We had a Saturday lunch at The Carlyle Restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It was a classic and memorable New York experience. The decor is elegant. The food is so tasty. The service is good and discreet.

We have dined at the Carlyle many times and are big fans. However, this special, mind blowingly expensive Valentine’s Day dinner was a disaster to put it kindly. We couldn’t get anyone’s attention between courses. The time between courses was interminable and the wait for the soufflé desert was close to an hour. Other guests, like, we, sat without drinks, food or service Unbelievable. The tab for two was $437! They have some work to do.

My boyfriend and I came here for an early valentines dinner. We were able to use a Travelzoo deal and it was such a wonderful value.

The service was top notch and the food was great!

It was superb from beginning to end. The bet and burrata was amazing, so was the raspberry soufflés for dessert. We also had the prime rib and tuna- greT meal all around, and Charles ( Chuck) as the dining captain was outstanding. Also his co captain was so nice and accommodating. It is hard to find the old time elegance and formality like that in nyc or any city, and it def had refined elegance. We will add it to our dinner rotation, since we have been there for other meals in Bemelmans and the brunch, but now will come back often for dinner as well.

I'm a food editor by day and I've been to most of NYC's most iconic restaurants. That being said, I just don't understand the hype surrounding The Carlyle. Service was ridiculously slow (took nearly 15 minutes to get seated) and the food tasted bland and uninspired (if you're going to serve truffle mashed potatoes, please, for the love of God, put truffles in it). While the decor was beautiful and classic UES, it's not enough to justify a $400 bill. Very disappointing experience and your money can be better spent elsewhere.

The service was not rushed,the waiter came over a few times to make sure every thing was perfect. The scallops were outstanding, the dessert an apple flan, we had asked to have it split, when it came to the table a large portion of ice cream sat on top. Quite delicious.
Lunch was definitely expensive! The appetizers for two plus one desert ,two gasses of wine,two cups of coffee came to 150 dollars with tip. the elegant ambiance and excellent caring service made it worth while!

Captain Patrick and staff was great. However, could not solve the a/c issue. Do not sit in the rear room on the banquet to the right... cold air blows onto the banquet from underneath. They need to solve this.

The space is charming, but the food is truly cruise-ship awful (salmon rillettes looked and smelled like cat food and had three potato chips stuck on top), the service is both snooty and unpolished (don't act like snobs with your french menu when you don't train your snooty staff to pronounce a single thing on the menu), and the prices are out of sight, even for the Upper East Side. You go for the old world atmosphere and décor. That's it! Eat before hand, order as lightly as they will allow you, have an overpriced drink, and enjoy the octogenarian crowd.

Like slipping into a warm bath. Let yourself be pampered in the most gorgeous surroundings imaginable, with the ultimate attentive service, fine linens, spectacular flowers etc.
You'll still find many old familiar dishes on the menu, AND faces in the dining room (guests as well as staff). Total luxury and comfort in which to enjoy life's most significant occasions--or just any old night of the week, for the truly fortunate!
