- A perfect Anniversary DinnerKarenVIPDined on 11/1/2014Thank you to the staff at 211 Clover Lane for making our Anniversary dinner so special. It was our first visit to the restaurant but it will not be our last. Everything here was fantastic -- the ambiance, the menu, the food, the service, the recognition of our Anniversary (complimentary dessert)! I had the goat cheese stuffed peppers as a starter and they were wonderful - for my main course I had the salmon, stone ground grits and spinach - all cooked to perfection and the best salmon I've ever had! My husband had the house salad and the walleye and he raved about both. Our server was wonderful - knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Thanks for a wonderful evening!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Never disappointedDiningOutKidDined on 10/11/2014211 Clover Lane is such a steady wonderful place to dine. I have never had a bad meal or had bad service. The flavor of the dining is great and they have an outstanding wine list. Can be a bit noisy if you're sitting next to the wrong table. They do have a recessed area for a larger party that feels very private.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

Very fresh ingredients. Will definitely return and soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great LunchScstaff2Dined on 9/27/2014I had lunch with a girlfriend on a Saturday afternoon. The food was excellent and there were several light, yet satisfying options. Price was great as we'll. The ambiance is definitely a girls' lunch, nice GNO, or a nice date with your SO. Probably not a "guys" choice for an everyday date but definitely great food and nice atmosphere. Fun to dress up a bit for lunch too!Special Features:
- Delicious LunchRKS612VIPDined on 9/16/2014Thoroughly enjoyed a birthday celebration lunch with eight women. All lunch entrees were delicious, especially the chicken curry, and the selection is great. Fresh ingredients, nice portions, fair prices. Fresh bread was served with olive oil. Desserts were a highlight, particularly the chocolate pot de crème and the apply tart... delicious. Service was attentive, and were able to enjoy a room just for our small group. Will be back for sure!Special Features:

Since moving to Louisville, this has become my favoriteSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AleneDined on 9/5/2014Always good and moderately quiet which is important to me. Trout is the best. The shrimp is a little too spicy. Bring back the leek tart.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/19/2014Difficult to find. Off the beaten path. Food, service, and atmosphere very nice. Tables a little too close together. Once more guests arrived, the noise level became distracting and it made having a quiet conversation impossible.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always HappyBummedVIPDined on 8/19/2014I love going to this local spot for lunch or dinner with girlfriends. I have never been disappointed with the food or atmosphere.

- Hidden GemmckroeffindyDined on 8/9/2014We ate at 211 Clover Lane on 8/9/14. Both the black grouper and the trout were very good. Everything was well prepared and the service was excellent. Our entrees took longer than expected and we were offered a free dessert. Nice wine list with reasonable prices. It is a bit difficult to find but worth the search.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/25/2014We celebrated a birthday and we had a lovely evening. Jessie was our server and did an outstanding job.

- Quaint Restaurantluv2eatDined on 6/6/2014Fried green tomatoes were some of the best I've ever had. Filet was very good but was topped with a cold pat herbed butter. Gratin potatoes were wonderful.
