The bar specials (food and drink) are great at happy hour. The cedar blank salmon, Oregon pinots, and vegetables were very well done. The restaurant is a great venue for business dinners or drinks with friends waiting for the traffic to die down driving into Portland.

We ate there for dinner tonight. Next time I will ask for a booth instead of a table - the booth area atmosphere seems a little nicer than the more open area with the tables. The table area is great for larger groups and they have some large round tables there too. We ordered from the seasonal menu. My husband... More

I have been to happy hour here several times because it's convenient. The bar is nice, the drinks are good, but the food is seriously mediocre. Much of it is greasy or fatty, and for a vegetarian, the options are really limited. I ate dinner here recently, just to see if it was better. Unless you like greasy food, stay... More

I will NEVER go to another corporate chain steak house - particularly this pretentious one that tries to be upscale but misses by a long shot.

The restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere, even with lots of customers, because the seating is sectioned into small sections. It is quiet even with bustling activity. My dish was a pounded breaded steak covered with fresh crab and mushrooms. Others had ribs and fish which they really liked. The accompanying vegetables were fresh and well- prepared. They had an...

Found the food to be good - a little pricey for the type of causal place. Overall good bar area and good service.

Stopped Sunday evening. Our server understood our desire to split our meals for smaller appetites. When our meals came, the portions remained generous and nicely presented on the plates. Though the meals were split, they added extra side portions without extra charge and accommodated us generously and welcomingly. The food was very good!

I was on business in the area and the restaurant was close to the hotel. They had some winter menu specials. I ordered the Pumpkin Seed Pesto-crusted halibut and prawns. What I got was a piece of broiled halibut with pesto sauce that was way too strong for the halibut. The "prawns" were sautéed shrimp with roasted butternut squash. I... More

Service in the bar was a bit slow as there appeared to be only one person taking orders around 4:00. Went for an Anniversary dinner. Just the two of us. Food, drinks and atmosphere were just right.
