Very well served. Good taste and volume of food.
Très mauvais service.
This was our second time at Carmine’s. The food was once again out of this world! I come from an Italian family and this place feels like home!
The restaurant was extremely accommodating even though we arrived 1 hour before our actual reservation. One caveat was plainly stated that there was another reservation coming 2 hours behind us. Being that we were a hungry family of 5 who rarely dawdles more than an hour at any restaurant, that was fine with us!
The chicken parmigiana came out ice cold... ugh
In the heart of the Manhattan theater district, this restaurant is a must go dining.
The staff is friendly and accommodating. Our waiter immediately asked if we had been there previously and explained the family style portions. He made suggestions when asked and was attentive to our requests and desires. Since it is located in the the Times Square area, they are always making sure you will get to your show/play on time.
The food was perfectly prepared and we were pleasantly surprised that every dish was to our tastes. The pasta was al-dente, the shrimp fra-diablo was spiced, but not over the top, the escarole was great, the baked clams were prepared just the way we preferred. The best touch was the baked mushrooms with spicy sausage.
The portion size was lovely and we all ate heartily with no left overs.
We received our check in a timely manner and get to the theater on time.
We highly recommend going to Carmine's and experiencing the value and delightful food. Remember to compliment the lovely staff on their professionalism and quiet attentiveness to your dinner.
Always a great meal at Carmine’s. The chicken scarpariello is amazing!!!
Yes it’s noisy but great ambiance food and service This is for large parties and not a first date This is for groups who love good food and adult beverages and exceptional service
Mixed seafood pasta amazing great food
Door greeter was rude he ignored me. The service was ok. I asked for a Manhattan perfect on the rocks. It was just whiskey. Overall food was amazing
Always a good idea to have dinner at Carmine’s
Big portions to share, the food is very good
Best restaurant in NYC!!!
Always great Italian home food at great value, excellent service.
A must if visiting NYC!
Had a great time the food was fantastic been their many times the price was great, 25 years as a customer!
Best food and service! The quality (and quantity) of food is unparalleled in the city!
It was great experiance but the food temperature should have been much higher, it was warm, not hot at all, perhaps the dishes sat at the counter too long.
Great food especially if u go with a bunch of people and share all kinda food def will be back!
Very crowded noisy. Go with crowd as portions are to be shared. Fun
The food was soooooo good. I live the family style dining and the sauces was amazing.
Fun place to go with a group. Food high carb, high fat , high salt and for a once in a while treat worth it all.
Homestyle service. When the huge platters of food come out and placed on the table, the thoughts are why did we order so much. Always wind up ordering just one more dish. Mangia !!!
This is a family style restaurant. One dish can easily serve 3-4 people so the price is definitely worth it.
Excellent food. Family sized portion can feed multiple people.
Great servers and service! Managers on staff were excellent
Ask for Patty as your server
excellent service. salad special excellent. Calamari very good and alot. Only waited a few minutes to get seated.
Love the food and the atmosphere. A little pricey but not out of line with other NYC restaurants. Love the Porterhouse! And everything else I've had there.
I love the food. You get a lot for your money. Our waitress screwed up and I did not get what I ordered. She offered to give me the right thing. It took a half hour to get it. We were already finished with the meal. I took it home but it’s not the same as fresh. Very disappointed. I had been looking forward to it all week. Anyway their good is great but it is very noisy and always very busy.
I took my granddaughter after a show. The service, food, ambiance and service was outstanding. It’s my go-to restaurant when I go to the City once a year. Bravo!!
Carmine’s was very good as usual, it’s perfect for a business meal that’s reasonably priced. We had a bottle of their own Barolo and while the wine was a little pricey, it was very good and enjoyed by all. I would recommend Carmine’s for dinner in the Times Square area, it does get busy so I recommend you make reservations well in advance.
We tried carmines after eating at toni di napolis and found that Toni"s is much better. Chicken scarp with no cherry peppers sausage or potatoes is not chicken scarp. Veal cutlet was tough not tender. Tomatoe sauce has parm in it which to me it shouldnt have in it. Meal was not bad but compared to other restaurants this is mediocre.
Right after being seated we were told that we would only have a certain amount of time at that table. But if we moved to another table we could potentially have more time. I made this reservation weeks in advance I didn’t need to be told that I had a time limit to eat.
Celebrating my 70th birthday
Awesome as usual. We were a little late for our reservation and that sat us right away
Our waitress today was AMAZING!!!!!! Very friendly and personable!!! I would go back just because of the service!!! Food was great too!!
Our entire family loves Carmine’s - and now all our friends. It’s the only ‘must’ restaurant on our NYC list when going with a group of people
Took our college age grand kids to lunch then the theatre, Carmine’s was perfect!! Service, setting, Italian family style shared plates. Fantastic!!!!
Family-style dining is THE way to go with a large group before or after a show! The atmosphere at Carmine's is quintessential NYC....robust and lively with lots of large groups enjoying themselves. The coctails were great and the food was plentiful and delish. Be wary of the amount of food you order if you are unable to take home leftovers!
Best Italian food I have ever tasted. Portions were huge, enough for 3 people. Garlic bread with cheese is worth the calories.
Absolutely wonderful!!!! Just make your reservations early and you will be set!!!
