They derive it family style and the portions are huge and when I say huge I mean huge. The meal was very good though and the service was good. We were here during the holidays so the inside was decorated very pretty. It’s a great place for a good meal and experience. I highly recommend making a reservation I booked on open table which I love and had no issues at all and the place was packed.

We have been to Carmines before the food is always good. The only problem was that this time there was a especially long wait even with a reservation. I can see a short wait, but 30 minutes is not acceptable.

We went for a pre-theater meal. The service was pretty good. Our waitress wasn’t the most attentive but when we flagged her down she would bring refills and other requests in a timely manner. We ordered one order of rigatoni with meatballs for the adults and chicken strips for the kids. The rigatoni platter was huge with six baseball sized meatballs. This was more than enough food for 4 adults. My kids shared the chicken strips which came with penne noodles. They did not like the chicken. I tried it and thought they were very good - just not what my kids expected and a little spicy for young kids. They were a pounded breaded breast sliced into strips. Not fried chicken fingers which they were expecting. We had leftovers at the end which we didn’t take with us which was good as you’re not allowed to bring food into the theater.

As usual, Carmines was great. Food, service and ambience were outstanding. Went after seeing the Christmas Spectacular with my family. Was very crowded and loud. But that's what makes it more fun. Portions are meant for sharing and are immense. You will love this place! Been there so many times and continue to come back because it's a fun place to go with great food. Try it and you will be sold.

Wish I had known everything came in a portion size to feed 4-5 people. I had dinner with my daughter and wanted a salad. I had to pay $26 for a salad that serves 4, even though it was only for me. And the entree, same thing. So we had to agree on what to irder and share it, and even that was too much food. We could take it home because we were going to the theater. So if you’re less than 4 people, don’t eat here!! That said, the food was excellent!

Get the chicken parmesan. I was with 5 teens, 3 adults. Even those who didn't like Chicken Parmesan loved it more than their own orders. The Spaghetti and Meatballs were a big hit too.
The Titanic dessert for the group was a lot of fun.

My favorite restaurant for get together with friends and family .I have been coming to Carmine's since 80's and will keep coming and recommending my favorite dishes ( Linguine with white clam sauce with super fresh super sized clams , awesome calamari, stuffed mushrooms,spinach salad, ...basically the entire menu).

I made my reservation on line . It was easy , hassle free and soo convenient . Lunch menu was a plus with almost half price on pasta dishes.
Highly recommended . Gotta try if you are in NYC!!!

It’s been a few years since our last visit and we were happy to discover the same great food and service. Would recommend Carmine’s as the perfect place for preshow meal for small and large groups. Lunch portions are perfect for smaller groups. Penne with vodka sauce remains our absolute favorite, it’s the still the best we’ve ever had and we’re from nj where Italian eateries are a dime a dozen. Looking forward to returning soon

The latest in a long line of semi-annual visits to Carmine's was, as always, a great success. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was excellent. Considering the amount of food that our party ordered, the price per person was incredibly reasonable. Looking forward to the next gathering at Carmine's in May.

Food was great. Our waiter was very professional and helpful. It was just the two of us we’d read the reviews and knew to expect BIG FOOD. And it was A LOT OF FOOD!! Take another couple with you unless you can take the leftovers home with you. We are from out of state and had to leave some behind. But it was worth the experience

Food is always fabulous with huge portions! Busy, upbeat atmosphere. Our 2nd time, both anniversary dinners. Were disappointed by the initial waitress who was abrasive when asked questions, and even spilled wine and beer on us without an apology. After complaining, she was replaced, and we were treated very well. We would go back again because the food is so amazing. We just hope they recognize the need to ensure serving staff have better customer service skills.
