Carmine's - 44th Street - NYC
Platters of made to order antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing among friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!
Retirement. Had a great dinner
I had a very wonderful time as always
My wife and myself enjoyed our meal
First time at Carmine’s, we absolutely loved it. Go easy when ordering, every plate will serve 2-3 people, huge portions. Booked again, so good!
Food was good but they mixed our food with table beside us!
We went to days in a row to eat at Carmine's. At the first day the service was amazing. However, at the second day, it looked like they wanted us out of there as fast as possible. I hadn't even fineshed eating and the waiter was already removing my plate. After that, he asked if we wanted desert. When we said no, we brought us the check without us asking. We still had wine to drink. He didn't even ask if we wanted something else, which by the way, we did. We wanted more wine. But after that terrible service, we just went back home
Loved Carmines. Food excellent and our waiter was fabulous. Only criticism is the miserable woman on the front door. She was rude and unwelcoming and nearly made us leave and go elsewhere. Our waiter was just fantastic and derserves high praise . Food superb
5 stars to Kenny who graciously accommodated our reservation from a party of 2 to 4. When calling in to up the party from 2 to 4, a hard no was given. At the restaurant, Kenny provided that personal touch & stellar customer service.
Service was very good- friendly and quick. Food was also good. A little loud.
We had a great meal at Carmine’s before seeing a broadway show. There was plenty of food for the five in our party and we enjoyed everything! Can’t wait to go back and try different dishes.
Love every second of it. From start to finish the experience was amazing!
Lovely meal, very large portion of food we shared between the three of us. Food absolutely delicious. Unfortunately the diners on the adjacent table where very loud and we couldnt hear ourselves.
would have preferred my wine served in a wine glass vs a water cup. that was disappointing for my occasion.
Great place for great food. Highly recommended. Quality and quantity are there. Do not hesitate but don't forget to book.
We went to days in a row to eat at Carmine's. This first day the service was amazing.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, very generous portions!
Poor customer service.
Booked ahead and was greeted by a very rude sharp lady at the door and was told" to wait over there".
No chairs , just standing only which was so noisy and crowded, you could not hear names being called out.
When I asked about a seat she replied" no seats , stand over there"!!
That was terrible customer service!
The starter was taken away when mains arrived but I was still eating and still had food on my plate which was wisked away??
Although food was amazing the customer service let Carmines down.
There should be happy, pleasant and helpful people greeting customers on the door , not miserable, sour faced , abrupt people and waiters who should realise that if someone is still eating, you DO NOT take away their food!
Wonderful food and service!!
Family style was great. Drinks were awesome! Just loved it and I will be returning with more family and friends to sample other great dishes!
Cheers, ANTONIA C.
Wonderful food. Caesar salad, Chicken Marsala, Angel Hair Bolognese. Exceptional.Great ambiance, including the music. Reservation was right on time. Good service, but occasionally had to search out the waiter, who was very pleasant. However $10.00 for a small plate of pasta with butter was way out of line for what was served on the plate.
Great food and service. Great place to go to after a broadway show. Quick walk from the theatre. Ambience was nice and the bartender and wait staff were very nice!
Portions are huge. So much food goes to waste. I understand it’s family style but if you only have a party of 2 there’s no way you can eat it all
We were really looking forward to eating here since so many people rave about it but honestly it was kind of lackluster. The service was poor, it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other across the table, and the bathrooms were filthy. The food was just ok. It is served family style so it comes out on huge platters which would be fun with a big group but with only two people we only ordered one thing and couldn’t even finish half of it. I’m sure it would have been more fun to try multiple dishes but the spaghetti with bolognese meat sauce wasn’t anything to write home about.
Felt welcomed and taken care of. We were seated right away, as per the reservation. Food is very good, lots af garlic. Place runs like clockwork, nice feel to decor. It is a busy p,ace with lots of families, so it’s not exactly quiet but does capture some of the busy excitement of NYC theater district.
Party of eight, early dinner for us and our kids. Perfectly prepared food and great service.
Totally amazing food and service. Recommend this to anyone. portions sizes are huge.. If I was in New York longer I would definitely be going back
Amazing food ! Our waitress Irene was amazing !!! I can’t wait to go back
7 I'm really just disappointed but I was never told it is family style when I made reservations and I paid $35 for a Caesar salad what is wrong with you people
We were reccomend to try carmines from some back in the UK. Best recommendation ever food was amazing especially the carmines salad who knew salad could be so good. Definitely worth a visit if travelling to New York. But you would definitely need to book .
Amazing food and service. Portions are huge but I’m not complaining. Will definitely go again when I’m back.
Ravioli was really good. Service was so so. Very crowded so that’s probably why.
I told you about our experience yesterday. I haven’t heard back from you all.
Had to wait about a half hour after reservation time to get seated. Once seated, service was fast, bread came out cold. But overall food was excellent. So delicious!! Will continue to go back for more!
Great place for large groups. Food and service were outstanding.
Great food, service and value
Great food and service!
Wonderful food and exceptional service. Too tightly seated on the back wall of the first wall, though.
Carmine’s gets better each time we visit! Amazing food, served fresh and hot and lotsssss of it!! Service was excellent too Thanks! Can’t wait to go back!
Tried chicken contaminated for the first time. It was terrific! Enough for four hungry people. Stuffed artichoke and rigatoni with broccoli in garlic and oil were both tasty as always. Love this place!
Very, very good environment! We felt like home.
This was only our 2nd time there. The first time was about 7 years ago. The restaurant, staff and food is just as I remembered, FANTASTIC!!! This restaurant will always be our favorite place to eat when in NYC!!
Thank you so much for putting your customers first, it shows!!!
