Great place

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 The decor tells you i'm outdated but we decided to give it a try since it was busy.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

Enjoyed dinner here with friends. We ordered steak and fried chicken. Both were excellent. Chicken was best ever! The other specialty is home-made pies. I had the peach which was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant. Under same ownership for many many years!

Excellent eats! You may have to wait for a table as this place is a local fav! You won't leave hungry. Price of the meal includes dessert which features the best home made pies in the area. I would recommend the Blackberry pie, if they have any left! Great staff who work hard for your business.

This place has been around 40 plus years, and when you walk in you feel like you walked into a home. The staff is amazing and the food is delicious. Our dinner was the new york steak and it came with soup, salad and dessert. The soup was pea soup and it was outstanding along with every bit of the... More
