About Carmine's - Atlantic City
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. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.

Carmine's - Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews

They should advise that this restaurant is not conducive to couples. Offerings are family style and feed 4 people. An appetizer is $30 - so $15pp and entres are $18 to $30pp if your a couple. Really need to go here with 4 people.

The food was good but pricey for the amount that was given. The service was terrible, it took me 30 minutes to get a glass of water, our food came out before the drinks came, the waitress was not good at all, we even had to wait 30 minutes to get a check. She was more concerned about the next table not signing their check.

We went to Carmine's in Atlantic City before the Ironman 70.3 triathlon. It was FANTASTIC! We were glad to have a reservation and were seated right away. Our server was wonderful. Very quick and very friendly. He explained the portion sizes and made recommendations based on what we were looking for. We had the stuffed mushrooms and spaghetti and meatballs. The portions were perfect for our group and the food was delicious. The server went out of his way to acknowledge one member of our group for her service. It was very thoughtful and quite touching that he had paid so much attention honoring her. I would highly recommend Carmine's in AC to anyone!

It is very annoying to book a reservation at Carmines because they seem to have such limited availability, and when you arrive, the unfriendly hostess makes you wait outside the restaurant even though it is is half empty . That being said, however, the food is so darn good that you forget you vowed never to return. Carmines's salad is a special treat, and the Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesan are not to be missed. Furthermore, Carmine's brand wine is reasonably priced, offered in varied sizes, and delicious. This is a great place to go with large groups and noisy kids because you can't hear what your dining companions are saying anyway. Having dined in Carmines in NYC and Vegas, I am a fan. Come hungry.

Great meal with a bunch of friends getting ready for AC70.3. Our waitress did a fantastic job since we had two teammates with allergy concerns and she recommended certain dishes on the menu that they could have. Awesome dishes we had that night

I would NOT recommend this restaurant even though it was convenient for our event. The hostess was rude and inattentive (chewing on a huge bite of food and literally ignoring us). We ordered the special (four pastas) in which the pasta was mushy and overcooked. The gnocchi did not taste or feel like handmade and the vegetable lasagne was tasteless. The best part of the meal may have been the sangria and bread. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We were so sorry we chose this restaurant for our last evening in Atlantic City. We should have gone to Fornelletto at the Borgata as was recommended.

I had a reservation for 6 on Saturday night, but many other friends wanted too join us, so there were 13 of us. At first we were told over the phone, that we could not be seated until after 10:00 p.m.; when the first 2 of us arrived, we just spoke with one of the young ladies at the front desk. She asked if we could wait until a large group at a round table up front finished and we said "Yes." We waited and were seated immediately and loved every minute of our dinner. Thanks Carmine's for taking care of our last minute request.

The food was, as usual, well prepared and tasty. Having eaten in this restaurant many times over the past six years we have always enjoyed our meal -- weather just the two of us or a larger family gathering of up to 15 people.
On today's occasion however, we fount the table server to be smug and discourteous. We spoke to her and to a supervisor about the manner in which she rolled her eyes when we asked to see a menu at the table.

It was a spur of the moment decision to drive to A/C from seaside park for dinner, so we ate where we could get a same day reservation. What a waste of time and money. Food was pricey and mediocre. Give me a break with the portion size - you're paying for two meals, not one, and getting enough for two. Same goes for the desserts. Fool me once, shame on you, but I won't be back to be fooled again!

I frequent Carmines regularly and it's always fantastic. This was an off night.My veal was burnt and the mozzarella on top was not melted all the way and browned. The pene vodka was bitter and the ravioli was over cooked. Carmines had a bad day but made up by taking things off the bill and wanting to give us complementary desert but the damage was done. I had special guests in from Canada and talked Carmines up. Pretty embarrassing

The only thing that I didn't not like was the chocolate cake, it was around $19 a piece and was thrown out, I didn't like it, boyfriend didn't like it, not even my kids who LOVE chocolate. So that was a waste of money! Other than that...all good.

Love Carmines for a larger group. We had a party of 10 and with the family style portions, the service is prompt and everyone's food comes out together. The food itself is always tasty. Great for a special occasion or party.
