A word from Clement
Clement seamlessly blends an elegantly modern aesthetic for Chef de Cuisine Brandon Kida’s Contemporary American cuisine focusing on locally-sourced ingredients from the Northeast. Located in the Forbes Five Star-rated Peninsula New York hotel, Clement overlooks bustling Fifth Avenue. Designed by the international award-winning design firm, Yabu Pushelberg, the restaurant feels like a quintessential New York home, with different rooms that cater to a range of moods, desires and occasions. Private and semi-private dining areas are available.

Adjacent to Clement, The Bar offers a bewitching menu of suggested and made-to-order cocktails, a selection of wines and champagnes available by the glass, and small plates echoing the Clement menu with a touch of an Asian influence as a nod to the hotel company’s heritage.

Diner Reviews
  • "We loved everything! The service was excellent and the food was just wonderful and the view of Fifth Avenue was lovely! Can't wait to go again."

  • "The main restaurant at the Peninsula Hotel, Clement has recently opened after a superb renovation of 555. The cuisine is adventuresome, with a few dishes too unusual for my taste. "Locally sourced" and oriented towards fish, the lunch menu also has a very fine series of salads. Chef is very adept at special courses, Sushi especially. The lobster roll on an industrial croissant is to be avoided, at least the pastry part. Very good wine list - at premium prices for the better items. Ideal for the relaxed business lunch or meal with friends. The far room is the finest but also the loudest. If you want a top coffee or tea, have it at the Gotham Bar across the hotel, rather than at Clement."

  • "I was not expecting a great meal from this newly opened Peninsula restaurant but was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good from the chef's lobster amuse Bouche to my scallops degustation and Porcelet choices. All delicious. The dessert was the biggest disappointment dropping my review from very good to good. All of the desserts in my party were marginal - not even good. If you don't eat desserts you will leave happy, otherwise . . . Service could have been paced a little faster considering the restaurant was only 1/2 full on a Saturday night. A few tweaks and this restaurant could be a winner!"

  • "At its heart Clement is still a hotel restaurant. The food is decent, but the prices are just too high, especially on the cocktails (~$25) and coffee ($9, poured from a carafe). Would only recommend if you're staying at the hotel, have money to burn, and don't have the time or desire to wander."

  • "The food is incredible, truly artistic, combined with top service. We were pampered for 2 hours. Loved it! Prices are high, but worth it for those special occasions every now and then."

  • "So I went there. The famed "Clement", in the well known hotel Peninsula. I ordered the Scallops, followed by the porcelet. No dessert. The food is a-mazing. But the service ... let's say that I wasn't even done with my course that someone was already ready to take it away to bring the next one. It was a bit feeling like a race: I have to be faster than the service. Also, I paid the check in cash. The amount ended in "13", but the waiter brought me the change as if the amount was "31". Did he consider me as a tourist? I don't know, but I did not like the fact that it was either a mistake - in that kind of place you don't make mistake on the change - or intentional."

  • "The food, ambience and service were terrific.We had a fabulous pork dish, as well as an expertly prepared lobster entrée. The only negative is the wine by the glass selection and prices. The wines are not that special and the prices were at the gouging level. This needs to be corrected for me to return."

  • "The Clement (formerly FIVES) is perfect for a gourmet, leisurely lunch. -- not to be rushed. The beet salad was excellent, and the lobster dish was outstanding. I really liked the staff, too --attentive, helpful and respectful without hovering. It has a nice ambiance, although I preferred the decor of the front room (vs. the soft orange lighting in the back area). The front has an Asian influence in soft grays and browns with interesting panels on the walls. Loved that each table had different flowers in different vases. Details. The whole dining experience was wonderful. Rather expensive, but worth it -- one of my favorite restaurants!"

  • "Lovely oysters, cocktails, sampler plate AKA "market tasting plate", generous omelet, beautiful and tasty basket of pastries. Why was the bacon so overcooked? Still quite delicious, didn't realize one must specify doneness with bacon."

  • "Lovely new decor; delicious food -best salmon - melted in mouth. Belgium waffle rivaled ones eaten in Briussels. Good service. Ambience broken by music, at times, too loud. Hard to hear conversation."

  • "Overpriced, underwhelming. A $20 margarita is a bit much for any palate and pocketbook. Food disappointingly mediocre."

  • "Clement at the Peninsula just reopened and it's a little too precious for me. Ladies who lunch, go for it. Tiny portions at huge prices."

  • "Breakfast menu was fairly limited. The frittata was somewhat bland. Colleague who chose the granola and berries was not impressed. Service was a bit spotty and not overly attentive. Good location for a business breakfast. Not much privacy and mediocre food/service"

  • "the new restaurant at the pennisula was a disappointment. we only had breakfasts but the food was average. pastries were good but the coffee, eggs, etc only average. the cost of the meals very high and for the pennisula the quality was not there. why is it hotels have a problem making food quality a priority?"
