Arrived early and tried to get a drink at the bar. The bar was full of people eating at it. Bartenders did not look beyond the seated people and servers passing by did ignored us also. If we didn’t have reservations we would have walked out. Server at our table wasn’t personable and used our cocktail napkin to wipe table from spilled drinks and then put our drinks on the wet napkin. The woman greeting our table was very nice
Food was great, service just as good! Drinks were a little sub par but overall great and definitely will be back
Booth was by the bar and it was loud...that is why ambience is rated at a 3...rather be in the dining area. The waitress was great and the food was very good. We had a great time with our friends.
Great place ! I highly recommend it. We will be back. I have a special diet and they were very accommodating. Food was delicious and perfect.
Always a delicious meal with great service
Fantastic! Vinnie and his team are spectacular!!
Four of us went out Sunday for my wife's Birthday. Went in bar and by the time we got our drinks had three different waitstaff. I ordered a Blue Moon and what I got was a flat beer in a highball glass. After I said something I was given a fresh one that was more palatable. I was informed that the keg just kicked. I'll let the rest of the night elude me.
Had a Anniversary dinner and our food was great! Our waitress was pleasant but she complained about having to get something from the back kitchen to make a drink for my husband to people at another table. Guess she thought we didn’t hear her or she wanted us to hear her. She never brought out bread to us saying that there was no more but we clearly saw that another table received it from her. Never ever been treated that way before in this restaurant. How sad.
The people are so friendly. The food was good but I would say outstanding. The appetizers were limited as were th sides that come with the dinners. I love Brussels sprouts but they are everywhere.
Service and food are always good at Carbones Prime! Love the beef short rib! The eggplant parm is sliced super thin and is just delicious! The wedge salad is really special.
Very nice dining atmosphere. Great menu selection with steaks the specialty. Very good drink selection. Staff very hospitable and pleasant. Allergy friendly kitchen!
Delicious food, great service. Favorite place to go for a special occasion meal!
We went because we love the pork chop Milanese and were disappointed that it wasn’t on the menu anymore. Happy to say that the chef made us chicken Milanese which was almost as good. Hopefully the pork Milanese will be back on the menu soon.
I never received the polenta croutons on my salad, despite requesting them. The cannoli cake description was misleading and I definitely did not expect peanut butter and chocolate..... expecting more of a traditional cannoli cake and the dessert was not very good. The main dishes were good , however the apple chips on the ravioli were not great. Honestly, I expected more from Carbones as I have been to the Hartford location and it has always been exceptional.
Contrived and pricy. Service was great, entire restaurant is loud. I will not be back
Food and whole experience was great. We will be back.
Everything was fabulous! The greeting from the host staff, our server and especially the food. Can't wait to return!
Exquisite food and service! We recommend for a special occasion and just for a romantic dinner! Kim B.
Creative, delicious, housemade menu options + friendly, attentive service + comfortable, hip atmosphere = a perfect lunch date with a friend, loved one or business associate!
Thé rib-eye was tasty but had a lot of nerv so not so happy with this but my halibut was very good, we were disappointed with the steak and no onion soup ?
Food was delicious and Nate was great! Attentive and polite!
Had an excellent meal with my fiancé here. Service was great. The calamari was awesome. I definitely will be back again.
got the seafood Fra Diablo it was out of this word, had a few special requests due to dietary reasons, everything was done perfectly!!! It was truly one of the best meals I have ever had!!!
This is the second time I have been to this restaurant for lunch....food was ok...service was slow considering restaurant was not busy at 1:30 on a mid-week day....I would probably go back - but menu needs to be reworked - limited lunch time choices for someone trying to eat healthy
I have been to Carbone's Prime several times. I met my daughter this past week, on a Wednesday evening. Our service was just O.K. The food was disappointing for me, although my daughter enjoyed her Ravioli. I was looking forward to Penne Gustavo, which I've had several times. This time, the pasta looked like the dish had been put in the oven. The cream sauce looked like it was heated and they had put a crunchy topping on it. Also, it was way more spicy than I remembered. I didn't send it back because I did not want to have an issue with my meal while I was dining with my daughter. We had cappuccino and the pumpkin cheese cake which was excellent.. so a positive ending to the meal. It was just that Past Gustavo that was the major disappointment.
Awesome!!! Everything was superb!! Service was excellent.
First time there and it was excellent. Best chicken parmigiana I have ever had
Slow service. Completely scammed with a ‘promotion’. Was told table would be ready in 10 minutes. Took 45 and nobody bothered to check in with us and give us an update. Experience not worth the money.
The menu on line is not the menu that they have in the restaurant. Both dishes that I was hoping to order were not on the menu even though they were on the menu that day and on line the following day.
For example, I was looking forward to ordering the Pan Roasted Duck, pomegranite gastric, duck fat potatoes, frisee salad, bourbon cherries. I still ordered the duck -- the skin on the duck was not crisp at all and it came with a few dabs of cauliflower mash and a few outer raw leaves of a brussel sprout -- REALLY! It was not a good dish at all.
The other dish I wanted to order was a stuffed veal marsala -- not on the in house menu at all and nothing close to the dish .
It was the first time at Carbone Prime and it will be the last.
Dinner was absolutely great until we tried to pay our bill with a Halloween dinner email offer that would not be honored. Very disappointed in their decision.
Our steaks were delicious as were the fingerling potatoes and asparagus spears. Everything was clean and quiet, and our server was pleasant and efficient. The gelato is so good! Particularly love the ambiance of the smooth jazz standards. Perfect!
Penne Gustavo: few pieces of chicken tasted like they were left overs, not fresh.
Eggplant parm was bland and for the price, expected hand made pasta
Went for a birthday dinner for my fiancé. We’ve gone to many fine dining restaurants. Carbone’s prime was absolutely outstanding in every way. Perfect in all aspects. Started off with wine, fresh mussels, amazing. So fresh we ordered a second. For dinner, they made me a special request being I’m a vegetarian, I had mushroom risotto it was outstanding. Salad were delicious, my fiancé went with the burger he said one of the beets he’s ever had! Can’t wait to go again.
Everything was perfect! Server Nate was amazing. The atmosphere is wonderful. We both ordered the short ribs, freaking unbelievable! Not sure I will ever order any other meal! Can’t wait to return!
The service was great - they were very accommodating with our seating request and to make up for misunderstanding in our order. Our server was fantastic. The meal was very good - no complaints!
Will return and recommend.
Food was excellent at a price I would expect for the value. Our server was extraordinarily helpful and well mannered. We had a great time.
Great front desk staff and table service; they were on the ball. Hearty meal portions. Food just so so. Most memorable was the short ribs and octopus. Pizza was dull. Not up to the caliber of the Hartford or Bloomfield restaurants yet prices are. Very noisy Thurs/Fri nights.
Everything was great!
