Thank you for choosing Carmine's Midtown. We are located in the heart of Times Square on 44th Street between 7th & 8th Avenue. Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. With "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of home-style antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!

Too much food. 2 people should be able to have portions for 2, not 4. I don’t get this.

Surpris par l’impossibilité de commander des plats individuels.
Seuls des plats pour 3-4 personnes sont proposés.
On a pu prendre à emporter les restes. Mais bon..
Bonne cuisine, on a bien mangé. Un peu gras...

Food was amazing and the servers were so nice! We were there closer to closing because we just got out of a show and so it wasn’t loud and it was a very chill vibe. The cheesecake blew me away. Our party of four shared a salad, pasta and dessert and left stuffed with leftovers!

Very good, portions are insanely large, I wish there was a small option for two diners, it makes ordering more than one item wasteful. Food and service was great though!

Unfortunately I had to wait a long time to be seated and finally I went back to the hostess to understand what the problem was and she finally sat us. The server was dressed very sloppy and he was not friendly. He actually tried to talk us out of things we ordered. Asked for a drink and he never brough it. Then he made a mistake with my debit card. I’ve had great experiences but I brought a friend for the first time and it’s sad that was her experience of my favorite restaurant

Although I had an outstanding time with exceptional service and good food that would have been great had it come out hot and not barely warm. Our waiter was exceptional in that he was pleasant and did not push us to over order or hurry. But my pet peeve is food that does not come out hot. But it was still very tasty and more than enough to share. But I would not recommend the tiramisu. It was basically a big bowl of whipped cream (that must have had a stabilizer like gelatin added) with chocolate shavings and a couple of ladyfingers on the bottom. Skip dessert and go for an appetizer.

We had requested a special table in the back for our anniversary but were told when we got there that the back was reserved for people with limited time. Where we ended up was so loud we couldn’t even talk.

While the food was very good, the place was overloaded at 4:45 pm, diners trying to get through before the plays start. We waited 20 minutes to be seated, then after an appetizer, waited an hour or more before entrees appeared, and then only when we finally found our waiter and asked. He made up some story about the kitchen being too busy, however all the people around us, who arrived after we did, were served promptly. They must have lost the order in the kitchen. Very noisy, closely spaced tables. Best to not go here under any time pressure especially in a peak period.

Fantastic food and great establishment but impossible to order the right amount of food for two people! We left with a giant takeaway bag and had to toss it because we were going to a show!

The food is totally average at best, really don’t understand the hype. Tasted like something you would get at a cheap bar.
Not worth paying for. Waiter forgot our drinks too.
