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!
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
The food was excellent. My sisters first time, she loved it.
Charlie our waiter was outstanding, the food was outstanding and quite frankly Carmine's was outstanding!!!
It was an awesome amazing Restaurant!!!
Everything and Everyone was fabulous

Bread for the table were pretty much rocks. The meal came out suspiciously quick and cold.
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.
Delicioso Italian Food! Excellent service.The restaurant was very busy so take the time to make a reservation.I would recommended for a grupo of minimum 4 people.
Carmine’s is one of my favorite restaurants to go to in NYC! I’m never disappointed when I go. Food is amazing, drinks are great, and the service is always on point!
Love this restaurant it was so good the food was amazing exquisite.....we are definitely returning to eat for our anniversary it was an awesome experience, fast service.
It was a really busy weekend (Valentine’s Day), but that’s no excuse. Upon entry I walk up to the stand where you check in for reservations, the women proceeded to talk as they move around tables And see availability, no one greeted me for 10mins... Then when they finally seated me and my friend (2) the seating was extremely tight. Literally could rub elbows with the individual at the next table . Through the entire dining experience I observed managers and waiters just building tables out of thin air , there was no space . And they continued to put people closer and closer together making the dining experience unpleasant. Not too mention we started with one waiter and then it switched in the middle of the night . When it was time for the food to come we had random servers bring out the food going to every table asking “did you order ...” by the time the food reached the table it had already made its way are out d the whole section and was being talked over by the waiter . Don’t get me wrong the food was delicious but the service needs to be better regardless of the high volume time . Service plays a large part in whether ppl will return or not .
We had a very great server and the food was amazing. I will definitely be returning.
Great time, great food and the waiter was great!
We were a party of 9 and Emily was the best at taking care of us. Food came out quickly and we ordered a lot.
Good tastes like Grandma made it!! Loved the food authentic Italian in every way!!
I love the food from Carmines. But the service is terrible. It wasn't that busy the the server couldn't handle her section. She forgot our appetizers and then forgot us completely while she was talking with her coworkers. This is not the first time the service has been horrible there.
Waiter was great occasion was great just really loud but can’t control a perfect night.
I have been going here for over 10 years.My only complaint is I came with two people that were not from Newyork and had never experienced carmines and they didn’t have any bread to serve before the meal.This is a great disservice as their bread is great.I told my guest about it before hand only to not be able to receive the bread with our meal
I love the the atmosphere and services. The food is always on point.
Food was great and nice portion size. Service too, was great. We were a large group coming from different places, and they would not seat us without the entire party being there. We were only missing 2 people and were ready to order. They told us we had 15 minutes for ALL to be seated, or they would give our table away.
The entire experience was fantastic! It was my first Valentine's day with my new girlfriend and Carmine's gave it an extra sense of romance! Our waiter Chris was fantastic, gave us all the information we needed and never too pushy. 10/10 service and when we come back, I'll definitely ask to work with him again. Great, delicious food selection that made us feel like we got a great bang for our buck.
Linguini and white clam sauce is the best - also 1st time tried the portobello parmigiana excellent so it will not be my last
We were regulars here in the early 2000s, when we lived in NYC, and returned for the first time in 12 years. Truly as amazing as we remembered!
Way more food than we needed, but it was AMAZING! We have been recommending them everywhere! Class act!
Had a great time! Of course I couldn’t finish any of it lol it was a pleasurable experience! Cannot wait to go back
Waited 50 minutes for our table despite having a reservation.
Service was non existent. We had to serve our selfs. Very disappointed.
Took my fiancé to eat for our anniversary drove 2 hours just to eat here and it took a hour and a half to get our food which was not what we ordered then you guys continued to mess up the order till I told the waiter never mind because we were no longer hungry because of the such long wait the waiter was then very rude and ignored us .. so I just paid for my appetizers and left NEVER AGAIN !
Birthday dinner. Servings are big and filling and very affordable
