Excellent experience! Highly recommend.
Arrived at 9:15 with a 9:30 reservation for 4, was checked in promptly and told we could wait at the bar, it was very crowded and the bar was not a good option, I don’t like hovering behind people at a bar nor do I enjoy when others do it to me, so two of us found a quiet out of the servers way to stand and two opted to go outside, we wEre seated 30 minutes after arriving and were escorted to an upstairs table to a lovely table location in a spot a lot more quiet than the dining area downstairs. After a delicious bread and olive oil starter We shared a perfectly stuffed artichoke and the meatballs and spaghetti dish which was served family style, while some may think those were the most basic things we could order .... it was so well prepared and had excellent depth of flavor that it was an amazing experience for the palette.
Not impressed. Average pasta dishes with very high prices. Our waiter suggested a “half” portion for our kids. We asked to add mozzarella cheese to which they charged us $18 ($9 for a slab of melted cheese on each plate) Outrageous. Waiter didn’t care we were upset or why we questioned it. Disgusted with that and will never go back nor recommend. There are far better true Italian restaurants in the city to enjoy. Don’t waste your time.
Server was a bit abrupt. I was there with my young son and he made little effort with us. He made much more effort with an elderly coupon next to us that ordered alcoholic drinks. Tables are super tight- I don’t love people breathing on my food. Food was good.
Came in to NY from Boston for a holiday trip and brought friends visiting from GA. As expected, everything was great and our friends had a wonderful first experience!
Love this location for before and after Broadway shows
Great food, excellent service
Love the Holiday music and decorations
All plates big enough to share
We had a great dining experience at Carmine’s. Had a reservation at 10:00 pm arrived @ 9:50 and seated at 10 . The food and wine were both excellent!! Loved the atmosphere was very lively and very festive. Highly recommend to a friend. Carmine’s will always be in my dining plans when in New York.
As busy as it was be Christmas time, everything was spot on
Food was delicious!!!! Booked my parents a reservation for January 25th and bought them a gift card. Only concern was being charged for 2nd drink. We also didn't ask for refills on soda. Waiter took it to refill on his own. Then 4 soda's times 2 came to well over $30.
Part of our yearly tradition around the holidays! Always a great experience!
We had a great return experience. It’s important to know that walk ins are not excepted at this time of year. We made our December reservation in July! One of the the high points of our NYC weekend.
I made these reservations over six months ago and we were seated at a tiny table that barely fits fiur at the top of the stairs by the door that kept being open it was freezing my son was at the end of the step. Food was good but I will never go back for that
Awesome experience for my guests first visit to Carmine’s. We had a 1pm reservation and were seated promptly. The ambiance, service and food were all exceptional. This is a must go to if visiting NYC.
Delicious food. Shrimp parmigiana is yummy.
A must do in NYC
Men bathrooms tight and nasty, could use some upgrading
Server was great, drinks and food were very good. Had a great time.
The food was good but the place was busy which I believe affected the service level. I give it five stars because of the food
Always visit when I am in NYC. Our server Andre was wonderful!
What a place!!
Very noisy but atmospheric!
You need to be hungry- portions massive but very good quality of food.
Quick and efficient service.
Great position for theatres.
Would defo come again!
We had a wait a bit for a table but other than that it was good. Food is always delish
Awesome service! Outstanding food! Our annual Christmas trip to NYC! Carmine’s never disappoints! Staff is amazing, makes the experience so great and memorable!
Just a bit cramped with seating
One of my favorite places in Manhattan. Make reservations because it's always busy. Everything is family style so go hungry. We had Chricken Parm & the Friday chicken special. Food was fantastic!
Our waiter was outstanding. Food was outstanding. Thank you
Always a delicious meal here, love Carmine’s at the holidays!
Perfect ambience for time of year and the chicken romana was outstanding.
As Always,Food Was Awesome!!! We never visit NYC Without dining at Carmine’s!!!
Just over the top terrific! Had carbonara and meatballs, lovely drinks (big) SUPERB service, festive, fun, great introduction to NYC!!!
Fabulous food , very big family portions . Good price Lovely welcome , fast service
Wonderful atmosphere, AMAZING food and loved our waiter Larry!
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.
Carmine's is a great restaurant for large groups. The food is served family style and is delicious! Unfortunately the service we received was not amazing. We were served our appetizers before we had received water, let alone our drinks that we ordered. We ate most of our appetizers before finally flagging down a server to bring us some water. The food was all brought quickly, but service in between such as having drinks, olive oil or bread at the table were lacking.
Carmine’s never disappoints!!! Reservations should be made in advance versus walking into Carmine’s without a reservation. Food is delicious. Portions are large. Prices on high side but then again, it’s NYC!!!
Wonderful in every way
Had a Christmas lunch with friends- was seated very quickly at a great table!!! Jonas was very attentive. Food good as usual-
Most festive- o e if my favorite spots ever!!!!
Will return this week.
Always a great experience. Carmine’s never disappoints!
Everyone and everything was great especially the food there was a lot of it and it was delicious
Fantastic atmosphere and terrific portions. Best suited for parties of 3 or more due to size of portions. Food was very good also.
