Carmines is one of those restaurants that you know will always deliver. Impeccable service, outstanding food-no other place I'd rather go to for great Italian food-even better than places we've been to in Boston's North End.
Super good food and good service
Great food and service
We like entertaining guests over dinner at Carmine’s, but only if we can have a four-top in the bar. So, when I made early 5pm reservations on Open Table, I wrote “In the bar, please!” I got the two normal confirmation texts/emails. And, as requested, we were seated in the bar. We ordered cocktails, appetizers, wine, salads, and our main courses. Then, at around 7 pm, when our waiter delivered our dessert/after-dinner-drink menus, he apologized saying the hostess had promised our table to another group and they had been waiting for a half hour. So we would need to be moved up to the bar stools. With four of us, that made it all weird; so we and our guests just decided to give our waiter a great tip and leave. On the way out, I asked what happened and the manager said we had made our bar-table request on Open Table and the others had “called it in,” so they had priority. He offered us a gift certificate but we really didn’t want it. At this point, I’m not sure whether we will go back to Carmine’s despite their great food.
Best Italian cuisine and dining experience in all of Seattle/Bellevue. Perfectly executed atmosphere and beyond amazing food. Highly recommended.
Awesome dinner, excellent service, friendly atmosphere.....could not ask for more!
The food was excellent. The ;portions are very good. Our table was ready right on time and we never felt rushed. I will definitely recommend Carmines to our friends. A drive star restaurant in every way.
Great food, and absolutely impeccable, attentive service. It made for a lovely evening out with friends.
It's a big menu, with lots of fish/meat options, and not so many veg options. But the server was very helpful to make suggestions for a substantial vegetarian meal, and accommodate any dietary preferences including substituting gluten free pasta, if needed.
Carmine's never disappoints. The service and food are always wonderful. The noise level is pretty high so don't expect quiet conversation.
The service was beyond reproach, friendly, helpful without overbearing. The wait between courses was a bit long. Will definitely be back.
Great people there, first time and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Carmine's is always one of the best options in Bellevue.
Beautiful decor, impeccable service, and excellent food! What more could you ask for? Definitely a top choice for anyone looking for a fine dining choice in Bellevue.
Great atmosphere, food and service! I'm a repeat customer because the service and food are always good and on point.
Excellent Food & Service as always!
I always love Carmine’s! The dining room is very noisy though which is why I prefer the lounge.
Carmine’s is legit! Great family restaurant in best part of Bellevue.
Ossobucco and Venison ravioli were out of this world! Bread was so good!!!! Noise level in main dining was a bit much but when I asked they moved us to a lovely quiet table in the lounge. You simply must go!!
Didn’t know that BELLEVUE had such a gem tucked away. Beautiful restaurant with great service and delicious food. Only hiccup was that we choose one of the special entrees, the sea bass and were shocked at the $45 price tag. Very expensive lunch. I guess it’s tricky to rattle off the specials without mentioning prices. Seems a bit tacky to do so but then again, getting charged so much for one dish unexpectedly is a hit.
Lovely. Reminds me of the charm of the Seattle restaurant. Tonight's tiramisu was the best and so was the fried calamari!
My husband and I tried it out on Valentine's Day and it was fabulous. The food was excellent. The service was impeccable. We were tucked away in a corner so the noise level was low too. There were so many things on the menu that I wanted to try, I can't wait to go back!
Absolutely wonderful--can't wait to go back! The food is magnificent, and the service is great.
Beautiful setting and ambiance. Pretty upscale dining experience. The prices are in the higher end. Our server is very attentive. Overall a great experience.
Excited to go back soon. Delicious food, I’m pretty picky about Italian but it was superb. Great atmosphere and service.
Carmine’s has been my go to restaurant for lunches, date night and girls night out from its opening. It’s a beautiful restaurant and the service a usually ok. Unfortunately, over the past couple years with the increase of the number of guest dinning the quality of the food has suffered. You can expect for the fish to be over cooked and the beautiful squid ink past to be almost the texture of mashed potatoes. The Risotto looks and taste like a big glob of overCooked rice. So disappointed, thankfully Bellevue has new restaurants popping up everyday.
The service and the food were at the top end of amazing. We will be back!
