Carmen's is a long-standing tradition with us. We have been going there for years as we pass through Scranton. Although we stopped staying at the Radisson/Lackawanna Station hotel due to their flaky wi-fi system, we definitely wouldn't miss going there to enjoy Carmen's. Last night we had their tasty misto salad (the best we've had anywhere). The bread is home-made... More

During the previous visits to your brunch, we had excellent service. The ambiance of your location and the historical setting were excellent. Your food choice and picturesque arrangement has always been tip top along with your beautiful piano playing. Decorations were terrific. However, during this visit, our waitress was poor. Long waits for her service were unnecessary. She would look... More

Located in the lobby of the Radisson, a former train depot, this restaurant has plenty of old world charm and historical interest. We attended the Christmas buffet. The selection of food was impressive, from breakfast items, (french toast, eggs Florentine, omelet station), a carving station featuring pork and turkey, and food items ranging from hot entrees, assorted Chinese dumplings, antipasto,...

Carmen's is located in the lobby of the old Lackawanna Station. If you like things historical, this is an excellent location. If you like good food, also an excellent place. My son ordered the Chicken Panzanella and I ordered the Salmon. Both of us enjoyed our meals. If there is a criticism, it would be I wish the serving size... More

My wife and I visited Carmen’s last week. They have a “Flavors of the World” theme going on and the current month featured German food. We made reservations online and expected to have a romantic dinner for two. Unfortunately the night did not work out that way. Upon arrival the parking lot was full and I do mean FULL. I... More

We stayed at the hotel and ate twice at their afternoon buffet. Food and cost was very good and staff was exceptional. Wonderful experience and all this in the middle of a beautiful building with so much history...

Been here a few times for the brunch on Sunday. It's nice. This past weekend we did have reservations and it did seem pretty busy. The staff was nice. I liked more of the breakfast items than what I would eat of the lunch items. Some kind of odd selections that aren't to my tasting but everyone has their own... More

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast here before ending our overnight stay. He had the veggie scramble and I had the eggs benedict. Both dishes were fantastic and well prepared. The coffee was fresh and the service was excellent. Our server was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The menu was full of options for meat lovers and veggie... More

I ordered breakfast. Pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon. The food was not much different from what you would get at a local diner. Syrup was not even real maple syrup. Only difference was that I paid much more for the food. Coffee was luke warm. Service was fine.
