Very busy night, but the waitress was very good us. Food was great!
I would have given 5 stars on value too but the prices seem to have gone up significantly since we first started going there. Still an excellent meal with superb service and food! Just a bit pricey for Clinton.
We each had the arugula salad and split 3 appetizers: butternut ravioli, truffle scallops on a cucumber salad and truffle fries. All were excellent, as was our server Ricky, who was attentive with a great sense of humor. We’ll be back!
Love this restaurant ! It is not a quiet place - but I would call it lively not loud ! Excellent food and attentive service !
Great food service and atmosphere. Highly recommend this place to all.
Outdoor dining, as well as socially indoor dining available. They even installed plexiglass between booths for safe dining. Service was excellent, as is the food- with an extensive menu! Offerings range from walnut encrusted goat cheese and pear salad, to grilled gourmet pizzas, or potato chip encrusted baked haddock, to my favorite : rack of lamb. Fabulous !
The food was outstanding and the service was great. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. We highly recommend this place.
Great service and the food is phenomenal!
Really great service and dining experience… A super friendly waitress who did a really good job!
Service was excellent, food was good. We had a reservation for the bar side but they were running 35 min behind - so they sat us in the front on the opposite side near the windows (no big deal). However we sat next to a party of 4, and a party of 8, my husband and I literally couldn’t talk because it was so loud. It was disappointing because we rarely get out with little ones, we were out celebrating his 37th birthday. It would have been nice to have a conversation over dinner without having to feel like your screaming across a table. With two busy schedules and kids we rarely get to have an uninterrupted conversation at home, so it was too bad it was the same times 10 because of the noise level.
Our waiter Gillas was attentive, engaging and fun! Clinton Bar tables were well spaced apart and thoroughly cleaned after each use. The food at Clinton Bar & Grille is always fantastic. Gillas was super busy but he was very attentive and brought our drinks over promptly. We started with the buffalo chicken dip and calamari appetizers which were great! Entrees included short rib lasagna, veal Marsala, lamb chops, and arugula salad with salmon. Another great evening at Clinton Bar & Grille!
We're frequent diners at the Clinton Grille. It was really busy - tables outside and a function upstairs. Food was excellent as usual. We had a good waitress but the food was very slow to come out. It took 2 hours altogether and we didn't have desert. Maybe kitchen overwhelmed on this particular night.
One minor grip. I ordered a bourbon manhattan OTR and was charged for Makers Mark ($10), a manhattan ($2) and rocks ($2). Please don't do this. I didn't mind the combined $14 charge but are you really charging me $2 for 3 ice cubes? What is a $2 manhattan exactly? All else was good with this exception. I'll go back for sure.
Check your food carefully if you have allergies, even if you tell the waiter.
Nice lunch with daughter for my birthday
This restaurant is first-rate. Highly recommended! Food was fresh, superbly prepared, and served inventively. (Sauteed mushrooms shaped into an artichoke-like form -- amazing.) We only get to Clinton rarely, and then to visit the Museum of Russian Icons (right around the corner) but will definitely return on our next visit to the museum.
The food is always good. Our service was subpar. Waited a long time for drinks, then we were finally asked if we wanted bread which we decided to enjoy that evening but we waited so very long for it that our meals were right behind it. Disappointing too was the fact that the waitress never apologized or mentioned it at all. I didn’t want to bring it up because it was a special occasion and I didn’t want to wreck the evening even more.
We have not dined inside a restaurant for now six months, since the pandemic was instituted, but we have gotten take out from here six times and today we decided that it was one of the last sunny days of summer, we would enjoy outside seating for lunch. As usual, the food here was exemplary as it has always been. I have mentioned previously that you can’t get a better premium steak than you can get here, not Capital Grille, not Ruth’s, not Morton’s. Service is generally amazing as well. Today didn’t show us any different, from the fresh onion bread with dipping oil to start, to the Beet and Goat Cheese appetizer, to Burgers done perfectly from the broiler and served so hot it was amazing. And the dessert, there isn’t a better bread pudding anywhere, made from Challah and served with fresh caramel and also a premium caramel ice cream.
This restaurant has also done a yeoman’s job to deal with social distancing as evidenced by their redesigned table layout, the flow of diners through the restaurant to plexiglass panels between booths. We hear there have been a few nuisance problems and reports of social distancing issues, which I feel bad about, because I know how hard they have worked to keep us safe. So, I would give food an A/Aplus here and I would give their response to pandemic response a near equal rating.
We need to dine and to support these restaurants either with dine in, take out or gift certificates. And remember, to increase your tip to help out the servers who probably have reduced incomes as well. We have added 5-10% to our tipping and feel very happy to do it to help everyone out.
Very good place , food , service ... ......................,would recommend ....
Our first time. Food was very good. Service was amazing.
Food was wonderful - Horseradish mashed potatoes was the perfect compliment to the delectable filet mignons, prepared perfectly, and tender enough to cut with a butter knive.
Sister-in-Law had Chicken Parmesan and the presentation was beautiful. She said it was delicious and finished it all!
Felt safe dining here. Booths have plexiglass barriers. Servers were masked and served with care.
excellent as always. great for lunch if you want to slurge a bit, quite and comfortable
wonderful! Can't wait to go back again soon. Great food, drinks and service.
Been a few times, flamboyant welcome by the host(who should wear a mask), few tables in the street, most are inside which are good. Full bar, good waitress service(wearing a mask) nice menu for lunch. Fair priced and we’ll come back, as we have done a few times now every few weeks.
We dined outside and it was very nice ! The food was delicious and the service was excellent!
Outstanding consistently delicious. They take great pride in all they do. Wait staff is wonderful. I love this place. It is my favorite
This is only the third time we have dined out since March 2020. We reserved a table via Open table. When we arrived we were given our choice of half booth or full booth. We choose the full booth. We were very comfortable and felt very safe since all booths are separated by plexiglass panels. All tables are spaced at least 6' apart. The wait staff was very attentive and honored our request not to be rushed. The food was excellent, as always. The waitress offered to have our shared salad split by the kitchen. Each "half" was a very generous portion. Our entrees were expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The Creme Brulé was outstanding.
Food was delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. Doing a great job under difficult circumstances due to COVID-19. Felt very comfortable eating outside with protocols they had in place.
This was our first experience dining out during the pandemic that was truly enjoyable. The food was excellent and the ambiance almost made us forget that it was 2020.
Loved the food, our waiter was amazing, and loved his accent!!!
The food is out of this world. I had the chicken Marsala this time, and the best I’ve ever had. My son, who is a chef agreed!
Very friendly and accommodating!
Great food always though the server was very nice it was a busy sat night and he was not as attentive as we would’ve liked. We enjoy it there so we’ll obv be back !!
Stephanie was wonderful. Great wine recommended by staff. Food was very good. Street noise is horrible but was otherwise delightful sitting outside. It would be nice if the outside barriers were dressed up a bit to convey a nice ambience.
One of my favorite places to go especially during this difficult time the service and safety of this establishment is on point! The food is always superb as the owner is the chef operating in running the kitchen most of the time! Definitely a great place to go to with friends or on a date! It is a true hidden gem!
First, the food is fabulous. Second, the choice of inside or outside seating was offered. We sat inside and we were met with prompt service. Appetizers and entree were delicious. The dessert was to die for.
Loved the service, wonderful food, I would go back again!
This is our favorite restaurant! They know almost everyone by name. Ricky is so fun and always makes sure he stops to say “hi” even if your not sitting at the bar.
Jackie is amazing!!! She has been our server on multiple visits and we just adore her!!
The food is always spectacular and we love the atmosphere. Clinton’s is definitely our favorite in the area!
Amazing, as always! Great food and excellent, attentive service.
