211 Clover Lane Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The meal was perfect from beginning to end. The Lyonnaise salad was delicious with just the right amount of dressing.
My guests found the house salad with baked goat cheese to be perfect. Oysters on the half shell were fresh and tasted amazing.
I had the ribeye. It was perfectly prepared. My guests had the filet and the scallops. She said the filet was the best she’d ever had. He said the scallops rivaled those he’d had in Cape Cod.
We shared a Chocolate pot de creme for dessert. Superb!
Sloane was our server. She’s lovely and gracious, made my guests feel welcome and special. 211 is my favorite restaurant in Louisville. The food is the best, but so are the wonderful staff. The atmosphere is unlike anywhere else. Beautiful, understated, yet so comfortable. I feel like family here. Thank you!
Food is always very good. I frequently recommend 211 Clover to my friends. The gentleman server is friendly and patient with ladies who talk before they make menu choice! Couple of suggestions would be to make the bar area more upscale and inviting and intimate lighting would be great. In private dining rooms same on the lighting so they are less austere. Another small suggestion would be to have the windows cleaned. The sun was coming in where we sat and the windows were dirty.
Love coming to Clover and had our family dine in the back dining room during Christmas. We are returning this coming holiday.
I hadn't been to brunch at 211 Clover in quite some time. I was so happy I returned. The fixed-price menu, at $15, was well thought out and the portions were generous. The food was delicious! I had the trout and will go back just for that.
Our server was quite good and very knowledgeable. Love this place!
Amazing sun filled dining rooms as if you are in a private home in the French countryside. Welcoming family-like reception. Our head waiter Abel was genuine and professional. He made our experience special. The star as it should be is the delicious cuisine. Balanced flavors with a subtle French touch, such as perfectly dressed greens and gently seasoned grains to showcase perfectly prepared fish. Trout, Salmon and the house and Bibb salads were must haves. Great for any occasion.
Although not hip or trendy, 211 Clover is charming. Feels like a renovated farmhouse inside with some quaint private rooms for larger parties. The hostesses were friendly and warm upon both our entrance and exit. Our waitress was personable, very attentive and professional. Food was solid. 3 of us enjoyed the filet and another the pork chop. All of us agreed, it’s a lovely option. Not too contrived; quality ingredients; consistent.
Overpriced and underseasoned. The servers were attentive and pleasant but I am one of those people who REALLY does not appreciate a server making an unsolicited offering about their preferences....really should not do that unless a diner very specifically requests it!
The cocktails were truly excellent.
The radish salad was dreadful, rubbery flavorless radishes with such an acidic dressing that I could not eat it. Good quality smoky bleu cheese was all that I could consume.
The duck entree was completely underseasoned....decent quality and properly cooked but just not worth having. The elderberry gastrique was invisible.
Bouillabaisse special was small for the price and both pieces of fish overcooked.
The ambience was quite pleasant. Very quiet in the restaurant the evening that we dined.
Service was excellent as was the fillet mignon. Roasted red peppers were out of this world!! Green beans were tasteless. Blah! Red snapper and roasted cauliflower were very good. Funny/unusual things: 1) There was a speaker system set up throughout the restaurant but no music. 2) very old building needed some basic maintenance. Floors were very old hardwood that needed updating. Although the food was very good, for that price I could have gone to a more upscale place.
We, and Louisville, are extremely fortunate to have 211 Clover. 211 is outstanding,
from the moment one is greeted for seating,
atmosphere is lovely, menu selection divine,
presentation delightful, meal spectacular and friendliness of staff is beyond wonderful.
We cannot express our true feelings about 211 Clover, the many wonderful times we enjoy, along with friends. We are grateful to the lovely gentleman who makes this possible for Louisville.
Always reliable and classy in a relaxed sort of way. Well chosen & balanced menu items & excellently curated wine choices. Be it dinner, lunch or brunch - it’s hard to miss here - especially if you like a french or continental ambiance. The outdoor area is a great spot for eating or to just to view thru the windows from inside. This place is a delight in the very midst of St. Matthews but tucked into its own little world apart.
211 has a great ambiance. the food is consistently delicious, especially the fresh trout. It has good wine list and plenty of cocktail choices. One of the nicest aspects of the restaurant is that it is quiet. You can actually hear the conversation at your table and there is plenty of distance between tables, and only a few tables in each room. Thus privacy and quiet are optimum which is rare these days as noise, loud music, and crammed together tables seem to be the fashion. I should also mention that the service is excellent as is the desert list. Definitely one of the very top restaurants in town.
