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!

    Good food, served family style. Very busy place, knowledgeable server. Checked in with us a few times, but was obviously very busy with a lot of tables. Good bread basket with focaccia bread. They have several allergy menus, if you have members of your party that need them, for example Dairy/Egg allergy menu

    We were celebrating our daughter’s 16th birthday she loves pasta so we picked Carmines since we were in NY and it did not disappoint it was our first time and the portion sizes are very big enough to feed at 3 adults. It was 5 of us and we a lot of food left to take home. We live in MD so we look forward to trying the Carmine’s in DC b/c NY aced it!!

    The food was great. Garlic bread and caesar salad were delicious. Both pasta dishes and escarole were great. The problem was the service. Our reservation was at 10pm and were seated upstairs which was almost empty at that time. Our main server was very friendly but we were definitely rushed. The gentleman clearing the table was very impatient and stood in the corner staring at us waiting for us to finish. The staff was in close out mode cursing and cleaning upstairs. If you do not want to provide service at 10pm, do not offer reservations at 10pm. On our way out, downstairs was still very lively. We should have never been seated upstairs so late if the service was going to suffer.

    Still waiting for waiter to take check after 30 minutes. Service was disappointing. Forgot two of our entrees. No apology from anyone. Waiter said we should not be upset. The entrees we got were outstanding but do not make up for poor service. Would not recommend to anyone. Group of seven and 5 of the people had never been to NYC. Thanks Carmines for not caring. Still waiting to pay bill now 40 minutes.

    The food was amazing - Being able to make a reservation within 2 hours for 10 people on a GORGEOUS Sunday afternoon in midtown was amazing! The food was extraordinary. EVERYONE LOVED EVERYTHING.... Our waiter Andre was wonderful and very careful about our gluten allergies at the table. Drinks were great, food was WONDERFUL (as usual) and PLENTIFUL. The waiter even encouraged us to order 1 less entree because he thought there would be too much food - And, there was. We all loved our time together and sitting at a round table was icing on the cake. Thank you CARMINES for NEVER DISAPPOINTING. Several people in our party had thier first visit to Carmines on this

    Carmine's is the real deal, a really great Italian restaurant with great Italian food! Everyone's nice, efficient, helpful, doing a terrific job, and they all care about your dining experience. But the food here is the star. The pastas are delicious masterpieces - you can't go wrong with any choice - the focaccia bread is heavenly scrumptious, the desserts are delectable delights... HIGHLY RECOMMEND on your visit to NYC!

    The food is really good, bu the plates are big. You have to be at least 4 people at the table to share it. It's perfect for a family dinner. The service is really fast and friendly. You have a lot for your money. We will go back for sure.
