This was my third visit to Clover. Little know fact about Clover, but they are proud to tell you that everything is locally sourced, sustainable and fresh. They prepare EVERYTHING on sight, breads pastas and cut and age their meats as well. It was Thursday night and they were hosting two large parties and saying goodbye to a third when we walked in, (drat me for not making reservations but it was a Wednesday night!) So it was going to be a 45 minute wait..we looked at each other and said ok. We sat at the bar and ordered a bottle of wine Ca’Bolani Pinot Grigio 2009, we weren't sure what we were going to have, so this wine was safe to go with about everything, and it did. We ordered a starter - Shrimp and Polenta, back to that in a bit. About ten minutes later (with two large groups putting in orders?) we were presented with a Crab, Spinach and Artichoke appetizer. We told the server that we ordered the Shrimp, and she apologized offered it to us on the house and put in for out Shrimp and Polenta order again. It was a great recovery but it would not have been a that terrible, the miss prepped app was our second choice. Both were wonderful, the chorizo with the shrimp was a delightful palette teaser, and the crab spinach and artichoke dip was not your normal fare, very tasty. I might add that the second app was delivered only 10 minutes after the first. It was not quite as long of a wait as we were told when we were offered a table. So we moved upstairs with our wine. Brian came to our table and introduced himself as our server. Nice, attentive and knowledgeable about the wine and food selections. With two appetizers under our belts, my dinning partner and I were not ready for something heavy. We opted on splitting the Dungeness Crab and Mascarpone Ravioli, (what no split charge? How delightful!!!). The butter sauce was grand, and yes everything is still pairing nicely with the Pinot Grigio. I did ask to include a Pomegranate Salad, just cause I needed some greens. We were stuffed by the end, but we had to try some deserts. We had the baklava and the tiramisu, both were wonderful...the tiramisu was a selected as a challenge. My dinning partner did not like tiramisu before we started dinning together, at a previously visited restaurant I ordered it and she sampled and loved it. So it is going to be our custom to try the tiramisu everywhere we go. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 10! So what about the place itself - I would take a first date here or celebrate my 25th anniversary here. I would bring a business partner here, or I would come by myself. Wonderful selections of wines food is inventive and the service is incredible. Now wait for this one...they apologized for the long wait for our food to come up. Was it the company or was it really only twenty minutes...remember the two large and demanding groups. They done good by me.
