A "neighborhood gem" in Lake Oswego, this "excellent" New American is beloved by locals for its upmarket cuisine (think lobster risotto and free-range chicken) offered with Pacific NW wines at a "good price"; quality service and setting qualify it as one of "the best" in the area - ZAGAT

The food was great. Nice menu, great dessert. They were very busy, and one had to be patient.

Solid fine dining spot in Lake O. Food always is good, and I like their wine list. We had a great waitress.

We’ve been to Clarke’s several times over the years and it’s almost always been top notch. We were recently there with friends on NY Eve and overall had an enjoyable dinner. The wait staff were very nice as usual and it was quiet enough to have a conversation without having to shout, which is a major plus. The only downside was that the special NY Eve menu was very hard to find on their web site, and we were all taken off guard by the limited meal choices (it also seemed spendier than usual). “Prix fixe” menus are fairly common on holidays, and in retrospect perhaps we should have asked about this beforehand. Nevertheless, we’d suggest that in future Clarke’s make special holiday menus like this much more obvious on their web site, e.g., by prominantly noting this on the home page (not just burying it at the bottom of the hard to spot “Other Menus” link), and also making it a point advise customers when they call to confirm their reservations.

My family went for my mother’s birthday. Scallops were raw, burger was dry, server was a snob. This place used to be great— but it has tanked in recent years. Terrible food, sorely overpriced. Will not return.

We did not have a good experience. Service was awful. Food was only mediocre, especially for the price. Maybe I'm just not accustomed to 3 scallops for $32. Maybe I'm also not accustomed to waiting 45 min to place an order.

We reserved the private dining room for 12 of us. It was quiet, the service was excellent and the food at Clarke's is always innovative and top notch. It is my favorite neighborhood fine dining place and I was happy they could accommodate our group for our holiday celebration.

Went on a Tuesday evening and there were people in the restaurant, however it was still quiet enough to have a nice conversation (which we loved). The wait staff was attentive, but not overbearing, and the service came quickly and was timely. Absolutely delicious food, we will be back.

Consistent and delicious. Have been here several times now and always pleased with the menu selections. Likely Lake Oswego's best restaurant.
