I have had some decent meals at Carmen's. We visited again on New Year's Eve, and there some issues. A lost reservation was met with swift managememt intervention and a table readily provided. The preferred beer of my companion was not available, though, despite having been offered by the friendly server. His chicken spideni was pronounced marvelous, but my salmon oscar was over-cooked and tasteless. A second try was marginally palatable. The accompanying pasta was from a box, though nicely cooked al dente. The sauce had no flavor. I declined to take the leftovers home. The server offered a comp dessert. We shared a taramissu which was surprisingly good, with a decent cup of coffee. Hits and misses from a usually fine place, perhaps due to the crowds they expected later in the evening.
