    The bar in the front is a great place for lunch alone or with a friend. You can't go wrong with soup and a salad, and they don't turn up their noses if you order tea or coffee.

    Brunch-brioche french toast/bacon/eggs (scrambled) home fries. Definitely some of the BEST french toast i have ever eaten. Service was/is excellent.

    Amazing from start to finish! Deviled eggs were delicious. Salmon was cooked to perfection and the white chocolate bread pudding was a great way to end the meal!

    The doughnut things with that yummy butter they bring with it were great. Underwhelmed by the eggs Benedict though. My homemade Hollandaise sauce is much better. I might go back to try other things.

    Favorite place in Shirlington for both dinner and brunch. All seafood dishes are great, esp. crab cakes. You have to order the lobster bisque.

    The flour less chocolate waffle is wonderful! My favorite entrees are the Hong Kong Sea Bass and the Sesame Crusted Seared Rare Tuna Salad. Love the Warm goat cheese and spiced pecan salad too!

    The patio setting was really nice along with the wait staff. No reservation option offered. They did offer a call ahead option with was kind of weird to me but it worked out.

    The Bitches Say: D. Stick to Carlyle's dinner menu, skip the brunch, unless you’re going for baked goods and friendly people. The Bitches deemed Carlyle as the Worst Brunch Across the River in 2013!

    The spinach artichoke dip is awesome, as was the parmesan and herb crusted flounder, and you cannot miss the chocolate waffle dessert. Amazing dinner, and worth the wait!
