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

Our table was comfortable and we did not feel like anyone was on top of us. We have been to carmines several times and the service this time was a little off. It took forever to get them to take a drink order and the table was never cleared properly. When we left after dessert the bread baskets were still on the table along with several other plates. We also had to find someone to give us silverware to eat dessert with. Maybe it was just an off night because we have never had that problem in the past. All in all the meal was a very good value

Hostesses were friendly and flexible. We were a party of 10 and it wasn't easy getting everyone there. The server was excellent and honest. There was one small mistake on the order, he apologized and remedied it immediately. All back up staff and servers were equally polite, attentive and professional. The food was great and of course the unique family style(code for huge servings) were tasty and fun to pass around and serve each other. It happened to be my Wife's birthday, and the place had a wonderful ambiance for a fun Sunday afternoon dinner, (even with 4 grandchildren). Carmine's is "Old School" ambiance and cuisine..

The server Carmine was excellent and made sure that we had a fabulous dining experience. We love Carmines Atlantic City the best (even though we live 20 miles from Carmines Uptown NYC. Also the desk ladies,maitre D's, reservationists are fabulous too.

Prime Rib special was 36 oz for $36. They cut it into thick chunks/slices so everybody can share it. Came with mushroom sauce on top and spinach underneath. It was the best Prime Rib I've ever had! I ordered it rate to medium rare, so the center would be rare and the ends would be medium rare & it was perfect. The rest of the table enjoyed the chicken Parmesan. We ordered one plate of pasta for everybody to share; and they placed the chicken on top of the pasta. Chicken was very, very, thin, and were 2 large circles that covered the top of the pasta serving dish. Definately NOT a place to go if it's just 2 of you unless you both like the same thing, so you can share one dish. Everything is a la carte.

To shorten the review. It was okay. Food was mediocre, and the service wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. Too expensive for the average experience we had. It probably would be a better experience with a bigger group. I probably won't go back.

When we were told about the specials we were never told the prices of those specials. We ordered the prime rib not knowing that the cost was $100. I think it was left out so she could boost up the bill amount and get a bigger tip.

It was perfect for us, we had a party of 11 on oct 14th at 3:15 pm. I think our servers name was mark not sure but he was patient and helpful which we needed as first time customers. We would most definitely do it again

We wen to Carmine's for my only daughter's bachelorette party. Since there was 6 of us,
we thought it would be a great value and we knew we would have delicious food! Neither disappointed. Our food was fresh, hot, plentiful and authentic. Our server Debbie was prompt, and very personable! This was our second visit to Carmine's but definitely not our last!

Was seated by kitchen . Doors opening and closing , very annoying and loud. Restaurant loud enough , without that. Asked to be moved, they said another 15 minutes. Had a reservation and had to wait 15 minutes before. We were all hungry by then, so we stayed as we had no choice by then .

Truly polite staff from the start! We had the Saturday specials, salad and steak which was awesome. Traditionally we order pasta, however we tried something new and it was great. We ate the tugboat ice cream sundae like four kids in a candy store. Sooooo good!

I've been to Carmines numerous times and I have to say this time I was disappointed. The services was slow and where they sat us was in the back (dark) and for it not being as busy as usual they could have given us better seating.

Food was excellent as always, but service was the worse I have experienced. Our party of 6 was seated and there was no silverware on table and we waited 15 minutes before we even got asked for our drinks. We noticed that our server was catering to a table next to us like maybe they were friends and even over heard him say he was paying for there desert. If you would like to talk further my cell is 570-574-9084 leave msg and I'll call you back .

Reservations highly recommended! The food was fantastic. The atmosphere is a little hectic, but it keeps things moving quickly. Great spot, just not for a romantic dinner for 2. If you have a large party, the family style dishes are fantastic. We had a group of 3, and there were enough leftovers for each of us!

I have been to Carmines several times and every time it is perfect!! Service, food and overall experience. Everyone is very friendly and I love the on line reservations/open seating.
I have eaten at both locations in NY and in AC and love them all and so does my family.
I cannot imagine what you could improve to make it better but I am sure you will find a way!
Thanks to a great experience and delicious food every time!!
Mark, Wendy and Family:)

Carmine's was great BUT the amount of food is HUGE. Best to have at least a party of four. We (2 people) had the Caesar Salad which was yummy BUT could feed a family of 8. Hence, the high price. We shared an order of capellini with meatballs. Again, yummy, BUT could feed a hungry family of four (6 giant meatballs). We would have liked to have tried a couple other items, but really not possible with the HUGE quantities given and the pricing. The pasta dish was enjoyed the following day but salad just doesn't do well the next day. Would we go back? Definitely!!!

Excellent food and service. Only complaint was a bachelor party of at least 30 and then a bachelorette party of at least 30 the room was a little loud!
We will be back loved both the specials for the night as well.
