Outstanding Food – The food was spectacular, the service was great and it was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. There wasn't anything on the menu that didn't sound great and everything we ordered was fantastic. Don't miss this hidden gem uptown. I didn't even know it existed until my husband surprised me for my anniversary.
This upscale neighborhood bistro does its neighborhood proud. – The Scene
Depending on your perspective, Clancy's is either a formal neighborhood joint or a casual contemporary bistro. Either way, this secluded Uptown restaurant draws rave reviews and serves a dedicated local clientele. Celebrating families, goo-goo eyed couples and reminiscing old friends share the dining room and adjoining bar on any given night.
Expect to find innovative twists on Creole favorites, heavy on the seafood and solid grilled items. Crab fans rejoice. There always seem to be plenty of options here, including a smoked soft-shell crab that brings new depth of flavor to the pan-fried classic. (Did I mention that it's also smothered in sauteed lump crabmeat?) Other good bets are the substantial beef tenderloin with equally powerful yet complimentary flavors of port and English Stilton--the king of bleu cheeses. Clancy's bartenders are known for their generous hand when pouring pre-dinner cocktails, so brace yourself for a good belt.
Great Old New Orleans Restaurant – The smoked soft shell crab is amazing. Oysters with brie is a great appetizer. Seemed to have far fewer tourists than the French Quarter restaurants or Commanders.
casually elegant – No need to feel out of place or unwelcome here. The service is polite and helpful and dignified. You can have a very elegant experience without the stuffiness that other places have. The wine list is enormous for such a small place. And the food is great. The crabmeat salad is unbelievable. They must have a secret stash of 10 lb. crabs somewhere. Make sure to get one of their homemade desserts. Excellent experience.
authentic NOLA neighborhood place – First impression: Great neighborhood ambience. Next impression: terrific food. Don't let the limited menu deceive you. Everything we had exceeded expectations. Added bonus, the waitstaff let us sit for almost three hours while we ate, chatted, laughed and enjoyed the whole experience. The fried eggplant appetizer was exceptional. The crab salad was a light lunch. Add dessert and coffee and you have another great NOLA dining experience.
