First of all, make sure you make a reservation AND it's BYOB. Then get ready for a fantastic meal! We've never had anything here that is less than terrific! The service is always spot on. Now, for our newest discovery....breakfast at this sweet place! It was delicious....and once again, service was wonderful.

We just stumbled upon this place while walking through the neighborhood - and I'm VERY glad we did. It has a charming and warm atmosphere - and the food is VERY good. Would be a great place for a romantic dinner out. We will definitely return! BTW - It is a BYO - so come prepared if you want a... More

Everything we ate here was absolutely delicious! Our server was super sweet and attentive. I think the calamari was the best I have ever had. My family also ordered the rib appetizer and said it was amazing. I had the Shrimp and Tasso as my main meal, super tasty! Other meals that my family got and loved were the short... More

You won't get a table at this fantastic little Cajun hide-away without a reservation...and rightfully so! From the moment you enter, you know you're in for a treat. Everywhere you look is a decorative, antique feast for the eyes and the food will leave you completely satiated! Each entree, appetizer, salad, side and dessert is carefully prepared with so many...

Fun atmosphere. Very good Kale Caesar Salad with Shrimp. Very good Short Rib. Also liked the Ribeye Steak. Did not care for the Salmon, as it did not smell fresh.

This was my second visit and it did not disappoint! The food was as good as I remembered. The jambalaya is delicious! Everything ordered at my table of six was enjoyed. The service was friendly and professional. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays and very festive. Can't wait to go back.

This is a small restaurant that pays great attention to detail. I would recommend going on a weekday during the "off-season" when every order is done to perfection. On the weekends you can only get a table with a reservation. When it is crowded the kitchen does not give each order the same level of attentions. The food is great... More

Went with a party of eight for 8 o'clock seating. We were at our table by 7:50. No rush at the second seating. Our waitress Mary was super. She knew we were a fun table and joined right in. She made some great recommendations from the specials and the menu. For soup i had the Gumbo and it was fantastic.... More

What a fun experience from the moment we entered Clementines. We were greeted by one of the owners who was certainly a character. We were seated immediately for our 8:30 reservation. The atmosphere was intimate and hysterical. So quirky. We ran to the bathroom just to check it out because the decor was impressive. It's BYOB and the food was... More
