The food was amazing, homemade quality and the service was incomparable. The menu is small so review the menu before reserving. Also, they update the menu with each season so I will definitely revisit in autumn... Bon appetite

This was my first time at The Carlyle. I always heard wonderful things and finally made it here. The Tomahawk was amazing, melted in your mouth. Beautiful restaurant with top notch friendly & professional staff/service. I’ll be back very soon.

I’ve always loved the ambiance ~ ....but the food is not on par with many of the amazing NY restaurants ....the Caesar salad was the ‘worst’ I’ve ever had ‘anywhere’ ; sauce too thick & way too salty

Had to ask for water glasses to be filled - this shld be an automatic

We had read good things about this classy hotel dining room and were glad to experience the .excellent food and polished service. My lobster bisque was flavourful and a perfect size. My partner had the smoked salmon before his prime rib dinner. My salmon was cooked just right with a crispy skin. Desserts included a lemon curd tart and a NY cheesecake with strawberries and pistachios which were also special. We will visit again on a future trip to NYC!

This was my first experience at the Carlyle and I cannot wait to return again and again. Attention to details, service, food; the whole experience met and exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for welcoming us following our engagement. We look forward to returning in the fall and enjoying a show at the Cafe Carlyle and spending the night at the hotel.

I had been wanting to dine at the Carlyle for months. I watched a special called, "ALWAYS AT THE CARLYLE" and I knew I had to experience it for myself. Let me say it did not disappoint! It was everything and more I thought it would be. From the moment we stepped out of the car the service we impeccable. The Carlyle is customer service at it's best. I know this hotel/restaurant has served legendary guests and we felt the service we received was equal to theirs. Our Captain Michael and the rest of the staff gave us a dining experience we will never forget. And the food...it was perfection! I cannot wait to make my reservations for the next time! If you ever have to chance to dine here I encourage you to do so.

THE ONLY PLACE to meet. It remains, after 35 years, my favorite destination to bring people from out of town, or in town. There is nothing like it. The elegance, the understated service, the wonderful food and the feeling of being transported to life as it should be.

We so enjoyed our Wedding Celebrating on June 30, 2019, Sunday Morning Brunch. Every detail was taken care of by the Jennette, Michael, and the entire dining room staff. We can't say enough about how perfect the experience was. The food was outstanding and perfect for our morning wedding celebration. Our 4 family members who made up our wedding party were very thrilled with every aspect of The Carlyle execution of service.

When I contacted The Carlyle and was put in touch with Jennette. She was courteous and very pleasant to speak to as she took my information and my request for the table set-up, cake order and delivery, and other details for our special dining event.

My husband I and want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who helped to make our special day even that much more memorable.

As a frequent guest of The Carlyle's BEMELMANS BAR (Negronis are my drink of choice) when we visit New York City we could think of a better place to hold our wedding celebration.

We look forward to our next visit when in New York City. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Alejandro Ramon and Robert (Bob) Knight

My sister and I dined for the first time at The Carlyle Restaurant after having treatments at the hotel's salon. It was a delightful experience. The food was delicious and the ambiance was lovely. The service was excellent. Norbert and all the staff were attentive without being overbearing and warmly welcomed us and attended to us like we were long-time customers. We had the prix-fixe lunch and it is an excellent bargain considering the ambiance and the quality of the food. we will definitely return!!

The dining room is lovely and the service good but the food was expensive and not very good in my opinion.The two starters were reasonably good but the main courses were not value for money nor were they very tasty .
I had salmon with mashed potatoes as a side.The plates were stone cold including the side dish.the salmon was warm at best and the potatoes cold .Even if the food had been better based on portion sizes not value for money The vegatable bed the salmon was on was not to my taste at all-but other people might have liked it.
.
As this was a birthday treat we shared a sweet but the pastry was hard and we thought tasted a little stale.
The birthday treat was not a success and we will not return.
