“Perfect - Large Groups and Home Style Italian Fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Carmines is for large group dining as we went with a party of 20 plus. The staff are very accommodating and honest with ordering assistance about portion size. We ordered perfectly for our group and had a great variety which included persons who did not eat meat or other dietary issues. The only take away was drinking wine out of the same glasses used as water glasses. Not a fan of that at all.

“love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

A great place to go when in NYC the portions are massive and its real Italian. Need to book or you may have a bit of a wait but well worth the wait. Have a drink at the bar and soak up the atmosphere

“Family style Italian curcuma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Had dinner here last night.
8 of us in total.
We booked the table a week ago the earliest we could get was 10 pm!

We arrived at 7.30 for drinks and checked in the hostess told us there was an hour wait for table!!!!
No need to book just go there and wait.
Drinks at the bar a little bit expensive.
Huge huge portions as family style
We had a plate of Kalamari and a huge plate of salad for appetizers
Then 4 entrees and we bought most of that home.
The soft drinks are free refills at the table not the bar.
About 30$ a head average not bad for its location.
The Carmines on 90th street not so busy a bit more civilized and less tourists.

“Lousy service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Waiter was TERRIBLE. He took our drink order, took our meal order, and we didn't see him back til he came with the check. Another waiter brought our drinks, brought our entrees, kept refilling our drinks. We ordered eggplant parm with a SIDE of spaghetti. We specifically stated we wanted the spaghetti on THE SIDE. Waiter asked, once again, eggplant ON spaghetti. NO, spaghetti on the side. What did we get? Eggplant ON TOP of spaghetti. Eggplant was undercooked and still tough.
Won't be quick to choose Carmines for our next trip into the city.

“Great food and great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you have a large group Carmines is the best option, large... huge portions with a lot of taste and nice atmosphere.
If you are only two, you have to order only one entree and share because the plates are really BIG.
Waitress very busy and sometimes service is not the best, the place is always full of people and a long line outside waiting for table.
