From the wine and phenomenal appetizer through the perfect steaks and on to the delectable dessert, this is without a doubt, the best of St. Louis.

I made a reservation for my husband’s birthday dinner. What a great experience! The food was amazing and the service was perfect. Our waiter, Gary I believe, took great care of us. We had cocktails, a crab cake appetizer, the filet mignon special with crab, and a lovely birthday dessert. A wonderful meal for our special occasion! I highly recommend Carmine’s!

Carmine's is hands down the best place for a steak in downtown STL. The service is spectacular and the food is top-notch. If you are in town and looking for a great experience this is where you need to go.

Decided to try a steak place on a short weekend visit to St. Louis. Carmine's was good, but it wasn't great. Made a reservation and noted there were several available. When we showed up, the main dining room was half full. We were led to the very back of the restaurant that appeared to be used for overflow and special events with a big screen on the wall. Unlike the front part of the restaurant, the walls were a very dark grey. The room completely lacked ambiance. I have no idea why we were led back there especially since the front of the restaurant never filled up. I should have asked to move, but decided not to be difficult. We would have actually waited at the bar even if it meant eating later just to not have to sit in the back room.

The food was good but for the price of the steak, I expected better. I had the bone-in rib-eye and the sauce was tasty, but the steak itself was average. My wife had crab cakes that were underwhelming in taste as well. We had a red velvet cake for desert and the cake didn't taste very fresh.

The service was excellent. Our waiter was truly attentive. He did a great job of taking care of us, while not interrupting at awkward times. I left a great tip because he sincerely deserved it.

Carmine's (part of the Lombardo's family of restaurants) has the best toasted ravioli in St. Louis, so that is always the go-to appetizer. While I normally enjoy a pepperloin, tonight it was the special halibut. The fish was excellent. And, although our server was new, he did a great job.

The evening was wonderful from the appetizer to the dessert. Carmine's still makes their own toasted ravioli and it is awesome. Salads and sides were terrific. Steak was flavorful and perfectly prepared. Dessert stand-bys of creme brulee and cheesecake were a sweet finale. Service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is relaxed elegance and quiet enough to actually have a conversation. We will definitely be back!

One medium well and one well done. They were cooked perfectly to our liking! Desert options were shown on a platter and we chose the gooey butter cake.
