Yum! My gluten free husband had a great selection, deciding on the Mussels. He loved it. I had the local Squid, yum. Service was fantastic. Highly recommend this venue.

Recommended by friends as one of the best in Portland. Umfortunately 8 out of 10 of us were disappounted. The serving size is small. Side salad dish did not come out with the main course.

Food average but service appalling. ..have been several times before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lack of service to the table. Non smiling waitress, mixed up orders. Doubt if would return. Disappointed.

Group of 5, food was great. Will definitely be returning when back in Portland. Most of the table ordered the beef Wellington and they loved it. Quail entree was delicious and good selection of wines.

Thought the food here was great and the service pretty good even though they were busy. Wine list wasn't extensive but still had some good selections.

Staff was attentive and entertained our chatter. Food was unbelievably good, we went for breakfast as dinner was out of our budget. Good sized serving, was not disappointed in the slightest, cannot find a bad word.
