Very disappointing experience, we arrived at 11pm and checked in and they told us to wait at the bar. Which was completely ok since our reservations were at 11:30pm. However, it was 11:34pm and still waiting. We went to check on the status of our reservation and it appears they forgot about us. No apology from the host only from our waiter, he was nice and apologetic. I don’t plan on ever returning or recommending this restaurant.

Loved the family oriented atmosphere! Everyone was so welcoming. The portion sizes were great. My only disappointment was that I expected the mussels to taste like the ones I’m used to(butter and garlic), but everyone else at the table loved them.
The Little Louie lemonade was refreshing—a must have! Overall, a FANTASTIC experience!!!!
Big shout out to Sobee(not sure how to spell her name) for making my daughter’s birthday celebration an enjoyable one!!!

Family size entrees are fairly large!!
The most I've experienced at an Italian restaurant Wine selection is moderate but very expensive. 24dollars for small carafe for house wine. Service was excellent and food was very fresh.
To add grilled chicken to your meal small amount is $4.00 a pop!! Felt rushed by the server (not courteous)
Terrible choice of seating. There is no gift shoppe as other famous restaurants. But reservations are easy to make online a plus

The food was great the only thing that I did not like was you have to pay for garlic bread $15 it should be free on the table. It is a busy place and crowded. But overall would go again ! Chicken parmigiana GREAT

Convenient to the theater. Large portions so good for a big party. It was very busy when we were there and our server had our party plus another very large party next to us so that is why I rated service as average.

Great food, very large portions. Service wasn’t the best. Sat near the door so very cold and right near front of house desk so heard lots of conversations we probably didn’t need to hear whilst waiting for dinner. Our server very pre occupied by the table behind us and had very little time for us. Also bought a bottle of wine and were given very small water glasses for it, no wine glasses yet the table behind us were given wine glasses and there were plenty on the shelves at the side of us.

This place is pack with tourist from out of town, they serve you the food and they want you out right away for the next table sitting, the Chicken Scarpariello was dry and to salty. Not worth it.

We were very disappointed. We were not asked if we wanted a drink. The food was fair. Pasta dish was way overpriced. We happen to enjoy eating bread. It was put out without any butter or olive oil. The shrimp tasted like iodine. The chicken Parmesan was just OK. We had a lot of leftover and would’ve liked to be able to leave it at Carmine’s until after our show and then pick it up as other restaurants offer that service.

It was just the two of us. The salad was great, but was made for 3-4 people. The chicken parm. was not the best. Good for 2-3 people, but had no real taste.

Took 2 daughters and 3 grand daughters there after a broadway show. Grand daughters have severe food allergies, but they were able to make sure that the food they gave to them was safe for them. Excellent service Tons of food for great price.

The Caesar salad was wilted, and flimsy and so overpriced at $32. The other entree, chicken saltimbocca, had a very thick brown sauce that tasted like it came out of a can. Even the bread in the basket seemed old and chewy. Very disappointed with the food this time, and will find a new restaurant to lunch at for B'way shows.

We went to days in a row to eat at Carmine's. At the first day the service was amazing. However, at the second day, it looked like they wanted us out of there as fast as possible. I hadn't even fineshed eating and the waiter was already removing my plate. After that, he asked if we wanted desert. When we said no, we brought us the check without us asking. We still had wine to drink. He didn't even ask if we wanted something else, which by the way, we did. We wanted more wine. But after that terrible service, we just went back home

Loved Carmines. Food excellent and our waiter was fabulous. Only criticism is the miserable woman on the front door. She was rude and unwelcoming and nearly made us leave and go elsewhere. Our waiter was just fantastic and derserves high praise . Food superb
