In short: the lamb was excellent. Snapper was over cooked and dried to jerky-like consistency. We had the unfortunate experience of sitting in a room near 9 of the loudest, most crude people to inhabit this earth. We mentioned the noise to our server, but they kept serving the loud table vino-which caused them to become louder still; all this despite our having to plug our ears to avoid ruptured ear drums. I have never spent an evening at dinner in a noisier environment, even at the Chuck E Cheese with toddlers. Management did absolutely nothing and since it was Weds, 25% off their over priced wines, there were no other tables to move to. When we left our ears felt like we just listened to a rock concert and we are in our 30s, so we are not old people making a complaint, this was vulgar and disrespectful. DO NOT dine at Clarkes if you want a peaceful, romantic or good meal. Not to mention their wine list is over rated and over priced. This was a huge disappointment. We will NEVER return and warn all of our other Lake Oswego friends, family and neighbors of the same.
Pros: We won't be going back, nor will our wine group
Cons: noise, management, price and lack of class
