Wonderful dining experience! I had roasted duck with morel mushrooms and pasta-every bite was delicious. The roasted beets appetizer and the blueberry tart dessert were both awesome as well!

Our new favorite restaurant in San Antonio! The service was phenomenal and reminded us of our best date nights in Washington DC. Patrick greeted us with complimentary champagne for our anniversary, which was a nice touch. We chose the “feed us” option that included a 7 course seasonal meal selected by the chefs. We also asked for wine pairings. Both the food and wine did not disappoint! Thanks to the staff for a wonderful evening, we will be back!

Loved Clementine! The food is incredible, I’ll come hungrier next time to try the chefs tasting dubbed “Feed Me”. We loved every course, especially the ricotta cavatelli and chocolate Clementine crunch dessert. Excellent service, intimate and casual dining atmosphere. We’ll definitely be back!

Every time I come to Clementine, I experience another dish that delights my taste buds. This visit for lunch, I had the Buttered Carolina Shrimp on Toast (sourdough bread, celery & dill salad, lemon aioli). The ingredients are fresh and tasty and those shrimp were delicious. Coffee afterward is some of the best in the city. I love this place.

This was the best meal I've had in quite some time. First of all, everyone is really nice to you here and helpful. They are all vested in your experience. I am thinking you can't go wrong with anything you order here because everything we got was a hit. I wanted to build my meal from the wine. I did a bit of research ahead of time, but the server was able to make some excellent recommendations as well. It's small and intimate. Even on a Wednesday you likely will need a reservation, but if you end up waiting at the bar (or eating at the bar) you can watch them make your food.

A little difficulty getting seated, and at times the service was slow. However, the food was excellent! Nice combinations of taste and texture. The strawberry salad was a mixture of sweet, salt, and acid, with different textures from the strawberries, dandelion leaves, feta, and a few nuts for crunch. The crispy duck confit was savory and a delight combined with the ricotta cavatelli; a bit of acidity or something to contrast the richness would help. Overall a great dinner and I plan to return!

There is absolutely nothing bad about this place, from the one of a kind ingenious menu items, to the friendly atmosphere, attentive servers and extensive wine list.

Only tried dinner so far, looking forward to lunch!

Loved this restaurant. The balance to the dishes was great. Just enough fat, acid, spice. Unique menu also. Not just another of the same. Wine list was a little limited but both the white and red we ordered where good. Prices are not too high for the quality of the food and service.

Eat the beet salad! It's incredible. We also had the steak frites and seared tuna salad, both big winners. I would've asked for the hollandaise on the side but other than that loved everything.

We ordered the Feed Me option — customized just for us, except that every other table in the restaurant seemed to be having the same dishes. Everything came individually out as a mini course. Most reviews stated that 6 courses would be served. I wonder if the fact that dish after dish remained uneaten by our group of four was the reason we were so generously served 8 courses. The beet salad was outstanding. All other dishes ranged from just okay (the pasta) to inedible (rubbery, fishy tasting skate). Even dessert failed to live up to the hype: an okay coffee ice cream served alongside house-made, dry-as-toast donuts. A disappointing meal.

My wife and I went for our 30th anniversary. It was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We ordered the Feed Me menu item. We got six courses all chef's choice. We had so much fun trying items we might hot order on our own. Everything was wonderful! Watching the chef and the kitchen staff work was like having a floor show with dinner. The service was friendly and attentive.

All of the dishes were outstanding with one exception, the char which seemed undercooked and mushy. But the other dishes which were so unique and flavorful more than made up for it—the hush puppies, mushroom salad, pasta w penne sauce, and other seafood dishes all were excellent! The desserts were good too. (Donuts and strawberry shortcake). And the house red wine met expectations. will definitely return!

We had reservations for two on Friday night at 8:30 PM. We were promptly greeted upon arrival, but our table wasn't quite ready. I believe the group(s) before us were camping; not the restaurant's fault. They offered us complimentary glasses of wine while we waited. The noise level was a bit high, but that's to be expected for such a small dining area. The waitstaff was extremely professional.

We ordered a lot, and the items were spaced out just right. Every dish was nicely presented to us. The trout caviar, sweetbreads, beet salad, mushroom salad, bok choy, and pasta (forgot the name of it) dishes were all great. We especially loved the southern fried quail and dry-aged Wagyu steak. The trout on the menu was unavailable, so they substituted with arctic char. It was cooked perfectly, and they even made the skin extra crispy for us on request.

This was definitely some of the best food we've had in San Antonio.
