I don't know what expectations the people commenting on this restaurant have but this was my 3rd time at the Clinton House and a fabulous dinner. Our server Carole was awesome. Most of the servers here look like they've been here for 30 years but that's part of the charm. Carole had an opinion about every item we ordered and even comped us a dessert when she heard it was one of our first times out without the baby. dinners are pricey but my filet mignon was perfect and my husband's Tbone too. I do agree with previous commenters that the wine glasses are silly and smaller BUT they practically filled it to the top. I had the house cabarnet which was not that great and I couldn't get past 3 sips. They do have a list of new specialty drinks and I had the summertini which was awesome. desserts are great - we had the peach cobbler and it's huge. definitely meant for 2 to share. bread was the only let down. it clearly wasn't freshly baked and there were about 3 tiny slices in the basket. the diner down the road (clinton station) has better bread! that would be my only complaint. buy or bake bread that fits in with the entree prices.
Had reservations for 10 (9attended) for 3pm on Father's Day. The room was very quaint and European with respect to tudor, stained glass and stone fireplace. Mom is British and our family has been to England many times and with respect to the atmosphere, this was like a little trip abroad (more German looking in our room-our son loved the sauerbraten). My three brothers, husband and son all were looking forward to the Beef Wellington. Banter went back and forth for days on what if only one is left? It was quite hysterical really. In the end, there was no Beef Wellington on that particular day, but it is on the menu generally. There was a Father's Day special menu including Salad, Entree, coffee and dessert. All were wonderful at a reasonable price! One could dine off the regular menu except for the BW. Several of us did. Not one complaint from anyone in our group.
Went to the Clinton House for a last minute change for a Birthday Dinner closer to home than driving to Bucks County, PA. I could not be any happier with my experience. EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING was just perfect from our server to the drinks to ALL the food. The martinis were in nice size glasses and made exactly to our liking. The appetizers of Mussels Marinara, which I was not expecting much because this is not an Italian restaurant, but were probably the best I have ever tasted. My Prime Rib was huge and cooked temperature was wonderful!, as well as my dining party's Strip Steak. Desserts were to die for....needless to say....I will be coming back here as often as possible!
