Great restaurant with a vibrant bar scene. Have been going for years and food and service are consistently good. Decibel level is high, but overall a great place to dine at.

Great food and service. Try the crab cakes or the seared tuna. The salmon is also very good. Perfect for dinner before theater at Signature. We go here about six times a year. Always good.

We met some friends for dinner and it was excellent. I have really enjoyed all the other Great American restaurants over the years but this was my first time at the Carlyle. Great food & service and the place had a nice energetic vibe.

If you are looking for conversation, make a reservation on the second floor. The first floor is a large and nicely appointed bar, but it is very noisy. The second floor is a restaurant. The menu will please everyone--fish, steak, salads, and I seem to recall sandwiches. The portions were large. I had the baked flounder with mashed cauliflower. My... More
