I was told by many people that Clifton Martini and Wine Bar, is a very good place with good drinks and good food. We started off with a drink, we then ordered our appetizers which took 40 minutes to get and we ordered our dinner right before our appetizers came. Once our food came out, everyone’s food was charred, over cooked and dry. On top of all of our food being over cooked, one girl in our group didn’t even receive her dinner. I would go back for for drinks, but nothing else. I was shocked by the service and food, maybe they were having an off day.
We sat on the patio which was great. Food was good, above-average. Drinks were very good. Service was decent, friendly, could have been slightly more attentive. Overall it was a very good experience, a bit shy of excellent, but we will definitely not hesitate to come back!
My wife and I had a lovely dinner at Clifton Martini. We sat outside and enjoyed a bottle of wine. The outside patio is very straightforward. The inside restaurant looked cozy. I had the beef brisket Wellington which was delicious. My wife had the salmon which she said was also very good.Both were good size portions at a reasonable price. The wine list had some interesting selections though slightly overpriced. Our server was new but did a satisfactory job. We will come back.
Food and patio were amazing! Service was quick, great selection of martinis and other drinks.
Great server very attentive. Clifton wine bare anticipated our need for extra seating for our occasion!
Great front patio area to enjoy very good food and fun martinis.
Wonderful spot! I was apprehensive that we would be out of our element (underdressed/whatever) but there was nothing to be concerned about. It is such a relaxed and friendly spot with a great assortment folks. Staff was lovely and attentive, food was great (one of us got the 8oz and one of us got the lobster roll) and the martinis were freaking fabulous. Will definitely be putting this in the rotation of places to go often. Love it!
This is a real neighbourhood gem.
The quality of the food and value is excellent. Their service staff is very attentive and friendly. Our go to in Edgewater.
Great bar staff & drinks menu as well.
Love this place. Great service, drinks and food.
Meh. Parking was too serious to ever consider going back. The atmosphere was tired, although it could be much more. And lastly the environment is very much a cigar bar, but you can’t smoke a single thing in there.
Great place with great food. It was a little loud in the room but overall it was awesome!
Great ambience. Awesome martinis, appetizers and service.
Food was just OK. Nothing that special about the taste or presentation. The drink and wine menu is extensive which was good. The atmosphere of the space was nice and cozy.
Great place for a date or with friends. Extensive beer, wine, & cocktail options. Split the house salad along with lobster roll & short rib sandwiches. Black Forest Manhattan will blow you away. Looking forward to returning ... just minutes from Gordon Square.
First time in. Loved the ambiance and drinks. Server was nice but didn’t come to table as often as he could. Food was delicious but warm not hot. Overall tasted delicious.
Food was very flavorful and reasonably priced for the portions, which we felt were the perfect sizes. The wine and beer lists were outdated, and the server had to tell us multiple times that something we ordered was no longer available. The restaurant was very loud.
Enjoyed a New Year's Eve 4 course meal that was well presented and prepared. Service was good despite the event and holiday as she also filled role of hostess. Nice atmosphere and enjoyable view. Vegan menu looks inviting and beautiful wood bar would be a great place to enjoy happy hour.
Had a great time because he aviance is so wonderful the music is good and the food is great.... great portions as well!!! every time I've been there it's been fabulous and we spent three hours which I think says a lot for somewhere because we were so comfortable and the service was fabulous thank you! Happy New Year!
We were very pleased
First visit here and it is absolutely charming! The gorgeous dark wood and tasteful lighting makes for a warm and elegant atmosphere. Service was superb!
My wife and I had our first date here 5 years ago and keep returning multiple times a year, including the date of, and will continue to come for many more years. Great food, great service, and great atmosphere!
Not a kid friendly place. No kids meal and the staff seemed put out when asked for a high chair. Also, was very offended by the dirty looks thrown our way by the bartender and server when my 6 year old son was walking around and not being the quietest despite the large party in the other room screaming.
We have visited in the last few months and are pleased with the food and service. We also enjoy how quiet it was our last time, even though it was a full house.
Neighbourhood staple. Consistently good food and service. Fun vivacious bar.
Overall very nice. Great martinis. Food was good. Service was very slow. Took about 40 minutes for our appetizers.
First of all, the place is really nice and laid backed. Lonnie was our server and he was excellent! Then the food came and every meal was perfect. In our group there was a flat bread pizza, filet, salmon and a couple pork chops dinners. All were excellent.
This is a great place to spend a cold winter evening. They even have a fireplace. Wonderful.
We had a large group including several kids. The section of the restaurant that was reserved for us was great. Martini and wine choices were more than adequate to satisfy a wide range of tastes. Service was very good too.
Have been theremany times & excellent as usual. Service better than usual. Loved sitting by the fireplace. Great seasonal beer list. Vegan options always good.
Our server was amazing at first, but then proceeded not to come back for 40 minutes and we still had to order dinner. We had to track down another server just to put our order in. Then no apologize, didn’t even come right over after that. But then apologizes once it’s time to leave a tip
My fiance and I had a wonderful time at Clifton Martini & Wine Bar. We were welcome to take our time, enjoying a cocktail and appetizer before ordering our entrees. The drinks and food were excellent and worth the value. We will definitely be returning!
First visit to this restaurant, Great ambiance, service was above average, however a bit rushed, server informed us our entrees we’re finished as she delivered the apps to the table. I told the server “the kitchen should probably remake them..because if they die in the pass, I’m sending them back.”
Apps: Crab toast and a Margherita Flatbread Pizza, were great, Kitchen must have redone the entrees as they came out (when we had finished our apps) fresh and not appearing to have sat under the heat lamp. Entrees: Seafood Bowl & Lobster Mac & Cheese, were fantastic and portions were respectable.
The drinks were strong and tasty. The ribeye was cooked perfect.
Food was good but not exceptional. Server did an awesome job. If you are looking for a new place, it’s worth a try. Patio is dog friendly!
Great drinks and apps our server Ryanne was the best!! Will definitely be back!!
My husband and I received a gift card from a friend as a wedding gift and we finally got around to using it. We had visited the Wine bar in the past but had never eaten dinner. As vegans it can be challenging to find a restaurant to suite our tastes but we were pleasantly surprised at the many options available to us. I ordered the artichoke panini and my husband got the tofu stir-fry which both were excellent! We split an order of the Frites which were also delicious. The portions were generous enough we both took home leftovers and enjoyed them the next day for lunch. We enjoyed our dinner and will recommend to friends!
Our meal at Clifton Wine and Martini bar was great. We went specifically for the vegan options and were not disappointed. It happened to be our servers first night working in the restaurant and she did a great job. We will definitely be back!
Love that we can bring our pup when sitting outside; our server was awesome to bring a container of water for him. Fish taco special was yummy!
My boyfriends and I enjoy finding new eats.. after reading other reviews I wanted to give this place a try.. I ordered a chocolate martini which was too strong for me (that's a good thing) calamari for appetizer.. excellent.. the seafood bowl.. also very good.. my boyfriend had the sirloin medium rare.. also good.. overall our experience was great
Every time I go there the food and the service is amazing
Good drinks and food
