First.....ask for Kristi!!! On a scale of 1-10 she is a BIG 11! Awesome service! Awesome food! If they have a bone in Rib Eye get it! The Filet is mouth watering too! The twice baked potato is the size of 2 baked potatoes. The spinach is to die for! Location is great. Very close to several hotels in the... More

Loved this place, great waiter made our night pleasant. We were all on business and there was no problem with split and individual checks, the food was great and everything came out perfectly.

The decor is understated and lovely, particularly the unique charger plates. The steak, seafood and chicken were all very good. Their claim to have the best home made toasted ravioli may or may not be true, but they are good! Pricey but not too bad for the quality.

This restaurant is a block away from the Hyatt Regency. The food was excellent as was the service. They accommodated specific requests with aplomb.

I was traveling on business and the temperature outdoors was VERY cold (below zero wind chills). So, my colleague and I decided to eat at Carmine's (which is the restaurant in the Drury Plaza Hotel). My overall opinion of the experience was that the food was exceptionally good, the price a little high. For a glass of cabernet, an 8... More

If you order anything, make it the toasted ravioli. OMG. It is excellent!. As for Steaks? Filet or Ribeye are ridiculously delicious. Sometimes the service is a little bit off. We could find our server for a bit and when she came back she reeked of cigarette smoke, but the food is a 10 out of 10 and I highly... More

First of all, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your food and thank you for your review. As far as the server issue, I can tell you that we only allow cigarette breaks at the beginning and end of shifts and absolutely never when they have a table. Clearly our policies were not followed in your case and... More

I had read that there were two things you had to eat in St. Louis. One was the frozen custard at Ted Drewes and the other was toasted ravioli. Our receptionist at the Drury (next door to the restaurant) said that Carmine's had the best toasted ravioli in the city. My husband and I split one appetizer order which gave... More

Carmine's is a short walk from the Hilton at the Ballpark. This is a high-end steakhouse so be prepared for a pricey meal. It is, however, well worth it. Their steaks are delicious. The sides are interesting and tasty. Wonderful desserts too. The wait staff are friendly, professional, and very attentive without being intrusive. One person in our party had... More

If you really want a great dining experience, and not get the $100+ box dinner from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, then you really need to visit Carmine's. It is only two blocks away from the Hyatt by the Drewery Inn. I was there on 21 Nov 2015, with a group that I meet for board meetings. We bring our own wine,... More

Heard this place was excellent and a little bit cheaper then Ruth Chris Steak House. Normally we do not eat at super pricey places like this, but this trip we were treating ourselves. Honestly, the crab cakes were mushy and hardly any crab. The ravioli was terrible with no flavor and thats even drowning it in the watery tomato sauce... More
