I have celiac disease and the chef was amazing. He was able to tailor any of the dishes to my needs when asked. The quail was amazing! Out of all my travels this place was in my top 10.

One cannot help but be surprised the first time you visit, as the space is definitely small. It becomes quite obvious why it can be difficult to often get a table and why many people walk in and hope to have a shot at eating...More

One of the best meals I've ever enjoyed. Service is excellent. Food is outstanding. Le Pigeon is a "don't miss it" when visiting Portland.

My husband and I went for dinner after having participated in a few wine tastings in the Willamette Valley. As a result, our pallets were a little shot so we came only for food and passed on drinking (although we were tempted by the wine...More

Surprised at the really small size of this bistro-style eatery, something that I never encountered while living in France. So many working in close quarters to make this restaurant function seemed skin to pulling rabbits out of a hat. The ambiance was terrible with music...More

Our 1st (& final) splurge @ this well-respected restaurant. Just NOT a "Fit" for our palate. Our waiter was friendly & obviously a pro who enjoys people. He's the ONLY reason I rated this spot 3 stars. Otherwise, it would have been 2. We had...More

Le Pigeon is one of my favorite restaurants and never disappoints. I went with the Beef Cheek Bourguignon and it was very delicious. Lots of flavor, beef was tender. It was a very satisfying meal. My husband went with the pork-rib eye and he enjoyed...More

Much hotter than expected. Food was served in a pile, not separately as in a la cart so it was difficult to assess what was even in the dish, let alone taste it due to the high level of added spices. Not only was the...More

I thought the 7 course meal was just right (male, 5'11"). You'll have a better chance of filling yourself up (unless you just want to eat bread). I'm not sure about the corkage fee.

It is such a tiny restaurant, if you arrive early enough to be at the front of the line when they open the doors, you can occupy the whole family-style table, so there won't be many other people around making noise. If you... More
