The dinners offer a variety of wonderfully prepared food. Something for everyone. From the appetizers to the desserts, the attention to detail is recognized. Never a disappointing meal. This Restaurant is not to be missed.

Food & service absolutely 5-star, yet the atmosphere is welcoming and casual; Genuine European ambience enhanced by fresh, authentic food; THE meal I look forward to all year during our once a year visit to Hilton Head! (we've been coming to Claude & Ulis since it was called Café St. Tropez & it only gets BETTER every year.

Great French cuisine with many light offerings so you could save a few calories to splurge on dessert. I had dined here years ago, but had not visited recently, so I am pleased to say that the food has come along way from their early days. Pricing is very reasonable tor lunch, with vegetarian options, as well as many French... More

As usual our meal was delicious. From the spinach salad, to the duck, to the Grand Marnier souffle. The seafood crepe was amazing also. Country pate is a great appetizer.

We had a friend take us here for dinner. She has been coming for years. The owners were right there greeting you and making you feel immediately like family. The place is small, quite and nicely decorated. The food was outstanding from the appetizer to the main meal. No matter what we ordered, it was awesome and prepared well. The... More

My husband and I went to Claude and Uli's for our anniversary. We ordered chicken over linguini. It was excellent. The homemade vegetable soup extremely flavorful. Our waitress, Amanda, is absolutely the best and the most kind. Claude made us individual soufflé which entertained our taste buds. We will return and always choose Claude and Uli's for special occasions. Magnifique.

We were greeted by the effervescent and delightful, Uli! The food was scrumptious and the cocktails were delicious! John, our Bartender and Server, provided us with impeccable service! For dinner we chose the Tilapia Piccata and the Veal Normandie, and couldn't decide which entrée was better! Kendall, our Chef, created a fabulous Grand Mariner soufflé with a warm chocolate sauce...

The food was very good and we enjoyed Chef Claude coming out to greet us personally and celebrate the event with our family. It was an extra special touch. We traveled from out of... More
