Chicken park was undercooked I’m center, awesome Caesar salad.
Not that great, long time to get water or order anything from the server
Worst service I have ever had. Truly terrible, and management did not care. Would never return.
Amazing place to eat!! Great real Italian food!!! Great atmosphere!!
Food quality was trash they give you a lot but the taste is not worth the price
Our birthday gathering was awesome! We had reservations and only waited a few minutes to get seated. Craig was our server and he did an excellent job. The food was great as usual! We had 5 people and ordered one salad and two entrees- more than enough with leftovers!
Carmines is a delicious place to eat! I highly recommend it! I’ve eaten there several times and have never had a bad meal!!
We made a reservation through OpenTable and confirmed it the day before. But when we arrived, they could not find our reservation. We were still seated but we had to wait a while as they tried to find our reservation. When our fried zucchini appetizer came out, we were wowed. But looks can be deceiving. It was a huge portion, but not of zucchini. There were tiny threads of zucchini covered with an abundance of breading. So basically, we ate a lot of breading but very little zucchini. The eggplant and ragu were also large portions, but we should not see liquid on the plate. The sauce should be thick enough that the plate is covered in sauce, not red liquid. The drinks were fine as was the tartufo dessert.
We had a great experience at this restaurant. Would highly recommended to anyone looking for good Italian food.
If only two people are eating only order one meal it family style the portions are huge but delicious
Very generous servings of large platters to share feeding at least 3 to 4 people in most cases. Chicken Parm was delicious as well as Veal Marsala. Ended with a huge pie plate dish of tiramisu which was delicious!
Staff was very friendly, attentive and eager to assist. We ordered the lasagna, it was too dry, but we settled and had taken the extra home to add more sauce.
Absolutely amazing meal! So glad we made time to visit. Will be back every time we return to DC.
I’ve eaten at other Carmine’s in NYC & Atlantic City - the appetizers & salad were great. The chicken parmigiana was rubbery. Great service
Huge portions but absolutely delicious.
Food was good and drinks . Very authentic Italian Food! Our server was forgetful at times but not bad. Great experience as usual, I have been coming here for 10 years atleast.
The family sized meals barely fed 4 and food wasn’t at all tasty. Bland sauces, undercooked pasta and overall under whelming!
Wonderful! Way better than the Carmines in Las Vegas!
Carmine’s never disappoints! The food was hot and fresh, the staff friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable!
The entrees are enough for a party of 6 people. The employees are pleasant!
We love Carime's, always a great experience. Wonderful
Hostesses we’re efficient and hospitable. Norman, our server, was the best! Great suggestions.
Great food portions and tasty, wine was great and the overall services I give a 10/10
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner here. We were extremely pleased to book a same hour reservation. The line of people waiting to be seated was proof enough for us.
Fried zucchini was extremely salty.
Chocolate canneolli’s tasted as though they had been sitting in a refrigerator too long.
Food was fantastic and service was perfect! Very pricey but portions are huge.
delicious food, great service, generous portions. great spot for a hungry family visiting DC! highly recommend.
Amazing as always..
I truly enjoyed my experience. The food was delicious and fresh. The portions were family style and large enough for 3 or 4 people share. Lastly, our cocktails were well made and the service was outstanding.
The absolute best food I've ever had. Go here when you're in D.C.
Nice restaurant, good food, big portions (because they are a family restaurant they say) so don’t order too much!
Delicious food. Family style, generous portions. Excellent service.
Family style but the food was amazing. Huge portions. Delicious. Come hungry.
The staff were friendly and the food, as always m, was good!
Perfection!! We celebrated our 15 year Anniversary and everything we ordered was delicious! We had a window seat. Which was very romantic! This was my second time eating at Carmine's and I'm still impressed!!
I was very disappointed that the kitchen was completely out of the Chicken Contadina and it was only 7pm. But we settled with the wings and the Shrimp paste /w Vodka Sauce. I say settled loosely because it was really good, but I was showing someone some of the best restaurants in the area and I hyped up the Chicken Contadina only to find out that the restaurant was completed sold out early in the dinner hour.
The food was good, but typical Italian food. I did not like that you order entrees, but the noodles are separate. When the noodles arrived they were plain, no seasoning, and they looked and tasted like they were simply boiled and served.
We liked the family style ambiance but as we were a couple and the portions were way to large. A single appetizer could feed 6 people. The tomatoes in the caprese salad reminded me of grocery store tomatoes in January. We were there mid September and our farmers markets are still stocked with delicious tomatoes. Far too much breading on the calamari I could only eat a few. IMO not a good value. The price to quality definitely didn’t measure up.
My friend and I had a great meal last night. It was enhanced by the excellent service of our waiter Rob.
Lovely restaurant, healthy portions, great service. Come with a few friends so you can try more food, each entree easily serves two!
