Lunch with out of town guests. Everyone loved their food and the service was sparkling. Table was ready on arrival and the interior is charming.

They care about their customers and take time to explain menu for dietary restrictions. Plus they brought a free glass of champagne for special occasion - great service!

Tasty, but very loud restaurant. A bit on the expensive side but not overwhelmingly so. The lamb burger with pickled vegetables was terrific.

Thank you for the review! We do have a lively feel to the restaurant most times. Maybe you could consider trying out our $44 - 3 course Prix Fixe Dinner served from 5pm-6:30pm it is usually a bit quieter then.

The food was absolutely delicious. Seating area was a little cramped but it wasn’t enough to be an issue. Friendly service and efficient staff. Would come here again.

The french toast was amazingly light and the eggs benedict was wonderful. We went on Sunday morning before the brunch crowd. It was quaint and relaxing. The service was very attentive and polite. I will definitely return.

Went during restaurant week. Our server was very jovial and attentive and the manager also came by often. Interesting food with a moroccan touch. My cod was cooked perfectly and had a delicious side of isreli couscous with carrots and brussel sprouts. My husband had cassoulet with spicey merguez and chickpeas.

I love Claudette. I was there Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve and it was always a good cozy time with friendly welcoming staff and excellent comfort food. Claudette is the one Restaurant that I go to on a more regular basis than any other.

We came to Claudette for Restaurant Week and had lunch. The food was excellent, fresh and creatively spiced. The space is quite attractive and not overly noisy. Our servers were pleasant if not super efficient. We ordered a moderately priced bottle of wine and desserts, very good too. I will return to this restaurant. It is small, so reserve.

Came for restaurant week. The appetizer was okay. I thought it was going to be warm roasted brussel sprouts, but it was a cold shredded salad. The entree was a crusted cod over a few vegetables, amazing flavor. The dessert was also underwhelming: thought it was going to be a warm chocolate ganache cake, it was served cold out of the refrigerator as well. All the portions were pretty small in my opinion, so I didn't leave very satisfied. Food was good, overall ambiance was great, would come back to try other menu items.

Restaurant Week and the menu was wonderful. With three of us dining we ordered one of each of the three offerings for the first and main course options off the Restaurant Week menu. Honestly all of the food was delicious. A lot of vegetarian options available...

A lovely neighborhood restaurant, which has delicious, flavorful, well-spiced (but not spicy) food. And for Restaurant Week lunch, it was just about perfect.

On a recent visit, one of us had the restaurant week menu and one of us went a la carte. With the exception of the truffle hummus, the food was quite good, although the hot food was plated on a very cold sauce which was a bit jarring. The truffle hummus was small, had very little truffle and can with a single pita ... given that it was well overpriced. Unlike on previous visits i felt very rushed. The apps arrived very quickly and the mains as we were taking our last bites of the apps. It took a couple of requests to get our drinks right. That said, I would go back again for their interesting menu.

Claudette is a nice restaurant in a great location. but overall, the food is overpriced for the quality. A good wine list but nothing in particular stands out for the food. Wouldn’t be my first choice but would come again.

I love everything about Claudette.
My adult daughter and I love hanging out, having a cocktail, devouring a perfectly prepared country French high bistro meal, the 21st century-country French-Moroccan decor, and being just steps from ny home and her boyfriend's apt.
The food and cocktails are always fresh, fun and divine.
