An unusually quiet night at this very popular restaurant. We were the ONLY table taken in this large old-world restaurant. Of course, in a restaurant of this caliber, with no one else there, the service was impeccable. Food preparation, plating and taste were all perfect. A teeny berry napoleon for dessert, but a lovely banana split or plate of ice cream for same price. A wonderful time for a multi-celebration evening.

The only issue my Fiancé and I had during our Special Night Out On Valentines Day, was our seating location. We were seated right in the middle of the Red Room, at the location of the opening as you enter the large White Color room.

All night long we had people walking by us on both sides, waiters carrying food to serve people as they walked on both sides of our table and we watched the Table Cleaners (Bus Boy) walk by us on both sides of our table all night long. Basically, we felt as if we were seated in the Archway of the 2 rooms and everyone walked by us. Not an intimate setting we must say for an Important Valentine Day night.

At one point we almost left, but we remember having Dinner at Palm Court several other times and Really Enjoyed our Food, Service, waiters were great and the Restaurant is very Elegant and very well run. So we stayed, enjoyed the night as much as possible and really enjoyed our Food.

Also, we were alittle disappointed that the Music ended at 10:30pm. As by that point in time, we only had been served our Appetizers and Wine since the Kitchen seemed to be backed up with Food Preparation, Food Volume required to be served and management should have been concerned with keeping the Special Nights Ambiance Going and Music should have been playing until pretty much everyone is done eating.

I hope my comments and concerns are taken as truthful words, since your Food and Service was outstanding, but need to understand the Ambiance issue on such an important night. Thank you for your time reading my comment and hope to hear from management at there next earliest convenience.

We went for valentines night dinner. They had a custom menu for the night which was okay. Would have preferred a basic salad option instead of the two presented (my husband ate both salads). Desert plate was cute and they had live music which allowed for some nice slow dancing.

The menu selections, the presentation of the food, the service and the taste were outstanding. The only negative to the whole evening was a very noisy table that was close by. The acoustics are not good at absorbing sound.

Our requested round table was right on top of musicians so we took a rectangle table at the other side of the restaurant. There was a party going on in the adjacent room. The door between both rooms kept getting opened and would remain opened, making the dinning room extremely loud (on top of the music playing in the room). Twice we got up from our table to close the door. Another table closed the door as well. Other patrons asked the waiters to close the door too. Hostesses should have been more on top of that so it wasn’t up to the customers to do so. Waiter was not very attentive. Missing one of our appetizers. Prime rib special looked as if it was microwaved and the baked potatoes were cold. The decor and holiday decorations are beautiful. But for the amount of money you spend at The Carlton we would expect much better food and service. Very disappointed in our evening.

My sole constructive comment: due to the manner of the restaurant's acoustical architecture, the noise levels seen to be most always rather high. Having a pianist accompanied by a crooner increases the level of noise by an order of magnitude. The noise levels tend to discouragingly detract from the dining experience and make meaningful conversation at the tables a challenge.
