Had dinner there Saturday night and enjoyed a tasty pork belly. Yummy! Small but satifying portion which allowed me to go for the dessert of the day - a lovely blueberry tiramisu. I love the fresh, clean decor and unpretentious feel of this place and...More

I am a recent re-convert to Claire's. To test the qualities of the new chef, we went as a couple and thoroughly enjoyed a mid-week dinner. The chardakopita was so good I wanted to cancel my entree and have more appetizers, but the trout in...More

While I live a town over, if I want a nice sit down dinner that will taste fabulous in a venue that makes you feel like a neighbour, Claire's is the place to go. My family tend to go several times a season and I'll...More

We visited the new Claire's incarnation perhaps a month after the reopened in order to give them a chance to work out the kinks. There were five of us on a Friday evening. The beverage service was good. They have always had good selections. The...More

I don't like to complain. Actually I take a lot before I decide to take a stand. I think it is when my favorite things go bad that I really get bothered. You know what I mean? How many times have you gone some place...More
