Cliffords is the perfect special-occasion destination to me. Excellent food, the best service anywhere near Pittsburgh (anywhere I've been outside of Pittsburgh as well), and lacking the snobbery you might find at other high-end restaurants. John the waiter is the best! He seems to truly enjoy what he does and is excellent at it. The other servers are also top notch. Reservations on a weekend must be made 3-4 weeks in advance so that tells you something. You can typically get in same week on a Wednesday or Thursday. Prepare to spend a significant amount of time there. This is not the place if you are looking for a quick meal. Going to Cliffords IS your evening entertainment. Plan at least 2 hours. Your meal will be expensive, but you won't be disappointed. I've gone to other restaurants such as Ruth's Chris or the Hyehold and have come away thinking I've overspent for what I got or that the atmosphere was not as welcoming. I stick to Cliffords or Monterey Bay now.
