    Been going here 20+ years, brought friends to experience my fav pre theatre restaurant. We were seated promptly. We ordered all of our appts salad and main course and drinks. We waited quite a while for our drinks , but they were delicious when we got them however we waited 1 1/2 hrs until our main course was served and it wasnt what we ordered, then when our ordered dish came, unfortunately we couldn’t eat it because we had a show to get to which we mentioned when we were first seated. Tables around us came after and left before us. We were the forgotten table. They did however take the main course off our bill, my guests were so disappointed that they couldn’t enjoy our dinner. We even had to wait for our appetizers. No one served us our food as they usually do. It was not what it usually is and we were actually late for our theater because of the delay. We figured for 2 hours.

    Just wasn't good. The portions are great, but the quality was lacking, the service even worse. Server made us feel uncomfortable, didn't share the specials with us, but did with other tables, didn't really check in too much with us, but not blaming them for the entire experience.

    The chicken parm was tasty and the angel hair with garlic and oil was nice and garlicky. Wasnt a fan of the meatballs- kind of just meat rolled into a ball with sauce- not seasoning. Server was wonderful, food can quickly, seated on time to our reservation- overall a nice meal and nice time!

    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!

    Fantastic vibrant restaurant with HUGE portions. Didn’t realise that all of the menu was a sharing menu which could have been problematic for a vegetarian and none vegetarian but the waiter soon sorted that for us. Can not recommend enough. The roast potatoes are divine

    We really loved Carmine’s, at first sight it may seems a little bit expensive but when you understand that you have to share, you can easily count 1 plate for 2.
