Book your next event with us
Great food, great service!
Es muy comercial
Our reservation was for 6:00 PM. We did not get seated until after 6:30.
Food always good. Calamari cooked well, tender and not chewy. Pasta flavorful and slightly al dente. Good Friday thus very very busy and service was slow and sparse but staff was very sweet and apologetic. Understandable but worth noting on a holiday weekend.
Had a 6:00 reservation. Seated within a few minutes, unfortunately next to a large family with several very loud very wild children! Our server took our orders promptly and our salad came out within a few minutes. However- we waited over an hour for our entree and needed to leave to make our theatre show. Finally found a manager and she was very helpful and apologetic. Ended up getting our meal for free so that was great but it definitely did not live up to the hype
Delish... food was so good. Huge portions! Will be back next time I’m in the city!
Great food. Huge servings make sure to only order one item. Enough for 2-3 people. Definitely make reservations if possible or wait will be long. Service was great, will definitely be back
Muy buena los platos son abundantes y exquisitos
Food was good, service was average
Services were great!!! we ordered dht garden green, which is just ok but the Pasta with calms was the best!!! One of the BEST I must say. it was fresh and tasty. one plate feeds 3 - 4 ppl but two of us ate the whole thing. So delicious and the flavor stuck in my head for two days. LOL. will be back here again soon.
1st time family trip to NYC! Carmine’s and WICKED!
Make sure to bring the whole family; great food, huge portions 😋
Phenomenal. Best Italian food I’ve had. Second visit. A must do. Family style. Large portions. Melt in your mouth.
Twenty years ago it was one of my favorite restaurants. Times have changed. They couldn’t possibly cram anymore people into the dinning area. People are on top of each other. The noise level is a 10 out of 10. Our table was so small that when our entree arrived, they had to take our half eaten salads. We had already moved our bread to the side of the table. The server let us sit for over half our meal with empty glasses. I mentioned it to two other employees with no avail. I also had to get up and find olive oil for the bread. We had asked for it 10 minutes earlier.
Our server Brandon took his hair out of his man bun, adjusted his hair and pulled it back into a bun. He then served customers without washing his hands. The bathroom upstairs was disgusting. But to be fair, the bathroom has always been disgusting.
On a positive note, their Caesar salad is still my favorite. The chicken parmesan was good. The pasta and sauce was below average. The sauce was watery.
Carmine’s was a pleasant stop for dinner before a play. It was close to the theater, the ambiance was electric and the food quality and price were great!
Everything was great. The service was outstanding. Will be back for sure
Always come back!
Always have excellent service!
The portions are way too large!
Fabulous meal, great atmosphere and attentive staff. I don’t come to New York very often at all, but I always book Carmine’s when I do
Great place to meet with friends and family and to have a terrific meal. Every time I come to New York City, I make it my business to come there. Way to go Carmines!!!
Always a great experience. Can't beat it for a large group.
We usually enjoy our dinners at Carmine's. Unfortunately, our dinner and experience with the wait staff on Wednesday, April 17, was very different. We arrived and was seated immediately. The first waiter we had came over to us and took our drink order. He explained they would be changing shifts and we would be getting a new waiter which was fine. The new waiter came on and immediately started talking with the people sitting next to us. It was a very personal conversation about their backgrounds, had they gone back to the country their parents came from, etc. It would have been fine except the conversation lasted at least 15 minutes.
Both our appetizers and dinners were cold. Some of the meat in the ragu was not eatable. We didn't complain, we finished, had coffee and dessert, paid our bill and left.
Neither my husband nor I said anything about the service or food that night but the next day we both said we were very disappointed. We always look forward to dinner at Carmine's but not this time.
Location for pre-play lunch was great. Our server was outstanding. Will be back!
My favorite restaurant!!! Would eat here everyday if I could!!! Will be back soon!!!
Our first night in NY with our kids and loved the experience!
We visited as tourists, but found it to be very popular with locals. Huge portions but still cooked perfectly. We arrived early for our reservation but they found us a table quickly despite how busy it was. Very fun experience!
Lots of diners
Rather slow service
It was my first time there and I loved everything about Carmine’s. The food was excellent and their drinks delicious The wait wasn’t long, just reserve a table. I will be going back
Fabulous meal with my family - portions are
good to share by any standards and super tasty. Also they do kids portions of any dishes. Great service and the bartenders are skilled in mixing drinks to your preference. Awesome service too!
Birthday - excellent food but the portions really are huge 😊
We waited for a long time in a super crowded area even with reservations. The service was good once we were seated. Meatballs were good. However, red sauce was not good..it had no flavor. We were visiting NYC and someone told us that Carmine’s was a must-do. I don’t agree. The Italian food didn’t taste as good as some of the local spots we have in Louisiana (which is not known for Italian). Maybe all of the hype is due to the family style service?
Great experience with an unbelievable amount of food!
We arrived early for reservations but they seated us immediately. Waiter was very helpful in explaining menu and offering suggestions. Overall a great experience.
Exceeded our expectations
Our waiter Peter was simply OUTSTANDING
My Daughter Laura and I loved it
Highly recommend to all I know
The food and service was great. Our waiter Sergio was on point. It was my BFF B-Day and her 1st time at Carmines. She was very happy.
The ambiance was great and the service was fantastic. The servers were attentive and friendly and the food came out quickly. The food I say was average. We had chicken parm and ravioli. They were both somewhat bland.
