If I would have known they were deep frying the crab cakes, I would have passed. I tried one thinking, oh gosh, what did they do to this?? But it was lovely, full of crab meat, and almost undercooked. mmmmm....... great greens to go with, and I ordered the $5. bread/olive plate with it, and it was perfect. Not enough... More

Does not seem to be a comfortable environment. So let's get to the food. Not that memorable. Let's get to the service. Seems to be hit and miss. Today consistency is important. Return? Maybe. Recommend? Maybe.

This place is really good. We tried the salmon fish and chips, which were excellent. They make their own catsup which was delicious. The martinis were also very good. The Dungeness crab cakes were a little moist for my taste, but my friend loved them, so that is just a matter of preference. Service is a little slow here, so... More

I've lived in Portland for 3 yrs, before that eaten at fabulous restaurants in NYC, London, Paris, LA, throughout France, Italy and Spain. No I am not a foodie, but I know excellent food when I eat it. This place is great. The crab cakes are hands-down the best I have ever had - no fillers as far as I... More

Clemente's is my "go to" restaurant for visiting friends because it has all aspects of fine dining, the chef uses the freshest of local ingredients (which are amazing but especially the locally caught seafood), service is knowledgeable and attentive, good wine selection, great 1920s era dining room etc. We especially like the "chef choice option", my wife will order gluten...

Nice selection of wines, excellent Happy Hour, knowledgeable staff. We didn't make it into the restaurant so we can't vouch for the food.

We eat fresh fish often, being from coastal U.S., but this was so fresh it tasted like it may have just come out of the sea onto my plate. The sashimi tuna was the very best my wife and I have ever tasted. The preparation of the salmon was delicate, not overdone, thoughtful fresh side dishes, very special and perfectly... More

Being a seafood lover that leaves in the land locked state of Arizona, I knew seafood in Astoria was a must. When I arrived at Clemente's I was greeted by friendly staff immediately and was seated promptly. (We are still in basic customer service. It gets better.) After seating me and allowing me to review the menu the waitress went... More

The fish is so fresh and delectable. I got the chef's special which was flash-fried artichokes hearts, grilled salmon on a yam puree and Marion berry sorbet for only $25. Our server was friendly and knowledge about the city, it's history and architecture. A great value and nice dining experience.
