Italian
Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.

Was able to be seated and waited non promptly. Food is always delicious. Drinks are pricey but it is a casino.

Food was delicious. It’s family style but portions are reasonable. We started with the small shrimp cocktail. Shrimp were large and meaty. Main course was veal parmigiana with a side of escarole. Veal was cooked to perfection and I loved the gravy. As a side we had a lot of escarole. I would have preferred less bark but it was flavorful. The bread basket has different types of bread. One tasted like pizza.

In one word, Excellent! As always Carmine's food is top notch. And I'm speaking from being an Italian American from Brooklyn where the best Italian food is found in many of our Italian restaurants. Thanks once again Carmines.

If you come to Carmine's, don't eat for three days before. They are shareable plates, but enough to share for 4 people, let alone a couple. Outstanding taste and always enjoy a dinner here.

Waitress could of been more attentive. Our party of four had the lobster special and when it arrived, she was not around to assist on the serving. The lobster special was served with pasta, shrimp but NO Lobster tails??

Excellent food and service. Great portions and you really have to be careful not to over order. Portions are huge. David did a very nice job waiting on us also. We enjoyed it very much.

Waited 90 minutes for a table with a previously booked reservation. They took name and number and said they will call us when it was ready...no call ever came.
No explanation..no apologies
Went back to see whats going on..the hostess was impolite and useless.
Finally got a table and the food..barely enough chicken for 4 people in a “family style restaurant”.
Everything was way too garlicky.
Wouldn’t go back to this particular Carmines.
Total disappointment. Went out of our way to go there and regretted it from the start!

Terrible communication from the host and manager regarding our 8:00 reservation. Utter confusion, sat us at 9:45, food was good but again go with a back up plan if you are hungry or have plans, couldn’t care less about your actual reservation tine.

Everything food wise was good when we finally got our food. We were seated by 7:10pm, we ordered and got our salad and drinks pretty quickly. Then after asking our server and the manager where our food was, we received the rest of our food 2 hours later.

They did compensate us with a round of drinks, and they comped the food. It wasn’t the servers fault, it was some sort of situation in the kitchen, so we paid what we owed for our drinks, tipped our server, and were on our way.


All in all I understand it was busy, but to wait 2 hours for food, especially when we had other things planned that night for my friends bachelor party was highly unacceptable.

Needless to say we had a bad experience.

Aside from being seated an hour after our reservation time, it took forever to get our food and they forgot one of our orders. They were apologetic, which was nice, and offered to bring our order out at no charge but by that time we had waited too long so we passed. We understand that these things happen but for a restaurant that deals with high volumes on the weekends this should not have happened.

We were a party bachelor party of 10 and we were seated right on time. From the minute we sat down our Waiter Dom got the vibe of the table and made us laugh and fell at home. The guys still can't stop talking about the food. If I remember correctly it was an 8lb. Porterhouse with 6 lbs. of chicken with sausage and potatoes... SO DELICIOUS! Not to mention the appetizers Calamari, Mozzarella and Tomatoes. I have been to the Carmines in Manhattan and now the Atlantic City location, great experience, great food.

The portions seem to be getting smaller and prices keep going up. Specials should be listed with prices. The special I ordered was over 50 that is information I should have prior to ordering.

The portion sizes were unbelievable. We ordered the artichoke (2 per order) and the double cut pork chop special. It was enough for us to eat that night and have enough leftovers for an entire meal. Luckily, we had a cooler in the car because the leftover container was a half chaffing pan which would not fit in the hotel refrigerator.

Although the food was very good .. the food was way too much for 2 people .. family style is not the way to go .. smaller portions should be made available to smaller parties...

There was a large party of men chanting JETS and screaming and whistling. Very disturbing and inappropriate but the management handled it as best they could. They were overly attentive and continuously came to make sure our evening was going well. The food was excellent!

We were there to celebrate my 65 birthday. The food was excellent. My husband said it was the best steak he's ever eaten. Our waiter was awesome and the people sitting next to us engaged us in conversation. So all in all it was a perfect celebrating. Hoping to visit the one in New York over tbe Christmas holiday.

Having been to the Carmine's restaurants in NYC, we knew what to expect but this one actually exceeded our exceptions. Pasta with chunky tomatoes and Chicken Scarpiello were terrific.

Love the food although some were a little bit saltier to my taste. Penne Vodka was delicious. Servings were huge so be careful ordering too many dishes. We ended up bringing the leftovers home which was perfectly fine.

The waitress was very friendly but the food was disappointing. We ordered the veal with lemon and butter and added pasta with it. The dish was so dry and not a lot of veal. The waitress did try to get us more sauce but by the time it came everything was cold.

Evert year a group of friends get together at the end of the Summer for a great dine and Carmine's never disappoints. This year we got there early and figured we would have to wait but it was not a problem and we were seated. The staff was great, the food was served hot and the portions were outstanding. We are already planning our next trip to Atlantic City and to Carmine's..
