The sashimi combo dinner plate was lacking in size for $35.00. The salmon was tasty but a small salad included might have made for a more complete meal. I guess this is the 'price' you pay for using a Groupon.

Tried it out for happy hour first. Great waterfront view and open windows in the bar, you're right next to the boats. All good, and nice HH menu. Unfortunately the raw oysters gave me a little GI distress; I noticed they were different (not blue points) than the dinner menu.

Went back with friends and had dinner at the bar. I had sashimi, they had cooked fish which was delicious. Recommendation: let the customer choose which sashimi fish is ordered; their policy is the chef chooses, and I got one I dislike.

I was so pleasantly surprised. The sushi was amazing, clams on the half shell fresh and served nice and cold on ice. Our server was especially wonderful, friendly and accommodating. We loved it and we will be back!!! The only drawback is the traffic and parking within the Carmine's Market area. That was a horrendous experience and will keep us from coming as often as we'd like.

This was the worst dining experience we have had in a restaurant this far. It started with the server who was rude and discourteous. He needs a lesson in hospitality. The food was absolutely horrible potatoes tasted like instant from the box the fish was dry and tasteless. The specials were not available because we were told they ran out. This was at 7pm on a Saturday evening!
Only positive was the happy hour good prices and good happy hour menu at the. At.

It’s rather confusing since there is also a Carmines Trattoria next door. Our friends were waiting at the wrong restaurant but with the help of cell phones we found each other and had a delightful dinner on the terrace overlooking the marina. The crusty grouper was fantastic. We will return.

We enjoy dining here and do so frequently. The proprietor is a hands-on guy and goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy. The sushi boat is one of our favorites...one of the best places in town to get sushi.

A very good menu and a great ambience in the harbor. Unfortunately, our server disappeared at end of the evening, leaving us waiting to get a check. One of his fellow servers finally stepped in to close us out. Likely a one time occurrence. I'd try it again.

The service was not great. People arrived after us and were served first. When asking for something it took a long time to get it. Like a steak knife to cut our meal. Drinks took forever and it was not very busy. Food was good. The table was not even set when we sat down.

The service was so below par that it was hard to rate this restaurant other than fair. It wasn’t crowded and we couldn’t imagine if it was. They didn’t have the tuna entree, said they were out of it, we were there at 6:00pm??? Really!! We ordered a bottle of wine, they didn’t have that either, ordered something else, waiter never came back and refilled our glasses, food was mediocre and by the time our friend finally got a steak knife, all our food was cold. Beautiful view as we sat outside.

We had a Groupon so tried out Carmine's Ocean Grill. Our waitress was very friendly and we enjoyed joking a bit with her. My boyfriend and I both had salads which were very tasty and the bread was served warm which is always the best. My boyfriend got the Dover Sole which was deboned at our table (a new experience for us). We learned all about Dover Sole from the deboning guy. Very interesting and the fish was very good. I had the special - a seafood pasta with vodka sauce which was chock full of seafood. I took half of it home with me. Overall the food is very good although pricey. I had one beer and my boyfriend had water. With a $50 Groupon knocked off, the bill plus tip was still almost $90 so check for Groupons before you do like we did and enjoy!

 (Memphis)·Dined on October 21, 2017

Based on past reviews and local reviews, we were excited to spend a night out for dinner at Carmines Ocean Grill. We were very disappointed in both the attentiveness of the server as well as the kitchen who managed to ruin a boullabaise seafood dish by completely over cooking the shrimp and fish. The only things that saved this restaurant were the drinks and the very attentive manager who apologized for the less than stellar service. We are willing to give this restaurant another shot as this was our first time here, but if our experience is the same as the first time, it will be the last.

It was our first time dining experience at Carmine’s Ocean Grill and Sushi. We will definitely be back. The menu is extensive and can appeal to all diners. The sushi was of high quality and delicious. The sesame tuna entree was prepared perfectly. The seafood bouillabaisse was excellent. The wait staff was attentive and very friendly.

My wife and i went here for dinner. The first table at which we were seated had a smell of someone getting sick. When we inquired, they said there was a party there the previous night. They accommodated a move without issue, but you would think a place of this size and price point would have cleaned things up before the following day. Dinner itself was very good.
