It was one the worst experiences dining with Antonio.
I was celebrating my mother in law birthday and he planned to surprise her with a cake I brought in. The server dropped the cake and it went downhill from there. I was not accommodated afterwards and no discount or not a new fixed cake. It was disrespectful and disappointing

It was my second time here, but first time with the husband. He was super surprised by the massive amount of food and how filling even a small portion is. The drinks were pricier than necessary, but we had a satisfying two each and it wasn’t watered down at all. I had requested a specialty dish that wasn’t in the menu and they still honored my request and it was delicious! It was a dish a friend had posted on IG so I don’t even know the name of it. Sorry.

It was of course totally different than usual however I felt safe. The customer service per usual was great. I would just be mindful of late reservations like mine because the new law states they have to be done by 11 so I’ll probably get earlier reservations moving forward.

Food was disappointing, but we were so hungry and in time crunch we just settled. Chicken was extremely dry and burned bit all over it. Pasta was good so that saved us.

The chicken parm tasted like ritz crackers. I love that the plates are plentiful especially with the cost but some of the meals did not need to be so costly. The food was a hit or miss. Must say the service overall was spectacular. My server Mario was very tentative along with his other colleagues who checked in on us. I’d recommend going with a larger group if cost is a concern. Plates are better for sharing or more family type vibe when sharing.

Hello I visit carmines often , I recently was at Atlantic City and had a great dinner with family. On Tuesday I had a reservation for 2 and was so disappointed with the food portion and service. I never complaint , but I am a loyal customer and it’s not fare that I ordered a family style dish and was given 2 pieces of chicken. It shouldn’t matter if there’s only 2 people eating from this dish I should get my moneys worth especially during COVID

Carmine's is and will always be a destination for us! The food is spectacular, the service is always great, fast, and elegant. I wish it were cheaper, but we certainly get what we pay for. We try to get there twice a year or so and we've missed not being in the restaurant since March. We appreciate the reopening and the continuing ambience we found familiar. Looking forward to our next visit!

Horrible service took 75 minutes just for one plate of pasta to come out. The top was extremely dry like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a long time . The waitress only checked on us 3 times in 2 hours , was extremely hard to order anything past the pasta dish wound up just packing everything to go and ate somewhere else . Definitely not the same service I known carmines to give, very disappointed 😔

It was a bit cool where we were sitting because the ceiling fans were on. The food was great. Every time we've dined here the food is always served hot.
