Carmine's - 44th Street - NYC
Followed up on a recommendation from a fried. And Carmine’s did not disappoint!! We made reservations, showed up late (NYtime), with no issues and were directed to the bar for drinks. We enjoyed the bar ambience so much we stayed there for dinner! Well, an appetizer and drinks! Once we ordered the friend calamari - there was no way we could eat another bite! Highly recommended!!!
Portions are too large for our party of three. That was sharing just one entree and salad.
We had a wonderful dinner after the theater with wonderful service.. it’s a fun restaurant to go to and I recommend it for anyone visiting the city
Very good service and great food !
We love love love love love love love love love love love love Carmine's
We went into New York from New Jersey to see the Radio City Christmas show. Our family never goes to New York. Carmine's was our first impression. It was fantastic. Our waiter was Harold and I can't imagine having a better waiter. He was so enthusiastic, friendly, and happy. When the salad and dinner arrived, Harold actually served each of us. Everything we had was absolutely delicious - a variety of bread, an Italian salad, Veal Saltimbocca, Chicken Francese, and Pasta Bolognese. Even the spinach with the Veal and Chicken was delicious. We ended with a Chocolate Torta and Tiramisu. We brought half of the Torta home only because we were too full to finish it. We are still talking about it. It was truly outstanding in everyway. Thank you Carmine's and Harold.
Love the food and place. Going back very soon! Family style, authentic tasting Italian food, great service, great location to see a play and have a wonderful meal.
Always a pleasure when I have the chance to eat at Carmine’s each time I’m in town. I’ve been coming since 1998 and they never disappoint.
Wonderful food, great service and perfect for our birthday celebration!
Staff were so friendly, system is very well ran. And I have never tasted a lasagna so flavourful in all my life. X
Food was delicious. Wait staff was excellent. Restaurant is loud so would not recommend if you are looking for quiet dinner. Great for kids.
Our server was absolutely wonderful, very knowledgeable and attentive. She was great! The food was delicious, however it could have been hotter. Our lasagna was cold but our server took care of it and brought a piping hot brand new serving. It's a beautiful restaurant but incredibly crowded with no where to stand and wait for a table. If I would have had a 2 top table next to the bar, I would have been furious and probably would have left. Theres no way you would enjoy your meal at 7pm on a Saturday night sitting in this area. Its elbow to elbow people right up against your table. We had plenty of leftovers even with 7 people in our group, the portions are huge. We were there on a bus so we gave our leftovers to four different homeless people, who were all very appreciative. All in all we had great dinner experience!
I’ve been to Carmines several times and it’s always very good. On my most recent visit I’d say it was my least enjoyable time though. Just way too busy and I think the quality of the food and atmosphere suffered a bit. Still overall a good night. Thank you
We were not sure what to expect going in. The size of the place and the crowd can be intimidating. Everything moves fast. We had reservations and the wait once we were there was short. Our server was extremely helpful and explained the ordering process. A host, noticing we kept turning to see the menu on the wall unprompted brought us a printed version, which made the process easier. The food was very good, the prices reasonable and the atmosphere festive. Our party of four all agreed we would return again, which is the yardstick we use for any venue. Go, go on an empty stomach, and enjoy a night out.
Crowded and noisy, but the food was delicious. Definitely family style, so bring a large group.
It was awesome. Love eating there.
great food, very nice environment. Perfect reservation with Open Table . No waiting time to be seated.
Thanks , Highly recommended.
Delicious food and accommodating service!
The food was so delicious but the service was slow. And though the food was really amazing, it's very expensive to me. For a special day, it was a terrific choice!
Good service. Great food.
Had some dietary restrictions which staff
Easily handled to our satisfaction.
Everyone pleasant, attentive made all of us happy.
Would go again!
Love Carmine’s!! Best stop before or after the Broadway shows!
We are always pleased with our experience at Carmine’s! A tasty meal and a fun experience! Great service!
Wonderful time with thoughtful service
A true and yummy NYC experience! Great food, fabulous ambiance and friendly service!
Great New York tradition!
Went there with the senior director of a college I attended. Love the food there!!
would not go with a party of 2. portions are served family style and they are too much for just 2 people. we ordered 1 entree which was delicious but we brought most of it home. bring the whole family to get the most of the experience!!!
The food was great. The service was terrible.
Server was inattentive. Food was great as always. The worst part of this place is having a reservation, checking in, then getting stuffed into the bar area where you can barely breathe. If it wasn’t for the quality of the food, I would recommend skipping this iconic restaurant.
The portions are way too large for two people dining. Maybe smaller portions for two people equals not do much food waste and not so expensive
Over one hour past reservation time for seating for four at 6pm. If you have a show go early! Great food and wait service.
It’s a friggin Zoo atmosphere with too many crammed in tables and people
No comfort here
Noise level like a sports arena
Where’s the pleasure in that
Like a meat market mill
Hadn't been to Carmine's in years, and now I remember why. If you want a very touristy theater-district experience with humongous food and you want to get to the theater on time, Carmine's can do a great job. If you're looking for well-prepared food brought to the table piping hot at reasonable prices, not so much. While the theater district is always a challenge, there are better alternatives.
Touristy but who cares...food is always delish! Noisy Times Square restaurant but no problem having conversation! Make a reservation! You won’t be disappointed.
The food, service, and environment were wonderful!
Food and service was fantastic
super delicious family
Style restaurant in time square. The portions are huge and the wine is amazing, everyone was friendly and the service was awesome!
A great family dining experience. Excellent food and staff.
