What They’re Saying
Carmen’s is always wonderful. Juan and his staff do a terrific job and treat everyone like family. The food, as always, was delicious.
I took friends there from out of town. What a great way to show off Kansas City and celebrate their anniversary! The meal and service were impeccable. Atmosphere was warm and inviting and upscale–kind of European. I had veal Oscar and a delicious red wine. Fabulous.
Carmen’s is such a great place. Cozy atmosphere. Independently owned. FANTASTIC food and reasonably priced. If you are in the KC area this is a must try!
”Wow!” This was our first visit to Carmen’s in Brookside, it certainly won’t be our last. It’s a quaint little place, and the wait staff were wonderful. We never had to ask for a thing. The salads were delicious and fresh and the entrees were just outstanding. We could not stop commenting on how wonderful everything was. And talk about bang for the buck!!! Pricing was more than reasonable for what we ordered. If you are in the mood for amazing Italian food, you have to give Carmen’s a try.
