experience. Our service was outstanding. Wine and food was great too!
They let us order from the dinner menu
