I visited this restaurant during PDX Dining Month and I was really impressed with the service. It was a busy night but the food was excellent and the service was impeccable.

Recommended by a staff person at our hotel. Went with a good appetite and left with disappointment. Wait staff very friendly and accommodating. Kitchen needs a new staff or they need to change their menu. The Coq a Vin was certainly a poor representation of French cuisine. The gnocchi was tasty but over cooked.

We were fortunate to get a late-evening reservation on a weekend night at Little Bird Bistro. They pack in a lot of tables, but it doesn't feel overly crowded, and on the night we were there, our fellow diners were happy and friendly. We took advantage of the Dine Out Portland prix fixe menu, which was both delicious and a... More

Went to Little Bird Bistro with friends during Portland dining month. Have been wanting to go there for months but it was hard to get a reservation because it is so popular. Now I know why it is so popular. The food was excellent. The service was good. There was an extensive wine list which is on the pricey side.... More

What a charming restaurant. It's in an older Portland in the building and they have kept as much of the vintage feel as possible. Local food items, with lots of choices for every appetite. A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it. I'd go back in a minute.

Had dinner here with some friends from work, and had an excellent meal. I ordered the multiple course special; which was gnocchi, then cod, and then panna cotta for dessert. From the beer to the bread to each course of my meal, everything was excellent, all in a very nice atmosphere with good service. I will say that serving sizes... More

Last year when I went to Little Bird, it was my favorite restaurant. This year? Not so much. The starter salad was great, the entree was not exciting and the dessert was odd. They definitely do not cater to the gluten free patrons. Last year I had their cassoulet and it was fantastic! They have a very high corkage fee... More

Consistently highly rated for years, this place is known for its great dinner menu, but it is also a great lunch stop. Come early, unless you have reservations. More seating outside if its not raining (Yes there are sunny days in Portland). Must have reservation in the evening. However, sitting at the bar can be fun. Every course is fantastic.... More

I’ve been to Little Bird many times (mainly for Happy Hour) and have never been disappointed until this last meal. I ordered the $34 Flatiron steak. The sauce was AMAZING! But….. there were only 5 little pieces of steak. It was somewhat cold by the time it was delivered to me. I assume it sat for some time before someone... More

I don't think I've ever paid so much for so little. My friends and I just shared appies and sides as we weren't all that hungry. The mushrooms were delicious and so was the cheese plate - although minimal portions of both. The scallop (notice that was not plural) was not even seared, barely warm and just kind of sat... More
