A bustling eatery in the Central Eastside industrial neighborhood serving Italian-inspired, local, organic, seasonal, sustainable fare. The large oak-burning hearth rotisserie grill is the cornerstone of the large open kitchen. Clarklewis has helped define Portland as a food mecca since 2004 as a founder of our local farm-to-table sensibility. Reservations are recommended. Large groups can be accommodated in our private space, called The Kindling Room.

We had friends visiting from out of town. The dinner was to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Autumn was great. The food was outstanding.

Sometimes farm to table restaurants try too hard to be innovative. I had to look hard to find something on the menu that wasn't off-putting. The spaghetti with lamb Bolognese was wonderful. I managed to avoid lentils, kale, squid ink, and a variety of accompaniments which were trendy and probably well prepared but not necessary.

We had never been to ClarkLewis for dinner before. The waiter was amiable, helpful, and attentive, but not intrusive. He explained the options well and when they arrived at the table they looked tasty and tasted delicious. From the salad to the main courses to the dessert, the dining experience was terrific.

Great ambiance and atmosphere. The food was excellent. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly! They made a great cappuccino with my olive oil cake, which was on the savory side, not too sweet at all!

We had an amazing meal- the chef's special. He selected 10 different dishes for the great value of $60 a person. If u do this chef's selection, u shouldn't be in a rush, as it takes awhile to prepare that much food. The drinks were amazing as well. Overall an amazing meal.

We had a delightful dinner to round out a vacation week in Oregon. The leg of lamb was perfect!

The only issue I had with clarklewis is that they have a subpar ventilation system so when I left on nye I smelled like a campfire for the rest of the night, which was gross. Their preset menu was great, but my ravioli dish was not, and nobody asked how our meals were or I would have asked for something else. Good atmosphere, food, and service overall though especially for New Years Eve!!

Clarklewis use to be a top 10 restaurant in Portland and a go to spot for business dinners, anniversaries and date nights. We had our annual family Christmas dinner this year and were a bit disappointed. The menu selection was decent, but when you’re paying this high of prices, expectations are also high and they did not match up. The wine selection was great and we enjoyed our cocktails. The cheese plate as well was nice, as well as the fresh bread. The big miss was the 32oz Tamahawk steak we ordered to share at $135, it was recommended medium rare, we requested medium. What came was well done and quite honestly for the price, the huge bone took away a lot of the actual meat, so the price-value was not close. Our server was nice, the ambience festive with wonderful Christmas trees and lights. They need to update a few things in order for us to come back — the Portland restaurant scene is competitive and there are too many better options.
