Pre/post Theatre
Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. Restaurateur Artie Cutler crafted Carmine's with a singular vision; bringing his guests “wow-factor” sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast.

Platters of made to order antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing among friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!

Good family place, definitely not for couples. Food was good, but not as great as it used to be!

On Sunday, February 23rd, 2020, I brought and treated my wife and myself for dinner at the wonderful Carmine’s Italian restaurant to celebrate our Happy Two Year Wedding Anniversary!!!

Our meals was superb and delicious and we received great service while dining at Carmine’s.

The Carmine’s Italian Restaurant paid a huge role in making sure that our Happy Two Year Wedding Anniversary was an absolutely outstanding experience!!!

The food as always was great! Service was very friendly but extremely sporadic. We had to flag down our waitress if we wanted anything outside of our ordered food (i.e more water for the table, extras cheese, etc.)

Atmosphere feels extremely rushed, with tight spaces and loud volumes. I think someone ran into my chair (I was at the end of the table) about 20 times. We did not feel comfortable sitting long after the meal, as we were rushed out the door, but it is clear they need to seat a lot of tables each night. It took us at least 5 minutes to even get in the door to the hostess stand to check in.

Don’t come here for a relaxing meal, but do come if you want quality, family style food and yummy leftovers!

We were unanimous in our praise for all aspects of our dining experience. We are already planning on returning with a considerably larger group. I only regret not having dined at Carmine's much sooner.

This has become one of my favourite places to dine in New York! The food is delicious, all the pastas and dishes are made fresh. The concept is family style sharing and the portion sizes are huge, so make sure you order accordingly. The ambiance is great and the restaurant has an old world charm that makes you feel as if Frank Sinatra is going to walk through the doors at any given moment. They also have great cocktails as well.

Chicken parm was excellent. The dishes are served family style so take a group and enjoy 3-4 wonderful dishes. The desert “the titanic” is an unbelievable site and a challenge for 6 people to eat!

Had 5:30 PM reservation. Was not seated until 6:05 PM. You are sent to a corner of the room to stand with 50 other people waiting for a table. It was hot and crowded in the wait area (part of which is used for dining so you are inches from diners trying to eat.) Food was good but not worth the long wait time.

Portions are too large for 2 people. 1/2 platters should be made available.

Not everyone can bring leftovers with them...

I go to Carmine’s a couple of times a year when I meet my high school friends for our annual Broadway show and amazing meal at Carmine’s. We are never disappointed! Everything from the bread to the appetizers and the delicious main dishes are absolutely phenomenal. Service is always great and the ambience is wonderful. The last time we went we had the most amazing pitcher of sangria. Our waiter dressed up every single glass with fruit and it was absolutely delicious and topped off the entire meal! If you’re in New York City, do not miss going to Carmine’s!

Very disappointing experience, we arrived at 11pm and checked in and they told us to wait at the bar. Which was completely ok since our reservations were at 11:30pm. However, it was 11:34pm and still waiting. We went to check on the status of our reservation and it appears they forgot about us. No apology from the host only from our waiter, he was nice and apologetic. I don’t plan on ever returning or recommending this restaurant.

When we arrived, the table had been reserved - which was just as well, as the place was really busy (it was a Friday night). We saw a couple of orders going past and were blown away at the size of the dishes & portions. The waitress was extremely helpful and made sure we knew the best way to order. The place was quite noisy but it all added to the atmosphere. No need for starters and probably best to share a main course .... and a dessert, if you could manage a dessert! Good food and great service. I'd definitely recommend to others.
