After a little bit of an awkward start (the amuse buche was a tomato cream soup, which arrived after 3 of our party ordered a creamy crab bisque as an appetizer. Then after a long wait for said soup - we asked a manager to check on our apps), everything was fabulous and they were super attentive. They congratulated us on our anniversary (as noted when making OT reservation) and presented us with a cute "Happy Anniversary" decorated oyster shell and not one, but TWO complimentary desserts! After we already had 3 coming, for 4 people! Everything was delicious from soups to nuts in the peanut butter pie. Highly recommended.

Our new No. 1 eatery in Naples. Outstanding in every respect. We had two appetizers for happy hour and two different entrees for dinner. Everything was superb. Service was incredible. Happy Hour is also the best in Naples. You can sit ANYWHERE in the restaurant, not just the bar area like all other restaurants. The happy hour food items are generous portions, and most are $5. There are more drink selections than most other restaurants. But only order mixed drinks/cocktails. The house wines are cheap and awful. There is indoor and outdoor sitting, and outdoors is very pleasant in a courtyard setting. Value is also excellent for quality you get.

I had an early birthday celebration with friends tonight and was so touched by the way that we were feted. We were greeted from the heart, and treated to delicious celebratory beignets and champagne following a fabulous dinner. Thank you!!

Beautiful evening and we sat outside. Heaters were on an this worked for all of.
Quite a few diners outside but the noise level was fine and we could speak to each other with no problem. This is one of my pet peeves with many Naples restaurants

Seating is very close. Spacing between tables outside could be better. Service was marginal. One diner was given wrong salad. Server was mia at times.

One of our "go to" restaurants, which we chose to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. Always great food and service. We especially recommend the outdoor seating.

It’s one of our go-to restaurants. Always good food, service and atmosphere. Sometimes I wish they would have some alternative dining or changes on the menu or wine list.

The Claw Bar is one of my favorites in Naples. I usually enjoy for brunch. This visit was for dinner. Food and service were great. Stone crab, fried oysters, seafood bake and salmon dishes were all delicious! The chocolate peanut butter tart dessert was just ok (not enough peanut butter flavor). Will be back for sure!

Our brunch experience was great! The ricotta pancake was exceptional. There were 2 orders of the crab salad over fried green tomatoes at our table and neither of us would order the dish again. But that said we will definitely come again and I will recommend The Claw Bar to friends and frenemies.

Came for my birthday. We are regulars. Service has fallen off consistently in last three visits. Ordered a dry martini and it came with half vermouth. Told the bartender and he smiled but did nothing. Finally got the waiters attention 10 minutes later and was brought a dry martini. I mean how hard can it be? Problem was the second one was poured out of the shaker in my lap. No kidding. No apologies no compensation just smiles. I ordered 1 pound of the king crab steamed. First time I ordered it weeks ago it was magnificent with legs cut it sections. Last two times including this one I get claws with little meat and what I could scrape out was in pieces. We asked for our bill and were told to wait because they had something special. 10 minutes later I got a little piece of pound cake with a candle. Claw Bar is now Meh Bar. Good luck. We are snoozing it for 30 days maybe 30 months. Too many other good restaurants here in Naples.

My only concern was there an off a lot of people at the bar get us some of the outdoor tables that were in Terry close flip-flops and T-shirts and other extremely casual clothing. It’s too nice a place to have the atmosphere ruined play such sloppy dress. They really should hear the way tougher dress code

We had great cocktails at the bar and were seated outdoors overlooking the pool for dinner. From soup to nuts our meal was spectacular. The service was not the nest. Our server seemed alittle dialed out.

Perhaps one should never go to a popular restaurant before the start of "the season" in Naples, or perhaps one should simply avoid going on a Monday when the main kitchen staff may be on a day off.
In any event, our visit here was a major disappointment, particularly compared to the excellent meals we had here last "season". Service was excellent, but the food was not up to even a modest standard. We had to send one main dish back and the other was barely ok. Keep in mind that these are both meals we always order here in the past. So it will be interesting if other reviewers tell us that we were just unlucky, or if we should not bother returning.

The quality and consistency of the food, wine and service, and the beautiful interior, makes this a special place, even when it’s not a special occasion.
