Carmine's - 91st Street - NYC
Great food and very good service. Very reasonable prices and huge portions. Will definitely be eating there again!
Everything was delicious and Danielle our server was fantastic. I asked for her after the first time I went
Carmines is one of my favorite place to celebrate our families special moments. We have celebrated birthday's to graduations in this great feeling of space.
I said it was wife’s birthday we got desert and there was no candles
I told waiter and he just ignored it
My daughter is four and she wanted to sing but we couldn’t
I was very disappointed we go all the time but now we might have to go elsewhere
Portions are a lot smaller than in years pass. Price for a small piece of salmon was overpriced. Waiter got confused with order but overall very good.
Our group of 3 people started with that Saturday night's salad special which we all agreed was superb and really delicious: mixed greens, cranberries, walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, red onions and a great dressing. We followed that with the angel hair pasta pomodoro. All of us enjoyed it, but 2 of us pulled out the sliced garlic pieces and thought it was a little too garlicky, but the 3rd person thought the garlic was fine. We rounded out the dinner with chicken scarpriello, which has been a favorite of mine here in the past. This time I thought the breast portions of the dish were pretty dry (often a problem with chicken breasts) however, the overall taste of the dish, and the drumsticks in particular were very good.
The restaurant was jam packed and the din of the restaurant was daunting. One of us thought it was like the setting for a Fellini movie. You go to Carmine's knowing it's going to be a rousing experience and this filled the bill. All in all, we had a great time enjoying our food and watching other tables tackle their feasts and Titanic desserts.
Wonderful will come again
We had reservations and showed up 10 minutes early and was not seated until 20 minutes after our scheduled time. Food is amazing and service is great otherwise.
Carmine’s never disappoints. We were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival. The food was delicious and plentiful, as always. Our waiter was attentive and helpful re food restrictions. Always enjoy the bonus of having leftovers for the next day.
Fantastic experience. They took us right to our table. Great service. Couldn’t be happier.
We won't be going back there. Staff was rude, food wasn't great and was too loud. Not the Carmine's experience I am used to and love.
I decided to bring my family to Carmine’s for my sisters birthday. Our waitress was very sweet and the food was good. After a very nice time we paid the bill and left. My niece called me the following day to inform me that there was an unauthorized charge of $120 on her card from Carmine’s. Her credit card receipt clearly reflected that the charge was suppose to be $65.00. I checked my receipt and sure enough I was over charged by $42.00 PLUS there was an additional unauthorized charge of $110.00. I will dispute the overages on my bill to my credit card company to stop payment until the matter is resolved. However, I will never patronize Carmine’s ever again!!!!
My daughter had her 18th birthday party there with friends. The food was delicious, everyone was super nice, the service was great. We loved it! We are going back to order food from there again next weekend we liked it so much.
I Love eating at Carmine's the food excellent and the service is fabulous. You get very big potions of food. I'm a hearty eater but even I can't finish it all. My overall experience is great at Carmine's...
The service was great. All the staff were attentive and constantly came to check up on our gorup. The food was tasty and definitely filled us up. A great place to come as a hungry group.
Perfect night! My friend visiting from LA loved the food, our server & the ambiance. Great people watching and enjoyed a great chat with the table next to us :)
Carmine’s on 91st street tables are a little close together but is still cozy. The mussels were fresh and the pasta with the lemon chicken was great.
Our waiter Charlie was both entertaining and informative! He made the experience great!
This is my second time coming to Carmine’s and absolutely love everything about this restaurant
I would recommend because their portions make it a true family style restaurant and a decent bargain. Mixed value on food; the salad was good, ingredients blended together nicely, the spaghetti with garlic and oil was very good, but the chicken Marsala was only fair....gravy was caked, and chicken was fatty.
The service was excellent by Brianna our main waitress. Pleasant, friendly and accommodating. The food was good considering the “mass production” factor and the ambiance was ideal. We will return regularly
The food is gorgeous that makes me feel like I am in Italy exactly! I will bring my friends ang family to here next time!
Great food and atmosphere!
True New York Italian style food .
Carmine’s is always a family favorite! You know exactly what you’re going for...delicious Italian food in a relaxed environment and Carmine’s never disappoints!
Okay experience. Food was great. Service was average. Overall a decent experience.
This place is a must visit if you go to New York. I came here as my first time in the city and this place is the place to go if you want to experience a good Italian restaurant. I ordered one of their special which could feed up to 5 people. Good value for what you get. I highly recommend.
Nice place to eat good food. Just mind that servings are huge. Each serving is for between 4/6 people to share. Still, recommendable.
Food was excellent. The place was packed so the service was not great. The other issue was our seating. As a party of two, they basically stuck us between two other table in an area that would normally have been a walkway. I will give it up to the restaurant for making the most of the space but it was a little uncomfortable.
We had 5pm reservations and they took us right on time despite all the people waiting.
Rhasheem our waiter was excellent. Very friendly personable and gracious. He was on point the whole meal. We ordered 2 specials and they did not disappoint. Enough leftovers for another meal at home. Cannolis were amazing!!!
Also he did not rush us at all. Meal was spaced out and though people were waiting for tables they were not getting rid of you to turn the table over.
The restaurant was very loud but what would one expect at the best Italian family driven restaurant. My only comment would be you wouldn’t want to come here if you wanted a quiet intimate evening or to speak quietly to your friends:family at the table.
We will continue to come back.
Service was prompt and food was good with huge portions to share family style. Very loud, waiters and bus boys kept knocking into my chair all night, I moved our table closer to the wall and scooched my chair in but they still kept knocking into me. Still had a fun time with old college friends!
We were in NYC for NB National track meet.! Our daughter ran well and loves Carmine’s chicken Marsala so we went to celebrate! We also had Carmine’s salad which was delicious and lasagne. Way too much food for 3 of us! We got to enjoy it the next night, too! Have you ever thought about serving a side of pasta with the Marsala?
Was loud crowded and hot. We were a party of 8 and barely fit at the table. We are not large people ..
Although the food was delicious, the heat was almost unbearable which made it difficult to enjoy our evening.
FUN, BUSY VENUE! Family style servings, GREAT SERVICE!
Fun and festive atmosphere where we took visiting out of towners. The spaghetti with meatballs, green salad and cheesecake dessert were fantastic. The penne with vodka sauce arrived cold. Service was excellent. We enjoyed our time at Carmine’s and would definitely return.
Giant portions for family style but the food itself was good, not great
It was our father's birthday dinner. My sister and I, as well as our dad, were very pleased with the meal. The restaurant was also very accommodating with the high chair and booster seat for my niece and nephew. It was a wonderful experience as always.
Love Carmine’s! I especially like the one on the UWS...feels more like a neighborhood place than a touristy place...food was delicious...service great...we had a great time!
Best service ever, and good was amazing. I would highly recommend anyone to go to this establishment.
Webe been coming here formyears fornthr sunday four pasta special and fratelli moscato and its gets better every time
