  • "Always have a great meal at Carlyle Grill. They never disappoint. The Raspberry Lemon Drop drink was outstanding!!!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "After four baskets of rolls the salads arrived but not everyone's. The waiter was pleasant but a food server was rough, plopped plates on the table while reaching across and in the personal space of the guest. It was so intrusive we had to laugh. The dinner also arrived in stages, some items cold, and late. Unfortunate due to the good food and attractive menu. First time at Carlyle. Possibly a bad or busy night."

  • "Service was quick and excellent food selections for lunch...highly recommend comfort food of the chicken finger platter, chicken avocado club sandwich, or any of the pasta dishes. Can't go wrong with any choice!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The noise level was once again intolerable. We really enjoy the food at the Carlyle but the background music along with the acoustics make normal conversation impossible. Our server was OK but seemed to be distracted and less attentive than the other servers."

  • "It was not very busy for our early dinner. Thus it also was of very loud while we were there. Good food and great service."

  • "Chicken Avocado Sandwich and the Chicken Finger Platter are definitely staples at this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Ultimate comfort food. Service was great and timing of food fit within our lunch timeframe...definitely love this place."

  • "So many places seldom get a steak right, cooked perfectly. Wife's dish also perfect, great wine lost. Nothing went wrong"

  • "Great place to stop at in the evenings for drinks and appetizers, or even just a light meal or dessert!"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "This restaurant is in a perfect location for a meal before or after going to the movies at Quality 16. My meal was disappointing. I ordered soup and salad. The soup was bland and not hot - the salad was mostly iceburg lettuce. Other people in my group had meals that were better. The service was very good and accommodating to our group of 10 people."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We have been to Carlyle Grill many times before and have always had good service. So I'm hoping our experience was a one time thing. Quick to take the orders, but never received my soup and main courses took over 30 minutes to get. We never received water refills or were asked if we wanted another drink. Won't be coming there again for awhile."

  • "Carlyle is a great stop for a drink afte work and some takeout. It's even better if you sit down and enjoy the many offerings on their menu. The food will definitely surprise you, and they are very accommodative of gluten free dining."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We were looking for a restaurant where we could have a nice dinner in the area, and Carlyle Grill came highly recommended on Open Table. There were some tables occupied, however the place was nice, with a good ambience. The service was prompt, accomodating to our needs. We really felt welcomed, and enjoyed the dinner."

  • "Wonderful steak salad, loved our booth. Must extend our sincere thanks to Sara for always providing impeccable service!"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "The Carlyle Grill in Ann Arbor is a great place for our family to celebrate events, because it is easy to get to and equidistant between the Metro Detroit area and mid-Michigan. The service at the Carlyle is always spot-on attentive without being intrusive and the food is excellent."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Enjoyable dinner with a friend, very nice dinner selections. Draft beer selection limited but excellent choices. Service was conscientious and not cloying. Only disappointment was the house salad - standard lettuce/veggie mix from a bag. The decor of dark woods was pleasant and comfortable."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Carlyle Grill is a good, moderately priced restaurant. It's better than national chains, but it's not fine dining. Good choice of both sandwiches and entrees, and generous portions."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Food often comes to table less hot than it could be. Tell the waitress you want the fries hot ahead of time and you usually get it. Crab cakes are good, but came lukewarm, which makes them just okay."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I chose to eat a Carlyle's after looking online for a nice place for dinner when my parents were in town. We had a reservation and were seated as soon as we walked in the door. We were all very happy with our meal selections and the service was extremely fast! our meals came out just after we got our appetizer so that was the only complaint I have... which really isn't much of a complaint at all! Our server was very timely with refilling our drinks promptly and was helpful with suggestions."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Good service, good atmosphere, and absolutely fantastic food, literally made my mouth water. I highly recommend the specials, whatever they are, as the chefs are very good at what they do."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Crazy busy night, friendly but overworked staff, sat on what is normally an outdoor patio that has roll down glass doors. It was a bit chilly and the table was obviously and outdoor table with a tablecloth over it. The food was tasty but came out VERY fast leading me to believe most of it was per-prepared and then heated up."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Will give them the benefit of the doubt. Dinner @ 9PM on a Sunday may have been the reason they were out of potatoes. Also, waitress seemed like she had had a long day. But we got throught it, and the food was certainly okay. We had just seen a movie and didn't want to drive too far to grab a bite. THIS RESTAURANT IS GREAT FOR THAT TYPE OF OCCASION."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Had salmon on a plank. Very tasty, soup of the day was creamy tomato, great but not real hot. Brownie ice cream dessert was just ok. Service was very attentive and friendly. My husband's Parmesan encrusted white fish was delicious. The side verges of zucchini we're not notable."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "We've been to Carlyle before, and we love it for a pre-movie dinner. This time, I checked out the menu for Restaurant week, and Carlyle's was the best I found for "something for everyone." My mother-in-law loved the baby bay scallops, I had squash ravioli, my son got his baby back ribs, and my husband had a meal-salad. Most Restaurant week menus were very limited and truly aimed at high foodies. Not great for a family outing. Carlyle's booths are comfortable and allow privacy, and their service is always fast and friendly."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "No restaurant week lunch specials are honored on weekends. This was not mentioned anywhere on the website - very misleading advertising. We made reservations to try the lunch specials for AA restaurant week on Sunday, and ended up having to order other items off the menu. We would've gone elsewhere had we known beforehand. To say the least, we were not happy. Food was still decent, but there was quite a wait on Sunday for the orders."

  • "We celebrated our Christmas get together where I came from Jackson and my other family came from Farmington Hills. The location was in the middle. We were so pleased with the service and food. I HIGHLY would recommend this restaurant to others. I know we will be back. Thanks so much for the memory."

  • "Steak Frites makes us feel like we're in Paris again... but the meat is much better!"
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Carlyle Grill is not the best restaurant in the crowded Ann Arbor restaurant scene, but it is reliably good food and a great choice when you want to be out on the west side of town. I've always been pleased with the quality/quantity of the food and the service. NY Strip steak is excellent, as are most of their specials. Great wine selection. Ask for a booth, as it can be a bit loud at the tables in the middle."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We enjoy going here because of the large booth options where you can fit 5-6 people comfortably rather than at a table. The food is always excellent with a few of their own recipes you can't find anywhere else. The server was always checking on us which was helpful. Always a very enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Home page for Carlyle's did not say restaurant would be closing at 8:00pm nor did person I spoke to earlier in the day when I called to ask about specials for that evening. Reservation was 6:45 , whitefish was tasteless, veggies mush and potatoes cold. Partner's ribs were dry and tasteless. Had to ask for water 2 x's. By 7:30 pm atmosphere was "hurry up and get out,of here, we want to get home.""

  • "Picked Carlyle Grille because of ability to make a reservation. We were met and seated immediately and courtesly despite the fact that one couple with us was a no show. The wait staff was great and so was the food. Would definately reccomend this restaurant."

  • "We have spent the last four Christmas Eve's at Carlyle's and look forward to a fifth next year. The food is tremendous and the service amazing! We are always aware and sensitive to the fact that staff want to be out for Christmas Eve too but they never make us feel rushed. We truly love and appreciate this wonderful "neighborhood gem" and thank you for four wonderful years... Carol Price"

  • "Service was outstanding, food was well prepared and served fresh ( no extended heat lamp time). We enjoyed a quiet evening of conversation, wine, and good food."

  • "The waitress was all over my wife and I to order drinks, appetizer, etc. until the other couple that we were dining with arrived. Then she was AWOL! Management needs to do a much better job making sure the servers are providing service. Food was only okay so wouldn't really go out of my way to go there. You can do much, much better in Ann Arbor area!"

  • "A hidden gem on the extreme west side of Ann Arbor. Excellent specials and great at cooking fish. Tuesday nights half price on the wine list, which includes some excellent wines as well as decent values. Staff is pleasant and efficient."

  • "Went on a Saturday night with a friend to celebrate my divorce. The place was full, but I booked ahead of time, so we didn't have to wait at all. I ordered pasta and my friend had the pot roast -- both were excellent. I recently moved out the area, but when I come back to visit, I will definitely return to Carlyle Grill."

  • "I'd never been to Carlyle for lunch but it was right in the middle between my work place and my guest's workplace. We both had soups and salads. Shrimp Corn Chowder - Very rich, large chunks of shrimp with tender vegetables. Great! Carlyle Salad with Chicken with Honey Dijon Dressing - Very good.The dressing was very thick which wasn't to my liking but had good flavor. We had an issue with our server forgetting to add chicken to my guest's salad and it took quite a while to get it out to add to the salad. But other than that the server was attentive and got everything right. She also informed my guest after he requested to have his salad without bacon that the soup he had ordered also had bacon which allowed him to change his order."
