From the minute we walked in, we were greeted and welcomed . The Gentleman at the desk even hung our coats. Our server, Marcy was prompt, professional , knowledgeable and efficient. It was a birthday lunch and we lingered for quite some time. Our water glasses were never empty and we never felt rushed. Food , drinks, service - Outstanding! Can’t wait to go back with the Hubby!

Food was great. Got stuck at the worst table in the house next to the waiter/bus station. The table was so close to the nearby table the waiter could not pass through. They would have to go around the waiter station. He was overwhelmed with the crowd. Dover Sole and Steak were excellent. Help was friendly. Saving up for a return visit.

We came here for dinner to relax and eat. Our server was wonderful. He helped me pick something to eat based on what I explained to him that I liked and he did an excellent job. We also ordered a steak from the todays special menu and it was fantastic! Lucky for me my husband likes to share! We will definitely be coming back here for dinner more often.

Made a reservation for 8 pm...seated till 8:50 pm.

Service was terrible. Our server had several large tables and seemed very annoyed by us (party of 2).

Food was delayed as well. Ordered an appetizer and when we wanted to order our entre the server asked if we wanted it the same time as our meal. When we responded, no, he rolled his eyes. While we waited for the appertizers and entre, the server did not ask if we wanted other refreshments other than the wine we obtained from the bar. Not impressed by the food.

Overall, this was a terrible dining experience and will likely not to return. Would not recommend this restaurant.

We waited an hour for a reservation based table. Then, they asked if we wanted a booth, but failed to tell us it was in the bar, where everyone was standing right over our table hovering.

Great food and excellent service from our waiter Constantine - he was extremely attentive, attuned to food allergies, and professional. The manager, Phil, was highly visible on the floor and attentive and professional as well. Much appreciated.

Highly recommend - we’ll be back soon.

Calamari was tender and tasty. Salad was big enough to share. The veal parm and lasagna were very good. The chicken was a bit rubbery, unfortunately. Portion size is very generous. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The food was very good.
Not sure why the waiter kept asking questions directly to me versus my boyfriend and I.
The service was a little clunky too.
Several different wait staff members and it was confusing.
Collectively the service was very responsive which was wonderful but confusing.

Carmines was an unexpected surprise, the food was excellent with generous portions. The service was over the top with managers stopping by the table to ensure all was well. The wine list impressive and enjoyable. We will be going back to try a few more of our favorites.

If this were my first time here there would never have been a second!!! Restaurant was crowded and very loud. Server was not very attentive. Food was not what everyone brags and raves about! Will never recommend and never go back. For that kind of money you would be able to grocery shop and feed a family of five for two weeks! Very disappointed!

It was just okay. It didn’t compare to the downtown location. The menu downtown is better as it has the signature chopped salad. The Rosemont location does not have the chopped salad which is why my husband picked this restaurant as his birthday dinner location. Had we known we would have gone downtown. I’d likely refer people to go downtown as the menu is better.

We were seated at Carmine's at 7pm, and we had to ask someone for a drink after 20 minutes because no one had asked if we would like one. We ordered our meals at that time, and our food arrived at 8pm. Other diners around us received their food sooner. The restaurant was not full, so there should be no reason for the poor service. In addition, the food and drinks are over-priced and mediocre in flavor. However, the valet staff is very friendly.

Wow! Who ever designed this new restaurant did a wonderful job. The restaurant has a very zen like feel but fun. The booths in the bar are comfortable and you can watch the action. The music is perfect, upbeat but no intrusive. The food is excellent. The grilled vegetable platter is great and enough for four as an appetizer. The pasta dishes are great especially the bolognese sauce with ribbon pasta. We will be back.

The food was good, but the service was very slow. You need 1.5 hours for a lunch. The restaurant was not busy so it seems that it is just their style to be very slow.
