Tried Clarks after the show at Esther's Follies because we love seafood and they're open late. Nice decor, intimate and modern. They have Anchor Steam beer on tap, a great beer with seafood. We started with the NE clam chowder. A bit spicy, but really good and tasty. I had the linguine and clams. It was okay. Loaded with very... More

Stopped by for happy hour. Had two great martini's at great prices. It was fun to sit at the outside bar and people watch.

Amazing, great selection of both East Coast and West Coast Oysters. Service is excellent, attentive. I go there weekly for the oysters, but all the appetizers and seafood are excellent. Really great lobster rolls. Very accommodating manners.

The oysters are great.Service very prompt and accommodating. Happy hour is actually a great time to grab a few oysters (still $$$0 and cocktails (well priced). Make reservations - even when the town is dead this place is booked early and late.

Clark's offers a very high level of quality in everything they serve. The cocktails are handcrafted and delicious, wine list exceptional, and everything from the bread service to desserts are spectacular. The lobster roll rivals anything in New England. The ceviche plate, oysters, potato frites, and fresh grilled fish offerings are perfectly balanced, served with well thought out condiments. Simply... More

In spite of the excellent reviews we were a bit disappointed. It is a small place in a nice looking house with a few tables inside and a few outside. We had a drink outside but it was noisy with the street traffic and dinner inside. The inside is poorly designed. The main tables are on a rectangular small area,... More

I enjoy meeting my girlfriends here after work or having good business meetings here. The food is delicious and the service impeccable. You can even hear yourself think/talk. I have never had a dish or appetizer that I did not love. Shrimp is one of my favorites and their martinis are fab.

Went for lunch and sat outdoors. The waiter was efficient but not very friendly. Sampled three different oysters, they were not the best I've ever had. The tuna sandwich was plentiful but not very tasty. The best part of lunch was the string fries with fresh rosemary. It's a bit pricey for the quality of the food. Instead try Perla's... More
