Our traveling group recently dined at Carmine's! It was wonderful as usual! Thanks for being near the Drury Inn that we stay at in St. Louis!

We enjoyed date night here while staying with our children at the attached Drury Inn - so location is key for us. The experience was better than the very dated decor would suggest (those fake flowers had me worried....) DEFINITELY get the toasted ravioli - a St. Louis tradition, really nicely prepared here. My steak was very good, prepared to... More

The food was good. We both had steak cooked perfect. My Boyfriend had a twice baked potato that he said was great I think he liked the potato better than the steak. $$$$$$

We came here on a Friday evening. We were staying at a local hotel and the location was close. There were lots of empty tables, that should have been a clue. We were greeted, taken to our table, and asked about drinks immediately. I was disappointed to find the only non-bottled beers were local microbreweries. I tried one, and it... More

There were no tables available at Ruth's Chris, so I found Carmine's Steak House for dinner with a business associate while in St Louis and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly, attentive service and high quality offerings. I have learned to appreciate a good steak house, and this one fits the model - fork tender prime steak cooked perfectly, delightful... More

The online reservation tool was easy to use and our table was ready when we arrived. The attention to details and the little extras the staff did made this an enjoyable evening for our group. The food was very tasty and visually appealing. I really liked how we were able to select individual appetizers rather than all of us agreeing... More

Good choice if you're in the neighborhood and seeking a place where the adults can eat and drink well without the kids succumbing to starvation. Service is top flight, as is the extensive wine and drink list. Nice ambiance, including the lounge music played at an appropriate, unobtrusive volume. Adult food is hit or miss, but never unacceptable. Kid food... More

I really enjoy Carmine's! The food is fabulous!! I can't get enough of the appetizer frog legs, the filets are cooked to perfection and I've truly never had such large baked/twice baked potatoes! And did I mention to exceptional service?? We live almost 2 hours from St. Louis but we're always looking for a reason to go there so we... More

This was my second visit to Carmine's and I was not disappointed. Started off w the scallops, arugula salad, and then a bone in ribeye cooked medium rare. Great flavor and cooked exactly how I requested. Very intimate atmosphere, not overly crowded but was able to great customer service. Would definitely come again.
