Went on a Friday evening and it was fairly busy. We all had lobster which was cooked to perfection. The Tonka bean dessert was especially good. Great service and I would thoroughly recommend.

Friendly greeting on arrival. Seating area split on two areas. We sat on upper level.
Food and wine of good quality and service was very good. A very pleasant evening spent. Total bill for two meals plus wine, just over £80.00.
Well worth a visit.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. I’ve only given a three for ambience because we were the only ones in there but it didn’t spoil it at all, like the chef said we had private dining. We booked our return visit before we left.

You are met by lovely, enthusiastic staff with a warm smiley welcome which is always a great start. Drinks are offered quickly and there is a great selection. Menus arrive promptly and the range is wonderful. Mouth watering and innovative with out the pretentiousness of many restaurants serving this high standard of food. My Mother always taught me that you taste with your eyes first, the presentation is second to none, and each and every dish is a creative mix of flavours which do not disappoint. This is a restaurant that not just Scarborough but Yorkshire should be very proud of and can't wait to go back

My son and myself had a lovely evening at Clark's restaurant as a Mother's Day eve. Staff were very nice, friendly, welcoming and attentive. Foods were nicely presented - I especially enjoyed starters - oyster & venison satay with scrumptious peanut sauce. I didn't drink as I had to drive but the staff lady recommended non-alcohol gin - what a great idea it was and tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed the night - thank you so much!

Hi there.
Our first time at your restaurant and it was a very good time indeed.
Our meals were delicious and the presentation was superb.
Service was exemplary with plenty of time given to choose both what to eat and what to drink.
The only thing that (very) slightly spoilt things was that the family group who were eating on the upper level beside ourselves were so loud that I had to remove my hearing aids.
That, however, did not marred our evening to any great extent.
We both look forward to returning on our next visit to Scarborough.
Best wishes to yourself and your staff.

what a lovely evening meal I had on my birthday, lovely staff very friendly and the chef comes to see you after the meal to get your verdicts, I have to say the tapas were very well presented and the steak & lobster were cooked to a very high quality, all I can say about the deserts is you only can manage one, all in all the flavours produced were a credit to the staff,
thankyou for a lovely evening.

The restaurant had no heating on, I was sat next to a radiator that was off! Not so much choice as three of the main dishes were off! Very mediocre. Not in a rush to go back until the weather gets warmer!

Great food, great service, thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Only comment I would make is that there wasn't much room for the seating round our table and I struggled to get in and out of the chair. My wife's chair was right by the front door and when people opened the door they had to hold it to stop it hitting my wife's chair. Fully understand that it's not the largest restaurant in the world and it didn't detract from the food and service.

Chairs were very uncomfortable food was very good but should of had vegetables with the steak and chips
No olive oil or mustard
The best of both which was half a lobster and steak was far too expensive

Second visit to Clarke's not quite as busy, however we go for the food and the cooking and that was as good as ever. The décor is a little sparse, but I'm not eating that! Will definitely go again as its as good if not better than anywhere else in Scarborough

Unearthed a gem here that we did not know about. How had we missed it before? They have pretty much got everything right. The food is innovative and excellently cooked with a varied menu choice. The only problem we had was sharing the tapas starters, I could have eaten more! The welcome and service is as good as it gets, friendly and helpful. We tried the gins and wine list, all well priced. Great atmosphere inside, was almost full, which gave a nice ambiance while remaining quiet enough for a special evening. One of the best I have visited in ages. Don’t miss out!

We had our staff Xmas meal there on the 22nd December 18, the staff are warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them, I had the steak with peppercorn sauce, the steak fell apart with ease, it was beautifully cooked and very tasty, there was laughter from all inside and staff even took part in having a joke with us, we've been there 3 times before and we've left with smiles on our faces and a happy tummy, can't recommend this place highly enough, top food by a great chef and staff you would want working for you, well done Clarke's keep doing what your doing

We went for lunch this week hoping to try the tapas but it was a festive menu on offer instead. However we weren't disappointed as we fancied every dish on the menu as well as the specials. Ended up having three courses and each one was lovely, we will most definitely be back again in the new year.
