Had the 16 ounce NY strip cooked medium and it tasted bland and came out undercooked. The sides were horrible and for the price, I would not return.

We chose Carmine's because it was very close to our hotel. The atmosphere was elegant and the food was delicious. Each diner chose something different and all dishes were very good.

We ran across this place after a Cardinals game and was pleasantly surprised! You have to get the toasted ravioli because it's home made and delicious! Our service was good, our food was quick and the atmosphere was great! A little pricey but would go back.

Wonderful experience in an elegant setting, with superb attentive service, and the best steak I've had in years. Definitely worth a visit if you're in downtown St Louis (in sight of the Arch)!

Just walked back the easy block and a half to our hotel from this excellent restaurant. I had the 8 oz. filet special of the evening, a 2-inch thick cut with fine flavor that was enhanced by one of the best sauces I've had, a wine-and-mushroom reduction. Unlike many such sauces, this one was rich and subtle without being overly intense. I dipped the mushroom risotto side dish in the sauce, too.

The coffee was good and tiramisu quite good as well.

Our server, Shannon, was nearly perfect: helpful, friendly and courteous, with a fun sense of humor that was lively and engaging. A refreshing change from servers that are either robotically obsequious or overly intimate.
