Food was good, service was prompt. They have delicious
Great service and meal!
Very good food, great service.
We met up with some out of town relatives that were passing through on their way up north. We haven’t seen them in years so we spent a lot of time visiting. Our waitress had the patience of a saint and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. She never rushed us one bit. Thank you so much for a great meal and atmosphere conducive to a long visit. :)
We loved the food but it is way too noisy. "Energetic" does not describe it. "Painful" would be better. Impossible to have conversation, and the restaurant was only half full while we were there. Seniors, dates, friends, forget this if you want to talk. Just not possible.
Love that food is sourced locally - had not been here before and was not aware of this which is very important to many people. Food was tasty. Lovely decor and atmosphere
What a great surprise GEM of a restaurant. We booked a table for my birthday based on reviews and that it was open on Memorial Day. We didn't know what to expect. Wow were we surprised! everything was delicious, our server was A++ and the value was more than expected. We loved the local ingredients that flavor the menu choices. Can't wait to go back. Oh, and my dessert was free - and amazing - excellent tiramisu! and I am a pastry chef so I'm a tough critic.
We dine here often and have never been disappointed! The service is great, and the food is always excellent.
We were in Ann Arbor on Sunday to take our daughter out to dinner and wanted to get away from campus to try something we had not been to already. Overall, we enjoyed our experience here. We had fish & chips, a burger and chicken tender platter all of which were enjoyable. I also had the creamy chicken soup which was quite good. The only downer to the experience was watching an elderly woman at a table next to us remove her teeth and place them on the table. However, can't fault the restaurant for that. We would return again based on our experience and try to avoid sitting next to a teeth removal candidate.
Birthday celebration with book group
One of our 5 entrees came ice cold. One (short ribs) was very chewy - not tender at all. The waitress was not at all attentive. Very disappointing.
Great as always.. Hostess Deja is so nice and always has our table ready... our favorite restaurant...
Our party consisted of my wife, my daughter, her husband and their two children: 1 preschooler and a 5 month old. We were given a large corner booth which was perfect for us. We went there for a Mother's day dinner. We had 5:30 reservations and waited about 5-10 minutes, which wasn't too bad. The place was quite noisy but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. I think the noise level may have been because it was packed with people, given the occasion. Our server was friendly & efficient, checking on us often. As far as the food, well - it was outstanding. Three of the four adults got some type of fish which we shared bites of and my son-in-law got the full rack of ribs which he raved about. The temperature in the restaurant was a little too warm, but overall it was a wonderful experience and we will return. Considering it is a 45 minute drive for us, that's saying a lot!
We have always had great meals, generous portions and great waitresses. Another thing we appreciate is, since we are in the seniors age group and don't eat large portions, they are very accommodating when we ask to split a sandwich.
Food was satisfying with many comfort type foods included. The 7 of us all had something different and no one left any significant amount of food on their dish! The beef short ribs over risotto was excellent! I would suggest, however, that less spices be used in the meatloaf.
Our family had been traveling and needed to meet up from different directions at a restaurant in Ann Arbor. After a web search we chose Carlyle's - overall we were not disappointed. They even let us stay there for a long while visiting with each other before heading back to the airport. Top all of that off with a very reasonable bill!
The food doesn’t justify the cost but overall a great experience.
We went for Mothers Day brunch and had the turkey dinner. Big pieces of real turkey carrots were wonderful and potatoes were excellent. The rose for mother’s day was a very nice touch. We go to the Carlisle fairly often and with good reason
As always, great food and great service.
We dine here often, but the food was even more exceptional than usual Wednesday night.
Our book club met there for lunch and staff were very accommodating. The salads were wonderful, especially the Asian and Club salads. The burgers also delish.
Had a wonderful post graduation meal with friends and family at the Carlyle Grill. It was a comfortable and yet appropriate for a special occasion. The service was outstanding, gracious and made the meal wonderful. There was a wide range of menu items to please everyone in the group and a very expansive wine list. The desserts were also divine...the carrot cake is a must try! A delightful experience!
Great food...prime rib the best....
Handled the graduation crowd very well. Table by the wall was quiet enough for folks in over 60 to hear one another. Food quite good.
Excellent service and food. It was our first visit but not our last!
Had the chinese chicken salad which is essentially lettuce with shaved chicken on top. The dressing was on the side which was weird and it was a bad choice overall.
For run of the mill American food this was a satisfactory meal - still, the price was a little on the high side for the quality. For about the same amount, i would rather go to zingerman's roadhouse and get better ambience.
Great meal.. hostess very friendly and always accommodating my open table request...
Plenty of desirable dishes on menu. Excellent service, very attentive wait staff. Excellent salads and tasty chicken tenders. Ambiance and lighting is good. Offers separate bar area where you can also order food.
Restaurant very loud, cannot hear people at own table. Not kid friendly at all. Waitress stated didn't have things that were on the menu, then had server bring them. Unattentive staff were rushed and didnt have much caring personality. Food was average at best.
My boyfriend and I love to come to Carlyle, it is our favorite restaurant to eat at. The food is amazing and the service is great!
We were seated promptly, the food was great and the server was excellent.
The food was very good. Our waitress was excellent but the wait from the kitchen was terrible. I could tell that the waitress felt bad but it was out of her control. They sent out the wrong item and then it took a very long time to correct it. She kept apologizing about the wait but it made for a dissatisfying experience despite the excellent service and food.
We are frequent diners, like many, at Carlyle for two reasons; the excellent service and great food and the proximity to Quality 16. They changed the menu look and layout a while back for reasons that remain unclear; from a simple paper to hefty laminated poster with a red barn featured on the back, suggesting local produce offered? Our most recent dinner was on-par except the pasta dish had the large spirals in place of the angel hair that we were told was in short supply. The kitchen compensated for the bulk increase of pasta by having way too much balsamic that was too sweet to make an appealing dinner. Carlyle, true to form, did not charge us for the dinner not eaten and of course offered to bring something else, whatever was needed. They have been too good for too long to allow this hiccup to matter much. We will be back next week.
We went for a late lunch with family to celebrate a birthday. The reservation in open table was made for 7 but only a party of 5 was present. The restaurant quickly accommodated a smaller party, selecting a much more secluded area in the restaurant corner. This was a great location, as it was more quiet and allowed all to hold a normal conversation. The food was excellent and the server was very attentive to our meals and drinks! We have eaten here before and this time did not disappoint! As it was a birthday, the restaurant gave us a very generous discount which was applied to all three bills, not just the birthday person! This was unexpected and just added to very delightful time!
I rarely endorse with 5 stars, but the Carlyle Grill is one of the best for a very competitive restaurant market in the area! Thank you!
This is a place you would take your family to. It is not a place for a nice meal, but you get a homecooked type meal and it is tasty. It was good but it was way too loud and crowded for my tasted. I did enjoy the rotisserie chicken a lot but we found the other foods to be too salty.
This was my first time ever attending this restaurant and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The food was wonderful! Crab cakes - AMAZING. Lots of food for the price and very tasty. I plan on going again soon and am looking forward to making it there this summer to eat outdoors. Overall, GREAT PLACE.
Went to celebrate 59th Wedding Anniversary. They totally ignored it. Told me because because we did not come on the exact date of Anniversary,nothing could be done to acknowledge it. When I complained to manager he offered to give dessert to take hone. I accepted . He gave us burnt carrot cake.
We arrived about 30 minutes early for reservation on a Friday night and was still able to be seated within 15 minutes. Pleasant staff and a great place to eat!
Amazing rib eye and amazing prime rib. We celebrated a birthday .
Pros: Reserved table online and was seated early, welcoming hostess, nice atmosphere, clean, nice cocktail and good chicken dish.
Cons: had to send the meatloaf back because it was far too spicy, poor waitstaff service.
