Carlyle Grill Ratings and Reviews
The Carlyle Grill is a perfect place to have a solid meal before or after a movie at the nearby Quality 16 Theater. The selection was good and the food was tasty and well-prepared. I had scallops and my wife had a salad meal- both were very good. Most notably, we had a delightful waitress who was pleasant, energetic, friendly (but not overly so) and efficient. We left a very good tip!
We were a little disappointed with our experience this time. Service was slow (for example no water refills until the manager came around, no offer for bread, etc.), food was slow (there was a large party and a group in the room). The Newport Salad which has been ordered numerous times, was different this time with no explanation in the menu. It didn't come out with the rest of the food, so that person had to wait. The chicken tenders that go on it were not ready when the salad was so they brought them out separate. Just not the typical experience we get at Carlyle.
Normally our service at Carlyle is fabulous, but I'm not sure what happened this time. Our waiter was initially fabulous, but as soon as we put our orders in (the first time he came to our table) things basically stopped. My daughter, who is 2, ordered buttered noodles and it was to come out with the soups and salads. It came out WAY later (approximately 10-15 minutes after). The French onion soup didn't have the normal carmelized crust it has. Our entrees were very slow to come out, the sides were a variety of temperatures from very cold to lukewarm. Our reservation was at 5:30 on a Monday, I'm not sure what the reasoning behind the poor service was, but it was disappointing. Luckily, I have a long track record of good experiences, so I/we still will be back.
Both my dinner in the wife’s dinner were overcooked and delivered to the table too cool to eat. The restaurant compensated by removing both dinners from my bill but after dining at Carlisle for many years this dinner was a surprising disappointment we trust that the restaurant will do much better on future occasions
My husband and I came to visit our daughter, a new U of M student. We had not heard of the Carlyle Grill prior to last week. All 3 of us had excellent dinners! The service was outstanding! I had a raspberry lemon drop martini, which was also excellent. We will definitely dine there again.
LA, Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Picked this place for a dinner with friends because it had easy access and free parking and a varied menu. We settled for pizza -- the safe option and it was tasty. Some of the entrees seemed a bit pricey, but we did not try them. The best part about this place is the service! Overall nothing special, but a reliable, above average choice!
Not expecting the mouth party the Meatloaf gave me! My mom is totally jealous now and has spoke to me this week because of the raves I gave it. Thanks Carlyle Grill for putting a wedge between me and my family! For the good of family, you should stop putting so much care in your food.
Seriously, we had a great time. Had to send back a beer glass that was pretty worn, but other than that, no complaints. Great job!
The food was quite good, although not without a couple of problems. The smoked chicken chinois salad was served without chicken. When we finally got the server's attention, she did apologize and headed back to get some. The manager delivered a plate of sliced chicken similar in looks to deli product and definitely not smoked, but again with an apology but no explanation. I had ordered the brook trout and asked for the lemon butter creme sauce to be served on the side which it was. However, it was refrigerator cold and quite unappetizing that way. In contrast, the fish was tasty and cooked perfectly. I always ask for lemon wedges for my fish and the broccoli that they graciously substitute for potato, and then I ask again when it never seems to materialize. The server brought 2 narrow wedges without much juice. The temperature in the restaurant was quite chilly which always seem to be the case. Go for the food, tolerate the somewhat haphazard service, and take a sweater!
We had a nice table on the side patio and it was very nice. The weather was great so that helped. I had indicated on my reservation that it was for a special birthday, but that was completely ignored. That was very disappointing to me. The food was very delicious and I was able to stick to my dietary needs as well. Unfortunately, we received very little attention from our waiter and although I desperately needed a second glass of water, I did not get one. I had to flag him down to get a box and our check. For this price level (slightly overpriced), I expect better service!
However, with the atmosphere and great food that fits my dietary needs, we may stop back and give them another chance. Very, very disappointed that they completely missed the birthday notation though. You only have a BIG BIRTHDAY once every so often.
Service great as always! Tried poutine appetizer and skeptical at first, since it didn't taste like expected or presentation compared to Canada. However, flavors came together with the beef and fried cheese curds. Could use a bit more gravy. Chicken finger platter excellent (this is a comfort food that Carlyle does an awesome job on)! Blackened chicken pasta was just ok...not what we expected. Sauce very thick, not resembling Alfredo at all, as waiter explained later. Love this restaurant. Recommend!
Wonderful restaurant!! We don't have one in our area in Indiana which is our loss. I do recommend this place. I had a veg sandwich without the meat and they didn't charge me for the hamburger price like some restaurants do. Please go and relax at Carlyle Grill. You won't regret it!!
