My wife and I went to Clarke's last weekend. We had read that there is a new chef and we were excited to give it a try. I was pleased to see that they were very busy. The service was very good as usual and...More

My husband and I went to Clarkes for dinner and both were delicious, both seafood, and were the best we have had in quite a while. My only complaint was the service was a bit slow; however, the server was very gracious and nice.

Hadn't been here in many years. Restaurant is small and intimate. A rare one that actually has sound absorption in the dining room so you can hear people at your table! The salads we had were excellent (beet salad and field greens salad). We both...More

My wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary and we enjoyed the experience. The food (I had the duck soup, she had the Caesar salad and we both had the lobster and prawn risotto) was exceptional. The rice was cooked perfectly and there...More

Undercooked and mediocre sturgeon. Undercooked and mediocre beef tenderloin. Caesar salad was drenched in dressing. Slow and uninspired service. I think their cooking is fading fast. Haven't visited in over a year and it was just a big disappointment.

I finally made it to this oft-touted restaurant, but it was most disappointing. Nearly empty; vague service: the server kept disappearing to the back room and delivered requested items reluctantly. It was a bright spring day, but dark and dreary inside. Will not return.

This has long been the best (only?) fine dining restaurant in Lake Oswego. Our recent visit, after a year's gap, was no disappointment, from pre-dinner cocktails, through the signature and fabulous risotto and the attentive yet unobtrusive service to coffee.

Clarke's is one of our favorite restaurants, and now we have yet another reason to go. During March, Clarke's is participating in a city-wide restaurant month and is featuring a $29.00 prix fixe 3-course menu. We tried the goat cheese souffle (the other choice is...More

Small and charming great for a date night, not for families or children. The food was wonderful, staff a little slow but not a problem for us

We have 4 people coming in March, and would like to get the one bedroom suite, but concerned about the sofa bed. Our adult and preteen daughter would be sharing the bed for 1 week. Is there a roll away to get for extra comfort?
