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!

Wonderful food and exceptional service. Too tightly seated on the back wall of the first wall, though.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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
