I've read the other reviews of Beast, and I have to say that I fall firmly on the side of the believers in this case. My meal at Beast this weekend was one of the best I've ever had. I found the menu to be a strong reflection of the Pacific Northwest style, plenty of food, and perfect presentation. I... More

We had a business dinner here in early June with people visiting from many states and 4 countries. It is always a risk to take non-foodies to a set menu restaurant, but our dinner really delivered. We had 10 people and at least 3 had never been to a multiple-course restaurant before and I had to explain what some of... More

Set menu with no substitutions may sound intimitading but thats the only way to do it here. The courses were made with fresh and high calibre ingredients and the flavors were amazing. Highly recomend the wine pairings.

While waiting expectantly in line for the second seating, we spoke with a young woman who'd just finished the same meal we were about to have. "A culinary Mount Everest" was how she described her experience. We somehow missed that climb, maybe the Sherpas were on strike? Anyway, the gist of the matter is that, for a restaurant with all...

Great set menu with wine pairing for $114 is a steal for NYers given the quality of the food. The foi gras bon bon on the charcuterie wheel plate was my favorite.

If you don't enjoy communal dining, don't eat here. If you love fresh food prepared with artistry and skill while paired with fine wines, eat here.

1)One of a kind menu, substitution politely declined. 2)About 8 courses, Menu changes weekly. 3)Chef Naomi and her team are impeccable. 4)Shared tables, very rustic and organic. 5)This is the only unique experience you will ever have in PDX. TRUST ME.

I've been wanting to go to Beast for a while. We eat out at nice places quite a bit. But this place is just that step above cost-wise where you have to put your blinkers on. It costs twice what any other really nice dinner costs in Portland. For dinner with wine our bill was $220 before tip. Ouch. Setting:... More
