Food was delicious as always. Favorite item is the grilled oysters but the scallop soup and octopus dish are fantastic. Great wine list with knowledgeable staff. Service is always great as well.

Our first time and we’ll definitely be back! Nice menu with many choices but not too many. Octopus was outstanding as was red snapper. Excellent veggie options.

Fantastic experience, overall. We dined at Clark's for a family "goodbye" meal. The dining room manages to be both bright and energetic and cozy. We ordered several items for the table and shared them. These items won rave reviews: mussels and clams in white wine sauce, Bay scallop pozole soup (amazing flavor and great value), and cheesy grits (soooo rich and decadent). The baked oysters were also delicious... alas, one of the oysters tasted off. The bay seasoning and buttery parm crust on these were exceptionally tasty. Finally, we ended our meal with the Key Lime tart. The lime curd was delicious (prefect level of sweetness, tartness, and density); the pastry crust had good texture, but needed a little salt and/or sugar. We loved that bread came with many of the menu items so that the seafood broths could be sopped up. The only moderate negatives of our dining experience were that our server's energy was a little low, and the music's volume was a little high.

It took 15 minutes to get served a drink. Good food. They seem carried away with their popularity. Like you should be honored by being there.

Great new Aspen restaurant. A bit pricey for most, but this is Aspen! Best shoestring fries with rosemary. Shrimp toast delicious as well as lobster roll and great hamburger, too.

The oysters were as fresh as I have ever had. The 5th and 6th should be available at a discount on the menu.o

Great seafood - the fresh catch of the day, other fish meals, mussels, clams, crudite was excellent. The lobsta roll was just alright. The food and drinks are a bit pricey, but considering the great ambiance and high quality of the service and food overall, well it is Aspen.

We have dined there times at Clark's. The food is great - a pleasant surprise from the usual fish and seafood in Aspen - but the noise level is very high. If you are looking for a dinner with friends and value conversation, you might think twice about Clark's.

Food was very good but service was spotty and inattentive . It was a busy night and perhaps stretched thin but when the forth dinner guest drink arrives 30 minutes after threat of the table and two reminders... a sign of things to come

That said, we’ll go back

Very nice feeling, and high quality ingrediends beautifully prepared. However, the noise level is intolerable. We will not return until the off season to see if a smaller crowd, or the addition of noise inhibitors make a significnt difference.

Good looking place...doesn’t look like aspen....more like Nantucket but that isn’t a criticism. Food delicious and de,ivered by young energetic and trying staff. On reservation they asked if it was a special occasion...which it was...gave specifics on that and then retold them as we arrived...didn’t expect anything extra...and that is what we got...nothing extra...that’s ok....but then why ask.

Restaurant opened on a Monday, we had lunch there Wednesday, and there was no doubt they had prepared beautifully in all respects-- service, food, and ambiance. Oysters and lobster roll are outstanding as is the bibb lettuce salad. We have been back twice in a week, and they are hitting the home run consistently. DO NOT MISS IF YOU ARE IN ASPEN.
