"Food was delicious!! Service was adequate, but not amazing by any means.
1/2 price wine on Sundays will keep me coming back!

"We made reservations and asked for a quieter area ... we were given an upstairs corner table with a window view ... very nice. Our servers were very prompt, the courses were timed nicely (coming in well-timed succession and not one on top of another), the food was well prepared and very tasty. All-in-all, we had a very pleasurable experience. We would eat here again and would recommend Carmen's Cafe to others!"

"I come here often and it is always a good time. The food and service is the best and the wait staff is friendly. I had the chicken angel, which I get a lot and of course, it was wonderful, maybe a little too much, though.
I will always recommend Carmens Cafe.

"Please, please turn up the lighting. We couldn't see each other from across the table and for sure could not read the menu because the room was so dark."

"The food at Carmen's Cafe is amazing. Steaks that literally need no knife. Lasagna is excellent. Wine options are very good. Staff was friendly and attentive, but not overly interactive. I would recommend this place to everyone, and often do."
