This is the 3rd time in the last year we've been to Clearview and come away feeling like it was a waste of time and money.
Slow service, below average food, and a general attitude of 'we don't care what you think'.
As Hawkes Bay locals we are more than happy to pay top dollar for excellent food, wine and service in many of our local wineries. However clearview's inability to meet expectations is astonishing. No fish available, despite being a fully booked Saturday and we arrived at 11.30am. 3 of us had steak which was so tough it hurt to cut it, and when we re-ordered it took a further 45 mins for replacement meals to come. Hesitantly we ordered dessert hoping for some improvement, alas the wait again was 60 mins for choc tart that was pre-made and dry pastry.
The small plates are so tiny my 11yr old daughter was still hungry after hers. The wait staff had no ability to answer questions regarding gluten free or dairy free, and even when they went away to check with the kitchen came back with incorrect info. Not funny when you have a celiac and a child that requires an ambulance if digests dairy. And the list goes on......
My recommendation....go somewhere else, don't waste 3 hrs of your life and a decent amount of money and still drive away feeling hungry, dissatisfied and unheard or cared for.
