Carmine's

Carmine’s invites you to experience an unforgettable meal with authentic Italian recipes passed down from generation to generation. A true cosmopolitan hangout located in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, Carmine’s offers live entertainment, an extensive bar, and an outdoor café* that is the place to see and be seen from sun up to sun down.

Whether dining al fresco* or inside the elegant two level dining room, even the most demanding taste buds will be overjoyed by Carmine’s impressive menu selections. Signature dishes include clams and oysters on the half shell, steaks and chops grilled to perfection, melt-in-your-mouth veal and chicken dishes, and of course generous portions of award-winning pastas. From the moment you are seated and served, you’ll understand why Carmine’s is packed with food aficionados every night of the week. We're now open for Saturday & Sunday brunch!

*Unfortunately, we DO NOT accept reservations for the outdoor patio garden.

"We sat in a section off to the side, almost like an indoor porch. There were metal heaters on the ceiling that would turn on and off. So the temperature went between really hot to nearly freezing cold when they were turned off. It was pouring rain outside and there must have been leaks in the ceiling because we both continued to get dripped on during our dinner. I have eaten at Carmine's before and have always sat in the actual restaurant area, where the atmosphere is nice, the lighting is darker. We were there with reservations for a special occasion from out of town and specifically chose that place for the food and ambiance. Our server was great, she was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The whitefish was very good, but we also ordered a seafood pasta which was mostly noodles. Overall we were not impressed with the place this time. The atmosphere and mediocre food do not warrant a $180 meal. This is a place I have come to year after year, but most likely will not return again after this experience."

"Last Saturday we celebrated my boyfriends birthday & recent promotion. I booked the table through the website and had no troubles, a hostess called me the day of to confirm the reservation, she was very nice. I requested to have split checks and the owner George spoke to me and confirmed he was able to do this. The server was excellent, always around and on top of everything. The food was delicious and so was the tiramisu cake! Overall, it was a great dining experience and the staff and George are excellent!"

"Absolutely loved this place before! But now that the piano is upstairs TOTALLY CHANGED the ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE this gem once had! I would travel over one hour few times a year just to come listen to romantic music played and sung on piano in a beautiful huge open downstairs bar area. Now.... Noisy confined and VERY UNROMANTIC upstairs!!!!!! Felt like a typical ordinary family restaurant and not the GEM it once was.....
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CHANGE THE RESTAURANT BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS!
Soooooo sadddddd ..... Not sure i will return.

"My business partner and I were in town for a training class and I was going to go to the Rosebud on Taylor as I have been there many times. I was that Carmines was operated by the same group and decided to try it instead. Made a reservation for 8:00 PM and was seated immediately. Food was EXCELLENT and the service would have been except for the noise level and the server mis-heard my partners order and brought out a large pork dish, he does not eat pork. It was quickly rectified and the Veal Picatta was among the best I have ever had. Will certainly return when in Chicago again."

"The lasagna was warm not hot. They brought out the bread without butter. When we asked for more bread part way through the meal they again brought out the bread without butter. For dessert we ordered the mile high chocolate cake. 2 minutes later the waiter came back and said they were out. We then ordered the raspberry french silk pie. It was very good. However, when our check came they charged us for both desserts. I would go back simply for the food. However, I would hope for much improved service."

"Reserved a table for 7, on time for reservation, sent to a table for 6 & told they would add another setting at the end-way too crowded of an area for 7, requested we be moved told they would put us at a round table taken to long tables but did accommodate out groups size.
Restaurant loud, had to get check before dessert was served bc part of the party had to catch a train. There from 6:25-8:25, celebrating a retirement/noted on reservation. No mention of it, no dessert or anything special offered."

"We stopped in not knowing how this place works. Maitre D looked at us, said one hour and walked away. We later found out he doesn't write any names down as he can remember who's next. Sat at the bar and was entertained by the older bartender til our table came. Food was great."

"In Chicago for a couple of days for fun and received a recommendation from a friend to visit Carmine's. We were not disappointed! Our waitress Goldie was awesome-she helped with our dinner selections-penne ala vodka with some added spicy sausage-delicious! My husband had the wagon wheel pasta with bolegnese sauce-also delicious. Would definitely recommend to others."
