Carmine's is good for a large group on a bus trip, but the food is average in my opinion. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great either. We had one waiter who thought we'd all like to hear his political opinions about the recent elections. I would rather he served our food!

Salads, Pasta's, Fresh fish - all are served family style. Pricey, but very very good, and worth every penny. Be sure to make reservations in advance!

I've been going to Carmines for years and it is always consistently excellent! There are two located in Manhattan, one in the theater district, and the other original one on the upper Westside of the city. They're both good but I prefer the original one uptown on Broadway, which is where we recently went. We were with a group of... More

We went over thanksgiving weekend and while it was crowded, the service was good and the food came promptly. The food was very good. We got a salad and three entrees for 8 adults with a little left over for lunch the next day.

Went with a group of 7 friends for dinner. Went to resturant at 6pm, left our name and they called us for a table at around 8pm. We had 15mins to get back to the restaurant for our reservation. Place was packed, and very loud. Tables are pretty close together. Waiter was nice enough. Food comes out fast - name... More

We tried to reserve a table through their reservation system. It said everything was booked. We decided to actually call the restaurant as it was a week-night and they said come ahead. We were early and there were plenty of tables. The service here was excellent - our waitress in particular was savvy and personable. The complimentary bread was delicious.... More

Had the spaghetti and meatballs and it was the nastiest pasta we have ever eaten! And we LOVE PASTA!!! The meatballs didn't taste like real hamburger! It was mushy like cat food. We will never come back here!!! Service was great and we were sat 10min after our reservation time, but the hotel was extremely hot and crowded. But the... More

We've been to the theatre district location dozens of times over the past 20 years as it is very close to our apartment on 9th Avenue. We were with friends on the UPWS and decided to have lunch there. Vive le difference! So much better on every level - service, ambience, noise level and the food was good or better... More

Description
Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. Located in a sprawling, former grand ballroom on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, this is the original Carmines. Designed by Peter Niemitz, the interiors evoke the images of the quintessential New York restaurant. With elements and details from the 1920s to the 1940s, the restaurant has the look and feel of a place that has been around for much longer than it's 1990 opening. If you are in the market for freshly prepared family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.
