Visited with friends for a belated birthday outing and had the most fantastic time. We opted for the tasting menu which was paired with wine and consisted of 6 courses with shared plates.

There are few places in Portland where you can feel like you are in a quiet spot that no one knows about (volume in restaurants is an issue in this town, I know, I live here). This is one of them. I've gone here both in groups and with individuals. Each time the service was excellent. On one occasion we... More

The value proposition is terrible. The prices are sky high and the food is below average. The service was good.

Nothing to criticize and lots to love at this small, innovative restaurant in NE Portland. Enter through the tiny open kitchen to a warm greeting. Great wine list with many hard to find Italians and the knowledge to recommend great pairings. Fabulous and perfectly cooked pastas, lamb and more. But the piece de resistance was without question the brûléed chicken... More

I loved the 6 course tasting menu. My wife and I wound up with the oysters,bread and olives, 2 salads, 2 pasta dishes, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts for $60.....the portions were very generous for that price and the dishes were prepared to perfection. For entrees we had the king salmon fillet and the lamb chop....each excellent. Service was very... More

We were visiting my daughter in Portland, and she had always wanted to try DOC, but the $60 six course tasting menu was not exactly in her budget, so it was a special treat to enjoy such an amazing meal during our visit! The service was perfect, the restaurant was intimate and peaceful, and the food was over-the-top fabulous. The... More

But it was just not a great experience. Started by being seated right next to the w/c. We had reservations and were kind of surprised that we were sat where we were, given that two other two tops right near the front sat vacant the entire evening. Anyway, we started with oysters, delicious. That was about where the deliciousness ended... More

6/23 - intimidation started when our friend was going to be late, since serving will not start until everyone is seated. so we were ignored until she arrived. They did not asked if we wanted a drink while we waited. $20 lost opportunity. Flagged down staff to order drinks. They were aloof not busy. While enjoying the cold drinks wife... More

DOC is a small, intimate, sexy restaurant on NE 30th "Restaurant Row" in Portland. You enter through the kitchen, which is part of the dining room. Owner Dayna McErlean has designed the interior simply and beautifully with black chandeliers, custard walls and original art from Elizabeth Leach Gallery. The chefs create stunning dishes in a small kitchen, without noise and... More

Italian-based cuisine, featuring local/regional ingredients, and the best Italian wine list in Portland; this is a consistent, white-tablecloth small restaurant that never fails. We have been going here for special occasions for several years and the food and service never disappoints! Although it is small - you walk through the tiny kitchen to get to the dining area - you...
