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!
Delicious food, great atmosphere, very generous portions!
Wonderful food and service!!
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 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!
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!!!
Very, very good environment! We felt like home.
Excelente service, food was out of this world. Service was superb
Egbert was an amazing and charismatic server.
The front door guy (gray haired guy) was nasty because due to the massive crowd we were pushed to an exit and not the entrance. He refused to ask my name to check me because we came in the wrong way. What!? I had made a reservation 3 months in advance. Nice guy at counter took my name and got my reservation.
CRITICAL TO HAVE A RESERVATION ON A SATURDAY NIGHT - PLACE WAS VERY CROWDED WITH PATRONS WAITING ON TOP OF SOME OTHER PATRONS SITTING AT TABLES - GLAD I WAS PUT ON 2ND FLOOR - QUIET AND OUT OF THE WAY OF THE LARGE CROWD. FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING AND PLENTY TO EAT AND TAKE HOME
When we arrived at 7:00pm for our reservations, we were surprised by the wait. We expected 30 minutes to a hour but there was no room to even stand and wait. They overbooked for the night. And we even overheard the staff complaining. Which they had every right too. Once we sat down? It was amazing. The service was first class. The wine service was first class. And the family sized portions were amazing. Left there wanting to loosen my belt before I walked out. Highly recommend this spot for the family!
We had a 6:00 reservation but we were not seated until 6:40. When we tried to get information, the hostess were very dismissive. We finally sat at a table with almost no room between us and the table next to us. The waiter could not serve us without excusing himself repeatedly for being in their way. The waitress who served our pasta made a sarcastic comment. We have been to Carmine’s many times and never had a problem. This experience was very different.
I love this restaurant but here is my problem with it. The last two times I went there I had reservations and ended up waiting 40 minutes past my reservation for our table. Compound this with the fact that we had elderly people in our group and no place to sit during our wait. Otherwise food and service was outstanding
Felt like we were packed in a cattle car. Not worth the wait or crowd.
Busy, but good overall. Location is great for a Broadway show.
Everyone enjoyed the food and the server was great
Let’s face it, eating out in NYC is expensive; Carmine’s family style menu really makes dinner a value. We had shrimp with white sauce on angel hair pasta; it was amazing!
I loved this restaurant. The food is amazing
Wonderful as always. Food is delicious and service was outstanding. Can't wait to go back
You can always count on Carmine's, the food is outstanding and the service is fast and friendly. I strongly recommend making reservations.
Carmines was absolutely delicious!! Food is served family style. There were 4 of us and 1 salad and 1 entree was more than enough. We didn’t know they give you bread, so unless you just really want garlic bread I’d skip ordering that. We ordered it bc we didn’t know about the bread baskets, and it was amazing but not necessary. The Italian food was just so wonderful, so I give it 5 stars and a huge recommendation. Definitely go!
The service was excellent, food was delicious and my family enjoyed the desserts . I recommend this restaurant for family gatherings.
Family style portions at a great price. Lots of seating, with spacious tables for the large of food. I’d say in terms of the space of the midtown location, I’d rather eat here then the upper west side, but the upper west side location provides much better service
OMG best food ever! It was so traditional and delicious!
Great food, hugh portions. Very enjoyable.
Great prices. One dish would serve 2 if not 3 people.
This place is a must! Food is out of this world, service is great and the value is amazing. I would eat here every night!
Wonderful staff, ambiance and food. Definitely coming back.
Valentines Day dinner.. great food and service!
Best italian food I have ever had. I have been there now 8 times and have absolutely loved it ever since.
45th Anniversary / well done.
Valentines Day celebration was FANTASTIC! Great food as always!

Ricardo at the upstairs bar was amazing! Best service and food/drinks in NYC.
