    Disappointed

    Upon entering the restaurant we were shuffled to the bar where we had to wait even though we had reservations. The noise level was a bit much and when we were finally seated our waiter seemed to disappear. I had the veal with lemon and butter sauce. It really was lemon with veal because one taste and the amount of lemon overpowered the veal to the point you could not eat it. The only saving grace was my husband's meal of spaghetti and meatballs. The portion was large enough to share and the meatballs were good. Will not return to this restaurant.

    An outing with my in-laws

    My husband and I visit Carmine's as often as we can because we love the atmoshere and the family style fare. When my in-laws came into town for their first visit to NYC yesterday we decided to bring them out to our favorite place. I called the day before our visit to see if we could get a reservation but they only take reservations for 6 people or more after 6pm but will take a reservation for less people before 6pm so I asked for any reservation before 6pm and they said they were booked. We opted to to just go in at 5pm and see what happened. We were seated immediately and there were many tables available. My mother-in-law ordered a kahlua sombraro and the waitress never heard of it, which was odd,so we explained what it was and she brought it over and it tasted horrible, after a couple more tries she finally brought over a better tasting drink. We ordered the mixed green salad which was good but less than usual. We also got the rigatoni with broccoli and sausage in white sauce which was delicious. We decided to split 2 dishes so we also ordered the chicken marsala which was just as expensive but a lot less food because it didn't come with pasta. Overall the food was good but our waitress seemed new or confused which made the visit less satisfying. Our total bill which included 4 beers, a glass of wine and my mother-in-laws drink, came to $120 before tip. We were full and left without a doggy bag. No room for dessert or coffee which we had planned on having. I recommend trying this restaurant at least once-you won't be disappointed.

    Medioce

    Amazing how people line up for large portions of mediocre food... Attended a birthday party here. It wasn't bad, but it was by no means great -- typical dumbed down oversweetened Italian food. The ingredients were excellent, but maybe it's a step above an Italian chain restaurant or the like.

    Delicious food!

    I attended a birthday dinner here and was greatly pleased. The food is somewhat expensive but comes in large portions and is delicious. It's a great place to go with a big group. The wine and dessert were delicious and they definitely catered to our every need. Yum!

    My favorite spot in the theatre district

    Every time I go to a show I make a reservation at Carmine's. It is a great experience, the food is abundant, the waiters and bartenders and patrons are all happy friendly people which gives the place a homey atomsphere. Sitting close to others makes it more of a social event then just lunch. And I love the wine glasses. I feel I am at my grandmother's on a Sunday. If you are looking for privacy and quiet this is not the place for you. Make a reservation, if you arrive without one, eat at the bar. It is great and order the Titanic for dessert. Heads will turn.

    Outrageous Italian eating experience!

    Went here pre-theatre with a large group of friends. Had never bene to, or heard of, Carmine's before and was absolutely overwhelmed by the quality - and quantity -of food. We started out with salads and large appetizer plates heaped with meats and veggies and cheeses. Delicious! Then came platters of mushrooms stuffed with sausage (to die for), penne alla vodka, and linguine alle vongole. All incredible. Just as I thought I couldn't force down anymore food, out came eggplant parm, shrimp scampi and veal marsala. Wow. Finally, dessert platters full of tiramisu and various cakes and cappuccinos all around. Will dream of this meal for months to come!

    Lotsa Food - Nothin' Else

    Three of us were there on 5/14 as we were told "it's a great place" - yeah, well ... we'll never go there again. Food is served family style, meaning lots and lots of it; ours were regular salad ($9.50) and spaghetti with huge meatballs ($21+). The food was good & plenty of it, so no complaint there. The guy outside said a 1-1/2- to 2-hour wait, but you can sit at the bar & get served from the full menu. We got lucky & got a seat as we entered, but waited & waited for a waiter/ress; we finally flagged someone & were told "you have to order from the bartender." Okay, but the menu is on a wall (away from where we were seated) - so we get up & almost lose our seats. My daughter had to go to the bar, order our food, go back for drinks, silverware, etc. Since it was a Sat evening & many people, we had to listen really carefully for our name, then go back to the bar for the salad, then again for the spaghetti. Young women were walking around calling out peoples' names for I guess dining in the real part of the restaurant. They really should have a PA system or the flickering/vibrating things to notify the parties. We never did see any other part of the restaurant; the restroom facilities were up a lot of steep steps, so we went to Toys R Us instead for that purpose. When we go to NYC next year, we will not frequent Carmine's.
