Wow. Just wow. Possibly the best meal we’ve ever eaten in Texas.
Starters: of the Hush puppies, Carolina Shrimp, and Veal Sweetbreads, all were interesting and tasty but the sweetbreads are a must!
Second course: Ricotta Cavatelli, Bok Choy, and Trumpet Mushrooms. Delisciousness in each dish and all so wonderfully different. The cavatelli and the mushrooms - with tender chicken - were wonderful.
Third course: Chicken, Veal, and Steelhead! Perfectly seasoned and crispy skin chicken. The most amazing crispy skin and sauced steelhead. And the veal - with casarecce pasta - tender, interesting, and perfect.
Dessert: Donuts and Passion Fruit Creme Brule. Both wonderful but the cardamom donuts with the the most amazing coffee ice cream and candied kumquats is divine.
Service was friendly, efficient, and unfussy.
We will go again. And again!

The food was good (menu very limited), but the service was lacking and slow. I expected a more New Orleans style feel to the restaurant and menu but that was not found.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday on Clementine’s first anniversary. We chose the Feed Me route where the chef builds a five course dinner. Chef John is the best. Great service from Jack. And of course, John selected better than we could have. Great dinner. Grat

This is a chef-owned restaurant. I was greeted at the door by a very pleasant restaurant manager, who offered me a wine list to look through while waiting for my party to arrive. There is almost no room to wait, so plan accordingly!

A small, bright place with more of a "daytime" feel - not like a dinner restaurant. Noise level was high and it made it harder to have a conversation, even at at four top. Personnel was friendly and efficient, the menu, while limited, was trendy and interesting. The star of the evening was the thinly sliced beet salad, which was divine! The large plate was more than enough for three - big enough for an appetizer for 4. Hush puppies crisp and yummy. My guests enjoyed the skate and the lamb. My lamb caritas was a bit too spicy for me, but my fault for not asking. Beer menu very limited and they were out of the lighter offering, but obviously focused on "curated" wine. I would definitely go back!

We had our annual New Year’s Eve Eve date night and clementine was the perfect choice! We opted for the Feed Me and left satisfied (not too full) and so happy with all of our dishes. Can’t wait to visit again...

This restaurant is a true gem of San Antonio eating establishments. The experience starts with the staff, they are attentive and explain the dishes that are being delivered to your table, during my visit we chose the “Feed Me” option where the chef picks out the meal choices; during my visit Chef Russ came to the table and gave an explanation of the first course which again made my visit a true experience. The food is simply amazing a must have is the beet salad the mix of flavors is just superb. The ambiance is a type of neighborhood feel it’s not a large eating area but you feel comfortable and not crowded the vibe is lively for sure expect to have some noise but not where you would feel uncomfortable. This is a place for a foodie for sure if your looking for an “Experience” try this restaurant you will enjoy it.

I waited a year to come here. The food, service and ambiance exceeded my expectations. The kitchen is right there. It has an intimate but casual, down-to-earth feel. You really know they love the food they make and the experience they provide. The beet salad was beautiful. I'm stunned.

One of the best restaurants in San Antonio. From the service to the food to the ambiance. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all the foodies out there, you will not be disappointed. The beet appetizer is probably the best ever . The skate was magnificent and the rib-eye was cooked to perfection, juicy and full of flavor. Gilbert, our server, was exceptional and made the evening what it was.

The feed me menu was amazing. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was ok and the restaurant was very cold that night, even colder than the outside temperature. The building has large glass windows and we went in November so the temperature drops quickly when the sun goes down. Apparently they couldn't adjust the AC fast enough to compensate. Probably just a seasonal issue and we will definitely try it again.

I made a reservation at 9:00 pm then I have to wait for over 12 minutes to be seat it. Then I chose the feed me such is Chef Menu Selection for $54 per person. The offered few main courses pretty much mushrooms with green some type of low carbs wasn’t pleasant, the meat 🥩 NY strip it was cold and not complete flavor. The dessert part very disappointed small portion compare to my raspberry donuts from the first time I visited Clementine. In conclusion the server never offered an apology when I addressed my dislike for my second attempt on the feed me Chef Selection. The restaurant manager neither offer a discount for the time we were waiting standing up when I made a reservation with a day of anticipation. Unfortunately is close to my house but I will not support them again.
