We had heard great things about this restaurant. Great food and top notch service. We went there with three other couples. Boy were we disappointed. While the food was good the very poor service ruined what should have been a good experience. One of the members of our group ordered wine with his meal and it never arrived until he... More

My husband had a lamb sausage pasta dish which was very tasty. Our companion couple had steaks which melted in their mouth. Dessert was a chocolate marshmellow carmel... More

Had dinner tonight with 2 friends. The menu is seasonal so what is offered this week may not be available next week. We tried the house salad, shrimp with heads, squid, pasta w sausage, cod, roast beef and apple crisp. All dishes were well prepared and we'll presented. Each dish had a fresh seasoning that made for a very enjoyable... More

Wanting Italian fare a step above pizza we wandered about Lewiston NY and found Carmelo's Restaurant a very comfortable and inviting place to dine. Happily, the decor and excellent service were able to highlight the inventive menu. This was quite a surprise and we are going back again. Our meal included a wine for my wife and craft beer for...

We started out standing at the bar. The beer was served so frothy he only got half a glass then she forgot to serve the rest. She was handling everything with her hands including filthy cleaning cloths and my lemon. Next we watched a server mess with the coffee. I'm not exactly sure what she did or why but she... More

Relax at the bar, eat outside on the sidewalk in good weather or take a table. Take it from a local resident, and dont miss this place... More

For a Saturday evening, we still had to wait about 45 minutes so sat at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail. The food was original and freshly cooked. The restaurant was busy but the waitstaff was quite attentive and made the evening quite enjoyable.

We stayed at Barton Hills and planned to try restaurants nearby so we ended up at Carmelo's. The food was okay, nothing fancy about it. For appetizer we had the meat and cheese platter, the variety was good and the addition of honey comb made it unique. Food presentation was mediocre in my perspective. Taste wise it was really good... More

Carmelo's is a small, intimate restaurant where you will likely meet the chief and owner. We were fortunate to catch a steelhead out on the lake (amongst others), and our guide recommeded Carmelo's to prepare it. We called, and they agreed. I asked them to surprise us, and they did...absolutely one of the very best fish plates I've ever tasted!... More
