Carmine’s is for ambiance and name, not for great food. The dishes were over salted. The sauces were not created with the “homemade” or top chefs taste. Chicken parm was sent back due to rubbery gristle-like texture. Manager gave us a new dish to bring home which was nice. Service was attentive and friendly, so kudos to the staff. But I honestly have gotten much better food for less downtown. With all the spots to choose from in nyc this is not one I will frequent.
My taste buds were very pleased :) Loved the family style eating and round tables. Servers were great. Party of six and they serve you. Will come back again. In these times, it was a great reminder to continue doing the things you love. Enjoy moments. Live, Eat, drink and be Happy!
Typical Carmine’s evening. Copious good food. Friendly service. Great value.
Waiter. Very nice and informative. Food was excellent
the food and service was very good. We celebrated my son's 18th Birthday
Carmine s as usual : food is good , service kind and attentive, table’s size and distance from the others were generous for NYC standards
The food was amazing and the servers make you feel welcomed and always looking to see if you are doing fine .
The staff at Carmines was extremely kind and helpful. The food was outstanding. The service was excellent and the ambiance was a perfect NYC experience. I would go back again and again. One of the most wonderful restaurants in NYC! Thank you Carmine's for taking such great care of my guests and giving them one the most memorable dinners of their lives!
Paul, the Manager was awesome. He made sure everything was great. The waiter and the rest of the wait staff were perfect! The food was delicious, especially the salad of the day. Thank you to all!
Meeting an old friend
Birthday celebration for two cousins.🥳🥳
Our service was great and the food was amazing. The only what bothered me and took me by surprise is when we ordered extra penne a la vodka sauce and was told it was ya about $20. The waiter continued to tell us we are better off ordered another tray of penne la vodka. This was all after our dishes were on table. I don’t know if what he was telling us was true. We were there for my daughter’s bachelorette party
Food was great & the staff was great. two thumbs up!
Great service !
We had reservations for 13 but only 11 came. I told them this twice and they set the table for 10 people. So I told them again we have 11. Then they squeezed another chair in. The food was good. I told them it was my mother-in-law’s birthday so that they could come and sing to her. They never did that but they sang for several other guests. The noise level was extremely high and it made it difficult to talk to anyone even the person sitting next to you. I’m not sure if I will be going back.
Carmine’s has declined quite a bit in quality over the years.
The food is always great, but the prices for some of the specials seemed a bit disproportionate. We had a chicken special on a Friday that did not live up to the description we were provided. However, the staple items on the menu are reasonably priced and are always quality. The waiter we had was a bit aggressive in a friendly way, but we would have enjoyed a bit fewer interactions/interruptions from our waiter.
Old school Italian comfort food in huge portions. Love it. Good drinks, too.
The food was delicious, as always, we had the shrimp scampi with penne, stuffed mushrooms, and wings. Amanda was great and so was the gentleman who brought out the food. So pleasant and helpful.
