The Cafe Carlyle Ratings and Reviews
The Cafe Caryle is a intimate supper club in the Caryle Hotel in NYC. The table are small, set up for two to four guest. I choose for my appetizer their lobster bisque which was very good. My wife choose the shrimp cocktail for hers, Nice large shrimp.
A word of warning. Since this is a super club, there is a charge for the show, which is a separate price from the food. Which depending on the performer(s), the day of the week and the time can cost over $100.00 per person. There is also a strict dress code. Gentlemen are required to wear jackets or sports coats.
wanted to do something memorable for our anniversary and I remembered the Carlyle. What a hidden jewel. A throw back to when men wore jackets and women dressed up for dinner. Service was impeccable and the food and wine were perfect. Megan Hilty's performance was fantastic. From a beautiful duet with her husband and band member Brian Gallagher, to Rainbow Connection from the Muppet movie we were moved. So nice to see a 4pc band instead of a person with a keyboard. Enjoyed our special night so much. Have not stopped talking about it.
My girlfriend an I dined at Cafe Carlyle to see Megan Hilty perform. I had purchased the tickets and dinner via a Gilt City voucher, so wasn't sure what to expect. The staff was incredibly accomodating and welcoming, despite the fact I was there on a coupon. We had a wonderful evening and the performance was superb. This is such a wonderful gem of a place that you'll only find in NYC. Absolutely loved it.
If it wasn't for the entertanment, we would NEVER go back there ...the price of the dinner was VERY high for the quality. In ea city of the best food in the world, this cafe needs cooking training....the food was very old fashion and everything overcooked. The service professional.
The show wasnt what I've expected. The singer Steve Tyrell is not a good singer. He may be a good showman, but very old fashioned.
The food was ok but very very modest in quantity, and the waiter was too busy too serve us with care. We had to borrow the Menu from the couple sitting next to us. The monday night shows with Woody Alen are for sure worth the money.
We wanted to go to a true New York Supper Club and see a live act and our research took us to the Cafe Carlyle. The food was great and we saw Lucille Arnaz who not only had a fabulous voice but was a true performer. We had a very memorable time. Our only regret is that we live in Australia and New York is such a long flight away that we can't go more often.
Took my mother-in-law for her 92 nd birthday -- she loves John Pizzarelli and he was great. He and Martin were sweet to her stopping to see her after concert. Our captain and server were fantastic and so was the food. First class all the way!!
I could not be happier.
At these prices, I expect stellar service.Kitchen and staff were clearly in the weeds.We weren't offered refills of our water; nor from the bread basket. Ordered dessert and coffee; coffee came (cold already) but then waited half an hour for dessert. No adjustment made to check; and I had to wolf down my dessert in the dark during the show, when we had specifically booked our dinner reservation almost 2 hours early so that we could eat a leisurely meal. Staff and kitchen clearly can't keep up with cabaret room demands, which is shocking after so many years. Would not go back except to see a performer at the top of my list; and then would only go for the F&B minimum. Food tasted good, but loses stars for lousy service. Disappointing.
food was great, service was exquisite but the entertainment was to die for.... Absolutely loved john lloyd young and i would strongly recommend that the carlyle invites him more than once or twice a year to perform... He is the best of all young singers (and old) out there
We booked to see Steve Tyrell in the late spot at 10:45pm. They seemed to be overrunning and eventually we were seated by 11:15pm though this wasn't a problem as gave great opportunity for people watching! Though expensive it was worth it, as if you're not wanting to spend then this isn't the place for you to go. As it was the late show food service was optional.
At best a so-so experience. The challenge is to serve the whole room close to simultaneously since this is a jazz performance venue, and it is not a challenge the restaurant is capable of meeting successfully. Our food was generally bland, and one fish entree was decidedly overcooked. Service is chaotic; you can't tell when you will see your server next. We were brought one incorrect appetizer and not sure who to ask to exchange it for the right one. Since they charge top dollar (and the credit slip has a blank for tipping the captain), I was expecting very good food and excellent, caring service, with an old-world feel (which I like). None of this happened, including the latter; it felt more like contemporary commerce than dining elegance.
The food and service were excellent, but we got there for the incredibly good entertainment!
There is no place like the Carlyle for the quality of service, good food, ambience, quiet, and the fabulous
entertainers like Barbara Cook and John Pizzarelli. We saw the Modern Jazz Quartet there many
years ago. We watch for who is playing there and head for NYC for an incomparable evening of
food and music.
We found the bar to be exceptionally noisy and very crowded, as well as EXPENSIVE! 2 cocktails - $58. Cafe was
also very crowded, but entertainment was exceptional. Service was fair. They seated us (2) and we waited about 20 minutes before they came to take our drink order. The 3 more tables were seated and the servers took care of them first.
