We settled on Clinton House because the food is great, David our server has become a friend and takes very good care of us. He anticipates our needs. With all the people he serves he remembers our usual likes right down to desserts. It’s a luncheon we look forward to each month.

Her filet was thick and juicy cooked to perfection, my dish was full of huge chunks of crab, the au grayen sauce was not over powering and the top delightfully crunchy. All around great experience. Fantastic wait staff.

Our only complaint had to do with several of the other customers; at least try to make an effort to clean-up when bringing your family out for a special dinner. The restaurant itself though, never disappoints.

I hate to leave bad reviews, but our food was really bad, which is unfortunate because we had high hopes. Lobster soup and crab cakes were definitely store bought or at the very least had that type of taste/feel to them. The salmon was a joke. The butter sauce was terrible tasting and it was loaded onto the plate like soup. I only ate a few bites. The spinach was soaked in it and it ruined the whole dish. My husband was going to order the $98 lobster dish and we were really glad he didn’t after our experience. Service was super slow moving. Not because it was busy, but because he moved soooo slow. Bathrooms were out of paper towels. Again, it wasn’t busy at all. I gave 2 stars bc the actual building and historical aspect of the restaurant was neat. If this is your last resort for a place to eat then try it out, but I wouldn’t make it your first option.

My anticipation was not rewarded. It turned out the half duck was in two sections and deep fried a bit too long. While I get the concept of wanting to service crisping skin on the duck, they succeeded and then some. The duck flavor was gone. Also, for $45 dollars I should have been able to substitute the broccoli for a different vegetable. Overall, it turnout to be a pleasant experience for my wife and I.

Our waiter was great, efficient and friendly. We only go here once in a while since they do not accommodate vegetarian/vegan. For this visit, I made a meal from the sides, but that is not something I would do on a regular basis. They do not accommodate GF either - my sister has celiacs and so she can not eat here at all. Too bad, they are missing out on an ever growing customer base.

The service unfortunately was very slow. The staff was nice but for the price, service has to be much better. Cocktails were the only items that were relatively disappointing.

Extremely short handed at the kitchen while waitress tried their best to serve customers. Unsure why other people arrived after our table, got their dinner orders way ahead of us.... Not the first time to this restaurant, but first time of disappointment :-(

We meet once a month for lunch. We settled on Clinton House because the staff, food, and atmosphere make our visits memorable. Only wish is that the chef would get some gluten-free bread and rolls so I could enjoy some of those marvelous sandwiches. Wouldn’t mind paying extra for some of the good breads that don’t taste like cardboard.

He’s awesome. He’s funny and just connects with his guests. The only thing that I had an issue with was how hot it was due to the fireplace being on. I understand that it sets the ambiance but it was just very warm in the restaurant m. Eventually it was turned off but it was still very warm
