Carmine's - 44th Street - NYC
Book your next event with us
Los platos muy abundantes , el problema es que por meter más gente las mesas están una encima de otra
Food was good, Menu and ordering took a bit because everything is family size. Never experienced anything like it before but we liked it. Just hard to decided on a dish
Finally got to Carmine's. Food was delicious and the ambiance was very festive. Excellent value, the dishes might seem pricey but they are HUGE! Loved the artichoke appetizer and the Chicken Parmesan. If you go with a group, you can sample a few dishes family style. If not, you will almost certainly have delicious leftovers. Try it next time you're in Time Square for a Broadway show.
Always great food! Favorite restaurant in NYC
Family style - with huge amounts of food. We ordered the plate with the 4 types of pasta. It was delicious, but way too much for 2 people. I visited with my daugher who is a vegitarian, so didnt try the meat menue items. I definitely would go back - with about 5 or 6 people.
Everything was perfect! Thank you.
Fabulous food and fabulous service. Make sure you come hungry!
Wonderful food & great atmosphere! Perfect for lunch right before a show!
We were seated less than 10 minutes upon entering.. the food and service was everything.. whole process the portions are family sized to each dish can easily serve four adults with the potential for leftovers.. definitely a nice treat after taking in some NYC sights!!
must have when your in nYC. make a reservation for sure highly recommended
Amazing food and service!!
I would recommed Carmine’s but not this location.
Extremely noisy - had to wait even though my reservation was made a few months out.
I had 6pm reservation and waited 2 hours and never got seated. They kept saying “a couple more minutes”. They said this to the 5:30pm and 4:30pm reservatiins too. They were dishonest with wait times. I had guests i. From out of town and we had to go somewhere else. Its hard getting a last minute reservation for 7 people on a Saturday night.
The kicker is that Carmines told you guys that we ate there as i got an email saying “thanks for dining at Carmines”
Over hour and half wait despite reservations. Seated our large party in the aisle in small tables that would not accommodate the food trays. Waitstaff either overstretched or under-attentive they don’t tell you pricing on daily specials- do NOT assume they are even close to regular menu. Try $120/plate. Food fairly good. Not a place I’d take small chick den , claustrophobic people,or people who are unable to stand and wait for over an hour. .
Great food. Family style is great, allowing everyone to try different foods.
Very disappointed in the 45-minute wait WITH reservations, which were made months ago. Once we were seated, the service and food were great.
Horrible. I’ve never waited for an hour and a half PAST my reservation time anywhere else. Our reservation was for 5:30. After much complaining and questioning and receiving curt, dismissive answers (and watching those with later reservations being sat before us because they knew the host), we were seated at 7pm. My parents didn’t get to eat because they would have missed their show so we packed our food to go. I will never go back there again. Which is sad because I’ve been going there for 15 years. Absolutely atrocious all around.
Absolutely terrible service, poor management. Had reservations and we’re made to wait 45 minutes standing long bar. Then the staff gave another party who came after us first with a later reservation and same size party.
Then- finally we’re sat and waited another 15 minutes for the waiter to bring water and menus. Food was good when it came out.... one entre at a time with 5 minutes between them!
Ordered dessert and coffee, same story dessert came 15 minutes before coffee. I left the table to search for the waiter and told him he had a show to see and needed the check and skip the coffee. Coffee came 5 min later - no check! Had to go look again to find him for the check.
Management never came over once to check on anything, service was terrible, and would not recommend. The food was “ok” but not great Italian food. Dressed up chain restaurant with service you’d expect at a 1 star restaurant.
Don’t buy into the hype of the name, this place has isn’t anything great - more likely will end up ruining you night out.
I gave one star for service and overall and three for the others because I only got to see the lobby. In fairness to Carmine's I gave the other categories three stars because that's right in the middle and I don't know if the food was excellent or poor, so I split the difference. Had a 5:30 reservation, checked in well early (5:05) and that was that. I checked back at 5:45 and was told "we have a few tables paying now so it will be shortly". Checked back again at 6:15 and was given the same answer....10 mins later still nothing so we left at 6:25.
The fact that nobody seemed really to care about the 5:30 reservation was maddening. That and the way they kept cramming people into the front lobby with no room was insane. If you can't even seat your 5:30 people why are you letting the 6:00 people in the door?
I have waited tables and bartended for years and I try my best to never leave a bad review being that I have been in their shoes, but the attitude of the hosts and hostesses was outrageously poor. With literally a ton of places to go eat in NYC I will pick them all over Carmine's.
I'm sure they're not going to miss by business as there was a nonstop stream of people rolling in, but I'll spend my money elsewhere.
45 minute wait even with reservation made 6 months ahead of time. Liked the round table but were squished into a corner. Food was cold. Salad delicious. Wine terrific. Man at door with IPad worse than rude.
Had a great time with my wife on a date night!
We had 3:30 reservations and had a change in shift and got a new server who never came over to table and we were in the middle of dinner. His name was Alejandro and we finally had to get up and get a manager to order a dessert for the 50th birthday we were celebrating. When dessert came we had no plates or silverware.. Alejandro came back a tossed the plates on the table only 8 not enough for out party. We then had to get up again as he walked away before we could get his attention to get another plate or spoons. Again we waited and needed to finally see the manager to get our bill. We have been to Carmine’s on other occasions and never have been treated so badly...
Excellent service, food and value!
It was my families first time there and they loved it! It really set the tone for our NYC weekend. Our waiter was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.
Parking was a problem , across street at entrance of parking garage was full ,no sign no other lot to get parking validated by Carmine’s, other then parking Costing me 32 the food and service was excellent .
service was expedient food OUTSTANDING!Carmines is always top notch in all area's
Third time here. Always love the service and the food!
My daughter’s birthday lunch was fantastic! Chicken parmigiana was delicious! Dylan and crew paid particular attention to our guest’s diet restrictions. We didn’t have room for dessert but Dylan and crew still managed to sing her happy birthday and brought her ice cream with a birthday candle. It was a pleasant surprise! Thanks Carmine’s, that’s why we love coming back because you never fail to impress!
Best for a group
While they were able to accommodate our early arrival, almost as soon as the restaurant opened, we found the following:
1. knives were either very old or the dishwasher left horrible water/soap stains. Waitress did swap them out
2. bread was delivered but no butter or olive oil placed on the table. Waitress did provide once we asked for them
3. drinks were delivered, no straws provided or offered. We asked for one Bloody Mary and it was delivered without a celery stick, normally provided
4. Ordered chicken Saltimbocca, sauce was too sweet and it appeared that the dish was pre-staged as the mozzarella was just melted and the prosciutto underneath had an overdone look to it.
5. Waitress was not attentive at all
6. seats are TOO together and background music too loud which did not provide for an overall pleasant experience.
7. Bathrooms on second floor
Excellent food and service. We had a group of 10, and we're out in just over an hour, including desert. Would definitely recommend
Food and service were spectacular. Reservations are a must!
Awesome as always. Great waiters and the food was terrific.
The food was not so good like the first time I came.. But I still like it. Great ambient
We always enjoy going to Carmine's! Food and service outstanding! We always meet great people from all over the world when we go there :)
The people, ambiance and food was fab. Go visit Carmines!
I did the reserve but I need wait stand for the 40 min and the hall was a crowed.
I don’t like for this
The food was excelence
The food was delicious and the waiter was wonderful. The restaurant was super crowded and not much room for standing when you have to wait. Otherwise it was awesome 😎
Wonderful food, environment, and assistance. We had a reservation but actually ended up eating at the bar. Our bartender was fantastic and gave excellent recommendations. Keep in mind this is family portion Italian dining. There was SO much food. I hated to see any food go to waste because of the quality. They also had a good wine selection. We came in from Nashville, TN for a quick weekend getaway. I’m definitely coming back to this place.
Delicious food. Wait was longer than expected for a reservation, but worth the wait.
