Charcuterie and wine!!!

Love this place. We love their cheese and meat plates and their pizzas are rather yummy. The location is great, especially in the warmer months when their windows are open and you can people and dog watch. We live on the other side of Queens Boulevard but it's an easy walk for some food and wine... read more

I have been here several times. It's a great place to bring friends. The meat and cheese plates are delightful. The wine selection is also extensive.

Thin crust pizzas are great. So is the Hummus and Pan Catalan. Cheese selection could use some broadening, and some salad options would be nice too. But comfortable atmosphere, nice wine selection by the glass and friendly service makes in a neighborhood regular spot for us.

Comfortably nestled on the corner of 45th and Skillman Avenue in Sunnyside Queens, Claret has many good things to recommend. The staff, the wine and beer selection, the food, and above all the location make for quite a nice night out. Two major downsides: 1-the acoustics are so bad when the large windows are closed, even the smallest crowd will... More

The restaurant has great wine and food. It's also a really nice atmosphere. Not a huge space but it isn't cramped either. They also had a band later in the night. I recommend this place.

I have visited here many times of the past few years, never disappoints. Can be a little pricey, but a great "date spot", good ambiance and I think the best wine selection in the area! I have also gone there when they have had live music and I really enjoyed that "extra", I would def. look out for events like... More

My friends and my spouse spent many nights here during our vacation in New York. We just kept returning... The evenings were warm and the wine was properly chilled. It does get rather busy, but with locals. It's easy to get to from Manhattan and it's in a very safe neighbourhood. They also offer cheese and meats to go with... More

Everything about this place is great! The staff are lovely. The wine selection is great as is the beer selection. The food is tasty, my favorite is the thin crust pizza. They do great specials. It is a child friendly place. You can sit outside on a sunny day. It is the perfect neighborhood place to meet your friends.
