Had a late weekday lunch here and we just loved it. Great ambiance. The food was so delicious. I had a braised pork on roasted delicata squash that was absurdly good. My wife's chicken fried trout was the same. Too bad their parent restaurant wasn't...More

Good wine list with mostly French and a bit of Pacific Northwest. But if you like foie gras, this was the very best I have ever eaten. We both enjoyed the King Salmon special and it was perfect. The chef at Little Bird really rocks!

This French bistro outshined a famous seafood restraint, an excellent Jalanese restaurant and an excellent Italian restaurant on our dinner tour of Portland. The charcuterie platter for 4 was the best I’ve ever had, featuring small but exquisite servings of liver pate, pork rillon, salmon...More

I've gone past Little Bird for years ... in a very urban, and not very appealing part of downtown Portland. (It's ugly.) But on a Tuesday afternoon, I decided to duck in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The menu is pricey, so if you...More

I hosted a group upstairs for a corporate lunch. As we know, heat rises and it became very hot up there. They brought in fans for us. I thought they handled it well.
