This is a family style restaurant so it is best to go with more than 2 people. Portions are large and the food is delicious. I have been twice and will make sure I go every time I visit New York. Well worth the trip

The reason I rated this average was mainly due to the fact that the waiter did not tell us the price of the evening's special and when we got the bill we found out it was $89.95! The veal chop was good, but not that...More

Fun place, especially with big groups. You're not pushed out like some places, but it's super loud. Too loud for me. But some might like it that way. Terrific wait staff.

Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

I don't know. Why don't you call and ask?
I would like to order in a buffet dinner for 20 students end of January. I see you have meat lasagna; do you have a vegetarian option as well? I am trying to figure out a one-plate eat-on-your-lap buffet menu that includes salad/main and perhaps a side vegetable. Any suggestions appreciated.

Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. Located in a sprawling, former grand ballroom on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, this is the original Carmines. Designed by Peter Niemitz, the interiors evoke the images of the quintessential New York restaurant. With elements and details from the 1920s to the 1940s, the restaurant has the look and feel of a place that has been around for much longer than it's 1990 opening. If you are in the market for freshly prepared family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.
