We visit Carmine’s during every visit to NY. The service and the food are always great and as long as there are enough of us to eat the huge servings we get, life is good!!

Salad was Wilted with no crisp lettuce. Our chicken
Parm arrived just Warm And Not hot. A huge serving of bread pudding was really good but much too
Big for 2 people.
Hopefully they will one day have portions for 2 people because about half of ours was wasted because portions
Much too large for 2.
All in all A good experience but anyone going should
Have 4 persons.

We used to love Carmine’s, and went every year. This year, the service changed; it wasn’t as good. Lots of new faces; I’m assuming the senior wait staff left due to the pandemic. The food came out cold and the server no longer served you the entree onto your plate, like in the past. This could be due to the pandemic, so I have to give a pass there. But the server wasn’t as friendly. We had a 5:15pm reservation and didn’t get seated until 5:45. The bar area was so packed with people waiting for their tables, but the restaurant kept herding them in. We had a decent time, but not as great as years past.

Let me start with the food is great. We hadn’t been able to get a reservation here for years and were so excited to finally get one. Everything we ordered was delicious. However, the wait was way too long and the noise level very high. We were crammed in a corner so that the table had to be moved to get at one of the seats. All of these factors made it hard to enjoy the experience beyond eating delicious food. We were so hungry by the time the food came. Lastly, due to how busy the restaurant was, the service was lacking. No refills on drinks or bread. In the end, not worth going back again. While the food is worth the money, when spending that much, you want the whole experience. Not that you can’t wait to get out of there.

We had reservations but still had to wait too long before being seated. Once seated it took too long for server to come take our order and waited too long for food to come out. Servers were very nice though and apologized.

We had a great experience at Carmines on Sunday, December 5th. Our waiter really took good care of us. Answered all questions, had a calming, very pleasant personality and smile! The food was very good with large portions. The bloody mary was excellent as well. I would highly recommend Carmines....come hungry!

Wonderful dinner. First time visiting with my 9 year old daughter (her bday trip) and we loved the whole experience. Beautiful experience more for adults but made her feel very welcome and she loved it.

Have been here many times and food is typically wonderful, however this time it was not! Food came out all at same time. Asked for pasta to come out on side and didn’t-was with Shrimp Scampi. Chicken Marsala was barely warm! Came with sisters and mom-talked the restaurant up and everyone was disappointed! 😞

We love Carmines. We were a little disappointed this visit because the linguini was undercooked and we did have not the best waiter. But the lasagna and salad was wonderful and the meatballs were the best we’ve ever eaten.

Very loud and busy, great service but they served warm beer and cold meatballs. Sent beer back and waiter returned and told us there is no cold beer. Carmines salad, vodka sauce and chicken parm was all good.
