Casual surroundings with upscale food. Chef oversees every plate that goes out. Do the “feed me” option and have the chef create your dinner.

We did the $35 Lunch tasting menu. Lots of food which was great, but only really enjoyed the beet salad and seared tuna. Server was amazing. Ambiance was very nice. Passion fruit creme brûlée would have been better plain. Pear crumble was just ok. Didn’t care for hush puppies, or duck salad. Many of my friends come for dinner and although it is expensive they enjoy it.

I truly love Clementine. Its a such a lovely place to have one of the best meals of your life. You can choose to have the chef pick out your meal for a flat fee or buy separate plates. I have tried both and have been blown away. A must to try after the meal is dessert. You can't make a wrong choice, from chocolate mousse to apple pie, they are so tasty. Downside is that you have to get your reservation in early because its fills up quickly

Three of us ate four appetizers, two dinners, three desserts, with multiple glasses of wine (at least 2 person but in some cases 3 per person). Every dish was amazing and we had a great time. Fantastic, well-trained waiter - was able to advise us on choices. LOTS of gluten-free options. Bill with tip was $240 but not bad with us attempting to try everything in one sitting!

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!

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!
