    Wonderful dinner experience for wedding rehearsal

    I've eaten at Carmine's plenty of times, but recently reserved and used one of their private dining rooms for a wedding rehearsal. We reached out a few months before the wedding and received plenty of information on our options for reserving rooms and picking a menu. We arrived Friday night at 7pm (same night as a Capitals game) and the restaurant was PACKED and loud, but they took us right to our reserved room where we could close the door, which kept it nice and quiet for our families to interact. The tables were already set, and they had printed out menus based on our selections. Our main server greeted us when we came in, and was wonderful to work with for the evening. Our room was reserved for 3 hours, and they brought in appetizers, entrees, and desserts at a great pace to keep the evening moving. Our server even asked us if we wanted the music in the room turned up or down. The food was amazing and everyone was very pleased and full. We had a lot of leftovers, which they happily boxed up for us when we were finished. The room was a comfortable size and had plenty of decorations and finishing. It was a wonderful, comfortable experience to get our wedding weekend started. I'd highly recommend them for private dining or as a regular diner!

    Outstanding service. Staff was exceptionally easy to work with. Food came out hot and plentiful. We had a lot if left overs and were staying in a hotel. We asked the management if they would hold the food a few days until Sunday. They gladly did so much to our satisfaction.

    Carmine's party planner and manager gave us excellent advise and were very hands on so the hosts could enjoy the evening.

    We got rave reviews by our guests on the food and service.

    We did our Rehearsal Dinner at Carmine's in the DaVinci private room and it was amazing! Kathleen and her staff made sure to accommodate all of our requests and all of our guests said it was the best rehearsal dinner they have ever been too. The bar service was fantastic and the food was abundant and delicious! I loved the table set-up in the room and they provided a microphone for the Father of the Groom to give his toast. We got married at the Hotel Monaco in DC which is a super short walk to Carmine's. But I would recommend Carmine's for any rehearsal dinner in the DC area because it is family style platters and the Italian-style food is something completely different than what you are most likely serving for dinner at your wedding reception. We will definitely be going back for dinner too! Thank you!
