Great food in modern/industrial style location. The seating was well spaced apart with lots of ventilation.
I have to admit, clarklewis fell off of our radar for a couple of years but when looking for a spot to spend our anniversary I thought it was time to check back in and I'm so glad we did. The cocktails were beyond our imagination or expectations. I had a balsamic rhubarb gin (although I replaced with vodka) concoction that was unbelievably satisfying and my husband had a reposado cocktail before switching over to an Old Fashioned, he was super happy with both. Oysters, brussel sprouts, saffron linguine, fennel crusted halibut...all spectacular. Dessert was a tiramisu I won't soon forget. Ambiance is a great (albeit a little dark in the back corner), the open garage doors and tall ceilings gave us the extra reassurance we needed to feel safe dining out during COVID. Our server couldn't have been nicer, attentive with gentle check-ins. Overall, a really lovely night. Thank you clarklewis, we won't wait so long to return again.
Some flaws with the service and although some of the dishes were outstanding others underachieved when it could have been easily rectified before got to my table. Overall I'll go again. I just had a very high expectation.
Hi vvega96, We regret and are sorry you didn't have a great time. As you can see from the majority of our reviews we get it right more often than not. I will look into your experience to hopefully find ways to be better in the future. We are challenged with changing capacity due to Covid restrictions. Multnomah County went down to 25% again and it may be that the staff were spread thin that night between outdoor and indoor tables. Again, I'll look into it. Hope to see you again. Thank you.
Came here last minute, was shown to the back patio and felt duped, unlike what the host said it was not better than the front patio. Service was good thru the appetizers but my husband ran out of water (med-large glass) twice and would’ve ordered more cocktails but no server (it was his birthday). Overall started ok and left disappointed. Would’ve tipped less if there was no service charge. Good food though.
Good Morning Anonymous, Thank you for joining us and your review. I apologize that your service was not as expected. We are fortunate to have multiple outdoor spaces during these times of Covid-19 restrictions and reduced capacity, but it does cause us to be spread out and spread thin sometimes. I will look into your experience and find out how we could have been better. Please let us know the next time you are in. We will take great care to turn this around and make you a fan.
Very nice birthday dinner. The beet salad with pickled raisins was delicious!
Service was amazing as well as the food.
Had not been here in years. Excellent in all areas - service, food, ambiance and safety protocols. Surprised at the price, even with the 15% service charge which we were happy to pay ( and add to, to keep this Portland gem going). We shall return soon!
We went for a special occasion. The food was great, a bit loud ... our service was mixed. Initially slow and they seemed overwhelmed - very attentive to some tables and not others... and the subsequently rushed at the end of our seating. Great food, experience lacked.
We were very impressed with everything we ordered, the scallops were delicious with bacon, and a yummy sauce, the pea salad was interesting and very flavorful but the best was the saffron lemon crab linguine, it was amazing,such incredible flavor. The beef tenderloin was the best steak I have had in years, perfectly seared, with the perfect char and saltiness. The Covid-19 safety guidelines were clear and they added a 15% gratuity to the check that was outlined on the menu which I appreciated. The service was perfect! Best meal for our anniversary dinner.
love this restaurant for a fun vibe and delicious and creative food. Service is stellar!
Great food and beverage selection and helpful charming servers.
Outstanding experience as usual. Excellent service, super friendly staff, and the most amazing food! Scallops were cooked to perfection and their pastas are amazing as always!
food was salty, service was slow but kind.
Really enjoyed the experience overall. Fresh and high quality food. Bravo!
I love this restaurant. The food is really interesting but delicious! Love the atmosphere!
Food was delicious! Waiter was not too overbearing, but was there when we needed him. The dessert options were delicious!!! They charge L’s 15% gratuity off the total and was not sure if that was the tip, or if we had to tip even more on top of that. We ended up tipping even after the 15% was added to my check but it was a bit more confusing than it had to be. Overall really enjoyed the experience.
Excellent. Surprised we hadn’t been there before. Will definitely be back.
I enjoyed a my inside dining experience here! I especially appreciate the FOH manager reseating me upon request. My server ( Jonathan, I believe) was very knowledgeable about the menu and enjoyed discussing wines- obviously a keen interest of his.
Nice evening... Thanks Clark Lewis!
The food was great but the service was slow. Overall the service did not take away from the amazing experience.
Great food for the value
Birthday! We had a wonderful
Dinner and enjoyed the food and service!!
Cute place with excellent food
Delicious food, excellent service, and felt very safe with their adherence to safety guidelines.
Thank you for the nice comments! Looking forward to your next visit!
It was fine, the food was good and the noise wasn’t so bad since we went for an early dinner. Its a good restaurant for every day or a family dinner but I dont see this as a good date or special occasion option.
Thank you for the review NadineM. It sounds like your service could have been better. How could we have been better? I'm sorry you didn't have an amazing time. I will look into your experience and server. We hope to get another opportunity to impress you. Let us know when you are in next. Take care.
I hadn’t been there since the menu was quite minimal but lovely-back in 2005. We had an excellent meal and experience.
Thank you MarionN! We hope to see you again soon :)
We have bee here more than anywhere during the pandemic and it has been consistently great. Good menu options, excellent food and service. However, what is also consistent is that they pour you about 1/2 of what I would consider an actual glass of wine at other establishments. So if you are a wine drinker you should order your own bottle or be frustrated with a $14 tiny pour.
Hello Teresaww! Thank you for the nice review. Because we use larger Riedel glassware (Burgundy glasses for Pinot Noir and Bordeaux glassware for most others), it can appear you are not getting a reasonable pour. We can assure you that you are getting a measured pour. It may be at another restaurant, you are receiving smaller, narrower glassware which perceptively seems like more. We do appreciate the feedback. The manager is ensuring all bartenders are measuring their pours as is standard. Thx!
Food is great, atmosphere and location are great and everything was super COVID safe. Our waiter was a bit stiff and not very personable though.
Thank you EmilyG! I spoke with the manager about service style and he will review with your server. See you again soon we hope.
Excellent "covid" dining experience. Service and food were high quality and we had a very safe and enjoyable evening out.
Thank you EmilyH! Looking forward to your next visit.
First time out in a restaurant following the re-opening of restaurants during the pandemic and I felt safe and comfortable. The service was high touch without being invasive. Always a pleasure dining at Clark Lewis!
Thank you ChrisR! We look forward to your return.
Food was great, service a bit slow and very casual. Prices high for casual service. It’s very dark. A bit cold. Overall good, but value was a bit under whealming.
Thank you SkyR! We appreciate your suggestions and feedback. Hope to see you again.
It was so great to dine out. Food there is always good
Thank you ChristineJ! Looking forward to your next visit!
Everything was fantastic
Food was undercooked and not good for the price
wonderful food. wonderful service. i just wish we'd saved room for dessert.
Thank you Porter! See you back soon we hope! :)
great first outing after reopening! great food and service
Thank you InnaS!
Josh (our waiter) was fantastic! He went above and beyond to make sure we were 100% satisfied with our experience. Food was excellent as always. We have dined here multiple times before covid and they have not missed a beat. Highly recommend a visit if you haven’t eaten here before.
Thank you! Josh has been in the family for a very long time. He is a great server! Guests love him. See you soon!
The manager apologized before seating us because it was just their second day reopening since December. They were two servers short that night, and possibly delaying service. However, the pacing of the meal was perfect, the quality outstanding. My spouse and I both noticed the servers helping each other to ensure no water glass was left unfilled, no used dishes left on the table too long.
This was an OUTSTANDING experience!
BrandonS, Thank you for the glowing review! So glad we made you happy.
Great food and service
Thank you PearlPDX! Hope to see you again soon.
