We had the deviled eggs and fried calamari as starters, then salmon, crab cakes, steak as entrees. All food was expertly prepared and tasted great. Service was friendly and quick. All in all, a great dining experience at surprisingly moderate prices.

Have loved this restaurant for years for dinners and lunches and recently went early for brunch and found it disappointing. There are not many breakfast options and the few on the menu are very underwhelming. Basically there is a savory option (like an egg scramble)...More

This restaurant is simply amazing. The service is done the old fashion way, by proper waiters who know their jobs. The choice of food is simply great: meat, fish, vegan, gluten free, everything you need. I would definitely recommend this place. I have been there...More

Elegant and cosy restaurant that offers a range of dishes, though only one I found vegan friendly but staff able and willing to accommodate. Friend had the tuna salad and she loved it. And ask to sit upstairs.

This is a fine restaurant so it is expensive. With that being said, it is worth the cost. I had the best steak of my life while dining there. The mashed potatoes were delicious as well. They also have a nice selection of alcoholic beverages....More

If you want great food at a fair price this is the place! Everything they serve is delicious, you can’t go wrong! Their pastry shop side also serves sandwiches and they are first class! This is the place! I love it!

Seated and served quickly, excellent food (new Orleans shrimp and grits, jambalaya), and not too loud so conversation is easy. Priced right. Nice spot in Shirlington.

Consistently very good and now able to make online reservations. Nice improvement for those of us attending nearby Signature theatre. Very good halibut and salmon. Normal friendly attentive staff and good close parking garages. Always worth a stop at Carlyle.

This restaurant will never get a Michelin star but in the many years I have been going there I have never had a bad meal. This may turn some people off but the menu never seems to vary. As I have favorites on the menu...More
