Our reservation was at 1:00pm, and they called us right at 1:00. Our table was near the door, which I didn’t like at first, but it really wasn’t a problem. The food was outstanding as usual.

Over the past 20 year’s, I have always enjoyed my periodic visits to Carmine’s. I especially enjoy the Shrimp Parm and the Tiramisu.

We have dined at Carmine's several times. Never was the wait as long as it was this time ... on a Wednesday!! Even with reservations, we had to wait 55 minutes! At the end, when they packaged up our food, they did a lousy job and our leftovers spilled everywhere! Each and every other time the leftovers made it all the way home and we were able to enjoy an extra meal! So I was a little disappointed this time with that. Food itself was excellent.

Food was excellent! I was not seated until a half hour after I checked in with a reservation . Service was fair. Waitress was difficult to flag down once our meal was served. It was packed and standing room only. I would refrain from going again during the holiday season.

We arrived for our 12 noon pre-theater matinee luncheon 10 minutes early and checked in with the host. We were herded over to the bar area to wait with many other people all who had reservations. We were told to wait until our names were called. Other people were seated while we remained standing. I walked to the host station to ask how much longer we would have to wait and was brusquely told we’d be called when our table was ready. We waited another 10 minutes and when parties of six who arrived much later than we did were seated I again went to the host station only to find out that we weren’t officially recorded as having checked in. We were finally seated at 12:35. Since we needed to leave for the theater at 1:45 this did not leave much time to enjoy our lunch. Carmine’s serves family style large plates for sharing. We ordered a salad, a pasta and a meat dish. The salad was promptly delivered to our table and at 1:15 we asked where the other plates were. We were told by our waitress that they would be ready in another 10-15 minutes. We told her that was unacceptable as we needed to leave for the theater and wouldn’t have enough time to dine. Somehow staff miraculously delivered our selections almost immediately and we were able to finally enjoy our selections.

Even though the food was tasty our experience at Carmine’s was less than stellar and was seriously impacted by the brusque staff at the host station.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times in the past. The hostess at the front desk was extremely unfriendly and I felt like one of the herd waiting for a table. The waiter was wonderful and was served promptly! Food was good as always, just wished when you order the pasta to go with the meal you could order the vodka penne. Drinks are always fabulous.

We had reservations at 9 pm. The place was still really packed and busy. There are no good options for sitting or standing while you wait to be seated. It felt like you were either in the waiters way or that you were crowding diners. They have obviously packed the place to capacity with table and chairs which doesn’t leave room for comfort.

Our waiter was horrible. No suggestions, didn’t even get our drink order on the first visit to our table. The bread was cold and old. The meatballs and spaghetti were a surprise and actually very tasty.
Take the extra time that’d you spend waiting on a cramped table and go on to Little Italy or Brooklyn.

Food was great as usual but server was pretty bad. Never got any bread or offered any unlike all the tables around us. Orders a second Manhattan but never received it. When the bill finally came, they charged me for 2 and he wasn’t too apologetic about it. Maybe saw him 2-3 times our entire dinner. Definitely have not had service that bad before.

Fantastic food. Fantastic service. Absolutely recommend making reservations well in advanced. It was well worth it! We made reservations for Carmine's before we booked our trip (approximately 5 weeks early), and only 9:30 and 10pm slots were still available. If you don't make reservations, be willing to wait a while for a table.

Have eaten at Carmine’s before. Usually very good. But always trouble ordering because of the portion sizes. This time the pasta was way over cooked, and service was fair. Caesar salad was also bland. Soooo many great Italian places in NYC.

Authentic Italian food! We had the stuffed artichokes for an appetizers and they most certainly were as good as Grandma's! The portion sizes are generous so it's best to go with lots of family or friends. Wait staff was very attentive and professional.

Was not impressed. The waiter was forgetful and seemed overwhelmed or distracted. Served kids pasta when meal was almost over. Would not go back. I know it was the Christmas season. made reservation in September, but my table for 8 was so crowded couldn't fit food properly on table, and felt like we were on top of the table next to us.

Only go here if you are with a group of people who can agree on entrees!! Everything comes out in a huge bowl or platter to SHARE! The portions are for 3-4 people or more and the food comes out fast. It is touristy so if you are looking for fine dining, go elsewhere. Everything was good, tho. There's just no reason to ever go back. I like ordering an entree for ONE! We had to throw away 1/2 of the salad b/c only 3 of the 6 of of us wanted it. It was hard to find things that everyone could agree on. Who needs that?

My sister and I ate at Carmine’s on a holiday trip to New York. The food was incredible, and the service was amazing. There is no way 1 person could eat all of the food served in an entree. Well worth the price and wait!!!!

I felt rushed, no sooner did my salad arrive, my main course was at the table as well, since it is family style, by the time I finished my salad my calamari, penne vodka and chicken saltimbocca was cold. not that happy, if I did decide to go back again, I would order salad and calamari first, then put a order in for my main meal so I could enjoy the food and not eat it cold. we also got a pitcher of sangria $54.00. it was good/
