Our waiter Charlie was simply the first best part off sitting down with my son.
Charlie was so professional
Made all the dishes sound so absolutely delicious
So personable in a professional way
You can see he really values his job at our favorite place
Omar that came after was just as awesome
We usually go to the 44th Street
But now my son only wants 91st Carmine’s
Thank you for a beautiful memory of COVID-19 Thanksgiving with my son
Great meal! The turkey was perfect and we had plenty of leftovers - really too much. When all was said and done, we hardly dented the turkey, sweet potatoes or the veggies. I would recommend offering the 1/2 priced Thanksgiving meal that serves 3-4 in-house, and not only for take-out. I made a reservation for three (couple plus one child), and we asked about the meal that serves 3-4, but we were denied. I was happy to get a nice Thanksgiving dinner, but it was way too much food.
It was all perfect.
Perfect food, waitress, ambiance,
everything. Couldn't have planned it better.
Well known watery on the Upper West Side; if you like 'family style' Italian food look no further.
Thank you so much for catering my party on 11/25th !! We had a blast, loved the food and our waiter. Great service.
Loved the experience and the food. Only good things to say about this place. I totally recommend it
Food is fantastic. The surcharge is a hard pull to swallow, but thinking of the waiters , chefs and all the restaurant staff who put themselves on the line amidst this pandemic, it is ok to dine out once in a while.
Family vacation dinner for 7 meal was amazing and definitely reasonable for the price and amount of food! Very friendly staff
The meals are huge definitely a family style of eating. I love that.
We came for a birthday celebration. Wonderful food and service!
Their food is consistently delicious! Great for groups - if you're a party of 2 plan for leftovers (big, family-style portions).
Friendly and efficient service with delicious and plentiful food.
Our favorite place to celebrate birthdays! Food is always good, generous portions for sharing. Linguini and white clam sauce for the win!!!
I loved it good food and I enjoyed my birthday thank you carmines I will be coming back
Excelente comida, los platos son muy grandes y deliciosos. Muy recomendable
Excellent all round. Had a wonderful time. Can’t wait to go back. Would recommend to anyone who appreciates a fine dining experience.
The food was spectacular! Our waiter Charlie gave my daughter, husband, and I service we won’t forget ❤️
was pretty good food was outstanding cant wait to come back again
We wasn’t clear the seafood platter was $74.00. I’ve visited Carmines numerous of occasions and never seen your entrees over $37. The waiter later explained the PA means prices varies or whatever. That should have been explained prior. Also, the electricity was out outside. No heat or light which should have been explained prior as well
Had a wonderful 40th birthday dinner!
The service was good and prompt. The food in my opinion was just ok. The pasta could’ve definitely been could a little more. Ive never had to chew pasta so much.
Food is excellent and was served pretty quickly for what we ordered.
I have been Eating Here since I was 8 Years old ... Food and Service is always Great love the Server Mario!
The food was amazing and our waiter named Charlie added to my wonderful birthday dinner
Everything was amazing well worth the money! I’ve loved this place since I was a teenager and it still hasn’t change...upscale food is always on point....great for birthdays ❤️
We celebrated a birthday. The food and service was outstanding and they did a great job making us feel like they were taking all necessary precautions for Covid. We missed the normal lively atmosphere but we were so happy to be there.
We visit NYC every year for our anniversary and on that trip we always make reservations for Carmine’s
Carmine’s has great food
Service is always good however this time we got our food on time server accommodate huge plates on our table so she switched us to a bigger table. When we got the food we dug in quick and the food was cold.
Lasagna was warm on the outside cold in the middle
The only thing that was warm throughout was the steak we ordered.
When the server came over to ask us how everything was we didn’t complain because we thought it was the fan that was above us. When we started eating the veal we realized that everything was cold.
I don’t think we will be returning to Carmine’s, although service was phenomenal I don’t think it’s fair to pay almost 450.00 and not be able to eat it or eat it and shrug to the fact that it was cold.
The food was amazing, big servings and our waiter was super informative and nice.
Simply amazing!! I was not sure if was ready to eat insde of a resturant yet,
but I took a chance because of my husband and I felt very comfortable inside with the seating amd the food was great!
Had a great time at Carmine's at 91st Street. Please make sure all of your guests arrive at the same time or you will have to wait outside. The food was tasty and the service was amazing! I would definitely recommend Carmine's to all of my friends and family!
The food was not as good in the past. We order the steak Contadina medium plus that after being sent back came out well done. For $135 unacceptable. That steak was about $100 when last here 8 months ago.
The scrapiello wings were good(have had better) but we asked for extra sauce on side it didnt come and when I asked again was told sauce made which order.(sounds absurd) I have got extra sauce many times
Under current circumstances cant recommend dining out there maybe still do take out. Sadly There is no bar and no atmosphere. Its like eating in a big cafeteria at the moment
Portions are family style which we appreciated. The food could have been better if prepared correctly. Mixed seafood-lobster was mushy. Eggplant parmigiana had no flavor. Ragu was acceptable. Caesar salad was fire! Escarole was good but too much oil was used.
Laura and Emily are great! The portion sizes are huge! Great place to eat for any type of celebration.
I love the food the service the only thing was they wasn’t able to accommodate us inside and it was super cool. Charlie the waitress was great 🙌🏻
Service and food was excellent
Food was Amazing And the Service Was great I was last minute and they came thru for me no hassle no complain
Delicious! Family-style dishes. Had a great time!
Carmine’s strictly adhere to indoor dining regulations; we were appropriately spaced, all staff wore masks, and hand sanitizer was readily available. The food was good per usual and Omar was an excellent server.
As always great food and service! Glad they’re still in business
I love this place!!!!! Excellent food, good wine, and excellent attention.
