Clement seamlessly blends an elegantly modern aesthetic with American cuisine. Located in the Forbes Five Star-rated Peninsula New York hotel, Clement overlooks bustling Fifth Avenue. Designed by the international award-winning design firm, Yabu Pushelberg, the restaurant feels like a quintessential New York home, with different rooms that cater to a range of moods, desires and occasions. Private and semi-private dining areas are available.

Adjacent to Clement, The Bar offers a bewitching menu of suggested and made-to-order cocktails, a selection of wines and champagnes available by the glass, and small plates echoing the Clement menu with a touch of an Asian influence as a nod to the hotel company’s heritage.

The food was quite good, the seating hostess was charming, the servers were hyper efficient, and the gentleman who appeared at the end of our entrée course [not quite sure who he was, presumably a manager] was exceptionally nice. The waiter, however, was condescending and rushed us to make our food order--though we had said we'd like to have drinks [therefore driving up the cost AND the tip]--on his second attempt to get our food order [before the drinks arrived], he noted they would be busy and strongly encouraged us to order. We felt that we were treated by him as unenlightened tourists [though everyone should be treated with respect], when, in fact, we are locals who chose to use a TravelZoo voucher as an early reservation convenience to try the Clement before taking our subscription seats at the City Center for an Encores! production.

Wife and I went to the prix fixe Valentines dinner. It was our first visit. Service was a bit sketchy. One guy seemed to know what was going on, but not everyone. No one really explained what was being done, just setting things down and taking off. My steak was great, but my wife's fish was cold to room temp. They took it back to heat it up, but then just the outside was warm and still cold inside. For the price, we were disappointed.

Amazing service with exceptional attention to detail. Marco looked after us like his our family. He made excellent suggestions for our wine choices with each course and each was perfect for the dishes we ate. Everything about the Clement was perfect for us an made a special night even more so. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting New York.

The food is always exquisite. The wine is always costly. The service is generally impeccable but this last time it was not as good as usual due to a language barrier.

We went for restaurant week for lunch and loved the ambiance, service and food. The soup and ceviche were both very good . My son loved the chicken and I loved my salmon. Presentation was excellent and we felt very comfortable in the large spacious room. A very nice choice in midtown.

We visited this restaurant during the restaurant week. It was our anniversary. I requested window seats but we were seated near window seats. It’s fine. The appetizers were good, except the salad had so much dressings on it, and endives were not that fresh. The chicken was bad and the portion was too small, even considering this is a hotel restaurant, and the worse thing is that the chicken was overcooked and thin. I ordered the salmon, which was okay, nothing so good nothing so bad. The desserts were so much better compared to appetizers and the main dishes, but still it was just okay.
Still, I liked the place as everyone was so nice, and I liked the ambience. We don’t expect to much on $39 dishes, yet if they could improve a little bit, it would be much nicer.

Went for restaurant week lunch. Restaurant is very handsome. Much better than photos. Choice of breads terrific and plentiful. Ceviche appetizer was delicious with unusual accompaniments. The plating was lovely. The main course salmon disappointed. I asked for medium rare and my friend, rare. Both came out well done. We should have but didn’t send it back. We will go back because other than the overcooked salmon it was a lovely experience.

This is an absolutely outstanding restaurant. Great food, excellent service, lovely room, quiet, superb location on 5th avenue. What else can you ask for? Yeah, you could ask that it would be cheap, but obviously a restaurant of a world famous 5-star hotel will not be cheap. So go and enjoy!

I attended during Restaurant Week, so it was very reasonable. And when I looked at all the competing options, it was clear that the food offerings at Clement were vastly better than at other places.

My friend and I were looking forward to this restaurant for our annual splurge. The menu was pricey, however the food was disappointing because it was not cooked to order, rather, it appears to have been pre-cooked and reheated. As a cook myself, I know when something is cooked to order, and the juices are still sizzling from the food. in the case of both entrees, this was not the case.

Lunch at Clement with a friend on 12/26/19 was delightful. The moment we entered the Peninsula Hotel we were surrounded by a cheerful, festive atmosphere. The restaurant in this hotel is the perfect setting for an elegant meal, with tables that are nicely spaced, which enables good conversation. The food is excellent in flavor and presentation. The wait staff is attentive and pleasant.

Maybe not for Christmas dinner, I don’t know what the restaurant is normally like for A La Carte. For Christmas dinner there was a seafood and salad buffet and the seafood was lovely. The main was very small but perfectly formed and dessert was another buffet, if not a little underwhelming. It just wasn’t worth $715, not because $715 is a heavy price tag, but because it didn’t ‘wow’ me.
