The great, quiet atmosphere makes this top choice for a dinner when conversation with friends is desired, along with fine food and drink, of course.

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.

It was my Birthday and I had previously been at 211 Clover and specifically chose your establishment again for the fine food great atmosphere and good Service. However, I was really disappointed in the way we were treated while waiting for our other couple to arrive. I had reached out on open table in advance to ask about arriving early and having one celebratory cocktail at the bar. No one responded. I know you sometimes may have people seated at the bar and in the bar area but absolutely no one was seated at the bar. I asked the silver wavy headed lady waiting the bar if I could get drinks at the bar why we waited and checked in with hostess. She looked at the bar and said let me clean it off and you can sit down. Well she did not clean off the bar and said she would be back and she did pour wine for customers Seated at a table in the bar. After she poured their wine she then came back to the bar looked at me and said just give me a few more seconds and I’ll be back. A very you g boy wiped the bar off. The lady never came back Never said I’m sorry but I will not be serving you drinks. Never just apologized and said we just don’t serve drinks at the bar. Just left us unattended. Very dismissive of our evening and the fact it was a special occasion. Our friends arrived and I saw the lady and told her we were being seated. I don’t think she had any intention of ever serving us a drink at the bar and just hoped time would go by and we would be out of her way. I would like a response to this issue. Our waiter was good but we sat there with no bread and they had to bake a new loaf which was good but should have been on the table. However he was polite and apologetic. Please respond about your bar area and the treatment we received. It was downright rude. I’ve tried calling and your mailbox is full.

This was out first dinner together with out of town family since the pandemic. We had a lovely table, great service and excellent food. Between the eight of us, we ordered almost everything on the menu and it was all delicious - halibut, trout, and steak were all perfectly cooked. Oysters Rockefeller were outstanding. Be sure to leave room for dessert. Grandsons especially enjoyed the pot de creme, chocolate pecan torte and pineapple upside down cake.

It was great to get back to one of our favorite restaurants as the world is opening post-Covid! I would never make this review public but wanted to share this with management. We had two issues. The first one you could not control but the table next to us was FaceTiming with their grandchildren on full volume. It went on for about 10 minutes and I wish management had stepped in. Second issue was that the service was horrible.Our server rarely check on us. It was at least 30 minutes before he took our drink order and much later before we placed our dinner order. The food was good and the ambience was lovely. I hope you can get back in your groove soon.

This was our first time at 211 Clover Lane on the recommendation from a friend. It is a neat little place with a nice outdoor seating area but unfortunately it was raining so we had to eat inside. As we entered the restaurant we stopped just inside the door and waited to be greeted. There was reception desk or sign to let us know where to go or what to do. A minute or so later a lady came out to direct us to the reception area. I must say that I would’ve liked to see some signs directing us where to go. We started with the 211 House Salad which was delicious! A little too light on the dressing for my taste (my wife would disagree) but the warm goat cheese made up for it. Then we had the Roasted Red Peppers (2) with Goat Cheese, Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts. Very very good but very very rich. It was too much for the two of us. More suited to share with another couple. For the main course I had the pork tenderloin with grits and brussel sprouts. It was AMAZING!. My wife had the halibut with potato purée and (substituted haricot vert) which she said was excellent. We will definitely be back.

As always...211 Clover Lane did not disappoint for our dinner. This was our Valentines Day dinner and from the "Old Fashioned" to salads to our main course each was delightfully delicious. And then of course....there's desert! We each had something different for each course even our Old Fashion's were a different bourbon and I'd be hard put top say anything was better than this or that.
