I love this restaurant. The service is always incredible. The food is always delicious. And I think the ambience is so homey and gracious. This place is in my neighborhood so I consider myself to be very lucky to be able to go there often. Please support our restaurants during this very difficult time. They are taking every precaution. And if anyone knows how to sanitize properly it's a restaurant!

Very nice time, the food was good and the ambiance was perfect. A great mix of casual and formal. Don’t go there hungry though.

There is NOTHING Provençal about the menu that is mostly Moroccan and middle eastern, but the meals were yummy and the service was impeccable.

A little minus for the typos on the menu: if you want to pass as French, use the right spelling for Hors d’œuvre!

Charming French Moroccan bistro. The food is really good. Casual vibe. Attentive service. I cannot give it 5 stars because the bathroom was a mess. Not cleaned adequately.

The vegetables were great!!!!
The salmon was not that great. The garbanzos were cold and there was very little sauce.
The staff is great. Very helpful and nice,
I think I should have left a bigger tip for the coat check. I only left a dollar

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.

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...
