“One of the best meals we've had in a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We went to Le Clos last night for the first time after reading TA reviews. Terrific meal and exemplary service. Our daughter is gluten intolerant and they handled it admirably, modifying dishes as needed -- unusual for a full restaurant on a Friday night on a holiday weekend. They made her gluten-free rolls and our server made great recommendations for her and for us. We enjoyed every bite of each dish: an appetizer "fish cake" made with salmon and grouper (like a big crab cake); a lovely salad split three ways; and ahi tuna, grouper (see below), and shrimp as mains. We took some of the mains home to leave room for two desserts - a creme brulee and homemade vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce - both lucious. Our server Barbara was a consummate pro from beginning to end. We'll be sure to go back the next time we're in the area.

“Just as good as last time!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Have not been here for almost a year. Went last night for my wife's birthday and everything was great.....food and service.

My wife had the special fish cakes for an appetizer with the scallops.....she reported both as outstanding. I had the Le Clos salad with the duck an entree.....outstanding too!!!!

Yes, it gets loud when it is full....especially when there is a large party and wine begins to flow. And, we had the extra pleasure of of few rather eccentric customers who wanted to either tell everyone they were from Toledo (over and over again!) and another who visited with the large party for while. It was really humorous......and, it sure did not ruin our meal. Reminded me of small, family restaurants we visited throughout the south of France....except we could understand a lot more of what was said.

“Wonderful food -too loud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

While the food was excellent and the service great it was so loud you could not hear the people at your own table. Would not go back - which is not good since the food was so amazing. Fish special, chicken, steak it was all good.

“Senior Managers involved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

Went to the restaurant in the late afternoon and met a very nice staff member just arriving - explained we had just come in by boat - they couldn't have been more accommodating. We had the general manager as our server and she was into boats , good food, and wine. Overall a fun meal with a diversified menu (not just the standard fish with a few cuts of beef thrown in) and reasonable wines.
