    I don’t even know where to start. We had no idea who our server was - the entire time, our server was “too cool.” Got a fun party favor in my martini: a rubber band. Salad (app) came the same time as the food… bolognese wasn’t even good… oh there was a fuzz in my other martini, and the entire time the server didn’t apologize, he was defensive. Like, what? Never again - I’m from 101st and Broadway, 40 years, I’ll never go back.

    Le décor est superbe, la nourriture est typique et répond exactement aux attentes de celui qui cherche un restaurant italien de qualité. Des plats copieux, à partager, de l’entrée au dessert tout est très goûteux, généreux et parfaitement exécuté. Notre serveuse n’était pas la meilleure ni la plus à l’écoute mais tout le reste du personnel était incroyable… J’y retournerai sans hésiter!!

    Usual good food but wiater was surprisingly indifferent and inattentive. Never smiled, barely spoke beyond the bare minimum. And then he lost my credit card! C'mon Carmines, hire competent wait staff.

    I've been coming to Carmine's since the first week of their opening, decades ago. We were so happy that this was our new neighborhood restaurant! I was celebrating a friend's birthday lunch and confirmed this with the very friendly hostess. Our waiter, on the other hand, was surly and dismissive and couldn't be bothered with our dining experience. I had to enlist other staff in order to communicate anything with him. And of course, nothing was done to acknowledge my friend's birthday. Should I return to Carmine's and find that I am in this person's station, I will certainly ask to be moved. If this man does not like his job, then he shouldn't be dealing with the public. The staff certainly contributes to your dining experience, and this was not the way that our celebration lunch should have been.

    Came to this location to avoid high parking fees and traffic. Most of my party was able to find street parking but the meter gave my husband a hard time…. Some app with a minimum $35 to reserve 2 hrs but he didn’t initially pay that way so it was a little confusing… the food is better than Olive Garden but I must say I expected better options overall and especially appetizers. I think my teen boys were hoping since the food is Italian, there will be pizza but they did well with the Parmesan chicken. Cheap with their shrimp and a little off on how the portions actually divide. Two pasta’s and an entree fed 7 well, 1 and the salad was large enough for about 5/6 people easily. Drinks/cocktails were great here. Ambiance was just okay, they dimmed the lights and turned up the music around 5pm so you can sense that everyone had to speak load at their tables and that made it sound like a school cafeteria. Bathroom extremely small, I think it was only 2 stalls, but not bad as far as cleanliness.

    We had outside dining reservation on Thanksgiving! We enjoyed the outside seating and the food was great. We had horrible service on multiple levels. Service staff was friendly but received our food but no plates to eat on, difficult getting utensils and glasses for everyone in our party, waited a long time for food to be served. Maybe just because we were seated outside?

    We ordered the Thanksgiving turkey feast. In general the food was fine but too cold for my taste. Many plates and little space in the table. Wine is served in water glass. It was busy but the ambience was festive. I would recommend that the turkey feast is probably a better option for pick up and enjoy it at home. Our party was 3 people and spent close to $500 including drinks and tip. We had plenty of leftovers. It was super easy to find parking.

    Carmines is a favorite restaurant of our family but last night we don’t know what happened. Took a long time to sit us despite having a reservation, took a long time for our waitress to come; our server forgot to order half of our meals. Thankfully Alejandro, Shawn and the manager made things better. Overall ok but ok is not the standard for Carmines.
