    Using open table for carmines was great. It’s normally a busy place and can be difficult to get a table as a walk in, but we reserved a reservation 20 minutes ahead and we’re seated within 5 minutes of getting to the restaurant. The service is prompt, the food comes quickly and it’s exactly what you’d want from a family style Italian restaurant. Generous portion sizes.

    Food was unbelievable. The table next to us said that Carmines salad was really good so we got that as well and they were right. Our server was wonderful as well as the bus boy. I’m sure glad we had a reservation and will come back every time we are in the area. The restaurant was also decorated so festively. That also contributed to our enjoyment of the place. You can’t go wrong at Carmine’s!

    This was our first time to Carmine’s. Even booking 2 months in advance we were only able to get as late as 4:45pm. It was so worth it. With only 2 people we ordered 1 app and one main and had plenty left over, Also the best sangria I have had as well. We were sad we were too full not to try the chocolate cannolis for dessert. We will definitely be back our next trip to NYC!

    First visit and the food was amazing with large portions. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Our server had zero personality, didn’t check on us at all, and given wrong drink orders twice after asking for correct drinks when dinner was delivered since he didn’t come back.

    The food was overpriced…. Chicken scarpiello wings were burned, meatballs were not tasty at all, salad no taste…. Strawberry shortcake /pound cake was all burned on the bottom. Carmines isn’t what it used to be VERY DISAPPOINTING! Won’t be back☹️

    Carmine’s on a Sunday afternoon at 1:00 was very busy, but because we had reservations, we were seated quickly! Our server Alexia was very friendly and prompt. She made our visit even better than we expected! The linguine with meatballs was delicious. The pear, walnut, Gorgonzola salad was the special that day. It was AMAZING!! Truly a fabulous experience overall!

    We frequent Carmine's but were a little disappointed with our latest visit. The bussing staff clearing the table were very unfriendly. We were asked if we wanted a box, to which we replied no. The staff scooped up the platter and ran off with it. We weren't even done! One of the staff took a family member's plate while she was still eating. I know it's a busy season however rushing patrons off is highly insulting.

    You will never walk away hungry from Carmine’s. We had an amazing platter of chicken scallopini, tender thin chicken in a lemon butter sauce over delicious sautéed spinach. We supplemented that with spaghetti and marinara sauce and a bottle of Chianti. Miguel was courteous and attentive. We never felt rushed and ended out meal with relaxing drinks —- highly recommend the espresso martini. Would eat here every week if we lived closer. Carmine’s cookbook is the most used one in our kitchen but somehow the meals are always better from the source.

    Totally worth the wait! We had reservations for a few months and you know how most restaurants want you there at least 15 minutes before your reservation? Not at Carmines. Don’t show up early or you’ll be waiting outside. They literally don’t let you in the door until it’s reservation time. Then you wait inside at or around the bar for another 20 minutes. But, totally worth it! The food is impeccable, the service is far above standard, and the drinks are poured perfectly. However, all of that reflects in the bill. Very expensive! For just the two of us, including our bar tab and tip, our meal was over $300. But we got the largest lobster plate they had. So if you want to spoil yourself, go to Carmines in Times Square!

    I adore Carmines I have been to this location numerous times but this was a bit of a mess. We had a reservation along with the other 100 people jammed into the entry way. It was very loud, very chaotic, no one could hear names being called, the crowd took it upon themselves to start screaming names when the poor girls at the front just couldn’t be heard. Once we got passed that everything was great. Our waiter made a very small mistake and absolutely over compensated for the issue. Not sure I would come back during the holidays but otherwise I would.

    We were seated a half-hour after our reservation. We were jammed in the bar area with a ton of other people, also waiting for their table. We were regularly physically pushed aside for waiters and attendants needing to walk through with plates and bins. When I kindly asked the host for a status 20 minutes after our reservation time, I was given a lot of attitude. I totally understand it's the holidays and things are hectic so I don't blame the waiters for doing their jobs, but I could've done without the shade from the managers. On the flip side, the food was great, the drinks were memorable, and our server was fantastic and attentive to getting in our order quickly, given we had tickets to a Broadway show. I would try it again, but perhaps not on a holiday weekend.
