Nothing special at all and over priced for the service and food. On a good note the baked potato was good but how could that be bad.

Carmines never disappoints, from the well trained staff to the perfected cocktails to the food that is always prepared to perfection. This will always be our go to date night location.

My friends and I were visiting from Ohio, we chose to eat at Carmine’s and if you travel to STL do yourself a favor and go here! The staff was BEYOND hospitable and welcoming. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and even provided us info about things to do in STL while we visited. I cannot recommend this place enough, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was wonderful. Will definitely go back when we visit again!

We stumbled across Carmines about 3 or 4 years ago when we were in town, ironically it was our 25th wedding anniversary. We were walk-ins and we were accommodated in the bar due to not having a reservation. The meal was great the service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Several years later, this trip, we were dropping our daughter off at law school in St. Louis and she wanted to go out for steak. My mouth was watering. We promptly made a reservation via Open Table and drove to Carmines, This time the restaurant wasn't as full as last time but the service, food and staff was just as good as our previous visit. Carmines is our go-to restaurant in St. Louis.

Met a friend in St Louis and wanted to dine at an upscale restaurant, after viewing several options in the downtown vicinity we picked Carmines. It was a great choice because the food was excellent, atmosphere was great and the service was friendly but professional. I would definitely dine there again if I ever visit St Louis again.

We felt excited for a long awaited steak dinner date night; after reading reviews for several steakhouses, we chose Carmine’s. Upon walking in we immediately regretted that decision. The smell was terrible- to us it brought memories of sour/used cat litter. We should have walked out then but we decided it may just be a combination of rich cheese and seafood. Our steaks were not cooked how we ordered them and had to send one back. As a result, the manager brought us out a free additional baked potato but we already had two half eaten ones on our table. Whatever oil/butter concoction they use to baste/top the steak was also not our favorite... had a bitter taste and may have even been the cause of the sour smell upon entry. My suggestion is to give somewhere else a try for this amount of money.

Service was great. Food was insanely overpriced for what you get. The steaks were good...not great. The toasted ravioli were a HUGE disappointment. Twice baked potato was my favorite part of the meal. After tip, it was $177..which in my opinion, was WAY too much for the food to just be okay. Carnivore on the Hill is way better and much better priced. We won’t be back unfortunately.

The experience at Carmines was wonderful. The server was pleasant, made some nice recommendations, provided a nice tempo to the entire dinner and was there when needed. But the FOOD was fantastic! Taste the home made toasted ravioli! I enjoyed the Spinaci Scallop dinner of some very tender scallops with a nice sauce. We also had a NY Strip steak cooked to perfection and the meat could be cut with a butter knife. Salads were wonderful as well. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner!

Great food. Ordered the 20oz Bone-in ribeye medium rare. Steak was cooked beautifully with a perfect layer of charring. Steak was juicy and flavorful. The potatoes were irresistible and my date could not get enough of them. She ordered the chicken and was blown away by the succulent flavor and tenderness if.

Drinks were spot on and I highly recommend the Kentucky Mule.

Now as for dessert, on top of the phenomenal entrees, Carmines does dessert really well. I ordered the tiramisu and instantly became a fan. Seriously, this place exceeded all of our expectations and then some. From the friendly staff and timeliness of our seating to the server who had an appropriate level of humor and class to just the meal experience, this place will forever be a high recommendation in my book.

Excellent food as always. Promptly seated with our reservation. Service seemed lacking understanding that it was Valentine's Day I know they were busy our server seemed less than attentive. No bread plates on our table then several trips past our table before he apologetically finally brought our bread. Drinks refills were slow also

We had a business dinner for 6 people. 4 of us have been to Carmines regularly or at least on several occasions but the other two were visiting for the first time. Carmines is always a great experience with wonderful food and excellent service. This visit was no exception. The steaks and seafood were prepared perfectly. Charles and Sam were our servers and did an outstanding job taking care of our every need.

Highly recommended as a great downtown St. Louis steakhouse option!
