Absolutely love this restaurant. We come every single time we are in town, about once a month! Staff is always great, food cooked perfectly. They have some passionate chefs in the kitchen, always great specials. Steak cooked perfectly always. This restaurant is amazing, consistently great! Such a great thing to have in Redding. Also their cocktail menu is so fun and absolutely delish. Lots of unique items.

Valentines Day
I think the chef was overwhelmed because the Prime Rib was burnt, it was probably left over because it was a special. We normally get a pretty nice meal. We won’t be back for Valentine’s Day. Our server Misty was excellent however and the other help was great just not sure what was going on in the kitchen. 3 of us had problems with their meal.

All of the staff are friendly and polite but John is the best! We love having him as our waiter. He remembers us and our preferences, is always available with perfect timing on check ins and great feedback and suggestions on menu choices. This last visit the chef said hello and checked on his the food was. The food is consistently prepared perfectly. Great experience!

Always a great place to go when you want the dining experience to be upscale. Great food with exemplary service, all combined in an elegant environment where the noise level is low enough that you can comfortably hear one another!

The atmosphere was nice except for a couple that obviously had too much too drink and were very loud and ruined the ambience. It was my wife's birthday and I wanted it to be special but this couple were talking and laughing very loudly. At one point the man had food dripping out of the side of his mouth.

I have been to Clearies a few times in the past but this time it was for my moms birthday. Wow did Clearies go above and beyond! The moment I said my name for the reservation they said “ahhh we are here for a birthday and I’m guess that would be you’re beautiful mother” from there on they just made it so special. The food and drinks were fantastic, they even had something for me as a Vegan which I appreciate beyond belief! At the end of the evening they came out with a dry-ice smoking ice cream with a candle in it for her. She has been taking care of my dad due to a knee surgery and this was her first time out in a long time, I can’t thank you enough Clearies ❤️ You made that dinner so special.

This is my second time at Clearie's. Once for dinner and once for lunch. Both times was a very nice experience. The food is delicious and diversified. The wait staff are very attentive and pleasant. Pretty happy overall.

Their regular soup with a chili base was excellent and the braised beef with pasta was melt in your mouth delicious. The only minor complaint is that the bar staff was quite unorganized as the bar filled with patrons.

TLDR: Overall a good dining experience. Good dinner, better appetizers, the best drinks.

The Bacon Cheddar Dip appetizer was very delicious. Gluten free/dairy free Champagne Salad with grilled chicken was good, not great. The gluten free Chicken Marsala was good, not great; however, the mashed potatoes were surprisingly delicous. The Smokin' Blackberry Lavendar Lemon Martini was Amazing and the Fig & Storm was very good. Overall, I would definitely return to Clearie's!

Clearie’s doesn’t disappoint! Our family celebrated Christmas early with dinner at Clearie’s- and WOW!!!
Our son loved the meatloaf (he’s ordered it twice now) my husband thoroughly enjoyed his steak/ mashed potatoes and I love their Brussel sprout appetizer! The roasted half cloves of garlic comes with each entree (or ours have so far). So good!
Highly recommend for lunch or dinner. Good for business or pleasure.

Our Rib-Eye meals were perfect. We have been here many times, so I was very disappointed to find my Tanqueray and Tonic to be mostly a glass of ice with tonic and a bit of gin. We waited quite a while for our drinks so perhaps it was a result of the ice melting. I almost sent it back, but I don’t like to do that, so I didn’t order a second one like I usually do.

Let me just say, I ordered a Roast Beef dip. The meat was overcooked. One of the other people in our group ordered the Brie pull apart rolls. It was actually very obviously burnt. And to our astonishment served. When I brought it to the servers attention, His comment to me was, I will let the chef know. Really!!!
When he brought me the bill, I had to ask him to take off the burnt bread cost. This was a very disappointing experience.

We are from out of town but have business in Redding, we come here almost every time we visit! We love it, from service to food they are on top of everything. Their cocktail menu is great and extensive, the only thing I’d change is I wish that they have more of a beer selection, also a sparkling seltzer like a Truly would be great! Anyways overall on of the best places in Redding their ribeye is always delicious.

Love Clearies. Had the Doc's Dipper it was delicious. The hubby always order the Hot Pastrami with Garlic Fries I of course order a side salad but steal some Garlic Fries. The service was great and it was crazy crowded lots of Christmas lunches. Our server was new but she did a great job.

Al though it was much nicer than Doc,s when it was a restaurant before it became a night club it brought back some memories of the distant LOL past. It is now our favorite place to eat for those special occasions. The food was to die for and the service was great. Very relaxing and never felt they were trying to push us out for the next group. Very well done. Thank you it was the best we could hope for and more!

It was our 40th Anniversary & we decided to have dinner at Clearie's. It did not disappoint. Our waiter John was funny & attentive. Food, cocktails, & desert was amazing. Can't believe I waited so long to dine there.

This place tries hard, but is remarkably inconsistent. The first time I ate there, I had the calamari and shrimp Louis. It was fantastic. Perfectly fried calamari, tender shrimp, fresh green salad underneath, and an excellent recommendation for the cocktail sauce from our server, Wynonna. Service was so good we tipped her 30%. Second time, ordered same dish. Calamari was soggy, greens wilted, portion was 20% smaller. Service was good, but took the kitchen a long time to put out the food. Third time, portion was original size, toppings were good, service was excellent, but greens were wilted, soup wasn’t hot. Disappointing food quality, especially since the service is so outstanding.

Our truck was vandalized while parked outside. Even though this was not foreseen by the restaurant, I feel they could've comped our meal in the very least

We feel genuine sympathy for your loss. Despite our best efforts, we cannot promise the abject safety of any vehicle in our parking lot. Unfortunately in your case, one of the many criminals in Redding who wanders lots trying for unlocked doors happened upon yours and stole items within your car. Though we do have video of the suspect opening your door and stealing items, we did not witness any vandalism. We ask our patrons to please deter these criminals by locking their car doors.

The service and the food were amazing. The Calamari and Shrimp Louie was huge and delicious, the Calamari was so tender the louie dressing was so god. My daughter had the Meatloaf she said it was one of the best ( she had to be careful as her Dad does make good meatloaf and he was with us). The hubby always gets the Pastrami sandwich he never wavers also with Garlic Fries which I steal as they are the best fries in Redding. Our server Wynona was so great.
