Excellent as usual!!
Ambiance was perfect for fine dining. Food was superb. Drinks were excellent and consistent. Service was good but not up to the rest of the experience; waiters not knowledgeable and had to ask about specials after ordering. Will definitely go back. There are a few restaurants in the area that advertise fine dining but none deliver like Carmello's.
Javier did a marvelous job. All 3 of our meals were perfect. It was like having our own private dining room. I know you have been around for 20 plus years but how can you sustain it with so few patrons on a Monday night? I may be letting the cat out of the bag to let others know that it is such a treat to have such a lovely dining experience on a Monday with so few other patrons. Everyone should try dining here on a off night like Monday. Thanks again for such a lovely birthday dinner for my friend.
As always Carmello’s was absolutely wonderful. I have never been disappointed in this place! I always enjoy the entire experience. I highly recommend it
Made 8pm reservation, still had to wait 10+ min for them to seat us. Waited at least 15 min before our server came over. By the time he did, we gave our app and entrée order all at once. As a young couple we def felt overlooked among older couples and families that seemed to be getting more attention. It was almost like they gave our table away and scrambled to put us at a table but no one was assigned to us, so maybe no one knew who had us initially. (I worked in food service before) Food was tasty but for the price, we expected higher service at least, compared to other similar price point restaurants. Don't go if you are hungry or starving, go when you have lots of time. We weren't served entrees/app until after 9pm. This was for NYE.
Carmelo's proved to be a disappointing experience. The food was less than adequate and very, very expensive. The restaurant was dirty, food under our table and on the floor throughout the restaurant. As I walked to the rest room I slipped on a shrimp tail and saw other pieces of food and debris on the floor. The service was slow. We got our appetizer before we got our cocktails. I had to ask three people to fill my water glass. What a huge disappointment. If you want to spend the same amount of money and get a good meal go to Ruth's Chris or Morton's.
Not a bad restaurant . . . but a bit overpriced. The entrees were not bad, but the appetizer was lacking. However, the staff was flexible when I had to made a change in the reservation time, a major plus. The house Pino Noir was very good.
Outstanding service and the food was great. A perfect evening dinner
Great service, ambiance and food. We will definitely return
Excellent food prepared by a highly qualified chef. Great atmosphere with highly knowledgeable.
