Had a great experience at Claudette. Went with my girlfriend for our anniversary. The service and food were both amazing, and they treated us even better after finding out it was our anniversary. The restaurant was a little crowded and loud but the atmosphere and decor were both nice. Would highly recommend.

Food, setting and wine were exactly what anyone would want from a french bistro. We had to wave the servers over a couple of times but they were all pleasant and helpful. Just know it’s expensive. We’d go back!

Claudette has become one of our favorite places in the City. The ambiance is amazing, the menu, be ready for your mind to be blown and your tastebuds go into a joyful journey of pleasure. And if you get the amazing chance to get Ted as your server you hit jackpot.

So lovely. I'm not a huge fan of brunch, though Claudette's was simple and elegant. I'd like to come back for dinner.

Wonderful dinner at Claudette. Everything is outstanding- charming intimate atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food. Very welcoming experience as the staff all works together and is super friendly and knowledgeable. Drinks were also great and we ordered and split all the desserts. Can’t wait to come back !

The food, service and ambiance were good, but the service was way to rushed, the plates arrived so quickly we did not have enough space on the table and it got cold ! We felt rushed to leave the soonest as possible.

Everything about today's experience was great! We were seated upon arrival, our server was friendly and patient, the drinks were great (I had the Claudette Spritz), and the food was outstanding!!! Every dish was so flavorful. Had the beet salad, Brussels sprouts, french toast, truffle hummus and wild mushroom omelette. I cant wait to go back, it was a great experience.

We haven’t been here for lunch in a while, and remembered that they have a very good prix-fixe lunch here. We love the food here because it’s boldly spiced - not spicy. And the quality of the ingredients is always very high. Can’t wait to go back.

We were a party of 3, came to celebrate a birthday. The food was delicious, the chicken entree was buttery and moist. Our server surprised us with madeleines for the birthday guest! Seating was very crowded, where I had to get up multiple times for an adjacent table to access their seat. Loud place, difficult to have a conversation.

I am a regular and usually quite happy with the food but this time literally everything was barely eatable. The salad and sautéed mushrooms were drowned in vinegar. My salmon was overcooked as well as my friend’s lamb burger. Service was adequate, although we both noticed that the waiter was too theatrical.
Hope this was just a singular bad day but will think twice before booking again...

Lovely room, good food and service. We went on a Thursday night, 8pm. Our problem with the place is that it was very noisy, as in VERY NOISY. We really could barely talk to each other. It was that loud.

We had a fantastic brunch at Claudette's this past Sunday. It was our first time there but have been to Rosemary's several times and to BoBO. This was fair better than the other two. The food was superb. Try the Beet salad. The seasoning and dressing are incredible. And best Eggs Benedict (amazing ham) and French Toast (Light, not heavy fried or butter cooked) we've ever had. Service was outstanding. Not rushed, not noisy, extremely polite and friendly and caring for the customer. Lucky if you get Sean, who was our server. Will return soon and have already recommended to others.

We popped in for brunch on Sunday and had a lovely time, a delicious meal and was very impressed with the service. We stayed at a hotel around the corner (Marlton) and walked by in the evening and loved the French charm with the outdoor dining... and was thrilled to finally visit. Certainly a neighborhood gem!

We went there for my girlfriends birthday. Mark our server was excellent and very friendly. The food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. We got a mixed drink at the bar because we arrived a bit early. Then Mark recommended us a great bottle of wine to go with our Ribeye steak. We will def. be going back for dinner or lunch very soon.

The food was seriously delicious, though more lunch-like than breakfast-like at 8 am. And it's a buffet, which is a great deal if you're hungry. Some jammy eggs showed up, there was yogurt, I should not complain because I was very happy and satisfied. Nice people too.

Great food, and excellent waiters. Reasonably priced, even though not cheap! But when the restaurant is crowded, as it was when we ate dinner there a couple of days ago, it can be quite noisy which makes conversation difficult.
