My boss had our Christmas party here and we all fell in love with this Italian treat. The decor was beautiful inside and outside and they had Christmas lights and ribbons in the outside patio. The hostess was very bubbly and sweet and seated our party of 60. We had the private elevated dining room which was great and we also had our own servers. The salads were portioned well, the stuffed mushrooms were tastey, and my Salmon was cooked to perfection with the most delicious sauce. The cocktail prices were reasonable and the service was quick and pleasant considering it was busy and we had 60 people. Oh, and don't forgot to try the Vesuvius cake! Would definitely recommend this place and will be back soon with my family!
My fiancé and I had lunch here last week. It was my second time here and his first time. Our server, Tom, was excellent and very attentive to our needs! We had the bruschetta, the fried mozzerella, and a delicious spaghetti and sundried tomato dish that I'm having trouble recalling the name of...all the food was excellent! The pasta was al dente, everything tasted fresh and was well prepared. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. The old music and the lanterns and green curtains really make the place cozy. It was only 2pm when we went but it felt like a date! I would always recommend Carmine's to any man who wants to impress a lady!
Hubby took me here for my birthday. I have to say I love the food! It was really good. The only thing is that I went for my birthday; my husband wanted to surprise me by telling the hostess that he would signal her when she should bring over the cake...she completely forgot, I could see my husbands frustration. He finally had to make a very obvious gesture so that she could remember to bring over the cake. I noticed everything since I already now my husbands face for 14 years lol! Poor baby!! So remember, if it's for a birthday party, go like three time to the "bathroom" and remind the hostess. Other than that, pretty good!
I'm sure the service there is good for some people because there were several customers that came in after us, but that were served before us. We waited a long time for everything! He forgot our check for about 10 minutes until he saw me getting up to leave! The food is good, but very expensive! My husband had a beer, we shared calamari, and had our entrees. With tip the bill was $86! With horrible service I don't expect to pay that much.
Had lunner with elderly mom and 10 yo son. Atmosphere classy traditional with just the right touch of modern. diverse staff, everyone we interacted with was professional...We were lucky to get the chef's table, awesome view of the place, cozy in the right place.Food had a homemade taste. Carpaccio was well served, Risotto was comfy food fit for a small entree. Mom had chicken parm, tasted as good as it looked.Wil go again.
I ate here with my family while visiting Miami this Christmas. I ordered the fried calamari and the spaghetti carbonara and they were both wonderful! The waiter was not very keen on when the waters needed to be refilled, but other than that the service was nice. The view was astounding and I was shocked at how well they transformed the area from what it used to be in the late 90's. I would definitely go again.
I visited Carmine's for my wife birthday and I was very pleasantly surprise of such delicious Italian food right in Kendall .The service was fantastic,the view outside was absolutely beautiful ,and lastly the manager knew it was my wife birthday and they actually had a opera singer sing her a song (beautiful morning) it was a magical night indeed,highly recommend it.
Awesome! Yes, I read from the other reviewers that the place is a bit noisy, but that is Italians for you. I am married to one, I should know. But they are down to earth people who love to have fun, cook and eat, and be loud! The food is delicious! I have never eaten at a restaurant where I eat slowly just to savor every bite! The service is great!
The last 2-3 times we have been displeased. The food quality and quantity has changed. The price has remained the same but the portions are much smaller. I have two teenage boys and they leave still hungry. The quality is also lacking with soggy noodles. We found Anacapri which is great and gives better deals. I won't be going here AGAIN.
I have been to Carmines 3 times already and every time I go it's very enjoyable . the atmosphere is great they usually have live music every weekend and the restaurant venue is absolutely beautiful and very romantic. The food is very tasty and the service was excellent. Will definitely continue to come here to eat with my family and friends!
