Not so great! I would say we go to cafe Clover every two months. This past time wasn’t especially good
. Service was mediocre and food was just okay.

Very grateful to the staff who were gracious to the baby who was with us — I know that makes life a little difficult, so much appreciated.

Lovely dinner with friends. Fresh tasty food and friendly service. Table was ready on arrival. Nice ambiance although the interior is looking a little worn around the edges.

Very nice restaurant in a great section of Manhattan. Love the abundance of vegetarian options. Comfortable and cozy, and overall enjoyable. Was a little underwhelmed by the drink selection, standard big name liquors and well known regions for wine but felt a little generic. You can get standard cocktails but felt uninspired and in contrast to the interesting food menu. Food was excellent and will definitely go back to try again.

The Tuna Tartar crisps are the yummiest treats I have had in months! I ate here 3 days ago and I am still thinking about that amazing appetizer! The cocktail menu is fun and inventive. The dinner menu is beautifully done. I hope to have the pleasure of more dinning experiences at this lovely establishment.

Cafe Clover is a bustling, energetic cafe. My daughter has been many times but this was my first experience. Our table wasn't the best (middle of dining area and cramped) but enjoyed the food and experience nonetheless.

The Restaurant Week menu was noticeably worse than the regular menu (our table ordered from both). Drinks were yummy, we just felt like the meal was meh based on what we spent.

Had a very quiet lunch by myself. Despite the room being virtually empty, the waiters were sparse. The appetizer was delivered at the same time as the main meal without explanation or apology. Despite that, the cauliflower tostada was delightful and the shawarma chicken was tasty, if a little tough. All in all though, didn't feel like a guest here, more like an intrusion. Such a warm room - such cold service.

This was my first time dining at cafe clover. I went with two friends prior to seeing a film at IFC, which is just two blocks away. We were all thoroughly delighted by both the food and service. In fact, this was, by far, the best service I have experienced in years. The staff is friendly, attentive and genuine. I have already made plans to go back.

Excellent food. You can taste the love and attention that goes into the sourcing and curation.I’ve had the Branzino the last two visits and it’s excellent. The cocktails also hit the spot. The only downside to dinner was guy next to me sharing the intimate details of his gym workout....

Food was appalling. Manager’s excuse was that the food was poor due to understaffing because of the nice weather outside. Was not compensated — just given a silly excuse. I will not being going back again.

The food was really terrible. I’ve been there before and it was totally different. It looked like they didn’t even try. The waffle I ordered was really soggy and and tasteless. Even the presentation of the dish was horrible. Just grey and soggy.
My friends’ s eggs with chips weren’t much better. It we under seasoned and blah. For the prices, it was definitely not worth it.
The decor was still pretty and the server was pretty good tho I felt slightly rushed. (Even tho there were many empty tables of two)

The ambiance was nice. The food however was subpar. We had to send 2 entrées back that were not cooked as requested. Someone else in our party asked for a side of cheese for her food by the time it arrived her food was cold.

Good innovative and seasonal food. The squash latkes were delicious. Nice space especially in summers when the side is open. The only thing that could improve is sound-proofing and service staff to be more forthcoming (served me a different bear than on the menu without first asking and then serving very good bread with cold butter).

I just moved to NYC after 3 years of long distance with my girlfriend. Given that it was out 7th anniversary, I wanted to make sure I took her to a nice restaurant to celebrate living in the same place once again. After much research, I decided to make a reservation at Cafe Clover.

From the moment we arrived, the staff seemed like they were trying to rush us out the door. The server asked us if we were ready to order 4-5 times within the first 10 minutes of being at the table. Even with my girlfriend and I trying to slow down their pace, we were in and out of the restaurant in under an hour after ordering drinks, an appetizer, our main plates, and a dessert.

The food itself was subpar and the two drinks we ordered were both very mediocre. Overall, it was devastating for me to spend so much time researching the perfect restaurant to celebrate a life milestone only to be so disappointed with the result. I will not be going back.
