For a high-end restaurant, it was not a memorable meal.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Town!!Great Restaurant and you can always count on a very attentive and friendly staff.
Ty does a great job.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful restaurantMy second visit to this eastside gem and it was every bit as good as the first visit. Fun to watch the cooks in the open kitchen with the woodfired oven. The bartender was amazing and the wait staff could not have been any better...very attentive and even laughed out our lame jokes. Would highly recommend this restaurant6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in a nice atmosphereModern atmosphere, good service and quality of food.

Clarklewis fit the description perfectly.
The staff was great, helping pair our meals and wines, very attentive.
Expect to spend for all the luxury, before the alcohol, it'll run $30-$50 per plate.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgourmet food at reasonable pricesClarklewis has some of the best food in Portland. While it isn't cheap by any means, it was reasonably priced considering the food and service. I went with two of my sisters and we each ordered the tasting menu at $55 each.ou By doing so, we each got to taste many different menu items. Each dish had a unique flavor and was plated beautifully. Our agreed upon favorites were morrells in veal sauce, the lamb paparadelle, and the amazing purple carrot soup. I liked the chicken with grits a lot. My sisters loved the halibut. ALL of the desserts were to die for. The wine list was very good and not over priced. All in all, it was a delightful experience.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOrder the truffle oil pastaGreat food and service. I love the large, open kitchen and beautiful bar on the opposite end of the restaurant. I really enjoyed the braised lamb pasta and burrata appetizer. However, my daughter ordered fettuccine with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil sauce. I had a couples bites and I've been dreaming about that truffle sauce it was soooo good. We will definitely go back5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA great find!If you want an excellent meal with superb service go to clarklewis. Our meals, from the starters to dessert were delicious. It is a great place to dine with friends or business.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisyWonderful but not someplace to go for a quiet romantic dinner. Lunch was noisy so I would think the evening crowd would be the same. Good lunch place though.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely EveningMy wife and I had a great anniversary dinner at clarklewis. We went with the tasting menu since everything looked fantastic. We were not disappointed. Our waitress was courteous and knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic wine recommendation. The servers who brought out the food were a bit less knowledgeable about the individual servings they were providing which prompted us to ask for a menu to read through the descriptions again. The vibe was lively as the restaurant was full with a large group sitting near us. We also had a young couple with children on the other side. We understood their struggles. Overall a great experience4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy our diningWe always enjoy our dining experiences at ClarkLewis. The atmosphere, service and food are wonderful. However, this last time, my entree was not up to the quality standards of previous experiences. I ordered the pork collar and it was very tough.....a bit overcooked, I think. It was disappointing. The appetizers, salad and the other entrees were very good and the rice pudding and cookies were outstanding. We will return.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and wine were fantastic.Food and wine were fantastic. Our second visit and not our last.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. Cool decorVery good food. Cool decor in an old warehouse. An enjoyable evening.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMClark Lewis was great. TheClark Lewis was great. The service was excellent; the staff was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable and on top of it. I also really liked the ambiance of this restaurant; the wood, lighting and openness made it feel really warm and inviting. I was expecting it to feel stuffy and uppity but it wasn't. The portions were larger than I expected which was perfect for sharing. Everything was flavorful and interesting. I would like to go back in the summer when the garage doors are raised up so we can enjoy the summer evenings.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was spotty andThe service was spotty and the food, while excellent, was overpriced for Portland.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding &The food was outstanding & the service was excellant.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. The hardFood was excellent. The hard surfaces everywhere (previously some sort of warehouse) made it a bit noisy and somewhat difficult to carry on a conversation. Perhaps they could use more wait staff as our waiter didn't make it around as often as we would have liked. Nevertheless, we will come back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMREALLY NEED MORE PARKING.REALLY NEED MORE PARKING. WE ARRIVED EARLY FOR RESERVATION, ENDED UP LATE DRIVING AROUND AND AROUND. DON'T MIND WALKING ON A SUNNY DAY, BUT COLD/RAINY 3-4 BLOCK WALK FOR A BIZ LUNCH IS NOT INVITING ME BACK . FOOD GOOD SOURCING ADN PREP GOOD, SERVICE GREAT !4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a very nice lunch, althoughHad a very nice lunch, although a bit on the pricey side. Waiter was very attentive. Good menu selections and the place was pretty packed.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty and small with a earthy vibeWe went out of our box a little before heading to the Schnitz for a comedy show. A very elegant farm to table restaurant, using local and home grown ingredients. Wine was good and the servers were very timely and knowledgeable (they had to be because I didn't know what 1/3 of their listed ingredients were). Appetizers and dinner were very small portions, but presented well. The flavors were wonderful and we cleaned all our plates, but just kept wondering where the "rest" was ... we did not allow enough time for dessert, but if I remember right, it wasn't that great of a dessert menu either.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting menu. TerrificInteresting menu. Terrific food, great service. The noise was a bit overwhelming though.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took friends from out ofWe took friends from out of town and had a wonderful meal. We tried the menu sampler for $55 each, it was excellent. The service was a little slow between courses. We were having so much fun it didn't really matter but it was noticeable.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was spectacular -The food was spectacular - the wine selection not so much. The cocktails were different and delicious- a reflection of the original and creative dinner offerings! A great experience all around. I highly recommend the sampler menu .3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat venue with special aura.Great venue with special aura. Guest from out-of-town were impressed with venue.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing DinnerI've been here several times and always recommend it to coworkers who are in town and are looking for a great place to eat. I've never gotten anything but the tasting menu and I have to recommend it to anyone who tries this restaurant. And unlike other places, they actually catered the tasting menu to our friends dietary restrictions, which was a nice surprise. It's not in the best location for walking about afterwards, but it's close enough that it's not inconvenient for date nights. Happy hour is really good as well.
