I understand it was a little after 9 when we arrived. I get it. It was late in the shift. An hour before close. I get it. But... tell us you have a limited menu. Tell us the steak we ordered you are out of. Tell us it’s going to be an extended wait time. We would have gladly ordered something else or simply had a drink and appetizer, then left. Don’t make us wait until 10:30 to bring the steaks out. Don’t give us some lame excuse about the manager left early and there’s nothing you can do about the poor service. We paid the $200 tab with a 20% tip, and went on our way. I won’t go back.

I ordered the sea bass special ($46) and it was less than fresh...very fishy tasting and barely took two bites. Server didn’t offer anything else or offer to take it off the bill.

Was a business traveler dining alone. They weren’t busy at all and it appeared that the waiter was preoccupied and not giving me the full service attention other tables were getting. Food was good, steak a little under, could have sent back but just wanted to eat and get back to hotel

The restaurant, meal, cocktails, service and valet were excellent, as always. Always friendly. The staff and owner remember you. Everyone is polite. The food is outstanding. We enjoyed dinner, then after-game cocktails. Steak was perfect - excellent flavor. The valet service, as well? Wow.

In from out of town and made a fantastic call by choosing Carmines! For starters, our server, Sabrina, was fantastic -- highly recommend you ask for her. Excellent drink menu; a cauliflower side dish special like nothing I've ever had before; perfectly cooked rib eye. All three of us who went give it a thumbs up.

Food was good. As soon as our server gathered that we were not going to get an appetizer or a salad, he became disinterested in us. Continued to serve our meal, but it was obvious he wasn’t thrilled to serve us.

Ordered the 24oz porterhouse. One of the worst steaks I have had. No flavor, not cook correctly, extremely tough/chewy meat. My server was great. Was only good thing about my experience there.

We had the choice of Carmine's or Ruth Chris while on vacation. We have a Ruth Chris locally so we chose Carmine's for something similar but new. We were disappointed. The quality of food did not match the value. The server was a bit toady to the point our children thought it was odd. After dinner, we didn't feel the urge to stay and enjoy dessert or have a drink. One and done for us.

Chose Carmine's based on the number of high ratings and I can't say that my experience matched the high ratings. The space itself is not very appealing. Was very much like you were in a hotel meeting space and not a highly rated steakhouse. The hostesses were very nice, but the check-in area is in a pretty inefficient part of the restaurant. If you are not the first or second people in line you have to wait outside and try to figure out when it's time to come in. Just not a very welcoming first impression.

The service overall was very good. Our waiter Charles was very attentive and checked back frequently to see how we were doing.

The best part of the meal were the steaks. They were done perfectly and were delicious. Also ordered creamed spinach which was good also. However, the appetizer we ordered (toasted ravioli) was extremely dry and just very average. The twice baked potatoes that all the reviews raved about were dry as well. We ordered the bearnaise sauce to go with the steaks and it was awful. Cold, clumpy and tasted like it had gone bad. Was also disappointed in the lack of wine selection by the glass. There was literally only one cabernet by the glass on the wine list. For a steakhouse, that just doesn't cut it. I really wanted to like this place, but it was just average at best.

Food was excellent! Service was terrible. Took 25 minutes to get our bar drinks. Server didn’t tell us any of the specials. Manager didn’t care that our service was poor.

We had an amazing dinner. This restaurant is classy and always far exceeds my expectations. We had an incredible server as well. Kevin is perfect for high experience dining and took our time to the next level. He impeccably paced the meal to keep us comfortable, not rushed and perfectly satisfied with our time. I have been to Carmine’s many times and am always satisfied. Thank you!!

This was our 3rd time eating here in the last 5-6 months and the food is always amazing. The lobster bites are phenomenal, the steaks are always prepared perfectly and their sides are top notch. My wife and I drive 2 hours just to eat at Carmines. We have eaten at many upscale steakhouses and this is by far our favorite. If given the opportunity, treat yourself to dinner at Carmines, you will be glad you did!!!

Carmines was an excellent dinning experience. The service was exceptional and the food was flavorful and prices were what we expected for the restaurant. Our children enjoyed their meals and were accepted in the restaurant.
