I was treated to a dinner here on my birthday and everything was sssoooo overpriced & ala carte, that I coulndn't even enjoy my meal, knowing how overpriced the food was. Every part of the meal was charged separately, potato, veg, etc... Could you enjoy a $10 baked potato? Disgusting fees. I'll never go back.

I stopped in tonight for the first time in a couple of years. I was greeted by the same bartender - that says something. Craig is friendly and enjoys getting to know his customers. The service was great. The restaurant has a great Happy Hour with martini specials and some $6 appetizers. I had the pomegranate martini (well actually 2)... More

I was more than let down with this dining experience. For a steakhouse with prices all exceeding $30 with out salads or sides, you would think their steaks would be divine. All of our steaks were chewy, stringy, cooked not quite right and just disappointing. My caeser salad was dripping with dressing and the asparagus was stringy and just warm.... More

Everything was well prepared and very good. We had steaks (filets) , fish, and several sides. One pasta. All were first rate. Desserts looked excellent... More

Was looking for a decent seafood restaurant in Waterbury and there wasn't much to choose from so I decided to try this place-even though it is a steakhouse-and I wasn't disappointed. Not only was the food outstanding but the presentation was just as impressive. Whitney, our server, was also an extreme pleasure to work with as she was attentive and... More

I have been to Carmen Anthony's on several occasions but had not been there in some time. The food is always great but is a little pricy for me so I would go on special occasions. I am not sure when they started the "Happy Hour" but it was excellent and very affordable. I had the flat bread pizza and... More

Where else can you go to have your own, personal, wine rack....patiently waiting with your favorite aged wine for you to visit again? Carmen Anthony's has been one of the best gourmet restaurants in the area and this is just one of three locations they have to entertain you with. The food is fantastic, but keep in mind, 99% of...

This was our first time at Carmen Anthony's Steakhouse. We had been to Carmen Anthony's Seafood in Woodbury and were not disappointed. Being a steak lover I was hoping that the name would live up to my expectations and it did. From the first cocktail to the surprise birthday dessert the dinner and portions exceeded my expectations. There were six... More
