Contemporary American
Comfort is the theme at this relaxed, friendly restaurant, where the menu runs to familiar, home-style dishes with top-notch regional ingredients. Enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, which is colorful and attractive, yet understated with mahogany accents, and large flagstone columns in the main dining room. During the warm seasons, take advantage of the two open air dining areas surrounding the restaurant. There is also a separate space for large reservations or private parties. Relax and enjoy the Carlyle Bar dining experience. A specialty drink is the perfect way to prepare for dinner and a movie at the Goodrich Quality 16. We look forward to your visit.

Food was good. Menu not very creative. Noise level from just one table was terrible for most of the other diners. Service was extremely slow. We were not in a hurry but long periods between first drink, appetizers. Server was brand new.

Seeing that our foursome was to wait for our reservation the manager took a drink order and promptly delivered from the bar. We were seated soon after. After enjoying the calamari we dug into dinners of NY strip, salmon, and two Harvest pasta servings. All were excellent. Judging by the crowd present I am confident they share our view; for great food, service and cheerful atmosphere Carlyle Grill does it well every time!

This is our go-to place for a casual meal. The service is consistently good and the food is well presented with quality ingredients (real Greek feta instead of dry crumbled feta on my Greek salad), meats served at precisely the temperature requested, and tasteful, well cooked vegetables. We’re never disappointed!

When the third member of our reservation arrived she was not told that we had already been seated. She told the receptionist that she would wait at the entrance for our arrival. After waiting until 10 minutes after six we called her and discovered she was at the entrance waiting. Once she was seated our dinner was semi-ruined by the noise level from out-of-control children. Talking across the table was difficult.

The food and the service were fine.

The main dishes were fine however we had to send back all of our sides as they were not remotely warm. I understand you’re not there for the sides but when I’m paying 35$ for a meal, I expect that the while thing is delicious. The dessert however was wonderful.

Great meal in Ann Arbor. The food was excellent - petite filet mignon was a perfect medium and as tender as can be. Delicious bread basket. My family members enjoyed their meals as well. Service was great. No complaints and would absolutely return.

I took my daughters to Carlyle Grill for dinner. The food was great, as was the service, and it's a nice lively atmosphere. Perfect place to go before seeing a movie (there is a theater right next door).

We took our son, daughter and her boyfriend for dinner during UM Parents Weekend. Good food, reasonably priced and excellent service. The restaurant is very loud but we were fortunate to get a booth in the corner. Would definitely return when we are back in Ann Arbor.

I had the fish and chips. Very, very, salty. Could not finish because of this. The wife had prime rib. Was good, cooked to order, nothing spectacular. Decor and ambiance were pleasant, service was average, but it was a busy night. Will not return, bill and tip over $70, with no alcohol.

We have a diversity of dishes at our table, prime rib, chicken pot pie, fish fry, and a chicken and macaroni dish. All were great.

Reservation was honored nicely despite extreme crowd upon arrival. Wait staff was very mediocre—not personable and rushed. However, I attribute that to being perhaps TOO busy. One thing I hate hate is plates being handed from waitstaff to customers to pass to the next person. This was done by several folks when food was delivered. Overall recommend but be prepared to shout at each other.

One of those solid neighborhood restaurants that we need as a go-to spot. Nothing outstanding (mushroom ravioli themselves were very good but the sauce was oversalted; ribs were good, slaw was fine) but certainly will be back. We have family in the area and it will be easy and convenient to meet up at the Carlyle.

Went there for a birthday dinner for my wife. She did not know that our daughter/son-in-law had driven in from out of town to surprise my wife. The Carlyle staff was informed about the surprise and kept my with in the dark as we were led to the table with them already there. The look on my wife's face was PRICELESS! Many thanks to the Carlyle staff for helping keep the surprise and for the outstanding dinner too!

Wide ranging menu. Good wine list. We had a party of seven. Everyone was happy with their food. Service was good, though there were a couple of lulls, but then we weren’t in a hurry.
