211 Clover Lane Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

The server was mediocre. She did the basics but nothing beyond, including checking back with us. It seemed like she was just going thru the paces.
The kitchen was out of 2 of the entrees and the wine we ordered. Poor planning for a Saturday night when 1 of the items was chicken!
After desert was served and our bill we never saw the server again. When we left the restaurant there were no employees to be found, and we were not the last table.
I've experienced the same inattentive service at 211 previously. They just don't seem to be interested in their customers.

211 Clover Lane really needs to expand its wine by the glass options. There was one Pinot Noir option, one Merlot option, and no cabernet sauvignon choices. If I'm going out for fine dining, I am likely going to prefer a different wine for each course. Our waitress, while attentive and pleasant, didn't know the compact menu thoroughly. Our steaks had the appropriate internal temperature, but the exteriors were too well done.
Perhaps my wife and I have been spoiled by our experiences at Highland's Bar and Grill in Birmingham, but 211 Clover Lane just didn't measure up. The most frustrating thing was it obviously has the potential to really be a fine restaurant.

Enchanting. Quiet and refined. Easy to have a conversation, attentive service. Portions are just right , not excessive . Menu choices are elegant and interesting and always delicious. You won't regret choosing to book your next lunch, brunch or dinner here. Also, parking is a breeze because of its neighborhood location . 4 stars out of 4!!!!

Waitress started off by telling us no specialty cocktails b/c bartender wasn't there-someone was filling in. Bummer b/c they usually have good cocktails. No problem-so I ordered wine. Waitress then makes a joke about it being her 2nd day b/c she couldn't figure out what "bourbon, neat" meant when my dining companion ordered her bourbon. Not sure she was really joking. Ordered a pork chop that was partially undercooked. Not pink but almost raw. And, I and one of my dining companions ordered 2nd round of drinks to be had with dinner; the drinks didn't show up until the end of dinner.

I am a NY foodie moved down here about five years ago. Love the food scene and foodie vibe.
This was the best of the best so far. The dinners we choose were excellent. The waitress was wonderful at subtly steering the directions of appetizers and wine selection, the portions were generous without being overwhelming. Nice hush, no rush. Can't wait to bring other couples wit us next time.

Our dinner at 211 Clover was not up to their usual standard. My husband requested that his filet be prepared "Pittsburg style," which is charred on the outside, but the inside should be medium. The inside was rare. I ordered the trout, which as good but came with sautéed spinach and grits, so everything was soft. The dish really needed something crunchy on it. Presentation was not artistic or unique in any way. The best thing - as always - is the great bartender in the lounge.

another, always consistent, place here in town where a wonderful meal can be shared as a couple or a group of friends. The bar area is an excellent before dinner gathering place and the wine list isn't the overwhelming booklet we have come to know in some newer restaurants, but is very good in the selections they offer.

We had a dinner reservation to celebrate our anniversary and had never been there before. Our overall impression was that the restaurant is trying to be upscale and has the potential but not the level of service necessary to fulfill that potential.
We were surprised to learn there was no first course - just salads, entrees and desserts. My husband was disappointed that no domestic beer was available, nor did they have a beer list. I'm not sure where they got the one they served him.
We were offered one slice f bread before our salads were served but no more. The salads were good, as was my entree, a pork tenderloin. My husband enjoyed his ribeye but felt it was not worth the price. Despite the fact we did not order dessert, we were there an hour and a half. We only saw 3 staff members the entire time.
All in all, we were disappointed with the experience when compared to the price ($107 + tip) and the time we spent waiting for each course and the check. This amount of money is much better spent at Corbett's.

The ambiance was peaceful and relaxing, though a bit pretentious. The food was very good but extremely small portions. As a result of the portion size, it was more than fully priced! First visit. Probably won't return.

No matter whether it is lunch,brunch or dinner, 211 Clover is just about perfect. Portions
are just right, selections are varied and include local options and the atmosphere is like
being in someone's home. You can have conversations that can be heard without shouting.
It is a mini vacation.....a glass of chilled sparkling wine with lunch.......
Excellent food, excellent experience. Do not like my food piled a la the current fad, prefer it arranged discretely (separately) on the plate. Will request it next time. Coffee was undistinguished and having it served in a glass cup is rather off-putting. Lovely trout, tasty ice cream. Spinach properly cooked, as were potatoes. Upgrade flatware. Thanks.
Another fabulous meal!
This restaurant constantly hits it out of the park. Had a fabulous pasta dish with asparagus, roasted peppers and cream. And Weds are 1/2 price wine nights so nothing not to like about that. And, as always, Katie continues to demostrate why she's the best at her job!!
211 Clover Lane is worth the 'find'
Although it is hard to explain how to find 211 Clover Lane Restaurant, once new patrons arrive, they are relieved they did not give up on the search for one of the best lunches in town! My two friends who were new to this 'best kept secret' were most pleased with their lunch choices. The server, who has worked there for many years, was attentive and knowledgeable as usual!
A perfect Anniversary Dinner
Thank you to the staff at 211 Clover Lane for making our Anniversary dinner so special. It was our first visit to the restaurant but it will not be our last. Everything here was fantastic -- the ambiance, the menu, the food, the service, the recognition of our Anniversary (complimentary dessert)! I had the goat cheese stuffed peppers as a starter and they were wonderful - for my main course I had the salmon, stone ground grits and spinach - all cooked to perfection and the best salmon I've ever had! My husband had the house salad and the walleye and he raved about both. Our server was wonderful - knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
211 Clover Lane is such a steady wonderful place to dine. I have never had a bad meal or had bad service. The flavor of the dining is great and they have an outstanding wine list. Can be a bit noisy if you're sitting next to the wrong table. They do have a recessed area for a larger party that feels very private.
Lunch at 211 Clover
We recently joined friends for lunch at 211 Clover. We had not been there in several years. It will not be so long til the next time we visit. The atmosphere is very cozy. Our server was very professional. Although he was efficient and friendly, he was also unobtrusive and we enjoyed a leisurely lunch. The food was delicious. Well prepared. Very fresh ingredients. Will definitely return and soon!
I had lunch with a girlfriend on a Saturday afternoon. The food was excellent and there were several light, yet satisfying options. Price was great as we'll. The ambiance is definitely a girls' lunch, nice GNO, or a nice date with your SO. Probably not a "guys" choice for an everyday date but definitely great food and nice atmosphere. Fun to dress up a bit for lunch too!
Thoroughly enjoyed a birthday celebration lunch with eight women. All lunch entrees were delicious, especially the chicken curry, and the selection is great. Fresh ingredients, nice portions, fair prices. Fresh bread was served with olive oil. Desserts were a highlight, particularly the chocolate pot de crème and the apply tart... delicious. Service was attentive, and were able to enjoy a room just for our small group. Will be back for sure!
Food, service, atmosphere - it's all at 211 Clover Lane. Of course the company of my husband was a bonus. We are born and bred New Yorkers and it's thrilling to go to a restaurant and have an incredibly delicious, comfortably classy personal dining experience. Since moving to Louisville, this has become my favorite
