Will always be our favorite restaurant!
Bananas fosters was the best I’ve ever had !
Very pleased with our evening at Carbone's. Great service Scott and Jeremy!
Wonderful food. Its easy to see why Carbone's has been a staple in CT for so long. Would definitely recommend the restaurant to all. Nice treat.
Took a friend who was down out for a birthday dinner, and they were very happy and pleased with the service and was on cloud 9 of how good the food was!
Superb food and service EVERY TIME.
The seafood pasta fra diavlo was amazing.
We celebrated my wife's birthday and had an outstanding time. When we first entered the building, there were a lot of people waiting to be seated so we thought we would have to wait a long time. We only waited a couple minutes to be seated for our reservation.
Our server was very nice. My martini was excellent. The calamari was and is always the best around. Our dinners were excellent and served hot.
Overall, my wife really enjoyed her birthday dinner. Carbone's is always an excellent value.
Awesome food, great service. Waiter had great recommendations, not rushed
Great birthday lunch. The entire meal was wonderful. The fried calamari were light and crispy and a great start to the meal. The grilled octopus was spectacular as was the pasta bolognese. The best part of the meal however was the old fashioned with the their own bourbon that they age in house. Best ever.
We had a bad culinary experience on Saturday evening. Our reservations were for 7:00 and we were not seated until 7:30. When we did sit down WE ASKED about specials and was told that they had quite a few but they were all sold out ??? It was 7:30 !
While that is completely not acceptable, we moved on and ordered off the menu. The quality of the 4 entrees were so poorly prepared that we felt like we were at a diner. All of the entrees had the same side dishes, rock hard Brussel Sprouts with a sickening Maple Syrup sauce and poorly cooked Potatoes. The quality of the Rib Eye, Filet Mignonette, Duck Breast were average at best.
Tableside Caesar Salad was great as was the Bananas Foster.
They have taken a giant step backwards from a Culinary perspective...there are many choices for fine Italian food in the Hartford area rather then Carbone’s
Another outstanding meal and tremendous service
at Carbone’s. Always look forward to travel to Hartford so I can visit Carbone’s!
Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. The food is beyone delicious. They go out of their way to make you feel special.
I definitely would. The service was very good and professional, they were able to answer any questions you had about the food without asking the kitchen. Table-side cooking was entertaining and a throw back to fine dining of an era gone by. The octopus appetizer and the spinach salad were great. Our entrees topped it off with spectacular flavor. We'll be back to try more. Highly recommend.
Great meal, great service! We tried this restaurant for the first time and were very impressed.
We have frequently had 2 gentlemen as waiters. They were excellent. The waitress that we had this time was good but not excellent. She did cover all of the bases and provided everything on time but didn't seem to have the chemistry that the gentlemen on the right side of the restaurant had.
We enjoy Carbone's and use it for all our special celebrations - plus regular times. Food and service is excellant
Always a wonderful experience at Carbones! Outstanding food, phenomenal service. The value is unmatched!
great food great service from server Scott R. Very accommodating making veal marsala although not on the menu that evening. Excellent
The food and service was outstanding once again!!
Amazing food and service! This had to be a regular stop on your monthly calendar.
Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience which was surprising. I made the reservation three weeks in advance for a special occasion, four of us dining. They sat us in the bar area they called the library.... loud music, pop music, and not pleasant at all. I asked if we could move to the dining area and was told no availability and no one even had entree’s yet. The wait staff was great and the food was great but extremely disappointing and embarrassing for me considering it was supposed to be quiet, nice soft music.. Italian we hoped... and it was a special occasion. I was very unhappy with the experience.
Food was fabulous as usual! Caesar salad done tableside! And had the special seafood fra Diablo just can’t say enough about our very special dinner. Wait staff friendly, and oh so accommodating!
Wonderful meal !
Food was excellent one of the best dinners I have ever had.
We had a lovely meal with excellent service. We had two of the specials. Yum. And we couldn't resist dessert. Very pleasant.
It was a fine visit. My comments are meant to be instructive. The clams casino was a huge disappointment . We are used to making them quite simply ourselves and these were a combination of too many flavors. The fried calamari was fine. The The Manzo Wornoff meat was delicious but the accompanying potatoes were just slightly warm and the asparagus was terribly overcooked.
A quality restaurant that has stood the test of time. Fettuccine carbonara is the best in the world. Veal chop was extraordinary. When we came back to CT for a visit, had to come here. A classic.
Loved the entire dining experience. Staff was very attentive. Food and choices were excellent. Strongly recommend and will most certainly make this a "regular go to" .
An old classic, it has lasted this long for a reason. Solid food and excellent service in a nostalgic environment. Worth the trip.
The food was wonderful! The bread was delicious, the soup tasty and our entrees were divine. The waiter was very pleasant, but seemed to have too many tables as we had to wait for him to appear a few times. We never had to ask to have pur water glasses filled.
We look forward to dinging at Carbone’s again.
Food and service was great. I love the old school Italian vibe. Only complaint: it's a bit ridiculous when spend hundreds on food/drink for a party of 5 to celebrate a birthday to charge me $3/pp to cut my own cake that I brought in for the special occasion. Was the 2 minutes of time for the server cutting really worth my $15?!? Just makes the restaurant feel cheap... if you have a large party for celebration I would think twice about coming here. Otherwise, for a night on the town, it's a good choice.
The meal was lovely - service impeccable. I'm not sure why we let 20 years slip by before we returned. We certainly will be back much sooner this time around.
Great-as always :)
Great ! Enjoyed the dinner and the dessert .. Personal I think they need more choices ..
Amazing food. Scott our waiter was Fabulous! We had dinner with great friends. A nice couples gathering! Can’t wait to come back! Food was Spectacular! Overall Amazing Evening!
Went to Carbone’s primo. Loved it. Pork chop was awesome.
