French inspired cuisine - exquisite food, each dish brimming with tasty flavors, and nicely presented. Make sure to make reservations, it's a small restaurant and fills up in advance. Fabulous foie gras, fresh, colorful salads, creative soups and main courses. Excellent service and a very good wine list too.

Small place, be sure to make a reservation. Great inventive menu and mash-ups. I had short ribs with harissa. My wife had he pigeon breast. The foie gras profiteroles are amazing. They brought us a glass of sauternes to go with them on the house. Service was great and the food was fantastic. Sit at the counter and you can... More

This meal was truly astonishing. A feast for the senses. I had the beef cheek bourguignon as my main entree and the Foie Gras Profiteroles for dessert. Amazing! I sat at the chefs counter and got to watch them work their magic up close. It was a fantastic experience. Very highly recommended.

The worst food we have had in Portland! Unidentifiable incongruous ingredients. Who is in the kitchen? Please taste and you will see something has gone terribly wrong here!!!

Don't let the common tables be off-putting. The restaurant is relaxed, warm, fun, totally a great experience. Staff is super knowledgeable. You leave wondering how they do what they do in such a small place.

I have been trying to get reservations for the four of us for about a year. Le Pigeon seems to be always booked up. It was baffling to me until we actually had the pleasure of eating there. Now I understand totally and have already made my next reservation for a few months from now. My husband and I, along... More

We are serious foodies and we were not disappointed with the ambiance or the food or the service. We had the Ahi Tartare with Pork Ribs with a Foie Gras ice cream for dessert. The flavor in the pork ribs was intense but well balanced. All of the items on the plate complemented the ribs so that every time you... More

Despite - with hindsight - ordering far from the best things the kitchen was turning out, I did enjoy the food. The chefs are clearly talented and the menu is short (a good thing in my book). Portland is a friendly city and my neighbours were open to chatting....something about an election, can't remember if it was important or not.... More

Going into our reservation, I was excited. Generally, when you're hyped up for something, it's a let down because it just can't match or beat your expectations. Pigeon however... Took my expectations, wrapped them in duck liver, deep fried them, stuffed them in a canon, and shot them across the gorge. The tasting menu was sized perfectly. Sometimes you get... More
