I visited Carmine’s for the first time few nights ago with 2 guests. Décor is a little old. Service was very courteous but a little too pressing. We skipped the appetizers and we had 1 filet and 2 NY steaks (small size). We had one bottle of wine among the “cheapest” in the wine list and a couple of cocktails.... More

Just finished a company sponsored dinner at Carmine's. We had a party of 12 but the service was incredible. Everyone was served in a timely fashion without feeling rushed. From the lobster bites to the meal to the caramel cake for dessert - I could not have been more pleased. Everyone at our table commented on how good the food... More

Very attentive bartender and friendly staff. The wife and I stopped in for dinner while in town for an event. After reading other reviews had to give it a shot. We were quickly seated in a booth near the bar and our drink orders were taken. For our meal, my wife ordered the filet gorgonzola and I had the 14... More

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

The wait staff is outstanding. Very good knowledge of the menu & daily specials. Service was terrific, very attentive without being intrusive. The food was good, but I'd recommend sticking to the steaks. Everyone who had a steak was very happy. The one scrimp dish was not up to par.

Thank you for the review. It is great to hear that your group enjoyed their dinner. I only wish that when checked on, the entree that was not being enjoyed could have been addressed immediately and replaced with something more to their liking.

Great service! Great steaks. ~$200 for a family of 4 but good value for the money spent. Traveling with a ten year old so really appreciated the off menu choices they offered him. He really liked the chicken strips and fries. Not a place we would eat regularly due to price, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

Due to the hotel we are connected to and being so close to Busch Stadium, we have many families visit us and want to make sure we cater to the whole family. We were happy to treat you and your family for a great night out and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in St. Louis. More

We changed our time and party size from the original reservation and the staff were very accommodating. Our group of six included several tall people which can be troublesome in smaller restaurants with less leg room but the restaurant has spacious, comfortable seating. Our 14 year old daughter loved the ravioli appetizer while the adults enjoyed the oysters, crab cake... More
