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.

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.

Our party of four enjoyed a post-movie dinner at Carlyle. From the cheerful greeting on entering the restaurant to the last bites of dessert our experience was truly satisfying. The manager Michael is particularly attentive to all guests with his welcoming smile and easy manner. He works to ensure dining at Carlyle is a pleasure that brings people back, and the servers follow this lead as we have seen many times. Our dinners consisting of featured salads and the fettuccini special were all excellent, topped off with a delicious chocolate and raspberry confection to close out a truly fine dinner. Our thanks to Michael, the wait staff and excellent kitchen crew that keeps us coming back for more!

This is the first time we had a bad experience. Unfortunately the food was cold and they placed Us in the back room which was very noisy. And the waiter was not very attentive

Overall a nice place and we liked our food. One issue is that we asked if there were options not listed on th menu and the server replied "no". As we were leaving we noticed other options written on the blackboard. So, seems like a little lack of caring on our server's part, or lack of attention.

Service was good. Food was tasty but a little cold. We pre-ordered a cake and mentioned when we arrived to the restaurant. My guess is that the message wasn’t conveyed before hand. They baked the cake and frosted when it was warm. Came out looking a little “rough” but overall yummy. Even better after it was refrigerated at home.

We had a delightful lunch at Carlyle Grill. It is generally not as crowded at lunch as at dinner and it is much quieter so we were able to linger at our table and easily converse. They have lunch size portions of many of the entrees featured on the dinner menu. We both had grilled salmon which was excellent. I substituted steamed broccoli for the redskin potatoes for only a $1 upcharge. The broccoli was cooked perfectly as was the salmon. Even at the lunch price, our meals were pricey for a lunch but the salad and sandwich offerings are more comparable to other lunch spots, and likely much better than many.

Food is always SO good and the ambiance is nice. Drinks were great too. Only complaint is that service seems to have declined somewhat. What happened to all the old servers? It seems like they were all replaced at once. The hostess was so kind and saved the specific table we asked for as my mother has mobility issues. Waitress was ok but none of us appreciated being referred to as “babe” or “handsome.” It’s overfamiliar and disingenuous and not in keeping with the kind of establishment you have.

We ate outdoors on the patio outside the bar, so it was nice and quiet and relaxed. The food - pecan crusted chicken for one and a crab cake sandwich for the other - was delicious.

The dinner and service were excellent. The Manager stopped by our table to greet us and make sure everything was up to our expectations and they were. A variety of meals were ordered starting with the calamari that was consumed very quickly. The white fish was excellent with a generous proportion and mash potatoes. We concluded with a warmed piece of carrot cake and 6 spoons that was gone in minutes.

The food is always delicious. Our waitress was amazing. She was attentive and very friendly. Our 4 year old granddaughter asked for a hug from her as she left. Every time we have been there, it has been quite loud. However it never bothers us because it drowns out the noise that our grand kids make! The only disappointment we had was that I had asked for the one big corner booth to sit at, and when we got there, it was already taken.

Arrived 15 mins early but was seated right away. The service was super, the steak I ate was a little over cooked but still close enough for me not to complain. We will go back again and again.

My boyfriend and I were blown away when we ate here for his birthday dinner. The service was fantastic, the food was incredible, and the prices were so affordable! They have happy hour every afternoon (even on weekends!) which includes a number of drinks and appetizers for really cheap AND the restaurant has a birthday deal where you get 50% off the bill (not including alcohol or happy hour apps) if there are two people dining (33% if three people are dining, 25% if four people are dining, etc.). The restaurant was beautiful as well and our waitress was so kind and helpful! I don’t normally fill out these reviews but this restaurant was worth the few extra minutes to recommend!! My boyfriend and I will definitely dine here again in the future.

It is a great place to have a conversation and good food. Everything we order was good. The BBQ combo was great as was the steak and fries. The white fish was OK, I expected it to be more flavorful with the Parmesan crust. Dessert was good and so were the appetizers and drinks.

We've been here many, many times, and the food, service, and ambiance is consistent and good. Unfortunately this time both our orders were incorrect. After we mentioned, they did what they could to fix and paid for one of our drinks. Still love this place and will definitely go back. The ribs are just too good.
