Myself and three friends dined at Clarks last night. The ambience was good, food was excellent, well presented although side dishes were expensive for the amount of food. Desserts were also delicious. We were advised we could bring our own wine which we did but the corkage charge was $32 for the four of us which we found to be excessive. There was no mention of corkage price on the menu and admittedly we should have asked. They also charged for three side dishes as opposed to two and I have noticed this happens a lot in restaurants in Perth- one extra coffee, one extra glass of wine- so it is always worth checking the bill. When we questioned the corkage charge there was no way the manager was going to be more accommodating. There are plenty restaurants in Perth which deliver as good food, Preggo's e.g. which means we shall not be returning to Clarks. Four people taking three different friends there would amount to approx. $1000 and their friends etc. The manager is obviously prepared to loose business. Not good customer service.

Clarke's delivers quality dining and genuine excellence.

This is food prepared and cooked the way it was meant to be and it delivers. Genuine fresh produce dominates the menu and excites the taste buds.

The flavours and presentation work every time and do not disappoint.

Repeat visits are a must and the BYO option is a gem!

We hadn't been to Clarke's for a year and were delighted with the changes in decor, especially the new seats. It had the same cosy feel but with an updated look. It was a cold night when our group,of four visited this restaurant. Once inside the atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. You can still bring your own wine despite it now having a licence, this is a big draw for us.

We had the degustation menu which at $100 per person was money well spent. The food is exceptional , beautifully plated and a wonderful combination of tastes.

Service was very good, staff attentive. It is probably the best restaurant north of Perth and could certainly compete with the big boys in the city....possibly even winning! Well done, we will be back!

Celebratory Dinner for three - myself, wife and 16yo son - birthdays and wedding anniversary. Restaurant is a bit out of Perth city, but worth the trip. The reservation system was great - easy to negotiate

Winter Thursday night - so was not full. Location ok - not a place with a view - in the middle of a shopping strip. Ambience is good - subdued, no musak (which was great).

Service was very good, Food was excellent - well presented and wonderful tasting.

We had the a la carte.

Entrees were great , but partner was especially impressed with the mushroom dish

For the main course, Wife had the vegetarian- no problems with selection and adaptation to her requirements. Son had the steak - best that he had. I had the fish - very well presented.

Deserts were wonderful. A very good night - to me it was very good value. Well worth the trip. Thank you to all the staff.

We recently dined here as a special treat for hubby's 60th. There were six of us, including two vegetarians and a gluten free requirement! I thought this might be problematic, but the professional staff handled it without a problem. We all had the degustation which was just the right amount of food. Filling, but you finished without feeling overly full. They spaced the courses out very well.

The food was beautifully presented and each dish was explained as it was served. The quality was great, and the dishes were well prepared without being ostentatious. Similarly, the service was professional yet friendly.

Very happy with our special meal here; we hadn't visited Clarke's for a few years prior to this visit, but I know we won't wait so long until the next time now! Don't be put off with the suburban locale. This is definitely a worthy fine dining establishment.
