Carmen's Restaurant is located in the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton, PA. The exterior is very inviting but the interior is magnificent with marble walls and pillars and a stained glass ceiling. The service was very good and the food was well prepared. I especially enjoyed the calamari starter. I know the meals may be more elegant at other... More

Had a quick breakfast and it was okay, nothing special. Nice atmosphere and the staff tried, but there is room for improvement.

Just ate dinner here and had the pappardelle bolognese and my friend had the gnocchi. Also some baked polenta. Honestly good meal. Have been coming here off and on for 10 years on business and this restaurant never disappoints. The restaurant is in the lobby of the Radisson hotel which is a converted train station. The only place to have... More

Love the atmosphere of the former Lackawanna Train Station. The service was great, attentive without hovering considering the restaurant was a bit slow. The menu had many good options, and we all started with soup. The minestrone was excellent, full of vegetables in a flavorful broth. It was hard to decide but I had the filet of beef, which was...

Dinner was wonderful, the atmosphere is stark at first, then you realized that you are surrounded by history, articular design and art, suddenly you are over whelmed with the beauty of it all. Our busboy, shared the history of the station and later gave us the Historical Society handout. The Hostess who should have covered all of this when taking... More

The food here is very well prepared. The staff here is also very courteous and kind. The view is very unique as you sit inside the hotel lobby of the Radisson hotel. The location used to be a train station and the lobby is the jewel of this facility.

We were warmly greeted and seated near the fountain. Prime rib and chicken dish were both excellent and the prime rib was done just to my liking. Service was elegant but not intrusive, and Tom's piano playing heightened the mood. As my wife said, if we lived here we'd come often.

I highly recommend the lunch buffet!! The food was beautifully presented and equally as good. The menu was great for vegetarians as well as meat eaters. Everyone loved the salad station. My personal favorite entree was the meatloaf but the other 5 diners I was with enjoyed the various types of pizza. All I can say is great food and... More
