Carmine's - 91st Street - NYC
The server was amazingly kind & the food was delicious
We have always loved Carmine's. Now that we live on the other side of the country, whenever we go to NYC, we make sure to have dinner at Carmine's.
Love the food! Would definitely recommend to all my friends!
Good for big groups and kids. Service was excellent. Definitely much better Italian places in the area, but this is a good option if you need to prioritize space and family-friend place over other things.
AMAZING Our server WAS Mesmerizing I will definitely come back.
We were seated in a timely fashion and service was great. Everyone enjoyed the food and it was priced at a great value. Would recommend and return. Great for large groups.
My group originally had an 8.30pm reservation and weren't seated until 9.30pm. We certainly prefer the Time Square Carmines over 91st Street.
Such a great place for family
We love Carmine’s!! Excellent food, great service and atmosphere. Perfect for birthdays and any special occasion! The portions are HUGE and family style. Prices are high but you can easily split entrees. Can’t wait to return!!
I luv Carmine’s food is excellent and delicious
I celebrated my birthday and my husband ordered
The Titanic omg !!! Amazing
My second time at this location and so far have not been disappointed... Went there for our 20th Anniversary and my wife and kids loved the ambience, service and food. Will definitely visit the place again.
I have been going there for the past year religiously and live the food and service. Always consistent. As long as they continue to operate this way I will be a devoted customer and advocate! Love this place.
Overall it was an amazing experience, food was perfect and the waiter never need to be ask for anything... perfect place
Amazing restaurant, amazing service, amazing food and amazing quantities of food. Everyone took food home. Eddie was our waiter and he was outstanding! From the way he described the food we were already tasting it! Look forward to my next time there.
Carmine’s Restaurant on the Upper West Side is an institution unto itself! It should be on everyone’s bucket list to experience a dinner here at this NYC gem! Amazing vibe and fabulous service. The female hostess was very nice. Our 2 male servers were so great!! The Carmine’s salad and Chicken Parmigiana was divine! We celebrated my cousin Christina Carr’s Birthday and we all had a lovely time!!
The first impression was our hostess who really took care of my family and made us comfortable without us even asking.
Bobusan was our great server that made the night just go great. Courteous, professional, polite, attentive and funny!
Food was very good and a great atmosphere for a group or family night out. I have been to this location on 91st , 4 or 5 times over the years and have always had a good experience. This one one extra good.
This is a fabulous place to celebrate a birthday or get together with old friends.
Carmines food is great. The service is slow and the staff appears busy when there aren't very many people around.
I made reservations for my daughters 9th bday. We arrived a few moments b4 our scheduled time. We were told to wait bc there was a waitstaff meeting. We were told 10 mins my guest become anxious after 15 mins my toddler is running up n down the stairs my bday girl is bored by partially disabled mom is getting weary of the long wait & everyone is hungry. I ask again she says the meeting is still on going n it would be another 10 or 15 mins. That sucked.., then a very pleasant man whom appeared to b the manager said that they were preparing our table and we’d be seated shortly. We were. That was the hard part. Our waiter was quite pleasant. My only issue was that usually the waiter serves the food after it’s presented to the table n then anything after that we serve ourselves. He didn’t serve the food. So we had to struggle with the heavy plates to serve the food to all our guest. That sucked too.
Overall our experience went well, the food was fantastic as per usual. I will definitely be back.
Maybe what some waiters do others don’t.
I have come here every year for my birthday for the past 27 years. It was a tradition that began when I was young with my mom and has continued with my own family. I enjoy the friendliness of the staff and their knowledge of the dishes. Going to Carmine’s is always a great night out for both my family and myself!
The Food was amazing , the shrimp parm was so yummy , great place to bring the family,
Ive been here a few times and the experience was always great. The past time I was here it seemed like they forgot about us. The table next to us had a party of four just like us and they got their main 15 before us and they showed ten minutes before us. Our chicken parm was not hot but room temperature and our waiter was to busy yapping with tabels then making sure the food was coming out. Experience was just ok and not worth the price.
Carmine’s is our family’s favorite restaurant for celebrating any special occasion. The food is excellent and the service is always professional.
I would recommend Carmine’s to anyone looking to have an outstanding dining experience.
Man, what an amazing lunch. Awesome service, great food and a perfect, spacious environment with everyone celebrating.
Not a bad spot but way overpriced for the low quality food they serve.
Amazing as always, just really wish they could do something about a waiting area for people.
We had a reservation and still had to wait almost 40 mins. The tables were so close to each other and the walls that it was difficult to hear each other and be comfortable with people and waiters squeezing by. The food was okay, but not worth it given the rest of the experience.
Fabulous! We luckily got a 5pm reservation for 4 people a few days beforehand and it worked out really well for our 8pm show of Wicked on Broadway. We were seated within 3 minutes of arriving and let me tell you, this place was PACKED! We overheard the staff telling people without a resi that the wait time was 1 hour 45 minutes! Our waiter was super friendly and attentive. He did not pressure us to hurry up when we couldn’t decide what to choose for our main dishes. Food was perfectly timed and delicious. As anyone who’s come here before knows, it’s family style so the portions are huge! We order 2 apps and 3 main dishes and we each had left overs for days. When we were finishing up and realized the time (7:15pm) and we needed to drive down to 51st Street our waiter got us buttoned up and out the door in minutes! It was an awesome meal and a great time. Can’t wait to come back!
Spectacular service and the food was super delicious.
Servers are knowledgeable, service on point and food was amazing...
Great place for everybody, and great food , also enough space for nice dinner.
The Drinks In The Bar were outstanding, had the Sangria with Brandy, a Pitcher Full with Cherries in it!! We had been walking for possibly Six HRs that day since we were Tourists from KC, Mo. Charlie was our Waiter that Evening and We Had Bread And Vinegar w/ Oil that we Dipped into it Then a Marvelous Salad Which was Huge! Lol Then Main Course was Lasagna Plus Shrimp Scampi! OMG it was Excellent and then A Dessert Of Cheesecake!! We were so Full When Finished Coffee As Well! Simply A Marvelous Experience! My Second Time Visiting The Restaurant But My Wife’s Very First Time And She Was Very Impressed For Sure! Thank You So Much For Such Fine Dining In NYC!😁
We had an amazing time.
Enjoyed the calamari,Cesar salad,four pasta special and the tugboat for dessert.
Charlie our server was fun and entertaining. We loved him and the food.
One of the Best places to eat with friends or loved ones!!
Horrible service and the place looks dirty. It needs a renovation. Bathroom very dirty. Horrible waiter.
Everything was great!!
Listen I’ve been to Carmine’s many times but this time will be my last. Yes the portions are large and there is plenty to share but if the food is horrible than what’s the point. The salad special of the night was something I could do with my eyes closed at a salad bar. The pasta was over cooked and soft and the sauce so salty our table ordered 5 belittles of water. Baked clams and calamari were good. Felt bad for the waiter as he was excellent
We arrived a little earlier than our reservation time and were seated right away. The food came out very quickly and tasted as delicious as usual! We love Carmine’s!
Birthday celebration . Food was delicious. More than reasonably priced for manhattan. Waiter forgot to bring our salad but more than enough food without it so we didn’t care. Didn’t love the eggplant parmigiana but the chicken scarpiello and penne vodka were outstanding. Fried zucchini and stuffed artichoke appetizers were delicious. Will be back again
