We went to the Clove Club for a lazy Saturday lunch. Atmosphere is excellent and food was wonderful. However two issues put us off. First, the service was just only very fair and definitely not up to the standard of a michelin star restaurant: we had to ask twice for almost everything!! No bread given, no serviette provided after the first one was soiled, white wine left outside on the table on a hot day, waitress did not know where the wine was from and told New Zealand instead of USA, etc. Importantly, even the food was excellent, there was a piece of "stone" in the lentils and my friend almost broke a tooth. We told the waitress and, that was it!! Hardly any apologies or anything else. Again, definitely not up to michelin star. I am not sure whether I will go back. Best strawberry tart I ever had for dessert though.
The good here just gets better and better. Recommended.
I like the informal nature and open plan of the restaurant. The service was excellent, the right amount of friendly without overbearing. Food came quickly and the surprising courses were presented with the right amount of drama and importance, whilst still being gorgeous and easy to eat. If you love your food you'll love this place!
Very much lived up to expectations, having been recommended the Clove Club by a couple of my foodie friends. Some really creative and imaginative dishes served in a really buzzy atomosphere. Would definitely recommend!
A place to be followed. Some extraordinary dishes (lamb or ray) others to be clearly improved (the one with the ham, for example). The dining room is too noisy for a long diner and the reception not friendly at all. Wine service to be improved also... But, in my opinion , it has the conditions to become one of the must in London
it was an unplanned night out for us and clove club definitely turned into the highlight of the evening right from the start. Two michelin star standard food that is actually not too fussy. Generally speaking fish dishes were stronger than meat dishes but everything was delicious! Will return many many times
Good food, really expensive and better food can be had for at least £50 a head less.
I rate this restaurant as one of londons best.
Great innovative food in a relaxed environment, friendly and proffesional staff, interesting wine list and good value for money. Fit for any occasion its a must if you haven't been And a must if you have.
We'd read so much about this place and were actually quite disappointed. The food on the whole was good but if they hadn't served bread we would all have left hungry - the portions were tiny and really underwhelming.
I cannot understand the negative reviews -- obviously not from people who love food. Clove Club uses exceptional ingredients, and specializes in imaginative and spot on presentation and combinations, and flawless service. We had, including "pre" and "post" offerings, 16 courses, and without exception, each was spectacular.
