    This became our new favorite restaurant! Food was amazing and Charles the table captain was perfect!! I have dietary issues and everything was prepared with attention to my needs in mind. Mostly, we appreciated the ambiance, the romantic atmosphere and such a lovely evening! Thank you!!

    The Carlyle is VERY expensive and the service isn't commensurate with the prices. The staff is very attentive but not particularly well trained. I took my sister-in-law to the Carlyle for a birthday lunch and three times, while she was still eating, the waiter tried to clear our plates. The rest of the staff seemed stiff and overly formal versus other restaurants I've been to in this price range. Equally offensive was I ordered a salad that was on the price-fixed menu ala carte and asked that grilled salmon be added atop the salad. They charged me for both the salad and a full salmon entree. I order a salad/salmon combo often and have never had a restaurant charge like that . Though, I could have challenged the charge, I didn't want to make things awkward, given that I was trying to make this lunch a nice experience for my sister-in-law. The Carlyle Hotel holds special significance for me, since my husband and I were married there 36 years ago, but I won't be returning to The Carlyle Restaurant.

    I called ahead to confirm that they were doing restaurant week and when we asked for the menu, they said that they already stopped on Friday. So we ended up having to pay DOUBLE for dinner!!

    I ate at the Carlyle for dinner during restaurant week. Restaurant week is the way to eat at the Carlyle. The food and beverage is very expensive. My food was excellent. I had the beet salad, gnocchi and the creme brûlée. My service on the other hand was not good. My waiter ignored me the entire time I was there. He treated me completely different than all his other tables. He didn’t introduce himself. I was only given the restaurant week menu. I was not told the specials. I had to ask for the wine and cocktail menus. I was dining alone but that is no excuse to treat me different than the other guests. He did offer me coffee or tea at the end of the meal. I had to flag a different server down so that I could get my bill. Because I couldn’t get my waiters attention. I will never return. The food was excellent but I don’t have to pay $35 for an entree to be ignored.
