Found this little treasure when I was looking for a late dinner after a movie. Lots of parking in the back. It's a cute place that is perfect for hanging out with friends. There's an outside patio and a roomy interior. There was a nice influx of people, creating a friendly buzz, but you were able to hold a conversation easily. Service was awesome and the food just as outstanding. I had the best sandwich I've ever had. Chunks of tender moist smoked salmon with creme fraiche, capers, and crisp cool cukecumbers cooked panini style creating a tender crisp bread. They have a great selection of beers. For desert I had nutella layered in a croissant. It's cooked panini style so the croissant becomes crisp with buttery layers, and the nuttella is warm and gooey. Superb way to end an evening. I highly recommend this place.

Right on Roosevelt, within walking distance of Film Bar and The Nash, this great bistro frequently features live music and always a good ambiance.

Nice simple atmosphere, clean well balanced dishes, relaxed vibe, good service.
A nice place for a comfortable break in the Roosevelt District.
I've been for lunch and dinner. We always feel that we were well treated, and enjoyed the food.

This is my favorite restaurant in the area near Roosevelt Row. They always have fantastic draft beers and sandwiches. On this trip I had the ultimate grilled cheese (prosciutto bacon, aged brie, smoked mozzarella, swiss) that comes with tomato bisque. I would highly recommend.

Carley's Bistro fit the bill for my husband and myself. He eats meat and am a veggie. Having tickets for a jazz concert at The Nash (see separate review).Carley's location was perfect, about 20 steps away from the concert venue. It is funky, fun and offers choices for any diet. The staff is particularly wonderful. Friendly, highly attentive and young and adorable. We sat at a high top for two and at at a very leisurely pace, starting 1:30 hours before the downbeat.

My hubby's roast beef sandwich on bread was delicious he said and my tomato-basil soup and beet salad combo was very tasty, but contained a bit too much oil in the salad. No matter, they have a full bar good choices from soup to nuts and deserves a visit.
