Our server Abraham was nice, friendly and knowledgeable. My Lasagna was so good and filling. My drink, a Citizen Kane was outstanding!
WONDERFUL! Even dining outside in 46 degrees!! Carmine’s space heaters work really well. (It was so toasty that I had to take my coat off, and put my phone away so it wouldn’t melt!) :-) We’ve had lunch and dinner there several times, but this was our first brunch. It was delicious! And as always, the service was great.
Service was lacking. Had to ask for a napkin as well as utensils. Waitress seemed distracted as I had to ask for a coke refill 3 times.
Top notch service!
Food was great!!! Me and my husband enjoyed the Fettuccine. The con was our waiter as he noticed us waiting a while and didn’t bother to introduce hisself, he barely checked on us and when he brung the check he waited for us to sign and leave a tip. When he noticed his tip size he questioned us as if he deserved a larger amount if any. My advice is thoroughly train wait staff as we took it ok but most people wouldn’t.
Wait staff great. Portion size was huge. Could have split an entree easily.
Food and service are outstanding. Staff is as friendly as any in the Rush Street area so always a pleasure going there.
Eaten here several times, each time seems to be less tasty. Atmosphere is nice and service is great.
A Rush Street staple, great staff and excellent food!
Carmines never disappoints! The food was delicious, the atmosphere is amazing and the staff is very welcoming
Wonderful eggplant appetizer large enough as an entree! Chicken Vesuvio was tasty. Outside seating by the heater was nice too!
Someone took our order for baked clams . Had to wait order 40 plus minutes before waiter noticed. Horrible experience .
The server was wonderful!! The food as always was delicious! Will always go back :)
They were extremely busy the noise level was extreme with the road traffic! Waiter was not to friendly and we continually had to ask for items and refills.
Ceasar, our waiter was great. Good knowledge of the menu and attentive
The grilled octopus was incredible! I highly recommend Carmines for a dinner date night!
Carmines is the best. Our server was awesome, the food was delicious, wine glasses were never empty. When we asked for affogato which wasn't on the menu our server made them for us, so so nice. I will keep coming back here over and over.
Goldie, our server was awesome! She added to the experience of wonderful food and great atmosphere
The food was great. Heating lamps maddest comfortable on a cold October day
The ambiance, as usual was outstanding
Great service and food. They have both fully outside seating as well as a covered area that has heaters but is open so good airflow. Great choice these days.
Excellent service, food, all around great experience. Nick L was professional through entire thing. Totally made the experience worth every minute.
Great location, would prefer Tavern as I dine there more often.
Carmines isn't what it used to be....smaller portions, no fresh French bread, mass manufactured. Used to have the best calamari in town but this time was overcooked and chewy.
Great dinner, wonderful service...one of my favorites
never disappointed with the food, but, we didn't have the best waiter
Great customer service by Kenny and Caesar! Attentive and very friendly! Their knowledge of the menu was amazing and they recommended some wonderful wines and cocktails.
Love the food and the service and vibe are always just right!
So amazing, every. bite.
I come here every night I’m in town. Friday night’s dinner was great but the food on Saturday night was served cold. They tried to correct it by remaking a new dish, which was delicious. The manager stopped by but never really apologized and I was shocked to see that they removed the item as poor quality but added it back to the bill as another line item. I would never expect cold, old food to be served to a table at this place. I was very disappointed with this experience.
Great food and great service! Definitely try the veal parmesan, it won’t disappoint l.
I love coming to this restaurant. Since I live in the Gold Coast, this restaurant is like an everyday place too got for dinner, lunch or just drinks.
Carmine’s never disappoints. The ambiance is unbeatable in the city, the food is consistently good, always serving up interesting and unique specials. I’ve been there so many times and never ordered the same thing and can say it’s all been a 10/10!
Our dinner was phenomenal and the portions were huge! We will definitely be back!
Great service and love the neighborhood ambience. Brick chicken still fab but the fried calamari, which use to be the best, was not good- very rubbery
Great food. Service was a little slow....but we still loved it.
Didn’t serve brunch at 11am in the morning. Only served from the dinner menu. We left.
Excellent food, great location, great service! Perfect for first date or for gathering with friends.
Fun to be out! Great vibe love our city! Felt safe as well!
