It is good food and meant to be a fun experience. The waiter was a bit rude. He was hesitant to split checks for our group and then said he could when I suggested he check with his manager. Also, when I asked for a kids menu and he replied that we didn’t need one since all the kids could share. The busboys were a little rude. Literally pushed into me to reach for plates without even saying “excuse me”.
Be prepared (we weren't; mea culpa) for family-style food, and massive portions. We ended up getting an appetizer and a main pasta dish, both of which were very good, and more than enough for four of us. Dessert was huge and yummy, but the cappuccino was undrinkable. The noise level was insanely high, mostly, I think, because every available inch of space not required for the wait staff (who were excellent) to move through was crammed full of people. All in all, an enjoyable experience, but maybe not enjoyable enough to repeat.
Great place to take kids before a play. Food was plentiful and delicious!!
Great dining experience. It's NYC pricing, but the food is excellent!
Food was very good. Family portions. Each main course should be shared with 2-3 people. We got a side of spinich and it should feed 4 easily. Restaurant is really only available for reservations. Make them a few days in advance. Service was good. Food was worth the cost.
The food was great, and it's so much food. We came for my father's birthday and he loved it. Couldn't ask for anything better.
The food and atmosphere was great!
Carmines is always a family favorite, great atmosphere and food.
We celebrated my moms 55th bday after seeing Phantom of the Opera and it was amazing! Service was excellent, food was delicious and we were seated right at our reservation time. It was a great experience.
Thoroughly enjoyable with a big party. Friendly, helpful waitress, food delicious, fun!
Love this restaurant, we visit every time we are in NYC! Great food, great service, great atmosphere!
The food was delicious! Love the family style platters!
Food was awesome...as usual...prompt, courteous service, and a relaxed atmosphere made it even more enjoyable!
This is NYC with great food, service and a very relaxed vibe. Early for you reservation - no problem. Early for the show to open - no problem. relax and enjoy it all. Andy in the font room is a fabulous waiter. Thanks Marciela - management rocks!!!
We have been to Carmine's several times, sit at the bar & have always had good food & an enjoyable experience. On 3/17/18, we made reservations at a table near the bar. We were disappointed that we couldn't have a sandwich for lunch. Our waiter recommended the veal saltimboca for us to share. Very disappointed in it for the price. The gravy was too heavy & the veal was very tough.
Great spot with good food, good service and great price. One serving serves 3 to 4 people quietly very filling.
As usual - great experience!
Carmine's was a great trip! I had been dying to go, but know with Family style it is a bit difficult in smaller numbers. We had a group of 8 and I am so glad we finally went. The chicken parm and penny vodka were amazing as well as the Carmine's salad and other appetizers. We also had someone in our group who was gluten free - the staff was helpful and accommodating and the gluten free options (pasta specifically) were just as delicious!
This place was incredible. The food was delish, the service was incredible and we had a great time!
Great place to eat with friends. Food is top notch.
Fun time for girls trip. So glad we came!! I was the only one that had been before but we all loved it!!
Our waitress Patty was exceptional. She knew we had theater tickets and got us out in plenty of time!
Good food served family style in a noisy environment. A good spot to visit with kids, but be ready to wait, even with reservations.
Carmines has the best food in large portions. My favorite is the Calamari and the garlic bread. Always a winner when dining at this establishment!
Always a good meal and great amount of food for a large family. Food always tasty and specials are on point!!
The place to be on Times Square. Loud as usual. I make Carmine's bolognese from his cookbook and mine is better. I spend more time with it. Still fun before seeing Hamilton.
Nice but busy. So many people in the restaurant
Carmine’s is perfect for family dining .the food quality is great with helpful friendly staff . Be careful , it is really easy to over order but leftovers are always good
Aunque la cocina es excelente las porciones de comida son demasiado grandes. Para dos personas una ensalada y una orden de spaghetti con albóndigas es mucho más que suficiente y sobra mucha comida.
Thought the food was great, but a tad pricey. I understood the family style approach, but it was hard for our group to select only one thing to order that everyone could agree on. That is the big thing that subtracted from my experience. Otherwise, it’s a great, friendly atmosphere and I would recommend it for groups as the portions are too big for a regular date.
Once again, Carmine's did not disappoint. Food was great, service better. Our waitress did not rush us. We enjoyed every course from the stuffed artichoke to the decadent chocolate torte.
A staple of the Times Square scene. Good food in huge, family-style portions. Best for parties of 4 or more but a hungry couple can manage!
Great place, portions are huge and worth every penny. Come hungry!
L’accueil très sympathique. Le restaurant est tout le temps plein. On a supposé que les plats devait être très bon.
Au final, Une nourriture excellente et surtout les plats sont extrêmement copieux.
1 plat pour 2 suffit largement.
Les desserts exquis.
Niveau qualité prix, très correct et très abordable
Je reviendrai les yeux fermés
Veal was tender. Clams delicious. Always crowded. Very good value
Daughter's. Sweet 16, 11 of us. Incredible food, family size meals. Fabulous service.
Awesome everything. Food is as good as ever
Seated immediately.The waiter explained the large portions and being we were only a party of 2 decided on a portion of escarole and shrimp parm Both were great and the service was outstanding
So glad I made a reservation! That being said our table is ready for us on time, Service was great and the best thing was they didn’t rush us out of there once we were done eating! Can’t wait to do it again
