I made a reservation for Carmine's at Rosemont for my wife's birthday. Initially, I have dined at Rosebud in the Tri-Taylor neighborhood growing up in the 90's. Since I have had moderate experiences at Rosebud Tri_Tayor, I now live closer to the Carmines at Rosemont (so I decided to give it a chance). This will the last time I will ever dine at Carmine's at Rosemont (or in general). The "waiter" took at least 15 minutes to asks us for drinks. We sat by the bar and saw our drinks ready (it took another 15 minutes to receive them) and we were about 2 feet from the bar. There were people that were seated after us and who drinks and food was served before us. I usually have moderate expectations for Rosebud affiliated restaurant, but this experience was horrible. I order that lobster ravioli and they were served cold. I rather have gone to Olive Garden for 1/3 of the price (the food would of tasted better and the service excellent-compared to Carmines service). I had to flag down one of the managers to get the bill and just leave. I obtained the bill in minutes. Also, if I was only eating there with friends or alone, I would not really mind waiting (but it was for my wife's birthday. I rather celebrate somewhere where over $200.00 for good food and fair service (like a better know steakhouse) or pay less at a lower tier restaurant for humble service and decent food.

After being told that the specialty of the house (cacio e pepe) had run out, 3 of our 6 diners had ordered it, we had to hurriedly pick an alternate. In a few words, it was not good. While we were eating, a server wheeled up a cart to an adjacent table and began preparing the cacio e pepe! When we asked about it we were told that they really didn't run out but had too many requests for the tableside prep to handle, huh? We were offered a dessert as an apology and the manager never came by. My lasagna was not hot and , at $25.00 per order, should have been. This place is typical Rosedbud, an overpriced tourist trap. There are much better choices for Italian at more reasonable prices. Save your money!

Tables are way too close together. Staff could barely make it between to serve. When a table was finished with dinner and were leaving it disrupted all tables around them as they tried to make their way to the front.

Fabulous dining experience!! We had a great time.. had dinner with an ex=coworker that we catch up twice a year. Service was great!! Food was delicious... definitely would go back..Next time I will request the outdoor type room. It looks like a patio, but when it is cooler it is enclosed.

Two things I was impressed with were the venue and the valley attendant.. everything else was okay! Food, all though big portions, was okay.. and very pricey.. everything is a la carte so for example 30 dollars will buy you 2 chicken breast and no side... mehhh... server was fine, service was fast...
Venue is beautiful and new and the parking valley gentleman was excellent.. efficient, thoughtfull, took my carryoutbag and placed it in the backseat anticipating that my friend will ride in the passenger seat, but we drove separately.. either way very thoughtful.. its the small things that make a difference.

Welcome Carmine’s! Excellent service and food is outstanding as always. Jay, our waiter, did an outstanding job with our large group.

One suggestion is music is a bit loud, otherwise it was fantastic.

So happy they’ve open out in Rosemont and we don’t have to go all the way downtown to enjoy Carmine’s.

The service was absolutely impeccable! Even the managers were on the floor and very involved in the service and happiness of the patrons. I saw the staff set a table, check how fine it looked (including checking for water spots on the wine glasses). Our server was Dante. He was very informative and attentive.

I don’t think we will go back to Carmine’s.

The method of the waiters was odd and unsettling. It seemed like we had two waiters, but they didn’t appear to be working in concert. One would come by and ask if we needed anything or were ready to order, and then the other would come by a couple of minutes later to ask the same questions, seemingly unaware of the other waiter’s existence. It carried on like that throughout the dinner. It was funny, but also quite jarring. Maybe that’s their method, but it’s hard to imagine that this restaurant group would train their waitstaff that way.

The food was fine, and appropriately priced. But the ambiance- both the noise, the waitstaff, and the bright lights- was off-putting.

It was one of the strangest dining experiences my wife and I have had in a long time. The whole restaurant had kind of a Star Wars Bar feel. It was a total mind blow, front to back, and not in a “I can’t wait to come back” kind of way.

Service was outstanding and our waiter was passionate and Informed about the menu, he also was very diligent about swapping/rectifying items that did not come out up to standard.

Our only minor complaint is related to the above. At a restaurant that prices itself as a fine dining establishment, simple mistakes by the kitchen, ie forgetting dressing on a salad, extra onions, etc shouldn’t be an issue, but as stated above our server was fantastic in quickly resolving any issues.

Overall another great experience, will be back.

I must begin by saying I've been to rosebud restaurants about 3 or 4 times before and have never been impressed by the food. The bill is really impressive as I don't understand why it costs so much for macaroni that is edible at best. I usually go to a small place in the neighborhood and the gravy is so friggin good you want to eat the plate and tableware.

Wrong ambiance with such a classic Italian menu. According to our waitress, the owner "insisted" new hip hop and modern music be played. The food and service was excellent, just wish the music and ambiance matched the menu and food.
