Just over the top terrific! Had carbonara and meatballs, lovely drinks (big) SUPERB service, festive, fun, great introduction to NYC!!!
Had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation in a very cramped loud waiting area. Once we were finally sat we had amazing service and amazing food. It was worth the wait.
Wonderful! Fantastic! Delish! Amazing!
Food and atmosphere was amazing!
Had a salad from the specials menu and Meatballs with Angel Hair pasta. Food was delicious! Portions are huge.
Husband and wife date from Tulsa Ok.
Beautifully decorated, awesome food, drinks are overpriced, waiter was just ok, forgot about us but paying more attention to the larger tables. Super crowded & super noisy. Disappointed that you can’t request a specific table even months in advance. Even when you tell the host you’re willing to wait they yes you to death & sit you anywhere they want anyway. Might return but not in December.
Larry CHARLES was our awesome waiter...thank you!
The server was excellent!!
Bread basket - most was stale. Dissappointing. The entree and salad was good. Coffee bitter yesterday. Had a reservation yet was asked to wait about 10 minutes in the bar (11:30 am reservation so not sure why).
Easy to be near to the theaters and stay open until late.
But the food is okay and the service is terrible.
Ambience is beautiful but the service is really poor unless you’re in a giant party. Expect to get nothing and ask every server.
Great old family style restaurant. Our waitress was attentive, kind and extremely nice. Food was excellent and we all shared!!!
We loved the Carmine’s experience! We just wish we had more than the 2 of us in our group as we wasted a lot of food. Since we were going to a show afterwards, plus we didn’t have a fridge in our hotel room we were not able to take our leftovers with us!
HUGE portions of each and every item and no small alternatives. Only good for gluttons or groups. Service was pleasant but very slow. It took 15 minutes to get the check. Food very good. Loved the clam sauce and liked the broccoli but it was enough for 4 people
We have loved coming to two of the Carmine's ... both in NYC. The last 5 years the service and food has deteriorated and the restaurants are tourist traps. This past time is our last. We won't be back. There are too many other great restaurants in NY to patronize. We'll just save the memory of the Carmine's that we loved during the last two decades.
Overall the food was really good. It is family style so the portion served feeds approximately 4 people. So dining for 2 will leave a huge leftover. The only downside is the place is overly packed. At some point while waiting it felt like there could be a fire hazard.
Ordered 4 entrees for 4 people....Rookie mistake and so glad I did. We had leftovers for the week. The food was flavorful and the service was good as well.
Great food, great prices and atmosphere. Only down was it was slightly chilly upstairs but otherwise a very nice meal out
After not dining there for over ten years, it was consistently a fun and enjoyable dining experience with a festive holiday atmosphere.
Delicious food, wonderful service and beautiful ambiance
Love the atmosphere in Carmine's.....the food was AMAZING, the decor at Christmas to die for! The service on this trip was mediocre at best. Our waiter never offered drinks to our daughters...not even water. He never smiled, never checked on the table, and was not an example of our former visits. Unfortunately, service can kill the overall experience and it probably has for my 14 year old girls.
Una excelente y hermosa cena con mi marido en nuestra luna de miel. Ambiente agradable, comida riquísima y abundante, muy buena atención!
Crowded beyond belief!
Cena excelente!!!! Spaguettis con meatballs, la especialidad de la casa y riquísimos! Antes de irnos de NYC, volveremos a ir.
Excellent food. Meant to share. Pasta dishes and sides a little overpriced but the food will not disappoint. Highly recommend.
Everything was great except for the cramped space.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner after our matinee show on Sunday , Dec 1st. The food was plentiful and meant to be shared! We loved every part of the experience even though it was very crowded and rather loud! Very festive with beautiful Christmas decor..Restaurants are a must!
Enjoyed our meal at Carmine's after seeing the Christmas Show at Radio City. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious! Immensely enjoyed everything! Had a tossed salad, Spaghetti and Meatballs( they are out of this world!) and Chicken Parm! Serving size was plentiful!
If you’ve never been to Carmine’s, you should go once to try it out. I personally think that it’s over-hyped. Everything is average for me and definitely over priced. It was so noisy that I was having hard time talking to our waiter, seats were very tight, not comfortable at all.
From stepping through the door I could tell we were going to enjoy it. Yes it was noisy but in an enjoyable way. It was explained that the portions were family sized so we ordered a prawn linguine. My goodness the prawns were huge and the dish itself was delicious. I tried cannoli for the first time and again it was delicious.
I actually liked the fact they noticed on our booking that it was my husbands birthday and wished him a happy birthday as soon as we were seated , and then lit candles in our dessert and sang. Nice touch.
Next time we are New York we definitely visit again.
Dining area is a little crowded due to the tables being pushed closely together, but service and food is phenomenal. Great place!
The staff was very accommodating and nice. Loved the atmosphere! Perfect spot for a group, especially if you are going to see a show. Highly recommend!
Great spot close to everything. Friendly staff. Fast service. Gigantic plates as we are talking family stile. Since we were just 3 it was overwhelming. Bigger group more enjoyable.
We had 6 for a dinner and it was the best meal ever!!!! Staff was fantastic , the food just kept coming and coming and the quality was great. Can't wait to go back !!!
Food was great! Beautiful place to share with your friends or family a delicious dinner!!!
Fantastische ervaring. 2x geweest. Eerste keer zomer 2019 met gezin heerlijk gegeten, porties zijn enorm groot. In november geborreld met vriendin na avond musical. Leuke plek aan de bar, goede bediening. Super sfeer. Je moet wel reserveren!
Everything was great. Long waiting time to be seated. Can’t get everything.
