Two souffles in one meal!

Located in a small mall on US 278 near the causeway to Hilton Head Island, Claude and Uli's is unassuming from the outside and would be easy to miss. Don't. Inside, the restaurant is a very warm and welcoming French bistro. Run by a couple, Claude works the kitchen and Uli works the front of the... read more

We had an absolutely delicious dinner and a great time at Claude & Ulis. This is one of our favorite dinner and lunch spots in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton area. To have authentic French cuisine hand crafted by Claude and enough options for kids is a rare find. On this visit some started with She Crab or onion soup while... More

Hilton Head has many restaurants at all price levels, but why go on vacation to eat the same food I can eat anyplace? I want great food. Claude and Uli’s, just off-island near Moss Creek in Bluffton, was the perfect find for us. I could rave about the duck, the fish special, and the gazpacho, and the compliments would all... More

The ambiance is fine, it's easy to get to, the parking is ample and that is where the accolades end. There were six in our party and some of us ordered the Early Bird specials. We found the selections not exciting and portions meager. I ordered onion soup and Caesar salad. The soup was fine, however the salad was not.... More

We came with a living social just to try it. From the watermelon salad to the grouper to the amazing chocolate cake and signature soufflé. The staff was amazing and really cares and loves the food they are serving. They really cared that their guest had a wonderful experience. Would recommend this to anymore who wants to have a special... More

The fly which had pestered us for a half hour finally embedded up in my wine. When I told the server she immediately took mutt glad to the kitchen and turned work a clean, EMPTY, glass. Her manager stopped by and said the fly had been a nuisance all evening but there was nothing she could do about a discount... More

Just back from my first (of what will be many) visit to Claude & Uli's. Lunch was perfect. The atmosphere, food, service (Jocya) and value were beyond excellent. This could not have been a better experience. Can't wait to sample dinner!

Lived in Normandy 30 years ago and have been looking for a place that could match the original experience and this is IT! Great food, Great service! Everything was excellent. Great wine selections, very helpful waitstaff. So good, ate there two nights in a row and the second time was as great as the first!

The food and ambiance at Claude and Uli's deserve all the accolades you read here on TA. We arrived on a Tuesday evening, early and without reservations. We were greeted warmly and our server, Ashley, appeared within a couple of minutes after we sat down. The food: prepared beautifully and with a skillful knowledge of flavor. We devoured the escargots... More
