“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

I had sea bass and hubby had chicken parm. With one salad and one glass of wine dinner came to about $120. Portions were very large. The sea bass was fabulous! Service was good. The place could use a little sprucing up though. Looks a little dated.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

i entertained a large group last month at Carmines and had a terrific dining experience. The service was perfect and the food from our small plates , entree's and desert's could not have been better. i am always concerned about a long drawn out meal when entertaining a large group and the staff moved the pace along just as i wished, never compromising the quality of the food. Can't wait to go back.

Enjoyed dinner at this restaurant with 4 friends. We had a very nice bottle of wine and each of us enjoyed excellent food selections. The food was fresh and perfectly cooked. The atmosphere was enjoyable.

“Best Meal Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

My husband and I walked to this restaurant from our hotel. We were seated immediately on a Friday night. It was freezing outside but we opted to eat outside in the closed in area and glad we did. We were able to watch the passers by and get a feel for the city. Our food was brought out promptly as we were enjoying the bread in olive oil. The portions were hug and absolutely delicious. I would definitely return to this restaurant upon our next visit.
