Clarklewis opened in 2003 as part of the new wave of farm to table restaurants Portland has fostered since then. We went several times when it was new, but had not been back in a number of years with all the other newer good choices...More

Went with a friend who works at OMSI for lunch. Interesting menu with unique selections. I had the green tomato salad. Server was very good and ambience excellent. It’s out of the way but worth the effort.

Food was fresh and good. Enjoyed the burger, which had a nice smoke flavor. Salads were good as well. Nice ambience and location. Prices were reasonable. Bread was really good! Good spot for a business lunch.

Excellent inner central SE location, great concept, well thought out menu, excellent execution of dishes, superior service, perfectly Portland charm. Enjoy a just about perfect happy hour menu in this industrial chic, cozy and charming former warehouse! Clark and Lewis would approve of their namesake!
