The restaurant and restrooms were spotless. The service was impeccable from G.V. The food was beyond delicious, front the Bollywood Fries to the Falafel Bowl and the Chicken Tandoori Street Tacos. Everything was a wonderful combination of flavors. And for dessert the Clove Apple Cake with homemade Cardamom Ice Cream was the final surprise that topped it all off. The portions were also incredibly generous and service was super fast. We enjoyed our quiet lunch for two so much that we returned the next day with the entire family to try the dinner menu and were not disappointed.

The menu is very interesting—they have some classic Indian dishes but also some Italian offerings, naan pizzas, and even tacos! We both enjoyed our meals (he had Saag Chicken and I had the Pesto Pasta with vegetables), but the Paneer Sizzler appetizer did not quite meet our expectorations. Our server was very good, and everything came out on time. It was not super busy, even on a Friday.

I booked a reservation for six people on October 30, 2021 at 7pm through Open Table at Clover and Cardamom and I received confirmation of the reservation. When I arrived at the restaurant a few minutes prior to 7pm, the owner said that I didn't have a reservation. He said that he couldn't seat a party of six. He could put four of us at one table and two at another table. I told him that I had the reservation and asked if he had it. He was rude and told me that I didn't have a reservation. I said isn't the point of having a reservation so that the restaurant will hold a table for the guests? He said there was no reservation and no table. I was extremely upset with this guy lying to me, so I left the restaurant while I pulled up the reservation on Open Table. As I went back into the restaurant, the owner saw me coming through the door and he ran into the back of the restaurant and made me wait 5 minutes before he came back over. Several times, he looked at me during those 5 minutes and each time he glared at me. Once he finally came over, he said that he wouldn't have a table for me and told me to leave because I was causing a disturbance. If that's the type of behavior a new business owner exhibits, why would anyone spend money at his restaurant. The food might be good, but I'll never know as he wouldn't seat my party of six. I'll never go back. There are too many honest business owners who work hard to build a customer base, this guy isn't one of them. If you read this review and still go to the restaurant, you take your chances with a rude and dishonest business owner. That's your choice, my choice is to let folks know my experience and hope that I save at least one other person the frustration I experienced.

Once seated we did not receive menus until I asked (another table came in 5 minutes after us and were seated with menus). When our order was finally taken one meal came out 20 minutes before the other meal (my son was finished eating before I even started). The waiter didn't seem surprised but I was surprised that they didn't hold the first meal. Also a sincere apology or offer of dessert or something would've went a long way instead of just ignoring the situation. The Butter Chicken was delicious, but everything else will prevent us from returning.

I have been to Clove & Cardamom three times within a month. It is especially convenient if you are attending a show at Merriweather Post Pavilion. You can park, eat and walk to Merriweather. I highly recommend making a reservation before a show.

First, they clearly did not have our Open Table reservation accounted for. That said, we were sat on time. The restaurant was full. It was Saturday night and they are near a concert venue so that’s to be expected, as their preparedness is to be expected too. About ten minutes later our waitress showed up and simply said “Are you ready to order?” We explained we would like to order drinks and an appetizer then order entrees in a couple minutes. She didn’t offer to help with the menu and her answers to our questions were not very informed. About 5-10 minutes later we’re got our samosas. They tasted good but I would bet they were premade frozen apps. After we finished those, after ordering our dinner and after many other follow ups, hingeing on frustration, our drinks showed up 30 minutes later. Shortly thereafter food was brought to our table, however not the food we ordered. One was immediately evident and was sent back. The other we noticed a minute later, as it was made with chicken not tofu. Good thing I’m not an actual vegetarian! Ten minutes later, the second dish showed up, undercooked. Before eating, I confirmed with our waitress that we would be receiving a discount. These core issues were punctuated by general bad service. The same issues with tables around us had become the topic of restaurant-wide conversation. At this point we skipped additional drinks and dessert as we were having such a miserable time. When the hostess asked us how things were going and we said everything was horrible, she just laughed and walked away. The waitress then brought the handheld check device, confirmed everything we ordered, and left the bill with us, with no discount. So we called her back and she offered us $10 off $95!! We asked to speak to the manager. She went and spoke to him clearly in sight but he did not come to our table. She came back and offered one free entree and $10 off- roughly 25%. We paid and left-for good!!

The pomegranate martini was delicious as was the chosen tiki masala and the cauliflower appetizer. Can’t wait to go back.

Wife order a naan pizza which was awesome. Dad ordered Butter Chicken and I ordered Chicken Tikka Masala, they looked the same and both were VERY, VERY good (I personally like the Butter Chicken a little better). Mom ordered Tandori Chicken and Daughter ordered a shrimp dish (I don't remember which one), but both were excellent. I plan on returning with friends. Also, there is outdoor seating, but it was overcast the day we dined. Of note, I only rated the server as good, I think the server was new. I can't express enough how much we all liked our meals (and in my family we always share bites back and forth so I got to taste them all)

It’s a 5-10 minute walk away. Our reservation was for 5:45. The concert started at 7:30…we barely made it. The service was poor. We (2 of us) were promptly seated. Our food did not arrive until an hour later. For a ~50 seat restaurant this is not good. Our order was taken twice. Finally after an hour I called over a server and asked them if they could tell what we ordered (they all carry electronic devices, presumably connected to the kitchen). They could not. When I pointed out that we had been waiting an hour, our food arrived in less than 2 minutes. One of the entree’s we received was wrong. We did not send it back because of our time constraint. Two people dining next to us left after they waited longer than us for food that never arrived. The noise level is uncomfortable. The food was good, but because our wait was so long the ability to enjoy it was limited. They need to fix their service issues or they won’t be around for people to appreciate the food.
