    My husband,daughter & I dined for the second time at this little gem Sat. nite. Loved it even more. Husband had chopped steak & they actually did it more rare than medium-which he loved. Our daughter had broiled salmon w/ asparagus-she's a big salmon fan & she gave it an eager thumbs up. I had grilled chicken & shrimp & thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was friendly & professional. Ambience can't be beat & the bathrooms are a MUST SEE !!!

    We had a wonderful dinner. Amazing scallops as appetizer. Crawfish etoufee was delicious. Cajun rib eye was over cooked, wanted it medium rare but was more medium to well done. We did not send it back or make comment. Ann Marie was delightful, helpful and considerate. Desserts were awesome. Pistachio truffle and coconut ice cream were delicious.

    Seriously the best Cajun meal I have outside of New Orleans! Excellent, solicitous service with wait staff that really know the menu. Fresh fish and delicious choices!! Do not leave without getting the popcorn shrimp/crawfish! Not a low cal low fat meal but worth every bite!! Quality food with a real home town neighborhood feel. BYO BTW so bring your wine or beer!!

    We have been to Clementines many times and have never been disappointed with the food or service. From the moment you walk in you will be thrilled by the decor ! The food is New Orleans inspired and there is something for every taste. They always have specialty salads and special entries and of course great deserts! Chef Bobby does a great job and Michael will make you feel at home !

    Clementine's is the consumate dining experience. The servers are friendly, knowledgable and highly competent. The food is delicious and the portions are huge so sharing is encouraged. The place itself is a quirky, cozy homage to New Orleans. All together it's just a fabulous place for dinner.

    The food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic! I had the grilled salmon and it was the best I've ever had. The portion sizes were a little bigger than expected which was awesome. I'll definitely dine here again and would recommend it to all of my friends.

    We've dined at Clementines several times over the past few years. The dishes are always interesting and absolutely delicious. Our server, Mary, was excellent in her food description as well as her recommendations. She reminded us that salads and apps are large and can be shared. 5 of the six of us had the special Blackened Catfish and the special Eggplant entrees. OUTSTANDING! The Buttered cake for dessert is to die for!! Also enjoyed the con leche. I did not make any special requests when booking so I'm not faulting the restaurant on this: We were a table of 6. I should have asked for a round table in other room. We were at the rectangle table on left side and it was a bit tight. Round is always better if available.

    We are regulars at this restaurant- absolutely LOVE the food- have never been disappointed nor has anyone we have taken there. BUT-on this night the service was slow. The restaurant was very busy, and there were only 2 waitresses. It took at least 25 minutes for the waitress to take our order. Some of the entrees were on the cooler side when it was delivered - we were a large party and maybe they were waiting for all the food to be done so they could deliver it at the same time to us?? The problem with this restaurant is the one owner - he is sometimes so friendly and other times so downright short tempered and nasty. He has been that way to us and to others. You never know if you are going to be greeted by Dr.Jekyll or Mr. Hyde!

    Me and my fiancee went here over the weekend. We had heard good things but obviously had to see for ourselves. We were not disappointed one bit. The food from the moment we sat down was full of flavor (from the olive tapenade at your table to start to dessert). We loved all the food. The service was pretty good, no complaints. The decor was very dark and not our taste, would loved to have sat outside with the beautiful weather but oh well. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend this place to anyone.

    My wife and I came early on a week day, so the restaurant was very quiet. We were seated immediately and were the only ones there at 6:00. This is a BYOB; we brought wine and it was opened immediately. The food is Louisiana-style; some items on the menu looked too spicy for our tastes. I ordered a catfish special and it was one of the best fish dishes I have ever had (fried catfish with chunks of crawfish and sausage over a dauphine potato pancake, all drizzled with a nice sauce).

    Definitely the highlight of our five chicks weekend at the beach! The decor was so warm and interesting that we chose to dine inside instead. Every single dish was exquisite and impeccably done. We each had the tuna, crab cakes and shrimp dishes which were flavorful and cooked perfectly. The veggies were done just right and the baked brie for appetizer was to die for! And the truffles and banana foster for dessert was the perfect ending. We loved this place so much that we came back again two nites later before we left town. Michael was the perfect host...very entertaining and welcoming. We will definitely come back soon and make this place a ritual.

    Wanted a special restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday & chose Clementine's based on a recommendation of another friend & frequent diner. To put it mildly, the 4 of us were wowed by the food! This may have been our first occasion when we raved about our food! I had the crab cakes which were outstanding and am glad I chose the Jumbalaya as a side dish - so good, only wish they would market it as specialty food stores. And the bananas foster I shared with my wife was phenomenal. The ambiance is really cool, making you feel like you are dining is someone's house and quiet enough to actually have a conversation. Wives raved about the restroom & overall restaurant décor. Waitress was very sweet & efficient!

    Friendly service, they treat everyone like a VIP. Amazing decorations and always plenty to look at in the casual atmosphere. Food is always great that fills the belly and warms the soul. You will want to go back again and again to try all the different items on the menu. Portions are more than enough, but save room for desert because you will have a tough time choosing again. Always favorite tres leches cake is a standout, but don't discount the almond joy. Great thing is that they get you in and out in a reasonable time. If you go for the early seating, they move you along so they can seat the later. However, we didn't feel rushed at all. Great if you have somewhere to go after because you know you will be done on time.
