    This became our new favorite restaurant! Food was amazing and Charles the table captain was perfect!! I have dietary issues and everything was prepared with attention to my needs in mind. Mostly, we appreciated the ambiance, the romantic atmosphere and such a lovely evening! Thank you!!

    The Carlyle is VERY expensive and the service isn't commensurate with the prices. The staff is very attentive but not particularly well trained. I took my sister-in-law to the Carlyle for a birthday lunch and three times, while she was still eating, the waiter tried to clear our plates. The rest of the staff seemed stiff and overly formal versus other restaurants I've been to in this price range. Equally offensive was I ordered a salad that was on the price-fixed menu ala carte and asked that grilled salmon be added atop the salad. They charged me for both the salad and a full salmon entree. I order a salad/salmon combo often and have never had a restaurant charge like that . Though, I could have challenged the charge, I didn't want to make things awkward, given that I was trying to make this lunch a nice experience for my sister-in-law. The Carlyle Hotel holds special significance for me, since my husband and I were married there 36 years ago, but I won't be returning to The Carlyle Restaurant.

    I called ahead to confirm that they were doing restaurant week and when we asked for the menu, they said that they already stopped on Friday. So we ended up having to pay DOUBLE for dinner!!

    I ate at the Carlyle for dinner during restaurant week. Restaurant week is the way to eat at the Carlyle. The food and beverage is very expensive. My food was excellent. I had the beet salad, gnocchi and the creme brûlée. My service on the other hand was not good. My waiter ignored me the entire time I was there. He treated me completely different than all his other tables. He didn’t introduce himself. I was only given the restaurant week menu. I was not told the specials. I had to ask for the wine and cocktail menus. I was dining alone but that is no excuse to treat me different than the other guests. He did offer me coffee or tea at the end of the meal. I had to flag a different server down so that I could get my bill. Because I couldn’t get my waiters attention. I will never return. The food was excellent but I don’t have to pay $35 for an entree to be ignored.

    We went to The restaurant week dinner and the food was mediocre even for a cheap restaurant week menu. I was totally surprised as we were expecting something much more special from the restaurant of this caliber. Even for $47 it felt like a waste of money...

    Had lunch during restaurant week. The ambience was fabulous and so was the food. The service could’ve been more attentive...had to ask for water twice and there was no checking in to see if everything was ok and would we like anything else. I highly recommend lunch . It was a treat all in all.

    The restaurant is lovely. I brought a friend for her birthday about five years ago and we loved it. This time the atmosphere and service were outstanding. The food was boring. I ordered the scallops. It was a soup full of potatoes with a few scallops. I did not like it. The lobster bisque and creme brûlée were delicious. The main courses were unimaginative. I asked for de caffeinated tea to keep my friends company while they had their coffee. I got a big pot of tea ( that cost $10) and drank one cup of tea. They did better last time.

    Lobster bisque was good should have been a little thicker rack of lamb was great desserts were the weak point chocolate cake was average creme brûlée was horrible, it tasted like soap it was the lavender flavor of flowers but it was more like soap service was great I would return

    Beautiful venue but poor service. Waiter kept reaching in front of my wife to serve me. My water glass was filled only once and I had to ask for a second glass. When I asked for the check it was a comedy routine by the wait staff deciding who was going to give it to me. It was like a game of hot potato. The lobster bisque was excellent but the halibut was over cooked. the brownie desert was dry and not very tasty. To bad this once excellent restaurant has fallen so far.

    Brunch last Sunday with my daughter was lovely. The hotel is decorated for the holidays, and it is absolutely gorgeous. The food, especially the French toast with berries, was delicious. Service, as always, was impeccable. This is my favorite spot in NYC for breakfast. Lunch in the library is always delightful, as well... and Bemelman's Bar cannot be beat for classic "Old New York" style with live piano and great people-watching. It's very popular and gets crowded, so arrive early to secure a table.
