Carmine's - 44th Street - NYC
We loved it. We took the waitress recommendation and ordered the roast chicken and vegetables with garlic, herbs
It was amazing !
We come to Carmine’s every time we are in New York. The whole family loves it. The service is unmatched. We felt very taken care of.
Old school Italian, red gravy restaurant. Excellent for our group before attending a Broadway play.
Amazing night at Carmine’s ! Totally recommand this place !
Walked in went to the bar while waiting for our table. Bartender greeted us efficiently and friendly. When got to our table server was friendly and helpful. Knowing the menu. Food was excellent. Desert so yummy
Food did not live up to expectations! All felt very rushed. Had sat down, eaten and left within 30 mins. I don’t believe this is supposed to be a fast food joint! Wine served was like vinegar and sent back. Lasagne was luke warm and very average. Disappointed.
The wait was long, but the food was delicious.
Great food and great value. The problem is the wait and reservation system. Regardless of booking a reservation, we still had about a 30 minute wait.
Be prepared to wait even with a reservation. Busy place so service was so-so. Big portions perfect for sharing. Loud noisy Italian family feel. Perfect for groups and kids.
Got there early to check in (about half an hour before reservation time). We still weren't seated until about 20 minutes AFTER our reservation time. There were a ton of people waiting and nowhere really to wait. One of the people calling out names was speaking so quietly she was impossible to hear. The food was great but the hassle wasn't worth it.
Always the BEST at Carmine’s! The food and service never disappoint!
First time visit and let me tell you super amazing!! Food was amazing and tasted just like my mom’s cooking, So much food entrees are served family-Style and our waiter was just awesome, prompt, and helpful. A must go and bring an appetite or extra mouths.
Amazing Italian food!! Loved the service. Loved the location and ambiance of the restaurant. I would happily go back when I'm NYC again. Can't wait to come back.
This restaurant despite being busy was freezing cold . We had to wear our coats throughout our meal amd when we mentioned it to staff they said they could do nothing about it... trying to.eat your dinner freezing is unacceptable. Also for gluten free options the whole table must opt for GF meal even though we had one person who required it.
Food was great. It wasn’t the best spaghetti I’ve had while visiting NYC but it was good. The portions are family size. Each meatball had to weigh at least a 1/4 pound and there were 6 of them. Make sure you come hungry.
Great night. The waiter was a doll and very helpful. He helped us order the perfect amount of food and the food was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Highly recommended
Amazing food! Portions are HUGE and meant for family style. Very busy and I can see why! Drinks were great! Friendly service! Do yourself a favor and make a reservation now!
Food is very good and the place too. The only thing that bother me is that the waiter comes to your table each 3 min to ask if you have finished - even knowing that the dish is huge!
Food is terrific.
Carmine's was amazing and always is. The service was fantastic, the seating consideration was exceptional !!
Services and food were great! Our waiter Dylan was awesome! Will return again!
Another lovely meal at Carmine's. Service was great. Can't wait to go back!
I love the place, really good consistently. You know that you will get plenty of tasty Southern Italian family style food for a reasonable amount of money. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. Pasta, meatballs and eggplant parm are always aces.
Waiter was not very good. Observing other tables and their waiters, we got a dud.
We had reservations for 4 and seated right away. It was crowded, but that loud. We were fans of the food at all. You do get plenty but it was not like homemade Italian food at all. It was our first time and most likely last time. We prefer more authentic homemade Italian food.
Always a wonderful place to take visiting relatives. It was the first time our son-in-law had visited NYC, and Carmine's felt like part of the NYC experience. Our waiter could have been a bit friendlier, but other than that it was a good time.
Quick seating with reservation upstairs. Portion and pricing were great. Hit or miss with the staff service. A big crammed together for seating.
I made reservations for 6pm well in advance. They made us go wait in the back at the end of the bar. I am sure we were forgotten about as others were coming in and getting seated before us. I spoke to them three times as we had already waited 30 min. He assured we’d be next....nope-three more tables of two were seated ahead of us. At this point I went and stood right in front of them and it was still 15 min to get seated. 50 minutes in total wait time to be seated.
We were there for our 35th anniversary. I made mention of it in my reservation but there was no acknowledgement.
Food was outstanding and plentiful. Good thing due to the two issues listed above.
The space for the table seating is horrible, but I love the food
The BEST food around. Come from Long Island frequently. Shrimp Scampi is the best you will ever have!!!
Waiter was not very nice. He would not allow us to add to our order after it was placed. He greeted us and immediately told us we had 1 hour and 10 mins. Disappointed in service. Food was very good.
Horrible. From forgetting we had a reservation and left us sitting until we asked— to waiting 45 minutes for a baked clam appetizer. Our waiter could not be bothered. Annoyed that we even asked. Clams arrived cold. Needed to get the manager. Try to resolve, and the manager kept talking to us during our main meal until that food was cold. Manager took appetizer off the check, but never got the check until I went up to the hostess area and ask for it.
Never fails to amaze me. Can’t wait to come back. Delicious food, great service.
We love Carmine’s and it is one of our must go to places when we visit the city. The food and the whole experience is amazing!
Outstanding food and outstanding service, as always. Sweetly surprised my Sweet 16 year old with ice cream and singing to her.
Excellent food! We had a great time!!! Food was fresh and we enjoyed the environment!!
First time to see the rocketts with the grand kids
The service was good. The food was amazing! We will definitely come back with a larger party so we can try even more of the dishes!
It was my birthday celebration.
I made a reservation for 5 at 9:30 pm. I was not greeted when I first came in, and had to wait for the hostess to look up and acknowledge my existence. We showed up 10 minutes early and I was told someone would come over to me to take my group to our seat. We waited 30 minutes past our reservation time to get seated as their were some tables open. I told the host to push 2 of the tables together, but she replied with an attitude saying “then where are we suppose to put our 2 tops?” May I remind you we made reservations for a reason. After waiting another 10 minutes they finally sat us at the table I asked them to push together for us. Overall the food was amazing and my servers were great at accommodating us!
Food Salt intake was too heavy and made it hard for me to eat my meal.
