Description: Since 1994, Carmine's has been Chicago's destination for exciting gatherings, spirited nightlife, celebrity sightings, and of course, an unforgettable dining experience. With a diverse menu that boasts Rosebud's classic Italian American dishes, as well as premium steaks, chops, and seafood offerings, Carmine's has long been a place where those in the know choose to eat. Our large and open dining rooms are perfect for large parties, from brunch to late-night dinners. The acclaimed patio, with its vibrant energy and friendly charm, offers guests some of the best people watching in the city. And our bar, with its famous signature cocktails, is ideal to watch the big game or check out live music. Whether you're here for a casual lunch, a formal dinner, or a cocktail, it's always a party at Carmine's, and you're always at the center of the action.

We happened upon this place. Busy so we thought we would grab a bite at the bar. There was a fantastic piano player. We had calamari and a couple of strong drinks. The ambiance was super.

Food was amazing - the lasagne was definitely enough to feed 3 people!! Unless you can eat like a horse, dont have starters as the main is more than enough with plenty left over.

great italian restaurant. the service, the food, the atmosphere, the selection, and so-on, and so-on. we really enjoyed our dinner and would truly recommend to all. we arrived at 6pm and got right in, but it soon became packed, which usually means it's worth the wait. go early.

Standard fare, large portions - too large in fact. Very busy, noisy and loud. Almost difficult to carry on a conversation. Must be popular because the line to get in was ridiculously long. Not affiliated with the Carmine's in NYC.
