Reliably good food and great place to have a quiet dinner. Nice to have Verlasso salmon on the menu (but it changes), and usually one other fish - a nice variety, for a small restaurant. Also a very nice small private dining room.

The food was great as well as the atmosphere. Not an everyday dining location for my budget but it has made the short list for when i want to splurge a little.

I ate here almost twenty years ago and I wasn’t impressed. Guess what: Nothing has changed. My parents and I have lunch every Wednesday and Mom decided on this restaurant for her “turn”. The restaurant itself is lovely. The food, however, bland and forgettable. My stepdad chose the pasta dish and he said he would rather have Chef Boy Ardee. Mom’s BLT was nothing extraordinary and my salad was average. In fact they only had two dressings: I’ll call them sour one and more sour. Why not go with something tried and true like a balsamic vinaigrette? I understand shying away from typical dressings. But please have more than two options. I wish I had gone with oil and vinegar. The worst part of the meal was the service. I don’t think he told us his name but he seemed agitated he had to wait on us. He was harried the entire time we were seated and I can honestly say he is the worst server I’ve had in quite some time. Needless to say we won’t return to 211 Clover Lane.

First time at 2:11 Clover. Walking into the restaurant, I really was immediately impressed with the charming nature of what seem to be a house turned into a restaurant type environment, even though this is an a shopping type of complex.

We were there for lunch, and seated and greeted promptly. Everything on the menu looked superb. I had a ham sandwich, which doesn’t sound too exciting, but it was very good. My companions had the trout in the salmon, and all enjoyed it very much.

Had a great meal but especially wonderful service. Our waitress (shoulder length brown hair) was so nice and accommodating. And then there was a bartender named James who was THE BEST. Definitely go and sit at the bar for a drink or two with him. Wednesday it’s half price bottles of wine!

Perhaps we suffered from high expectations, but 211 Clover missed the mark somewhat. It was busy and our server was rushed. We liked the bread, although it was doled out meagrely one slice at a time. The tomato consumme was nice, luscious even, but my trout had soggy skin, no seasoning, overcooked spinach and limp potatoes. My friend liked the goat cheese in her otherwise pedestrian salad, but my other friend thought the penne was blah. She barely touched it and our server spoke not a word about it. We asked who made the bread and he couldn't answer and didn't bother to find out, only responded with "one of our vendors." For such high prices, I wanted much more. Won't be back soon.

Had lunch. Reduced menu compared to the evening. All the food was of top quality with the only complaint being the overly eggy, non-creamy, creme brulé. Wine was excellent (Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon). Service was good. I will return for an evening meal soon.

Incredible dinner experience for our group of five. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and shown to a beautiful table with white linens and flowers in a lovely room of the restaurant. From cocktails to appetizers, main course and desserts, everything was superb. Flavors were fantastic and food was cooked to perfection. The evening couldn’t have been better!

The staff was attentive, prompt, and thoughtful. The way they space the tables keeps the dining area peaceful and quite...so it was easy to carry on a conversation
We had the pork chop with Sauce Robert. I had not had Sauce Robert since the days of fondue in the 70’s. It was sssooooo good.
I will go back so that I can work my way through the menu Plus the wait staff was exceptional!

211 Clover is one of my favorite restaurants.
The entrees are diverse, the presentation is lovely and the food is delicious.
They have fresh flowers and tablecloths on their table in a county french atmosphere.
They have an experienced staff who aims to please the customer.
It’s quiet and you can linger without ever feeling rushed in or rushed out.
211 Clover has a separate bar area as well as a space for a larger group.
My mom and I have been dining there for years and we love to dine at 211 Clover as it’s a true dining pleasure.
