Complete with large fireplaces, impressive stonework, exposed wood beams and the traditional Italian fare to match, the new Carmine's is truly an experience for all of your senses.

Carmine's Rosemont is a true Italian treat where you walk in as friends but you leave as family.

It was our first time experiencing this restaurant and we were disappointed. It didn't feel like an Italian restaurant. The quality of the food was not worth the price. Food was lacking flavor. Some parts of our meals were brought out late which also didn't help with the flavor issue. We will not be returning.

Important business meal. Food was very good but service wasn’t great. Server totally forgot a side dish and drinks were slow in coming. And they weren’t very busy.

The food and service were wonderful.
The noise from jets overhead on the patio is quite annoying.
I do not recommend outdoor seating at this location.

Hi,

I was very disappointed. I emailed saying that was my birthday and nothing happened. Mu husband told the waitress that was my birthday and nothing. The food was very average for the price. A very expensive brunch.

We booked the reservation a week in advance for a birthday dinner. We waited beyond the reservation time despite arriving a bit early. Then we were seated next to the kitchen. We purchased dessert- no candle, no singing nothing. The food was over priced and not amazing.

This was my second time dining in at the Rosemont location . I wasn’t as pleased with my visit this time . We had reservations at 8:30 and we didn’t get seated until 8:50 for a table of 4 . When we got seated it took the server 10 mins to tend to us . She had taken our drink and appetizers also entree orders. It took another 10-15 minutes to finally receive our drinks and additional 10 mins for our 3 appetizers to arrive. This waiting time was ridiculous. Our 4 entrees arrived 25 min after our appetizers. After our entrées we ordered 2 desserts and that took another 15 mins to arrive . In total it took us 3hrs just to be fully serviced . I’ve never experienced this type of wait time dining in at Carmine’s in downtown Chicago. Our server only checked on us twice while other servers were bringing our food . I was really disappointed with the service .

The food was phenomenal and our server was awesome, even though it was only her second day working at Carmine’s. However, due to the loudness of the live music being played in the bar, we asked to be seated outside. It was chilly that night and the overhead heaters weren’t throwing out much warmth and the fireplace was so smoky our clothes reeked.

Food was good. Love the Eggplant Stack. I am puzzled as to why the hostess chose to place all the dining groups in tight formation rather than spread them out. People were on top of each other when they really didn't need to be. Service was good. Also the Taylor Street platter is a great way for a group to check out many offerings.

There were 5 in our party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. We started with cocktails and appetizers. Sausage and peppers & Calamari. Delicious!
All our dinners were amazing. Lamb chops, skirt steak, Chilean Bass & Orecchiette. Perfectly prepared.
Our Waiter was patient, personable and funny. Will definitely be back. Great place

Bad service and overly priced food that is mediocre at best. Went there on a date with my husband. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. We asked to move tables after 2 minutes because we were at a small table and barely had enough room to move without bumping our neighbors. But even worse, the noise level in the outdoor area was ridiculous. Even though we were at a small table we couldn’t hold a conversation because we couldn’t hear each other over the surrounding noise. Once we asked to be moved we were seated quickly at a nice table inside. Our drink orders were taken and delivered quickly but then our waiter didn’t come back for 25 minutes and we had somewhere else to be. It was so off putting that we almost paid for our drinks and left. Just as we were about to get up the waiter came back and apologized. Once our orders were placed, our food came quickly. The food is nothing to rave about, especially for the price. The meal was totally forgettable. We will not be going back to Carmine’s.

The food is always good. The problem with this visit was that we were seated under a fan and frequently got dripped on. Not a huge deal since it was a small amount, but we told 3 employees (including the manager) about it and not one person offered a solution. We asked manager to turn off fan, thinking that would help but he sluffed over our request and kept the fan on. It was pretty annoying and surprising.

food was excellent as was the ambience. have been to the sister "rosebud" restaurants, and although everything is excellent, loved this place more. my only issue--we got there at 615p on a friday the service was excellent until every table was filled, then it was a tad slow getting the bill. which, again due to how busy, was not surprising. also on friday they have entertainment in the bar so it is louder than normal. overall excellent and highly recommend. both of the issues i stated would NOT stop me from returning again and again.

I made a reservation for Carmine's at Rosemont for my wife's birthday. Initially, I have dined at Rosebud in the Tri-Taylor neighborhood growing up in the 90's. Since I have had moderate experiences at Rosebud Tri_Tayor, I now live closer to the Carmines at Rosemont (so I decided to give it a chance). This will the last time I will ever dine at Carmine's at Rosemont (or in general). The "waiter" took at least 15 minutes to asks us for drinks. We sat by the bar and saw our drinks ready (it took another 15 minutes to receive them) and we were about 2 feet from the bar. There were people that were seated after us and who drinks and food was served before us. I usually have moderate expectations for Rosebud affiliated restaurant, but this experience was horrible. I order that lobster ravioli and they were served cold. I rather have gone to Olive Garden for 1/3 of the price (the food would of tasted better and the service excellent-compared to Carmines service). I had to flag down one of the managers to get the bill and just leave. I obtained the bill in minutes. Also, if I was only eating there with friends or alone, I would not really mind waiting (but it was for my wife's birthday. I rather celebrate somewhere where over $200.00 for good food and fair service (like a better know steakhouse) or pay less at a lower tier restaurant for humble service and decent food.
