Every course was delicious, and each matched wine was a perfect match and in most cases pleasingly unusual. The service was friendly and informative. Three concerns. 1. As a traditionalist, I tend to think that people working in a fine dining establishment should dress nicely. Not formally, but nicely. When we were there, some did; some did not. 2. Even... More

Went here for a birthday, Great food, lovely layout and the seating arraignment allowed us to meet some great people from out of town. Check it out and read their recommended restaurant list on the wall!

Everything you always wanted in a dining experience. Great food, good wine and pleasant conversation. There is no menu to select from as all the courses are preselected but they were great. Nicely presented, full of flavor and not a clinker in the bunch. Even the desert was good-not overly sweet. I always recommend the wine pairing with these types... More

While in Portland for our anniversary my husband surprised me daily. I had no idea where we would be dining or what the fare would be. Let me say that he surpassed my expectations. The owner and Executive Chef of Beast is Naomi Pomeroy and is a recipient of the coveted James Beard Best Chef award. I am highly impressed!!... More

We went to Beast while we were in Portland and had a very nice evening. They have 2 seatings an evening and we suggest that you go there hungry. The food is very good, but it is also quite rich. By the time we got to the final courses I was hitting a wall. My favorite was the duck course,... More

在我来到这家饭店以前,我很少经历一个只有Omakase的饭店。一般michellin都会给单点的选项,这家很特殊,只有Omakase的选择。 总体来讲,他的食物花了很多心思,但没有惊艳的地步。我无法感到有什么特别惊艳的食物。当然它的价格也相当亲民。 六道菜吃下来却没有印象,十分遗憾。 一人和wine pairing,一人喝水,252 in total,包括小费。

The 6 course dinner (with an extra sample of foie gras) was fantastic! Chef Naomi Pomeroy was there, which made it extra special. The communal dining was fun, meeting a lovely group from Georgia. The wine was yummy also. All in all, a very nice Wednesday evening spent with great food & company!

Decided to go to Beast for brunch with our son home from college for the weekend. Delightful tasting menu, 'even cauliflower tasted good'. Seemed like we might leave a bit hungry, but the courses, though small, were rich and flavorful and we left satisfied. Loved too that although meat is the main attraction (based on the name), vegetables appeared and... More

This place should be the capital of flavor country. Naomi plays her kitchen like a conductor in a symphony. Each round is like a taste bud explosion.

I was expecting this to be very good, but not amazing. It exceeded my expectations. I thought that the shared/communal tables would make me uncomfortable, but I felt like I had a lot of personal space, and it wasn't an issue. The server and wine guy were both very knowledgeable and friendly. The courses were timed appropriately, so it didn't... More
