This is easily one of my favorite restaurants on the Upper East Side. I am in love with their complimentary bread -- I could eat that and that alone! The entrees are absolutely delicious - huge proportions for their price. I ordered the Amish chicken and I received a whole chicken. Very affordable as well! Reading the previous review: I question if they went to the right restaurant. I really cannot see The Carlyle serving remotely as atrocious sounding as that.

I read the other review & wondered how that persons experience happened in the beautiful & excellent restaurant that I went to for lunch this summer for restaurant week. The "captain" welcomed my companion & I as if we were regulars, though it was our first visit & he made sure our experience was superb. The food was very good: A delicious cold summer soup, a beautiful piece of halibut & a classic creme brulee for desert. The room was comfortable & beautiful. What stands out most though was the service, every need & wish anticipated without hovering. Maybe the other reviewer hit a bad night, but my experience here was top notch.

We had dinner there for restaurant week. I have never been served such low quality food ever, in any type of restaurant, high or low end. The salad consisted of soggy arugula with one tomato cut in 4 slices, all dressed in highly acidic vinegar. It was not edible. The pasta was overcooked angel hair with 6 or 7 pieces of cooked vegetables sprinkled with swiss cheese. A child could make a better pasta dish. Dessert? Store bought cheesecake. Why one would be asked to wear a jacket to eat a dinner that would not even be acceptable to serve in a school cafeteria is beyond me.
