Truly a hidden gem in a city of great restaurants. the menu and wine list are eclectic and well planned. Krista has taken a small, really tiny kitchen and works it like magic. The servers are like family, yet very professional.

or you won't get a table for lunch. It's a fabulous jewel of a restaurant. The sunchoke soup was so good I would have dived in if the bowl had been a bit bigger: it's right up there with their fabled shaved Brussels sprout salad....More

This restaurant just started serving lunch several days a week and is a real must to visit if you like tasty food. The deserts are wonderful. The prices are moderate for such delicious fare. It is some place to go for a delicious leisurely meal.

A sweet restaurant that has a small menu with fresh big tastes. A great place to have a business lunch or to meet a friend and enjoy a long and leisurely meal.

We stumbled on this restaurant which feels like a Parision Bistro. Best food in Portland says a longtime Portlandite. I was on my way to Duck Fat, but very happy to discover this jewel.
