A friend and I had lunch here the other day and really enjoyed it. The food was excellent, and the service was attentive without being overly so. I had a jumbo lump crab cake sandwich that really was made with jumbo lump crab, unlike what you get in some restaurants. It came with a delicious remoulade sauce. My friend had... More

For Christmas my beautiful wife presented me with a date night, our first opportunity in over a year for us to enjoy a night with just each other. She planned for a baby sitter and purchased tickets for us to see 'West Side Story' at the Signature Theater in Arlington (Shirlington), Virginia, a small but very professional local theater. Several... More

Dinner and wait staff were excellent. I had the fish of the day which was red snapper cooked perfect, my wife had beef spare rips served over mashed potatoes both excellent. Even though it was rather fancy there we families with kid and people dress casual.

I have lived in Arlington for 17 years. I was introduced to this restaurant shortly after I moved to town. It was amazing then, and it still always exceeds my expectations. The food is absolutely delicious, the ambience is lovely and charming, and the service is impeccable. I have eaten at other restaurants from the Mike's American Grill genre, and... More

This is really our GO TO! restaurant in Arlington, actually in the Village of Shirlington! It is always really good, they have bread from the Best Buns next door! The wine needs to be ordered before anything else however, it is locked in a cabinet and requires a Manager to retrieve it! So if you want a bottle order it... More

Late lunch. We were seated upstairs at a large table. Service is excellent, pleasant and prompt. I asked our server for a recommendation and she suggested the salmon. It was delicious and cooked just right!

We stopped at the Carlyle after church with my 21 month old Grandaughter. Sitting in a booth next to other friendly folks is fine downstairs and since it's still morning on a Sunday, the bar crowd had yet to arrive so it was relatively quiet save for the elevator music. The bread basket of carbo delights was enhanced by the... More

The Shirlington neighborhood is a great place to take visitors, and the Carlyle restaurant at the corner of Campbell and South Quincy is one of Arlington’s better restaurants. It could be better. The flounder with a caper lemon butter sauce was excellent, the salad great, but the shrimp and grits miss the mark. The shrimp was perfectly cooked with a... More
