    I had been to The Carlton several years ago and when I got back in the area I knew where I had to go. This was a special occasion and I couldn’t think of a better place to take my girlfriend, she had never been there before and it was the perfect place. The wait staff were attentive but not overbearing, the wine choices were excellent for the choices of dishes and the food was excellent. Just as I remembered.

    We were disappointed with very slow service (1 hour wait for appetizers). The wine list was sub par and the food just ok at best. My companions had undercooked duck, but were too frustrated to send it back. There are much better choices. We wanted a special meal; for now I would avoid this venue.

    Very disappointed. Nothing like the place used to be when I came here many years ago. We chose this place for a special celebration based on our memories of the place and the description in Open table of most "beautiful and romantic".. It was neither of that.! There were not flowers, no candles, no music, and the fireplace not working.. The place was very cold, literally.! My wife had to eat with the jacket on her shoulders. Not comfortable at all! The duck that I ordered was excessive dry and fat. The lobster and beef was nice presented, but the taste nothing special. It reminded me a catering hall food. The service was very good and the waitress was very nice. That's the only positive. For those prices there are many better choices. This one, I don't recommend at all

    We’ve come in the past for special occasions but the price fixe is so ridiculously over- priced for what you get I had to write. $110 for some sliced up filet, a Caesar salad, and a small dessert in their 1992 rose tile decor is so insulting I am still beating myself up for going there and getting robbed like we did. Off the charts negative for value, so many other better places to go….

    Not at all what it used to be just a few years ago. The food was okay, but reminded me of standard catering hall food. The side veggies were super mushy (carrots and squash). The mashed potatoes were room temperature. The crème brûlée barely had a glaze on top. On a night where there were literally two other parties dining in the large dining room, we were seated right next to the swinging kitchen doors, kitchen things clanging, with wait staff in and out, and chatting by the bar. We had a reservation. My husband and I were each brought a single, small piece of bread before dinner. It was just … underwhelming, for a place I used to love. I won’t be returning.

    Such a disappointing evening all around. although everything looked beautiful the service was horrible we sat at 6:05 for a 6:15 reservation and it took an hour before we were asked or given drinks and bread The server was apologetic but it did not make our evening any better. it was 2 and a 1/2 hours of waiting around. so dissatisfied and so disappointing for such a special holiday and evening

    We did not know that the Palm Court has a cigar lounge above it when we booked our reservation. We would not have gone had we known. The cigar smoke smell was fairly strong, and we could smell it through our masks when we walked in. The food was decent and mostly reasonably priced. The service was good and all staff wore their masks. The decor was dated but pretty. They did have it decorated for the holidays, which was nice. If you’re sensitive to smoke I wouldn’t recommend going unless you can get a table near the windows.

    It was a nice experience - there was no valet parking - my friend and I are handicapped and the maitre d' found someone to park the car for us and retrieve it when it was time to leave - this was very much appreciated - did not like the lobster roll - sauce was bland -and uninteresting - my friend did like the shrimp dish though -

    Went for our 15 anniversary. Service was ok but really screwed up that they didn’t have our wine even when the apps arrived. Sommelier saved the day however food wasn’t great and they are way under staffed. It is a shame because it used to be such a great place. I hope they can get back to a better place.

    My wife and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary here for dinner and absolutely loved the entire experience. The staff was very attentive and helpful from start to finish. They provided a glass of champagne at the beginning of the meal to congratulate us - this was such a nice touch. There was a live band playing and couples were dancing throughout the evening. That alone made our evening. With that said, the food was delicious!! The fried calamari and raw oysters were delicious. We also ordered a rib eye steak and duckling for our entrees and each dish was cooked perfectly. We cannot say enough good things about our experience and this meal. We look forward to coming back soon!
