    We got seated right away, no one came by at first but then waiter came by said hi dropped off menus and then someone dropped off bread no butter, waiter came took our order, got our drinks and we asked for butter, took awhile to get the butter, then it was hard right out the fridge. Can’t put that on the bread. Waiter asked was something wrong with the butter, we said it was hard, he said it comes that way. If the bread was hot or warm it could have worked but the bread was cold too.

    It took about 5-10mins to be seated even though we had reservations. It was also very tight since we were seated adjacent to the stairs. The waitress stated the food was going to take 30-40mins so we ordered apps and entrees at the same time. To our surprise the entrees came in about 15mins and but we weren't done with the apps yet. Limited table space so we had to rush and make room. Overall the apps and main entrees were superb but the meatballs were not good at all.

    The food was absolutely amazing! Great flavor, great bread, just so incredibly good! I know it’s family style I just wish there was an option for two people because the portions were so huge that it was a bummer to only get one dish. Would come back again with a bigger group though!

    Our second time coming to Carmine’s while visiting NYC and it did not disappoint. We had calamari for appetizer, delicious, even my picky kids loved it. For dinner we ordered the lasagna, broiled porterhouse steak and roasted potatoes (shared this between 4 adults and 2 kids). Everything was delicious!! Lasagna was creamy, steak cooked perfectly (we asked for medium well) and potatoes were crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Will definitely come again!

    Had dinner there our first night in NYC. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Please keep in mind that these are family size portions which means there is probably three or four servings of the meal on one plate. Overall, I am looking forward to returning for a different dish.

    Place was overbooked and waiting area by entrance was packed. Reservations honored - about 20 minutes late. Food very poor quality and preparation. Fried Calamari - over cooked and dry. Linguine with clam sauce - fair but clams were not the hard shell usually found in pasta and tasted spoiled and uneatable Veal scallopini cool and bland. Sause was unremarkable. Service - excellent. Good place for out-of-towners.

    Me and my family ate here before our flight back to Ireland after a stay in NYC. Best food we had the whole time. Very very busy so would recommend booking. Got seated and served very fast, portion was enough for 4 of us and great value. People say to steer clear of any restaurants in/near Times Square but this is an exception. Would highly recommend :)

    We had the stuffed clams for an appetizer. The clams unfortunately were like rubber. We couldn’t even chew them. Chicken parm and penne ala vodka were very good! Our server unfortunately was not friendly at all. It was my son’s 17th birthday and I noted this on my reservation. He never mentioned anything and I didn’t remind him because of his attitude and lack of interest in our presence. Maybe he had a bad day, I don’t know, but servers can make or break your experience! I will be taking my son elsewhere for a make up b day dinner!!

    We were a party of seven after broadway show. Place was mobbed and chaotic, but we were seated at our reservation time. Ceaser salad was good. Stuffed artichokes were tough, inedible and filled with breadcrumbs and a creamy cheese filling that didn’t belong in an artichoke. No hearts in the artichokes. What? After trying to wrestle with them, we gave up and left them on the table. Capellini pomodoro was tasteless. Needed a lot of cheese. Broiled porterhouse was cooked to our specifications, but it was tough, salty and loaded with garlic. Couldn’t get rid of the aftertaste. Chicken scarpariello also very salty, with too much garlic and too little lemon. Service was spotty. Food came out quickly but had a tough time getting butter for the table.We were so thirsty after all the salt and garlic, but couldn’t get anyone’s attention for water until the waiter brought the check. Cheesecake was creamy, but not rich and flavorful. Ordered it at check in for a birthday. Waiter asked if we’d like coffee with our dessert, but the cheesecake arrived with another server and no one came back to take our coffee order. This place is loud, crazy busy and mediocre. Portions are plentiful, but none of the food is very good. Wouldn’t return.

    Food was good to taste but I was less impressed with how oily the dish was that we ordered. Just really felt that that type of establishment would decrease their food before plating it and serving. Otherwise, the portions were plentiful.
