This is one of my favorite places and, as usual, the food was wonderful. I had the trout which was beautifully prepared with just the right amount of crispness. The service was impeccable without being intrusive. Our table was in front of french doors overlooking the garden, adding to the ambience. Wines are reasonally priced in comparison with other restaurants. Thumbs up to the staff for another great evening.

Still one of the best places in town for a quiet lunch or dinner, always feels upscale and private. Food is consistently delicious, bar area exceptional. The setting in multiple rooms allows for privacy and intimacy, whether for romantic experience or good conversation with good friends.

The entire staff was lovely for Mother's Day brunch from Management to Servers and Assistants. Even though they served 3 times the number of guests compared to a typical Sunday, everyone was calm, cool and collected. It was the right choice for a relaxing meal; no regrets. We enjoyed the variety of options for entrees and desserts on the fixed menu. Delicious! We typically don't eat desserts; however, we splurged! Their offerings were too enticing to pass up for our table. We will definitely return and have already recommended to friends.

It had been several years since I had eaten at 211 which had been one of my favorite brunch restaurants in Louisville. I love the ambiance of the older home with individual rooms for grouping diners. It makes for a more intimate experience. I was disappointed in the food on this visit. We were supposed to be served scones to start our brunch, but they did not arrive. I asked about them when our main entrees were served and suggested that they be prepared for us a a "to go" item. The french toast was very dry and tough to cut, even with a knife, which made it very difficult to eat. I think that the bread had not been soaked long enough for the egg mixture to penetrate the bread. My Dad ate the filet mignon brunch entree and liked it very much. I would like to compliment the bartender. We arrived and our table was not ready. The bartender noticed that we were waiting for our table and approached us with complimentary glasses of champagne. This was a very nice and generous offer, and more importantly, demonstrated that someone was paying attention to the customers' needs.

Every single aspect of our meal was perfect, even an off the menu wine suggestion that was superb. Jesse, our server, is way above average. She has almost become family. I had oysters for both my appetizer and dinner, and they were very fresh and perfectly prepared. Another joyful evening.

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.

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.

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.
