Excellent steak, but bring the wallet!

I had their special 8oz filet with Gorgonzola on Portobello. The steak was cooked a perfect medium rare for me. The "on Portobello" was a misnomer, as it was tiny chunks, and I have no idea whether it was really Portobello or a more pedestrian mushroom. The side of squash and tomatoes was done... read more

Steak is my favorite food bar none and ribeye is my hands down "go to" steak. From reviews on Trip Advisor I expected a great meal and this steak set a new standard for others to be judged by. Perfectly grilled with a seasoning the didn't distract from the beef, it was just what I needed in a steak. The... More

Carmine's is a posh restaurant where you can have very good steaks. Mine was absolutely delicious. it was perfectly cooked and I enjoyed every bite of it. It is also quite pricey. Apparently it is also quite famous in the city.

The hands-on family management of this restaurant makes this Restaurant...they care but it's basically an old-world Midwest steakhouse with old-fashioned fixins..if that's what you're craving, this is your place....definitely not nouvelle cuisine with healthy preparations. The rest of the staff we encountered were not well-trained & not so knowledgable. The location is great...walking distance to the ballpark so if you're... More

Carmine's was the shining gem on my entire business trip to St. Louis. My fiancee met me on the last day of my trip so we decided to treat ourselves to a steak dinner. We were not disappointed! Complimentary valet service and we were immediately seated. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us GREAT suggestions. The... More

....and nor just salads either! Many things on this menu either are, or can be made GF. I had the Sicilian chicken with a side order of baked potato. Beware - portions are not small. Goo value for money, and I even had a choice of a couple of desserts too. The restaurant itself is elegant, but welcoming. Staff were... More

I ate here recently with a business associate while visiting St. Louis on business. The restaurant is conveniently located to many major hotels in downtown. We had the Restaurant Week menu. My toasted ravioli was good. This is a common St. Louis specialty, but it's never great anywhere I've tried it (and this was no exception). My chicken dish was... More

Melt in your mouth steaks, delicious seafood, and great service. I loved the classic supper club style of the restaurant. I went with my husband and children and we all loved our meal.

It is surprising to find a 5-star restaurant attached to a hotel that caters heavily to families. The food excellent (a filet with a gargonzola sauce was on of the best I have ever had), the service could not have been better. Highly recommend

Seven of us were seated comfortably and ordered a variety of appetizers and entrees. Each of us said the food was 'good.' I enjoyed the rack of lamb very much. Three of us had steak, each prepared slightly differently. The scallops looked great and were reported to be 'delicious.'I was surprised that there weren't more seafood offerings on the menu....

We do try to make sure that we have options other than steak for our guests, should they be in the mood for something different with our 4 chicken dishes... More
