My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at the C while we were staying at The Clement. The service was professional and friendly, and the food was very tasty (the kambuchi appetizer was really memorable). If you want to get the best view, request a window seat when you make a reservation -- although the staff was really nice... More

We only ate breakfast, but both days the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The coffee was good, the kids loved the hot chocolate, and the chantilly cream on the waffles was ridiculously rich! They offer a buffet, but don't jump straight to it. There are some gems on the menu.

First of all, the staff and management is first rate. They acknowledge you immediately and get you set. I splurged on the abalone appetizer. Abalone is over-rated and over-priced as far as I'm concerned. Here, they presented an outstanding serving with au gratin potatoes and delicious greens. I had the veal cheeks, and they were superb. Since I live in... More

I ordered scallops, they were good but the serving was small. Enough for me but I don't eat much. If my husband had been there he would've left the restaurant hungry.

I really enjoyed having a few drinks here. I can't review the restaurant part because I didn't dine there. But I did have a few happy hour drinks at the bar. It is a really nice relaxed atmosphere, with a great view. Happy hour is great. They offer half-priced drinks and small plates ( on Sun-Thurs from 4-7 I believe.... More

Beautiful setting, all tables have an ocean view. First class service, our waiter was especially helpful finding options for our young children.

Meal started rough. Ordered a wine and was told they had to go look for it and that we should order. So we did. This is always a bad move IMHO. Keep your wine close, it should not take minutes to find it. A few minutes later, waitress returned indicating the wine was out of stock. This is a major... More

Oh my gosh the food is good. The service is impeccable. For dinner there was a guitarist, I believe, playing soft music. Casual atmosphere where some people have torn jeans and others do not, if you know what I mean. The fish, the meat, the wine. I cannot say enough positive things about this restaurant. The service everything. You won't... More

The atmosphere is modern and upscale with a view of the ocean across an exterior boardwalk. We were able to get a window table but I was disappointed in the entree choices. We were there for breakfast and I wanted something simple after a holiday season of eating. There were no simple choices and everything was pricey.
