Cannot believe this restaurant has been in existence for 33 years, and I have never been. What an absolute delight, everything is superb, from the welcome on arrival, the service and the exceptional food. It will not take me 33 years to return.

I've been to Clarke's three times recently – the food, service and ambience have been consistently good each time. But each time my booking via Square Meal has been lost – causing some embarrassment. I've always been found a table but when my guest arrived before me to be told my booking didn't exist…well, that just was embarrassing.
I would certainly recommend Clarke's – but suggest you book your table direct with the restaurant.

I dined at Clarke's on a recent busy evening and was quite disappointed. I go to Clarke's every time my mother comes to town as it is one of her favourite restaurants. We were given a table downstairs, at the bottom of the stairs, facing the kitchen and in front of the (drafty) emergency exit. We did ask to change but were offered to squeeze into a deuce near the door (notwithstanding that at the time of arrival there were a number of empty tables, implying that it is necessary to specifically request upstairs when booking).
All evening we were treated to the flip flap of shoes of the stressed servers going up and down the wood stairs and fast walking across the tiled floor – creating a tense and noisy environment. The lighting downstairs is terrible (on the bright side), which doesn't help what was an already clearly stressed atmosphere. And I think it was one of the fastest meals I've had in London. When my mother ordered desert, the server went to the kitchen and came straight back with the desert, no more than 45 seconds later. We had finished our apperitif and three courses in an hour. The food was good, but none of us derived any pleasure from our meal.
After being a semi-regular regular, I would hesitate to return for another perfunctory experience.

It had been a long time since we'd been here, and it was good to return. The service was charming, and I was looked after while my companion was unavoidably very late. The food was very good, with quite a strong Italian influence. There was no problem adapting a dish to avoid allergies. A really enjoyable evening, no hesitation in recommending it, but it was strangely quiet for a Saturday dinner.

A welcome return to Sally Clarke's after too long away, and in the meantime we had forgotten the meaning of freshness, flavour, simplicity, and judgement all of which were in evidence from start to too soon finished. Lack of pretension, positive confidence and understanding of the restaurant's meaning, resulted in a most enjoyable evening. Wine was also splendid and good value for money at the £30 mark (the Barbera d'alba fantastically fruity and fragrant). Try the Bonny Doon desert wine – a Rousanne which was memorable and unlike most benilyn-like after dinner sweets).
