“Great steak and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We were recommended Carmine's by the Hilton staff and found it quite easily, only three blocks-walk from the hotel. The setting was great, and a mixture of business groups and couples were seated when we arrived at about 6pm. The service was excellent throughout the evening and the waiter made a great recommendation for the Syrah red wine, of which we had a glass each. Portion-wise, huge - if you're from the UK you will struggle to eat all the available sides as well as the main course. We had scallops starter, excellent. My steak was a gorgonzola covered fillet of sirloin (8oz) and my colleague has a 16oz New York strip - both cooked to perfection. We had sides of risotto and a shared plate of onions and mushrooms. Overall price was about $120 but as the last meal at the end of a successful trip well worth it.

“Awesome Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Great Service! Great Food! Mixed with Illni fans and had a great time. The lobster risotto was to die for.

“Flexible menu and a really good dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I was in town for a conference and someone recommended Carmine's (it is a short walk from where I was staying). After a day of snacking on conference treats, I didn't want a full dinner but I didn't just want a snack. The waiter recommended combining the two appetizers that I mentioned (crab cakes, toasted ravioli) into something of a sampler plate, and it worked really well. The food was very tasty, and there were plenty of refills of my ice tea. This seems like a spot that would be an easy walk for most people from the arch or the ballpark, and if your waiter is as helpful as mine you should do fine here.

“Not bad spur of the moment decision”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

At the last minute during a business trip to St. Louis I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Luckily, we did not need a restaurant considering it was a Saturday night. There was complimentary valet which was helpful considering that I am on crutches. The atmosphere was okay, I thought some of the tables were a little too close for my comfort. The lighting was low and there was not a lot of background noise. The food was great, I had scallops and my friend had a steak. The price was comparable for other steakhouses I have been to. Overall a good experience.

“Good steak house in St Louis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I hade a filet mignon (which was the special of the day) and was really good. Would recommend this place if you love meat. Prices were not too bad also. Selection of wine was limited but those we had (a red spanish wine) was good and very reasonably priced. Service was good and friendly.
