We had a great meal. The salad and calamari was tasty. We shared 3 pizzas with a group of 5, which was perfect. The desserts were excellent, especially the panna cotta, bread pudding, and the terrine. They have a decent wine selection (although they were out of the wine we wanted). We had to wait an hour to be seated... More

Apizza Scholls serves my favorite pizza but Ken's ranks a solid second. The soppressata, a spicy Italian cured dry salami, is my favorite. It takes only a few minutes for the pizzas to cook in Ken's wood-burning oven. Service is great and I like how the restaurant is located in a neighborhood. Like Apizza Scholls, a line usually forms outside... More

It's difficult to criticise a place that makes fresh pizza well and serves a good Chanti. That's why this isn't going to be a critical review. My visit was a quite unique one as it was in a blind date and I was supposed to be going next door, but it was closed, so that was my good fortune. Blind... More

I have been baking bread and pizza using Ken Folkish's book "Flour, Water, Yeast and Salt" for three years now and was very excited to visit both his bakery and pizza restaurant in Portland. I went to the bakery twice and was thoroughly impressed with the breads and the patisserie items--first-rate French-style baking. The New Yorker Pizza at Ken's Artisan... More

Kens is always consistently Good. Pizza wine and a Caesar salad for New Year's Eve was perfect. The restaurant was somewhat busy atmosphere was very beautiful and the waiter great.

Arrived 5 minutes before opening time and the line was already around the corner. No matter, we were seated quickly after the doors were opened. We shared a generous and delicious Caesar salad -- more than enough for two. Great bottle of aged Chianti. Pizzas were perfect -- burned around the edges from the wood fired oven. AND, we met...

Somehow our party of 5 rolled in & onto a communal table, no problem , Friday night. The ovens were stacked & enclosed with hard wood & they burned bright. Was impressed with the breadth of the 50 wine list & the Italian & Pacific NW selection..but the rich fresh tomato gravy on the veggies & the calamari took full... More

Ken's pizza is, without a doubt in my mind, the overall best pizza in Portland. Along with the pizza, there is always some sort of other wood fired dish that is inventive and delicious. I will definitely be back.

Ken makes the best bread and pizza in the USA. His artisan bread is to die for and his pizza is second to only the pizza from Italy I've tasted. A must place to eat if in Portland
