    We met up with friends to celebrate my husband’s birthday, and it was our first visit to the Carlile Room. We loved everything! The cocktails were outstanding, and the food was delicious. Our server, Dave was charming and attentive, and really made our evening more fun and special. I just can’t say enough about how great Dave was! We really appreciated the fabulous service! We will definitely be back to the Carlile Room!

    Ambiance is lacking. Sat on high stools at small table. Paper napkins for a upper end restaurant. Pork chop snd french onion soup were outstanding.Skagit chicken Schnitzel was a bit dry. Server Dave did a great job. Prices were reasonable

    A fun and vibrant evening for dinner. The place can get a bit loud, esp before paramount performances, but the food is delicious and the service the past two times I’ve been were wonderful. Tom Douglas does a great job changing up the menu regularly too.

    Great spot for pre-theater eats! We had a lovely visit dining before Moulin Rouge, and service was quick given our time constraint. *Note: Menu is very limited for non-carnivores, but the options available are tasty! Goat cheese fondue is savory and mouth watering, must try!

    We had a lovely dinner before heading to a show at the Paramount. Everything we ordered was delicious, we shared an order of squash fritters and focaccia. Hubby had the French onion soup and I had a Caesar salad with chicken schnitzel. The service was fantastic. We will definitely return.

    Decent, but not special food. Very crowded seating. Very noisy. Mostly theatre patrons having dinner before the show. Don’t go until after the theatre has begun across the street. Service was exceptional, especially given the crowd.

    Chicken was way overcooked and would have preferred more vegetables. Two huge pieces of breaded chicken, overdone and dry. Very tiny portion of sides which I thought odd.
