    We made a 211 Clover Lane lunch reservation at 2:15 on Open Table with no problem. When we arrived at 2:15, we were told that they stop serving at 1:30. I don’t know if the fault for this confusion lies with 211 or Open Table, and I don’t really care. I have been dining at 211 pretty much from their beginning, and have never had a bad experience there. I have also been using Open Table for many years, and have had very few problems. Since we didn’t actually lunch at 211, I gave them the perfect review today that they almost always deserve! Claude

    The food at 211 Clover is routinely excellent. Honestly, my filet mignon was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten - and I eat out a lot! The staff is friendly, professional and accommodating of any special requests or dietary restrictions. The atmosphere is warm and "old school" but not stuffy - with nice background music, yet quiet enough to carry on conversation at normal levels. Just a really great restaurant.

    Food was of good quality, tasted awesome, service good. Details of space ignored. Floor had not been vacuumed, table linens were not changed and serve ware was not changed out after courses. Food was great. Will return because the food was great and maybe the details were do to being understaffed.

    211 is our go-to special-occasion place, and it always exceeds our expectations—doubly so this instance, after a three-year pandemic hiatus… the food was expertly prepared, the service was neighborly and attentive, and the atmosphere was as inviting and relaxed as we remembered. 211 is a gem!

    211 is one of our most favorite restaurants. the only down side for us on this trip was that the first table we were offered was next to the bar with maybe a dozen people standing next to snd around the table.

    Overall a very pleasant experience. The menu is simple but everything we had was delicious. The wine list looked good, but we opted for cocktails. I like how the layout of the tables is throughout a house- it felt intimate. One thing to note is that since the tables are closer together, it can be loud. We were in a room with two other parties. I’m not trying to be rude, but they were much older couples and were literally yelling at each other during dinner. It did make it hard for my husband and myself to hear. But I get that’s out of the restaurant’s control.

    Every single food item I had was delicous from the appetizers to the dessert! Love the decor and ambiance. Only one down side was we were seated in the back by the door on the far right and could smell someone smoking while we waiting for our drinks. It was either coming through the mail slot in the door or the vent in the floor where you would've been able to see the lower level except for a white towel shoved below the vent. This only happened right after getting seated and then went away. If it had happened throughout the meal I definitely would've complained but everything else was wonderful!!

    We had gone here for a date night a couple nights ago and ended up spending about $195 + $60 tip. We ordered 3 drinks, 3 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 desserts. Our appetizers were the spicy shrimp, beef carpaccio, and fried tomatoes. I liked the shrimp but wish it had a bit more sauce on them. The fried tomatoes were good although one of them the tomato was a bit too ripe. The beef carpaccio left us both with a bit of an upset stomach. Our drinks were made by our server and were delightful. Nice cold cocktails that I would order again if given the chance. My date got the filet mignon which I regretted not getting. It was a little bit more on the rare side instead of medium rare, but thankfully we aren’t picky with that. The string beans were perfectly seasoned, but the potato side it came with ended up being frozen on the inside. We didn’t say anything. I ordered the trout dish, and unfortunately didn’t realize there were capers on it. I hate capers, and the smell of it made me feel uneasy. I asked the server if there was anything else I could possibly get, since I really didn’t care for it. A couple minutes later he came out with it and said luckily there was already one in the window with no capers on it. I was excited and until I took a bite and I could smell the capers still, I assume the kitchen just took the capers off. I was rather disappointed, since if I had an allergy of some sort that could have been bad. I ended up eating as much as I could of it because I didn’t wanna be a bother again. The spinach was flavorless and the potatoes were lightly seasoned, i expected a bit more from this dish. Last we got 2 orders of creme brûlée, which was mediocre at its best. It wasn’t super smooth on the inside and had a different texture, we normally order this everywhere and anywhere we go if it offers it. The sugar on top was a bit too thick as well and hurt my teeth a bit. All in all, it was okay, I just think I spent a lot of money for a lower quality.

    Food was good but asparagus and Brussels needed seasoning. Oysters Rockefeller were good but made for people who don’t love oysters...too much bacon. Appetizer portion of four oysters was a bit skimpy for the price. Service was not good. Our server was slow to react, got our order wrong, left the wine glasses on the table and was just not friendly. The server also rounded his tip to the nearest dollar although that’s not what I wrote on the ticket. Unacceptable! Desert was good. Overall, our thoughts were...The food was good but uninspired, atmosphere was pretentious decor was dated and service was very disappointing.
