To get there you cross the luxury hallways of the Carlyle Rosewood , located within the upper Manhattan ,which is a pleasure in itself . The cafe interior is elegant , inviting even if a bit crowded . For us the most important achievement was to get a booking at one of the best tables , allowing us to enjoy... More

Elegant, historic power breakfast where random tourist is equally welcomed. Had breakfast buffet a few times and was lovely.

…the powers-that-be at the Carlyle do well to protect their reputation, their ambience and their menu as that is the way their clients like it. So do I. You know what to expect, it is well produced, with calm efficiency and respectful charm. The menu might not be innovative or fashionably chic but then go elsewhere if you want novelty.... More

Cafe Carlyle on Manhattan's upper east side was a big disappointment for us. Decor is very stylish, high end, but sky high prices (even for Manhattan) mediocre food, and lackluster service combine to make what should be a fun, relaxing evening into a bla night out. The only real redeeming part of the night was the performance by Joan Osborne,... More

Well. We went back again and saw Steve Tyrell for the second year in a row. Last year - we really enjoyed ourselves and everything from the service, to the food, to the performance. This year - well? Not so much. Please note - this was a close to $1,000 shell out for a night so I'm expecting, for 3... More

A first visit to this local gem, an elegant room, smallish and intimate, the service was very good, a good wine list. The food was good, a safe french inspired menu no alchemy here.Moved to the Jazz Bar after dinner with a totally different atmosphere, enjoyable but certainly not elegant and some guests were a little poorly behaved. It was... More

For the past 20 or so years, my wife and I have frequented Bemelmans Bar and Cafe Carlyle very regularly. We know most of the performers in both venues, as well as the bar, wait and management staffs, and have socialized with many of them outside of the Carlyle. We have also spent countless thousands of dollars there on drinks... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
