It's always a great meal here. Tonight just stopped by solo for a drink and a bite at the bar. Was super busy on a Monday night... great to see. I had the Wedge Salad with Grilled Shrimp... excellent. I love their blue cheese dressing......and the salad was super fresh. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMore

Then we had Salad w/ Goat Cheese, Tomato/Mozzerela, Wedge (my favorite), Scallops (always awesome), Scallops & Shrimp, White Pizza w Pepperoni. Bottle of Pinot Grigio on this summer night, excellent service......another fantastic meal here! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMore

First time here. Everything from the host to the servers to the food was well done. Clinton is not exactly a metropolis but this restaurant would be well revered in the swankiest of neighborhoods. Upscale but without pretense. Prices are high for the area but...are very well worth it. Chowder salads main dishes and desserts including the bread basket are all love at first bite. Place was busy on a Saturday night as it should be. Make a reservation as we watched many walk away disappointed as the wait was long for a table without one. We will be back soon.More

My recent dinner was so good, we had to get back as soon as we could. I've had my eye on the White Pizza for a long time and decided it would be a good idea to share one as a starter for our party...of 4.... it was! So good and cheesy with a hint of garlic. The Goat Cheese Salad, Pan Seared Scallops, Chicken Parm, Lasagna... all great. Nice Wines by the glass and well made cocktails... fine service from Stephanie L... nice atmosphere... was a very enjoyable Saturday evening. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMore

If you live anywhere near this amazing spot, you're lucky. If you don't, make the trip... it's worth the effort. Everything I've ever had here, over many visits, has been fabulous. The dishes are mostly pretty straight forward, often with a nice twist, but they...are perfectly executed. Hot dishes are served piping hot... so rare to find, and so much appreciated. The warm homemade bread is served with an oil and cheese mix they prepare at the table... so good. Tonight, the Lentil Soup (awesome), the always fantastic Parmesan Fries, and the Chicken Parmesan that is one of the best you'll ever have... a large, thick, perfectly cooked chicken breast served over fresh pasta with a hauntingly great red sauce that is reduced almost to a paste... amazing, rich flavor! Service from Stephanie G was great... friendly, efficient and professional. Good selection of wines at fair prices. I have much respect for the chef/owner... he pays attention to every detail. Independently owned restaurants like this need to be supported by the community to help them through the tough Covid times. This is a very easy task as Clintons is such a fantastic place. If you've been here you know... if you haven't, go! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMore

I had the Greek salad and it was way above par. My first bite I literally said OMG. It was delicious. Then we had some of the bread that was straight from the oven. It was amazing. The service was okay. I felt the staff...was staring at us the entire time but regardless of that I’ll definitely be back.More

This place is such a gem for Clinton, every visit feels like you’re at home. Staff is superior , the chef and owner is proud (rightly so) and very personable. Homemade food is amazing! The pasta is not boxed, every bite is fresh. I could...eat dinner here every night. The drinks are poured perfectly. From the minute you enter their door to the minute you leave it is always great. Please do yourself a favor, break your diet for this visit and definitely try the amazing White Chocolate Bread Pudding and Creme Brûlée!!!!!More

Always love it here, food and drinks amazing. Signs all request masks and social distances 👍🏻👍🏻. The gentleman that seats you wear a plastic shield, and poorly. Why does the restaurant allow this?? So disappointed!

We made reservations at this establishment for last night....arrived on time, seated fairly promptly, waiter was too busy, not friendly at all! The food, well, it is a bar and grill, way too pricey for the quality and quantity of food, I think they think...they are an upscale place...VERY NOISY, crowded. Fish wrapped in potato chips was very good, although the size has been cut in half from a year ago, Chicken Parm was nothing more than cold linquini with a frozen chicken patty on top...chicken was tough as nails, and we were only supplied with a butter knife to cut it (server issue??) - lasagna was dry. Overall, not someplace we will try again, it was our first time, although one of our party has been several times, and has always enjoyed it, however, not thrilled last night. We paid with a credit card and left cash for the waiter, who came back after he realized that we had not put the tip on the card and grabbed the cash....yes, we were still sitting at the table, have you ever heard of such a thing???? Overall experience was probably a 1, gave them 2 out of sympathy!More

My husband and I went last night. The food was good but the quantity for the price is definitely not worth it. $26 for 1 piece of veal on not even a full place of pasta. This was not our first time but probably my...last. Too many really good choices for restaurants in this area!More

Nothing outrageous. I have been there is dress pants, shorts and a casual shirt. I have never seen a hat or a tee shirt so they might be banned but otherwise it can be casual.
