Cute brunch spot with warm, fun vibe, and good sunlight. Food was really great. Would recommend the poached eggs and lavender waffles.

This restaurant is beautiful - the service was great and food came out fast, and the food was really delicious! I'm vegan and the server was very helpful in identifying exactly which items on the menu are vegan.

Disappointing. Service was really off. Started with our waiter informing us we couldn't put in an appetizer order while enjoying drinks because that would "throw off" the kitchen and we needed to order everything all at once. Then we were served the wrong entrees twice. The coconut curry entree was not good and 3 of us had ordered it - very little substance and totally not worth the price.
This was disappointing because I've had great lunches here twice.

The quality of the food is important. Cafe Clover has a focus on where they source the food. We vote with our money. Supporting restaurants, and farmers that have natural sustainable practices is what I believe in too.

My favorite brunch in the city!!!!!
Their Lavender waffle is amazing- it’s just an added plus that it’s Gluten Free! They are always sooo welcoming and friendly.

I went to Cafe Clover with friends on President's Day. The restaurant is super cute and it was nice and quiet. We split 2 pizzettes (mushroom/ricotta and kale/prosciutto) as well as a bowl. The food looked lovely but was just alright. We asked to add chicken to our bowl and it was left off. I'd love to go back and try their brunch menu which looks delicious but don't feel inclined to return unless its convenient!

Great atmosphere, great service and good flavor. This is not the place to come super hungry as the portions are on the small side, but if you are looking for a light meal you won't feel bad about and maybe a cocktail this is the place to go. To me the price is a little high for what you get but I'm also a repeat customer. So I guess you can say the price isn't so outrageous I don't keep coming back!

First time trying this establishment. Dined on a Saturday evening - 7:30 so restaurant was full.
Appetizers and desert delicious and service top notch.
Entree's were "okay" - nothing out of the ordinary.
Never felt rushed which is always a welcome change on a Saturday evening

The restaurant was convenient, but the tables were packed, the room noisy and the service slow. One side dish we ordered did not come, but did (at no charge) late. The portions were smaller than the typically small size we prefer.

The prix fix valentines menu was great except for the main course. A nice combo of options that were brought out in almost jarring speed. The lobster entree however was overly salty and the lobster tail was a rubbery. Staff and ambiance are both great. I eat there often and I think it’s better on a usual night than a special occasion menu.

The experience was so disappointing, and the dishes were hit or miss. My friend’s fish entree was very dry, my buckwheat pasta was good but boring. The chocolate dessert was good, but we only had a few bites of the panna cotta we ordered bc it was not good, really lacking flavor.

Have been coming to Clover for years - have always loved the room and being able to eat healthy without having to commit to vegan. Noticed a new menu online so came for a late dinner to try some things and loved every dish. Calamari and radicchio salad to start were fresh and delicious. Gluten free pasta with watercress/pistachio pesto and roast chicken both perfect. Room was buzzing and fun.

This place is a hidden gem on the border of soho and the west village. I went for dinner after work, sat at the bar, and had an A+ experience. Wait staff was the perfect amount of friendly and attentive. Service was incredible. The food came quickly and they were able to accommodate my many dietary needs. Everything on the menu looked delicious. I had the beet ravioli and I can’t stop thinking about it! Menu changes seasonally so be sure to ask your server what’s in season. Enjoy!

By far the best healthy restaurant in New York. I eat here 2-3x a week and when I don't, I order in. So many great new dishes on the menu...three delicious, gluten free pastas that we shared. Beet Gnocchi was incredible. Service was attentive but non intrusive.

Absolutely fantastic experience. We ended up staying for hours- from apps to dessert, my two friends and I were inlvoe. Our waiter was phenomenal, the bartenders let us stay and finish our conversation even after the restaurant was technically closed for the night. The food was superior. Really outstanding nyc dinner experience.

Spotty quality. Feels like chef’s designed a menu and then left to start another project and the cooking is done by trainees. Not a consistent level of quality I’d expect at this high price point. Menu needs refreshed and some renewed attention to detail. Living on reputation at this point.
