We wandered into this place a night we didn't have reservations and every place was packed. This place was empty except for two other tables (that should have been my first clue). First the positive - the server was excellent. She was friendly, fast with...More

Had dinner there last night. Our party of four had reservations. We entered to a half empty restaurant. We figured out how to seat ourselves and then were ignored for over 30 minutes. A party came in long after us, was seated and served before...More

We hadn't been to the restaurant in a while, and decided to return, and were very disappointed both in the food and state of the restaurant. Everything in the restaurant looks sad and droopy, and the menu is similar. Call in Restaurant Impossible!

I was in a party of 6,the food was superb, all of us agreed on the food & service, clearly one of Portland's best restaurants. Almost everything on the menu is healthy, we'll be returning.

So on the upside our server was very pleasant. But that is about the end of the good points. The restaurant was about half full. We arrived about 6.15 and were seated immediately. The server was pleasant and prompt. She. Took out drink orders and...More

This used to be the only game in town that I knew of for vegetarian options. There food is pretty good. The service all 8+ times I have been there is really bad. Food takes quite a long time. Order more often than not incorrect....More
