Cafe Clover Ratings and Reviews
Excellent dinner experience. Wait staff was friendly and easily pointed out what the vegan options were on the menu (there are plenty!). Everything we ordered was delicious - drinks, apps, mains and desserts. I’ll definitely be back to try their other menus!
Been to clover several times over the years in small groups and big. It’s been a great experience every time. For a vegetarian the options are limited but they are different and so good. Love the vibe there. The decor itself feels trendy and cozy in kinda of a retro style.
The staff at Cafe Clover are so focused on providing warm and welcoming service that if the food wasn’t so delicious, I would probably want to go back again just to enjoy a glass of Sancere and people watch on 6th Avenue. From the hostess, to the bartenders, to our incredibly attentive server Ricky, my friend and I felt so taken care of. My friend had the striped bass and I had the risotto (minus mushrooms) and we both ate every delicious bite. And the music was at the perfect setting for conversation but not so low that I didn’t get to enjoy every tune from Grace Jones, to D’Angelo, to Slick Rick. Café Clover is a great spot for a quick glass of wine, a cozy date, or leisurely dinner with a small group of friends. I will definitely be back.
Our server was slow, and unatttentive despite the dining room not being filled, and that there seemed to be at least 3 other servers milling around. I felt like we couldn’t even get water refills, and everyone else had a bottle of water on their table. I had another strange bar experience where I (Asian female) was first at the bar and to save a seat for my friend; and a white male arrived AFTER me, and took MY seat that I was reserving despite my wine glass - and the hostess and bartender asked ME to sacrifice my reserved seat instead of his - and approached me not once, but TWICE. I clearly pointed out, I was first, and I sure didn’t hear them ask him to give up his saved seat, and firmly stood my ground waiting for my friend for another 10 minutes before our reservation began. What a joke.
Food and service was great. Pleased that my table for 2 was not jammed up next to other tables and I could focus on my own food and conversation. Bar area was a little tight while waiting for table, wish there was more area to linger. But overall a great experience. Hostess was very nice and the wait staff very friendly.
One of the top restaurants we've been to for health and nutrition. Food was beyond awesome as was the entire experience. Inside dining room was adorable and cozy with the big windows open and a lovely breeze coming thru. Staff was fantastic, never waiting or needing anything. Highly recommended Cafe Clover. Seasonal menu too, can't wait to see what else they can create! We will definitely be back!
Very nice servers. I've eaten here several times, food is good but not great sometimes. Your 12 oz steak is utterly overpriced. It doesn't cost that much at a high end steakhouse!! Yes it's tasty but It irritated us and would not have bought it except one person was not in more for fish etc. Too much turmeric in dishes too, not everyone's fancy. I think your menu needs some reconfiguring pricewise and more. Lovely spot though
Wonderful looking menu with healthy options and some vegan options.
Exceptional first class service
“Healthy” does not only mean lots of salad, vegetables, and seeds. It needs to be well prepared as well. (Eg:ABC -V).
Only the service and the menu fit the price but definitely not the food.
Overall the ambiance is very nice. The service was perfunctory at best, meaning the waiter did what was required, but absolutely nothing else. The biggest issue however is the portion size. At $36 dollars for a piece of halibut, the portion size was insulting. Its too bad because the place had potential, but this is NYC, so there are many other places that I can be fleeced by over priced mediocrity.
2 stars for the greeting and ambiance.
Zero for everything else.
The service: The server was aloof, slow and borderline surly.
The food: I had a Beet and Mushroom Veggie Burger. I saw that another reviewer called it Mediocre. That is a pretty generous description. It was horrible -- greasy, grainy and tasteless. The bun sat like a hockey pick on top of the greasy monstrosity of a burger. I coupled that with sweet potato home fries -- the 'fries' were a slimy greasy mess. If the exec chef spent as much cookbooks at he did on grease, the restaurant _might_ get another star.
I won't be back -- I suggest you avoid this place as well.
The menu looks really good but the food is okay. Walking in the hostess was really nice (props to her) but after sitting down the staff wasn't particularly personable and pushed us to order. Our food came out in minutes. We weren't looking for fast food and everything felt pre prepared. The avocado toast was good, but how can you mess that up? The chicken sausage was completely unappetizing and didn't even seem cooked/heated. No one ever asked, "How is everything?" I would have let them know. On the way out I saw other plates of sausage: grilled. So I guess mine was just overlooked. May seem small but there's preparing something and there's not preparing something. The whole experience was a bit unimpressive. My plate was not cleared until we paid. Just some really basic stuff here that should be easy to do. With so many options in the area, I don't think I would go back.
We've visited Cafe Clover several times and always been very happy we did. The location is very nice - a quiet corner southwest of Washington Square. The space is superb, indoors and outdoors, and the tables aren't tooclosetogether. Service is friendly. The wine list includes some unusual but delightful varietals (nerello mascalese, anyone?) at reasonable prices. Then there's the food, always excellent. Start with the extraordinary hushpuppies, every time. The salads are great and the various "pasta" dishes (featuring noodles made from spaghetti squash, quinoa, etc.) are terrific. If I lived in NYC, I'd eat here as often as possible.
