    Dinner was incredible. You'd never know this gem was sitting inside of a Double Tree off of Avenue Q. Such a pleasant surprise! Really modern and beautiful on the inside, of course it is a hotel, after all and the restaurant is located near the indoor pool... So, you will see families passing by in swimsuits in towels - so if that would dampen the experience/ambience for you, maybe try to make sure your table is tucked away in one of the north corners at the back of the dining room. Riley was our server and he was excellent. We'll be sure to ask for a reservation in his section when we return next time. Our group had the bison filet, shrimp and grits, and cajun pasta. All of which were a 10/10. I've lived in Lubbock my entire life and this is definitely one of the best dining experiences I've had. We also ordered drinks - the pineapple margarita was delicious (and strong) and the chilton's were great as well. Coconut tres leches was heavenly too. Definitely prepare yourself for the bill... The money you'll drop here is very atypical for dining out in the Lubbock area, but the food, service, and experience definitely make it worth the money!! (They also went out of their way to acknowledge and make the birthday of the friend we were celebrating at dinner very special!) FIVE STARS, CLARABOYA!:)

    It’s in a Doubletree hotel - couldn’t tell that from their ads. Our server Riley was great. The house Mule drink was very good. Everything else meh. Steak was ordered medium rare and it was blue. Seabass had fins and skin was still on but was rubbery and unpleasant. There was a singer/acoustic guitar guy playing moody music that felt kinda out of place. Riley got us a huge piece of German chocolate cake on the house to make up for the undercooked steak.

    Claraboya Scratch Kitchen + BarResponded on 22 July 2022I'm sorry that we missed the mark for you but I do hope that you will come back and talk with Chef Tony so that we can make this right! We really appreciate these reviews, as they help our crew to get better and grow! Hope to see you in the future !

    Our experience was fantastic! When we arrived at the restaurant we hadn’t researched the menu before hand and there were a few things my husband couldn’t eat. Our server Trent must have mentioned it to chef because Chef Antonio came out and totally talked to my husband about his dietary constraints and totally came up with a dish for him which was amazing! I ordered straight from the menu and WOW both the salad and main dish I ordered was fantastic. I felt like I was I was Guy Fieri taking each bite and admiring all the different flavor combinations. Chef Antonio came out again to make sure everything was ok even during the main dining hour!! Chef Antonio you made our night and thank you Trent who was also amazing and very knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. He also was on point with his service! A restaurant not yo be missed if you are in Lubbock! Best meal we have had in a long time and we are foodies:)

    Claraboya Scratch Kitchen + BarResponded on 27 June 2022Thank you so much for coming out! We are always willing to put in the extra step to ensure our customers dietary needs are met! I'm so glad that Chef Antonio was able to put a wonderful dish together for ya'll! Never hesitate to ask for a chef here at the Claraboya! Hope to see you again soon! :)

    It’s overpriced for what you get. I had a salad with scallops. The scallops were good. The Caesar salad was mediocre at best. The roll of romaine lettuce was put on a plate uncut with some cheese on top and dressing pored over it. For dessert, I had a cocunut tres leches cake which was delicious. The cocktails were good, but overpriced. $65 plus tip for a salad, piece of cake and 2 cocktails.

    I have enjoyed breakfast here before, but this was the first time I went at lunchtime. The coffee was not kept fresh at this hour, neither the coffee served nor the self-serve coffee. It was bitter and, for me, undrinkable. The omelet and hash browns were good and the fruit beautiful and flavorful. The avocado toast was good, but I would prefer it without raw greens. My biggest problem was with the service although it got much better once we found a waitress. When we walked in (with a reservation although it was not needed), we stood for a while before the front-desk clerk told us take a seat anywhere. Meanwhile, the bartender had made eye contact with us several times but never invited us to sit down. Nor did he tell a server we had sat at the front of the dining area. The restaurant is L-shaped, and only the bartender knew we were sitting around the corner from the servers. We finally went and found someone to help us, and from then on, the service was great. We will go back because this was one visit among several good ones. However, I hope they can figure out how to serve good coffee. On my last visit, it wasn't hot. Dinner, by the way, is excellent here.

    Maybe not the best choice for group dining. We brought 7 on a Thursday night. Very slow. Food was good but cold. Some dishes or components very obviously suffered from waiting on the rest to be plated. Would try again with a smaller group. The shareables were excellent although I’ve yet to try a bowl of Brussels worth $20

    Terrifically busy for Saturday lunch, but service was attentive and efficient. The orange salad with kale was delicious (and I don’t normally care for kale). Chicken caprese sandwich and fig grilled cheese sandwiches were tasty. It would be helpful to know restaurant is inside of the Double Tree Hotel. Maybe that could be added to their website?

    Went for brunch on Mothers Day - For being in the open area in a lobby of a hotel (doesn’t really announce that on OpenTable or their website). The experience wasn’t that bad. We had the banana foster French toast, strawberries and cream French toast and the Duck enchiladas. The duck enchiladas do not come with rice or beans or a side option. That plate seemed to be missing something but the French toast plates were delicious and filling. Moderately priced. The wait staff was pleasant, in fact the most pleasant we have seen in Lubbock in awhile. Lubbock like everywhere else is struggling to staff it’s service industry and it shows. Will try their lunch/dinner menu next time we are in Lubbock

    It really is just a hotel restaurant with no ambience. Corporate style. Sticky tables. The server was very friendly but service was slow. And she never asked us about drinks! Food was fine but nothing special. No sense that it was a “scratch kitchen “. Also no real need for a reservation. Just a seat yourself situation. I had to ask a hotel clerk if this was the restaurant as there was no sign. All in all a non-impressive experience for a Sunday birthday brunch.

    The food didn’t live up. Ordered the duck tacos . Not worth the money . There were 3 tacos which was small in size . Could have been either one more or larger in size and somehow the cheese didn’t blend with the tacos. The bread pudding was ok though the cream sauce was yummy

    Interesting preparation of food, overpriced, and way too salty. We were seated in the bar area, which was noisier than the smaller dinner area. Our waiter seemed new and was overly anxious about serving-there were 8 of us. He was sincere and trying and we don't fault him on that. We ordered wine and the server confesses that this was the first chardonnay he had opened. The duck tacos are good--but again, way too salty. Drinks were well done, but served in these weird glasses that were hard to hold onto.

    Was pretty excited to try this place out and after our delicious duck tacos I was looking forward to our main course. I ordered the seafood pasta and was pretty underwhelmed. The sauce/cream was pretty runny and was almost soup like and the veggies and seafood pieces were really big so I ended up taking one big bite of seafood and one big bite of veggies. The dish just didn’t work. My girlfriend got the claraboya salad with steak and it didn’t sit well with her. It was also RIGHT next to the lobby of the Double Tree so when the OU softball was taking their bags to their rooms or the elevator, we could hear it. There was almost no separation from lobby to restaurant and I was confused where one started and the other ended. Didn’t help that we had to wait 2-3 before the hostess arrived at the hostess stand. If not for the great duck tacos, this would’ve been a pretty poor experience.

    Great food, prices were very reasonable. Chef walked by and we complemented him as well. Nice and quiet and able to visit which was very nice. Atmosphere was fabulous and tables were nicely spaced to be able to talk freely. Had the Clarboya side salad and added steak strips to it which was very tender and flavorful. The goat cheese croquette was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    We've now been twice, once for appetizers and a glass of wine, and once for dinner. Food is good, interesting, and expensive. Dinner service was extremely slow (90 minutes until food arrived) and waitress very inattentive. There was a large party, but we were essentially ignored most of the evening.

    Very delicious main dish served for our 40th anniversary that is coming in the new menu--late March 2022. The steak was a melt-in-your-mouth tender cut with delicious crab/lobster juices. It was one of the most delicious meals we have had in Lubbock. The visit from the chef was a kindness and the chocolate cake wedge with coffee topped the evening meal. Very good! Highly recommended.

    The ambiance was of a hotel restaurant not a 5 star restaurant. 20 feet from the hotel front door and very drafty. tired and weary travelers coming and going throughout our meal. Food seemed to have been prepared, old, microwaved and not fresh. ( 8pm reservation). Prices are unfair to the consumer given the fact of the limited selections and poor ingredients. $30 for a chicken thigh/ drumstick on a plain mashed potato. My adobo steak was raw and burnt at the same time. I had asked for medium. Our waitress was nice and friendly. I myself would have raised concern with the manager but my wife and daughter are very forgiving. Manager no where to be seen. My family and I will not be returning.
