The Clinton House
We started off with the bakedWe started off with the baked brie and fruit- a unique appetizer out, indeed. It was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS and worth coming back for. The salmon and salad were good. My mom ordered the Shrimp Scampi- that was the only thing none of us cared for. It was served in a cream-based sauce. In my opinion, serving a cream-based sauce and calling it a Scampi is very misleading and quite frankly, erroneous. It was not what we were expecting nor was it what we wanted when we ordered the dish. The server was very nice and attentive but knew little about the food. She could not tell us what was in the sauce. The atmosphere was beautiful.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceThe food was very good and the service was outstanding! Not a place to carb count because the bread is delicious. Not a great place for kids because they charge full fair for thin chicken pieces. Limited salad dressing choices.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMhuge portionsWe brought most of our dinners home.

Food wasHad a lovely time. Food was really good and service was friendly. We were dining fairly late and the only negative was that they had started cleaning out the cappacino machine before we ordered coffee so we could not get that.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss this Gem!Where do I begin? The food was spectacular. I had the Beef Wellington, superb presentation, and the taste, out of this world! My husband had the Chicken Mozzarella, which had a type of francaise sauce, he was very impressed, saying how delicious his meal was. Very romantic also, with a view of the fireplace. We had the best time, The Clinton House really knows how to take care of you. Can't wait till the next time!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe just love the whole experienceWe just love the whole experience we have at the Clinton House.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPA visitorsThis was our second time dining at the Clinton House and we will definitely go back.

The restaurant is far enough from the bar, but close enough to hear the live music. My only critique would be that the tables felt too close.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHave not been to the ClintonHave not been to the Clinton House in 15 years since moving from the area ... still a great place with a creative menu.

We have had many special celebrations at the restaurant as well.
Absolutely a great place to have a wonderful dinner.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were greeted before weWe were greeted before we sat down but the management did not come around and disappeared when we left the resturant. This was our 2nd experience and the last time we were greeted as we left. We had alot of fun anyway and maybe they thought we were too loud. We stayed until closing in the dining area so I was not sure if they wanted to turn over tables.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMClinton House is always aClinton House is always a fine dining experience. Warm, fresh bread opens the meal. Very tasty soups and complex salads, and you never have to ask for more of their delicious bleu cheese dressing on your salad. Had a king cut prime rib that was out of this world, prepared just as I requested. My wife had a pan-seared scallops dish that she really enjoyed. The portions are more than ample, and you never leave hungry. No scrimping on the spirits or desserts, either. The service is more than attentive, and despite the crowd, we never waited for a course . . . but never felt rushed, either. Overall, a very fine dining experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Old restaurantGreat food. Old restaurant feel. Good ambiance. A great place for any occasion.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, andThe food was excellent, and I am a NYC foodie! Lunch was "just" fresh, well-prepared, and did not try too hard to be "nouveau". We went there on a snowy day and the fireplace was filled with a lovely fire. The ambiance was fine. The attached bakery allowed me to take some home-made goodies home to my family. I will definitely go again and have already made plans to do so.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Clinton House!

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food well prepared. It's anything but flashy, a local gem, dark yet cozy. I drove 1.5 hours for this lunch meeting and felt that the restaurant didn't disappoint.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
