If you like tender, well prepared, food and attentive service, Carmine's should be on your list. The menu leans toward meat, of course, although they do offer seafood entrées including fish, shrimp, and scallops. We are early diners so we were seated immediately and attended by Todd, a knowledgeable and friendly server. Declining the appealing appetizer selections, we went right... More

We visited on a slow Tuesday night. Great salads, steak butter was amazing on our 8 oz filets. Best of all were the desserts. I ordered the multi layer chocolate cake (marble cake, chocolate mousse and white chocolate mousse filling with chocolate ganache on top) and my wife had the cheesecake. Quite possibly the best desserts we've ever had. My... More

Great great service. Went here after baseball game and had a fantastic meal. I had the Cajun scallops which were creative and delicious. Our table had plenty of steaks which were an absolute hit. I'm a wine geek and was pleased when our bottle was served at perfect cellar temperature. This restaurant was not our first choice but after tonight... More

I felt very well taken care of. The staff was great. I only had a dinner salad and shrimp cocktail. I did hear some other patrons rave about their steaks.

Carmine's was great for a late dinner. The restaurant itself is very old school, I could imagine the cast of Mad Men eating hear in the 50's. Not super trendy, but the service was fantastic. The food was really good. Had a 8 oz filet with a horseradish sauce on the bottom and buffalo mozzarella on top. The steak itself... More

I was a bit concerned when I went inside. No table clothes and no fancy ambiance. But for the money, it was great. The Caesar salad was amazing. The bone-in ribeye was cooked perfectly. The au gratin potatoes were so so. My wife loved her meal and for her, that's quite a statement in itself. Overall, it's no Ruth's Chris,... More

Excellent food, perfect service, and a great value. We started with salads, which were excellent. For our entrées, We both had the filet, mine with the risotto and hers with the baked potato. Everything was prepared perfectly. It was early on a Wednesday night and to my surprise the place was nearly empty. What's up with that?

Very good place to eat a high end meal. Had a kids menu as well and the service was fantastic. Recommend ordering a steak. I ordered a tuna which was a mistake. If you go to a steakhouse, order a steak.

We were in St Louis for a Cardinal's game and wanted a something other than a burger, short walk (1 block) from the Hilton ball Park and 2 block's from Busch Stadium was a great idea. Well above average menu and the food was terrific. I was there with my 25 year old daughter and we were both pleasantly surprised.... More
