Not only was the food PHENOMENAL, but the SERVICE! As soon as I was done with putting sugar in my tea and using my spoon they took it and threw away my garbage. As soon as I was done with any dish, they would immediately take it which I like cause I HATE clutter on the dinner table.

It was way nicer than expected. The special was awesome other than the chicken was slightly hard to cut. Other than that the dessert was fabulous and service was phenomenal.

We were having our 40th anniversary and felt we were ignored. My chicken was dry and tough. When I told the waitress she asked if I would like to take it home. Which I did for our dog.we we're looking forward to trying your restaurant, we were very disappointed. I would not recommend it.

The whole experience was amazing. The food was the best i've had since living in Redding. I had the pan sear duck which was so tender and served with all my favorites. My husband had the prime rib which was cooked perfect. So glad i chose this place to celebrate my 60th birthday. Looking forward to going back soon.

I've been to this restaurant before, and it was great! My most recent visit has left me quite disappointed. Here is why. We received our reserved table promptly. Actually, we were the first to be seated in the restaurant. The water was served promptly=good. Our order was taken within a reasonable amount of time=good. Then we sat for what seemed like 20 - 25 minutes with nothing. I noticed other tables bring served with BREAD and salads as our table remained desolate with only our glass of water. Finally our waiter brought our appetizer (crab cakes). They were really good, and after we polished then off, he promptly cleared out plate, and asked if we'd like some more bread? I said I would like to have SOME bread. I could understand if he was really busy and maybe forgot, but I noticed him after serving us basically standing behind the double doors chatting with the other workers... For my entree I ordered the 12oz rib eye ($38). This restaurant prides itself in presentation and upon receiving this plate I immediately regretted my order. There was no way this piece of meat weighed 12oz... Even after the chef burnt all fatty edges of it. My first bite was reminiscent of a summer frat house BBQ party as the taste of coal flame was seered into this burnt fatty piece of meat. I was maybe able to maybe salvage 6oz of edible meat douced in their bone marrow dip, which in itself was quite good. The point being, this particular cut of meat should have never been served in this restaurant. I don't think Applebee's would've served it. They're was no way I'm sending it back, because I had the impression that the chef was not in a good mood, and who knows what would show up on my plate if I voiced my dissatisfaction with his judgement on this burnt sub par cut piece of meat? We did have the bananas Foster, which was really good. In summary, if a restaurant is charging over $100 to feed a couple for dinner there can be no resemblance of a $12 piece of meat showing up on the table

We had a great time with excellent service and great food! The brie stuffed buns, lemon scallops, and soups were all very tasty and highly recommended. Our servers were also very attentive and gracious with our time when deciding on what to order. Thank you for a great night and we look forward to returning!

We both had the Ribeye steak dinner along with a salad and nice bottle of wine. Everything was excellent, as it always is here. We are both on diets, so passed on the desert, although we have found them to be excellent in the past. Additionally, the service was top-notch.

First time diner. Went for my birthday. Loved the atmosphere... low lights, white tablecloths, high-backed booths, and 40’s music. Staff was very polite and attentive. Food was excellent! Brother had smoked ribeye and husband had Greek lamb chops. Both loved their dinners. I went with fish tacos and brie-stuffed buns... Yum! For my birthday, waiter surprised us and brought out vanilla ice cream drizzled with raspberry sauce served in a giant goblet with dry ice vapors billowing out the top. It was a very nice and unexpected gesture. Highly recommend. Would definitely go back again.

Clearie’s is one of our favorite restaurants in town, every time my husband and get s chance to do a date night we ALWAYS choose Clearie’s. The food is truly amazing our favorite dishes are the Chicken Marsala “I can just drink that sauce it’s so good” and the beef stroganoff. I was so relived to see those items are still on the menu. The service is truly excellent and make us feel at home. We recommend Clearie’s to anyone. Thank you for always making our date nights truly unforgettable.

The entry’s we had were good. One would expect the food to be over the top for the prices charged.
I give it low ratings overall for having a 30 minute wait. We had RESERVATIONS at 6PM and were not seated until 6:30! This does not happen by accident, for a reservation in the early evening.
It brings to memory a Seinfeld scene about reservations. “You know how to take a reservation, but you don’t know how to keep a reservation”.

Presentation was really nice but food was luke warm for 3/4 of our meals, it seems they forgot the sour cream for the stroganoff and the smoked ribeye had hardly any flavor. Disappointed as we were really excited to try this place. We agreed that this is more of a happy hour place for the drinks rather than expecting a nice meal for about $35 per plate.

Clearie’s is a very nice restaurant. You can come a little early like me and my fiancé did and enjoy a specialty cocktail in the bar/lounge area before going to the dining area. Make sure to make a reservation, it gets busy around dinner time. The service is great, the variety of choices is good. Try the Brie pull apart appetizer. Food is outstanding.

Nice place for special occasions. Enjoyed our dinner but a little spendy for my monthly budget. Nice ambiance and enough folks to make it merry but not noisy. Food was very good. We had crab cakes which were great. I had a steak which was also really good. The only complaint I have is the heavy use of garlic on most everything. I like garlic but more subtle use of it. The menu has lots of good selections. I would go again for another special occasion. Parking was tight on Friday night...and probably Saturday night too. Reservations are recommended for both of these nights.
