Our party of 6 had a great time at Carmine's. We arrived about 15 minutes early and were seated exactly at our reservation time even though the restaurant was very full with multiple parties waiting to be seated - no wait on a Saturday night at 6:30pm AND it was a holiday - a pleasant surprise!
We dined for 3 hrs and never felt rushed throughout our dining experience. Our waiter was personable and knowledgeable. There were times when we could not find our waiter since it was so busy but the other staff members were ready & willing to assist us.
Between the 6 of us, we shared 2 Appetizers, 1 Entree, 1 Dessert , and 6 Alcoholic beverages. This was not a LOT of food for 6 people as we each had a small amount, but it was just enough to feel satisfied due to the family size plates. The bill came out to about about $30+ per person plus tip (not bad).
Everything tasted good but my favorites were the Fried Calamari (so tender & delicious including the marinara sauce), the Red Wine Sangria (large glass, not too strong or too weak & delicious) and the unlimited complimentary bread that they bring to your table (the bread with the tomato spread on top & the one with onions on top were so good).
This is a great place for groups - not so much for a romantic date due to the noisy group atmosphere ( I don't think I spotted a single table for 2 - everyone here was in a group). The food is good and not too expensive if you order wisely and share. I would definitely come back again :)
Huge portions, and Eddie was amazing! Great experience.
Main dining room is impossibly loud. We were in the small dining room behind the bar which was much better. The portion sizes are huge - one entree can easily feed four. It was far too much food for two but if you can take left-overs home it’s fine. The food was delicious had the service was excellent.
Wonderful experience. Excellent service. Delicious food offerings.
Wonderful atmosphere - authentic old New York. Large round tables are great. Noise level is rough. Great for group of friends and families. Price is right.
Restaurant is beautiful and homey! Wait staff is nice and hospitable. Food is delicious and LARGE servings.
Carmine's was recommended by a friend. My family and I had a lovely evening, it was my Brothers birthday. Our waitress Amanda was awesome. Thank you will definitely be back.
The atmosphere and the food was great. The wait staff were efficient and courteous. I would definitely recommend Carmines for any occasion.
Portion were huge and food was good. The service was poor.
The waiter pushed for us to order way too much food. Our group was 8 people but 4 were small children. He pressed us to order for 8 adults. We won’t be back.
They sat us right away; we were a party of 5 however they squeezed us in a very tight corner, I am clostrophobic was uncomftable. The waitress forgot to put our order in and only realized after waiting for about 40 minutes . It was a family dinner but way too noisy , had to talk loud to speak so everyone could hear. I was disappointed in the chicken cutlets 2 pieces for 35 or 38 dollars, it cool
Gathered with family to celebrate my mom's 75th birthday, waiters and satff very attentive and wonderful , food was very salty. My only complain was that everything we ordered was salty. Everything from the salad to the shrimp scampi , the steak everything was EXTREMELY SALTY.
Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. Food was delicious. Sangria was great. We enjoyed being able to have a wonderful family dinner. Our waiter was personable & full of humor.
Great food and great service! Looking forward to visiting again!
So good and great service.
Friends moving away
Once again, Carmine's comes through for the special occasion family dinner. Our party of five was at the restaurant the same time as another party of at least 60 people, a separate party of 25 or so and then other smaller parties and they didn't miss a beat. Food appeared timely, fresh and hot. My only complaint is that we needed more people to justify ordering all of the food I wanted to try.
We have been to this Carmines location several times...Preferable over the Times Square location because of parking.
Food always great,servers always kind and gracious..
It was amazing and delicious!!
Go to place for family gatherings. Always excellent service.
We only enjoyed the calamari the rest of the food was cold not seasoned and overall not tasteful at all. Over priced for food that was not delicious is a major let down.
Excellent service, food delicious and very generous portions, I would highly recommend with any large family gathering or group!!
Hands down one of the best restaurants I’ve ever ate at. From the food to the service, everything was exceptional!
Appreciate the accommodating and friendly staff. We were a tight 11 and they made it work considering the alterations I made about 4x! Ha!
Attentive service, terrific food and plenty of it. Couldn't ask for better when traveling with a large group.
Great restaurant with great food
Great customer service and with the food being family style, 2 dishes easily fed 5 of us.
Besides waiting 40 minutes for my main dish to come out loved everything would def be back was told it was a small mix up
All good. Big plates. Some tasty
Great place! Giant portions for a couple.
Food was good, seating was terrible.
Food was great in portion sizes. Great for a family dinner. Taste was ‘blah’. Order the calamari to start, it was over cooked, heavy in oil and under seasoned. Baked clams were cooked well and taste great. Lasagna was again basic and bland. Order the strawberry shortcake and was very disappointed.
Javier was our server and he was phenomenal. The merlot cusumano was delicious and the meatballs were not just the size of my fist, but absolutely melted in your mouth. This is a place my wife and I will attend again in New York, as well as visit the location in Washington D.C. which we learned there is while on our visit. Thank You!
It was so crowded it was unpleasant. Food was expensive and really just ok. I will not be going back.
Great food and a bunch of it. Come hungry for some awesome eats.
We went to celebrate a birthday and had a reservation for 9 people, we had 2 last minute guest the waiter was great and able to accommodate the late comers. The food was good we had doggie bags to go. There was no sense that we were being rushed out. The waiter was wonderful, he made suggestions and at the last minute was able to produce a desert in lieu of a birthday cake. We had 9 Adults and 2 children.
Delicious as always! Huge family style portions perfect for 3-4 people to share.
It was nice coming back to Carmine as it’s been a minute. It did not disappoint at all. I will be going again .
