Once seated we did not receive menus until I asked (another table came in 5 minutes after us and were seated with menus). When our order was finally taken one meal came out 20 minutes before the other meal (my son was finished eating before I even started). The waiter didn't seem surprised but I was surprised that they didn't hold the first meal. Also a sincere apology or offer of dessert or something would've went a long way instead of just ignoring the situation. The Butter Chicken was delicious, but everything else will prevent us from returning.

I have been to Clove & Cardamom three times within a month. It is especially convenient if you are attending a show at Merriweather Post Pavilion. You can park, eat and walk to Merriweather. I highly recommend making a reservation before a show.

First, they clearly did not have our Open Table reservation accounted for. That said, we were sat on time. The restaurant was full. It was Saturday night and they are near a concert venue so that’s to be expected, as their preparedness is to be expected too. About ten minutes later our waitress showed up and simply said “Are you ready to order?” We explained we would like to order drinks and an appetizer then order entrees in a couple minutes. She didn’t offer to help with the menu and her answers to our questions were not very informed. About 5-10 minutes later we’re got our samosas. They tasted good but I would bet they were premade frozen apps. After we finished those, after ordering our dinner and after many other follow ups, hingeing on frustration, our drinks showed up 30 minutes later. Shortly thereafter food was brought to our table, however not the food we ordered. One was immediately evident and was sent back. The other we noticed a minute later, as it was made with chicken not tofu. Good thing I’m not an actual vegetarian! Ten minutes later, the second dish showed up, undercooked. Before eating, I confirmed with our waitress that we would be receiving a discount. These core issues were punctuated by general bad service. The same issues with tables around us had become the topic of restaurant-wide conversation. At this point we skipped additional drinks and dessert as we were having such a miserable time. When the hostess asked us how things were going and we said everything was horrible, she just laughed and walked away. The waitress then brought the handheld check device, confirmed everything we ordered, and left the bill with us, with no discount. So we called her back and she offered us $10 off $95!! We asked to speak to the manager. She went and spoke to him clearly in sight but he did not come to our table. She came back and offered one free entree and $10 off- roughly 25%. We paid and left-for good!!

The pomegranate martini was delicious as was the chosen tiki masala and the cauliflower appetizer. Can’t wait to go back.

Wife order a naan pizza which was awesome. Dad ordered Butter Chicken and I ordered Chicken Tikka Masala, they looked the same and both were VERY, VERY good (I personally like the Butter Chicken a little better). Mom ordered Tandori Chicken and Daughter ordered a shrimp dish (I don't remember which one), but both were excellent. I plan on returning with friends. Also, there is outdoor seating, but it was overcast the day we dined. Of note, I only rated the server as good, I think the server was new. I can't express enough how much we all liked our meals (and in my family we always share bites back and forth so I got to taste them all)

It’s a 5-10 minute walk away. Our reservation was for 5:45. The concert started at 7:30…we barely made it. The service was poor. We (2 of us) were promptly seated. Our food did not arrive until an hour later. For a ~50 seat restaurant this is not good. Our order was taken twice. Finally after an hour I called over a server and asked them if they could tell what we ordered (they all carry electronic devices, presumably connected to the kitchen). They could not. When I pointed out that we had been waiting an hour, our food arrived in less than 2 minutes. One of the entree’s we received was wrong. We did not send it back because of our time constraint. Two people dining next to us left after they waited longer than us for food that never arrived. The noise level is uncomfortable. The food was good, but because our wait was so long the ability to enjoy it was limited. They need to fix their service issues or they won’t be around for people to appreciate the food.
