Six of us visited the café for lunch. The food was plentiful but a sandwich with just warm fries didn't work for me. Decent value only because of the offer, otherwise would have been very expensive.

We saw it was quite a touristic place but we were only looking for some drinks and thought would be ok... Do not even think of sitting in this place! Disgusting drinks, they charged extra for a huge size of drink that we did not ordered and the service was very rude!

I went to The Carlyle Cafe for dinner. At the time it was happy hour so the waiters lured us with 50% off food and (some) drinks. I ordered the cuban plate. It tasted very good but i wouldn't have paid the full price for it. My 2 friends shared a 60oz cocktail thinking it was 50% off but it... More

We loved stay in this the Carlyle for our first restaurant in Miami Beach. Ideally located in ocean drive. Food was 50% off at 8pm ! So we enjoy calamari, pasta and pizza ( everything was tasty with huge portion) and a massive cocktail super strong and tasty. Everything was nice. Thank you

The food was good- the French toast was really delicious. The prices weren't awful for the amount of food you get. The water tasted weird and had stuff floating in it. I didn't ask for another because everyone there looked annoyed and we're flirting with the manager ( I assume). Would I eat here again- probably not because of the... More

One word, shocking! The food was so bad I cannot describe it but the real shocker was the frozen cocktails. I didn't have one but my friend did. The menu isn't very clear on the price which wouldn't be so bad if they weren't $45!!!!!! But the worst thing was the toilets with poo covered walls, check the photos. Shambles... More

Half Price menu is a good ploy, but the half price is probably the fair price for the quality of food. As others have said the real killer is the price of drinks, a good 50% more than other restaurants on Ocean's Drive. Service was really poor, staff were arrogant, a 20% service charge is added to all bill's, pretty... More

Felt ripped off! When walking on ocean in Miami Beach the restaurants try to sway you to eat at their place. Carlyle had gal saying all lunch 1/2 price menu prices where high but 1/2 priced seemed fare we ordered our food ahi salad and Pizza food was good but definitely not worth full prices but 1/2 fair The scam...
