Classic Italian with an imaginative flair and fresh, locally sourced items. The attention to detail is lovely and the staff always paces the meal to your needs.
Maria & her two (2) son's continue to lead by example!
Awesome - always the best service - super friendly and attentive.
We went to Carmine's for a 7:15 p.m. reservation for Mother's Day. If it had been the first time we were there, we would never go back. The server was slow, the kitchen was slow and the food wasn't good.
The food is amazing and first class in service we have a wonderful time .
As my Italian Mother would have said..."Buonissimo"...we will return again and again
Great place good food delightful staff
Our evening was lovely until near the end of dinner we felt a bit of urgency (from management/servers) for our table. In the past, we have chosen this restaurant for its wonderful service, the ultimate white-linen experience. But last night was a first for us...at any restaurantI We’ve never been offered a drink on the house when we are exiting the restaurant. Though we ordered a large amount of food and drinks for four, it was made obvious to us that they wanted us out so they could seat others. Still in shock over that one...obvious they knew we knew of their rude behavior. There are too many lovely fine dining restaurants in our area...!
Food was excellent - Service was little 'slow' at times. Valet Parking is on street corner & not obvious to find.
I would return to this restaurant but it wont be top of my 'must return' list.
Food is always good
Great food + Great service = Happy Customers. We've never been disappointed with anything we've had at Carmines. The bread is unforgettable. This is a special place.
We have been to Carmine’s several times and it has not only been extremely consistent in its quality of food but they Seem to pride themselves on making you feel like family. (In a great way😉) we live it and will be back!
I’m an Italian boy from NYC and picky about my Italian food. The food here was excellent, authentic, and fresh. Relaxed but sophisticated atmosphere. Real nice dining experience. Will be returning.
This restaurant is one of the best in Bellevue! Great service and food!
Good service. Restaurant is pretty new and looks nice. Food is decent, on par with the price range.
Great dining for ambiance and good service. It feels like a garden in the park
Excellent food and service. Great experience!
Carmine's is simply the best Italian Restaurant I have ever tried and I have been to quite a few. The cuisine is incredible the dishes are all uniformly delicious. The chefs have been to Italy and have a first hand knowledge of their cuisine. This restaurant is for anyone who loves great Italian food, coupled with exceptional service. You will not be disappointed.
Carmines was great but I can't find any restaurant that takes your open table gift card. Can we get a refund?
A wonderful and delicious meal served by a perfect server, Paulo...could not have asked for anything more...will return many times.
This was her first visit. We had osso buco and linguine vongole. The osso buco was very tender, a generous peace and came with wonderful homemade pasta and vegetables. My company, who ordered the linguine, commented that his was very good but in that it was a very simple dish it wasn't outstanding . We weren't exceptionally hungry so we did not have soup salad or appetizers. They have a decent wine selection by the glass. The restaurant is bright and spacious and much of it overlooks Bellevue downtown park. They have a nice-sized terrace as well. The only negative for us where it was very busy and as a result the service was quite on the slow side. On the other hand, when our waiter like kept us waiting a little too long for our wine, he showed up with two glasses halfway through our meal as an apology.
Food was amazing as always. Our waiter was a little distracted and service was a little stalled due to that. Otherwise we will definitely be back.
Fine dining at it's best - impeccable service, authentic cuisine & attention to detail.
We were at Carmine’s for a 50th birthday lunch. The service, staff and entrees were fabulous. I would highly recommend it.
Beautiful, elegant, and delicious. I could go on and on with this list. A well-rounded wine list and a fresh sheet to die for, this is the best place I've been in Bellevue for fine dining. The talented staff make you feel welcome and cared for without hovering. Pasta your mom would approve of and sauces that make you feel decadent and naughty. Carmine's will definitely now be at the top of our list of special dinner spots!
We have been dining at Carmine's for several years. The Bellevue location is great for us. Great food and service.
we felt it was really noisy for a Friday night, and the food was just so-so. Not up to the usual standard. Seafood ravioli was fishy tasting and the veal was a little on the cold side. Our antipasto plate was delicious and consistently one of my favorites, also the gnocchi was perfect. Service was outstanding. We like Carmine's though and will try again.
I love the ambiance. Only request would be for more options without veal.
Excellent service and cuisine !
The food and service were great! Highly recommend the eggplant Parmesan.
Food, atmosphere, server, everything was excellent. They made the whole evening perfect!
Food and service were wonderful and by that I mean personalized to our needs.
Best meal I've had in a while! Server was extremely helpful and wonderful. It's my mum's birthday today and we all had a great time celebrating it there. Thank you Carmine's! ♥️ Would highly recommend if you're willing to spend a little more money for some good food.
Fabulous date night!
Consistently good food, prepared and presented well, in a comfortable atmosphere. Friendly service. One of our favorite places to dine with friends.
Delicious food and fabulous ambiance! Look forward to dining again.
Good traditional Italian food prepared with good ingredients and seasoned well, priced appropriately.
Beware, the wine list is e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e, and the corkage punitive and outrageous! $25 for the first bottle and $35 for the second!!! There are 1-2 low end wines at $48, and everything else is way up from there. It’s still better to take your own if you’re only going to drink 1 bottle.
Note to owners: lower the corkage to $15-20, and stop trying to pay the rent off your wine sales.
At Carmine's the food is outstanding! Best lamb I have tasted.
Love the antipasto platter. Order it every time and could just have that with a glass of wine and be totally satisfied. Service, wine selection is just excellent. So glad you've come to the Eastside!
