Huge fan of this place. They don't have a great variety on the menu, but everything tastes amazing. The staff/manager are all friendly and engaging. Their portions are huge - I don't mind having leftovers!

We were told to try this spot. It was an absolute must. They were right. The food was wonderful and worth it. The bread pudding is a must. Please save room or share it!

I visit Carlyle about once a month. I know I'll always get good food, great service and an energetic but relaxing atmosphere. I usually go with a good friend but have taken my young adult children several times. Never disappointed.

Been eating here since they opened way back in the late 1980's, I think. Excellent service, excellent food.

Carlyle is a formula operation. They do what they do competently and quickly, but there is nothing adventurous or dynamic. Want a safe dinner with the kids where everyone will find something to their taste?, Carlyle is an ideal choice. Date night, naw. Tried it once, won't be back given the range of choices nearby.

Had drinks and dinner there recently. Everyone's meal was good. Menu is limited but everything on it is well prepared and service is consistently excellent.

This was a wonderful brunch experience! The server was friendly and helpful, food selection was diverse, quick service, and relatively inexpensive. Perfect combination. The portions were big enough that we struggled to finish everything. Oh, and don't say no to the bread basket!!

With a large group of 7, ordered spinach dip and calamari for app, my entree was pecan crusted trout with broccolini, dessert was apple pecan pie with ice cream. All food amazing! Server very attentive as well. I tasted someone's Brussels sprouts and they were the best I've ever tasted!

Another consistently great dinner at Carlyle. Visited prior to our show at the Signature theatre. Great martini and spinach dip appetizer. Wife loved her smoked salmon. Normal friendly and efficient wait staff. Great American restaurants are consistent across all their restaurants. Call ahead to ensure prompt seating during busy times. When done with lunch/dinner, go through their inside doors to... More

Came to Carlyle's on a busy Friday night. I had the Rib eye and was shocked at how good it was. Service was great, and the food was even better.

Thank Dave C
