Carmines is always amazing. We had the salmon special which was probably the best I’ve ever had, anywhere. And our server Eduardo was a joy. We wanted him to sit down with us!!!

I have been to this location a few times. I always have a good experience. This time I was pretty astounded that in NYC where they require you to show your vaccine card everywhere - that our server was not wearing his mask. It was uncomfortable and from my experience with asking someone to put a mask on - it can get very confrontational. This is supposed to be a standard in NYC. Management should be looking and not have me or another guest say something.

Excellent food, great atmosphere and large portions. Staff is extremely attentive and professional. I highly recommend this place if you are in town and a must do before a Broadway show. Make reservations ahead of time for a quick sitting !!!

Really fantastic evening. Kiesha provided outstanding recommendations. Be warned everything is family style so it’s way more food than even two people can eat. And save room for the chocolate bread pudding it’s amazing. If you can ask for Kiesha do it. We’d come back just to hang out with her.

We were told good things about Carmine's from friends who visited New York. It did not disappointment us. The food was incredible on our visit. We were disappointed the cheesecake was not available but the bread pudding was a great substitute. Overall we had a wonderful experience.

Had a good meal the pasta was really good. The chicken was ok n the bread was dumb cold. For a Covid experience it was hella packed so our waiter was extra busy and didn’t have much time to tend to us. But overall my friends and I enjoyed our dining. Would recommend just go when they not busy.

I have been to Carmines at least 20 times. Usually it’s great … this past time was horrible. Tbh if this was my first time there I would never go back. The staff was so rude and unhelpful. We ordered A carmines salad . There were no peppers or olives at all and the lettuce was soggy. The Rigatoni and meatballs was so mushy and overcooked it was like paste. Horrible experiences and completely disappointed.

We normally live this place because it’s great food and family style. Fir two people it’s a lot of food so it’s more limiting. The chicken parmigiana was disappointing because it was chewy and then the cannolis we’re not filled properly.

Penne a la vodka was too salty to eat. It was as if they spilled the salt in there. Unfortunate and too busy to send back.

Food was outstandingly great but service was a bit inattentive. Was surprised that the waiter said they could not sub the marinara sauce on the chicken parm with vodka sauce telling us they didn't have vodka sauce, even though we were willing to pay an upcharge and they have vodka rigitonis on the menu... go figure. Otherwise, it was still a nice experience.

Be prepared for crazy large portions. Not suggested for groups smaller than 4. The food was good. But we ordered baked clams and got clams on the half shell. By the time the correct clams came we were halfway though our meal. The meal was good though. They packaged leftovers in a catering tin. The Tiramisu was a 9in pie. The server got our drinks wrong as well. The service was pretty bad, the family style is something that needs to be planned for. The bread is cold and they will not warm it if asked. Overall, I would not eat there again.

We absolutely enjoyed every bit of Carmines. Made our reservation on Open Table a week before our trip. Arrived at our reservation time and were seated immediately (on a Saturday). Food was delicious. The Porterhouse steak was cooked perfectly and the flavor was amazing. Highly recommend!

The experience was good for a one-time NYC experience. It was incredibly crowded and we had to stand in the packed lobby 15 minutes after my reservation time. The service was good and everyone was attentive. Even though it is family style, there should be a 2-person option to avoid food waste and lower costs for a couple going out to eat.
