This is a charming restaurant in “downtown” Clayton. The cuisine is upscale Italian with a number of seafood, chicken, and veal items, but the menu is loaded with pastas and pizza items as well. In addition, there are also great daily specials. From the specials items I had the lamb chops and an appetizer of figs with goat cheese and prosciutto. My recommendation: if the figs are available, don’t miss them. These were the largest tastiest figs that I have ever had. There is a full bar and a nice wine-by-the-glass list. The staff, including our server and the busboy, were very friendly and efficient. The restaurant is quiet and refined and there is some seating on an outdoor porch. There is a small parking lot and street parking is available.

Four of us had a pleasant meal. My veal with four fungi was tasty, my wife's polenta was a bit too rich, a friend's eggplant dish had too much cheese for her taste (although she has eaten here frequently).

We saw an ad for La Veranda and decided to try it before going to listen to the Music in the Grove. From the moment we walked in the door, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable re the menu offerings. They were very accommodate our request for separate checks. The Happy Hour menu was fantastic. We tried the ribs, chicken wings, pot stickers, and my favorite, the asparagus with brie. We were not rushed but just the right attention was paid to us. All ten of us would highly recommend this place even if you weren't going to Music in the Park.

It was all good last night, dining at La Veranda with our friends.
We were in love with their rosemary bread and polenta and each of us enjoyed our entrees too. All in all a very pleasant experience in the cute little Western inspired town of Clayton!

This charming neighborhood restaurant along the creek never fails to deliver. From a quiet dinner to a small gathering of friends and family, the food and service are as good as it gets. Last night we enjoyed Happy Hour drinks and appitizers, then ordered three terrific dishes from the menu. Lobster-Bisque-risotto, Lamb chops with Pomegranate Sauce and Chicken Cacciatore were praised by all.
We have also enjoyed breakfast on Sunday's after walking the lovely trails along the Creek.
