The food was OK but in summer I prefer to sit in a room with day light or even outside. We were squeezed in a basement , too much tables and no day light.

Great Martini Bar! The bartender was busy but still attentive to our needs. Suggested the Victoria's Secret Martini. No matter what mojito you order, you will enjoy it!

My boyfriend and I started going to Clydz last year after hearing about it though friends. Our favorite drink is the Smoky Donkey by far. It's and acquired taste, but really good. For the food, I really liked the Deviled Eggs and the Thai wings. The scallops, gators in a blanket and nachos, the times I've had them were not... More

Martini's are good. Bartenders make great drinks. Although it was Happy Hour the prices are not that great unless you order house drinks. Premium brands will cost you premium $$$.

This is a great martini bar and has some interesting food. There is a lot of options available for martinis. The service is not that great and the place can get extremely crowded. I often have to wait a long whole before I can get service.

This is my absolute favorite spot downtown New Brunsick was an exceptional gourmet menu and wide variety of martinis - the Lychee martini is the best. Lunch, dinner or late night - the menu options always include wild game and other specialities. It's fine dining in a very relaxed and happening atmosphere. Get seated in a booth behind the bar...

During a difficult time at the Middlesex Courts, lunch was had at Clydz. It was close, service was quick, staff was understanding, and food was good. It was a great place for a breather during court sessions where one could be left to their own thoughts or engage in a discussion without being interrupted. The staff should be highly commended...

was told by a friend what a great place, turned out not to be so. Very dark inside couldn't even see the wine list. Smelled like smoke even though it's a non smoking place. Bartender inattentive and uninterested so we left.
