The food is phenominal.Place is semi romantic. Recommend surf and turf. The owner really cares about your dining experience.

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

This is still (just) one of my favourite steak houses anywhere! My first two visits were amazing (and I would have given 5 stars for those visits). But it would seem the kitchen is not always able to maintain consistency. My visit in May 2014 was still very good, but somehow the steak had lost that "wow" factor. What I... More

Do not be fooled because of it being pricey the portions match the price. My wife had the fish had about 6 fillets. I had the prime rib double the size of other restaurants. The wait staff is friendly and very good. This is a quality restaurant.

Honestly, the timing of our anniversary celebration dinner at Carmen Anthony's wasn't the best because my husband and I were on diets. Nevertheless, we forged ahead and tried our best to stay on track, calorie-wise, in the face of a daunting array of culinary options. My husband had admirably submitted to my vegetarian menu for some time so was eager... More

We followed the suggestion of the friendly waiter and ordered the NY Strip Steak, with fries (and truffle oil). Perfectly cooked, tender, lean, juicy. Truly well done. Fries were good. Asparagus was crunchy and quite good. Pinot noire was an inexpensive brand, but went very well with the meat. Bread and butter were good. Overall, great attention to detail and... More

A very enjoyable experience. Service and food are on the upper end of great. Nice atmosphere. Steaks are the best. Great wine list. Nice selection for any pleasure.
