Two words....amazing poutine. Be sure to add the duck confit! Our paninis were delicious as well and the place is just so charming. I’m so excited to have finally made it here. It definitely lived up to the hype!

I had heard about this restaurant before coming to Portland, and since it was right behind my hotel and was full of people, I thought it would be a good experience.
Meh.
Fries cooked in duck fat were nothing to write home about.
Chopped romaine salad that claimed to contain snap peas, dilly beans, dried olive, goat Gouda, garlic crumb, red onion, and a red wine vinaigrette actually contained snap peas, dilly beans, 3 tiny pieces of cheese, no olive, no garlic crumb, and red cabbage.
It was not the salad I ordered.
The cherry phosphate was very good.
I would not return.

The most amazing french fries I've ever had. The place is typically very busy and you almost always will have a wait. But overall it is so worth it for the fries and milkshakes. The paninis were also great, though they were all out of the duck one. Will definitely be back!

We had a good lunch at Duckfat. Ordered a Cuban and a Meatloaf sandwich with a side of Belgian fries. The fries were excellent with truffle ketchup and garlic mayo.

The restaurant is a bit small with a high demand, be prepared to sit with others.

The frites and poutine are amaaaazing. So are the milkshakes. The place was packed and the vibe was fun. I can see why it was a must-try foodie spot in Portland on almost every blog/website when I looked for recommendations.
