Somehow our party of 5 rolled in & onto a communal table, no problem , Friday night. The ovens were stacked & enclosed with hard wood & they burned bright. Was impressed with the breadth of the 50 wine list & the Italian & Pacific NW selection..but the rich fresh tomato gravy on the veggies & the calamari took full... More

Ken's pizza is, without a doubt in my mind, the overall best pizza in Portland. Along with the pizza, there is always some sort of other wood fired dish that is inventive and delicious. I will definitely be back.

Ken makes the best bread and pizza in the USA. His artisan bread is to die for and his pizza is second to only the pizza from Italy I've tasted. A must place to eat if in Portland

I've been making pizza from Ken Forkish's book "The Elements of Pizza". My wife thinks they are the best I've made. So, while visiting Portland we had to try Ken's restaurant, Ken's Artisan Pizza". I'm glad we did. First, his wood fired oven makes a significant difference I cannot replicate until I convince my spouse we need to build one.... More

I am from Portland but now living in Arizona. Every time my husband and I visit Portland we go to Ken's Pizza on SE 28th. They have great thin crust pizza. We had the fennel and sausage with chilies which was delicious.

Before visiting my friend in Portland, he spent 2 weeks telling me this place rivaled pizza in the northeast. Um, no, it doesn't. It's not NYC Pizza, or NJ pizza for that matter, though it's not supposed to be in fairness....so let's compare it to it's natural competitor, New Haven Pizza. Sals in New Haven destroys this place. Pepe is... More

We knew exactly where we wanted to start our Portland trip! We headed straight to Ken's Artisan Pizza for dinner. We enjoyed our "individual" pizzas and had a great first meal in Portland!! We first heard about Ken's from the Right at the Fork Podcast and we are so happy we did. Highly recommended!

My husband and I eat pizza only on rare occasions, and only when we can find it made in an authentic way. Ken's certainly does that. They have a wood-fired oven in the middle of the restaurant and you can watch as the wonderful thin crusts are made by hand as the pizzas are ordered. The toppings were delicious and... More

A new level of pizza! This was the last meal of a week long trip to the area and what a great way to wrap it up! The appetizer of roasted veggies was so flavorful. The pizza menu seemed limited at first glance, maybe 8 pies to choose from with limited toppings but don't be fooled everything is so thoughtfully... More

Let me preface this by saying that because I have two young children, my enjoyment of pizza had all but disappeared. There's no child's birthday party ever attended that does not have bland pizza as it's main offering and as such, my taste buds have become numb to its possible pleasures. I'm one of those people that finds New York... More
