The service and our waiter was excellent. The lobster bites were delicious. Our filet’s were flavorful but not cooked correctly. We both ordered them medium. They were cooked medium well/well done. My husband ordered the 10 oz and I ordered the 8 ounce but they looked to be the same size?

Excellent service offset by below average steaks . Ribeye and strip were not prime, cut too thin and consequently came overdone. One of two filets we ordered came too rare and needed to be sent back to the kitchen. This restaurant did not match the reviews and should be avoided.

The quality of the food was subpar. We were unable to finish our food and enjoy the evening. From the reviews we thought the food would be of better quality. However our steak was not cook correctly the chicken was bland and the overall presentation was lacking. Highly disappointed.

Everything from the service to the food was great. Amazing cocktails. The steaks were perfectly cooked and the toasted raviolis were amazing. Along with the house made mushroom risotto. This place actually seemed like a bargain compared to other top end steak houses I’ve enjoyed in the past. Will be back again.

Our waiter (Oz) was on his game. He made our 25th anniversary that much more enjoyable with his humor and kind conversation. Very attentive wait-staff and our entrees (Filet Mignon and Chicken) were perfectly prepared. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our visit. I made 4 pm reservations as i wasn’t sure how early or quickly they’d be getting busy. We were the only diners in the building for much of our meal. It was very peaceful, the food was good, and we’d recommend friends to visit.

I order the 20oz ribeye I can not be more pleased with how it tasted and cut. And the jalapeño algrotin potatoes were my favorite. Thank you so much for a great night I loved surprising my husband for his birthday.

Rude wait staff. I emailed management about the unfair treatment I received while dining. No response back from the restaurant after 2 weeks. Very dissapointed.

Marc, I apologize, we only have one review on 5/8 from a "Michael W" We never received an email from you. Our email address is Carminessteakhouse@att.net I even checked the spam folder in case it went there and I have nothing from you. We have four managers on the floor on Saturday nights checking on tables that you could have complained to. Your problem would have been addressed that night.

We dined on a Saturday evening at Carmine's and our reservation was spot on. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was what I expected from what I had heard. We had a porterhouse, shrimp scampi, and chicken modera. All done right. We tried frog legs for the first time and I'll gave them again if I ever make it back there.

My two kids and I, took my mother to Carmine's for Mother's Day. All four of our meals were delicious! We shared the Lobster Bites as an appetizer. They were very flavorful. For dinner, Mom enjoyed the Jumbo Shrimp Scampi, which she said was the best she has ever had. My daughter picked a medium-well 8 ounce Filet Mignon, and my son selected a medium-well 14 ounce Prime NY Strip. Both commented it was the best steak ever. I ordered the catch of the day, a Sea Bass. The fish was fresh, and very well prepared! This was an overall great dining experience. BTW, the Smokey Old Fashion was amazing!

I understand it was a little after 9 when we arrived. I get it. It was late in the shift. An hour before close. I get it. But... tell us you have a limited menu. Tell us the steak we ordered you are out of. Tell us it’s going to be an extended wait time. We would have gladly ordered something else or simply had a drink and appetizer, then left. Don’t make us wait until 10:30 to bring the steaks out. Don’t give us some lame excuse about the manager left early and there’s nothing you can do about the poor service. We paid the $200 tab with a 20% tip, and went on our way. I won’t go back.

Was a business traveler dining alone. They weren’t busy at all and it appeared that the waiter was preoccupied and not giving me the full service attention other tables were getting. Food was good, steak a little under, could have sent back but just wanted to eat and get back to hotel

In from out of town and made a fantastic call by choosing Carmines! For starters, our server, Sabrina, was fantastic -- highly recommend you ask for her. Excellent drink menu; a cauliflower side dish special like nothing I've ever had before; perfectly cooked rib eye. All three of us who went give it a thumbs up.
