Thank you for choosing Carmine's Midtown. We are located in the heart of Times Square on 44th Street between 7th & 8th Avenue. Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. With "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of home-style antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. 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!

We were not told about the $7.50 bottle of water. My friend ordered a drink, we were not asked if we wanted top shelf liquor. $16 for a small drink!

We had booked two tables for 6 people, one at 8:30 another at 9:00, since we were not sure when our pre-dinner event would finish, nor how many people would actually want to go out to eat. A few of us arrived a bit late for the second reservation (and we had called ahead to warn about being late for the first one) and although we waited a bit, they had a table for 12 people ready for us in within 15 minutes--even though they were packed (on a Friday night in the theatre district). One by one, the others arrived, until our tables were fully populated with hungry folks. In addition, two members of our large and straggling group were ability-challenged--one of them needing a place to put her walker while we ate. NOT a problem, despite the crowded scene, and in fact there was even an entrance with a ramp, so if you were to come in a wheelchair, it would be a cinch to get in and get seated. For all of that we were grateful. But THEN, the food started arriving, and what a delicious surprise! Fresh, well seasoned salad, chicken that melted in your mouth, al dente pasta with delicious sauce and veggies--we were all deeply impressed, and loved the "family-style," share all around portions. So much food came, that we feared we ordered too much--and yet, we seem to have finished it all! Only problem was the noise level, which seems hard to avoid in any restaurant these days, especially one as popular as Carmine's. While this place has been around a long time, its service and the quality of the food has not in any way gone "downhill." We were super happy we chose Carmines for our rather tardy group of poets and writers.

We had reservations for six o’clock before a show at the Schubert. The sign on the door said reservations only. After waiting for over 30 minutes for a table, then finding out the family of four eating next to our jammed in waiting spot had just “walked in and got lucky” , we finally got seated after some badgering of the hostess. Barely had time to eat dinner, had to skip dessert and run down the street to make the show on time. If your sign says reservations only, you should heed that. I would estimate there were well over 50 people waiting with us with no room to spare. I only hope all 50 didnt have the same 6pm reservation we had!

Food was great. Staff very friendly. But if you are going to a show allow plenty of time. We make a reservation at 6 and it was a little too close. Might be a little less crazy during the week. Definitely would go back but make an earlier reservation.

Started out a wonderful dinner and the food was amazing! Our waiter did not check back with us after taking our order and we waited for our check with empty drinks and would’ve loved dessert. Instead we missed out on celebrating my sisters birthday with dessert due to the lack of service from our waiter.

We were there 15 mins before our reservation and checked in immediately. Told to wait at bar and names were never called. 45 mins later checked ion table again and they had never even checked us in. Gave us a table immediately but then no server ever came to our table for another 20 mins. Food was great but very disappointed in reservation system and servers.

We could not even talk to each other due to the noise level.
One person in our party was gluten free but the waiter said all the dishes are meant to be shared. I did not want what my partner was getting so we ended up with two giant portions. The waiter mixed up our order so I had to wait as my husband was almost done his.
It would not hurry back. The only thing was portions were too large so quantity vs quality.
I would not ever go back!

The food is delicious but hard for two to eat because it is family style. The portions are huge and the cost reflective so it was difficult to order what you wanted unless you agreed on the same thing and would then share. Great for parties of 4 or more

Great food!!! Anthony our server was awesome!! Sad he had to leave - his shift was over!!!
One down side but didn’t really bother us- was getting our bread after our main meal arrived!!
One major let down - We tried walk in service, we were told we have nothing but you can sit at bar! however we made a reservation using open table app and were able to book a reservation for 30 minutes later!! I actually made the reservation while walking out!!

Placed a reservation upon recommendation of a friend. Was a perfect recommendation! Excellent place to take 2 teen boys with a big appetite. Arrived 20 minutes early for reservations and was seated immediately. Our server made excellent recommendations. The Red sangria was perfect. Food was excellent, and somehow had room for dessert. The Titanic was great, but the Strawberry Shortcake was the best that any of us has ever had. My boys are already making plans to go to Carmines on our next New York trip, and will try some new dishes.

Family restaurant, with BIG servings with fair price, very good food ! For the people that never went to Carmines this is my advice: share the plates ! Or check the tables next you to see the size of the servings, because its really very big!

It was a very busy night but we were seated promptly and the service was outstanding! Our waiter, Johnny, was quick to greet us and take our drinks and appetizer orders. The food is served family style and we had a pasta dish and chicken Parmesan, along with calamari appetizer. All items were served hot and prepared exactly as described by our waiter. If you like Tiramisu, we ordered that and the portion was so generous that even five people did not finish it completely. It was extremely well prepared and flavorful. I have dined here before with out-of-town business guests and have always found food and experience at Carmine’s to be wonderful. I highly recommend the restaurant to anybody and for any occasion. I also noticed a number of families with small children, and the restaurant was also good at taking care of them, as best as I could see.

Carmine's is a no-fail option for a pre/post theater meal. Just make sure you reserve a table ahead of time via opentable bc it gets packed. Family style Italian with something for everyone. The only challenge is that you need to get everyone in your party to agree on a dish or two bc each dish is designed for sharing. Enough for 3 hungry adults or 2 adults and 2 kids without second helpings.

My daughter and I had an early dinner before going to a broadway musical. It was a special occasion birthday gift for her 14th birthday. The salad and raviolis were amazing and the food portions could have fed 4 grown men. Loved the wine. Fun classic Italian atmosphere and great service. Worth the experience when in NY. Loved it.
