Great atmosphere, average Italian food. We had the Chicken Parmesan and Ragu. Both were ordinary, nothing great. Portions were plentiful. We also tried the daily special, 32oz. Beef Tenderloin with gravy, mashed potatoes and spinach. This was very good but pricy. That platter alone was $96 dollars.

As always, eating at this restaurant means being treated like family! Our waiter "Jass" and Simon the manager ensured we had a wonderful meal and dining experience. The place was packed, but we never felt rushed or neglected. The food is always superb and did not disappoint! I highly recommend Carmine's to all my friends when they visit Atlantic City. The trip is not complete without a meal at this terrific restaurant!!

Outstanding! Truly! Came here with colleagues and was not disappointed. Firstly, our server was phenomenal. She was quick to attend to our needs and was extremely helpful in assisting us with ordering. The three dishes she recommended were all delicious, we had pasta with a wonderful meat sauce, lemon chicken and a shrimp pasta. The third dish was a bit underwhelming in just the very simple flavors, but it was by no means a disappointment. The three dishes, served family style, were perfect for our party of six. And after eating to more-than-fulfilled, coffees all around (though no additional drinks), our bill including tip came to $40 per person! Excellent!

Won't be going back... Came home with a sore throat from having to scream at the people who were sitting with me just to be heard. Sat in a very high traffic area... calamari was swimming in oil.

Ate at Carmine's in NYC last month & was so impressed when going to AC chose to take my family to dinner there. Disappointed - no menus on the table had to get up to read menus on wall - too noisy - salad & calamari was excellent but shrimp with angel hair pasta was dry, & chicken parm was paper thin,& dried out, & lacking seasoning. We skipped dessert because main meal was so bad. Will not eat at this venue again when visiting AC but would in NYC.

We made last minute reservations and had a nice dinner. The service and food were spot on. The pasta ragu was really good. Pasta with sausage, meatballs and beef Braciole. A little taste of 3 meats was a nice choice! Definitely getting that dish again!

The food and service was great but for 2 people they should offer half size dishes we were only able to have one dish as we would not be able to all those large portions, its best to go there with more than 2 people.

 (Baltimore)·Dined on December 1, 2017

Food was very good, but the portion was way too much. We even asked the waiter if two meals and a salad would be too much for three people. He said it was just the right amount. But it was still way too much. Would rather have gone to a more local and authentic restaurant. Felt very much like a chain restaurant.

My wife and I have been to Carmines in NY and Atlantic city many times and always enjoy the food and service, We were recently in Carmines in At;antic City , which is the restaurant we always go to. We order Carmines salad which we love and veal Parmesan. When received our order we had to ask for bread which we never had to do. And when we received our veal it was very tough and grizzled. We never had a bad meal at Carmines but this was not their best. Plus it was not a busy night!!!.. This critique is not to offend the Carmine Restaurant but to let them know it wasn't up to the standards we were used to when we had dinner there.

We had an early dinner so it wasn't as crowded as usual which was good, sometimes it gets very loud in Carmine's. The food was excellent and there was so much leftover that we have eaten it 2 times at home for dinner since going there. The only thing that we didn't like, was reading the menu off the wall which was hard to see for most of our dining companions. Our waiters were friendly, helpful and efficient. Looking forward to our next visit to Carmine's!
