We brought our parents who are elderly and the clover accommodated us wonderfully. The patio is a straight shot from the parking lot so it was easy getting to the seats. They are serious about the mask wearing until you dine which made us feel...better as our parents are elderly. The drinks were excellent and the main dishes were nice as well. They don't offer much of a red meat selection but the seafood was good. The deserts are exceptional.More

My wife and I were visiting from out of town and made reservations here for an early dinner following a recommendation from local friends. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and asked to be seated inside. The tables at the front of the...restaurant are spaced for social distancing, so there were only a few in view. One was occupied by another couple, so the hostess seated us at another table for two in that part of the restaurant. The table the hostess chose for us is located with one seat facing to the North and the other Facing West. This is important, because... The bright sun from the day was beginning to set and was shining its full intensity through the window directly opposite my seat, making it impossible to see anything but bright white light, even with the semi-transparent shade pulled. Reading the menu was out of the question... couldn’t read the menu on my phone after trying the “socially responsible” QR code and couldn’t read the printed version we requested either. Common sense would typically guide any staff member familiar with the restaurant’s layout to avoid seating a party at this table on a clear day while the sun was setting, but no, this is where our hostess nevertheless chose to seat us. We requested a different table. We were ultimately moved to another table after receiving what was clearly the disapproving “stare of disdain”. The hostess grudgingly agreed to seat my wife and I out of the direct sunlight... at a table set for six. We ordered drinks and promptly received them... one of the better parts of our meal. This was an early dinner, so we decided we would split a salad and a main course. When we finally had a look at the menu in standard lighting we were shocked. Prices in this part of the country must be at least 50% higher than what we’re familiar with virtually anywhere else... the Appetizer section of the menu was limited to five items and included garlic bread and warm house-made pretzels... $10 each. $10 for garlic bread or pretzels? Really? Oh c’mon, stop taking yourselves so seriously. We split the $11 Caesar salad – and enjoyed it. For our main we ordered the Sardo pasta (Pappardelle and root vegetables.) $29 Another fairly steep tariff for what is essentially pasta and vegetables... and in their infinite wisdom the Clover management wanted another $5 to split it for us. We asked about the cost for the split and were told that we could split it ourselves at the table to avoid the upcharge. We chose that option and split the entrée when it arrived. Each of us took two bites and gave up. The pappardelle itself was tasteless, but coated with a sweet brown sauce neither of us could identify while the vegetables were either too soft or crunchy-hard and didn’t go with the soft pasta at all. There were two long beans, a few slivers of soft onion, three slices of yellow squash and something that looked like a red carrot that we could barely cut with a knife. The whole entrée was an overly complex mashup of things that didn’t belong together – and totally inedible. We requested our tab. The waitress noticed we had not eaten the pasta and inquired. We told her the concoction simply wasn’t to our liking. She returned with the check and advised she had mercifully removed the charge for the pasta from the total. We appreciate this gesture but doubt we would recommend this restaurant to anyone – and if we lived in the area would certainly never return. To us, Clover is the kind of place that portrays itself as a hip, cool, “today” kind of place, but overdoes the cool aspect to the extent it has lost all sense of purpose and meaning. After being cloistered at home for months, In today’s pandemic and post-pandemic environment, patrons want simple fare presented in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere where they can relax and enjoy a well-thought-out and well-prepared meal. Here the food appears to be all fluff and flourish with little central theme other than “make it fancy with lots of ingredients”. The patrons appear to be an annoyance. Get it together Clover, you’ve missed the point in a big way.More

Sunny, July early evening dinner. Sat on the patio. Nice colorful umbrellas offer shade. Greeted promptly and had reservations in patio. Friendly service. Drinks were really well made. Very good. Had the lavender empress and smoked passion. Both great on a hot day. Ceviche Appetizer...was good. Entrees were Alaskan Halibut and Scallops. Savory and good. Service was timely and prompt until 2nd beverage ordered and time to pay. Things really slowed down. Not sure why the extreme delay. After the delay with the 2nd drink, gave credit card for bill and waited, waited and waited over 20 mins for receipt to sign. By then the positive feeling for the evening was gone. Disappointed with the delay at the end, but overall recommend.More

Within walking distance from the Gonzaga campus, this is a restaurant my husband and I will definitely come back to for taking our college kid out for dinner on our next visit! In February, it was breakfast... very delicious and wonderfully prepared!

One of the best getaways for couples in Spokane. The Service is friendly and the food is a bit gourmet yet without any pretense. Flavor abounds and the presentation is always part of the pleasure. This is a Spokane dining jewel

Clover was recommended by friends, the unique family history is that the birthday celebrant, my sister, lived in the house in the 70’s while she attended GU. Dinner was a bit disappointing for the three of us, my partner enjoyed the cocktails. And desserts weren’t...even the size to address a young persons desires, very vey tiny.More

Unique atmosphere in a re-purposed home near the Gonzaga campus. Bar and a few tables downstairs with more seating upstairs. Great for a cozy date. Food was good, but to be honest I think Wild Sage and Luna are better for the price. Although, the...service was friendly and attentive. Dinner for two with appetizer walked out around $85.More

Twelve of us had reservations for lunch. We were anticipating the lunch because Clover has such a good reputation. However, the waitress Told us they were out of beef for burgers. They were also out of steak for a sandwich. really at 11:30 am? I...ordered the grilled garlic cheese sandwich and it was mostly bread and tasted no garlic. For a restaurant of this quality, it was a real disappointment and we won’t be returning.More

We reviewed a couple articles regarding “Romantic Restaurants in Spokane”, landing on Clover. It did not disappoint! The beet salad, and brussel sprout/wild mushroom appetizer, were nice starts. I opted for pistachio-encrusted halibut (lovely) and my husband chose the tri-tip sirloin with duck-fat-roasted potatoes and...asparagus. Our waitress recommended perfectly-paired glasses of wine. We wish we had chosen dessert differently; something lighter. However, that is not a reflection upon the restaurant. Clover’s Craftsman-style architecture, ambiance, and food were a delight!More
