Absolutely perfect meal! Prime rib and Sea bass were excellent. My friend commented it was the best prime rib she had ever had! Great service and charming little place. Can't wait to go back.

We drive an hr plus, a couple of times a year to this gem of a place. Been coming here over 20 plus years, the ambiance, food and service, has not disappointed us so far. It's a steakhouse, so bring your appetite. Warm bread and butter, relish dish to start. Home made soup, salad to start. The fish is fresh,... More

Clementine steakhouse is a darling restaurant in Carpinteria. The food has a set price ranges anywhere from around $20-$34. However for that price you get bread, veggies, soup, salad, your entree, and pie. All the food is made by hand by the owner himself. The The mushroom and spinach casserole was to die for. And the halibut that we had... More

My first impression of Clementine's was that I had gone back in time to when restaurants were comfortable and they knew who you were. I had the soup and salad which came with a little loaf bread. The clam chowder was delicious. My husband had the liver and onions. He had been talking about wanting that meal for months because... More

This was a dining experience so bad, I'm not sure where to begin. Let's start with the ambience. Imagine a large dining room with tacky decor and elderly patrons who have diminished taste buds. Throw in some Sinatra era type music that intermittently cuts in and out of antiquated speakers, add really bad food at extremely high prices, pair it... More

Classic Dinner House. We ate in the garden room. They served carrot sticks, pepporincini, pickles, and celery sticks as soon as we sat down. Love that tradition. We had the NY Steak. It came with soup, salad, potato and PIE! Yummy.

You will not leave hungry! Big portions, and everyone gets pie for dessert - really good pie and amazing home made whip cream. The restaurant is old, but we liked it - we loved the staff who treated you like family and the 40's music playing in the background made me feel like I was having dinner at grandma's house....
