    Food was good but a bit pricey but in Manhattan everything will cost you. Our waitress was a sweetheart and she helped us with selections on portion sizes. We took home enough leftovers (portions were big) to have for dinner that night. Would recommend.

    My cousin and I were visiting from Toronto. Our experience at Carmine’s was amazing! Our waiter was friendly and gave great recommendations. The atmosphere was energetic and fun, reminded me of being at a family gathering. We ordered a cesar salad, lasagna and tiramisu, all of which were delicious! So glad we dined here and will return once we’re back in NYC

    We had theatre tickets. Our reservation was for 6 pm. The fellow who checked us in outside was very friendly and personable. This is the second time that the staff at the host desk inside have been unfriendly and just short of rude. That needs to change. PLEASE. Bar staff are great. Servers are super helpful. No problem enjoying dinner and plenty of time to make our show Carmines is a traditional stop whenever we are in NY - 2-3 times a year Your hosts at the front need to be more hospitable.

    Nice bartender and drinks while waiting for my table to get ready. The food was great with very big servings, definitely a family sized dish meant to be shared. There were two of us and we still had leftovers to take home. Service was great and the fact they open late enough for a post broadway dinner is definitely a plus.

    First time at Carmine's, recommended by a coworker. Online reservation was so easy, had to reschedule and that too was a breeze. The place was packed and busy for dinner. Half of our party were running late, talked to the gentlemen at the door, told us we can wait and tell the reception when everyone's there. We weren't pressured at all that we missed our reserved time. Party was complete and accommodated us w/o problems. Food was delicious, explained to us it was family style/sharing. Total bill was so reasonable, I was surprised. Will be a regular at Carmine's from now on every time family and I are in New York.

    We arrived 10 minutes early and they were very busy. But we were seated at 12:30 which was our reservation time, so no complaints there. We ordered a Caesar salad and Cicken Parm. Both were excellent. Everything is served family style and a lot of it. ( there were only two of us). We were leaving after lunch for a show so we did not take leftovers. The server cut the chicken into smaller pieces and put it on our plates as well as portions of the pasta that it was on top of.

    I live in Ct. I have sisters in Newtown, Pa., in Philly, Pa., and in California. Every summer, we go to a play, and have lunch at Carmines prior to play. We've been doing this for as long as Carmines has been at this NYC location. We wouldn't do it if it were sub par. We feel that everything about Carmines lends itself to this kind of reunion. We will continue. Our lunch is very predictable: Chicken Parm on a bed of Angel Hair, Carmine's Salad, sometimes a side of meatballs, and always the Titanic for dessert. It makes for a great family picture, all of us surrounding the Titanic Great day!!

    Make your reservations as soon as you can as Carmine's gets busy every night. Definitely eat with family or friends as the family style plates encourage sharing and tasting of multiple dishes. Pasta dishes, veal parmigiana were all excellent. Great service and atmosphere.

    I thought the food was incredibly overpriced and certainly underwhelming. the description certainly misrepresents the restaurant and the quality of the food served. Overwhelming the customer with huge portions does not and will not mask the lack of quality of food presented.

    I used to love carmines. I've been going for years. Cocktails were good but I was really disappointed with the food this time. The chicken marsala was way to salty and the mushroom flavor wasn't there. The eggplant parm was awful. Dry and really bad taste. This is usually one of my favorite dishes... I didn't even bother with desert. Bread basket was good. For the price I won't be returning. Much better Italian food in little Italy.

    This experience was flat out embarrassing. I made reservations for after my sons graduation ceremony for 6 ppl with my family .We walked in asked for a big table. We walked in with my father in law who is a senior and frail. We just wanted to sit and eat and be served, we asked for big table to accommodate us since portions and plates are very big. They sat us one table then we asked for little bigger, they moved us but same size table. We asked if we can extend table or combine two tables bus boy was trying to extend the table thats when manager comes by, asking us to move AGAIN and that hosts sat us here as a mistake because he will have private event coming soon. staff didn’t communicate well amongst each other and dropped the ball but we had to pay the price. So now we are not being served food, being moved again but not to a bigger table . He kept saying if we can finish by 4:15 and our resy was at 3:15 pm How was this solution to solve any problems. The manager continued to talk and talk, with no intention to solve the problem. He needs to know first thing in customer service that You can’t be heard when you are not offering a solutions. You have to diffuse the problem . Offer a solution then you can be heard. He went on and on asking us first we need to move the table because a bigger party will be taking up that space. So we wanted to show our guest good time who honored us by coming to our sons graduation but instead we had to walk out, couldn’t listen to the guys explaining why we had to be moved but not offering table or service . We went to Tony’s Di Napoli and got faster service and felt appreciated.
