The Clinton House Ratings and Reviews
Hostess, Julie, welcomed us warmly, showing us to our pre-set table and assuring we were
comfortable. (Julie is such a pleasant and gracious person!)
Our food (and the menu, too) was very much to everyone’s liking. Water/other beverages
were kept re-freshened.
Lighting, ambiance, seating, and ambient sound were all perfectly suited to our liking.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the food, each other’s company and the relaxed time
We’ll definitely be back!
Special birthday meal for my husband. Food was fantastic as always. I had the filet mignon medallions, my grandmother had the crab cakes-tons of lump crab meat in there without fillers-which were fantastic, and my husband had beef goulash. Another outstanding meal.
As always just have the best experience at The Clinton House. From being greeted by everyone near door when you enter, to politeness of hostess while seating, to bus boy who brought water and bread, and of course wonderful service. Food is wonderful and just cannot get enough of the Sauerbraten. For the holidays their special dessert is a chocolate yule log that is out of this world with such a moist cake portion and yummie chocolate mouse. We just love it here
Once again, we were thoroughly pleased with our dinner entrees. However, we didn't feel we received our "normally" expected service. While the server was pleasant, not attentive. When our orders were taken, the menus remained in front of our friend. It just wasn't what I've come to expect from the Clinton House. While I completely understand that everyone has off days, we had an early reservation (5pm) and it would have been more pleasant if the server had been different.
First time here and was quite happy with the lunch. I was responsible for finding a place for our work holiday luncheon that was within reasonable office driving distance. Came across the Clinton House in my search and was very glad it was the place I chose. Food, service and ambiance was spot on. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Was pleasantly decorated for the holiday as well to get us in the spirit. Would definitely recommend and will go back.
We went to the Clinton House for a pre-Christmas get together with family and friends. They have a warm and cozy atmosphere which is just what we were looking for. Everyone loved the restaurant and raved about their meals ranging from filet mignon to seafood. Our server was very attentive. We go to the Clinton House every few months and always enjoy it.
we enjoyed dining at the Clinton house about 8 years ago and decided to go again for a special night out. The food was mediocre. We ordered sauerbraten and duck from the daily specials. The sauerbraten was off and the potato pancakes were thick and doughy. The duck was dry as well as the rice and the only flavor was from the gravy. The salad and broccoli side were the best parts of the meal. Service was very good. If we ever return, friends have suggested only ordering steak.
No matter how many years go by between many visits to the Clinton House, it is always as excellent as the previous time. The ambiance is relaxed and welcoming; the service is very attentive and although it is on the more expensive side, what you get for it is substantial and well-prepared. I ordered the twin lobster tails and I was amazed at how large they were. They were well worth the price. The deserts are also worth saving room for. My friend had the chocolate decadence cake which she said was superb and I had the bread pudding,which in my opinion is the best I've ever had. The Clinton House is definitely a place that you want to come back to frequently.
Excellent experience. Accommodating to change in reservation time and still gave us a booth! Warm and welcoming. Excellent and responsive waitress. Great wine list offering my favorite single prosecco. It was cold and delicious. I always order the crab cakes; they are divine. They are all about the crab. Sides were to-die-for au gratin potatoes and perfectly steamed and seasoned broccoli. Bread baked in the onsite bakery is delicious and arrives warm. The bakery also makes the desserts for the restaurant. We stopped in after lunch to get some goodies to go. Everything looked so delicious it was hard to decide what to get. Love this place!
Had dinner at the Clinton House with friends and loved every minute of the experience. Three of our party had the filet mignon which was prepared to perfection; nobody was disappointed. I had the special Stuffed Branzino which was outstanding in flavor and the presentation was phenomenal. May I suggest being seated outside of the bar area if you want to have an intimate dinner.
Brought my mother, a local, for her birthday. This is her choice; last year as well. All meals come with a salad and the red Catalina dressing with blue cheese should not be missed. I had the petit filet au bleu sitting on sautéed mushrooms and onions with potatoes and it was absolutely fabulous! We'll be back again.
We visited here again for our 1st year of marriage and 11th year together anniversary. The food was fantastic and we were seated by the fire place. We had the clams Casio o and French onion soup. For our main dish we went with the beef Wellington and the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. We’ve been here several times before and as usual the food is always consistently great. The staff is always pleasant and made our anniversary special for us.
Our first time for dinner was wonderful, table for two by the fireplace!The ambience by the fireplace made the meal even more enjoyable. The service was excellent. I ordered the filet mignon that was cooked to perfection, my wife had the stuffed pork chop, she said was delicious .
We also had drinks,i must say my Bloody Mary was the best i have ever had! The
finishing touch was desert,delicious cheesecake!Highly recommend and we are looking forward to coming back soon.
