The last day of our family reunion a few of us decided to grab brunch as we would all be departing at various times.

Thanks so much for your kind words! So happy to hear that you and your family were able to join us at Carlyle and that everyone enjoyed their BBBC Brioche French Toast! It's one of my favorites too.

Parking can sometimes be an issue at this Shirlington mainstay. Traditional American fare that is all very good. Wine choice is good - prices accompany the quality of the wine selection. Upstairs is much quieter.

I met family here on a Friday night for dinner. It was busy and noisy, but we were seated right away. Service was just average. My companion did not get the sauce she wanted with her meal until she asked three times. My trout was delicious.

Always feel like family when I go to the Carlyle - you will, too - be sure to try the Lobster Bisque and Roasted Chicken Salad - save room for their yummy desserts!

We were a group of 8 dining on a Sunday. There were several dining rooms to accommodate the large crowd. The tables were comfortably spaced. The service was good. The first issue was that our server had no idea what whiskeys were available at the bar and there was no list on the menu. She sent someone else to the... More
