Carmine's - 91st Street - NYC
Platters of made to order antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing among friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!
Awesome food and service. Great experience, all employees were so nice and helpful.
Good value , nice atmosphere, friendly staff, great food.
Our SERVER was beyond EXCELLENT!!! She recommended the special and it was delicious... When you rarely get exceptionally good service it’s a breath of fresh air when coupled with the food it made the experience much better... AWESOME JOB
I've been taking my family to Carmine's ever since it opened. We've had birthday, graduation, general celebrations for at least a dozen or more of my family members. So we're used to a pretty noisy atmosphere, but the other night the noise was unbearable. But worse than that was the service. Never before had we had to wait so long for our food and dessert. Unfortunately, we have to scratch Carmine's off our list of celebratory dining experiences.
Best Caesar salad in ny. We’ve been eating at Carmine’s for over 25 years, always a great meal.
Great food! Never disappoints and always leave stuffed.
Had a reunion of 7 teachers, ALL hearty eaters & we had a great time. Service was top shelf. Started with GREAT salad & a surprise when one of our group said "we should ask for the Chicken Wings" (NOT prominent on the menu). We didn't realize Carmine's had them. Well, we ordered them & WOW they were excellent-must order the next time we return. Our main dishes were Chicken Parm on a bed of Spaghetti & Porter House Steak surrounded by Sausage, Peppers & Onions. BOTH dishes were excellent & filling. (We did cut the VERY Large Chicken Parm in 1/2. Might order 2 of them next time there. The service was great with our waiter (I think-Anthony or Antonio) very personable & professional. The day was made even more special when the manager (Paola) came over & informed us that our former boss & his wife had called in from California & picked up the check!!! WOW- what a gesture & a GREAT story we won't go into now. Our individual & group's saying when it comes to Carmine's is "WE'LL BE BACK". It will be yours once you go to Carmine's. ENJOY !
I've been here many times and it's always a pleasure. The food is consistently good, staff is always pleasant, and the atmosphere is ripe.
The stuffed salmon was amazing and it’s a special on Saturday’s.
My second time at Carmines and I’m always satisfied. Also my second time coming for a birthday gathering. Very nice environment and the food is delicious.
Lots of forearms and armpits and stomachs in our faces during the meal. We were reached across too many times to count. Not really well trained but kind staff. Food was pretty salty.
My Mother- In - Law birthday, her 85th respectively.
Able to accommodate very well for 10 people and had a great time.
Our server Raheem was excellent. he made our experience better and helped us order the perfect amount of food for 6 and made us laugh all night. Amazing at his job.
Food was excellent as always. Great place to get friends and family together to eat & catch up with each other.
The overall service was excellent however the actual meal was not so good the shrimp with linguine was very greasy not flavorful at all and didn't have that many shrimp either. The porterhouse steak was dry and tough. asked for medium rare.
Tables too close together. Meat dishes too small for price
Amazing staff and manager was super nice and friendly
Large portions so great for sharing. Perfect for group events. Food was delicious.
Food was delicious as always but once our server realized we weren’t ordering a bunch of cocktails he couldn’t care less about us thank goodness other people on the restaurant helped us or we wouldn’t have had napkins or anything and everyone got there food before us even though we were sitting for a good 1/2 hour before they sat down
We love going to Carmine's but we had a less than stellar experience with our party of eight. Food did not arrive until we had been at our table for an hour. The two people who ordered two glasses of red wine were served their drinks mid salad and the bottle of white wine did not arrive until the food was being delivered to the table, where one entire entree was not included. There were eight hungry people waiting for three main courses and it was another ten minutes before the last entree was served, leaving the people who had just their white wine delivered to wait until their course arrived. Not pleased with the roll out of this meal for a large group.
The food was excellent. My sisters first time, she loved it.
2nd time at this place and boy it didnt disappoint. Great as the very 1st I visited. Food delicious, services fantastic, atmosphere amazing... A beautiful lady accompanied me and it was her visit and she loved it. Carmine's you guys are great, keep yonthe great work.

Love place, great staff food amazing
Very nice restaurant! We will
Be back ! Waitress was very nice and responsive to our needs
Omar was our server - he was welcoming, friendly and efficient.
Carmine’s was great, as usual. Food was delicious and hit the spot. Was had dined here previously so knew it was family style and large portions. We came hungry but still left with leftovers. The only thing that was lacking was the enormous crowd. Wow. So glad we were able to make reservations!
We are locals who love Carmine’s. Omar was our waiter and he was excellent. Had another fantastic dinner with some of the beat wait staff in NYC. See you again soon!
Horrible horrible horrible experience. Not sure if it was this location but I was super disappointed. The garlic bread super burnt. The shrimp and eggplant parm was extremely disappointing. The server was no where to be found. A totally waste of $250.
This is my 5th time going to Carmine’s. Every time I go i take friends who have never been. They are amazed of the size of the food that is served. It’s hilarious !!
However, they are always happy and full at the end of dinner.
Huge portions, great price and amazing service!! This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in the world!
Great service and outstanding food. Our waiter Angelo was an outstanding service professional and the food was impeccable.
Will never miss this wonderful restaurant on a NYC trip
Excellent food & great experience. Staff always attentive & do a great job.
What is the point of making a reservation when you have to wait? We arrived 15mins early and can understand waiting a few mins but its upsetting to see multiple parties (ranging from 2-6 persons) seated before us. We went to the hostess to ask what was the hold up as we were the only bot being seated and it was 15 mins AFTER our reserved time. We were RUDELY told they didnt have a table for our party and we would need to wait. Can you imagine our surprise when we saw at least 10 empty tables once we were finally seated in the back of the restaurant. The food is great but the hostess ruined the entire mood. I cant imagine coming to this location again if thats how they treat people.
It was a Saturday, a day after Valentine’s Day so it’s expected to be a little crowded. My reservation was for 9:30, I arrived, and had to wait about 30 mins for a table at the bar. No a problem. Once seated, the food serving is enormous, it’s served for at least 4 people. But was it amazing. The fried calamari and the lasagna afterwards was amazing. Well, worth the experience and the money. I’ll be back. But I’ll be back with more people so they can help me and my wife finish the food. Amazing place. Amazing server. I loved it.
