Overall our experience at the Carlyle Club was very good. The food was excellent, we were seated in a timely fashion and our food came out quickly and was well prepared. The band was playing some very nice jazz music and the noise level wasn't too high. Overall a great place for a romantic dinner with a special someone. The only complaint was with the server. While very nice he was quite forgetful, I never received a refill of my water glass even though I asked twice and served desert without silverware so we had to stare at it a while before we could eat it.

Had an excellent meal and enjoyed live music. Very much like an old nightclub experience. Nothing like it in the DC area. Will definitely come back.

This was my first time at this restaurant and absolutely love it. Service was very friendly and food was great. Having live music was an added bonus. We ordered the filet and the lamb – both were cooked as ordered and both very tasty. The lobster bisque is to die for.

Dinner was yummy but the highlight was the live music. We all enjoyed our dinners, crab cakes and lobster bisque. A perfect ending was the key lime pie!! We had a very nice gentleman playing piano, taking requests and very receptive to playing all kinds of music. Enjoying live music while we ate was really fun!! We will be back!!

Beautiful supper club, top notch musical entertainment, for adults, jazz trios, bands w/singers, fabulous lobster bisque ever, beautiful bar. valentines day had 2 seatings. We were late seating at 8:45. Curtain on stage closed and canned music on ..spoke to couple next table who had earlier seating...said they felt rushed and no time to dance to trio but twice after dinner because trio quit...they didn't want their food to get cold so waited to dance. Then they left. The trio didn't come back until nearly 9pm . We danced twice between courses. 10pm the trio quit, began to pack up! We clapped until they decided to play 1 more. 20 couples got up and danced. Fri evening Valentines Day celebration ended at 10:30pm!

The food is outstanding, and I simply cannot say enough about the bartender. She is superb. Every cocktail I have had from her (this is my third visit) has been consistently amazing. Also, there is always live music and it is a great atmosphere.

I thought with a "Thursday Night Date Night w/ Jazz" would be a fun & relaxing way to celebrate a birthday. Unfortunately I was wrong. There were just the two of us in our party & there were probably no more than a dozen tables booked for the evening. When we arrived there was no hostess to greet us, had to go to the bar to get the attention of the bartender to seat us (3 patrons in the bar). Once we were seated they rushed to have us place our order & when my entree came there was no follow up by the wait staff. I had to go to the bar 20 min later & ask for my Delmonico steak to be returned to the kitchen as it was over cooked (table next to us had to send their lamb chops back for the same reason). Finally, were rushed to pay the check.

Went on Valentines day when they had a jazz group on stage. It was a great time, definitely worth going to.
