clarklewis

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.

"I recently had a bad experience at clarklewis, but wanted to give it another try as I had heard from many friends that they have only had good experiences there. I am so glad that I did! The food was outstanding as was the atmosphere and the attention from the restaurant staff. The chef was able to accommodate my food intolerances with out a problem. I will definitely be back!"

"Excellent food, mediocre service.
If you have more than six people in your group, DO NOT ORDER THE TASTING MENU -- just order the whole menu. Sit closer to the kitchen so as not to be harassed by the male bartender.
The Bone Marrow and Tagliatelle Pasta w/Lamb Ragu were the highlights of our dinner. All the desserts were on point as well. Hot dishes were not hot enough. Seemed like too much time between prep and pick-up by waitstaff.
I would go back to this restaurant, but probably not with a big group. It seems like their waitstaff don't have the restaurant service experience to treat guests properly. That was disappointing."

"We were very disappointed to learn that this restaurant is changing from a local tea company that is located a few blocks away (Smith Teamaker) to a product that is being produced in N. Africa (Might Leaf) Why would a Portland based business not support the best quality and locally produced products available? Sad."

"You should include Clarklewis in your Dining Experience in the Portland,s South East Industrial Area - great staff, very welcoming, good atmosphere at this converted loading dock warehouse space in a great location of the now becoming trendy South East Portland Industrial Area - parking was easy and once inside food and atmosphere were great - unhurried style allows you to fully enjoy both the location and the excellent food - naturally for Portland locally sourced and with some imaginative pairings. -
We enjoyed a very special New Year's Eve menu and would return again soon

"My wife and I have been here a several times and have tried to really like Clarklewis. It's okay, the table we were sat in was in the way of the food servers, and made it awkward to have dinner. The dishes were hit and miss, some were extra ordinarily delicious others were over cooked and inconsistent. The wait staff was attentive, but entries took a longtime to come in between dishes. Clarklewis does many things right but has come up short each time."

"Came here with some very good friends for new years eve dinner (4 course prix fixe). It was very delicious. Our water glasses were never empty, our silverware was changed out with every course (even when we didn't put in on the plate) and our server was a total delight. I could have done with a slightly warmer restaurant. I also think they should get better about keeping their plates warm, but this was a small anomaly in a very enjoyable experience."

"The food was fab, but the service was rude ( hostess yelling at someone on the phone, did not acknowledge we were there), attitudey (server said some odd and inappropriate things), and sloppy (drink served in chipped glass, server didn't know what we had gotten from kitchen). Also did not appreciate getting a table stuffed in a corner when the restaurant was only half full all night and there were plenty of other open tables.
Everybody from the kitchen was great - they actually explained each part of the chef's menu brought out. If chef can get his front staff in order, it's a winner. Loved the mushroom bread pudding.

"We ate at clarklewis on New Year's Eve, and our party of 5 had a great time despite the food and overpriced fixed menu. Kale is great, but the chef needs to learn to use other greens. The risotto was probably hand made, but too coarse and not flavorful. The skirt steak was cut too thickly and the accompaniments were uninspired.
The service was very good and our waiter was especially knowledgable about wine and the wine list, always a good sign, but the food as noted, the crowded setting, and ho hum ambience made this a very poor value.
clarklewis needs to tune up its menu before aspiring to the price point they are striving for.
And don't ever use the term prix fixe unless you mean it."
