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...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...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...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。

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...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...More

This is a small restaurant where you sit family style at two long tables. Expect to be sociable and talk with your neighbors. The meal is fixed times, fixed price and fixed menu, with "substitutions politely declined." We had seven courses along with two small...More

With a name like beast you'd think this is a meat centric place. Not! Sure this fixed price 5 course meal did have one serving of beef but that was about it. I'm not saying the meal was not good just no beasty. The meal...More
