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

    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "We had wonderful service and the food was delish!! The presentation of the food was gorgeous. The servers were really warm and friendly making this a truly wonderful dining experience. I have recommended Clement to all. Two of my friends were there a few days ago and love it too. Braviisimo!!!"

  • "we were there for restaurant week. The ambience is very chic and the service is excellent. We were disappointed by the food. The quality was good, but we were expecting something more elaborated than a tasteless corn salad or a pasta you can easily cook at home. Fortunately, the rib was ok and the "taste of summer" salad and the desserts were excellent."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to The Clement for Restaurant week dinner and it was excellent! The food was amazing and the service was great! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others!"

  • "Some restaurants turn their nose down when you order from the restaurant week menu, NOT Clement! 5 star service, great food and an awesome experience. I would go back even if it wasn't restaurant week."

  • " Very impressed. Most everything was wonderful. Lovely, elegant atmosphere. Carefully prepared food with fresh, superb ingredients and preparation. The entrees were also tops, especially the sea bass and one of the best short ribs I have had. The short ribs were very tender with a superb sauce. Only let downs are in the bread and pastry area. Suggest they replace the bread and the variation of strawberry shortcake came up short. Good s'mores though, but portion a bit small. The waitstaff was very accommodating and professional. The atmosphere is elegant. Lovely room. Nice view of Fifth Avenue. Quiet. Perfect for a special date or a business meal. I look forward to returning."

  • "Went here for Restaurant Week dinner. I had the gazpacho, the sea bass and the chocolate s'more. Everything was delicious, flavorful, well-thought-out and beautifully presented. One of my new favorite restaurants. The service was excellent and the place was elegant."

  • "Fabulous food - imaginative flavor combinations, beautifully presented. Lovely wine selection, with beautiful bottles offered at all price levels. Excellent and very thoughtful service. It was the best meal we have had in years. We can't wait to eat at Clement again."

  • "Went for restraint week lunch, appetizer and entree are great, as for dessert I would recommend chocolate cake rather than strawberry shortcake. Great service and elegant atmosphere. Overall quite impressive in restaurant week experiences."

  • "Typical of Pennisula hotels, the food at Clement was sublime. We went for lunch during restaurant week. I had the gazpacho and fish while my companion had the corn salad and short ribs. Service was good; although, a bit rushed. The server took our appetizer plates before we were finished as he brought out our entrees prematurely. Not sure what the rush was considering the restaurant was half empty during the length of our meal."

  • "Fives has been reborn and remains very attractive and continues to offers an excellent dining experience."

  • "Everything was wonderful; the service was friendly and attentive while the food was fantastic. I went for restaurant week with two other people. This is a very classy restaurant and I was really impressed to see that they treated us with impeccable service even though we were spending significantly less than people ordering off of the regular menu. We made sure to tip them about 40% of the bill. The only complaint was that there were a lot of children there for dinner time and the noise was a bit loud. Since Clement is in a hotel this isn't too surprising. Overall it was a top notch pick for restaurant week and if I can afford it I'll be back."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Impeccable service! Everyone was polite and helpful, and followed up respectfully regarding the quality of the food and drinks. My only gripe is that the entree portions for lunch were a bit too large and unrefined compared to the elegant appetizers and desserts. The drinks are pricey but well-worth it. The location, sitting atop Fifth Aveune in a historic hotel, never gets old."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • " Dinner was pretty good. Dessert was terrific.The service was pretty good. The wine the waiter recommended was terrible - like it had been sitting open in a fridge for too long."

  • "Went there for Restaurant Week, our first impression was they did a good job on renovating this place! Very comfy and relaxing. Our table was next to the window overlooking the 5th Ave - nice view! Bread was so fresh and delicious. We had gazpacho w/ crab and the corn salad to start, and sea bass w/ duck broth as main course - all dishes were beautifully presented and tasted so DELICIOUS! had strawberry short cake for dessert - nicely decorated and YUMMY! Our waiter Kin was so friendly and helpful, he encouraged us to take our time to enjoy our meal. Will definitely go back."

  • "A great restaurant in midtown, tucked inside the Peninsula. Who knew a salad with corn and blueberries would be so pleasing to the taste buds! Every course was delicious. Our server was pleasant and his descriptions of the dishes were spot on. My friends and I will definitely be going back"

  • "as to what a meal in such a location would be like. The service was impeccable, but the staff cordial, and not snooty. We liked it a lot."

  • "Food, ambiance and service were very good. The short ribs and the gazpacho soup were wonderful. The servers were attentive and polite. There was a party going on but we were politely toldi t would end soon and it did."

  • "Everything was good. Ambience, food and service. We went there for restaurant week and all of my friends had fun. Just one tiny comment. The sea bass was good but additional salt would help. And they should also add more wine on there list. If Im not mistaken they only had 4 wines on the list. I also ordered the warm corn salad. It was goooood!! And the dessert was scrumptious. I would definitely recommend this place."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Dined at Clement during Restaurant Week and had the most wonderful experience. I ordered the warm corn salad for an appetizer and was pleasantly surprised by the blueberries in the salad. For entree, I had the black sea bass which tasted so fresh it seemed as if it was caught right before it arrived at the table. To complete the meal I had the strawberry shortcake which melted in my mouth. The wait staff was very attentive. They answered all of our questions and explained each dish as they came out to our table. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant again in the near future. Best Restaurant Week experience I have had thus far in all the years I've participated in RW."

  • "This was our best meal in NYC. Everything about it was perfect. I can't wait to return!"

  • "We were impressed by the knowledge of the wait staff as well as the quality and originality of the dishes. They execute the whole farm-to-table dining concept with flair."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Second time visiting this restaurant. Once for lunch and this time dinner. Both occasions food was delicious and very well presented. The appetizer salads were superb and generous in size. The sea bass and the short ribs done to perfection. Service, the best I have had in a very long time. Marco, our server explained each dish as he presented it. Recommendations for wine and champagne. Desserts were both good. Since it was Joan's birthday, they did a special added chocolate mousse dessert for her. Excellent."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "When I saw Clement come up as a New York Restaurant Week pick, I booked a dinner reservation to treat myself. Housed inside The Peninsula hotel, the restaurant itself is lovely, just as is the hotel. The service was fine, and the dinner selections for NYRW were interesting. The waiter steered me away from the short rib to the sea bass. The food arrived in an acceptable amount of time but, frankly, it just tasted like "hotel" food. Sort of that 'engineered' taste. I often look to the bread as being a tip to the food quality and the bread was hard as a rock and tasteless."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "After reading the bad reviews, I wanted to cancel the reservation. But I still went to Clement, and I was so glad that I was there. First, the servers were very nice. The food was good. We ordered the sea bass and the beef short rib, the sea bass was moist. The Smore cake and the strawberry cake was the highlight. I will come back."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We went to Clement for the Restaurant Week special. When the waiter learned we wanted wine by the glass, he pushed hard with recommendations that weren't featured as matching specials on the menu. Notably, he never brought us a wine list. Although most of us ordered the special wines on the menu, as they were well chosen to match the food and comfortably priced, one of our party fell victim to the waiter's urging and ordered one of his suggestions. He was less than pleased when we got the bill to see that his wine was more than twice as expensive as ours. It's a trick as old as the hills. It's bad enough to pull it, but if you're going to play that game at least give the customer a wine list so he can check the prices."

  • "My girlfriend and I visited Clemente during restaurant week. The restaurant was a little less than half full throughout our entire meal yet the service was lacking from the moment we were seated. Our waters were never refilled until our desserts were finished. We noticed everyone else's water cups were empty as well. Food took too long to come out for everyone in the restaurant, which is unacceptable as they only had 8 total items on the menu. The couple behind us actually fell asleep waiting for their desserts. Our dessert plates were sitting empty on our table for over 15 minutes before the hostess had to clear them herself as our waiter went missing. Black Sea bass and Spare Rib were both extremely dry and wouldn't recommend."

  • "Tried Clement for NYC restaurant week. Well worth it. Food was stupendous and service was impeccable"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Experience here gives Restaurant Week a bad name. Appetizer (corn salad) was good; main courses (overcooked and over sauced pasta or itsy bits bass filets) were mediocre; dessert (so-called strawberry shortcake) was pretty but tasteless altho friend's s'mores were nice; bread was either stale or warmed to cardboard. Waiter steered us kindly and alerted us to $9 coffee and $12 expresso. Handicapped guest needed to take 2 elevators — one was small and hand operated — to reach restaurant, which is pretty and has great view of Fifth Ave. but falls FAR SHORT in quality of food. Usually we return to Restaurant Week establishments. Will steer VERY clear of this one."

    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food wasn't as appetizing as it looked online and the presentation was fair for the high pricing. However, the service was impeccable...the service, unfortunately was the only good thing about the experience."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Superb, what a top dining experience! Flavor, taste, freshness, just incredible. Perfect informal/formal service, atmosphere quiet and lovely and beautiful. Above all, the wonderful food: Great combinations of complementary tastes in every dish, vivid in every bite and every ingredient. Overwhelming. Sounds like I'm the publicist, but I have no connection at all. From now on I want only to go here."

  • "Wonderful dining experience. Loved the shrimp caesar's salad. Shrimp plentiful and tasty. A also had the thin cup rust pizza. Also delicious. Enjoyed the mezza plate as well. Dim sum was average. Nothing to rave about. Sauce wasn't so tasty. Had a watered down taste to it. Ambiance is spectacular. Pricey!"

  • "A very expensive restaurant with mediocre food. The music from the bar overwhelms the atmosphere in the restaurant. During our meal right beside our table, the manager was yelling at our server for not bringing another table's check quickly enough. The food was well presented but a poor blend of flavors. Smoked puréed potatoes were so smoky nothing else came through. The only positive in this meal were the desserts but too little, too late to save this dining experience."
