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 a great time and the food was wonderful. However, we were seated by the windows and close to the door and we were all very chilly the whole dinner. This made it a bit difficult to enjoy more. I had to put my coat over my lap before our entrée course as I couldn't keep warm.

I was excited to return to this restaurant as we'd been here several years ago. I was disappointed to find relatively bland food. There's a lot better that Portland offers.

Great appies, dinner, drinks, and desert. Will visit again soon.

Loved the waiter, Steve! The food was good and we never felt rushed. We were meeting a friend from Corvallis who had never been there and she loved it!

Worst dining experience ever! Cut of steak had more connective tissue than beef. Scallop was obviously frozen and had a horrible taste. Sides were a bland joke. Took 1hr just to get our starter. Never again!

Busy but expected on Valentine's Day. Took half hour to get seated after our reservation time. Loved the red rose petals on the table. Food was good. Loved the heart shaped cookie.

Our 7pm reservation wasn’t available until 7:30. Entryway was packed with customers also having to wait for their tables. Hostess was not particularly friendly.

Our server was nice but it took a while to get our first drink. The food was good. Not amazing, but appropriately good.

We had the “pleasure” of witnessing the hostess come through on multiple occasions to size up tables and see when new ones would be free. Felt like we were being pushed through.

Granted it’s Valentine’s Day, but the set menu price plus drinks was roughly double what a respectable restaurant in Portland would fetch. Will not be returning.

Went for Valentine's day and they were a half hour behind schedule. The host up front was not very personable. We asked to wait at the bar and were told that was not an option, but we could "go to the bar across the street and wait." The Manager (owner?) was very thoughtful and brought everyone waiting- there were quite a few parties filling the entrance - drinks while we all waited... Once seated our server was exceptional and the food was delicious! Would highly recommend ClarkLewis, just be prepared for a wait if you try to go on a holiday.

I really enjoyed Clarklewis. The food was good, the drinks were strong, and the service was very attentive, even with it being a holiday. My only complaint was we got the worst table in the house, a back corner spot where they leave the door to the building open to vent the smoke out. It was a great I really experience though, and I would recommend!

I was disappointed that when i booked the reservation there was no mention of a fixed menu for Valentines Day. A bit disappointing to take my husband who had never been and not get to share the full menu. The service was great but i wouldn't go back for a special occasion again.

Every bite was terrific from the bread and butter to the beet salad and salmon entrée to dessert. Even the martini was delicious!

Love the smell of the wood fired grill upon first walking in to the restaurant. Simple but well-executed menu. Great cocktails and wines by the glass. Wood-fired veggies are a nice starter or a side along with an entree. My King Salmon with parsnips and sun chokes was perfect. When all is said and done, prices can be on the high side; but, overall, it's all worth it.

Great menu selection for every diet preference. The ambiance was perfect for a team dinner.

Great meal. Excellent service. The staff was top notch and all advice for wine, meal, portions, was spot on. One of the best meals we have had in Portland.
