Had the pizza and wine Happy Hour deal and was very satisfied with open-window atmosphere, food and service. Worth finding.

I can't remember the last time I have been so disappointed with my dinner. I ordered spicy nuts and a classic pizza. My husband had a chorizo pizza. We waited for at least 15 minutes for the water and additional 10 for the nuts, and a further 20 minutes for the pizza to arrive. The server apologised for the delay... More

This is such a lovely, neighborhood wine bar. The staff are quite knowledgeable and friendly. Service is terrific and the menu offers enough variety for both beer and wine drinkers.

With a name like this, ypu would think this places excels in wines, in fact it is their weakness. It is disappointing because their food is consistently good and their service genuinely friendly. In my experiznce one can find good wines to sell at $30-40 in a restaurant and Claret need to research the subject a little more.

I went to Claret a couple of weeks ago while in town visiting a dear friend. She really wanted to take me here and she and her fiance enjoy it a lot. I had a glass of the old vine zinfandel which was really great. I enjoyed the hudson valley smoked salmon salad which was unique presented with the salmon... More

Love this place. We love their cheese and meat plates and their pizzas are rather yummy. The location is great, especially in the warmer months when their windows are open and you can people and dog watch. We live on the other side of Queens Boulevard but it's an easy walk for some food and wine. Thumbs up!!!

I have been here several times. It's a great place to bring friends. The meat and cheese plates are delightful. The wine selection is also extensive.

Thin crust pizzas are great. So is the Hummus and Pan Catalan. Cheese selection could use some broadening, and some salad options would be nice too. But comfortable atmosphere, nice wine selection by the glass and friendly service makes in a neighborhood regular spot for us.

Comfortably nestled on the corner of 45th and Skillman Avenue in Sunnyside Queens, Claret has many good things to recommend. The staff, the wine and beer selection, the food, and above all the location make for quite a nice night out. Two major downsides: 1-the acoustics are so bad when the large windows are closed, even the smallest crowd will... More
