Amazing experience, while there wasn’t any indoor siding as mandated by the city, the outdoor finding didn’t feel like your typical outdoor, the area was well heated and very comfortable

Amazing restaurant with amazing wait staff. Food was delicious and MORE than enough for our table. Gave it a low score for ambiance because seating was outdoors (thanks Covid). Otherwise, restaurant looks quite lovely inside. Will be back again! Hopefully with indoor dining *fingers crossed*

Unfortunately it was during outside dining only during Covid. The tents were lacking as were the heaters. It was pouring and windy, too cold to really enjoy out evening. The meal was great. The waiter did the best he could under the circumstances.

The food was delicious and the service, amazing. The portions are huge so unless you go with a big group or are starving don’t order so much. I went with 5 other people and we had two entrees. Definitely had left overs. Due to COVID we had to sit outside, under heaters. The heating systems were good and the dinner was enjoyable. 10/10 recommend!

Food was excellent. Service was not good. The waiter was extremely nice but he was frazzled. There aren’t many tables so I’m not sure what the problem was.

For not being allowed to dine indoors due to Cuomo's ridiculous order, Carmine's did an excellent job of creating as comfy an outdoor dining atmosphere as possible. The food was fantastic as well as the service. There were five of us so we had a table closer to the building which helped with the cold and wind. It was recommended to us by friends, formerly from New York, and I would definitely go back. The ONLY reason for the 4 stars for ambiance and noise level is because it was outside, totally out of Carmine's control. The inside was charming and we would have loved to have experienced a meal indoors. I highly recommend!

Exactly the type of top notch service and food expected from Carmines. Almost every staff member checked to make sure we didn’t need anything, the food was excellent, and everyone interacted with my kids and made them feel like they were stars. Travel from out of state at least once a year to eat here. Cleanliness was perfect.

We always come to NY during Christina’s time and for the last 3 years we have been going to Carmines on 44th, which has been wonderful every time. This year with the pandemic, the 44th location is closed and we booked the other location on Broadway. When I made the reservation weeks ago, if not a month ago, I mentioned it was a birthday dinner. They set us outside, under a tent, with a hole on a plastic, water from the street splashing on my face as cars passed by, absolutely no heating in place, table was bouncing, they set a group of 4 girl collage students beside us, not respecting the 6 feet social distancing (this girls were annoying, talking loud and absolutely not considerate of others).
Service wasn’t good, we ordered a bottle of Prosecco which we had open and serve ourselves, our appetizer arrived before our silverware.

NOT TO MENTION THAT THEY DIDNT ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT WE WERE CELEBRATING A SPECIAL OCCASION!

Simply disappointing.

I thought the service was par if that. because we had a lot of kids the servers didn't pay much attention to us, meanwhile we are the best tippers as I was a waitress and my husband a bar tender. I thought the young ladies taking temperatures were rude and snobby! Don't think Ill be coming back for awhile and will not recommend anytime soon.

It was my first time here in New York. I was highly recommended to go here to try pasta!!! After been traveling for United States for 2 years I came here and this was the first place that I went. Service was 4 from 10. Communication 5 from 10. I order an entree for $13 and on the check was 22. I was just expecting more from the restaurant.

Our waiter Charlie was simply the first best part off sitting down with my son.
Charlie was so professional
Made all the dishes sound so absolutely delicious
So personable in a professional way
You can see he really values his job at our favorite place
Omar that came after was just as awesome
We usually go to the 44th Street
But now my son only wants 91st Carmine’s
Thank you for a beautiful memory of COVID-19 Thanksgiving with my son
