Food was delicious. My boyfriend ordered the veal tomahawk and absolutely loved it. I ordered the surf & turf with a side of shrimp which was beyond delicious. Great service

Server was good but overwhelmed. She could have been much more efficient if she wasn’t running back and forth for 1 item. She needed to touch a few tables every time she was in her section and she could have gotten in front of her business much better. She was to hurried.

The food was spectacular! Our server was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and quick. Very on the ball! The manager came to make sure all was well! The opportunity I see is improving the lighting in the back lot and employing a more friendly front desk/ hostess staff. The ladies were short, curt and unfriendly. They did not give us a good first impression. Definitely need some training in people skills since they were the first impression. I almost left. Glad I stayed though because the rest of the night was perfect.

The steaks need more flavor. It was a nice environment. However, when the server asked the host behind the bar to change the channel so I may watch the football game instead of the basketball game that was on the worker seemed annoyed when the server asked and she actually gave him the middle finger! Which I believed was very unprofessional!

First time here! Got seated and waitress came to get drinks orders. After drinks came it felt like she forgot about us because we were waiting for a while ready to order our food. Also wedge salad was not good. The salad wasn’t even a wedge and I felt they could do better for a fancy steakhouse. The mussel appetizer wasn’t very good either. Other than wait time and not the best apps the entrees were excellent!

The bar is so nice and drinks were absolutely perfect. Food was delicious and our server was extra nice and helpful. She suggested a to-go container for the leftover dessert so we could have it with our coffee the next day. Such a great restaurant!

We had a great meal at Carbones. The food was great and the service was fantastic. It was my sons first time at Carbones Prime and he was also very impressed. Always a good experience at Carbones.

The place looks great, but unfortunately the service is terribly slow. The food was so-so, nothing special about it. The dry-aged steak was tasteless.

So, the biggest downside was the service, from the host, all the way to the overall attention. Very slow! They will more people!

We had a reservation for 7:00 pm but had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. The food was okay although I had asked for very light spices or LESS and the meal I was served was too spicy to eat. The noise level is awful. We were unable to carry on a normal conversation. We will not go back.

First time dining here and what a great experience. Arrived for our 6:15 Saturday night reservation to a packed house. Bar was completely full with diners as well. Restaurant was well-staffed. We waited just a short time for our table. Server Zachary was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was timed perfectly and delicious. So pleased to have found this spot. Looking forward to our next visit. Definitely recommend reservations.

I didn’t think our server was very friendly or attentive. Perhaps a shortage of wait staff?

The place was very busy, which is a good thing. It seemed like they had enough employees, maybe too many, but the drinks took about 20 minutes to get even though we were right in the bar. The food was good but I think they put my daughters steak on my husbands plate and vise versa... Hers was under cooked and his over cooked. I had Chicken Parm, for an Italian restaurant and being Carbone's I thought it would be like the Hartford Carbone's but it was not, it was ok, but not great.

I would go back, its a hopping place and nice people just not the best last night and for the prices it should be better.

We ate in the outside seating, which was a nice setup. There was unfortunately only one waiter for the whole tent. Service was slow and lacked attention to detail (water refills, utensils, bread for the table at the beginning, didn’t tell us about the specials).

Salads and the short rib pizza were very good. The filet mignon came out mildly warm. It was clear that the plate had been sitting for some time in the kitchen before service, which was disappointing, given the price tag.

Desserts need a revamp. We had the “cannoli Napoleon” which fell short. The cookie tasted overly strong of liqueur. And the waffle sundae was just okay. Our cappuccinos were very good.

Overall, a disappointing meal for our anniversary and it was just ok / not great for what we were expecting of Carbone’s and for the price.
