Great meal! The turkey was perfect and we had plenty of leftovers - really too much. When all was said and done, we hardly dented the turkey, sweet potatoes or the veggies. I would recommend offering the 1/2 priced Thanksgiving meal that serves 3-4 in-house, and not only for take-out. I made a reservation for three (couple plus one child), and we asked about the meal that serves 3-4, but we were denied. I was happy to get a nice Thanksgiving dinner, but it was way too much food.

Food is fantastic. The surcharge is a hard pull to swallow, but thinking of the waiters , chefs and all the restaurant staff who put themselves on the line amidst this pandemic, it is ok to dine out once in a while.

Their food is consistently delicious! Great for groups - if you're a party of 2 plan for leftovers (big, family-style portions).

We wasn’t clear the seafood platter was $74.00. I’ve visited Carmines numerous of occasions and never seen your entrees over $37. The waiter later explained the PA means prices varies or whatever. That should have been explained prior. Also, the electricity was out outside. No heat or light which should have been explained prior as well

We celebrated a birthday. The food and service was outstanding and they did a great job making us feel like they were taking all necessary precautions for Covid. We missed the normal lively atmosphere but we were so happy to be there.

We visit NYC every year for our anniversary and on that trip we always make reservations for Carmine’s
Carmine’s has great food
Service is always good however this time we got our food on time server accommodate huge plates on our table so she switched us to a bigger table. When we got the food we dug in quick and the food was cold.
Lasagna was warm on the outside cold in the middle
The only thing that was warm throughout was the steak we ordered.
When the server came over to ask us how everything was we didn’t complain because we thought it was the fan that was above us. When we started eating the veal we realized that everything was cold.
Almost unbeatable.
I don’t think we will be returning to Carmine’s, although service was phenomenal I don’t think it’s fair to pay almost 450.00 and not be able to eat it or eat it and shrug to the fact that it was cold.

Had a great time at Carmine's at 91st Street. Please make sure all of your guests arrive at the same time or you will have to wait outside. The food was tasty and the service was amazing! I would definitely recommend Carmine's to all of my friends and family!

The food was not as good in the past. We order the steak Contadina medium plus that after being sent back came out well done. For $135 unacceptable. That steak was about $100 when last here 8 months ago.

The scrapiello wings were good(have had better) but we asked for extra sauce on side it didnt come and when I asked again was told sauce made which order.(sounds absurd) I have got extra sauce many times

Under current circumstances cant recommend dining out there maybe still do take out. Sadly There is no bar and no atmosphere. Its like eating in a big cafeteria at the moment

Portions are family style which we appreciated. The food could have been better if prepared correctly. Mixed seafood-lobster was mushy. Eggplant parmigiana had no flavor. Ragu was acceptable. Caesar salad was fire! Escarole was good but too much oil was used.

As a veteran patron to this restaurant, I took my friends for the first time and was only a little dissatisfied with the service. It took long for the server to come over to our table to take our orders. But at least our table was not too near others, we had enough privacy. The food was good as always, the atmosphere was quiet enough but still lively.

Widely spaced tables inside due to Covid-19. Patio/Sidewalk tables didn't have much in the way of heat but were covered. Revised menu due to Covid but most favorites were still there.

The good was ok but the service was terrible. The waiter came by the table twice and forgot the bread. Never came around until he was leaving we had to ask someone else to bring me drinks and the check.
