Just stopped in here for a quick bite and a drink. The taco's were tasty and beer was cold. Nice atmosphere as well.

My friend and I often enjoy happy hour at Mint's 820 bar and our latest was exceptional. Friendly and effective service, good drink recommendations and delicious food. The atmosphere is relaxing with the ambient lighting. I couldn't ask for more.

Mint and 820 are iconic. Lucy is a drink maven. Well earned too. Drinks are well thought out and tasty. Pick one, you will enjoy. I tried the guava cosmo, oh yea. The lamb burger is great--and the caesar salad was also good. Bring friends or go solo. Nice bar--fun areas to sit, good food and drinks. Yup, don't need... More

Came here for some food and to chat with a friend. Service was prompt and friendly. Prices not cheap but reasonable. Food quality was good. I'd recommend the lamb burger and fries. I wouldn't be in hurry to go back but I wouldn't shy away from it either if other friends wanted to come here as I have in the... More

Our party of six decided on lots of appetizers for our dinner. We ordered two of crab cakes, two of chicken skewers with satay sauce, one fried green beans (Hit of the evening), a daily bruschetta, one calimari, and a red pepper hummus plate. The house red wine was a Malbec, average. Martinis and avacado daquiris were good, as were... More

We hadn't been to Mint for several years but found ourselves in the neighborhood this week and decided to stop for an early dinner rather than hit the grocery store during rush hour. We arrived at 4:00, right as happy hour was beginning. Our first impression was that the bar was looking tired. The food that we ordered was tired... More

We met another couple who suggested we dine at Mint. The four of us each had something different but all of us were really happy with our selections. I gave in to the hot(spicy) Caesar salad. it was very good. The location is a little off the beaten path but worth it. Parking was easy and freeway access is good.... More

I went to Mint on Sun evening with 2 girlfriends for happy hour and we had a wonderful time. The server was very attentive and they never let my water glass go empty! (I love that.) The HH menu was great and we got the sweet potato fries, reg fries, tacos (DELISH and HIGHLY recommend them) and calamari. The house... More

It's been two years since I was at Mint820 due to moving. When I visited Portland this year, Mint820 was definitely on my list of places to enjoy, but it was a disappointment. The sweet potato fries were wonderful like always, but the sauce on the lamb burger changed in a not so good way. Doubt I will return unless... More

I recently went to Mint w/ 2 teenage boys and 4 adults. every single one of was satisfied with the food quality and quantity ... we mostly ate off the happy hour menu ... my wife is highly selective of red meat, but she loved the lamb burger only downside was the drinks were a bit inconsistent even the teenagers...
