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.

I would say overall the food was overrated. No issues with service or experience, but if you’re charging top dollar for the food it should be worth top dollar. There are significantly better options in this area and I’ll be going there.

We’ve been there several times and last night was awful. Had to send our steak back not once but 2 times to only get a 3rd time wrong. Didn’t have the heart to send it back again. My pasta was hardly cooked. Not even Aldente. More undercooked.

The service was good but it was hot in the restaurant and one of the worst fine dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. One would think that if you send back a steak 2 times they would remove it from your bill!!! No!

It’s to bad because we live not to far from there and enjoy going there quite often. We won’t be going back anytime soon.
