Waiter was friendly and attentive. Kitchen was a bit slow. Food was interesting but not quite what I expected. Beef was ordered medium-rare but arrived very rare. Chocolate cake desert was disappointing, too sweet, too dry and a weird chocolate flavor. Menu was pricey and...More

I took my husband to Clarity for his birthday, before a concert at Wolftrap. We picked the restaurant for its proximity to Wolftrap and I didn't have especially high expectations. Wow! First of all, our server was knowledgable, unobtrusive but helpful, and unbelievably nice. Second,...More

The food is decent, but not worth the price. Service is good. Deserts were disappointing. Probably won’t come back.

I can’t say enough about the people and the food at Clarity. Seriously top shelf all the way around. Creative, caring, fun people serving creative, emotion-evoking food. Last night we had a snowy grouper & crab stuffed sole that was magnificent. A flash seared pompano...More

The laid back, young staff greets you with mild indifference....not a great start. The tables are crowded together, but still comfortable. The decor is average. The guests are allowed to wear anything, and I mean anything. Men in tee shirts are all too common even...More

After numerous couples, family, and friends meals, it’s hard to over praise this restaurant. The owner/chef consistently turns out new dishes with local seasonal produce and meats that are original, flavorful, and more than is expected. With this superb level of dining it’s increasingly hard...More

"My" happy hour? Or the restaurant's? I'm not even sure if they have a happy hour--I'd check their website.

While the staff is willing to honor requests, it is difficult to make a promise that there is no cross-contamination of tools and spaces. If the allergy is that serious I would attempt to find a vegan/ground nut free venue.
