Table side service was very good but the food was cold by the time we received our plates. To do table side service, family style, with a group, the food had to be horror when it came out and there has to be a way to keep the food warm at table side.

Very over priced for decent pasta and salad. Served family style and placed on individual plates be server. I would rather control my own portion size. Told our beer would be complimentary due to slow service but charge appeared on our bill. Very loud inside and probably would have been better to sit outside with views of McGregor Square. Excited to try something new in the neighborhood but will get our Italian fix at better places nearby.

Waiter was rude and critical of my choice of wine
Didn’t bring bread after we asked several times
No butter either when asked
Would not go back
Waited 35 minutes for dessert which told him by then no thanks

Horrible. Rushed us through our time. Horrible wine and the menu was a laminated menu with no description of the entrees. Not a good experience. Would never return.

Went for our anniversary dinner. Very nice place, modern, with amazing art and a great view of McGregor Square plaza. Our server was very informal for the place, mentioning that she’s glad she finally got a table, and was considering going to the bar next door and taking some shots. This was within the first minute of her greeting us. Pear salad was amazing, but the gnocchi and chicken park were very bland.

Great service by Brittany and other waitstaff. Very loud due to a few large parties but we still had a great time with our small group. Food was excellent as always and thanks for the extra boxing of leftovers for us to take home. First time to this location after over 20 years of going to Penn Street location and we’ll definitely be back. Thank you

The atmosphere, food, and service were wonderful! Highly recommend the Ragu Con Funghi - it was incredible! Be prepared to ask lots of questions, as the menu doesn't include descriptions of the items and a lot of the items aren't self-explanatory, so it was a good thing we had a wonderful server :) We will definitely be back.

Decor was beautiful. We don't know who they are marketing to? I wanted a single meal and was told no. My friends were allergic to garlic and the waitress offered only buttered noodles as an alternative. She had a grating voice that was like chalk on a blackboard. We left because there was nothing we could eat mutually. Need to change your business model to survive. Beautiful location. Disappointing, very disappointing.

What was nice is they had a sippy cup available for the baby. We wanted to be outside as to not disturb other diners. I was surprised that there was not an awning or umbrella to shield us from the sun. Server seemed apprehensive and while he corrected his mistake before the food came out I was surprised he didn’t know how a couple of dishes are prepared. The ravioli was for two people but only got 8 raviolis which I thought for the price was too few

Carmines was fun and the food pretty good- only complaint is it began to rain, there was little protection in the form of umbrellas, etc. A lot of tables were empty inside and pledged to others who must not have shown.

Carmine's is Carmine's no matter which location. Delicious food, great portions and a large selection. Our server was amazing. We went on an off night for the Rockies so, not sure if that location gets louder with more people attending but, it was a really lovely experience.

I've been to Carmine's McGregor Sq twice - once in mid-July for a work meeting and last night for a family birthday. Last night's experience was not as good as the first time around. Maybe it was an 'off' night.

Examples: We ordered a side of sausage for the table. It did not arrive with our other family-style entrees. They eventually brought the it, but the sausage was cold inside. We sent it back because by then, we were more than half-way through dinner. We also asked for a few more rolls to have with our entrees. The rolls that arrived were not fully baked inside. The check came with the sausage side still included. Our server removed it, but we shouldn't have had to request it.

Overall, just a mediocre meal.
