Lots of fun. Our server helped us choose our food and did not pressure us to over order.

Great location if you’re plan is to catch a bite before heading to a play, but make the reservation early because they sat us 30 minutes late. Hostess said guests were paid out but not leaving.

There was a weird vibe with our server who made it a point to show the other server he was training how much of a tip I left while still in my presence…found it a little unprofessional yet I tipped 20% my Son heard the server as well tell the other “You tell me” as he handed him the receipt I signed with added tip to look at, being from Miami I never experienced such a thing he was a decent server up until the end with this move…made me feel unsafe about my card having been in his possession. What we really wanted to order “Meatball and pasta” was not available. My first and last time dining here.

Had reservations, still 15-20 minute wait. Was brought the wrong food and the server tried to make us “taste” it anyway after waiting an hour for it. Actually never got over half of our order. This was out 5 th time there. Extremely disappointing.

Awesome experience and highly recommend! Went with my wife and our 12 year old son; we all had a wonderful time. Our waiter, Egbert, was friendly and knowledgeable, and I can't wait to go back next time we're in NYC.

Carmine's is a great place to go for celebrations, you will have a great time. The food is amazing and you are given a lot. The one thing I would recommend is that if you are tourist make sure you are coming with a big group because all their food is served family-style. This means the portions are about two-three times bigger than a single serving portion and you will be leaving with leftovers if you don't plan out who you are coming with.

A classic Family style Italian restaurant that is a must visit. This visit was for Sunday lunch before a Broadway show in New York City's theater district. Additionally, their house red wines of Montepulciano and Chianti are wonderful and a perfect compliment to the meal.

Before you go know they do not sell individual plates. Instead it is a potion enough to feed 2-4 people. Good food, but everyone wanted a different dish so we had to compromise on what we ordered. Super ridiculously busy. No 6 ft apart or distance for Covid. Waiting was really packed and we had reservations.

Pretty sure we were forgotten about when being seated as people who came in way after us were seated and when I asked the hostesses the shocked look on her face told me she forget about us. Then it took over an hour to get our food. I watched as people who ordered and got there food within 20 to 30 minutes while we were still waiting. The food was just okay for the price we paid. The waitress must have told the manager who did apologize and offered us dessert but we told him we had to leave he told us if we came back we could get it to which I feel like he should have just taken a little off our bill as we wouldn't be able to make it back and were are not from the area. I'm guessing these type of occurrences don't happen a lot here as it had good reviews, but this was my experience and could have been fixed by making right on our bill.

Definitely a place for families to eat!! all plates are served family style and in large quantities, so could be costly if small group wants their individual meals. Food, service and setting were great! Right by our theater and made for a fantastic evening! (make reservations!)
