“Outstanding desserts and actual conversation - priceless ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Whenever our kids are away or under the ridiculously effective eyes of grandparents we flee to Carlyle - 17 years straight. It continues to always be consistently superb with seamless wait attention and an upbeat vibe on the main floor. We enjoyed local microbrew - vanilla creme brûlée and a mountain of homemade banana pudding. We were seated immediately and the tables are far enough apart to not have to tune out other conversations. A nice way to cap off a long Friday.

“Awesome food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Consistently great food, the staff is very friendly, and service is pretty quick despite how busy they are. My favorite is the lobster rolls. The crab cakes are yummy and my daughter recently tried the ribeye. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Shirlington. Parking is free and fairly close by. Every time family or friends visit, I take them here and they love it as much as I do.

“The crab cakes were incredible- skip the appetizer and go for the meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

After a night out my aunt and I stopped for an appetizer and decided just to split a meal instead. It was late and the staff was incredibly accommodating and kind and let us pick a table outside. The crab cakes had huge lumps of meat, the french fries were crisp and salty and a special dessert was created for my aunt, according to her requests, for her birthday. Thanks, Carlyle staff, for the end to a perfect evening!

“Nice location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Very comfortable restaurant nicely located at corner in Shirlington Village. We enjoyed a good meal with tuna tacos to start (interesting ) followed by steaks and Jambalaya and finished with a very nice chocolate waffle. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Recommended.
