Dinner for family & friends before my daughters prom. Great food, atmosphere & service as usual! We go to Carmen's every year before prom & will continue to do so!
I finally managed to force myself to order something besides the chicken I usually get and it was great. Perfectly prepared salmon!
Best chicken Spiedini in KC! My favorite is Chicken Spiedini Beatriz. It’s not on the lunch menu but if you request it they will make it.
Loved the cozy atmosphere and ambiance, and the food was amazing with incredibly fast service. So many good options here!
Enjoy the atmosphere in the food...always go there for a special night with my partner. Great wine and quiet atmosphere to share with someone special.
We ordered an artichoke and there was hardly any filling in it. My husband ordered steak modiga and it wasn't even in breadcrumbs. Was plain steak with mushroom sauce over it.
Love the place. Great food
Attentive service and world-class paella made this a memorable dining experience.
Great family friendly place yet with an intimate relaxed feel. Everyone enjoyed their dinner choices and the wine was very good and many choices were very reasonably priced. The server did a good job, however seemed a little rushed while greeting us and subsequently when she took our orders.
We had a delicious meal! The food is consistently prepared and always great!
Great. Food was off the chart good.
Daniel, our Server was attentive, professional & friendly. He made our dining experience amazing. The Host Staff & Management also greeted us in a cordial manner as well. Our food was scrumptious!! Always pleased when we dine at Carmen's.
Carmen's is fabulous. Excellent food (including the best house salad in the city) and superb service.
Again, had such a great time! My husband took me here for my birthday, and the staff and food were excellent! We started with the Italian butter - if you love garlic, you'll love this. Then he had the chicken spiedini Alexa, and I had the salmon diablo. So, so, so good on both - there was more than enough to share with each other. To end it, we shared the pistachio cream tort - so moist and tasty! All while being served by the nicest waitress. I would highly recommend this place for 2-4 people. Outside of that, it might be a little crowded, unless they open the upstairs that night. However, it is worth the drive!
Thanks - always a great go to restaurant.
Really like this place. Intimate little bar, good food, friendly folks.
It took over an hour for our food to come out after we ordered. We had to track down the waiter to get updates on the delay. When we finally got an update it turned out the manager sent home 4 members of the kitchen staff. This was Friday night at 7pm, why on earth would they do that? When we complained about the wait we were told they could take 1 glass of wine off our bill. When we left for the night the neither the manager or hostess would make eye contact with us and basically turned their backs as we walked by.
Warm service at this neighborhood restaurant. Large variety of menus options to make anyone happy. We went o the spur of the moment and happy we did.
Food was fantastic but the service was exceptional!
We love going to Carmen’s in Brookside! The food is always wonderful and the same wait staff has been there for several years, making the service consistent. We love the stuffed artichoke and Italian butter appetizers. We always have leftovers from the generous portion sizes.
This is my new favorite spot. Five stars for everything— food- service-ambiance!!!!!
it was our first time trying the steak modiga. it was excellent. the meat was so tender and the dish had a great flavor. the chicken spedini was delicious as always.
Wow we had a great experience. The food is always consistent, but this time our server really made it special. Very professional, friendly, and his "buon appetito" made us smile at the authenticity in this favorite little neighborhood restaurant. Lots of competition in Brookside now, but this is one not to be overlooked.
Great food, very nice and friendly service and reasonably priced. 5* experience.
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
