Excellent food, service and value

My wife and I happened upon Clementine's by accident while driving from San Francisco to LA. We needed a place to stop for dinner, and after trying several places with no parking, lousy menu, etc. we stopped at Clementine's. The food is good, and is a great value. The pie is incredible... read more

After reading reviews of the restaurant, my husband and I were looking forward to dining at Clementine's. We also love homey meals. It's clearly a place that has been around for a long time and owes its charm to it. We were greeted warmly by a sweet lady who seemed to be the owner. The clam chowder was good. We... More

We spent a night in Carpinteria and decided to eat at Clementine's. It was a cold night out, and we were welcomed into their cozy nest of a place. Food and service was great, but the real treat is that a slice of pie of your choosing is included with every meal. I had apple, and for me it was... More

We've been in carp for 5 months and sadly just dined here for the first time. It's the best food in town. Great service. We will be back often.

Greeted as if we were family. Patty was our server but more like our best friend. Food was more than you would expect. Meals come with freshly baked baggette; veggie garnish; soup (homemade) or salad; entree; rice; fries; or baked potato (which was also fried); and dessert of homemade pie with real whipped cream. We ordered the unbelievably great fried... More

I didn't know what to expect when we walked in to this little Steak joint. The decor tells you i'm outdated but we decided to give it a try since it was busy. My husband and I always share our plates. So they split the plate without charging you. that's good. The bread they give you is so good. It... More

Clementines is this local's preferred restaurant, especially for a special occasion. My personal favourite is the filet mignon, while my kids enjoy the fried chicken (one order feeds two hungry adolescents) and the amazing freshly baked bread that comes on every table. All meals come with soup or salad, or if you're hungry, pay one extra dollar and get both.... More

Clementine's is a small restaurant with an old-time feel. Bing and Frank on the stereo and elegantly dressed servers. The food was wonderful! Home baked bread and a relish tray to start. All of the dinners come with soup and/or salad, a generous entree, and freshly made pie. There were at least 4 fish specials and a prime rib special... More

Happened upon this little place in Carpinteria and it was fantastic! Our waitress Patty was wonderful and all her recommendations were spot on. All meals include salad and dessert so its a lot of food AND ITS ALL DELICIOUS. Prices are very reasonable and they offer locally caught fish. Everything is homemade from the salad dressing to the pie.

Only in Carpinteria 1 night and really glad we ate here. Huge meal with lots of courses. Service was excellent. Everything we ate was good, but in particular, the steak, the baked potato and the home made pie for dessert (I had blackberry which was delicious). Huge portion overall so you definitely need to be hungry. We thought it very... More
